    Hi New here an new to android tablets,

    I won a Furious 7" tablet. seems to be a generic Chinese clone using an IMAPX200 processor.

    From new the volume control in the software (confirmed by disassembling and eliminating the mechanical buttons) permanently drives to full volume this leaves a media volume pop-up on screen all the time and cause the unit to beep repeatedly. Also the unit is registered on my google account as being on China telecom which makes Market pretty useless.

    I don't have the option of returning the device, so would like to try re-installing the operating system.

    So far I have managed to root the unit and have terminal emulator working.

    This allowed me to get the HWVER (0.5.0.6) but I can't find any matching updates or software versions

    From device information:-

    Model Number :- m799ca V2.2
    Android Version :- 2.3.3
    Baseband version :- unknown
    Kernel Version :- 2.6.35.7-InfoTM neville@neville-desktop #7
    Build Number :- m799ca-eng 2.3.3 GRI40 eng.petter.20111201.143607 test-keys

    Hwver 0.5.0.6

    I would like a uk compatible operating system either 2.3 or 2.2 but can't seem to find one.

    This is the device I have :- Furious 7" 1GHz CPU Android 2.3 Tablet MID ePad Flash 10.1 1080P HDMI 4GB Android Market WiFi Facebook Skype: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Pete.

    Pete -

    Welcome to the forum, for a newbie you already have done a pretty deep dive it looks like. I am going to refer you to the InfoTmic sub-forum here: Infotmic Based, which would be the correct one for your particular device.

    Glad to have you here!

    Cheers,
    Peter

    Pete,

    thanks for the reply,

    I did a load of research before I posted as I know how frustrating it can be when noobs ask the same question over and over.

    Pete.
