Good afternoon. I bought from a friend a tablet android,named "SmartPad". (images for reference,sorry,my camera is really bad,but that's the one i have)

I tried to root it with Universal Androot and superoneclick without success. I tried z4root but i cannot install it (because it has android 1.5).

I want to know if i can (and how) upgrade the O.S to a higher version (1.6 or 2.2) or at least root so i can uninstall a lot of aplications.

The model is "CL-ARM M7". And this is from "About MID":
Model Number:sdkDemo
Firmware Version:1.5
Kernel Version: 2.6.25 rockchip version 1.2.7 (ruiguan)
Build Number: RK-1.3.2.eng.root.20100630.145439


(sorry for the english,i'm still learning it. And sorry for the noob questions)

1. OS upgrade more than 1.5 not availible now
2. U can use my firmware revisions from here - all unneeded apps removed, very fast and clean.
3. Root no possible now too

1. Google to help you  :)

2. Small GUIDE:

- power off the device
- start the RKAndroidBatchUpgrade.exe
- select UPDATE.IMG file
- check for the BOOT Version - 4.10
- hold MENU (round) button
- plug the mini-USB cable
- install drivers (if you need)
- check for GREEN plate N.5
- click UPGRADE
- plate N.5 will yellow
- wait for device reboot
- unplug USB

hehehe,thanks. But the question is wich revision i can use. you have "FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE rev.1" and "FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE rev.2". So what are the differences between them :S

and i can't find RKAndroidBatchUpgrade.exe,just RKAndroid_ENG.zip. I can use the second program to do the upgrade,or i need to look for the batchupgrade?

And i tried the RKAndroid and nothing. and the pc doesn't detect the tablet turn off and pressing the button menu.what could be the problem?

Hi
I used RKAndroid DM v1.2 from Hipad it works well but be careful with the firmware you use otherwise you could end up like me with a Brick
