General What is the Superpad III?

    Hi,

    I recently got a Superpad III as a gift. I've never heard of the Superpad III and have tried googling it to find more information. I don't find anything directly relating to the Superpad III but find links to the Superpad 2 Flytouch 3. My question is, who makes the Superpad III and what device is it exactly? Namely, is it a Flytouch device? I'm going to give the device info that I see on my "About Device" section in the device settings:

    Model Number:
    disco

    Android Version:
    Android2.2-20110316

    Baseband Version:
    unknown

    Kernel Version:
    2.6.32.9
    zjd@dtlinuxserver #34

    Build Number:
    FRF85B

    Based on the given info, can anyone identify what is the actual name of the device. My father got this device from a website called dhgate. Does anyone know of dhgate and can tell me about the products they sell? It seems like a Chinese wholesale store.

    As for the device, works fine for the most part but my biggest complaint is that many of the top apps I can't download via the app market. Namely, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, and others say that they aren't compatible with the device. Is there anyway to get Youtube to work on the Superpad III?

    Anyway, I've spoken a lot. Any info would be greatly appreciated though!

    what you have my friend is a clone of a superpad 2 from China, i have the same and many people also have the same. What i should do is redirect you to a link where you can download a custom rom that enable alot more opportunity to make the tablet better.

    all is revealed here. the latest rom is 4c

    Hybrid ROM (rooted))

    Hmm I feel cheated, is it inferior from the original product or does it have the same specs?

    Oh well. The battery seems to last long enough. But I've been trying to get Youtube to work but to no avail. I did some tricks from the apad.tv forum (the Hybrid ROM link, the second post and first reply on this thread).
    Namely, I emptied the cache for the Google Framework Services and force closed that program. Then I rebooted the tablet and after a minute or two I check the App Market and there was Youtube and several other apps. I downloaded youtube but youtube always crashes (force closes) after running for five seconds. I can't seem to get it to work. I followed another forum and downloaded an app called VideoBox which has both Youtube and Vimeo embedded, but the number of Youtube videos is very limited. I can't find my favorite videos using the search function of that thing.

    I don't know if this is an issue with Flash but it appears my Superpad III has Flash Player 10.1 installed in the system (cannot be uninstalled). I've been trying to update to Flash Player 10.3 but I can't find it in the app market and I tried using AppBrain App Market to get the update but cannot since AppBrain doesn't find it in the regular market.

    Another thing is that running Dolphin HD Browser, I go to Youtube and try to run some videos but a message says the video cannot be played. This happens for all videos I've tried. Whats going on?

    Seems like Youtube is resisting every one of my attempts to run it on the Superpad III tablet. I don't feel like installing the rooted Hybrid ROM since I'm afraid it might mess up some of my other apps and settings (Someone posted that Angry Birds runs funny after installing the ROM).

    Any pointers to get Youtube to run, without installing the ROM, would be most appreciated. Anyway, I hope to get some replies soon and thanks in advance for the help.

    besides for the battery i think its exact the same (after installing a custom rom) - i don't notice anything wrong with the device anymore and i'm 100% satisfied with my clone.

    My battery lasts 3-4 houres - compared to 6-7 of the real flytouch
    I did a battery calibrate (tool is on the market) - and i bought a better charger.
    Since then the battery's life is great !
