    So has anyone tried? Jpay wants me to mail it to them with $15.00 + s&h both ways they say if it fully functional they load Android on it and return it with all my media still on it if not they send my media (900 songs I bought from them forover$400) back on a thumb drive. Many released inmates have been screwd out of there $170 "tablet", which has no camera,speakers or replaceable battery. Help me beat the man!

    Locked bootloader apparently, and a customized Android OS, no doubt intended to be very secure. I doubt very much that root(or "jailbreak") would be possible.

    I suspect being what it is, and where it's intended to be used, that there might just be efforts to try and crack it open.

    The tablets have ability to receive Bluetooth files but can't install apks any way to get an app to install without ability to change security settings.

    FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY

    Inside prison they must be synced at a kiosk every 30 days. When unable to use a kiosk (in the hole for 7 months) it was possible to get around this. The jist is, you must manually disconnect the battery, and then you'll have time to go to a radio channel or music playlist. However, it will stay locked even though the playlist continues until the last song.
    1. On the back you`'ll see the battery is connected to the board with a white plastic plug. Being the prison model case is transparent it's visible: there's a red wire and a black wire from the battery to the plug. That's the spot you're looking for.
    2. One would need to get through the plastic uppercase to unplug it. Prisoners could use the recharge adapter to scrape away a small hole on the bottom edge (less noticeable), then poke something inside to carefully press the plug apart. Only one side needs to be disconnected for approximately 20 seconds. There's no need to totally unplug it, and then it slides back into place easier too.
    3. Be quick, sign in, and go straight to a radio channel or a music playlist.

    This is obviously a fix for the desperate. Upon release one can call jpay`s support # 800-574-5729. Like you said, they want you to send the player in to be unlocked at your own expense (you pay shipping both ways, no fee to unlock).

    As far as getting it unlocked, it shouldn't cost you but the postage to send it to them. They are supposed to unlock the player for free.
    If you can either remember what you had on it or write everything down such as purchased games and music, do so. They are screwing up players when they are just supposed to unlock them and put on them what they are supposed to have on them once unlocked. Mine came back with no sound, Bluetooth, 3 of my mixes were deleted, and it didn't work right.

    THIS IS JUST INFO ON HOW TO
    GET YOU MUSIC AN PICS OFF THE
    JPAY TABLET WHEN YOU GET
    HOME. WITHOUT SENDING IT TO THEM. ENJOY!

    Get a phone smartphone USB cable, plug it into your (windows) desktop/laptop. Then plug it into your jp5 tablet,(make sure that ur tablet. An desktop/laptop is on. Then windows will prompt u saying. Unable to install drivers. You will have to manually install a " USB storage driver".
    Open up the device manager,
    Find the unrecognized device, it should be
    Labeled jp5 media device.
    "Right click, select update drivers,
    *then on the next menu that pops up,
    *select, browse the computer for drivers.
    *select, let me pick from a list of drivers.
    *then on the next menu,
    *find the option to list all drivers / select from a list / show all drivers.
    Once you get to that the rest is easy,
    Just find the drivers called " SCANLOGIC , USB STORAGE DRIVER. INSTALL IT. THEN UR JP5 tablet sdcard storage will be accessible.

    Can somebody who has went home and mailed in their tablet to JPAY to get the unlocked version of Android please rip it off and upload it somewhere and post a link? Preferably in a image file or something that can be flashed to other devices with a little Googling.

    My sons dad died in prison. He was refused medical care from what I have gathered from grievences that were in jis petsonal belongings that were FINALLY mailed to us. There was also one of these tablets, and a letter from a cell mate stating he had documented in his "calendar " the horrible way he was treated. I have tried everything I can think of, but can't figure out the password. We don't want to use it, only to see what evidence it may contain. Any help on bypassing the password without loosing information would be greatly appreciated

    And if that doesn't work, think the only option is to return it to Jpay for them to unlock it.
    .
    To repeat something I posted previously about this prison issued tablet... "Locked bootloader apparently, and a customized Android OS, no doubt intended to be very secure.", and therefore no bypass.

    I wish you best of luck, and I really hope you do find what you need on it.

    Quite frankly if there was a backdoor in or bypass of the tablet's security, that would be a very serious problem for the prison authorities and the manufacturer.
