    As I have scoured the internet for information, I have discovered that numerous individuals have asked this question throughout other forums, some in their own threads, but they all seem to die away with insufficient answers. Hopefully, some of the skilled members here will be able to give complete answers; rather than referrals to other pages that aren't specific to this device. Oddly enough, this device does have several quirks that others do not. So here is the scenario with all needed info.

    Device: SYTABEX7-2

    Android Version
    DG2.20
    Hardware ID
    11.2.3.1
    Firmware
    DG2.2.1-7a3.b5


    Several users have been stuck at the INFOTMIC screen. Using the three finger salute, we are able to get to the "No recovery image is found, try recover from SD." This will happen for all of us, as this express model doesn't have a recovery image.

    Where to go from here is the big question. After much research, it is known that OTG is also not possible with this device. I assume this means the only option is to burn the .ius to the micro SD card. Using IUW I select "removable media 1", click burn, it takes only seconds, and the burn is complete. However, the card still shows up as entirely empty when I view its properties, and putting it into the device does absolutely nothing. It still just loads up to the INFOTMIC screen forever.

    Any advice? Is the burn not burning properly? Should the card show some space being taken up after the burn? Any help appreciated. There are at least 9 of us waiting on this exact problem to be solved. Thanks.

    Well, to reply to myself. Multi-card readers that register each input will not work with IUW. Windows XP also didn't work for me. A standard sd-usb device worked great with mobile Windows 7 - which is free with DLC super multiboot. Burned it, fired right up. For $5, I guess this thing is worth it. Kind of.

    Skittles81, what is DLC super multiboot? I'm new to Android devices - my son has a SYTABEX7-2 (hardware 11.2.3.1) and it's stuck at the "infoTMIC" screen. How exactly did you fix yours?

    Well, I managed to get the SYTABEX7-2 running with http://222.73.93.45/update/11.2.3.1/7901UC_11.2.3.1.2.0_beta3.ius (that's the file I found in a post by cfrockit on the xda-developers forum), but the device thinks it's a SYNET7LP. At least it's running, but does anyone know what the ius file specifically for the SYTABEX7-2 would be?

    Thank you for this post. I too have the same problem. I am going to attempt to use your link to the .ius file and try that. i am very new at this and feel as though i am walking around inside a computer blindfolded and one hand tied behind my back.
