Post by vitha on Sun Oct 28, 2012 11:54 pm

For all those who have got a Zeki 7 inch tablet who want to update from 4.0.3 stock to 4.0.4
Now to start off your zeki comes fully rooted, so no need to install superuser or any of that stuff.
There are 2 ways of doing this.

1st way
1st: you need to have a micro sd card to do this process.
2nd: Use your PC to download the update.zip file. (next either use micro sd adapter to pc or use USB cable to pc. once plugged in notification will come up bottom right, click and turn usb on.)
3rd: Put the update.zip file on the micro sd card. make sure zip is on root not in any folders. (if using USB go to notification and turn off USB)
4th: go in to settings, go all the way down to About tablet and click that, now you will see systemUpdate
5th click check now. It will ask if you want to update and it will auto find the update file. just click yes

2nd way
Follow steps one thru three above
Turn Zeki off, power on Zeki and hold down negative or lower volume button. You will come to the Recovery portion of the bios
install update and make sure you go to ext sd card. (if you have no micro sd card, you can do this from root as well)
In version 4.0.4 Changes you will See

Great setup, I followed your instruction and it was no problem at all. I also watch your youtube on how to do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJJV2ql8JfA&feature=plcp

I have somewhat successfully upgraded my zeki TB1082b from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 using the instructions here. One major issue is my G sensor has seem to reverse itself. If my tablet is vertical my screen is horizontal and vice versa. I also noticed it changed my model from tb1082b to tb782b in the specs. Did a factory reset but Zeki held onto the 4.0.4 software. I have been trying to boot to recovery console by holding volume - and pressing power button but the zeki just loads to main home page. Anybody maybe have any suggestions? Thanks in advanced.

EDIT: I have also noticed that my volume control buttons are no longer volume controls they have also changed with the 4.0.4 update.

Have you tried the reset.

Thanks for the response.

I have held the reset button on the back for 30 seconds with the tablet off and with the tablet on both yielding the same results, the tablet just boots up normally.

I can't get into recovery mode using the volume key and power buttons because 4.0.4 changed my volume keys and they are no longer volume keys (I am guessing this is why) but it won't go to recovery mode.

If I run software reset I am able to get to recovery mode with all the options but I can't select between options cause my volume - button isn't really volume - so it doesn't work.

Even with these issues I have really liked the 4.0.4 update just wish I could get these resolved. Appreciate you taking the time to respond and I will accept any other input you might have.

Spoke with a guy at Digital Products International, the people who make the Zeki tablets. He told me if the volume keys stop working, it has nothing to do with firmware or software. It is a hardware problem.

For more info I found out Digital Products International makes Zeki, GPX, iLive, and weather products. So I guess that's why you see Zeki's sold at Kmart. They sell the GPX brand.

The buttons didnt totally stop working. They were trying to do something other then volume. Like volume + is trying to switch to another page on my home page and volume - is bringing up some menu in the corner and it didn't start happening till I upgraded. Coincidence maybe I dunno. Would like to either get back to 4.0.3 or at least fix the g sensor problem. Thank you very much for looking.

Purchased a TB782B a week ago. New to tablets and Android. Mine already has 4.0.4 Baseband is 1.5 Reset button is on the side between the usb and hdmi. Like it very much except google play ran once and never again. Amazon works sometimes. I was wondering if relashing it would make a differnce? Thank you for all the information you have here.

Good, I am glad it worked, some times there can be fragment files and a reflash can fix it right up

Any apps that will allow you to block access like PDroid? It will not load onto my Zeki. I have had no trouble since I flashed it. Some apps do not run on Zeki which is disappointing. Thanks for your help. All answers appreciated.

No there is not one. Since there are not many developers out there for the Zeki.
