Did you try these steps?[quote author=Mikeami link=topic=601.msg4988#msg4988 date=1275657121](Thanks to Willow for the initial instructions that I have expanded on)Please note before you start, that I tried this on a Windows 7 and also Vista pc and it failed to install the drivers. It also failed at the install point on an old XP machine that only had usb 1.0 ports. So you will need Windows XP with usb 2.0. ( also remember what your 'Settings' icon in android looks like, you will need this later)1a. Download the custom firmware. I used Willows at http://slatedroid.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=29 1b. Extract custom firmware (it's a zip file, so unzip it)2a. Power off Apad, by holding the front button for three seconds till the shutdown screen pops up. Select shut down (it might say power down). 2b. Wait for shutdown to complete. Switching the toggle switch too off, then put it back to the on position.3. While the device is still off, hold down the menu key (it's the left side of the button on the top if your holding it landscape) and plug the device into your computer via the lower usb port (again, if your holding it landscape) you will keep holding it till 4c4a. keep a hold on the menu button, Windows will ask you for drivers for this unknown usb device4b. Navigate it too the rk28usb-new folder in the update you unzipped earlier, this should install the device drivers.4c. once Windows recognizes the device, you can release the menu key.5. run RKandroidDM.exe found in the RKAndroidTool folder of the folder you unzipped. It should say Device found! (if it does not, repeat steps 3 and 4c6 click on the box next too the "New firmware Information" box and browse to the folder you unzipped, into the 'rockdev' folder and into the 'Image' folder there, you should find 'update' file.7. click the 'update' button and wait. It will take about 5 minutes to flash the new rom onto your device, once done a message on windows xp will indicate success, and your aPad will automatically start to boot to the new firmware, You can unplug the usb cable at this time. The initial boot takes much longer than usual (about 8 minutes) so just be patient.8. It will prompt you to calibrate the screen, do so.9. Everything will be in Chinese, so go to 'Settings' and scroll down to the 7th item in the list and click on it, then click on the first iten in that window, next select English. Now install whatever apps you want on your Android.[/quote]

And what happened? Please include details about which step did not work and what the exact error messages are. I have not tried to flash my aPad yet, because mine works pretty well out-of-the-box, but maybe someone else can help you once you have described the issue in more detail.I also read that Win7 64BIT will not work with the update software. You need to have Win7 32BIT and use WindowsXP compat mode to execute the firmware updater. This is only what I read, I have not used a Windows-based PC in many years - so again, maybe someone else has more experience with your issue. Good luck.
