Hi omarahumAs I understand it, the ZT-280's are the first/original version (with 512MB RAM) and the ZT-282's are the Upgrade versions (with 1GB RAM and updated CPU)....
I don't believe there are any custom ROMs available for the Resistive screened Zenithink Tablets.... You may need to piece-meal toghether one for yourself, as the Android images are the same for all the Zenithink tablets (system.zt280.tar.bz and data.zt280.tar.bz), but since the ZT-282 Z102 Upgrade (K1_1n) tablet has a resistive screen and has an internal GPS, the system.patxh.zt280.tar.bz and media.zt280.tar.bz files are differnt for your your tablet.... Seems there are only custom ROMs being made for the ZT-282 C91 Upgrade, but I think all of them combined the system.patch.zt280.tar.bz file into the system.z280.tar.bz file, so i don't think it would be a good idea to try them unless you know what you are doing.....Hi omarahum
I'm new to this forum and am not to sure on the rules to posting when and where. Reading through this web site, your posts are the only ones i vaguely understand so I have come to you first for help.
Believe it or not it took me a while to find out what table I have brought and I believe it to be the Zenithink ZT-282-102 (very confusing model numbering i think you would agree)
My question is, is there a step by step dummies guide on how to find and install custom roms, or how to overclock the machine. Any help would be much appreciated. Maybe you could make a new thread for noob root explorers like me
Look forward to hearing from you
p.s when I say dummies guide I mean pictures would be good lol
Which kernel did you use and a what point does it stop booting?So this is what I did, I downloaded the ZT282.kernel,deleted everything off my SD card from my phone, created a folder called "zt-update" placed the kernel in there and booted it up as the video said...it came up with image updated(or something along those line) and now its wont boot up at all....any ideas where I,m going wrong?
Sorry, I do not understand what you mean...I do not want to flash new kernel. Can I boot once custom kernel? How can I load *.ko kernel modules to ICS?

Yes thas working now thanks, i was really hoping 1gz would work but o wellWhich kernel did you use and a what point does it stop booting?
If you used the 1GHz one, it may be too fast for your tablet, try the 900MHz one then...
No, they are two different names refering to the same thing, one is the ARM Architecture name and one is the ARM Core name....Yes thas working now thanks, i was really hoping 1gz would work but o well
Another quick question, i noticed when checking what the processor was running at, it displayed that it was using a an armV7 something or other not a cortex A9 like it should have is this a result of changing the kernal?
Hi Delfer,Yes! Absolutely right! Thank you!
ZT180_K0_3m_Z102_Android4.0_0210_V2.5I hate to post off topic, but I'm new here and can't start a new topic. So here goes:
When I bought my tablet about 6 months agoI did so partly because it had 2 USB ports, (Purchased new off of ###########). I found out that one USB port didn't work and Zenithink said there would be a firmware upgrade that would correct this and they would notify me when it was available. Never happened.
I can't make out what the sticker says on it, but the version.txt file says:
Generally speaking, this thing works ok, but its glitchy at times with occasional freeze up's and things like my browser sometimes crashing can be annoying. I know there is a new ROM availabe which may, or may not fix the issues, but I'm wondering if I shouldn't hold out for an Android 4.1 version? Maybe someone will find a bin file for the ROM and convert it to source to play with?
Any ideas on how to get my tablet more functional would be appreciated.
Meson M1 means it's a ZT-280... The M3's are the ZT-282's... (and the MX's are the ZT-283's....)...Atten: Omarahum
I've since installed an app called: Deviceinfo which reports my screen size as 7 inches, (when it's actually supposed to be 10.2 inch), and the CPU seems to be a
Amlogic ril 2.0 GSM
Arm v7 rev 1 (v71)
Meson M1 8727 M SZ Rev 0020
The app I used could be easier to see if the white characters didn't have a design behind them, but I found it useful.
