Hi New here an new to android tablets,

I won a Furious 7" tablet. seems to be a generic Chinese clone using an IMAPX200 processor.

From new the volume control in the software (confirmed by disassembling and eliminating the mechanical buttons) permanently drives to full volume this leaves a media volume pop-up on screen all the time and cause the unit to beep repeatedly. Also the unit is registered on my google account as being on China telecom which makes Market pretty useless.

I don't have the option of returning the device, so would like to try re-installing the operating system.

So far I have managed to root the unit and have terminal emulator working.

This allowed me to get the HWVER (0.5.0.6) but I can't find any matching updates or software versions

From device information:-

Model Number :- m799ca V2.2
Android Version :- 2.3.3
Baseband version :- unknown
Kernel Version :- 2.6.35.7-InfoTM neville@neville-desktop #7
Build Number :- m799ca-eng 2.3.3 GRI40 eng.petter.20111201.143607 test-keys

Hwver 0.5.0.6

I would like a uk compatible operating system either 2.3 or 2.2 but can't seem to find one.

This is the device I have :- Furious 7" 1GHz CPU Android 2.3 Tablet MID ePad Flash 10.1 1080P HDMI 4GB Android Market WiFi Facebook Skype: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,

Pete.

Pete -

Welcome to the forum, for a newbie you already have done a pretty deep dive it looks like. I am going to refer you to the InfoTmic sub-forum here: Infotmic Based, which would be the correct one for your particular device.

Glad to have you here!

Cheers,
Peter

Pete,

thanks for the reply,

I did a load of research before I posted as I know how frustrating it can be when noobs ask the same question over and over.

Pete.
