Shaking down android 2.2(Arm11/256 mB, 1 ghz) ? SYNET7LP, SYTAB7WX

The oldest android 2.2(4 gB) has no usb port or hdmi connection(LCD 800x480). But it has micro SD slot to add flash memory for data storage(max 32 gB).

Software has a minimum of items on menu, so you have to switch functions by the back button(history).

Once you obtain one, you do clock setting. Location setting, and wifi(b/g) network connection, so that the minute you turn it on, you get all those information right after wifi is connected.

Browser speed dial is bookmarks(google search) to connect to new websites you want.

Keyboard on the screen is activated by touching input area on the touch screen. it has ?123 to switch ABC ti 123 keys. Push capital key to type capital letters. delete is backspace and go is enter. Its nice once you are familiar with it.

This will get you to use the tablet after 1,600 mAh battery is  fully charged(9v 1.5A) to last 6 hours..

Touch screen is very fragile, can not be dropped(screen cracked broken) or scratched(connections broken). Careful.

Facebook can be displayed at high resolution in partial page, to see better, move the page with touch.

Google need screen keyboard by touching the input area..

My Yahoo need log-in to get your webpage or email.

Small screen size makes webpage small.

There are no android 2.2 upgrade to be downloaded since its internet cloud computing.

Adding applications from SAM 4.0 app store have to beware not all applications are for android 2.2 some are for phones only.

Online banking has wifi wpa2-psk encryption, then bank has video encryption, plus 128 bit and cookies list for  personal information identity recognition.

Its safe online banking on android 2.2. Even unsecured wifi is safe online banking.

The big feature on tablet is the camera(0.3mp) and the ability to share on facebook and email.

Pictures can be stored on the extra microSD card, but there will be a directory of file names on the main SD memory. When you remove your external microSD card, you lost the use of the file when you insert a new flash card. So, try to stay with only one flash card of sufficiently large memory(max 32 gB).

If you use camera you can take five pictures or do a video clip. You can send the picture to memory locally as a file then out to cloud. But that leaves you wondering how to get the tablet back(back button) to other functions?

Tablets to save battery for 6 hours, is to be put to sleep(shut down), then you have to press the power button momentarily to start using it again.

To power on hold down the power button for 3 seconds. To shut down, hold the power button down for 5 seconds.

If you reset the tablet, you have to calibrate the touch screen again.

When you first start the tablet, the calibration is four corners and the center push with your finger pad.

If the touch screen is broken, the tablet can not calibrate it self.

Re: Shaking down android 2.2(Arm11/256 mB, 1 ghz) ? SYNET7LP, SYTAB7WX

Android 2.2 is bare minimum for wifi internet bigdata webpage download.

Android 4.4 can use more applications(offline) not necessarily online. Has more usb devices to be used and  bluetooth communication system, more approaching PC capability.  Battery lasted only 4 hours.

Android is moving forward, no going back to cloud computing only.

But its all useless because Android can not work when portrait and landscape display keep on switching back and forth without an icon to lock or switch. Android is dead on arrival when people can not use it efficiently. Once your old laptop gets on wifi, its better android than any google android.

Once display is locked to portrait(icon can rotate the 360 degree orientation), 800x480 will make webpage download much faster than landscape. keyboard works well too.

By deciding on settings. android can be fine tuned to efficiency when you turn it on internet.

So, your bookmarks will be facebook, ebay, online banking, My yahoo and google.

Each one has to have settings locked for the next log-in. Yahoo is not efficient for tablets yet.

Many webpage are not for Google android sizes to do sign in without moving the partial page. This made android hard to use. Android is dead, for internet cloud computing. Google has to work with bigdata websites.

However, once you managed to sign in on your bookmark, bookmark will always sign in for you on the website. On Yahoo, you have to find my yahoo(2 columns) to switch to it. Then add to bookmarks.

Resolution of 800x480 portrait is very good for full page of bigdata webpage, some of us may need magnifier to see better.

Android 2.2 internet surfing using bookmarks can save time, quickly catch up all info on the cloud. This is the goal of bigdata webpage paperless society. Do we need Android 4.4?

Re: Shaking down android 2.2(Arm11/256 mB, 1 ghz) ? SYNET7LP, SYTAB7WX

How to move the webpage on the screen? on the edge or in the center of touch screen? Both works sometime.

This can be frustrating, but you have to avoid touching any icons or functions(wasting time waiting for tablet to go back to the page of interest). Touch screen needs learning how to use.

On the bottom of the screen there are "+" or "-" to change the size of text(touch bottom right corner then move to left or up) or "-arrow" to move back up once page is moved down.

SD2 slot can allow the flash card to be inserted wrong slanted upwards. It must be inserted horizontally.

If inserted wrong, you have to take the case apart to get the micro SD card out.

Security of bookmarks stored data has serious question marks. Wifi security(wpa2-psk) does not show on the icon. Trust certificates are not always correct, you are asked to continue?

But, Bookmarks do sign in(by cookies) on all websites. Its important to have at least all wifi secured(wpa2-psk).

Online banking websites have their own encryption(s) and identity checkups. No worries here.

If short sessions of bigdata webpage avoid hackers, its safer by chance(only trusted sites get on the bookmarks).

Overheating caused software crash on downloading webpage, needed shut down to reboot.

This happened a few times but no permanent damage to Sylvania ARM 11 tablet. Some tablets use Intel cpu or amd cpu with heatsink and caused LCD damage when overheated.

Tablet is only good for short sessions.

TRUST CERTIFICATES ARE RANDOM! MAKING DISPLAY UNSTABLE TO DO DATA INPUT. Very bad Google interference.

This is posted by  sylvania arm11 tablet, not intel cpu.

It works. The more I use it, the more features function. It seemed like it had been auto updated. When the date changed to a monthly calender, it proves the update done. But settings can not upade the system.

For full page touch, you need a stylus.

Android2.2 seemed to be a good platform for BBS(apple2) for wlfi?

BBS can run a data center with games, news, files download, chat, uplpads, etc.

Bookmarks can run BBS when idling.

Some icon can be drag and drop to trash can. Including bookmarks. Or email. To simplify management of android software.

Android4 add bookmark by clicking  on a star  in history.

Re: Shaking down android 2.2(Arm11/256 mB, 1 ghz) ? SYNET7LP, SYTAB7WX

This old Android tablet needs protection of the touch surface from scratches(stylus too). It can not be dropped; the touch panel will break and you don't have usb mouse input to run the tablet(protective film doesn't stop breakage).
The new model with the same SYNET7LP name has hdmi and usb2.0(mini need female usb adapter)
input, but has Intel cpu overheats.

Hdmi needs both power on, tablet on video display, then push menu button, wait 5 seconds for hdmi display on TV. Android.1.1 now has HDMI switch and different resolution in home.

It also has overheat problem when tablet became wifi unresponsive and had to reboot.

Re: Shaking down android 2.2(Arm11/256 mB, 1 ghz) ? SYNET7LP, SYTAB7WX

If you own a new Synet7LP with hdmi, usb, ports and Intel cpu on Android2.2, you have basically a different android from the arm11 unit.

Going to android4.4(sylvania SYTAB7MMXA), you also have an otg port but the connector is larger than the otg connector on the smartphones. Be careful when you buy adapter for android the units for phones are much smaller connector.

The mini or micro USB port can do mouse or keyboard to replace broken digitizer touch screen.

The mini hdmi port can replace broken LCD with your hdmi TV.

The above two ports were added after the arm11 android2.2.

Android 2.2 can handle 32 gB(30 gB) MicroSD HC nand flash card as SD2, but be sure to unmount before removing to prevent data corruption.

This really improve the capability of tablets to store data such as video and audio.

Re: Shaking down android 2.2(Arm11/256 mB, 1 ghz) ? SYNET7LP, SYTAB7WX

Its unavoidable eventually that a tablet is bought that will not turn on. The battery is charged ok.

So using a knife, the bottom is separated from the top. The flexible cable to the LCD was found to be not even connected. Once connected, the lcd lights up, but its full of horizontal lines, no vertical lines in portrait mode. This condition is the way displays failed on 7" tablets and TVs. This LCD display problem was found to be a contact resistance problem on the daughter board(cpu and memory). Reinserting corrects resistance and LCD shows all the data(good picture). However digitizer may still not be working. It was found that flexible cable and socket has contact resistance problem too. Boundary lubricant did not solve the problem. Applying pressure made the digitizer work, so the solution is still waiting until, contacts can be made low resistance.

What has to be replaced, we will find out on some of the tablets that has hdmi connection. If display works with hdmi TV then LCD has to be replaced. Most likely just reinsert the cpu memory board for low resistance contact.

This apparently is the major defect of tablet LCD,  other than physically broken digitizer touch screen. Both parts cost $30 each. Labor is $59 including shipping. You might as well buy a new tablet when some day google upgrade their design on reliability.

Re: Shaking down android 2.2(Arm11/256 mB, 1 ghz) ? SYNET7LP, SYTAB7WX

Once your android is turned on, switched to portrait, and clicked on browser for bookmarks, you can quickly look at all the bigdata webpage to be up to date on your life.

Android can be streamlined to avoid all the clicks and waiting for computer choices. Turn on to bookmarks or speed dial and you life and transactions are up to date in no time at all. Frequent use during the day needs very little waiting.

You can see why Android could be improved in China and do it very reasonable in price.

Software for operating system should load the needed codes after browser bookmarks are selected, not before, loaded during android turn on(WHICH IS DONE WHEN SPEED DIAL IS USED).

If you have to do the same things on your android every day, automate them?

synet7lp does not have usb port on arm11 model. On intel cpu model, it has usb port. sytab7mx has mini usb, otg and hdmi ports.

USB2.0 does not work with mouse(without mini to female usb). OTG does not work with mouse.

Re: Shaking down android 2.2(Arm11/256 mB, 1 ghz) ? SYNET7LP, SYTAB7WX

Broken touch digitizer on android4 sytab7mx works with usb mouse on mini adapter. We will shake it down as well.

Basically Android 4 is the same as Android 2.2, except more ports of usb, otg and hdmi. All of which may be used to substitute broken tablet components.

This philosophy is all right, but reliability should be in hardware design to begin with. LCD, digitizer, MicroSD slot, needed redesign, software needed to turn on speed dial asap.

So, more work has to be done by google for sure before android will become popular for every day use. Bookmark download unstable is annoying. Never use touch screen protection, air bubble maybe very bad ruining your tablet.

Re: Shaking down android 2.2(Arm11/256 mB, 1 ghz) ? SYNET7LP, SYTAB7WX

Android 2.2 to 4.4 has the same software philosophy, which is one owner of any tablet. Once you setup email account, you can not remove it. Contacts you have to remove them one at a time. The best you can do with email is send the icon to recycle bin. The next owner of the tablet can not use email facility.

It almost seemed that if android is reset on the personal data, you can setup email again, but something is not yet thus usable.

So, buying used tablet from ebay is not really good, you will be loaded with previous owner's email on android4(email/gmail inbox).

The only way to reset the memory to factory setting is first delete all directories in myPad. Then go to settings privacy and reset. If you could reset local flash card then you cleared all email and gmail from previous owner. Reboot will take a long time, and you will have to set up all the settings again including bookmarks. Its worth the troubles.

Android4 has more features and share more codes which cause more bugs.

Google has no upgrade  package, Android user has no upgrade programs. Android is dead after you bought it. However, update on funtions happens when you use the tablet.

Using only speed dial for bigdata webpage, it may be fast enough.

Googgle update happened while you are on WiFi, dg2.20 or dg2.30(Intel CPU) for android2.2.  Android 4 became 4.1.1.

Be careful when you insert the SD2 in its slot. If you tilt it and lost it inside the case, you can short out the slot and never use SD2 again even if you retrieve it after opening the case. So be very careful when you insert the microSD card.
