    I have a 7" uPad with a ZT-180 1g processor, 256 MB of ram. I'm kind of new to the whole scene, I'd just like instructions on how to update this, there's so many different firmwares out there, and I've read that the 180 can do 10.1 flash now, so.

    I would suggest using a newer update.
    7 Inch Zenithink ZT-180 Android2.2 20110425

    TF card = micro SD card. Use only 4GB or smaller for updates. Larger cards will not work for flashing updates and will give the error No zImage_update.

    Updates will remove all your user installed apps and data so if you do not want to download them all again, use a backup app to make a backup folder and then copy backup folder to exteral sdcard before updating. After updating you can copy the backup folder back to it's original location and after reinstalling your backup app you can use this backup app to reinstall all the other app's.

    Here is the update readme file that I have corrected some information and engrish to english.

    Product: Zenithink ZT-180 7inch UPAD
    The Way for upgrade and announcements
    ===========================================
    must-see for upgrade
    The file is too big for uploading, so it will be packed into two different files.
    1: Unrar the two files after you download them
    2: Copy the five files in the folder named "zImage" into the folder named "zt-update"
    3: Copy the folder named "zt-update" to TF card and then update for your tablet
    ===========================================
    The way for upgrade by TF card is followed as below:
    1: Copy folder "zt-update" to TF card and insert TF card in slot
    2: Press ESC key (right side of the screen) at the same time as you turn on the tablet
    3: Follow the instructions appearing on the screen, the device will do the upgrade and restart by itself.
    Special emphasis
    Please keep charger connected to tablet when you upgrade by TF card to avoid any risk
    =============================================

    Additional notes for 20110425
    This update contains Flash Player 10.1 and Angry Birds APK'S. OI File Manager location /mmt/sdcard/demo
    After installing Flash Player 10.1 and opening the Browser, press menu, then choose Ipad (HTML5) or Flash, when you switch it, you need to click “refresh ” for it to take effect.
    This update gives you a choice of standard Launcher or VTL Launcher.

    After installing I was able to install the flash 10.1 version that is in my previous post.
    It does not work very well as it is quite pixilated sometimes but is better than nothing.
    When installed it shows as being version 10.1.106.15 though it seems to be a different APK file than one with the same number that originally came from the Android market.

    The only other one I was able to install was 10.1.61.68. If you tried the one above and it would not install then I guess you will have to try other ones and see if any work.
    Other versions of Flash.

    Hopefully future Zenithink updates will fix this problem.

    What app to backup the sistem are you using? I'm using one that I get from the market but I really only keep the apps that I have install but not any data from tablet (email configuration, wifi WEP key or nothing).

    Its possible to backup all this details or always I will have to re-enter the information after upgrade?
