Im also looking at this tablet, but it looks like you have made my mind up for me in NOT buying this specific pad.

I found this online and helped me restore my zt-180.

Firmware 0120 is now out and running Android 2.2! I have not tested this and I’m yet to organise and upload the update files.


Note: If you have only flashed your tablet using burntool-v07.2 then you can only use the USB flash mode below. Once you have flashed using the new burntool (located in the new firmware) you will be able to use the TF mode for any future firmware upgrades.
**Attention**: This firmware contains an SPL upgrade which means you may brick your tablet if you lose power while flashing. Ensure you have the power connected whenever you update firmware. Also, after doing this upgrade you will not be able to revert back to older firmwares.
For flashing via USB:
Step 1: Download: MY LINK TO COME – For now you can download the files fromDownload epad_256M_nand_android_2.2_0120_Public.rar for free on uploading.com (Please note I have not tested or uploaded these files)
Step 2: Extract the rar file and go into the folder
Step 3: Locate the correct zImage file as per your tablet version and screen resolution. Models built before Aug 15 use 1024×576. Once you know which file suits your tablet, rename it to zImage (ie. Right click & rename fromzImage_1024x576 or zImage_1024x600 to zImage).
Step 4: Run Burntool.exe (Note: With this version there is no need to go to Settings. As long as all the files are in the same directory as burntool, it will locate the necessary files)
Step 5: With the tablet turned off, connect it to your computer using the mini-USB port
Step 6: On the tablet, hold down the Menu button and then press the Power button
Step 7: The first status box in burntool should light up green.
Note: If this is the first time connecting the tablet to your PC you will need to install the included USB drivers
Step 8: Click start to commence update. Disconnect cable once complete and press the Home button
For flashing via TF (MicroSD) card:
Step 1: Download:Download epad_256M_nand_android_2.2_0120_Public.rar for free on uploading.com
Step 2: Copy the “zt-update” folder to the root of the TF card (This folder should have these files: zImage, system.pack.img and user.pack.img)
Note: Follow step 3 above to ensure you are using the correct zimage file
Step 3: Insert the TF card into TF card slot
Step 4: Press the Menu button (The menu key is the last long key on the top of tablet) & Power button at the same time
Step 5: Follow the on-screen instructions
Step 6: Once firmware is updated, the tablet will automatically restart

Still never recommend Zenithink ZT-180 epad. Don't waste your money. Get the real thing.

It's all about what you're paying for. If you have $400.00 for an tablet buy an ipad, but if you have $150.00 and just want to have thousands of apps and play some nice games, check you're e-mail, check you're facebook, check you're bank account, download music, stream music, read books, have a daily bible study, check craigs list, watch youtube, will get an good old cheep zenithink zt-180 and don't forget us the animation settings to turn on the video accelerator. Hope this helps
