I just ordered the Z101 (not delivered yet, so I don't know yet which ROM will be installed).

However, there seems to be no ROM update for this model on the official website. Is the "Z102 20110930 ROM" likely to work (the specs between the Z101 and Z102 are quite similar, except the embedded GPS for the Z102) or should I use another Cortex A9 ROM, such as the C91?

Thanks for any help...

Well the C91 has a capacitive screen, and the Z101 & Z102 have multi touch resistive, so you probably shouldn't use the C91 ROM (plus there's a bunch of different hardware inside the tablets). I would thing the Z102's would be most compatible with the Z101, but i wouldn't advise using a ROM that wasn't specifically made for your tablet. I'd probably wait till you get the tablet, and then see if there is ROM download for it. If there isn't, I'd email atp_uestc and ask when one would become available.....

Thanks a lot for this excellent advice, omarahum. I will definitely follow your idea.

BTW, I've ordered both the C91 (for me ;-) and the Z101 (for a gift), so I should be able to compare the installed ROMs, and search for the differences in the corresponding filesystems. Just waiting for my devices that should be somewhere between China and France...

Cool....

Actually, I believe all the ZT-280's use the same android system image/tar file. Just everything else is different for each model (spl, boot, kernel etc.)...

So you are getting a C91 also, nice. I wonder if you will be getting the updated capactive screen (5 or 10 point multi-touch) versus the old one (what I have, only 2 point multi touch). I am not even sure that they are selling the newer version yet, atp only said they were going to be updated without a change in the price for the C91....

When you do get your tablets, do you think you can post in the C91 vendor thread where you bought it from and if you got a real Zenithink C91? Seems most people are getting fakes, having a resistive screen rather than capacitive and not having the usb port for the RJ-45 adapter for ethernet support. Thanks...

I saw that too... quite scary
I bought my tablets at "hongkongeek.com" which appears to be a Hongkong-to-Paris importator for high-tech stuff (but I guess they could ship elsewhere). The vendor has quite good evaluation in French user forums, so let's knock on the wood. I'll post the result as soon as I got my stuff.

Hi
you have the Z102 model it should be on the ARM7V which makes it a CORTEX A9 and it gives you a chip capable of 800MHZ to 1700MHZ which is the same chip in the iphone3 and ipad 1 models whats your firmware in settings about Device as there supposed to be still running 2.2

All the Official Zenithink ROMs can be found on their Download page - http://www.zenithink.com/Enews_92.html

I believe the current one for the Z102 is the 20111018 Froyo ROM - http://www.zenithink.com/Eshownews_234.html

Thx omarahum, i have downloaded and tried Z102, 20111018 Froyo ROM
It is slightly different from what i had, it is working but i think what i had was newer
Hi
Jazz
i think you have the same firmware as me 20111018 just looks a little different more to do with your homescreen,as they are 3 different one's,just i plain old prolauncher screen then 2 customised
ones,they should be moving up to 2.3 OS, i was told it was going to be Friday last week but not on Zenithink website as yet

There were a couple of Apps that came with mine, which is different from what Zenithink have for the Z102 (20111018)

Also the Kernal i had was 2.6.34 [email protected]#1961, and now its 2.6.34 [email protected]#1955
Little diff's here and there, wish i had of backed it up first
Hi
Jazz tell me with these new kernels can you turn wifi off and on with the switch on top of tablet?
also can you turn gps off and on in security in settings
i have the very 1st kernel on mine and gps starts automatic when using co-pilot and can only turn off when tablet turns off
and on wifi its into settings and wifi to turn off and on instead of switch on top of tablet
what apps have you got missing??????????????

Ooops, maybe I was wrong. Not only did they remove the ROM, but they removed the Z101 from the products page too! Does that mean they are no longer making and supporting the Z101?
