    I purchased the S7-201w from Best Buy and tried to flash it with this ROM but in the middle of the upgrade it restarts and just keeps upgrading.
    It looks like its working until it gets to the middle of the upgrade process then it just resets and starts the upgrade process again.

    Now the unit won't load so I need to find a way to flash it without restarting in a loop. Any Android Gurus have some insight on my issue?

    sorry to hear that. i can not verify the file because i don't have the slim.

    i am downloading the file (just curious what is inside this huge 243MB file), but my download stop at 99% and waiting to resume.

    you need a ROM, try to download again the file. if it does the same, i don't know if ideos s7 froyo ROM will work on S7 slim, need expert opinions.

    EDIT: finish my download but i have corrupted file. are you sure you have completed download?

    No it's not - the one that Best Buy ships with was different (that's why I flashed it, I had problems logging into GMAIL Account and Market and noticed the version of the Build was S7-201u, the device is the S7-201w)

    My download has finished and I extracted the dload folder with the UPDATA.APP and the unlmt.cfg files inside.
    I am thinking it might have to do with the unlmt.cfg file?

    i tried download again for 2nd time, and tried to flash to flash to my old S7, (it should be fit because they have the same ROM size), but it FAILED at 40% progress bar with green/red light blinking fast.

    it could be DEFECTED UPDATA.APP

    @bmwm5
    sorry for that.
    but you need a ROM now. i don't know if S7 froyo will work on S7 slim.

    This file has the once.cfg file not unlmt.cfg so if you did the update with once.cfg it will be forever.
    My sugestion is to format your card and unzip again the downloaded file and make sure to put the unlmt.cfg file not once.cfg then let the update to be flashed more time.

    Thanks everyone for trying to help.
    I re-downloaded the file, formatted the SD Card and it still fails at about 40% and resets (Just like tri_zet's experience)

    goodoane: I also tried the unlmt.cfg file directly from the zip package - still same issue.

    in dload folder there is "once.cfg" file, rename it to "unlmt.cfg". it is empty file, i think just rename it is enough.

    check your dload folder in sd card (after failed flashing), open file upg.log
    my log says:
    if you have same log, it could be from UPDATA.APP

    Yeah same exact problem here- can't log into Google Market and Gmail account.

    Needs FW update ASAP - or back it goes to BB!

    Overall nice tablet, GPS works, wireless ok, no problem with Youtube flash, both cameras good, internal speakers good enough, gotta get Market and Gmail working though!

    When I try from the settings menu/"accounts & sync" I get "NO Network! Internet services not avilable- please check your internet connection"- meanwhile I'm able to browse any site I like, and watch Youtube video- but Gmail and Market say "no internet connection"?

    what about the web version of the android market? Can it be accessed as a temporary loophole? Can you install non-market apps?

    Manually navigate to the the Google Market webpage and sign in through web browser (signed in OK- recognizes me) choose app to install, try to install app- dialog box asks "install to another device" and shows my rooted Nook Color. No option to install to S7 from Google Market via the web version of the android market.

    Apps from SD card install OK to S7 Slim.
    Apps from Amazon Market install OK to S7 Slim.

    Gmail login fails- "Can't establish reliable data connection to the server- this could be a temporary problem or your phone may not be provisioned for data services. If this continues, call customer care"

    Google Market fails- "Can't establish reliable data connection to the server- this could be a temporary problem or your phone may not be provisioned for data services. If this continues, call customer care"

    does anyone have a link to the official ROM? I tried rooting my device and the touchscreen is unresponsive now. I think i need a reflash.

    I was able to resolve both the market issue and the gmail issue by performing a factory reset. I have however found out that if install any launcher at all, when I reboot th touchscreen doesnt work. To be fix i had to use adb to uninstall the extra launchers. I have tried with several launchers and all of them give the same results. I called huawei about it and the tech on the phone told me they dont support 3rd party software, but then again, the tech on the phone was a douche too... so i called back and got someone that would listen and is supposedly going to escalate the issue to engineering.
    So with that being said, has anyone been able to install any launcher and have a functional tablet after a reboot?

    i keep running into the same issue with adw and zeam. the default launcher is a pain in the a$$ especially since it is only landscape. responsiveness is also an issue. i hope we get a resolution soon.

    I have just encountered the same problem. I don't know how to do a factory reset with an unresponsive touch screen. What is "adb," where do you get it, and how do you use it?

    You can get adb from here Android SDK | Android Developers
    Here is a link to a brief rundown on what commands you can run: Android Debug Bridge | Android Developers

    Here are the commands that I used:
    adb devices - will show you that your device is connected. USB debugging mode must be turned on.
    adb shell
    cd /data/app
    ls
    rm *Launcher*.apk - When you run ls, you will see a list of files in the folder. You are looking for the word Launcher. When you have the name of the app, should be something like this: com.fede.Launcher-1.apk is you are using Launcher Pro. The name will be different for each launcher you have installed.
    Replace *Launcher*.apk with the actual name of the file.
    Then run the next couple of commands:
    exit
    adb reboot

    This will reboot the tablet and you should be all functional. If you have multiple Launchers installed you will have to remove all of them from the folder listed above.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
