    You have just released the Chinese Firmware 6.11.

    When will this be available for International customers to support limited USB 3G device functionality?

    Thanks for your answer in advance

  2. Pape 说道:

    Jep, that would be so nice…… or at least being able to connect a bluetooth dongle and connect apad to iphone through bluetooth :)

  3. Eric 说道:

    Bluetooth would be the best. Most people have smart phones with internet on them and bluetooth. Adding this even with an app would be realy great.

  4. iSandor 说道:

    Do you plan to update the English firmware as well? Btw, will it be ever updated to android 2.0 or at least 1.6?
    Thanks for your answer in advance

  5. Sutrisno 说道:

    Hi I downloaded from the link above and the file is corrupt, I have downloaded many times and the same result. Please provide me the correct one. Thanks :)

  6. iEagle 说道:

    Everything looks good on this revision. It would be nice that iRobot can adapt a bluetooth GPS via USB port. iRobot will show me the way home. I’m very looking forward to …
    Thank you all for such earnest job.

  7. Prasetyo 说道:

  8. 3exponl 说道:

    which 3g usb devices are supported? which chipsets? GSm or CDMA? any 2g devises supported?

  9. djonidep 说道:

    I have a very quiet speaker. model with a video camera. How do I make the sound louder.
    Sincerely djonidep.

    • chip3c_english 说道:

      That’s one of the weaker points of the Apad iRobot, and no longer an issue with the Apad iRobot M.

      If it bothers you, make sure volume is turned up to the max. Or else you ‘could’ make the rear speaker port bigger with a knife.

      If that still isn’t good enough, we recommend using external speakers. The audio quality is excellent on the Apad, and this isn’t just our marketing.

  10. apad user 说道:

    I just upgraded the latest firmware,
    when can you release a firmware that both supports Camera and microphone??
    please help!

  11. Max Sim 说道:

    What 3G USB Dongle is supported.
    Anyone tried it and it works??

  12. Dimon9600 说道:

    when you put source code and drivers for apad irobot ?
    because android is extends on license GPL

  13. martin 说道:

    hey guys, i used your firmwares here to update my aPad and now my aPad is screwed up, when it boot i see only black screen, wtf?? Please release good version soon, I saw that i’m not the only one, I don’t know what are you doing but i just bought this thing!

  14. Bo 说道:

    Which 3g modem to use with the apad?

  15. JG 说道:

    There was never an exact reply on which 3G dongle can work and how to configure on APAD. I think we can assume it is not possible. I cannot get my Huawei E176 to work.

  16. Ed 说道:

    I have the Irobot APAD with the front facing camera (on the screen) with the external twin USB/ethernet connecter. I can read my USB thumbdrive using the connector, but when i try to connect to my notebook using a USB – USB cable, my notebook does not detect the apad. I tried using the RKAndroid and it says “player not found”.

    Can you advise what is wrong? I am trying to reflash my rom with new firm ware. Alternatively, can i reflash the rom without connecting to another computer?

  17. mattstakilla 说道:

    Is it just me or is there no file to download? Where exactly is it?

  18. mattstakilla 说道:

    there is no download button, im gonna try on another web browser and see what happens

  19. michael 说道:

    i recently received my apad in the mail (monday) i was wondering. i have successfully flashed to 5.3. how do i go about putting android 1.6 on? is it even possible?

    thank you!

  20. Anmol Mishra 说道:

    When will the Android 2.1 update be release for the Red Led, front camera version 7-inch iRobot ? Can you give a schedule ?
    I bought this for a certain app and found that it only works for 1.6 and up. 1,5 is useless from my end.

  21. Peter 说道:

    Hello!

    I got an A-pad today and I’ve tried connecting it to my Huawei E220 3G modem, but I don’t know how to connect. The modem light is flashing though.

    Please can you tell me how to get it work?
    And if it’s not possible, could you PLEASE create an sotfware to make it possible to use 3G dongle?
    I can’t use Wifi at all…

    We really need Huawei 3G dongle support please ;__;

    • Nicole 说道:

      Hi Peter,
      Did you get a reply?
      Did you get it too work? I’m having the exact same problem :(

    • Peter 说道:

      Hello Nicole!

      No sorry, no reply at all :(
      I am really starting to give this up… :(

      I should perhaps try in some other forums and sites, since this place doesn’t really give a lot support (if any at all)

    • chip3c_english 说道:

      Sorry. I actually am not familiar with getting this functionality to work. However, not all USB 3G devices are going to work. We do support our customers for 3G via USB locally.

  22. Len1 说道:

    Hi everyone, can someone help me. My Apad screen cracked and I don’t have a clue how to replace it. Also, the Apad I-Web,
    I-Robot are they the same, mines has front camera, 1.5 Android, can’t seem to function with youtube, has constant turn off issues and sometimes will not start when the power button is pushed. I have had it just about 4 months, and I believe the cracked screen is a byproduct of overheating. Can someone tell me what my options are here. Great forum.

  23. Jimmy AR 说道:

    PLease can someone respond to my question. I have an I Robot that would not come on. The green Light comes on but nothing on the screen. I also have one MID that would not stay charged. Once you remove the power from it It goes off. Just bought these from China. Please respond.

    • Jonattan 说道:

      Same problem!!! brand new and Black screen!!!!!!!!!!!! Not even being abble to use it once! mine is the blue led one, 10.2 inch Android 2.1

  24. cats 说道:

    Hello, nice to come to your blog!

  25. ipad Cheap 说道:

    waiting for a time to come generation to arrive. The inherent is truly there for this machine, but based on my current briefcase of tech engines (laptop, desktop, iphone, itouch) i’m not sure this machine quite justifies the price at this time for me.

  26. David Scott 说道:

    I am unable to install drivers from upgrade tool on Windows 7 64-bit.
