Please Update BETV 2 to BETV 3 and BETV II 3 for New Upgrade

It is a little confusing, but here is the simple summary:

Just go to TVPad Stores and install all BETV apps again in the “New Apps” section. BETV 2 no longer works so you have to upgrade them in order to watch CCTV channels.

BETV 2 -> BETV II 3 (3 days playback)

BETV HD -> BETV HD 3

BETV -> BETV3

BETV 3 BETV HD 3 BETV II 3

How to Rearrange and Group Your Favorite Apps in One Page

Most of the time when you received your TVPad, it will be pre-installed with bunch of apps that you might never use but they always show on the first page. It is a bit annoying to go all the way down to the last page and use your favorite apps. As a result, TVPad Toolbox app has come up with a way to allow you arrange and group your favorite apps to your first page on dashboard:

1) Download the latest Toolbox app (工具箱) from TVPad Store (You need firmware 3.7+)
2) Open Toolbox app and select “Program Rearrangement”

How to Upgrade Firmware 4.08 to 4.18 for TVPad 3 M358

1) First of all, I was mistaken in the last post. If you upgrade from firmware 4.08 to 4.18, you WILL NOT lose the apps you currently have. However, I still suggest users to backup their current apps using latest Toolbox software (工具箱) just in case if something happens. You can always restore your apps with the backup. If you decide to back up, plugin your USB Flash Drive to TVPad3, open toolbox app and choose “backup/revert” (应用备份/还原) so you can get a clone of your current system that will backup all your settings and apps.

2)If you have V4.08 at stock (TVPad 3 m358), please update to V4.18. Download this to the root of your USB drive:

3) When I mean “the root” on your USB Flash drive, I mean to save the file WITHOUT saving into folders or directories

4) Plug that into TVPad and restart TVPad. Go to dashboard and go to “system setting” and choose “system upgrade” with your USB Flash Drive still plugin

5) It will take 5-10 mins to upgrade to firmware 4.18. Make sure you don’t power off during the upgrade, otherwise you can’t turn back on your TVPad and you have to return it to the manufacture!!!

6) Then you double check your firmware version by going to “system setting” and choose “system note” (系统信息)

7) Your apps should stay. If your apps are accidentally deleted, don’t worry, go to App manager and install “ToolBox” again. After installation, open toolbox and go to “backup/revert” (应用备份/还原) to reset your system back to the previous backup you saved on your USB Flash Drive.

How to Upgrade Firmware 3.8 to 3.94 for TVPad 2 M233

I am repeating myself, but many people have been asking me the detail and get confused with other firmware for TVPad3 so I did a seperate post in here:

1) First of all, I was mistaken in the last post. If you upgrade from firmware 3.8 to 3.94, you WILL NOT lose the apps you currently have. However, I still suggest users to backup their current apps using latest Toolbox software (工具箱) just in case if something happens. You can always restore your apps with the backup. If you decide to back up, plugin your USB Flash Drive to TVPad2, open toolbox app and choose “backup/revert” (应用备份/还原) so you can get a clone of your current system that will backup all your settings and apps.

2) If you have V3.80 at stock (TVPad 2 m233), please update to V3.94. Download this to the root of your USB drive:

4) Plug that into TVPad and restart TVPad. Go to dashboard and go to “system setting” and choose “system upgrade” with your USB Flash Drive still plugin

It is not that difficult seriously. Some of my relatives and friends are hesitated to upgrade themselves and they want to send it back to me. I was like “this only takes you 10 mins and just follow my directions and it will be fine”.
