Root Flytouch3 (Odys Xtense) firmware upgrade


Jul 23, 2013
Hi all!

I have the following tablet:
Model Number: ODYS Xtense
Android Version: v2.2 2011-08-01(401111)
Kernel version:
Build number: FRF85B

on the back it has a label "ODYS Xtense"

side: 2USB, 2SD, 1HDMI, headphones, ehternet and 9V.

I want to upgrade the firmware to a android 2.3 version (because there is an app I want to run which needs v2.3)

I have downloaded Tim6a, put it on a formated sd card and reboot the tablet: boots like normal, no firmware upgrade. Have tried to press "Home" + "back" + "power", then I get the message it is upgrading, but seems like it only loads the original firmware and not the one I put on the SD card.

have tried the following frmware:
- www_apad_tv-20111001_Tim6a
- www_apad_tv-FT3-Pre-installed-Firmware-0529-no-official-release
- original superpad rom (5files, WinHex for bootable SD card)

but no succes.

Can anyone tell me the procedure for upgrading firmware and which firmware should I use for my tablet?

Thanks in advance!
