    hello, i have a polaroid tab 8 i got from a supermarket on sale a few years ago and it ran on android 4.4 and all was fine but one morning i went to use the tablet and it was in the dev menu. i tried to restart the device just by turning it off and back on but it would only boot into the dev menu, ive tried to download versions of android to load onto it so i can use it again but i dont really know what im doing and it gets as far as verifying signatures but then it fails to verify and im back to the menu.

    if someone can please give me some advise or point me in the right direction that would be great, im just finding it impossible to get it up and running.

    thanks in advance,
    p.s im new, if this isn't the right section or something is wrong then i apologise

    ive looked at that site before and my device isnt on the list, i even contacted the support and they told me they cant tell me anything related to the os and that im on my own with it.

    is there a way to load another version of android onto it?

    No, you need to get the firmware specific to your device, so you need to properly identify what your device is.

    I’ve tried to identify my tablet from the list but none of the numbers on the back of mine match up to devices on the list.

    Here’s an amazon link to my tabelt if that helps at all.

    Polaroid Tab8 7.85" Tablet 16GB Quad Core Android 4.4 KitKat 5MP https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01ERT5IWO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_hDBwCbW247DRB

    Personally I'd just buy a new tablet.
    Not worth the headache in my opinion

    Yeah I’ll probably have to, just wanted to try and save it as It was a good tablet and i miss using android.

    I’ll just have to save my pennies and get something decent.

    Without showing any serial numbers, could you let us know what numbers are on the back of the tablet? You might also be able to get the model number on the recovery screen.

    Also, on the back the modle number just says: P791

    That’s is apart from serial and batch numbers.
