    Here is the details + pics of a unit I have recently purchased

    Operating System: Google Android OS 1.6

    Memory: 256MB DDR2 800Mhz

    CPU: VIA MW8505 600MHz

    Build: 1.8.2

    Here are a few pictures:

    Android Build:

    Home Screen:
    $IMAG0219.jpg
    Sound + Menu Buttons:

    $IMAG0216.jpg

    Market App:

    $IMAG0222.jpg

    The unit performs relatively well, the Market works well, although it's not the "real" Android Market.

    I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to those, is it possible to install the real Android Market app or is it possible to add apps without using the App provided? Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance.

    Cheers,

    G*

    Is the unit a Gome FlyTouch? The back is plain silver with no writing or anything?

    Hi chaps. No, this is not the 'real' Gome Flytouch. This is exactly the same unit I have, which I purchased from Euogo.com. It is a Flytouch 'clone', and even uses the same ROM operating system image. Note that the 'speaker grilles' are slightly different to a real Gome. The model number of mine is 'TPGA-718'. Also, the VIA processor is a 350 Mhz, not a 600. It has probably been sold to you with a higher spec processor than it has. It has indeed got 256Mb of RAM, and 2GB of solid state RAM though, which is a bonus.

    The EPAD 256M 1.9_88 0.3k works very very well on this device, here:

    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...-1-9_88-rooted-v0-3-working-market-flash.html

    Makes it much more responsive, the official Market works properly now, and all hard buttons still work. Give it a go!

    So the procedure to update the firmware is clear:

    I need to download the new firmware, uncompress it and pop the script folder at the root of a blank SD card correct?

    I can kiss the current firmware bye bye right?

    I have downloaded all the power tools, what's the procedure to install those pop them on the SD card and install them from there correct?

    Many thanks in advance for all the help.

    Cheers,

    Yes - all the decompressed files need to exist in a folder called 'script'. Turn on the device, and it will auto-flash itself. Watch for any errors (there shouldn't be any). Take out SD card. Reboot. Whole process take < 5 mins. And yes, your old ROM/OS will be wiped (including installed apps, email, google accounts etc. Its effectively doing a factory reset.

    Make sure you install CacheMate then run it! Check off Power Clean. Everything is in the Powertools. Make sure you remove the script folder once the device is Rooted.

    Cool thanks, one quick Q, what does Caffeine do? Do it calculate the speed of the processor?

    Thanks,

    Yes benchmark tool. The score on the bottom is what counts. The higher the better!

    Mine is the same. Any OS that I have tried to put on it already has not been able to erase the NAND Flash partition. If the partition can be erased. I should be able to put something on it. I just do not know my model. By as far as what you have and I have it is closely resemblance to a Gome Flytouch. So if I had to tell what I had. Then I would have to call it what it mostly looks like. Otherwise I need to call it a generic tablet that is nothing by name. Which in case if you are trying to find stuff for it then it becomes hard and almost impossible if you do not know what it mostly resembles or is.
