Re: Browser crashing rebooting problems?

This still an issue for anyone, is it just me?! I've tried Flas back to 10.3 (the last version listed as compatible with A70it on Adobe site) and every current FW as they're released... nothing cures this browser crashing out with Flash content.

Anyone else still got this, or a fix?

Re: 64GB microsd compatability

That's cool. I thought there was a limit in the non XC SD cards that meant nothing over 32gigs was possible. That the A70 has XC compatible hardware is a surprise too.

How much testing have you done? Does a 48Gb file download and playback , how about twenty four 2Gb files?

Re: Firmware 2.4.82 released - report bugs here

I'm getting the browser crashing out a lot since 2.4.80, still seeing it in 81. The more flash heavy the page is the more likely it will crash out eventually... and I've had crashes with pages without any flash too. I don't get an FC message, I get nothing, a blank black screen followed by blank hom...

Re: Jabra Stereo Bluetooth headset

Im happy with my plantronics 903+. Sorry for resurrecting this old thread, but... FZelle, the 903+ aren't working with my A70. I get regular dropouts. I've tried it with local audio, pnp DLNA server files, internet radio and still get dropouts. The 903+ work fine with my Samsung Tab. Anyone else ha...

Acessing PC e-mail from tablet?

Hoping someone here can help me with this. I want to use my tablet to access my Outlook mail. It seems like such a common need. I heard MS opened the PST format for developers so I started out optimistic :) I had thought I could find an app that would read the pst file from the drive on my PC... no ...

Frank, rjrwpg,

Thanks for those endorsements. Supercharger is next... ro.HOME_APP_ADJ=1 is working like a charm. No redraws all day.

Re: Homescreen Problems

I started having similar issues, even though I was using Zeam and not too many widgets. I tried other launchers but didn't like them as much (although Go Launcher EX seemed pretty good). Finally I rooted my tablet, in part so I could try a trick I read about, adding a setting to the /data/local.pro...

But it sems to be fixed again, and the interface is working better too, and the AV sync. Seems Netflix are...

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

I totally agree on the power button delay. 2 second delay minimum for power on or wake. Huge problem. I had figured that was part of the overall sluggish performance. I've seen the volume take 5 seconds to appear ont eh screen when a volume up/down buttons is pressed, and then the volume sometimes ...

Re: Firmware 2.4.80 released - report bugs here

I'm noticing that apps generally load slower with this FW. The worst case was the stock music player took 13seconds to load! The homescreen reload is flakey as usual... but I can say that switching between apps quickly, just a few minutes in each, means the homescreen reloads faster. I guess the lau...

Re: Firmware 2.4.65 released - report bugs here

I posted my battery life was not affected by the FW update, well.... Sometimes it is, sometimes not. Today I dropped 30% in one hour, about twice the usual drain, and the tab felt warm in my hand. I put the tab down for a few minutes, it powered down. When I picked it up it was showing the battery j...

Re: Firmware 2.4.65 released - report bugs here

On the battery drain. I've gone through 20% in 1h 30m which seems about right. The battery value update doesnt seem to be fluid, it jumps, 70, 63, 59, 53... like that. Then back up to 55 after a short sleep, then dropped to 54, then up to 56 after a short sleep. Angry birds smooth, but AB fixed that...
