Hi everyone. I have made a video tutorial on upgrading/flashing the Venus firmware. Hopefully this will help those having trouble with upgrading their firmware and they can understand the whole process much easier. I have also written up a guide on another forum which I can't be bothered pasting and formatting it here right now, so I'll link it further down this thread. Before you startDISCLAIMER: This guide is provided for information purposes. I am not responsible if anything goes wrong in the upgrade process, nor can I guarantee it will work for everyone. Make sure you follow each step correctly and you will be fine. Before you follow this guide, it is important to know that YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL BE WIPED during the upgrade process. Please MAKE A BACKUP before attempting this procedure. I have tried this on Windows 8 (32-bit) and it has worked. It should work on Windows 7. I am not sure about Windows XP. Make a backup of all your files inside your tablet. The flash/upgrade process will format your tablet, deleting everything. Make sure your tablet is charged up fully (above 90%). You do not want your tablet shutting off during the flash/upgrade because it ran out of battery.
