    Just bought this device, and noticed an upgrade available on the mfg's website - but cannot find instructions. Can someone enlighten me as to how to perform the upgrade? I assume you copy the *tar.gz file to the internal SDCard, reboot into recovery (?). TIA.

    From that page

    " Download the firmware you want, extract it and copy the entire folder called"dload" to a SD card, put it in your device and re-boot. You will see the ROM"dload" to a SD card, put it in your device and re-boot. You will see the ROM upgrade in process and at the end you will see a OK message. Take the card upgrade in process and at the end you will see a OK message. Take the card out and reboot, the only way you can is by removing the battery. You are al set. If you forget to take the card out it will go back into the ROM upgrade mode. Reply * Rep"

    Just a small point.
    The firware that I downloaded extacted without a dload folder and to anyone who gets to that stage just create a new folder call dload in the root dir of your sdcard.You need to copy UPDATA.APP and unlmt.cfg into this folder.
    Important note.
    DO NOT COPY once.cfg

    If you do then the update will write version number into the OEMINFO area of the device and
    NO FURTHER UPGRADE WILL BE POSSIBLE
    You have been warned and I think this info deserves a bold sticky!
