Dropad A8T : What is this sexy thing?
Posted 11 December 2011 - 02:39 AM
is this baby compatible with all the firmwares for the a8? My a8 is still basically brand new, so looking to ###### that and get the T if you guys recommend it.
Please let me know, because 140 seems ridiculous for this tablet. right?

i see Bluetooth and 'visual' stereo speakers (does not mean they are in there) and the lighter plastic shell.
It seems like it is the same base model but might be the 'M7S' which needs a different bootloader. (if so the current customfirmwares are not compatible)
140 + free shipping sounds very good for that pad.

It's exactly the same specs as what I have. Same as the Haipad M7X aswell. All these tablets (MID tablets) aare made by a company called URBETTER (http://www.urbetter.com/MID/index.asp) and basically are the same thing. Luckily I can read Chinese and on the chinese forums, this Dropad A8T is rooted already, here's the file:
What do you say about this? http://www.pandawill...ack-p52100.html It has 3G, WIFI, BT, etc
Got the file M7X_20111102-ROOT.rar from source http://www.99pad.com...-33246-1-1.html

also, how difficult would it be to add the hardware needed for 3g? simple as soldering in a chip/antenna? is his hardware available on any of those sites? Ive been trying to navigate those sites, but i can't read chinese unfortunately.

Regarding an active community, no there isn't one.
The hardware isn't available as a seperate "addon" unfortunately, I haven't busted open my pad yet to have a look at what 3G modem is inside. The hardware is basically the same if you omit the 3G modem, all this A8T should be is an A8 with anyone of the supported modems torn down and put inside.Therefore in theory, the A8/C8 ROMS should work

==Dropad A8T, Haipad M7X==
These are the same devices, they run Android 2.3.6 and seem very responsive.
* Download the file 20111102-ROOT.rar. (Note: I will upload somewhere else once I figure out how to do this)
* Unpack these files into the top level partition of an empty uSD card.
* Shut your tablet down
* Put the uSD card into your tablet
* Hold down the Power and Menu buttons at the same time
* The new system will be flashed.
==Getting the market to work==
Use root explorer (included in the ROM) to make the following changes to /system/build.prop
ro.build.tags=release-keys ro.sf.lcd_density=240 ro.build.fingerprint=samsung/SGH-T959V/SGH-T959V:2.3.6/GINGERBREAD/VUVKJ6:user/release-keys
Then follow the changes outlined elsewhere on slatedroid to clean the market cache and reboot. You should now be able to download skype and firefox from the market.
You can change the lcd_density back to something else (I use 180) but you will lose a lot of apps from the market

My understanding is that the genesis ROM will not work on this tablet yet. The Dropad A8T is identical to the HaiPad M7S -- after installing the rooted ROM described above, the splash screen is for the HaiPad. There appears to be some quite active development going on amongst Chinese users, however I can't read their forums .
Custom ROMS like Genesis and tsunami work on this tablet?
It would be great if someone with more posts than myself, could create a sub-forum of the CorTex A8 entitled "Dropad A8T/HaiPad M7S" (hint hint) as several users are mistakenly installing ROMs for the A8X and bricking their device.
