Install
=====================================================================================
Disclaimer: I take no responsibility if this file bricks your ZT-282, breaks your toaster, makes you pregnant, or kills your neighbors.

Download and extract the folder zt-update to the root of the sd card
Turn off the tablet and insert sd card
Turn the tablet on by pressing the camera button and the power button at the same time
Follow the on screen instructions, it may ask to press the camera button to update the spl
On first boot, select the 2nd option and it will start the initial setup

Bugs
=====================================================================================
On first install and boot it will ask what task you want to perform. Choose the 2nd option. (This is a bug with the factory rom. I'm still trying to pinpoint what's causing this.)
Because the 3g data and phone services are disabled, opening settings and choosing sound will cause settings to crash. (To change the notification sound: Set hw.nophone to false in build.prop, reboot, change the notification sound, set hw.nophone back to true and reboot)
If anything else shows up, please let me know!

It was not the ROM, but my sdcard with incorrect formatting.
I tested with another sdcard and updated.
So again I put my sdcard patriot 16gb class 10 formatting with "Allocation unit size" as default and workings great.

Thanks for the ROM, very smooth, very fast.

I flashed this ROM, it appeared to go through the complete installation process, then it rebooted and I just get get a blank screen. Reset the tablet and tried to boot again and still just the blank screen.

Tried reflashing the ROM, exactly the same thing happens.

Thanks, that did the trick. Maybe it would be a good idea for ROM-makers to include those files in future just in case?

Thanks also to Justin for the ROM, first impressions are very good!
Good call, I thought I found the issue in the rom itself causing that black screen stuff but I guess not. I will update the file when I get home.

EDIT: @omarahum, is there any reason this is causing issues with some people and not others?

I really have no idea....

The only thing I can think of is that since the spl and logo files are in the same area on the nand, but not on any "seen" partition, that flashing the spl alone may be corrupting the logo files that are stored on the tablet and the tablet gets stuck, so if you flash both the spl and logo files, nothing gets corrupted and the tablet is able to boot..... Just a guess....

Just out of curiosity, what did you think was causing it, and what did you think the possible solution would be?

I found a folder with the battery images and there were duplicate files some how. ex: 0.jpg, 0.jpg, 1.jpg, 1.jpg, ect. I have no idea how they made a zip with dup files. I could not edit the folder, only delete it. I replaced it with the folder from the last update. I thought that was causing the corruption but it seems that's not it.
