My ePad gets the message "demo version has expired" in the center of the screen no matter what I do. Look at the video to see what I mean. I tried the firmware Slatedroid1.3-flytouch-edition V2, but it doesn't fix it. I also tried reverting to the stock 1.7.4 firmware to no avail. 1.8.2 also doesn't fix it. System reset also doesn't work. Help!

Keep getting demo version has expired message box. Google marketplace and Youtube do not work. Using firmware Slatedroid1.3-flytouch-edition V2. Tried all sorts of firmwares without luck. Does anyone have a link to 1.7.2 firmware?
May I know how long you have own this epad device before you receive the "Demo Version Has Expired"?

test thisThis should work with M001 and M70003Fo those who have the "demo purpose only" with 1.7.2 and upgrade to 1.7.4 they get the Huggly "demo version has expired" and nothing you can do but go back to 1.7.2 if it was possible.Now there is a solution:Take the 1.7.4 Rom and replace /system/lib/libui.so by the one from 1.7.2reboot and Voila!You get the "demo purpose only" but no more this Huggly "demo version has expired" that make the device unuasable.Now if someone has 1.7.1 it would be great to test if this library incorporate the wifi board check.Another point for those programing gurus, it would be nice to try to see if in libui.so you could desactivate the small message and problem will definitely be solvedRapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy FilehostingMD5: A41C770D9BD5904BF81F48A450856147Thanks enotar.

Take the 1.7.4 Rom and replace /system/lib/libui.so by the one from 1.7.2Would appreciate if you can provide step by step instructions especially this libui.so file is in the android_fs.tar file. If I understand correctly, you would need to untar and overwrite the file and need to tar it back before you can upgrade the firmware.

Ok I tried what torranee suggested, but I don't have the M001 and M70003, so maybe that's why it didn't work. I have the epad.It booted about 90% of the way and got stuck at a black screen with "demo purpose only" in the upper left. The touch screen was also unresponsive. It just blinks "demo purpose only" every minute or so until I force shutdown by holding the power button. It never booted into the android operating system. Luckily I was able to restore the original 1.7.4 firmware.

Method should work on all devices that have this problem as it is software stuff so this libui.so is the only one that has the "Demo version Expired"My M70003 is boken for now but as soon as I get it up and running I will look for library that give the "Demo Purpose Only".

I will try this again, but the rapidshare link to download libui.so is broken. Can you reupload the libui.so file? Thanks.

I have a partial fix that will remove the "demo version has expired" message in the center of the screen. You'll still get a "demo purpose only" message in the upper left corner of the screen, but now it is completely usable! Use 1.7.2 firmware from this link, script_generic_epad_1.7.2.rar. Do not change the libui.so file! Just use it the way it is. This worked on my ePad that has a blank back. My ePad originally came loaded with 1.7.4 firmware. Everything works fine and all the buttons work. If you've got a M70003 or a Flytouch branded tablet, it could screw it up so I take no responsibility if you brick it.

If u have happen to over come this matter, please let me know. Now, I have to live with 1.7.2

I would strongly advise not to change the libui.so file if you have an "ePad" brand. It did not work for me at all. Please do not do it. I would advise to just revert back to an earlier release firmware like 1.7.2 posted earlier in this thread. Janez, you should make a new thread, someone may be able to assist you quicker. I do not know what else you can do besides loading up the original firmware on the micosd card and start the flash over...
