Found interesting issue, how to get Viewsonic to fix?
I recently as the most of you, picked up a g-tablet to play and test out using android 2.2 stock installed on it. I found it at my local staples which they only had 3 in stock. All of my information I have gathered thus far is also comparing it to a motorola droid running stock android 2.2 and apps.
I used "appmonster" on the droid to back up all currently installed apps on my phone to its installed sd card. Then I plugged phone into pc, mounted it as storage for the computer and copied the .apk files to a temp folder on the pc. Then I copied them to a spare micro sdhc class 4 '4'gb card and put it in the tablet. Then I power tablet on from complete power off mode wait for it to boot, then used the included ES file explorer app to find the mounted sdcard2 folder and manually installed all my apps from my phone that all worked, to the tablet.
Of course with most of my apps from the phone they either work 100%, will work until a certain point or feature then force close, or not work at all and not install, run, or install or running it brings up a force close. Might compile a list later.
Anyhow quadrant the latest version std edition worked fine the first time it was ran after initial install, it completed all tests and gave me a score in the 1900's. After this initial completed run, now everytime I run it it will not do the first cpu 12 tests just everything afterwards, cannot figure out why.
What brings me to the issue is Quadrant when you click on system information under the apps main menu, it gives you alot of information! what caught my dam eye is the "REFRESH RATE". It is reporting the refresh rate at 50hz which is of course not USA standard. We are at 60hz or 60fps over here.
Now this information has to be true because it is noticeable watching a video file at 30fps using the built in video player (using the ES file explorer app, clicking the media video file and watching it). Now watch the same video file cappped at 30fps using rockplayer with hardware decoding. There is a difference between the apps watcing video files. The native default video app that comes with gtablet plays the file at either 25fps or 50fps. the rockplayer trys to play it correctly but you can see a difference with slower motion compared to faster motion with skippy playback on files that the tablet can handle playing.
Viewsonic needs to fix this issue for those in the USA tha thave tablets, or nothing will work right as far as video, media, flash, games and so forth. Wonder if the hackers or developers here know how to change that within the firmware or OS files.
One other thing is if your having problems installing all kinds of different apps that say failed and did not install, try plugging the tablet into the PC and mounting it as a usb storage device, this disables the sdcard built into the tablet and allows you to install apps by default to the first local location which is the 2gb of ram for applications instead of straight to the 16gb of sd memory. For some reason and a major bug a lot of apps want to install to the 2gb of ram but when the 16gb of ram which is the sd card is on, the apps get confused and quit before you can install.
IS there a way to uninstall all of the stock ui crap that came with it and get it back to basic android 2.2 stock without updating firmware or rooting?
