hi all
new to this android thing so please bear with me if i am getting things all muddled up but could really do with a few pointers
I used to be in the cable scene and have had some experience with xbox's ngages and various other devices

Any way story goes like this my friends son had a 7 inch android brought for christmas its a
7 inch softwinerEvb android version 4.0.4 baseband version 1.5 ,kernel version 3.0.8+ android3@linux#77 wed oct 24 08.50.44 cst2010 build number nuclear-evb-eng 4.0.4 Imm76d 20121026 test keys
the problems i am having with this is that the wifi keeps dropping out.....
now i have been looking into it an summised that it is a cheap chinese tab with not much support out there for it ,
i have discovered that the device is already rooted with a apx file called z4root i have also got the thing talking to a pc with a driver called ADB_Drivers_AllwinnerA10_32and64 so i can mess about with the file system and have also installed Root.Explorer.2.14.2 so i can look in the system files on the android (which to me look prettty much like the old black xboxs). I have a feeling that there is some kinda confrontation going on with the wifi card inside the device as sometimes it will pick the wifi up and work for half hour and then sometimes it will keep scanning and saying nothing is inm range and sometimes the wifi wont even turn on......now like i say i have been messing and looking at other android images to see the difference in this one. yesterday i replaced (obviously saving the original) a file called wpa_cli that was in system/bin/ with one from another android version and it seemed to work...whern i cold booted it back up it found the internet straight away and stayed on there for at least 45 minutes and then started doing what it done originally (playing up).... what i want to know is?

1. seen as the device is already rooted is there anyway i can put jelly bean on or ics and if i did get another version of android working would i have problems with the drivers.....

2. Is there anyway to quick fix it as the android on it seems to work ok except for the wifi issues....i have done all the tweekks people have suggested on here with the router and the wifi settings and stuff ... is there anyway to find the wifi driver on the device or config files and alter them so as to keep the wifi working....like i said when it works it works pretty reasonable but then it just stops working and it really is making me bang my head up the wall .......any help would be appreciated thanlks in advance

Ok so it took me 3 days from never touching an android to having to reflash one.... finally got livesuit to work and got into the system settings telling me whatthe tablet was......
it was an a13b sun5i (probably a clone) . so as live suit was workin i thought i would flash it with a stock a13 image off the net ... everything worked well except the wifi sound and touchscreen (basicaly i had messed it up lol) finaly after 4 hours trawling through the internet and several none touchscreen flashhes and numerous poorly android pictures i finally found the proper image for it although this one is a bit newer and so far touch wood it hasnnt had any wifi errors yet so fingers crossed on that one lol

anyway i found this site with a bundle of a13 roms on it and thought i would share
the site is ftp://173.248.176.164/A13_Factory_Firmware hope this helps you as it helped me

I have been searching the internet for weeks trying to find someone with this same tablet. I am having the same issues that you were with the WI-fi and now, I am totally lost. I am having so many issues with this that I am pulling my hair out. Could you please help. Well besides losing the internet, Now, It won't restart back to factory reset, it tells me that all my space is full on my internal storage and there is not on there at all, it say's that my SD card is damaged, I can't install no apps and it takes forever to come on. I have successfully installed the sdk program with a driver from the PDaNet. It seems to be reading OK, but I think I will get the one you say you have. I don't know how to get into bootloader to unlock it or do it needs it. I can get in to android system recovery but None of the buttons work. Please help. I would love to just put a new rom on like you did. Please help.

Hi, I purchased in Malaysia a tablet with exactly the same specs you mentioned. Not specific brand. It worked fine when I arrived at home. I purchased it as a Christmas gift, So I did not used for 2 - 3 weeks, when trying to use it again before I packed it for Xmas, it was not booting, it turns on, but the android OS appears to be "dead". I 'm looking for the firmare that could allow me to reboot the system. Looked to the link you posted, but ( forgive my ignorance) I was totally lost not knowing which one(s) I should use. I will really appreciate If you could give me a hint.
Best regards,
Yolanda de Saint Giles

Ps, the only difference I noticed with the specs you mentioned is that the kernel version in mine is Kernel Version: 3.0.8+ android3@Linux #34. Your indicates "Linus77"

hi bro, I used to had that hard reset problem. n the internal memory also gone. (my phone is running ics, n rooted..so, I have superuser and root explorer in it..) I accidently discovered a way to fix it. just delete folders in "/data/" in ur operating system using root explorer. then let the phone reboot itself.. I can't promise that it will fix it.. but u had nothing to lose..btw do it on ur own risk. good Luck!!
