Yeah, that is definitely a Superpad tablet. The apk just can't recognize the as a cortex a8 because it is based on ARMv7 architecture.

This ROM has to be flashed connected to the PC right? I have the problem that my SuperPad is not recognized by my PC (Win7), it does nothing at all and the tablet does not even show up as unknown device, so i cannot choose the drivers i downloaded. Any suggestion to solve this?

USB works pretty weird in this tablet. Simply plug the usb in the TOP slot and reboot your device and it will work. But if you just plug in it won't work. Anyway if you want to recognize as a flash device hold the reset + power + menu button then release the reset button and wait till a new storage will come up. Than you can release the power + menu. In this mod you can start flashing.

Thanks for your answer. So if i understand right i put the flash tool and the downloaded rom (vortex.pak) in the same folder in my external sd card by coonecting the tablet via usb upper port. Then i make the 3 button combo and enter flash mode where i can start the flash tool and flash your rom. Is that correct?

Not exactly. You need don't need to put the flash tool on the external sd card, just on you computer. Run the flash tool, select the ini file depend on you got 512 or 1 gb memory and select the vortex flash tool. Plug the usb in the top usb part, do the 3 button combo and VDfu storage should pop up on your computer. This is 512mb for me... now you can start the flash in the flash tool.

Take a look at here:
http://www.apad.tv/apadforum/showthr...-System-Update

Just ignore the first part, that is for zip update.


Code:
Make sure the tablet is off.
Remove the external SD card.
Plug in the tablet using the TOP USB port.
Copy Vortex.pak to the folder that has the flash tool. The .pak and .ini files should be in the same folder.
Start the Flash tool.
this part needs four or five hands. Use a pen to hold in the Reset button at the SAME time hold in the POWER button and the MENU button. Release the RESET button after about five seconds. Keep the Power and Menu buttons pressed until you get New Hardware found and a new empty VDFu window pops up.
Release the Power and Menu buttons.
Start the flash tool. Menus are in Chinese.
Click the Lower Right button. The progress bar should fill in about 30%. If there are any error windows, just click the button the window.
The new blank VDFu window will close.
Important. DO NOT CLOSE the flash tlool.
Do the five hands step again to get the blank VDFu window.
The left radio button will be active. Select it.
Click the lower button on the right.
Several small windows will pop up. Just click the button in the windows to close them.
This process takes several minutes to complete. Do not interrupt the process. Do not close the flash tool.
The Progess bar will fill. Cllose the the flash tool.
Unplug the USB cable.
Press and hold the Reset button for 5 seconds.
Turn on the tablet.
You should see a firmware update take place.
Everything will be in Chinese. That is OK.
Slide the lock to open the main screen.
Select the settings icon.
Scroll down to the language icon A capital A
Press the top selection and select your language.

first report
The battery consumption is very high and about 70 % of it is due to no radio signal available. I switched now in settings data transfer off and will charge again the tablet to see the battery cunsumption afterwards.

The battery is not as good as in the 2.3 but this is a bug in the stock rom. ICS deep idle, not work at all, that is mean the battery goes down when the screen is of as fast as the screen is on. (except the blacklight of course). Recommended to shut down the tablet when you not plan to use it for a longer time. Sorry but this bug presented on all of the ICS rom for this tablet yet, and not fixed yet.
