The reason why it won't work, probably, is because its very likely missing the Google Services Framework.

I've been doing a bit of searching for you and it sounds like you have the SuperPad2 Flytouch 3 10". From what I've found lots of people who own that tablet have trouble getting Android Market to work properly, but since it has Android Market it should technically have the Framework files I mentioned in my earlier post.

 

So can you elaborate on the problem a little bit?

Can you access Android Market?

If so, can you download and run any other things?

If you are trying to download Google Talk from Android Market, when does it mess up?

thank you, yes you are correct that is the tablet I own. since your reply I have done some more research and as far as I can find out it appears that these tablets are manufactured in china and they do not install the full version of Google Android as this has to be licensed and I believe they have to pay a fee for this. so the Google Android on these tablets is not a full version even though I have Google Services Framework 2.2 listed in the applications this is not 100% functional. I am a long term PC user but do not know enough to work out how to get the full version on this tablet.

Basically if I look in market and search for Talk or Google places it can not find them, if I try and download from the Google web site it installs them but these can not be used or seen on the tablet. I also believe that Google maps and navigation will not function. I have GPS and a app that tells me I have 24 satellites tuned but maps will not find GPS. I downloaded street view and this is shown in list of Apps but not anywhere else and will not work on Maps either. I believe this can only be corrected by obtaining the full Google Android version and that some users have managed to get this from a hacker or some other source. I am in the UK and purchased this from an eBay shop here in the UK, they are not interested in assisting anyone they just want sales so I have sent a review through eBay and mentioned these problems. Can you help to get full Google Android? Your help is very much appreciated.

Like you mentioned, I too only came across people with working markets after using custom software from hackers. It's kind of an obscure tablet, I haven't been able to find any large communities with knowledge on how to modify it to work.

While not an immediate solution, I thought maybe I would at least share with you the Acer Iconia A100. My brother has one and I can assure you all of the core Google Apps work great on it. However it is smaller than what you have, a 7" / 17cm screen. It likely cost more as well, typically £258.00, however, it is one of the cheapest full featured Android tablets I've seen. I wish you luck dealing with Ebay!

New to this android system and not sure where this should be posted. I have a new (1 week) chinese U9gt2 tablet that was working fine and I was learning how to use. Then suddenly it no longer completely loads. It does the following:

 

 

device shows little green android man then

device shows android ice cream sandwich then goes no further

 

NOTE: I have done nothing irregular ie as attempt to root, etc.

 

Think what I'm looking for is something similar to windows reboot in safemode or emergency reboot

 

thanks in advance
