    if your phone's an android u might be able to download a wifi tether app from google play. lots of them have free versios so u don't have to pay for it until u find one that works

      I figured out why it won't do a tether to the phone. The tablet doesn't have 3G capability. I haven't found any "wifi" apps that use wifi and not 3G.

      BTW I can't find the accept third party apps thingy. Is it not needed on rooted tablet?

      • The tether app is for your phone which does have 3g to share that connection over WiFi.

          Yes and so far all I have found are tethering apps that create a 3G hotspot.

              Thanks, tried it and it said, "Failed to activate WiFi."?

                  • A Few Questions...

                    Hey guys, I have been away from this thread, but it was a big help when I first got my PTAB7XC and so I have now returned seeking some more help. I have few questions...I have never flashed anything before but am encouraged by what I have read about speed and play working.

                    I looked at the link for 703C and there are two things
                    1. PMID703C V 0.41 (ICS) which is listed as "NEW" and
                    2. PMID703C V 0.31 (ICS) which is listed as "Stable"


                    Which one did you use with such great results? I just follow the southerntelcom instructions listed except for the few changes at step 17 an so on?

                    Also, do you know if this or if there is a true fix to the SD card not being read as external memory because right now I still have the same roughly 4 Gigs, partitioned into 2 gigs of Internal and another 1 Gig of Internal Memory, I have an 32 Gig SD card that shows 29.7 gigs available, but when I send things "to SD Card" it only goes to the 2 gig of internal memory. Any help/answer on this question would be helpful. I read in some other threads but did not find clear solution.

                    Thanks again to a great community.

                      There are lots of threads explaining how to swap the internal/external sd card. As for 'new' vs 'stable'. It's just that. The only ROMS I consider 'unstable' are the ones in the 'experimental' heading heh. I have 0.41 on my tablet right now and it runs fine.

                        So your rom does not fix this correct? I just want to make sure I understand that after I would put this ROM on there, I would still have to do the swap thing with the internal/external SD card thing? Base on your expert opinion is there one process you would recommend or did do with your set up? I have read some of the threads and most applaud SingleDad's fix listed in this thread:

                        renegade4dio mentioned at the end of that thread that he was swapping mount point and associated label and it lost me. I am still a pretty novice tablet guy who wants to get the most out of my tablet but worried about going out into deep water and getting a brick or not being savvy enough to get it back to where I have it now. I am sorry to bother, am willing to try stuff, just a little anxious I guess. Any guidance that you could share I would value and appreciate, if/when you have time.

                        Thanks again

                        • Haha it's ok to be nervous-I think everyone is when they start tweaking their devices for the first time. First, I would investigate how to flash the stockbimage. Flash it a few times on your device until you feel comfortable, then flash the 703 ROM. Now, to answer your questions-no, this tablet is fairly unbrickable-do your worst. Second, my ROM doesn't 'fix' the internal/external sd card, because I don't view it as a 'bug'. Now, I will say that you should keep searching these forums-it's actually somewhat painless to switch the sd cards, and I think you've probably found the most complicated thread addressing it hehe.

                          • I know this is a really old thread but I still have one of these dinosaur tablets & considering it still works, I've decided to just let 4y/o niece have it for games & videos. My problem is the Google Play store not being loaded & I'm sorry but I don't understand how to even begin following those instructions that are posted here. Like where do I even begin? Where do I go to load those"apk" files? Obviously I'm no computer/device geek, actually I'm kinda clueless but I most certainly can follow directions if they were a little more in depth & catered to the less knoweledgable folks like myself if anyone could assist me I would really appreciate it.
