I was browsing the Gemei G9 website and found the direct download for what should be this firmware.
I have not tested this firmware download directly, but believe it should be the same and work fine.

2nd BIG THANKS to BlueEyes for assistance with Driver files
Hello MrTasselhof, about the usb drivers. the ones you provided didnt work. neither did the ones in the firmware. but i found these:
(scroll down to "GoldBond drivers have worked from some...")
might be my 64bit Windows 7 being the reason that yours didnt work. you might want to add this download link so ppl know what to do when
they run into the same problem i did :-)
I have downloaded the above files and slightly reworked them.
I also reuploaded them to AndroidTabletFirmware.com (ATF) which is a SlateDroid sister site created by MP4! - THANKS!
- this site allows firmwares to be posted and shared without expiring download links!

It has also been suggested that using a download assistant type program can prevent corruption/timeout issues with AndroidTabletFirmware.com:
Here is a basic on as a suggestion/try: Download.com - Internet Download Manager
If you are currently using the MOMO11 bird Firmware:
- I would advise selecting the format option and start fresh for the device.
Here are Install Instructions:
1.) Download the File
2.) Extract the folder inside the .RAR file
3.) Connect your tablet with the USB cable and verify that it is discovered and installed on your system.
a.) Right click on My Computer
b.) Left click on Manage
c.) Left click on Device Manager
d.) Verify that the device is installed or that you don't have an Yellow Exclamation mark devices.
5.) Right click on the LiveSuite.exe and run as Administrator
6.) Click the first button in LiveSuite and browse to the firmware .IMG
7.) Hold the Volume + button while plugging in the USB cable
8.) Press the power button 6 to 10 times until the system discovers the device and LiveSuite prompts you
9.) Choose whether you want to format the device or just upgrade the device
10.) Let the magic happen
11.) Tablet should reboot itself when the update is completed
After installation, please follow these directions to get it switched over to English.
1) Hit the blue button in the first screen that comes up
2) Go to Settings --> Icon with the A --> Click the top field/option and set the language
3) In the same language area, change the default keyboard to English (US) - Android Keyboard
4) Go to Settings --> Apps: Click on and uninstall anything you don't want/need under Downloaded
5) Go to All and do the same only hitting disable this time (basically anything with Chinese Characters and QQ etc..)
There is a special SuperScript I developed that contains ROOT, Market, Build.Prop, & Tweaks for the Stock firmware.
- [Script] - Gemei G9 - STOCK - Tasselhof - ROOT, Market, Build.Prop & Tweaks SuperScript
- PLEASE NOTE -
This firmware does not have the Android Market app pre-installed.
It can be easily added using my script though and it works fine after.
The script was original developed for the Transformer tablet and ICS... I have found that it works on various devices with ICS when my own personal script fails.
- Download Link: AndroidTabletFirmware.com - MOMO11bird-Firmware-GemeiG9-SpecialRoot-ICS.rar
1) Download the File
2) Extract the contents to a folder
3) Connect your tablet to the PC with USB
4) Click on runme.bat
The system will reboot a couple times.
Well it turns out that this was Baseband version 4.10 from 21020323 which I already had
I'll try to work with it and get Flash working.
I got flash working by doing the following. (You will need root access)
Open Settings --> Apps
Click on All and force stop and disable the Adobe Flash.
Open up ES File Explorer and make sure you have enabled System level (root) access in the settings.
Then browse to /system/app and delete the Adobe Flash in there.
Open up the Market and download the latest Flash.
You may also want to download Dolphin Browser HD or Opera Browser (generally better flash support)
Now reboot the tablet.
Open either browser and change the settings to enable Flash and Desktop view mode.
You should now be good to go.
Hope that Helps!
Enjoy your new OS!
took me longer than expected, here is the new firmware :-)
