    I will try to break it to you as gently as possible. You bought a bottom of the rung Tablet. It has a processor and design which is like a Vespa compared to the Porsche powered Galaxy Tablet. You will not find a Firmware for this tablet which is 2.2. You will likely find, with research, a compatible Donut FW which may have more features. But you should learn to live with what you have.

    If you review the forum, this is not the first or last time this very same question which has been asked

    From what i have read i can get the mhz up to like 576 by changing the FW but the problem is i have no idea how to find the correct firmware that is compatible?
    Also this may be a dumb question but whats a donut firmware?

    you cannot push it to 576mhz since i think you have a flytouch, with root and setcpu you can push it to 400mhz.

    Android 1.5 = Cupcake
    Android 1.6 = Donut
    Android 2.0/2.1 = Eclair
    Android 2.2 = Froyo

    You cannot upgrade Android 1.6 to Android 2.0 or even 2.2 coz thats not supported.

    Post your Build number and ram so we can point to your where you can download a rom suitable for your tablet.

    Donut is the Android versions. As of the end of Nov 2010, there are only four Android versions released at this time.
    Cupcake-1.5
    Donut-1.6
    EClair-2.0 Release 1 (Usually called 2.1)
    Froyo-2.2
    Future unreleased versions are 2.3/3.0=Gingerbread and 3.0/3.01=Honeycomb

    What you are describing can be done once you have truly determined which VIA 8505 unit you have. Search on TipStir's posts and his posts provide a great help for low powered/low cost tablets. He also has his own web page too. Just move over to the VIA forum and search for Tipstir. You will find what you are looking for in regards to FW.

    guess you just have to wait until it arrives. u can see the fw and build number when you boot it up..

    btw... take note of whether it vibrates when you turn it on... it is quite important

    Lol it never occurred to me that its still being shipped. Once you get a hold of your tablet you can look for the build number.
