    I have a chinese brand tablet, Onda VX610W. It did not come preinstalled with Market so I flashed the latest firmware from their website and installed Market 3.3.11. The market app works fine browsing it and downloading but when it goes to install an app it immediately crashes. The status bar still shows installing but there is no progress even letting it just sit for awhile. I've already cleared cache and data for market, there's no secure folder on either the internal or external memory. What is interesting is my tablet creates an SDcard mount from its internal memory called /mnt/sdcard and the microSD I have in there is /mnt/exteral_sd. It seems strange but I don't know if this has anything to do with it. Maybe it is the Firmware I flashed being that they do not use Market in China but I've read in a couple places that they've "updated the firmware and got market working" they left out how they did it though, but I know its possible! Any help?

    PS: I'm assuming I don't need to root my device... or do I? How can I tell? Sorry I'm pretty tech saavy but I'm brand new to tablets.

    I'm pretty new at this, but I do have a few ideas.
    First, you don't need to root it to work.
    The other thing I was thinking was that you may need a newer version of the Google Framework. I'm not sure where you get that because it is installed on the unit from the factory.
    I'd check with the market folks to see if that is a requirement...
    or I may be totally off track...

    I checked and it is already installed and it cannot be uninstalled. I hardreset the device, chnged back to english to read the dang thing and reinstalled market... same thing... crashes on installing any app. My logic of Windows OS is failing me at why Android is so different.

    I don't have any idea from here. The big guns are going to have to step in to help with this one.
    As far as the OS, Android is not that much like Windows, it's more like Linux and Unix. If you understand those, android is much easier to transition to, as far as the deeper technical aspects.

    I have the same problem as NIK1990, the Android Market immediately crashes when installing an application.
    I root my tablet, I emptied the cache of the android market, I have installed several versions 2.3, 3.0.11, 3.0.12, but nothing works.

    I put the latest firmware (form here) from the manufacturer but it changes nothing.

    Someone would have it another idea?

    I just installed the latest firmware (2.0.4 from here) for my Android tablet Onda Vi30W Deluxe and the android market is included in it and works very well.

    Do the test and tell me if it solved your problem.

    To root your Vi30W use SuperOneClick, you can find it here.

    Have a nice day

    Hi,

    With help from a non-techie friend who can read Chinese and Google translate, we have made a quick guide (added some info from experience of 6 failed attempts before finally succeeding). Unfortunately, I am not very good with my documentations and i did not do the screen shots. Hope this helps those who are trying to perform firmware upgrade.

    Feel free to add/improve this documentation. I have only successfully tested these on my own Win XP PC and Vi30W Deluxe version 2 tablet and Firmware version 2.0.4 (Vi30W豪华版_v2.0.4扩容版固件(仅适用于V2版机型)).

    Thoughts on the device: Certainly see some improvements with this latest firmware. Handling experience is still no where near as polished an iPad, but it is certainly great value for money.

    Cheers,
    J

    Hello,
    I just recently purchased a VX610W Deluxe. It came with 2.0.4 version firmware, and the Android Market works all ready.

    tomokomiki (or anyone else), are you using the latest version 2.0.5 firmware? For upgrading, did did you follow similar steps that pphjl mentioned? I'm a newbie when it comes to tablets. :)

    I do notice a strange thing with my VX610W Deluxe when I plug it in to charge. If I power the tablet off while plugged in, it powers itself back on in a few seconds. Is this normal? Does anyone else have this happen to their tablet?

    Thanks for any information!

    Hi, I've been reading through several forums, Chinese and English, and it seems that upgrading the firmware will solve the problem. I've been going to the onda official website to try and download the file, but I've only got 404 for every link they have. Did anyone have a problem? Or if someone who already has the file, could you possibly put it on megaupload or something and share it on here. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Razgriz,
    Which firmware are you trying to download? The one for the VX610W Deluxe? (http://file2.mydrivers.com/ondata/download/driver/oamp3/VX610WP/VX610WP_v2.0.5.rar)

    Even though I am not having any problems with the Market, I am going to attempt to upgrade mine from 2.0.4 version firmware to 2.0.5.

    Thanks.

    hey aznmidnite,

    thanks for helping. I actually dled the file from a different cpu but I couldn't install the program as per instructions given.

    Thanks for the translations. But I need your help here. I'm at the part where you have to manually install the USBdriver. What do I have to do? I'm stuck right now. I've tried several times to uninstall the driver, plug it in, and install the driver manually. But it still popped up with the textless alerts. How'd you get around it? I'm using a X86 Windows 7.
