How do I find tablet hardware configuration?


Mar 18, 2011
My Chinese 7" tablet froze during boot up two weeks after purchase. I would like to attempt to install the compatible Android OS but am unable to tell what the true specs of the gadget are since it can't boot.

Is there a command line boot application that can be be run to determine what the hardware setup is and print to the screen, such as happens when installing Linux on a PC (the hardware profile is displayed before proceeding)?

Clockwork Recovery mentioned in the FAQ post seems dependent on the gadget being fully functional/bootable.

For what it's worth, the seller claimed these were the specs on what I ordered and sent a note with the package (MID on the box) saying it was upgraded to Android 2.2:
