It happened even to me one time.
Just open it and push down the screen, it should work


Thanks, but how do I open it up? Tried running a credit card around the edges but not all of them pop open.

Having trouble getting the 3G working on my new M3. Just updated the firmware, thought that might help, but it still can't seem to detect my sim card. Anyone know if it needs to be a micro sim card, or another size, to fit, because it doesn't seem to sit flush in the slot as a full size card... Any ideas or suggestions?

I'm using a standard sim card without any problem



A NEW official FIRMWARE CAME OUT LATELY:

Worked out which way it goes in from an old video of the M2's 3G modem, discovered that the mechanism in the modem was just bit stiff, though it seems to be loosening up the more I use it. Been running the M3 with updated firmware for about a week now without any other problems to speak of. It's testing high in Antutu, finding most apps in Google store, and running smoothly. Love it. :)

Truthfully, I flashed Pipo's updated firmware the day that I got it, so I don't really have a comparison. I can happily report, however, that I have suffered none of the reported glitches or problems I've read about on the forums, no SD card problems, no touchscreen problems, no serious WiFi connectivity problems (knock on wood). I have had the apps on my SD card drop from the launcher once or twice, after some serious downloading and data transfer, but nothing a system shut down and reset couldn't fix. I understand people's trepidation about investing in a tablet with reported issues, but I will say that the M3's pretty nifty when you get it going, and seems to be compatible with most apps and games I run on it.

I agree as well, I just got mine a couple of days ago so that isn't really a long time to properly review it, however so far I'm very impressed with what I have. I've yet to try it on one of the big SD cards which seem to be the ones people have trouble with, however. The WiFi however is not that great, I do experience disconnects every now & then if I'm in another room from the router, but these issues have already been reported and there is a fix I intend to try later.

I've tried decontaminated & the new firmware and they both seem to work fine, installation process was pretty straight forward, I've yet to test 3G however. Some sites are reporting that there is a hidden feature on jelly bean, multi-user support. I've been unable to activate it yet with either firmwares.

I'm going crazy trying to identify the PCB version of my tablet.

Is it safe to identify only with the serial number of the tablet?

I believe that number is modifiable from the build.prop, so I guess no.

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knows if I can use this tablet as an external monitor? Ive read articles that say you can and some that say you cant.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Has anyone has any problems with the camera not working? I have installed the new firmware, but when I try to access the camera it says "unfortunately, camera has stopped"

Any hints??

Thanks,

~TBhaggs
