    Hi folks,
    A friend stopped by and asked me to help set up his tablet. I'm pretty experienced with hacking tablets, having jailbroken an ipad, rooted my viewsonic g-tablet, and am running the MIUI ROM on my Evo 4g. I figured "No big deal". Well, he brought me the thing and I was amazed. I've never seen anything like it. It has a front like an ipad (thought longer and more narrow, about the dimensions of the gtablet), with 1 button on the bezel (which looks exactly like the iPad button). None of the Android menu buttons are present.
    Hardware description:

    On the bottom, from left to right
    • Power jack
    • Ethernet port
    • HDMI Out
    • USB Port
    • Memory Card slot
    • USB Port
    • A small bump that the icon on the back has labelled as a headphone jack

    Right, from bottom to top:
    • A small hole with a Phillips head screw recessed in it
    • WiFi on/off switch
    • Speaker
    • Menu btton
    • Home Button
    • Volume Rocker
    • Power button, though it never seems to shut the device off. It just locks the screen and dims the display somewhat
    • Pinhole speaker
    • About 2.5" with nothing
    • Small brass or copper connector of some type
    • Speaker
    • Bump that probably covers another recessed Phillips screw
    • A silver stylus

    Top:
    Nothing but two stickers

    Left:
    A recessed reset button

    The screen appears to be a capacitive touch screen, as you really need the stylus to get a decent response

    The Marketplace is there, but many items don't come up. For example, I had to copy Root Explorer over from my phone, because it didn't appear in the market place. Using Root Explorer to view the build.props, the entries are:
    ro.build.id=FRF85B
    ro.build.version.incremental=eng.zjd.20110504.162548
    ro.build.version.sdk=8
    ro.build.version.codename=REL
    ro.build.version.release=2.2
    ro.build.type=user
    ro.build-user=zjd
    ro.build-host=dtlinuxserver
    ro.product.model=DISCO10
    ro.product.brand=generic
    ro.product.name=DISCO10
    ro.product.device=disco10

    Is this a Flytouch or Superpad? Do I have any realistic hope of upgrading the ROM to something more modern, like CM7 or AOSP Gingerbread?

    Any help is appreciated!

    I appears to be a Flytouch3/Superpad2 (thats what they are called!). As it reports being a DISCO10 model the only updated firmware, as Rabid1 posted earlier, are upgrades to 2.2 There is no update to 2.3 or above as yet....and there probably wont be for the foreseeable future.

    Thanks for your responses! I'll check out how to root and upgrade the ROM next. At the very least, my buddy wants to be able to edit Word and Excel docs on it, so I'll try to get Documents to Go working on it.

    Thanks again!
