So have tried bricking this yet? I've been doing a little preliminary searching for a Honeycomb Rom, but haven't found a step by step how to for these yet.

I've never rooted an Android device, but with the Thunderbolt coming out with Droid 3 and the possibilities for smother interaction with the tabs, I'm going to be very temped. Mind you it didn't take me long to set up my GF's Droid X to copy music from my Linux box, so I know I can connect to my network with the slightest tweaking with 2.2. But still checking out the newest and the features is mighty appealing to me!

I've got it rooted but I'm having a hard time getting a working recovery image on here. I'm about to try the FT2 manual approach and see if that takes. From what I can see I'm running a similar build to the Nexus 1 so that's the image I'm trying to get on here(Gingerbread). I don't know that Honeycomb will ever see the light of day on here but I'll give it a shot.

Default FT3 updated system

Hi everyone, ive got some video's on my website E-webshops

Currently i am reselling them in the Netherlands, and i noticed the latest versions are running on android 2.2 update 1- 2011-03(something) those systems run much faster than the 201100118 versions. All animations and scrolls are even without any lagg now.

I wasn't able to make a video about them. But if someone would have the new firmware could they share it? and mail me instructions to install it on older firmwares. to: info@ewebshops.nl?

Thanks....

I received mine while it was still in process. Probably since ive ordered for over 4k dollars they'll ship it direct. Took not more than five days for me to receive.

But... they now ship them out with a much faster firmware, and angry birds and youtube worked. Im not sure yet flashplayer will work. maybe 10.2 (beta).
Although it has the quality of an iPad 2 now.

Jannoi, if you can get me into recovery, I'll be glad to provide you a dump of the firmware. I haven't been able to get a working custom recovery on this thing yet

Okay for a computer tech I've been slow to look at the possibilities with this thing. It was more of a want just so I could play with it. Anyhow I've read the advantages of Gingerbread over Froyo and now I know I want to bump it up to there at least.

Keep us posted! did you benchmark your battery life before you started? It sounds like there could be a decent bump there from what I've read as well as other things.

I'll probably be asking you more questions once my "FT3" or what ever you want to call this cheap little tablet gets here. The waiting is killing me!

I ordered my FlyTouch3 from ********** few days ago and Status says shipped through DHL.

Newest 10.2" FlyTouch3 Android 2.2 Froyo 512MB/4GB WiFi RJ45 GPS Camera HDMI FlashPlayer10.1 Tablet PC UMPC MID

Including shipping I paid : $195.88

Few things I liked about it is :
- FlashPlayer10.1 Tablet PC
- Infortm X220, 1GMHz ARM11
- Battery : 7000-8000mAh
- camera 2.1M pixel

I will update more after receiving the item.

I am not looking to upgrade from 2.2. I am looking for a basic functions..
- Web surfing
- 3D games
- Emails
- Min 5 hours battery life for surfing
- Good Web Camera

Specs seems promising and most of the tablets have battery rating under 5000mah and this one only has 7000 MAH.

Again, This is info from the website .. I will write comments in next week after playing a little bit.(Hopefully, I will get by next week)

I can't. That img is linked to your HD. You can link images on the web directly but you have to attach files from your HD(scroll down....waaaay down in the new reply window) you'll see a manage attachments button

Exclamation

Hey guys,

As I'm looking to pick up a FT3, I've been reading this thread carefully looking for reputable dealers. It appears that ************ is touted as being the only dealer of genuine FT3's so far, but I can't find anyone confirming this. Several posters at another forum claim that *nobody* is selling FT3's because they aren't available yet.

For those who have ordered and received a genuine FT3 (not merely a retooled FT2), could you link me to your dealer (and provide the date of your order)?
(Linking a photo of your unit's input ports would also be a huge help.)

For those who have received a genuine FT3 from ************, could you confirm here?
(Again, a confirmation photo of your device would be a huge help.)

For those who ordered a FT3 and received a beefed up FT2, could you confirm which dealer pulled the bait and switch (including Ebay sellers)?

I think a lot of people would benefit from a collected database of good/bad dealers. I'll update this post as I receive new information.

Thanks, guys.

UPDATE:
-mixterz confirms a FT3 received from ************.

The problem is, a lot of these dealers are merely selling re-tooled FT2's by adding more RAM. As far as I know, the only physical difference between the FT2's and the FT3's is that the FT3 has one *less* memory card slot.

Does your ************ unit have one or two slots? Uploading a photo of your unit would be a huge bonus.

Welcome to our world Smith77. Flash is pretty nasty on this tablet but at least it "works". I hope that by the next firmware they have that all worked out. If not, oh well it's not a part of my tablet web life anyway(and it still works wonderfully on my phone)

This seems a little too good to be true:

Wholesale 10.2" SuperPAD 2 Android 2.2 flash 10.1 Infortm X220 GPS WIFI Camera 512 RAM FlyTouch 3 tablet pc with

FlyTouch 3, plus a case/keyboard and a screen protector for $202 shipped.

Has anyone received a unit from ********** (specifically Grandbeing Ltd) yet?

Hey, smith, you can confirm that it's a FlyTouch 3 and not a FlyTouch 2 with extra RAM?

That is awesome price.. but battery is 5800 mah. But still it is a very good price as compared to the one I ordered few days ago from ********** for $195 without keyboard and cover. Also the one I ordered has 2.3Mega Pixel camera.

Not so great to me, the price doesn't include shipping and is $204.16, but it does include the keyboard case.

I dont even know if you can check battery specs to see if they are true? I have seen from 3000 up to 8000. Camera 1.3Meg, 2.1Meg, now 2.3Meg. Also one TF slot or two.

I wonder how hard these are to take apart?

My unit is in transit as per DHL tracking. After receiving, I can try to open the battery cover and see actual rating on the battery.

As per the rating, I am expecting 6 hours battery life and I will update with the actual numbers.

How can we see what is the actual camera resolution!!

@ MrSmith317
I haven't tested the latest versions extended, Ill order some more Flytouch 3 models from CG. To me shipping takes about a week (tracked HK post).
Hope i can make a dump of the root, so i can share the latest firmwares.
And i have to because I have several models still running on the firmware of January 2011.

And for the ones who want to know, The matching Keyboard Case is Superb!
I've even attached a Bluetooth Keyboard, and it worked directly! and a cursor on this tablet is awesome.

@ andriod34
You can take a picture with the camera en see its resolution of the picture.
If the camera sensor is the same quality, thats a different story.
But guessing from my models its about 1.3 MP

I ordered mine yesterday and it is supposed to be shipped today. I got mine off of eBay (paid $259 plus $34 shipping, comes with the case and keyboard, stylus, etc and I should have it by Monday morning the guy said). It's my first tablet and I will more than likely root it (I have the Evo and just got it rooted a few weeks ago and love the extra things I can do with it being rooted). I am hoping that everything works on it right out the box. He said everything will but we will see. I will let you guys know once I get it!

Do you know how to dump the firmware on these tablets? If so, I'll dump my 3022011 firmware for you. I just have no clue, I haven't even tried ADB with this thing since I don't have a USB A-to-A cable and need to buy one.

Hello, just bought this one from an ebay seller called davepalot_com and seems genuine, although the pictures are from TF2 he says that the one he sends is TF3 and already with Flash 10.1.

The price wasn't a bargain 161 with free shipping from UK, but i'm looking forward to put my hands on it.

Regards

Artur

I'd like to hear about people that have used the update because I have that version and flash runs pretty crappily if I do say so....and I do.

Aesthetically I def prefer the black gloss back, iphone 4 type edges and bevel. Still waiting on a review for it though: iBex Facepad Android 2.2 Tablet Pc - 10" 4gb GPS Flash 10.1 Apad
Do you mean the FT2 thats just been upgraded to from 2.1 to 2.2?

Mine is running 2.2, but you may be right. I didnt think it would matter as they can always take a FT2 board and put it in a FT3 case, make some changes and now its a FT3. I can say I do not think I can live with the faults of this unit and will return it.

Ok, I have a question. I should be getting my FT3 hopefully tomorrow. The question I have is can I load additional external devices you this unit? For example, I am an insurance agent & we use an epad to collect digital signatures. Would I be able to hook up this epad in the usb port, upload the device drivers & be able to use it? Would make my life a lot easier if I could...lugging around my laptop is getting old! Thanks all!

There's not really device drivers for android that I know of, I can tell you that I plugged in a wireless mouse and it works great. Why don't you buy a 10" netbook for $300?

Guess I wanted a new toy. Have used a laptop for several years and I want something small & light weight. I had a netbook but battery life sucked & just seemed you be more of a pain. Hopong this will work a little better.

Hi,

Does anyone know what the wifi range is like on the Flytouch 3? I don't want to have to be within a few feet of the router....want to use this in other rooms of the house.

Thanks!
Andy
