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.

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.

This firmware runs perfect. It is rooted too and has the market installed. Better performance.

This firmware installs ok. HoneyComb (fake) interface. Performance is slow.


Installs fine. Nice interface. Rooted and Market. Performance is good.

LIST of NOT WORKING firmwares:

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

– 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.
