Anyone care to give me a hand? I have a ZT180 running 101020, and I only have access to a laptop running Windows 7 64 bit. Is there any way I can flash a new ROM? I'd love to use it more, but it's just painful to use with the constant force closes, and the fact that the screen never fully turns off.

Am I SOL?

Yes, you can flash 20110324 without the need to use Windows (except to copy the files) just from the micro-SD card.

Are these flash image files laid out in a standard format or are they in a format / layout unique to the ZT-180?

Yes, the zImages are for the v1 (update of 0324). If you go to Dbank, it shows a new file (no _qimei anymore). The only difference I saw was the zImages, so only uploaded them. Think someone reported it's only a fix for the calibration issue.

The 0324 ROM seems to work ok for me, better than the 0120, just couldn't get the Youtube update from market to work, so went back to the stock one, but it plays in HQ (if you select that option) and full screen (status bar autocloses) so it's fine for me. Just wonder why the Youtube 2.1.6 won't work on this ROM? Also, some pictures seem to have a blue washed out look, but not all of them.

Hi,
I am just not sure how should I reflash with the "0328 zImage"?
I think I need to copy the "0328 zImage" to the "0324 ZT-update" folder and as usual: pressing the left side of function key at the same time when I turning on the tablet. Am I right?
Will I lost any datas or apps?

Something other... of course I broke the lan connector yesterday. Grrr! I will try to glue it, pffff!
Wifi works a bit hectic but I can say all right now, surprisingly the lan by cable was never worked for me.

My last issue is that my screen's backlite is half-working.
The problem appears in the left upper area. Sometimes lights, sometimes dead, sometimes blinking.
If I screwing or pushing the whole case then the lights come back or fully goes away at that area.
I think (or hope) it is not lost because sometimes works.
What should I check or fix or repair?

The wiki says I need 1220 or later. I tried following the instructions but my tablet just boots straight to android. I dont think I can flash through this method, or maybe I' missing something...

Are there any workarounds for windows 7 64 bit users yet?

Oops. My bad, you wrote "1020" and I read "0120". In that case you need to use the flash tool. If you cannot do it from 64 bit and have no access to some 32 bit machine then may be you can install a 32 bit system on a VirtualBox virtual machine and try from there.

Hmm, or should I remove all the files from the ZT-update folder except the only NEW zImage one?
