Unzip the Uberoid download to an empty folder on your PC first, then copy the files onto the SD card. (for some reason extraction directly to the SD card failed on me)

The wmt_scriptcmd file and FirmwareInstall folder should be on the root of the card.

With the android tablet turned off, insert the SD card, and turn it back on.

During startup the android tablet will read the SD card and install the firmware. It took about 4 minutes for the process to complete before the device rebooted into the new OS. Watch the screen because the SD card must be ejected when the firmware installation completes or the upgrade will run again after the device restarts.

After installation I went into the applications list and found an app for fixing the market. I was then able to go into the regular Android Market after setting up my WiFi connection. I found it necessary to search for GMail in the market to update the version contained in the ROM image. After doing that I was able to access GMail on the tablet.

Everything else I did was related to setting up the environment the way I like such as using ADW Launcher as my default launcher. Moving icons around etc.

* Note that there is a large clock widget on the home screen that will prevent you from putting icons on the desktop, I removed that.

Overall this improved the device 1000%. I was really disappointed in the tablet and now I am extremely happy with it.

Clarification: Others have been reporting that they have tried the information I have posted, some with success and others without success. Make sure your loading the right ROM for your device. The Tech Know web site has many ROMs to try. My device has a blue LED, WiFi Only and is 7 inches. If your device does not fit that description, you can still follow my upgrade instructions but you need a different ROM.

I have pretty much done all this stuff & I still can't get it to work. I have the GREEN LED & My Tablet is 3G compatible.
I think I found the right ROM but when I put the SD card in, nothing happens. It doesn't upload anything or delete anything.
When I used the SD card Formatter, I wasn't able to Flash Erase the SD card. Could that be the problem? And if so, how do I fix it?

In addition, right now, I can't download anything onto my tablet. It says Facebook is downloaded, but it isn't, I can't download the Kindle or any other apps. Will I be able to do that after getting the new ROM??

Thanks!!

Im having the same problem as mikah.george although mine has the BLUE/RED LED and is 3G compatible, can someone please advise me to what im doing wrong??

Im currently in China and have only been able to download the ROM from Post 17, although I have confirmed this is the correct one via the HcH'z TechKnow [www.HcH.net.tc] - View forum - Tablets site.

Ive inserted the SD card, turned the Tablet on and it loads up as normal, No istallation, then when i have the Desktop, it then begins to "Prepare SD Card" and the SD card has an additional 3 folders: "DCIM", "LOST.DIR" & "~wmtthumb".

Also if i download anything, i seems to store it onto the SD Card, yet when you turn the device off and back on again, everything ive downloaded has gone.

Im new to this but getting very frustrated with what i see as a piece of junk!
Any help would be much appreciated!

I have the Blue LED, 3G one too. I was not able to use the Blue LED one from that TechKnow site. Instead me and another user here used this link: Uberoid_WM8650_2.2_v1.2.2_NL_20110414_8-HcH.7z

I did everything suggested in his post and it worked. My tablet was rooted and now runs a better Android UI. Try that link and tell us what happens.

By Blue/Red, I have the same kind. If you turn the tablet slightly on its side it turns a red color sometimes right?

Yeah, I'm sorry. None of us here had the Green LED tablet. I used the link above for my Blue LED 3G tablet and it worked. The posts from the TechKnow website probably work for some tablets but not all.

I would recommend heading there, registering, and explaining your situation. The moderator there seems to be pretty knowledgeable with the tablet as he hacked it himself. Or you could wait for someone with a Green LED to come here but that might be a while.

From the sound of it, you already got it working though. Let us know how it is tomorrow or if you have any problems beforehand so we can gather more information about these tablets for future buyers/users.

So...The download worked for me & everything started to work, BUT when my tablet loaded, the screen was doubled! Irritating!! My screen is 7" but the full screen shows about 6" & the other 1" is a double. If that makes sense. So pretty much, it didn't work right. So now I have to start over & figure out what to do.

I'll keep updating on what works & what doesn't...

Happy HYBRiD_WM8650_UBEROID_1.3.0_v5 Worked for me too

I finally found an image for the WM8650 7" Android tablet (non 3G) that makes the tablet rock! Installation is super easy but does wipe the device. Backup any data you want to keep. You will also need an SD card you can format. The difference in loading this ROM is night and day. No more strange Chinese apps, no more lockups or unexplained reboots and access to the real Android Market directly on the PC. Any apps I paid for on my Android Phone were available for download to the tablet now too!


Download Uberoid ROM.
Gamefront

Download SD Formatter and install it on a Windows PC.
SD Formatter 3.0 for SD/SDHC/SDXC - SD Association

Connect the SD card to your computer and use the SD formatter to create an empty FAT32 volume.

Unzip the Uberoid download to an empty folder on your PC first, then copy the files onto the SD card. (for some reason extraction directly to the SD card failed on me)

The Tech Know web site has many ROMs to try. My device has a blue LED, WiFi Only and is 7 inches. If your device does not fit that description, you can still follow my upgrade instructions but you need a different ROM.

I went with the V5 HYBRiD ROM instead of the one you mentioned (Green LED instead of Blue) and it worked on the first shot.

The only thing I would add to this is that before I copied the wmt_scriptcmd and FirmwareInstall folder to the root of my freshly formatted SD card, I first ran the CHANGER.bat file that came inside the HYBRiD_WM8650_UBEROID_1.3.0_v5 7-zip archive file. This little batch file lets you choose the specific WM8650 device you have and makes some changes to the FirmwareInstall folder to prepare it for the upgrade. Here are the lines that applied to my model, in case you are curious what the batch file does:

copy FirmwareInstall\env\M70007T FirmwareInstall\env\env_uboot /y
copy FirmwareInstall\uzImageGREEN.bin FirmwareInstall\uzImage.bin /y

I bought my device on eBay for $100 plus shipping, thinking I would take a chance on it because it has speakers and a front-facing camera and an ethernet adapter, etc. And the ROM it came installed with was horrible -- the performance was so bad it was unusable. I went to the Privacy / Factory Data Reset settings option to try to clean things up a bit, and I got rid of some of the Chinese apps but I also lost a file explorer and went back a couple of build revisions (maybe from 1.3 to 1.1). At that point, I had not much left to lose. I was just about to give up on it when a friend recommended I try to see if there was a newer, better ROM available.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post all this information. It would have been impossible to do without this, but now that it's done my tablet is so much better. The "resistive" rather than "capacitive" touch screen is a little annoying, but if you use your fingernail or a stylus of some kind, it's workable. In fact, I'm a lot more precise typing on the virtual keyboard with a stylus than with my finger.

I actually ended up running through the install twice because I could not get the SD card out quickly enough the first time through. The 2nd time, the install seemed to pause longer at the end and gave a little message to remove it and after that I was all set.

The pre-installed Angry Birds worked beautifully right from the start. I haven't tried either market yet (it's 3:00 a.m. and I'm ready for sleep), but I will check it out and see if I can get my apps without issue. WiFi is working and I am able to browse various sites.

I was a little concerned about not backing up the pre-loaded ROM before booting up with the new one, but it turned out to be well worth the risk. The hybrid ROM looks to have support for maybe 14 variations, so a big thanks to whoever is putting in all that development work too.

Just to be perfectly clear, I downloaded from here:

HcH'z TechKnow [www.HcH.net.tc] - Login

And I chose option 11 in the CHANGER.bat for VIA WM8650.

Here are some other sites I found useful tonight:

I downloaded the APK for AndExplorer here directly when I was trying to get ROMManager to work (never did)
Android free file manager, explorer - AndExplorer

I wonder now if ROMManager would work:
My Brain Hurts: ROM Manager and Clockwork Recovery Image

And for unpacking the 7z file:
7-Zip

I'll keep working with the tablet and post anything else that might be useful. Thanks again for everyone who has contributed to this thread.

The one major thing I lost in the upgrade is the Amazon App Store. Ironically, I was able to install the app store under the old, crappy ROM, though the apps I downloaded often performed poorly. Now I can't run any of those apps because I can't get the app store to re-install. Definitely sucks.

I like this tablet, but I would tell anyone thinking of buying it that it's going to take some effort to get it working the way you want. It's a bit of science project.

Alright so this is what I did.

My screen is 8" I don't know why I thought it was 7".
My model is M80003W with a GREEN LED.

I downloaded this, HYBRiD_WM8650_UBEROID_1.3.0_v5.7z
You have to unzip it & put it in a file. (I saved it on my computer in case anything happened.

(IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE YOUR TOUCH SCREEN ISN'T OFF...MINE WAS)
You need to go into the Firmware Install File & find ENV.
Open VIA with Notepad, Open M80003W with Notepad.

The instructions were a little confusing to me but I figured it out after a few times.

In VIA, Find this line

setenv touchcodec uor615x

Then paste this line as its replacement

setenv wmt.io.touch 1:uor615x:0:800:600.

Do the same for the M80003W line but look for this line

lines below, copy them & replace the corresponding lines in M80003W:

setenv wmt.io.ts.2dcal 3 -17786 68960183 14239 12 -5362731 80387
And replace it with the same line you replaced the other file with,

setenv wmt.io.touch 1:uor615x:0:800:600


Save the files into the same place where you found them.


Then go to the beginning of the files & look for CHANGER. It is a WINDOWS BATCH FILE.
This green window will open & have a scary looking guy on it. Type 6 & press enter.

Then take your SD card out of the computer & put it into your Tablet while it is OFF. When it turns back on pay attention to what is going on because you need to take out the Micro SD in order for the tablet to restart.

I still have some Touch screen issues so I went to Settings & selected TOUCHSCREEN CALIBRATION. I calibrated it & now it is working!

Great stuff!!

Default Help Please

Hi all, new here. Was reading some posts in this thread yesterday and tried to "fix" my wm8650. Followed instructions to the letter about installing new ROM to make it better but now it the screen just remains blank. Its on (the blue LED) shows but nothing happens.

I know I may have damaged it completely but I just wanted to ask if there were any suggestion to bring it back to life. Even to the default is possible.

@Oeltheman try another ROM, bro. That's the only hope.

---

I love this tablet for the price. Right now, my Dad is borrowing it because he might buy one now but he wanted to test drive it! He's going to have me FLASH it, which will be fun when his comes on in.

For the price, this tablet is top notch. If you're expect iPad speeds, you better be ready to shell out $400+ for one. This tablet will just work out of the box, and will improve if you flash it with a new ROM.

Oh wow! Well, maybe I could e-mail you the download link. If you'd like it, Private Message me with your e-mail and I'll download it for you and send it to you in a .zip file.

just out of curiosity, how long does it take to install/upload? I just followed the instructions for mine (green LED). It's on a black screen that says "Uberoid" but hasn't booted to a desktop after about 10-15 minutes

* It finally booted to a desktop, then asked me what application to use to open something. My touchpad doesn't respond for some reason.

** Edit 2**
I used the file WM8650_1.3.0_HoneyCombMOD_20110510-HcH. I have a Green LED. Everything came up, it looks great, but the calibration is off. To click on a line item such as in Settings, I have to click the line below it. Calibrate says its done, but its still a bit off

Hi,
I'm new.
I've download and install new rom HoneyCom and all Is working but when I try web search, Flash player isn't working. I keep getting the blue lego cube with the questions mark. The strange thing is the Youtube app works fine and I can clearly find that Flash player 10.1 evolution is installed. I would try and install a new version but can't found it in the market and the website Android Market is still being stupid and saying that my tablet is not supported or something.
I have tried to install a downloaded version but it keeps telling it can't install it.

Any help would be nice.
Thank you
Paul

It took me about 6mins or a little more. When it was happening there was alot of stuff happening on the screen and at the end it ask me to remove SD card. Then it rebooted with new rom.

To heck with the roms... tried everyone that everyone here and else where suggested, none of the work on this tablet (I have the 3G version)...

BUT...

I found a solution to the craptastic android market that comes pre-installed. Open the browser, go to Amazon app market, sign in, send yourself an email to dl the appmarket app. Install said appmarket app from your email account link. Use the Amazon appmarket app. Problem solved.

I do, however, find it a LOT faster to use my desktop to find apps I like, then just add them to my queue. Then I use the Amazon appmarket app on the tablet and install them.

I now have a tablet that is useful to me, with plenty of free apps available via Amazon, as well as paid ones. The apps available are the same ones you can get on AppBrain and the real Android AppMarket. For non-tech savvy people, this is an easy option for making this tablet usable.

I have this tablet that has the three colors. Red when off, blue when charging and green when on. I tried all roms (uberoid and etc..) without success. It stays on the uberoid logo for ever. Does anyone has a clue ?

Thanks

I have one of these and right out of the box it didn't work at all just stayed on the screen with the little android robot with the version numbers in the bottom right of the screen. The problem is there are quite a few variations of basically the same tablet on the market and each one of them needs a specific rom to boot it. Here is a link to a thread where you can obtain all the infor and files you need to root your device and from then on it's quite a neat little piece of work. My only complaint is it's a bit slow and it only has the 256mb ram capacity. I tried it on my PC802 version of the WM8650 chipset and it worked beautifully.

Good luck, it's a fairly simple procedure and worked for me on the first try. The important thing is identifying exactly which model of the WM8650 you have.

Angry Still cant get my Pad to work....

Update:
Tried the following: Uberoid_WM8650_2.2_v1.2.2_NL_20110414_8-HcH

FAILED!! No suprise there haha

As usual, formatted the SD card. unzipped the file onto the SD card, etc, waited over 5mins and figured it had frozen again as all this had was "WM8650 Android2.2 upgrading...." and nothing more, just to make sure i tried it twice and still the same.

So i went back to: HYBRiD_WM8650_UBEROID_1.3.0_v5

This time i tried the 8inch options now as my Pad's nuffed, so what harm can it do?!
Options 3, 4, 5, 6 & 10 and still nothing!!

Now i really dont know what to do with it but use it as a paperweight.
Is mine some weird unique version or just useless?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.....

Do you think that you could move this thread to that forum just so that it can be found much easier by other users?

EDIT:....OOPS lol thank you very much for already doing that!

Go to this website

HcH'z TechKnow [www.HcH.net.tc] - View forum - ROMs

donwload this rom: WM8650_Android2.2_1.2.2_20110409 *LATEST*

descompress it and copy all the files in the root of the sd card. then turn off the table put the card and turn on the table (with full battery) then wait some 5 min and you will have a new and better operating system.

For more detail read that forum!

------------ I am upgrading now, so far no problems, I'll post an update when it's all done.
I bought 8650 today and I don't want mess with stock ROM. Is it possible to run this ROM from SD card (dual boot) just like with NOOK color?

Is the tablet rooted (hacked/jailbroken/etc.)? Mine is having the same problem. My problem can be found at Wifi Not Working After Root The entire problem is listed.

Welcome to AndroidForums by the way! Hopefully you solve your problem...

A couple of things here:

I followed the instructions here: {How To}Installing missing android market and google services

and got android market onto my 8650 without any problem. Worth it if you can avoid re-flashing and risking bricking the thing.

However, I now cannot set the clock. I don't know whether it has anything to do with the procedure above but I have no option for automatic clock set on/off and the manual clock setting is greyed out.

Anyone met this and have any tips on how I can set the clock? Clock sync does not work sadly and although I have an orange 3G dongle that looks like it would be compatible (to allow automatic clock setting) I can't work out how to set that up.

Sounds good about the adding market thing...not sure if I can help with the clock problem. Try resetting the tablet to factory and see if you can change it then.

I would recommend resetting, then setting the clock then doing your method to get Android Market back on it and see if you can change it then. If not, I would recommend rooting your tablet to just get Market that way. Market came installed with the root so you don't need to use that method above.

Default Touch pad

Never liked how stiff the touch pad was. Did an upgrade, rather tried several. They come up okay, but the touchpad doesn't work at all in any of them. Don't have the original, have to use a USB mouse. So I wrote the manufacturer.

Anyone have an idea about the touchpad?

I finally found an image for the WM8650 7" Android tablet (non 3G) that makes the tablet rock! Installation is super easy but does wipe the device. Backup any data you want to keep. You will also need an SD card you can format. The difference in loading this ROM is night and day. No more strange Chinese apps, no more lockups or unexplained reboots and access to the real Android Market directly on the PC. Any apps I paid for on my Android Phone were available for download to the tablet now too!


Download Uberoid ROM.
Gamefront

Download SD Formatter and install it on a Windows PC.
SD Formatter 3.0 for SD/SDHC/SDXC - SD Association

Connect the SD card to your computer and use the SD formatter to create an empty FAT32 volume.

Unzip the Uberoid download to an empty folder on your PC first, then copy the files onto the SD card. (for some reason extraction directly to the SD card failed on me)

The wmt_scriptcmd file and FirmwareInstall folder should be on the root of the card.

With the android tablet turned off, insert the SD card, and turn it back on.

During startup the android tablet will read the SD card and install the firmware. It took about 4 minutes for the process to complete before the device rebooted into the new OS. Watch the screen because the SD card must be ejected when the firmware installation completes or the upgrade will run again after the device restarts.

After installation I went into the applications list and found an app for fixing the market. I was then able to go into the regular Android Market after setting up my WiFi connection. I found it necessary to search for GMail in the market to update the version contained in the ROM image. After doing that I was able to access GMail on the tablet.

Everything else I did was related to setting up the environment the way I like such as using ADW Launcher as my default launcher. Moving icons around etc.

* Note that there is a large clock widget on the home screen that will prevent you from putting icons on the desktop, I removed that.

Overall this improved the device 1000%. I was really disappointed in the tablet and now I am extremely happy with it.

Clarification: Others have been reporting that they have tried the information I have posted, some with success and others without success. Make sure your loading the right ROM for your device. The Tech Know web site has many ROMs to try. My device has a blue LED, WiFi Only and is 7 inches. If your device does not fit that description, you can still follow my upgrade instructions but you need a different ROM.
THANKS! Got it to work thanks to you. But the touch pad doesn't work, so I figure that is a problem for the manufacturer. --Kent

My touchpad never was perfect. It became a little better once the tablet was rooted and I suspect that it only became faster because rooting it freed up some space on the RAM to enable a faster response.

I suggest using a pen or other pointy object for this sort of "touch screen". It really ought to come with one, but a pen or mechanical pencil (DO NOT HAVE THE ACTUAL WRITING PART OUT OR ELSE IT WILL SCRATCH AND LEAVE MARKS ON YOUR SCREEN) will do just fine. I had an older phone that didn't respond to human touch very well so I carried a pen with me and it worked fairly well. I use a pen sometimes on this tablet and it seems to work well too.

If you don't want to be cheap and take a chance at ruining your tablet, you can go to Staples or just about any electronic/office supply store or online and buy a tablet pen made especially for devices that won't scratch it or damage it. It's called a "stylus".

I would recommend trying something along the lines of Craigslist or another type of classified listing whether online or in the newspaper. Or Google the device's name + "repair" after it and see what results you get. Also try Googling the device's name + the problem and you may find others who have had the problem and have a solution.

If you go the route of classifieds like Craigslist, I recommend searching for "Android repair" and see what results you get. Contact each person and ask them specifically about your device, it's problem, and them possibly fixing it.

If you want to try again with the seller, contact them and explain that it is not a problem with the charging cable, but the actual port on the tablet itself. Ask them if they can't fix it, if they could get you the telephone number/e-mail address/mailing address/etc. of the company that produces the tablet so that you can contact them and inquire about a fix. If they sold you the tablet on eBay and that's their business, I would expect them to have some sort of communication back to the company that produces the product.

Good luck!

Well good luck to you! I am glad that you were able to get in touch with them and found a solution...just hope all is downhill from here.

Was your tablet rooted? For some warranties, they may not cover devices if they are rooted which would require you to unroot it before sending it to ensure that all goes smooth in the replacement process.

Basically, it's a cheap tablet that I decided to try. It came from China, shipped and made there, and comes with a real version of Android 2.2. However, Market is not included in this version. Some other Chinese alternative was added instead...I kept wondering why it didn't want to register my Gmail account. So would applying a GAPPs to the tablet resolve my issue? I'd just like Market...I can work my way from there. And does anyone know of any root methods or any ROMs available for this tablet?
Dear NDH 777,
I have all the files you needed cause we are the manufacturer of this product.
I am in Shenzen China now (where all those MIDs were manufactured and shipped) and just shipped 3500 sets of this to France. The customer said it sells really good and he wants to order 10,000 more next week.
He bought 1,000 of 10" which of better CPU and bigger RAM/ROM, but not as cheap as this one and not that good selling
The price I gave him was like USD 50 for each, if you are intrested, you can send me emails (wjq0925@gmail.com) or find me on yahoo messenger or skype with ID wjq0925

Thank you very much for the reply to my thread! We finally got some ways of rooting the tablet and adding new ROM(s) to it to improve it. For it's price, it isn't that bad. Most of my friends enjoy it as do I personally.

After unlocking it to its full potential, or what I believe to be, it is a much better tablet than I originally explained here and other places on the net. I am much happier and I really do appreciate you taking the time to come here and leave us some sort of help in regards to our troubles.

Got my new one today, and it was immediately dysfunctional. Called the number for global phoenix (seller on ebay) and they send me a link to a hybrid rom. Downloaded and finally got it to start the loading, then screen went black and has stayed for >15 minutes now.

power button doesn't do anything but turn on and off the green light behind the "back" button.

Suggestions? call it DOA and request a working fixed and ready to go model?

I'd say, call and request a new one. Tell them the ROM they suggested didn't work.

Which model do you have? We found out that there are a few different variations...
Mine is the one with 3G and Blue LED. We determine LED by the light that comes on while charging and while the tablet is running. There is also another that has a green LED and another Blue LED without 3G, I think. If you can provide more details on which model you have, we might be able to help further.

Back button? And green light? Mine only has one physical button on the outside of it and that's the "back button" that looks like those on the iPads. That button as well as the side buttons, volume for up and down, an "M" button, and a camera button I believe.

From the sound of it, you may have a completely different model than the rest of us. But maybe not. If you have any pictures, that could also help us further.
================================================
To anyone else from this point out, if you can, get pictures of your device so we can say with more sureness "Yeah, that's the same model I have." Get as many pictures of it as you can such as the front, sides, back, top and bottom for even greater help.

Hi ZeeHomem

Have you managed to solve your problem with the Microphone as yet?

I also have some questions for you.Have you flashed/rooted your tablet or are you still running the original ROM?

Thanks

Hi ndh777,

Basically i have joined this forum becasue of you.

I have been following your various posts and have come to the conclusion that you might be able to help.

I beleive that we both have the same type of tablet.

I have two quick questions.

Which is the last ROM that you used to get your tablet working and do you have a copy of the ORIGINAL ROM.

I am in particular looking for the ORIGINAL ENV file.

Thanks
