im trying your link im having same trouble but message no sd card comes up so no download
can not d/l the update as my sd card does not work. remember?
IDK what number it was.To break this down more, if you are doing a firmware update (or the only updating polaroid seems to do with these) you must on your COMPUTER, download, unzip the firmware from southerntelecom,( Aka polaroid). Then use the CORD that came with your tablet, plug it into your tablet and computer. Then get the unzipped files on your computer to send to your (powered off?) tablet. androidpizza, what is the update # on the link you listed? I updated in feb and am on # 14. To all, the polaroid tablet is not intuitive. does not fix it own issues like your computer gets periodic updates. It is a (labor intensive, annoying)different animal.
I gotten to the point of "signature verification failed" Installation aborted. Please help!
Inside the zip is another folder containing 3 files and another zipped folder, put the files and zip on the root of a FORMATTED, clean sd card with nothing on it. Pop it in the tablet with it turned off, hold the power button and minus volume button until it turns on and you see green text that says"Upgrade step 2, do not power off." Make sure you have at least 60% battery and the tablet is plugged in.

Here's my issue: the tablet is telling me there is no internal SD mounted and it won't read the external SD card either. When I tell it to mount the internal card, it says it's "preparing SD card" for a moment then it reverts back to acting as if there is no internal SD card present. And when I insert an empty formatted (fully/slowly formatted in fat32) SD card in the external slot, it says "preparing SD card" but then reads it as having 0.00 memory available when I go into the settings-storage menu.
So will your method work? If I can put the zip file on the SD card using my laptop, but the tablet won't read an external SD card either...
I have already done the down-volume+power-button reset and I have already erased and reformatted the external (micro)SD card.
Switching gears a bit, is there even an actual internal SD card in these tablets? Or is this just a partition on the hard disk? I know when I did the factory reset it asked me if I wanted to erase a partition. I may try that to eliminate the internal SD issue if it's simply a partition. Otherwise, I guess I could unscrew the back panel and see if there is an internal slot in there somewhere.
And, yes, the factory support is crappy. Probably won't buy another Polaroid product given my experience with this tablet.
For the last time, IT IS NOT TO BE DOWNLOADED ON THE TABLET!!!!! PAY ATTENTION!!!!!!!!
IDK what number it was.
And your instructions are incorrect...you use an SD card reader or some other device that can read SD cards to put the firmware on an SD card. Then you pop the SD card with the firmware in the tablet.
You must've done something wrong. Start over with a fresh download in case it got corrupted.
