    Flytouch III Superpad II 10.2" Android Tablet
    Hi, Fathercainz here.....new member to the forums, and so far enjoying it VERY much.

    My question: Recieved an Android Tablet for Xmas believed to be a Flytouch III Superpad II however I am not certain!! Need help identifying what it is I actually have!

    Looking to root this tablet, if possible, and don't want to root it incorrectly!!

    Help IS appreciated and thanks in advance.

    Specs:
    Model Number: P001 RTL8188-20111206
    Android Version: 2.3.3
    Baseband Version: Unknown
    Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7-infoTM root@ice #53
    Build Number: GRI40
    Buttons: On/Off, Volume, Menu, Home, Wifi
    Slots: 9V charge, ethernet, hdmi, usb, (1) microsd, usb, headphone jack.

    Is there any way to enhance this model besides adding the 32gb sdmicro card which I have on the way?

    Hi Fathercainz, welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new tablet. I'm pretty sure the folks in the SuperPAD Tablets forum will be able to determine exactly what you've got there. I'm moving your thread over there for you, so they'll be sure to see it can discuss the tablet with you. Good luck and continue to enjoy the new tablet.

    UNfortunatly i'ved tried all roms and none of them work. Is there any firmware for this tablet? Please help.

    The closest i'ved got is with the p041 rom, but it has no sound, the g-sensor is stuck sideways and the battery meter always shows charging

    Hi greyerash Do you have the same Flytouch as the one Fathercainz and I have ?
    Android Version: 2.3.3
    Baseband Version: Unknown
    Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7-infoTM root@ice #53
    Build Number: GRI40

    If so you said you got the P041 onto it..Can you tell me how you got it to boot from the SD Card? What buttons did you hold down because I feel like I held every combo there is (-:

    Thanks

    It's the same tablet, model P001. You need winhex to make a bootable sd card, at least that's what i did, and then flash the p041 rom. But like i said: no sound, the g-sensor is stuck sideways and the battery meter always shows charging

    My information is all the same, I received mine last night. The only difference I noticed was mine is root@ice #54. Has anyone had any progress on finding better firmware/roms/drivers for this? I noticed last night my M17X laptop didn't recognize my tablet when I plugged it in... Also, when I press the power button to make it sleep, it just resets. Thus far, my girlfriend has been pretty disappointed in it and I can't find any decent work arounds...

    SURRENDER YOUR DEVICE AND ALL ITS SOFTWARE TO ME IMMEDIATELY!!!
    Kidding, of course. :rolleyes:
    Actually you have EXACTLY what (one of) mine said when I first got it... unfortunately the sofware on mine was hosed and it is sitting around 'waiting for help' of its own.

    I CAN tell you that you (almost certainly) have a DK1031L board, running Gingerbread. As Gingerbread is different from the older ones (even the 'gingerbread-sprinkled froyo') you need to get an apk called GINGERBREAK to root it. It is actually quite easy to handle, but you MUST find and activate the USB DEBUGGING...
    On my 'other Gingerbread Man' (Shep... all tablets named after the 3(4) Stooges...) it is found by:
    SETTINGS
    APPLICATIONS
    DEVELOPMENT
    There you will find USB Debugging... enable it, then run Gingerbreak.

    That should work for you!
    ... and I wish I could steal your NOR flash... where the U0 'lives'.
    Did you by any chance get a copy of the firmware (AND U0) for it? Just curious... :p

    Right now there are no other upgrades that Im aware of... there are ALOT of 'custom ROMs' but it is HIT/miss if they will work with this board.
    Good luck... and if you find something better than 2.33 (and I doubt you will!), come back here and say so! PLZ!!! :D

    Now SEE????
    If I had read thru the entire post, I wouldnt have had to 'rob you at gunpoint'!!! :p
    but,
    Does the download INCLUDE U0?
    Um... you DO realize you wrote 2.2..... right? NVM... comes from PAGE, not entry!:rolleyes:

    .... and exactly HOW did you install it? By SD card or IUW?
    (downloading now.... can hardly wait!) :D

    EDIT: Have we been conned?

    The kernel on this download is 2.6.32.9!!! NOT 35.7-infotm as expected!

    Greyerash... please check your 'ABOUT DEVICE' and confirm that it says GRI40 THERE!!!
    Thx! :D

    SuperPad III P001

    Hello! I have the P1001 model. I decided to upgrade firmware. I was unable to do it with SD Card. Unfortunately I hadn't heared about WinHex and I updated it with IUW burning tool (With P041 firmware). It was complete disaster! Now my SuperPad III (as box says) is completely bricked! :mad: I can't even connect it with my PC using OTG interface. The LED on motherboard is lighting when I turn on it, but no sound, no vibration, screen is black. But the light is my last hope.
    To cut it short: HOW TO USE JTAG WITH flytouch3? How did you do a "partial recovery"?
    Please, answer my question if you can. Any offer would be great help.

    I am at this point with 'a few' tablets I have... and have not YET ventured into the JTAG effort...

    You are CERTAIN that you cannot connect to IUW using the usual method? (MENU+PWR), connect, green box on IUW?

    Did you allow it to change the U0 too?

    If you CAN get it to talk to IUW respond here... I may be able to help. Else, welcome aboard. IF I EVER get my 'issues' resolved Ill let you know.
    I CAN tell you that there is a 12-pad connector on the CPU daughterboard that is SUPPOSEDLY for JTAG... but I am too blind to do it myself and I have not spent the $$ to have someone else do it yet.

    Perhaps that helps? :D

    I tried several times but there is not green box in IUW. As I remember, I changed U0 too. After that it can not connect to pc.
    Thank you for your reply. I will continue research...
    I found 15 / 15 pin on board, and also TXD2 and RXD2 and GND pins too. There are also TD3 and RXD3, VDD 3.3V too.
    Also I found GPSRTC, GPS33 and GPS_RESET too.
    $Image524.jpg $Image529.jpg $Image531.jpg

    By the way when I wanted to use GPS it was stamped in China. That's why I decided to update/upgrade ROM.
    GPS_RESET needs more investigation.
    If I found out more I'll post...
    Thank you again.

    It looks like it was designed for a USB-type GPS device to be installed by wires... from what I can see, it does NOT have GPS on it right now...
    You would likely NOT have needed to reprog it... GPS would likely have come up anyway, once the hardware was put in/on... :(

    I do not recognize this board... You HAVE found the onboard serial ports (tx/rx2 tx/rx3) but if it is locked up as you imply they would not be responding either... (have a couple of those)...
    If you make any progress, please post it here! Good luck! :D

    I'm newbie to Android tablets. I found out that MX29LV400BTC-90 is a 4 MB PARALLEL NAND FLASH. In my case it is 48 TSOP. I just need to know:
    If I had this chip flashing with correct uboot-nand.bin, would I achieve OTG connection? Or:
    Is there any other chip that has a influence with OTG?
    I think I have found a correct firmware. My model is P001 and I think this firmware(3rd one) will work OK.

    If reflashing MX29LV400BTC-90 will make a change there is another problem. This firmware doesn't include uboot-nand.bin file. It only has: ramdisk, system, uImage, updater, userdata, and zSYS.

    And by the way, which chip(s) is(are) responsible for vibration at start up?

    Has anyone figured out how to fix a brick on the superpad 2 (mine has 2 sd card slots and 2 usb ports) using jtag as im not confident enough to unsolder the bios chip and Dont have a programmer anyways.

    Does anyone know where I can get the jtag cable needed as well and if it would need a computer with a serial port or if i could do it using my laptop using usb (i have both but would prefer the laptop)

    Detailed instructions would be a huge bonus for me and im sure quite a few others as well.

    Thanks in advance
