    Hi there, you seem like a pretty knowledgeable person. Is it possible to put Android 4 on an earlier version of a Pendo Pad with Android 2 - which is crap and doesn't run flash or Skype?

    the old pendo pad has a rockchip 2818 processor
    and the new pendo pad ics has the Allwinner Cortex A8 processor

    I've heard that trying to upgrade the Old Pendo firmware any thing above what it had intended is useless to try. (will get heaps of hardware incompatibility problems)

    Caution: to those never used the recovery options carefull
    you could wipe everything on your device. :hmmmm:
    (I have warned you)

    recovery mode
    recovery mode = vol down (hold) + back (hold) + power on

    you'll get a green ! android on screen

    "back button " will turn on or off the recovery options
    "volume up" and "volume down" are the movement buttons
    and "power button" is the OK
    the ../ line within the options is to go back

    Safe Mode
    Safe Mode = vol down (hold) + power on (Hold)

    Hi bubbasd,

    I have the same PendoPad 4 and managed to lose the stock recovery files while trying to get Google Apps working. I did get it working in the end, but I managed to screw up the back camera.

    I am wondering if you would be able to supply me with a copy of a ClockworkMod backup or something similar.

    I've downloaded the update.img firmware from the PendoPad website but am unable to figure out how to use this with CWM or ADB.

    Here are links to Stock - Pendopad 4.0 ICS Model PP4MT-7 NAND dumps using dd.


    Unzip and copy nand dd's to sdcard.
    CWM with ADB in Recovery mode will give you root access, you can then do via adb shell (usb):

    mount /sdcard
    dd if=/sdcard/nanda.dd of=/dev/block/nanda
    dd if=/sdcard/nandc.dd of=/dev/block/nandc
    dd if=/sdcard/nandd.dd of=/dev/block/nandd
    dd if=/sdcard/nandg.dd of=/dev/block/nandg
    umount /sdcard
