We had got a second-hand E-pad which according to the manual it came with, was supposed to have Windows 6 pre-loaded.
But it had Android on it instead. The problem with the Android OS, is that it is saying it is a phone, not a tablet, and it is very slow. And if not all, most services either are unavailable or crashes (force close button).
I am looking to get rid of Android and all other data on it and just have a new fresh install of Ubuntu on it.
I looked on the Ubuntu website, to find out how to install and got stuck at unlocking, and/or going into bootloader (power button + up + down buttons) it just boots back into Android.
I have looked into "About device". The Model number is a row of Squares.
- Firmware Version: 2.1-update1
- Baseband version: unknown
- Kernel Version: 188.8.131.52
- Build Number:
p7901a-eng 2.1-update1 ERE27 eng.wwang.20100826.112720 test-keys
Also from the Ubuntu Website, tapping the build number 7 times doesn't give me the Developer options for USB debugging.
I am totally stuck!
Also went through the manual download and install. There is not a "boot recovery". I can't find any way at all to either install it inside Android or anything!
Would going inside the tablet and changing anything hardware wise solve anything?
How would I completely wipe this device and start fresh?
