I have successfully updated my SuperPAD from Firmware: deb-r2.1.1170 to Firmware: deb-r2.1.1561 and it only took 15 minutes, eight (8) minutes to download at 54 bps and seven minutes to install the downloaded "update.zip" file. It was a completely automatic factory upgrade using the on-board "System Update" app. I know my proceedure is probably overkill, but I wanted to remove any possibility of a glitch in that factory supported proceedures from China are virtually non-existent. Here we go with the step by step: How to do an Automatic Factory Update on the SuperPAD 1. Find and Record (write it down!) your Registration Code (Settings -> About Device -> Certification). 2. Connect a really good USB WIFI Adapter (Rokland N3) to USB Port #1 (Upper Most). 3. If you do not have it, download MyBackup Pro (no rooting required) from The Market. 4. From The Market run any Updates being shown for your Apps. 5. Turn Off Email Notifications (Email -> Menu -> Settings -> Email Notifications). 6. Turn Off the GPS (Settings -> Location & Security) 7. Force Stop any running applications (Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications) 8. Except for Android Keyboard and UpdateService; Stop all other running services (Settings -> Applications -> Running Services). 9. Using your normally installed SD Card in Slot #1 (Top-most slot, between the Two USB Ports); run a Backup of Apps and Data and then remove the SD Card. 10. Again, using Slot #1, insert another dedicated Backup Only SD Card; backup Apps and Data to it as insurance against possible loss of the initial backup you made to your other SD card. 11. Remove the upper slot SD Card (Top-most slot, between the Two USB Ports). 12. Remove any installed lower slot SD Card (Bottom-most slot, between USB and HDMI Ports). 13. Connect Battery Charger to SuperPAD. 14. Set screen (Settings -> Sound & Display Settings -> Screen Timeout) to Never time out. 15. Reduce screen brightness to Med (Optional unless not charging battery). 16. Choose your System Update app. Note: If the download Fails, try at least two more times before giving up. It will take about seven (7) minutes to do the Install (Three Auto-Restarts). When auto-install is finished, select Setup Wizard to go to Desktop. 17. You will need to re-enter the registration code. Mine would not install the original code, said it was already in use. I Need to request a new registration code from vendor. 18. Go to The Market and download MyBackup Pro again so you can Restore your apps and data from the SD Card backup. 19. Go to Settings -> Applications -> and then Check to activate Unknown Sources. 20. Restore the Apps and Data from your backup SD Card, in Slot #1. 21. Go to Settings -> Applications -> and then De-activate Unknown Sources. 22. Upgrade is Complete. Hope this is helpful.
