Modding & rooting the QMedia Tablet PC Qpc617 firmware

Published by:

This is a list of modded android images I have tested on the €99 tablet PC from QMedia, currently for sale in Carrefour Belgium ( and elsewhere ).

Note: I will update this list as I test more firmwares.

Note2: BE CAREFULL upgrading the tablet. You MAY brick it. I will take NO RESPONSIBILITY for your actions, when you damage or brick your tablet. I only provide this information as is.

I could not find the original firmware for the QPC617 from QMedia and I don’t know how to make a backup, so I took a leap of faith experimenting with this device.

WMT2.1.2_105_M3CSL_V1.0
This was the first firmware I tested. It works perfectly, but is not rooted. It has the market installed. Processor runs at 174 Mhz. Good performance.

WMT2.1.6_LF-X_V1.0B6
This firmware runs perfect. It is rooted too and has the market installed. Better performance.

PanImage_SGS_ACADEV_2.22.11_Full (link)
This firmware installs ok. HoneyComb (fake) interface. Performance is slow.
PanImage_SGS_ACADEV_2.22.11_Full_1

PanImage_SGS_ACADEV_2.22.11_Full_2

GS_WMT216_V5.0_ACADEV_BLACK_EDITION (link)
Installs fine. Nice interface. Rooted and Market. Performance is good.

LIST of NOT WORKING firmwares:
WMT2.50_RSX_TS_A_SPEC_V2

PS: None of the images/firmwares are overclocked. The two most popular overclock apps (OC Widget & SetCPU ) won’t work. Maybe in future versions.

Tips:
– When booting after a flash update, the animate boot-logo ( ANDROID ) may look like it is locked in a loop. Just be patient (maybe 2 , 3 minutes). All following boots will not suffer from this delay.
