    If you have the Apad iRobot, you should not have any problems with Android market.

    Appbrain uses the Android Market to download apps, so you wont be able to use it if your Android Market is malfunctioning.

    You can learn to identify your device here: Identifying the Rockchip Apad iRobot ยป HiApad

    Otherwise take some pictures of it and we'll tell you exactly what you got.

    A good alternative market app is SlideMe: http://slideme.org/

    Well the normal troubleshooting steps are

    1) verify that other Android devices work on the Android market (if you have any)
    2) log in and out of Gtalk
    3) clear Google accounts data (or factory reset)
    4) last resort, flash a custom firmware

    Hi Xaueious - Please advice :)

    I wanted to flash my apad (batch2-5v charger, red led light,metallic casing) and I found the instructions from
    Apad-scene: How to update aPad/Moonse/iRobot Firmware (it is good to follow ? )
    and the firmware Apad_iRobot_Update_0530-EN.zip (it is the best and the latest ? )

    Found some firmwares in aPad Xaueious Firmware
    which make me confused.
    You have HiPad, Darexius, HybrisKangXau ? I just want a stable firmware as mine is crashing very frequently.
    Which is the most stable firmware available ?
    Thanks in advance

    Hanks
