    Backup your programs using Titanium Backup and your files to a Dropbox before following this.
    The update servers are getting overloaded so I recommend doing a manual install (more likely to wipe files and programs but I can verify this works)

    Download this file, write it to a fat32 micro sd (ensure the update.zip file is the only one on the card!) then get into the recovery menu (menu and vol + I think), choose update from zip... Leave it for a bit and it should work

    If it doesn't work clear the cache etc... (from the recovery menu)

    You can find your registration code at Settings-about device-certificate. It's a very long number (I personally just took a screenshot and put it in my dropbox)

    Hope this helps,
    Richardo

    Avoid using any apps while downloading. It took long enough to download. I had it sitting next to computer and kept an eye on it all evening.


    Skype official page says it supports 2.1 and up.
    I can confirm Skype works (on the test call at least). Haven't tried a video call - don't expect it to work.

    I've rooted the pad with z4root [APP] z4root - xda-developers so far I have only done a temporary root.
    Used 'MyBackup Root' to save all my apps and data to the SD card.
    I was able to install off the SD card once the system had updated (without having to download from market)
    Still had to enter in all my details into aps (email address etc)

    Yeah, I had this a lot toward the end of the download, from about 90% up. Traffic must have increased around this time. Had to keep hitting pause and it restarted.

    Stock aps are updated. As Skype is now working, I would say they have fixed up a few bug fixes.
    No changelog that I can see, so can't really give more detail.

    Still undecided on this... 12hours for 80MB is too long to d/l, if I had to do it again I wouldn't bother....
    Having said that, with Skype now working I am pleased, so this is a bonus.

    That's pretty true...

    Root your phone (link above), use any of the market apps, Titanium backup, mybackup root, etc (search backup in Market). When updated you can go back in a install aps. I think there is an app called appinstaller which will do this for you, but I haven't used it. I use mybackup root, which is supposed to restore device. Before I upgraded (while on 1170) it did not work, so i didn't try it on 1561 - however, after I re-installed aps, it looks like the restore function of mybackup root now works (so wasted some of my time...)


    Haven't noticed problems with WOW reader or screen refresh. Will update if I notice any problems.
    Have had a couple of freeze ups, which lasted for 15-20 seconds, one when I opened Skype and one when using root explorer. Otherwise no trouble.

    Is this what you're after?

    I use Dolphin HD, so far visited around 10 pages. The last one crashed just as you note above. Not sure about this...

    Agree.


    Good advice.


    And for my final comment. Those of you that don't want to sit around for 12 hours downloading the update, use this link:

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5010016/update_f.zip

    or
    deb-r2.1.1568_update_zip.zip

    If you have any further questions about the update just ask.

    IMHO the update is ok but certainly not worth wasting your day.

    I'm using LauncherPro, so can't report on wowhome (Renamed wowhome.apk to wowhome.apkz http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/gome-flytouch-ii/4881-wowhome-wowpad-experience.html )

    I would say performance is around the same - if it is better it isn't too noticeable (maybe 10%??).
    Looks like they have prettied up the apps a little, this is the SD wowFileManager;
    $2011-1-16-8-7-26.jpg

    Hoping this to be more stable than 1170, as I had green screen twice and kernel panic twice.
    I'll send any further findings through later today.

    John

    Thanks peeps. I may update just to get the Skype and SIP working nicely. Although I bought the tab pre-rooted, I'm kinda looking forward to rooting it myself. I am, however, going to wait until I have found the registration slip so I can re-register it post-update.

    Cheers.
    Grant. :)

    Have you turned off then on again? Does it get stuck at the same place again?
    Hold down power for 10 secs to force off. Wait a min then power on again.

    Ok, so I went through the whole day-long download, did my backups, turned loose the update on my tablet, put back all my apps... I can't see what I went through all that for.

    Unless you are looking to correct some problem or directly address the (very) few improvements (Skype, VOIP, etc) I recommend you just leave your working tablet alone.

    Perhaps some day Android and iOS will get a grip on the idea of making OS upgrades/changes -without- wiping apps and user settings. There, I'm done, thanks for reading :)

    You may have a corrupted d/l of the update. Try this one, deb-r2.1.1568_update_zip.zip

    Sorry to hear its taking so long for you guys to download. Mine only took four hours lol. I can confirm that Skype is now working but the only other real change I can find is alot of the text is now English instead of Chinese.

    The CCplayer now allows you to play from flashdrives/external storage... That's the one update I've really been looking for. The wifi also connects faster...
