9. wait a few minutes for the device to boot up the first time
10. change to English
11. patch tipstir patch – cannot download
after the upgrade, is the device still rooted?
is the device still have Google Market?
Done flashing. Questions:
1. The device has problems with rooting:
– z4root does not work
– can’t obtain root access:
In Terminal Emulator, when I type su, I get an error:
su: uid 10045 not allowed to su
– apps fail to obtain root access, such as ROM Toolbox Pro, Busybox
– su binary outdated and SU Binary Updater fails to upgrade
2. Recovery does not have backup/restore option
– don’t know if it is ClockworkMod recovery. it only shows:
Android system recovery <3e>
    but the important thing is that it does not have backup/restore options
3. Model number
  – Model number shows Gpad701.
    I think this is what makes Google Play refuses to install a number of apps saying the apps are not compatible
Android system recovery utility
reboot system now
apply update from sdcard
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition
change first logo

Edit: (3/22/2013)
Solutions for previous 3 problems.
1. The device has problems with rooting
Solution: I tried SuperOneClick, it works! I verified this with Terminal Emulator and ES File Manager.
2. Recovery does not have backup/restore option
Solution: Need to install CWM. I managed to install CWM-based Recovery v5.0.2.7 using <3e> recovery
3. Model number
Solution: not a problem, it is just a Gpad701 rom and it seems working fine on MID7015A.

I restored this mod from the later 2.3.7 because this mod plays HD video smoothly with stock player and BSPlayer because of its hardware accelerator works while the cm7 mod not.
