Thumbs up D703.v2.3.3-Build.20120206

Hi,

I also went the way of flipside101 and it did flash OK, once I figured out the instructions supplied were lacking a critical step.

If you find yourself attempting this remember to add the m801_mtds to the flash process.

I will update with results once I have a play.

I can report thought that for me it is an enormous success. I can play angry birds and movies!
The purpose of this TAB is for my 4 year old son's travelling companion on long trips/flights.
It is essential to play low res movies and play angry birds or similar.

Tablet was 7" Kogan Agora (4GB) for $99.
Model KATBL07AND
Android version was 2.3.3
Kernel was 2.6.35.7

now it thinks it is M778 Tablet PC

yes add m801_mtds to the flash, you'll need to click dropdown box for all file types...

cwm5 from start of this or one of other threads flashes fine them use cwm to flash su

changed on the rom, not too big of an issue, you just end up with lots of devices in market that you dont have/use...

Went ahead and flashed my Kogan.

Took a little more than 10 minutes for me but back up and running with new firmware/CWM5 and super user installed.

Didn't attempt the change of device name so it thinks it is a M778 but at least it is all working so far.

Have had it sitting next to me in standby for the last 30 minutes and no screen flashes or odd power ups. Looks like the font sizes are slightly smaller by default which for my old man eyes is making me strain a bit.

Other wise pretty painless with my only minor gripe being the new boot logo looking even worse than the Kogan one.

Cheers for all the advice.

change lcd density to 200 this was the setting in stock rom currently its set at 160.

either edit build.prop manually or search lcd density in market. plenty of free apps will do it all for you..

Might have spoken to soon. My screen auto rotation does not appear to be working. It is ticked in display. Again this is only a minor thing as I tend to use my tablet in landscape but it might be worth looking out for.

Any thoughts on why it might not want to auto rotate?

Edit: Forgot to mention that I left my device on while I was at work, 8 hours later it still has half a battery so what ever was done to fix the screen issues looks to have extended the battery a lot

Not rotating in all apps or just in the launcher?
Could be the stock launchers default setting can't remember as i installed titanium and restored adw launcher ex among other things before I even played around...

Hello

I would first off like to say thanks you To all on this thread you made my ****ty 8" Kogan Agora into a nice wee tablet.

Thanks you

Installed Pc drivers from 1st post.
Rooted with super 1 click
Spent 2 and installed lcd density pro and used its Google play fix feature.
Using Es file manager deleted the phone APKs (still wakes, I solved this by using a toggle widget for flight mode, fling it into flightmode every time i whack the screen off)
Installed Go launcher and changed the theme, look etc.

All in all a nice wee tablet

Cheers again to all and to the main folks that have helped , many thanks.


Robb

ps - Kogans official support is completely pash !!



**** NOt solved still wakes but less frequent ! .lol

Rotation solved. Not sure if it is because I had it on USB for a bit or the multiple restarts I have done lately but screen is correctly rotating.

Cheers again for all the help, amazing what a difference it makes to the device.
