Can't seem to get Facebook to work on the Cruz R103
Sunday 02nd of October 2011
Hey everyone. We've been having some troubles with our new Cruz R103. We updated the Firmware for it no problem, and the internet is a little slow but not much of a problem. My sister uses it mostly as a e-reader, and to surf the internet and such. Well She is having the following problems. 1. whenever she goes on facebook the screen will go black after she tries to push a button or update her status. She just can't seem to get Facbook to work on it.2. She can't play any videos. 3. She would like the internet to go as fast as it does on her laptop. (I don't think this one can be helped but I promised I'd list it)So I know this is a little annoying of me to ask, especially being new and all but I can't seem to find the answers to these problems and I am not at all tech savvy. So could I ask that instructions be given to help me out? Thank all of you in advance for any and all help.
Big Lots 7" Cruz tablet, can't upgrade firmware, hard to identify
Thursday 08th of December 2011
I just got a 7" Cruz Tablet/eReader from Big Lots. The label on the box says T103.When I boot it up and check the model number in Settings, it says PT701. And themanual pre-installed on the device is for the T301.I'm trying to upgrade to Android 2.2. There's a label on the box saying this can bedone. I don't have it in front of me right now but something along the lines of surf tothis URL and follow the instructions. The URL redirects to Support Center.I've tried the T301 and T100 series upgrades. They both start the upgrade but then get validation errors.How can I be sure what device this is, and how can I upgrade the firmware successfully?Thanks!

I got this 5 days ago and it has given me a headache ever since! I have been tempted many time to just return it. I have a few books that are in PDF I was finally able to get them on the reader into my book folder but i would love to have them in a library with the book cover is there an app to download to do this? I currently have Aldiko but I cant get books into it, that I have downloaded. I also have calibre and tried to convert them to epub but still no luck. I am really lost and dont understand all the technical stuff so if someone could please help!!

BTC and MrPuddles, Hey did you both try to do the upgrade to 2.2? I also noticed that the tablet itself, in the Settings menu, says it is a PT701 but the label on the Tablet says T103. The T100 upgrade worked but not exactly as they had said. I didn't notice any errors when I ran the upgrade and I know when I reset it, it came back up to the Home screen and it seemed ok. I'll try to put pictures up tonight and show you the model numbers on the box, the tablet and in the Settings menu. My friend is coming over tonight to get the tablet so I'll have to get it done quick. Have either of you heard back from Support? I suppose they're swamped due to it's Christmas, everyone probably bought the tablet that Big Lots had and they are all having the same issue as you are. I'm going to check their website too for other clues. Sorry that this upgrade didn't work for you. Hope all turn out ok though. Rich

Just got a Cruz R103 from a lady down the road for $50... May be a little pricey, but no shipping and handling fee plus two sleeves and a number of styluses so I couldn't say no.Never used an Android tablet before. Never used 2.0 before either. (My phone is a 2.2.2.)I know that it doesn't have access to Google Play, but I would like to know if there's any way to root it and get apps on there or not. I also know the system isn't that great, but I'd like to be able to download the Kindle app so some books can be ported over to it.I'm not expecting a whole lot from it but if someone could let me know what it's furthest capabilities are, I can probably do stuff to it.Already got the file from Velocity Micro to do a factory reset on it, then an update. Just don't have a power cable until tomorrow. (It works, it just wasn't charged that much and the lady had to get the charger back from her sister so I can get it tomorrow morning.)Basically just looking for someone else that's messed with this model to let me know what I can and can't do. Looks nice and really just want to fix it up for my

I called support. The tech advised me to hold the reset button down for 30 seconds. It worked, yay! Incidentally it really works best to call themon the phone. You will wait forever for a response from the web-basedsupport.
Cruz R103 Software drivers upgrade.
Sunday 11th of August 2013
Does anyone know how to upgrade the software on the Cruz R103 to a different android operating system. The present system limits everything a normal tablet would allow. I like the sturdy design and I tried other tablets but they tend to be too fragile for my taste.
