EXCLUSIVE: Viewsonic Viewpad 10e ROM update

8 posts in this topic

I'm excited to present an exclusive leak of the forthcoming Viewsonic Viewpad 10e ROM update.

Changes in the new firmware (dated 02/12/11) include:

  • Reduce auto self start when the unit is in power off mode.

  • Improve TP auto calibration / data table.

  • Improve soft function key stuck issue.

  • Double verify all preinstalled apps are free of system lock or force close issues.

  • ViewScene Performance improved

The key change in the release is improved performance, which I know 10e owners will be very appreciative of! :)

The update can be found here - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid) and a PDF detailing the upgrade process is also available.

according to viewsonic london the it seems like the MPTool is an engineering only software tool and they wont release it ;-(

The kind man on the phone offered to do a warranty based pick up, repair and return ! hmmm....

So was this package supposed to actually do something? I downloaded it, applied it (twice, making sure that I did the erase step), rebooted and

Nothing, no difference, no changes. I started with Viewsonics Android 2.3 and ended up with the same. Good if I want to do a factory reset but not much cop for an upgrade. Or perhaps that was just a bug fix?Performance doesn't seem to have changed much either.

And Zasha? The MPTool is in the downloaded package. It's what you use to apply the fix.
