Default Great Post!!

There is a lot of work behind this post I am sure. Thanks I got a ZT-180 V2 but it did not come with WIN CE. The add on DHGATE was very misleading I thought i was buying a dual system tablet. Android 2.2 really works great on this tablet. GPS does not work no satellite com ??

Question

I hope I don't get in too much trouble for asking this question here, especially if I missed in it in my search (my apologies if that is the case). I have a Zenithink 10.2" with firmware build 20110503.120935 test-keys.

I need to know what the latest firmware build is and if I have to install any other firmware versions IN BETWEEN the latest build or can I just install the latest one and I'm all good.

Ryan

Can anyone tell me if this is a yes or a no? It seems like I could just download the latest release and install it but I don't want to brick my tablet, either.

I downloaded and installed this one listed at the top of the forum, the one with the blue background and has the "ZEPAD" startup screen.

android_2.2_512_4GB_10_0613 with F.rar

No problems experienced so far.

Default Firmware Link Doesn't Work

Not that I can read Chinese anyway but the file seems to have been removed.

Anybody have an updated link?

Gee, I thought it was hard searching and following Linux based forum threads but this Android stuff takes it to a whole new level....
