    01. Download the firmware update from here you will also need this extracted first that contains your usb drivers in case windows asks for them
    02. Make sure the battery is fully charged and you have the AC (power) adapter plugged in
    03. Download and unzip the firmware update and USB drivers to a folder on your PC. Make sure all .zip files are unzipped
    04. Shut down the device. Make sure it's not in standby, but really shut down.
    05. Connect the device to the PC with the USB connection cable.
    06. Boot to recovery mode by following the next procedure exactly:

    * Press and hold the 'back' button on top of the device.
    * After 1 second push and hold the 'power' button too. Don't release the back button yet!
    * After 1 more second release the 'power' button, while holding the back button.
    * After yet another second, release the 'back' button too.
    * If you've done this correctly, the PC will play a 'device connected' sound.

    07. On the PC go to 'Device manager', right click the "APX" device without drivers and choose to update the device driver
    08. Browse the PC for the unzipped drivers and ignore all warnings about driver verification (Install anyway)
    09. Done correctly it will show the "NVIDIA USB Boot-recovery driver for mobile devices"

    10. Start the executable firmware update on the PC and wait for it to finish

    report back how you get on make sure you download the usb drivers first. As you will probably need them when you enter recovery mode

  • Martin Murray Mar 12, 2011

    hold the power button for longer, to make sure it powers off and you will know if it is off completely as it wont react when you connect it to the pc. Also remember you have to follow the button sequence EXACTLY to get it into recovery mode, its very similar to jailbreaking an iphone

    How to fix the prestigio tablet 'insufficient storege space message error'?I've tried deleting my apps and gallery content but it doesn't work.

    Move your apps to the SD card via Settings - Apps. You have to move each app one at a time, and some will not move. Then clear your browser cache. Delete old messages, especially ones with photos and videos with them.

    How can I delete my data from an iPad 2 whose display is black & unreadable?

    Hi David,
    I think this will help you please refer to below steps:

    1. Make sure the iPad battery is charged above 20% ( we would recommend at least 40 - 50 %). If you are not sure charge you tablet for at least 30 -40 minutes.
    2. Make sure iTunes is not running on your computer but is ready to be run.
    3. Temporally disable firewalls and other security software to prevent interference with iTunes.
    4. Make sure your tablet is disconnected from the dock or USB data cable that equips the gadget . Nevertheless USB cable must be plugged into your PC or MAC.
    5. Make sure your PC or MAC is awake and its screen saver is turned off.
    6. Simultaneously press and hold down the Wake/Sleep button and the Home button and wait until "slide to power off" screen appears. Don't do anything after its appearing, just keep holding Wake/Sleep and Home buttons until Apple tablet will power off.
    7. Release the Wake/Sleep button once Apple tablet is off , but continue to hold the Home button
    8. Holding the home button, connect the USB data cable to iPad. When you reconnect the USB cable, tablet should power on and you should see a message on your PC/MAC display saying that iTunes has detected an iPad in Recovery Mode
    9. After you detected this message, release the home button and press OK on iTunes pop-up to confirm the restore option.
    10. Do not touch iconic tablet and you computer while iTunes downloads and installs the fresh copy of firmware on your iPad. You will be notified by iTunes when iPad is successfully restored, but... in a while, you will get an message saying that the iPad isn't recognized. Don't panic. This is because all user content on iPad including activation status was erased during restoration.
    11. Disconnect iPad from iTunes ,unplug from computer and turn off.
    12. Turn iPad on and using iTunes activate it on any computer you have. Apple currently allows up to 5 computers to be authorized for each iPad.

    Does deleting the app also delete the content?

    Yes. If you want to save the content, you should backup your ipad to your PC first, in case you want to reload it all again later. But be sure to save the backup file as well, otherwise it will be overwritten by the next backup you do.

    My Polaroid Tablet will not download content. My internal sd card is full, could this be the problem? Also how can I access the internal sd card to erase content?

    You should connect the phone to any system, which could regogonize the internal SD card. Most system will recogonize it. You can choose the SD card, and can delete the contents you wish to do.
