    Anyway, contrary to what is believed in the above and another old thread, the 9762 is not an international edition of the 9742, nor is it a variant of the 9760. It is its own dual-core Amlogic AML8726-MX MID with a TFT display screen. It is equivalent to the Pendo PNDPP4MT9G3, whose user manual is available here :
    www.pendo.com.au/manuals/PNDPP4MT9G3/PNDPP4MT9G3-manual.pdf

    Addendum :
    1. The user manual of the Coby variant and a teardown are available via the FCC here :
    FCC ID S7IMID9762 Mobile Internet Device by Coby Communications Ltd.

    While I'm at it, answers for some other old threads ...
    2. Yes, there is a bug whereby this MID may eventually show a 100% battery state, regardless of its actual charge. I've had two units do this. The battery and its charging circuit are still working normally, it's just the state-of-charge that goes haywire.
    3. Yes, there is a problem using the camera with Skype, it only works for the rear (forward facing) camera. Apparently there are other Android MID's that have this problem with Skype. Seems a stupid bug in Skype refusing to use the lower resolution camera even when you tell it to. None of the suggested fixes work with this MID.

    Good news about the "100% battery level" bug - it has a fix!

    Here are the steps I followed, which should also work for any other Gen4 (assuming these all use the AXP202 charger IC). After several months of constant use, the bug has not returned (note, I also removed "GSam Battery Monitor", but can't say if that's relevant).
