First I would contact your seller and tell him the pad is hanging on boot and that you have been told the way to fix it is flash the firmware. Then just download the file they link you to and hang on to it. It's funny but a lot of sellers are actually linking users back to Tim's roms. Some will just tell you where to look for a custom rom.

If they do not link you here is a link to a post with a few stock roms in it.

Thank you Rabid1, I went ahead and installed Tim's 5a anyway. So far, I'm loving it, just need to re-read through this forum again on how to fix the camera and better keyboard8.

There is a version of the original Angry Birds that is 12,528KB. Search for AngryBirds.apk and you may find it. On my FT3 it installs fine and does not have the graphics glitch other versions have. I see that the Market has only Rio and Seasons on it.

Default Is it worth installing 6a ??

Hello I have a flytouch clone with android 2.2 kernel version2.6.32.9 release FRF85B.

Is it a backward step installing Tims 6a bearing in mind that it is based on 20110803 and mine has a version date of 2011-09-13.

What does it say at settings/About Device?

From Model Number onwards, etc etc

Where did you buy it from, how long have you had it?

Ah - 2 TF Card slots - tim or funnycomb roms are not compatible with these models.

Go back to supplier and see if:

There is a stock rom
There is possibly custom rom

If not - you are stuck with what you have, if you are happy then all is good

Does it strike you as being a bad clone?

Have you seen this model before and do you have any views on it?

If I had done my homework and research before purchasing a flytouch, I would not have bought this model.

I would always buy a model that is compatible with tim rom or other such roms.

There is no bad clones, just different clones, all flytouch are clones of each other, there is no genuine model.

I have no view on the model you bought as I have never had it in my hands, but if it does what you want it to do and you have good customer support, then you may be happy with what you have, it is only when it goes wrong and you have to get it fixed will you know that what you have bought is worth the money.

Thanks... Yes I am happy as I was after an open ended ebook reader.I have seen the prices of kindles and the like and think that they are expensive for what you get and compared to a tablet.

If I had done my homework ... the story of my life really! I did not quite imagine that there was such a large community.

So your apps choice from google market apps is limited, imo, the best thing you can do is either have an android phone so you can get the apps you want - then copy from the phone to the tablet, or google search for droidappz and see if their app and the way they do things suits your needs (some may not agree with their methods, but for us as consumers it works on our tablets).

Model Sawee10
Android Version V2.2-20110816
Kernel version 2.6.32.9

Are there any HW updates out there than can resolve these issues or do you think that it's best to return the item? Please reply when able. Thanks.
i have the same tablet,i installed tims 6a and every thing works great!

Default Ibex 10" ibex flytouch 3 superpad 2 android 2.2 32gb tablet

Hello,

Just received above tablet - looking at Tims Version 6 flash can this be used on this model without messing up internal card as I see there was a separate flash update for 16 gig users?

First time ever had anything android and know nothing (new user) - would welcome any advice. Do I need to backup standard system before flashing

thanks

We need the model number to be able to tell you 100% , but if it is an ibex you should have no issues.

Do it as soon as you can, then customise your apps as you need. You won't like or need the stock rom, so no point in learning it, putting all your apps on then upgrading, best to flash beforehand and then learn it.

Read the tips page first tho SuperPad2 Flytouch3 Tim Rom Tips

No need to backup if it is new, and there are stock roms out there if you need to revert to how you first got it.

But just confirm that it is indeed a FT3 and not a facepad from Ibex please.

Please check settings/about device and let us know what you got, I hope it says Disco10 and not P041. Thanks.

Yes, you can install tim6a. Doing a factory reset will not restore software, it only wipes the personal data items off the tablet - it does not restore anything.

You can install a factory rom to put it back to how it was, but imo you would be better installing tim6a and starting over with a better faster rom, then adding the youtube app and angry birds app as necessary.

Thanks to all for advice - Managed to update to Tim's 6A and slowly learning my way round my tablet. On some of the sites it will not allow me to download as it says I do not have an android phone. (That's true I do not!)

How do I register with these sites to allow me to download free apps for my tablet. After my flashing the rom it sees Dolphin HD browser but says not available. Cannot download for market as no phone account registered.

Am I doing something wrong here? Doh!!!!

Thanks

How do I register with these sites to allow me to download free apps for my tablet. After my flashing the rom it sees Dolphin HD browser but says not available. Cannot download for market as no phone account registered.

Am I doing something wrong here? Doh!!!!

Thanks
Nope, it is how it is, you have to find *cough* alternate ways to get the apps onto your tablet.

Google the app name and stick apk in the search and you should find what you need most of the time (the markets are getting to be more & more protected in who & what they distribute to).

There is quandary here, and there is no perfect solution, but the tablet makers do not pay google for the licence to run google app market, so in effect you are already running a "warez" version of something. Google will therefore restrict what it can to those that do not pay. So one of the best places to get apps from is doing something similar in return - so google droidappz and see if what they offer suits you more, their app is a paid for app for $5 per month, but it is 100 times better than nothing.

Sorry but 'Dream on'......it wont get enough signal. You must remember that these are CHEAP.. they don't use the latest sensitive gps chipsets or the latest wifi modules...

They do work with the external active antennas... mainly due to the fact that the antenna is mounted away from the noise of the tablet and quite possibly in the open on the roof of your car.....

Clearing the A-GPS data can be done if you like... it only needs doing once though, and even then only if you do not have an internet connection. As soon as you do have an internet connection it *should* update your A-GPS info to help the GPS chipset get a fix....but it is not essential to have the A-GPS data correct for your location... the gps chipset *should* get your location eventually. If it doesn't you most probably have a problem with the antenna wiring inside the tablet or a faulty antenna/chipset.

Hi everyone!
Sorry for my english... but i have a question. I will buy about 10 Flyotouch3 for a work-project but i MUST connect a Bluetooth-dongle.

I tried to connect the dongle to the device, but none of them has been recognized by the system. Is there a way to be able to have Bluetooth on your tablet?

My F3 has version 2.2.20110503, kernel 2.6.32.9 and build FRF85B.

Bluetooth does not work on a Flytouch3, at least not yet. There is little or no work being done to get it to work because there are later tablets out there that are attracting all the development work.

I suggest you buy a different tablet if you need bluetooth.

Ok please let me start of by stating I am very new to the Tablet scene and these Forums so please don't bite my head off :-(. With that said I have been searching the Forums all night about customizing a FLYtouch3/SuperPad3 etc... But nothing tells me if it's worth upgrading. I did find one link that had the different reason to use Tim's latest ROM; however I don't seem to have the same issues others complain about. I am running a (I believe) SuperPad3 with
Model# DISCO10
And: 2.2-20110803
kern:2.6.32.9
Build:FRF85B
I have rooted the device with Z4root and have launcher pro installed to allow USB debugging. Is there any firmware newer than what I have that my device will support, if so is it worth the upgrade for me? I have seen a lot of FunnyComb post and I don't want that as I've heard nothing but bad reviews and information relating to those ROMs. I am scared to brick my device and I will be purchasing a new SD card as soon as I figure out which is the best. (I bought this device to learn on) Thanks in advance!!

First the current Funnycomb won't work for you.
Second, whoever is telling you bad things about the ROM probably doesn't know their a** from a Tulip or has some ax to grind. There is nothing wrong with that rom.

Tim's 6a will work with your pad as it has the different WiFi setup yours needs.

If you are happy with a rooted stock ROM stick with it. There is no law that says you have to go with a ROM that will make your pad perform better and have less problems.

The process of re-flashing firmware involves totally erasing everything from the system partition...all your installed apps and your gmail settings will have been erased. You will have to re-enter the gmail account settings. When you have done that, if it errors then you will have to erase the google services framework data. Go to menu/settings/manage applications/all/google services framework/clear data. Then reboot the tablet and then try to log onto your gmail account again. If it still errors try logging on again, it sometimes takes several attempts but it should eventually log on.

I'm not sure if you got your answer yet or not, but I had the same problem. The way I fixed is was to "FORMAT" my sd card not just delete all the files, that won't work. You must format the card then install the firmware. I used SDFormatter.

Sorry if this is to late, I just joined the forum

I'm trying to update my current firmware to this one but when i put the tf card in the tablet with the two files it just boots normally, it doesn't flash like it says. I formatted the card 3 or 4 times and still the same thing, is there any other way to do this besides the automatic?

What is your tablets model number, and which firmware are you trying to re-flash?
