Received the item Wholesale Product Snapshot Product name is 10.2inch ePad ZT 180 Android 2.2 512MB Camera HDMI Tablet PC drop shipping support from Eternal Team. So far good, except , I am not able to open the external SD Card. It does not recognize the micro Sd card, or the USB flash drive.

Both storage media above are not brand new, I tried the SD card from my phone. I also downloaded a file mgr from APS (ASTRO), stil no luck to read the external storage. Does it need brand new sd card?
Any information on how to get this resolve would be apprecaited.

I received my Tablet: 10.2" Android 2.2 FROYO ZT 180 512MB RAM Tablet pc on eBay (end time 26-Mar-11 22:24:55 GMT)

And ... it is almost JUNK

The display has poor quality ... limited view angle, and lot of "clouds" effect due to not well distributed back light.

3G support is NONE ... seller change the picture of the product stating 3G just before delivery ...

Volume buttons are assigned to other functions ... that people need to learn by guessing.

Andorid 2.2 inside is very UNSTABLE ... around 50% of the application are crashing.

Fring does not recognize the camera and it crash while trying to make a call.
Included Skype is a joke ... just good for IM.

My learning is : just a tablet to give to a 3/4 years old kid for mess around with some simple kids applications.

Quite a waste of money.

On top, WLAN range is incredible small

Tchuss

e_lm_70

ps: If just they can provide a stable Andorid 2.2 ... it could make some sense ... else ... is quite useless

pps: SD card works for me ... but I put in the card from my Sanyo camera ... with 100 pictures and videos in one single folder ... and ... when trying to open a photo ... it hangs forever ..

ppps: Very often you need to reset this device ... since is freezing ... power button will not work, as well anything else will not change ... only the reset can rescue the device

Ok try this have the sd card inn your tablet and reboot it see if it see it then, do you have root explorer some type of file explorer if so, even tho it is grayed out go to your file manger app open it go to /external sd card and see if the movies/pics/videos and other files are being read. On my tablet it sometime does this where it is grayed out but using my fie explorer i go to the external sd card and it does read it.

I agree with some of what you are saying the camera is pointless if you can use it to do video calling or take picture/very well but I'm talking to one of the developers from Zenithink to get us the source code so the developers that make all these custom Roms/themes can start making our tablets a better experience.

I start to use it a bit more.

What I can say:

YouTube, Internet browser are working very good. (So if this is the main usage, it can make still sense)
On the bad side is the WLAN range is terrible, worst ever I had in any device.
Display quality is quite poor, mainly due to incredible narrow view angle.

Video play back is quite impressive ... I did manage to see in good quality video done in Full HD 30fps from my Sanyo CG100 . something that most NetBook and most notebook can't manage to show.

I heard that the apps that don't works is relative common issue on the Android word (not a nice word I would say)

What is missing is:
- Proper audio and video web cam drivers in the tablet, to make it working with VoIP and Video on IP
- Fring support
- Maybe a jump on Android 2.3 when will be available ...

Anyhow ... is the Firmware & OS for this tablet from an Open Source Project ? Or is just in the hands of Zenithink ?

Is the link 10inch_4GB+512MB_Android2.2.rar???????|????-????-?????? official ? or is just a upload done by some private people ?

Thanks

e_lm_70

ps: Angry Birds works fine too ... very nice with big display ... so only for this plus YouTube & Internet Browser ... make this acceptable for be bought ... but ... there are good potential on this tablet ... and will be nice to expand more.

pps: I'm also looking for see and extranal USB-Memory sticks ? Is this a Android Limitation ?

ppps: The USB-OTG ... it is working fine by default on my Windows XP ... at least I don't have to pass data over SD card.

As of right now it is not open source but there are many of us talking to the developers to get it open source. This would help there sales because then people could start making custom Roms/themes get the camera and other things fixed. People would see the actual potential that this tablet offers

Default SD Card Reading Issue

Tried with yet another explore, but no luck reading the external SD card.
is there some option that says not to read external card? Wonder I might have mistakenly selected that option, thus, skipping the external card?

As last resort, how do I do the factory reset? I will try and see, fi that resolve this issue? ( i have tried the reset key few times for other freeze related things, I am not talking about clicking the reset button).

To do a factory reset tap menu/setting/privacy setting/factory reset make sure you use my back up pro and back up apps& data so you dont have to find them all again

Angry SD Card

Yes the external SD card is my biggest frustration with this tablet. I have tried several 4 gig ,8 gig and 16 gig . all supposed to work with this tablet. It will only see the 4 gig cards from different brands. BUT IT WON"T MOVE any software onto it. I do get it to read memory sycks of various sizes. I have noy yet done any updates to the firware as I am not very familiar with tablets yet. I would just love to be able to use the extra syorage of the external SD cards

You may need to reformat it.

I'm using my Pad for most internet reading, ebooks, some news apps, mp3 player, Youtube.

Youtube in HD is working very well. Reading is fine.

Some buttons on web sites don't work in the browser, which is a PITA. I contacted Zenithink US once and got a very arrogant reply about support and why I shouldn't buy direct from Asia...then they disappeared. The Chinese site is impossible to navigate unless you know Chinese.

The camera is pointless, the SD card is flaky (USB works fine). I can't get more than 3 hours/charge and the WiFi Antenna is awful. The touch screen is very frustrating -it will sense location off by up to 1/2 inch.

Overall, hate to say it, but I would have been much better off with a used iPad. This may change in a few months when serious Android tablet apps are available, but even now, the latest version of "Angry Birds" won't install, and many installs that require hardware recognition don't work. This says that no one has this device on their development radar.

I regard it as slightly better than a Kindle, but not a serious pad.

I have the Zenithink 2.2 512 MB 4GB 2, Updated it to the latest version off there site and have it working. Some things are unstable but for the most part working good. 1 thing I found is if you have a large SD it makes the Unit Flakey. I tried a 32 bit and had all kinds of issues. I finally landed on a 8GB Sanddisk and that is working fine. Hope you have better luck...

Angry Birds work perfectly on my ePad ZT-180 v2.

Internet Browser + YouTube + AngryBirds ... alone justify the sense of this tablet.

It will be nicer if the OS get more stable, with better camera support.

Fring does not work not even for voice, so VoIP and Video over IP ... are impossible right now ... and this is a big limitation on my view

e_lm_70

ps: Soon are coming better Tablets on the market, Adroid 3.0 , etc ... the Zenithink team would better open the source code in order to keep up to date this tablet, else will soon sell nothing of this tablet ,.... maybe they have a new v3 on the pipeline ... but ... still will be nice for them to open v1 and v2 to open source ... and keep the old customer happy ...

also, this unit has two sd card slots, only one will be recognized at a time...does not matter what size...tried 8 and 16 gig...
also, can not 'root' this unit, can not 'update' either...

watch out for this one...similar to ZT180

.
I've seen it working on other pads in videos, but all I get is the "-18 unknown error" I get on 1/3 of my downloads.

Spent an hour troubleshooting. waste of time.

The new Beta of Flashplayer 10.2 for 2.2 doesn't install either.

I think I just bought an eReader.

Thanks ...

This works fine also for my Tablet

It works only when a video is playing (YouTube, or other video player) ... it does switch to the video under playing resolution in HDMI, I have seen quite nice a home HD video, displayed at 1920x1080 ... still my TV play natively and better these content ... so not much use of it .. just for test

It is a pity it does not work HDMI for show the normal screen on big tv ... would have been nice to play angry birds on maxi tv


Since people report mixed information about this tablet ... I think first it must be clarified if they have the 1st or 2nd version (2nd version has 512mb ram) ... and if they updated to latest FW

I did install a different photo/media player .. default gallery ... was not working fine to me ... too slow, often crash ... I got a free QuickPict (or something named similar) ... and now it is much better for see photos ...

I'm going to present to my grand-ma this tablet ... and show video and photo after adding a 16gb memory card, is my main aim for the gift.

The new Beta of Flashplayer 10.2 for 2.2 doesn't install either.

I think I just bought an eReader.
Maybe you have an wlan problem ... range is very poor ...

I never got any download fail on my tablet ... but I need to sit no more then 3 meters far away from the WLAN router

The latest version firmware (for the v2) has a working flash player (10.1). It also clears up a lot of the issues with the sd card.

The flash download on the zenithink site also has an older version of Angry Birds, no reason to install that as the latest Market version works just fine. Flash will only work (as far as I can tell) with the inbuilt browser and not any others, like Dolphin.

Flash download - http://dl.dbank.com/c0wad029wg
Firmware download - http://dl.dbank.com/c0h005u7qk

I have been running on it for 3 days with no known issues.

WLAn is fine, I download the full .apk file, it just cannot install. Not important enough to spend time.

Kindle works great. It's fine, but if someone were to consider buying one, get the cheapest price, because any claims of 'support' from current retailers is moot.

Hello all, first post here at android forums. I bought a zt-180 (elonex etouch) it's a 2GB, 256mb. I like it however it crashes a lot, generally it will freeze / hang pretty much once every 10 minutes or so. I have tried the original elonex firmware and also the 0120 Froyo and 0117 Eclair but still instability and crashing just doing normal things like browsing / downloading / opening and closing apps. In terms of expectations for this device - does everyone's crash this frequently or should I take it back for a replacement? Thanks.

Youtube in HD is working very well. Reading is fine.

Some buttons on web sites don't work in the browser, which is a PITA. I contacted Zenithink US once and got a very arrogant reply about support and why I shouldn't buy direct from Asia...then they disappeared. The Chinese site is impossible to navigate unless you know Chinese.

The camera is pointless, the SD card is flaky (USB works fine). I can't get more than 3 hours/charge and the WiFi Antenna is awful. The touch screen is very frustrating -it will sense location off by up to 1/2 inch.

Overall, hate to say it, but I would have been much better off with a used iPad. This may change in a few months when serious Android tablet apps are available, but even now, the latest version of "Angry Birds" won't install, and many installs that require hardware recognition don't work. This says that no one has this device on their development radar.

I regard it as slightly better than a Kindle, but not a serious pad.
I did format my old 4gb card, and tried it, still no luck. Have not bought the new SD card yet. Are you saying new SD card need format (using the pad) before 1st use?
I could not format the old card using the pad, it it does not see the drive.. as if nothing there..It asked if want to format, and give all the warning before format, but never really format it. I format using the cell.

Default love my ZT-180 running 2.2

I just recently got my first android device, a 256MB ZT-180. I flashed it to 2.2 and am going to try install flash, though I know it will be slow if it does work. It's no big deal, I enjoy couch internet and the cute games enough to make it make it a fun device regardless.

These forums have been VERY helpful, thanks!

Ok, I figured this all out. It wasn't easy interpreting the "Chinglish" from that website.

The Zenithink site has two files at the links above. Both need to be downloaded via PC and expanded from the rar files into one file folder named "ZT update".
2 files rar> 2 folders unzipped> take files from ZT image and place in "ZT update".

This folder and files need to be transferred to the device's _external_ SD card (use "copy").

---Back up all files to ext SD card or USB, because the whole internal card will be reformatted--

You power on the device holding down the "Back" button -the device should see the update on the SD card. It will then run the upgrade -do nothing until it stops (~10 min.). Better to keep the device plugged in.

The new OS has a black menu bar, and it's immediately about 30% faster. You need to recalibrate the screen, setup wifi, etc., all from scratch.

Now, you can load Adobe Flash 10.1 (but not 10.2). Also from the Zenithink site.

You can then download angry birds or whatever from market, but make sure the SD card is unmounted.

With the latest firmware, 0312, Flash now works...kinda..framerate is crap, images very blocky. However, you can now browse all Flash-based sites, which is something you can never do with an iPad.
Skype beta is now loaded, but I can't get it to work.

OS is better -black menu bar, volume keys in menu bar work, settings key is now in the main keys. It's faster.

Better Keyboard 8 no longer works, but 7 does.

My 4 year old thinks Angry Birds is "pretty cool". We'll pretend I'm teaching him about physics.

Yes, it's a V2. When you get it, check the version of OS. You should download the latest firmware before you invest too much time in setting it up.

Your instructions are from the internal SD card, mine are from the external SD (TF) card, as by the protocol from Zenithink.

It's for the external sdcard it's the only sdcard that you can remove from the tablet

Hello. I am trying to connect with my 3g modem to my Zenithink-zt180 (Android TABLET)

The problem is when i click on Settings>Wireless&Networks>Mobile networks ( under the mobile network line it says "Set options for roamin,networks ,APNs) and that is what i want to access, but when i click on it it just appears like this :

3G net
open and use 3g net <-- It's possible to click on a button here - it goes green and it says "preparing, try again later"

3G device
3G net card information <----When i insert the 3g modem, the name of the modem comes up under "3g net card information"

I would really appreciate help in how i can access the roamin,network,apn thing under the "mobile network"

Thanks!

Well I got it going again. I dowloaded yet again the new firmware and it worked this time.
It is still 2.1 though and i may just have a go at putting 2.2 on it. Maybe, I dont want to rock the boat though
Thanks for the info

Hi, Iīm new here and just recieved my ZT-180-102 512mb 4G and everything is working fine after 3 days of use.
Well to anwser about some issues peple are having.
Iīm loading flash on my without any problem. Flash videos are a little choppy but do work.
Also when putting in a external microsd card at first it didnīt reconize it (grayed out) but after I went into windows in my notebook and formated it to FAT32 my 16gb microsd (kingstone) was reconized just fine and I can play music and videos from there just fine.
I also installed Fring on it and on my wifeīs (as I bought one for me and other form her) I got a message that video call was not supported but also a message asking if I wanted to turn the cam on and was able to make the video call without any problem (although the camera is kinda dark and fuzzy but works).
I also unistalled the market application that came with the tablet because of intabillity issues and put a new one that I found in Pirate Bay and it works as a charm.
And finally about the 3G capability you have to be carefull as the sellers donīt always make it clear but the 3G capability for this device means that it will accept and work with an 3G external USB modem and not that it has a built in modem as was especied by the seller wisecorporation in the site Dhgate.com (cost only US$ 323.95 for two tablets with freeshipping to Brazil).
Oh, I was forgetting, the HDMI work fine as there are lots of tuttorial on youtube on how to use it on the tv (just have to tap a button for it to work) the only problem that I find anoying is that there in no way to make the image apear on the tablet and the tv at the same time, wich makes it hard sometimes to browse and select what you want to play.

Hope I help a little bit and will post new information as I get more familiar with this device.
