I bought a chinese cheap tablet.
Android version: 4.0.3
Kernel 3.0.8 wineulo@Monia-Server #15
And the next day that crap stop working. There was a error message. "unfortunately the process android.process.acore has stopped" and so on with the applications. Some days worked, some days didn't, even the keyboard stopped working. First i did, was to reset factory data on settings. it didn't work. then turn it on with the power button + Vol+. and select the 1 option. Erase user data. Didn't work as i expected, the problem went on. So i started to read on internet and after searching for a week i followed the instructions provided here
/* I can not place the link here because it says im new, so search in youtube : gs701b " and the video with the name "Tablet PC Q8, gs701b, MIPS, ATM 7013, not Allwinner A13" thats the one */
I downloaded that file and did what he said.
Some people says that method does not work and their touch screens got locked, as you can read on the video comments. I think its because their models weren't the same.
So i did it with my gs701b and everything went perfectly. I just put that file(extracted) on the recently formated MicroSD, rebooted it with power button and vol+ pressed, selected option 3: upgrade firmware from SD and it took a few minutes, no longer than 5. Now apps work fine and the touch screen didnt screw up. I hope it helps someone as this forum and the video did it.
Sorry about my english. I speak spanish.
PS: after i did it, the android version is still the same. 4.0.3
Can i downgrade it to android 2.3 ? i think it would become faster. Thanks
