Confused Generic Tablet running O.W.L. ??

Hey guys,

I've recently purchased a generic, Chinese manufactured tablet that I could use some help with. I don't know much about the operating systems that these devices use, but this one seems to have something called OWL, on it. Under device info, there is tab for OWL upgrade.

Tried researching this online, and only found a developer site that explains OWL to be a small group of people trying to support the Wildfire S (OWL standing for Operation Wildfire Life). So I'm not sure if this tablet was somehow set up with a version of the mod used in that project, but I am thoroughly confused right now.

I've recently downloaded a Hardware Info app from the play store and I'm in the process of gathering some screenshots to post in with this.

There are just some basic PC/Phone/Tablet functions that don't seem to be here, and I've never seen any other device that functions quite like this one does.

Does anyone know more about OWL? Any information would be useful. I'm pretty sure the device is already rooted (but I'm a complete noob) and I hope to be able to somehow upgrade it to a different setup.

Thanks all for your time !!

EDIT: Since I'm new, I'm not sure if I can post any images to the threads... Just got a message when I posted

Welcome to Android Forums. I moved this thread to the forum for tablets that don't have a dedicated forum.

I'm not sure how long I have to be a member in order to post pictures or web links but I am going to give it a shot. Still trying to find out more about this strange device....

I recently bought a new 9" tablet from China, no-name brand, sold as "KJ902". What model name is your tablet?
Seeing your screenshots, I assume it also has a ATM7029 processor.

I wasn't succesful yet on gaining some information about the OWL Upgrade. Dunno if it has something to do with the Wildfire rom on xda-devs. Maybe, as you say, the one installed on the tablets is a somewhat modified version of this Rom.

Did you manage to get the upgrade beyond the point where it says "Server busy.."?? Would be interesting to know which server the app tries to connect. Is there any way to find this out?

It would be nice if you keep us updated on what you find out about this tablet..

I have a similar problem with my tablet bought on ebay from China.
8" inch HD Google Android 4.2.2 HDMI Wi-Fi Quad Core 1G RAM Windfire ONDA Tablet PC 16GB
Same issue with the Owl Upgrade, server is always busy and also very poor wifi (unless I'm standing within a few feet of the router).

Think most the problems in this thread are either faulty or are down to poor design and quality.
