    Found the fix, thanks

    Different screen size/Screen offset if you have a 1024x576 screen
    As a general rule Do not flash another bootloader onto your pad unless stated otherwise. It is not needed for regular updates.
    If you have a x600 screen it should work out of the box with my roms
    If you have a x576 screen you will see an "offset" for your screen, simply launch the GScript application, scroll at the bottom and click on the 1024x576 fix. then reboot.
    You have to do that only once
    If ever it goes wrong, well that means that you have most likely flashed another bootloader before.
    Just put the bootloader for your screen and reflash the rom in that case.

    I just received my new Superpad III today. System info says it is DISC010 with firmware date 20110530. I am wondering if I should install the Tim4e ROM or wait since I noticed th 4e was based on firmware date of 20110503. I have the 16gb version. Also having problems with Wifi dropping out. Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Tim4e is great. I'd recommend flashing it. :)

    Thanks Smorgan19.....that's what I was thinking....from everything I've read on the forum, Tim's update would probably be more stable than the manf's....

    Tim 4e won't be updated till around August (or so) as Tim has stated he has too much paid work to deal with until that time.

    Hello folks, I am an extreme novice here! I received my SuperPad III yesterday (I don't have any kind of smart phone or anything else like this). I was suppose to receive the Flytouch 3, SuperPad 2, and have contacted the seller (in China) ~ not holding my breath. In the meantime, there are a few issues that I need to resolve to make my pad more user friendly:

    1. cannot reset my GPS location ~ weather stays in China (I'm in Texas)
    2. my GPS antena will not screw into connector at top of unit
    3. WIFI only works well if I am sitting right next to my router
    4. how do I find what battery I have

    I'm sure I'll find other things, but these are the most obvious. I have read about flashing the unit with Tim's roms, but I'm not sure exactly how to do that ~ I do not have an external SD card yet.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    This has been addressed exhaustively here and on many other sites, please use the forum search facility...
    It doesn't screw, it's a push fit.

    See my response to point 1.

    There are various apps that purport to give you this information and you could do calculations based on charge current etc. but the only sure way is to open up your tablet and take a peek...

    I'd say so, can't see why not. The hardware is exactly the same except for the internal storage. Which i'd say they've just upgrade the internal MicroSD to a 32gb card.

    Just one note of caution....on Tims firmware page it says..

    - 16GB tablet compatibility
  12. smorgan19

    smorgan19 Well-Known Member

    This is because originally TIM's firmware originally wasn't working with 16gb models but he's patched it now to work. This is why it states it's compatible with 16gb models. So it should also work with the 32gb models.

    :)

    Yes.. I understand that, but the new firmware re-partitions the card and I don't know how it decides to partition the remaining space after making the 'system' partitions.. it might just partition 'the remainder' or Tim might have specified a size...do you know?

    It might be that the poster will just loose half his card.. that was the point of caution I was trying to make, not that it wouldn't work

    Hi smorgan,

    Sorry, but every time I see your forum name I am reminded of an old rugby song which is simply not suitable for posting here...

    Ah. Pretty sure it's using percentages now but haven't decompressed the latest TIM rom to see. :)

    Hi,

    The original firmware doesn't support 3G Dongles but it can be upgraded to add the support. I used s0I's firmware which has superb 3G support. Other people use Tim's 4x firmware which includes the same drivers.

    The process is simple and reliable and only takes a few minutes to perform.

    I believe there are a number of 'tether' apps on the Market and if run on an Android phone its internet connection can then be shared [with your tablet / PC / Cray XMP] over WiFi.

    I've manage to solve the apps missing under My Apps in Market. You just have to search for an apps you have install then reinstall it then all the apps will appear back in My Apps in Market. Hope this help if anyone encounter this problem.

    I'm not sure you're having the same issue that i've encounter but yeah uninstall an apps from market place and reinstall back then you will be able to see all others apps that you've install in the first place.

    Superpad 3 is not recommended at this time because it still needs to be developed. I still recommend Flytouch 3 Superpad 2 as of now. Check out Fapobee.com for reviews if you like or http://stores.ebay.com/FapoElectronics?_rdc=1
