If it is a 7" just follow the stuff for E3 on the ftp site....

Any of the different 7" versions are still E3s.

Don't follow the v1 or v2 instructions as they will be different. Whenever you are flashing, just read the readme file and do the stuff for E3
As far as flashing is concerned, I gotcha. But as far as info/tweaks/mods/updates - which sub-forum do I follow? There's a ZT-180 V1, ZT-180 V2 and ZT-180 7" - none of which are identical. Is the ZT-180 7" sub-forum (this one) the best one?

To tell you the truth I jump from forum to forum.... lol

Some stuff is applicable to all three, yet only posted in the v1 or v2 forum.

By the way, I just updated the version of Superuser from the Market and then used it's "check for updates" feature for su binary and it downloaded and installed the version "2.3.2-efgh" which is working fine and makes appear the permission request popup, which I think is more secure than grant root permission to every app which request it, without let the user to know.


EDIT: Of course I made the update with the tablet already rooted, but with the un-asking magicandroidapps su binary which you get when rooting with "do not install superuser".

I haven't heard of any fake 7" tablets, but if you unscrew the screws and pop off the back, you should see the word ZENITHINK on the green board, but I don't think it's neccessary, unless you are just curious.....

Which ROM did you flash? The 0613? Did you flash the 0603 ZT_E3.spl as suggested in the 0613 ROM thread's first post? Memory should be better after you flash the spl (take all neccessary precations - full charge of battery/plugged in with powercord/do not interupt the process once started (3 second process)......

Swapper2 - You can read through the v1 swap thread - http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/17916-swap-on-zt-180/

So then you did download the ZT_E3.spl file from the ftp separately and added it to your zt-update folder and pressed the square button in front when it prompted you to flash the spl?

I read somewhere that it tries to install / initiate MS Silverlight, which is the actual culprit.
Maybe I'm going crazy?
That's very possible. It's too bad though - that would make this tablet twice as useful in my opinion.

Also, welcome brother


Anyone still getting an awful high-pitched noise from the headphone jack? If I play a song/video at a fairly high volume it seems to drown out the whine, but any moment of silence and I can hear it. It's definitely quite terrible. The speakers are fine but not if I want to listen/watch something on the go. Ideas? Suggestions?
