    Hey Guys...
    3 days ago i got my C93. At the beginning it worked fine, but then the internal storage was broken or something.
    i can't play games or download apps on my internal storage. if i want to download a pic or a vid, it says that i need a sd card.
    in the setting > storage it means that the "internal sd" is there, but when i click on mount, nothing happens.
    it's on the newest official android version. if i try to flash a stock based rom, it skipps the recovery mode.
    i need help please...
    thanks

    ps. sorry for fails. from germany ^^

    Do you have a H6_1f or H6_2f C93? Are you sure you are using the correct ROM for your tablet? Is your sdcard formatted FAT32 (full format, not quick)?

    Well which version do you have? The 1f or 2f?
    If a FULL format of the sdcard to fat32 (usually takes a very long time depending on the size of the sdcard, not a quick format) doesn't work, sometimes just using a different sdcard works (at least with other Zenithink models).....
    If you have a 2f, I'm not sure, they are using different types of files for that version tablet, and I'm not sure how the flashing method is supposed to work for that model....

    First, please tell me which version tablet you have.... 1f or 2f? It's really hard to help when you won't tell me which version tablet you have.....

    What are all the files you have on your sdcard when you are trying to flash it?

    There is no barcode sticker on your tablet that has a model# on it?

    In the settings app on your tablet, in about tablet, what does that say?

    OK, so you have a H6_1f version.... Same as the one I do (but mine is black).... Wonder which ROM you are running.... I haven't tried any of Zenithink's JellyBean 4.1.1 ROMs on my tablet yet... I usually switch between my ICS ROM and Christian Troy's CM10.1 JellyBean 4.2.2....

    You could download the latest ROM from the Zenithink website and reflash the whole tablet via an sdcard (formatted to FAT32) (but you may have a newer ROM on your tablet) - Zenithink the 0222 ROM - http://www.zenithink.com/UploadFile/ZT283_H6_1f_1GB_Android4.1_0222_V1.9.zip (download the file, unzip it and copy the zt-update folder onto your fat32 formatted sdcard, place the sdcard in the tablet, then hold the Back button on top as you power on the tablet, then it should reflash the tablet)....

    Or if you just want to fix the internal storage, you can edit some things in the zt-update folder before you flash your tablet..... Delete all the files from the zt-update folder except for the ZT283.recovery file and the command file.... And you will need to edit the command file with a txt editor like notepad or something..... Change the contents of the file from
    to

    Pretty much make sure all the lines begin with a # except for the --wipe_media line (and the show text line will just let you see it on the screen, so you don't need to comment out that), and then only that missing internal storage will get reformatted so it can work again....

    It should be a genuine Zenithink C93 (H6_1f version) tablet.... Although it is only a 1.2GHz CPU on JellyBean 4.1.1 (ICS - Android 4.0.3 can go up to 1.5GHz), and there is 1GB of RAM, just some of it is reserved for the GPU, so it only says 876RAM, because that's what's available to the Android OS...

    This is part of the build.prop from the 0222 ROM for the C93 H6_1f tablet:
    # begin build properties
    # autogenerated by buildinfo.sh
    ro.build.id=JRO03C
    ro.build.display.id=JRO03C.20121027
    ro.build.version.incremental=20121027
    ro.build.version.sdk=16
    ro.build.version.codename=JellyBean
    ro.build.version.release=4.1.1
    ro.build.date=Sat Oct 27 16:14:13 CST 2012
    ro.build.date.utc=1351325653
    ro.build.type=user
    ro.build.user=android
    ro.build.host=amdroid
    ro.build.tags=test-keys
    ro.product.model=g04ref
    ro.product.brand=MID
    ro.product.name=g04ref
    ro.product.device=g04ref
    ro.product.board=g04ref
    ro.product.cpu.abi=armeabi-v7a
    ro.product.cpu.abi2=armeabi
    ro.product.manufacturer=MID
    ro.product.locale.language=ldpi
    ro.wifi.channels=14
    ro.board.platform=meson6
    # ro.build.product is obsolete; use ro.product.device
    ro.build.product=g04ref
    # Do not try to parse ro.build.description or .fingerprint
    ro.build.description=g04ref-user 4.1.1 JRO03C 20121027 test-keys
    ro.build.fingerprint=MID/g04ref/g04ref:4.1.1/JRO03C/20121027:user/test-keys
    ro.build.characteristics=tablet
    # end build properties

    So it seems to match.... Usually you would need to look at the internal storage to see what the text file says to know what ROM is on it, as the 0222 build.prop still has a date of Oct 27 2012, so you can't tell from the Settings app/About tablet tab's info....

    There is probably a way to reformat the internal storage via a terminal emulator app, but I do not know how to do that... Usually I just use the command file to reformat what I need to....

    You should be good to go once you get an sdcard....

    Good Luck!

    PS - If you do find another solution, please post it!
