Could you take a moment and outline a step by step on how you accomplished the update?

Before installing any update, it is highly recommended to backup your system. I use my Backup Pro, Backup all Apps and user data. (I cant remember if I needed root access to use Backup Pro)

After performing a backup of my system to my SD Card. I clicked on System Update on the Superpad. I then clicked on Update and a screen did popup with some notes in Chinese, but mostly its informing you of the changes to the SW. The highlight of which is the addition of the storage manager.

I highly recommend connecting your super pad to your network via cable, rather than wifi.

It took quite a while for the device to download the 79 Meg file, but after it finished downloading, it prompted for install (I think), After which it installed and restarted. The first restart did take a bit longer and I had to re-register the device with the registration code.

After Re-rooting the device I the restored my apps and my settings.

If you dont feel comfortable updating, then I would wait till others have updated and can provide feedback on how to restore your device if the install fails.

On a side note the Download took forever and I noticed that it would pause if the device went into "sleep" mode. So I had to quit my first download and change my screen timeout to "Never". Then when downloading again it still would pause every 20 minutes or so, luckily they have a "Pause task" button which will pause or unpause the download.

All in all I think start to finish, including restore and re-rooting, I spent about 2.5 hours performing this update. But if you have issues with using VOIP type apps then it may be wise to install the update.

Any More Questions let me know.
