firmware from 16-Jan-2013

http://kuai.xunlei.com/d/POSyBwPbAQCCpPdQc63

REMEMBER RENAME CHINA CHARACTERS OF NAMES FOLDER AND FIRMWARE
TO YOUR PC LANGUAGE BECAUSE CAN GIVE ERROR

Install the included PhoenixSuitPacket_v1.0.4.msi .
Close any Antivirus/antimalware on computer .
Start the PhoenixSuit and be update to 1.0.5 [ english version ]
After successfully update start again Antivirus/antimalware services





For those of you whose PC cant detect the tablet when you want to update the rom using the phoenix suit that came with the firmware zip file:- actually there is a WORD doc as well as a PDF help file(this is accessed when you click on "help" in the phoenix suite itself. Both files are in chinese but there a easy to understand step by step picture guide.

Basically:
1) install the phoenix suit application. It will install USB drivers needed.
2) when that is done, run the phoenix suite application. You can change the language from Chinese to English.
3) Select the rom img file. click the update/install button.
4) Here is where it gets tricky - the included instructions say to turn off your tablet, hold the volume up button, connect the tablet to your pc via usb, press the power button about 10 times. But for me, instead of holding the volume button, I need to hold the "return/back" button next to the volume button instead.
5) If done correctly, windows will detect your V99, install the usb drivers if needed then update the rom.
6) You'll see a progress bar in phoenix suite. When its completed, your tablet will auto reboot.
7) when I tried to update the first time. the program bar stopped at 11% and there was no respond. I just closed the program, unplugged the usb - hold the v99's power button for about 10 sec or more for it to sort of hard reset - you heard a "pop" sound on the speaker or see the screen flash. Then repeat step 3 above.

The tablet is pretty good for its price. One thing to note, the 23 Jan 2013 firmware screws up the auto rotate. if you set auto-rotate "off" it will always go into landscape mode. Also wifi strength on this tablet is poor. Hope the next firmware release fixes this.
IF HAVE PROBLEMS WITH PHOENIX TRY THIS
1.Remove phoenix completly ( you can use the Revo Uninstaller for best results ).
2.Reboot .
3.Download the Google Android Usb drivers [ http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html#WinUsbDriver ] and install it .
4.Stop all antivirus - antimalware servises .
5.Install the phoenix again ( if display an error in android drivers dont worry ).
6.Start phoenix and perfom update to 1.0.5 .
7.When finish rebbot again .
8.Stop all antivirus - antimalware servises again
9.Now start the update procedure .

first of all, hi everyone

I am sure thats must be one way to put the firmware correctly, but i have missed that correctly way.

My tablet dont want to enter in adb mode, any help?

I turn off the tablet, launch the phoenix suit 1.06 in windows 7 x64, selec the firmware of the day 23 or 30, and then, i press the back return botton, connect the tablet and push 10 times the power botton, and nothing happens.
Any sugerence?

It is the new full firmware. Looks like they finished up from their beta. At least sufficiently to release a new version
