I'd love any info on this too. Disgo Tablet 6000 has a rather locked down version of Android that doesn't even have Marketplace nor Facebook. I like it but it's currently useless until you add in some apk's.

I'm therefore willing to experiment a bit with loading roms onto it. Done so on my Hero but would need a few pointers on this one as I go.

Ive updated my rom to 2.2 using a rom for the sylvania tablet - but have lost root access and considering downgrading - I aslo have a running android market but no paid apps (looking into how to enable this)

Its a good cheap device - any input greatly recieved

I downgraded my rom to 2.1 and got root back!! YAY!! Im trying out getting android market on it tonight and seeing if I can get apps2sd working.

Id love to know how to build roms....but...there is no recovery image just the option to install from sd or via the OTG port.

Rom building I have no clue with and unlike regular android which can utilise the recovery process and a rom in zip form you need special drivers and program to push it to the device (if doing it via the otg port) Similar to the RUU for winmo.

The file extension is IUS - I have the files for the 2.1 update and 2.2 and uide if anyone is interested?
Plus Ill post back if I get market working.

I've been trying to update a disgo (hwver=12.2.0.5) to froyo but have no idea which of the ius files are safe to flash , i did flash disgo_12.2.0.5.1.4.ius but it seems to be exactly the same as i had already

Recently posted at androidtablets.net, disgo (my_disgo) UK on Twitter & "Should I get one?"

No "official" 2.2 Froyo, however some newly purchased tablets are pre-loaded with 2.2 but it seems to have issues. Others, as noted above, have manually updated using the Sylvania files which seems to be the same as Disgo is doing causing issues.

17 Mar - currently working on a 2.2 update & hopefully it will be released in April with our Disgo Tablet 8000 10.1 Android 2.2 Tablet

27 Apr - Still experiencing technical difficulty at the moment. Sorry for the delay, we are working on trying to find a solution!

27 May - Sorry no update yet!

16 Jun - Hi Sorry for the late reply! The new update is expected hopefully at the start of July!
This string of Tweet's is telling, the distributors (Disgo, Sylvania "Digital Gadgets", and others) are having issues with infoTMIC delivering working firmware for these tablets.

Disgo 6000 owners hang in there you may get an update soon.

Since the Disgo 6000 is similar to the 7" Sylvania's tablets, this post, in response to Should I get one? in the Sylvania Tablets forum at adroidtablets.net, maybe applicable.

Choppah, use the three finger salute.

Hold a finger on the screen, keep the menu button pushed in, and hold the power button. Keep all three fingers on until you see text, then remove all fingers and push the menu button once.

You're welcome

Hi all, know this thread has been quiet from quite a long time but.... I have exactly the same problem as choppah When you switch it on it sticks at the
" Disgo tablet 6000RL
Finger touch
Stylus Free"
Boot screen

I have been given the tablet to try and "fix".... I have tried the 3 finger boot to recovery however i then get "Getting recovery Image" "No recovery image found, try recover from SD."

As you may be aware the usb's on the sides are both HOST apparently the one nearest the HDMI port is the OTG port but when i try and connect it to my pc neither device recognises the other. I read somewhere that you needed to press both the power and menu buttons and i did that to no avail.....

I would love to just get the thing working optimally by installing a Stock ROM, from all my searching i believe that there is no stock for this device but have also found it may be possible to install a sylvania rom. As i have never had this tablet boot up and i have not got any box\instructions, plus there is no serial number on the back only model etc i have no idea which sylvania rom would be safe to install and if this could be done by sdcard at all?

Any and all help/advice welcome
