    I have tried several of tipstirs roms, they all get stuck at the same spot. "Upgrading file-system" I found a thread on slatedroid that said let the battery run totally out, but that didn't work either.

    This is obviously a chinese hunk-a-sh...errrrr clone. I thought it was a flytouch generic. The version said WMT2.1.1 when I checked, so I thought the ROMs would work here. Here is a link form the ebay auction I bought it from. Any advice would be helpful. It seems like its bricked.

    sorry for the link above. This thing looks just like the pics in the forum, sliver back, blue led when on, red when charging. The ebay add said it was 450 mhz. I tried using the firmware for the VIA 8505, it gets stuck at upgrading file-system. Occassionally the ROM gets past thise but says it could not erase file system. fail! exit! maybe kernel does not support NAND Flash.

    again, any help is greatly appreciated. At this point getting it back to out of the box state would be more than gracious.

    I have the same EXACT tablet, and I am having the same exact issue you're stating.

    I tried all of tipsters roms, and it's failing when it tries to upgrade the filesystem.

    Says it cannot find udisk on /dev/sda and then fails and hangs...

    Theres gotta be a fix for this.

    No matter what I try to do, I still fail when it tries to upgrade the filesystem.

    I even downloaded the factory rom from chinavasion.com and still have the same result.

    ok people, i have another of the same tablet. i figured, if we can copy the whole system of this tablet
    and somehow install it to the bricked (i hope not !!!) tablet, it SHOULD work right? But i don't know
    how to do it or if it is even possible. S.O.T (Save Our TAblet!!!)

    There must be something new about our tablets hardware or software that's making it fail when it tries to upgrade the filesystem.

    I even went into the script folder and tried to mess around with the update.sh file, but still to no avail. If I got past the failed upgrading filesystem not find udisk on (/dev/sda) then it would fail at the Kernel upgrade.

    So I think we just need to be a collective body and convince the rooters here to help us out, because obviously there is demand.

    One of the guys told me our tablet has different mount points... I just don't understand how /dev/sda isn't the primary storage device on the tablet...

    PLEASE HELP!
