Could you please hook me up with the link to the update you're talking about and instructions on how to use it? Thanks in advance.

Default Please help with m7 instructions to bump up memory

Hello: could you please send me the instructions to bump up the memory for monster m7 tablet? I truly appreciate your help. Thank you!






QUOTE=mcfroah;49067608]I am not able to post outside links, since I am a newbie. I sent you a message with the instructions. I am working on posting 10 comments so I can put the instructions here.
feel free to share the instructions, as I volunteered to test them for Monster and take no credit. Obviously I am not responsible for anything that happens to your tablet, nor is XDA. But this is a fairly safe update. I installed it on 4 tablets with no issue. I should be getting another update to test in a couple weeks from Monster and will share it when I get it.
Hopefully someone will be able to figure out how to root it, so we can remove the bloatware. [/QUOTE]

Default Stock Firmware

Well i just got this tablet yesterday and now im reading all the bad reviews so im trying to decide if i should keep this tablet and root it then expand the internal hard drive space to 8gb or so like a few others. But then again it has other problems to it as well. Any ways.. i was just about to root my tablet using vroot ( its all set up and showning m7 ready to root.) but if i want to expand my hard drive do i first root then find a firmware and then use the steps linked to to expand it. or do i expand it first? and where are you guys getting this stock firmware from? one more question , do we have a way to back this up just incase i still dont like something about it do we have a way to back stock to return it back to walmart?> thanks for any help .. and yes i did read EVERY post and even some of your post kaiserII101 in your [ROM] adoli v1

Default hi

Hey guys! long time no see!

So I just came up on an update.img file which completely took off the nand flash partition, meaning the entire 16/32 storage is open for both apps & files =]
So it's almost as good as a Nexus 7.. except.. with poor engineering...
But I'll post links later.
You'll simply need to flash it using the RKBatch tool

Note that it NEEDS to be flashed using RK Batchtool.
If you try to apply a normal update, it'll corrupt the system.

& I'll need to take it out of my dropbox soon. Someone please grab the file and upload it onto a free server for everyone after i take it off. Thank you!

Default Flashing

I have the flash file, and RK Batchtool. Running Win8. How do I get the tablet into flashing mode? I tried the power/vol up... windows just says its unrecognizable. and repeatably says that.... am I doing anything wrong? What version of RK Batchtools do I need?

Thanks,

Dave

I'm curious: is it possible to completely get rid of "user" (aka "internal sdcard") partition? This "monster" works perfectly with 32GB microsd, so we don't need to waste important nand space...
If all I want to do is change the size of the userdata partition, is all I have to do is edit the parameter file appropriately, and the rebuild the update.img? (I have the RK firmware tools from Sergio Poverony), and the update.img stock v4 file.

You'd simply need to have the tablet completely off & then hold down the volume down button and plug the USB in.
