Pull your head in...be a bit more considerate towards less knowledgeable members...and...you probably have more friends that way!
I think this this language and attitude is not very netiquette friendly and will help you here, in a forum or in a social group.
Globula, myself and many people in this forum are spending considerable time to help the community and never got treated like that. Read the thanks counter in our profile should give you some indications on all the efforts we are deploying to help _everybody_
Yes, we have some knowledge about tablets but there is no reason to feel superior in any way. Still, we expect forum members to make some little efforts to help themselves and each other. Doing some searches in our forum should have given your answer a while ago, but you preferred to take another route...
If you really want to be helped, I'd expected some apologies else just leave the forum, this is not going anywhere constructive.
If you like our web site, applications and firmwares, feel free to support our site. Donations are used to pay the bills for our server hosting costs, development tools and purchase new tablets to support.
Have a good day little man, I have better things to do then arguing on what you don`t understand.
Btw, learn what is
RESPECT/DECENCY/BEING POLITE, I think that your parents have failed big time on these aspects, which are part of being HUMAN.
Admin...believe me...l am definitely not superior...it just makes me angry that people up there in admin...
treat you like your an idiot!
You all know...definitely would've checked my profile...that lm a amateur electronics lover...who is definitely not very smart in electronics hype!
But...you don't take that into consideration...as you can see!
Asking a simplistic question to you knowledgeable people here how do l flash my tablet to prepare it for upgrading to 4.2.
Do l press the power button with volume up button...or...different!?
Shut down the tablet
Press the volume key - ( i don`t know for sure which one, but if you try, you wont die)
Keep the volume key pressed, then insert the USB cable
If in windows the pop-up with the drivers appears, and also the screen on the tablet is black, you are in flashing mode.
Now you need to use/install the appropriate drivers for your OS.
Open the Rockchip Batch Tool, see if you have a green square, if you have one you are good to flash, select the firmware (after you unpack it from the zip archive) and use the RESTORE button to flash.
Now, this guide or at least a variation of it has been posted at least 200 times, or for us to keep repeating the same things is becoming annoying.
We can not make a general guide, because not all the tablets enter in the flashing mode in the same way ( they do most of them, depending also on the chipset used)

Well, your words will remain on the Internet, the people will judge you not me.
Rockchip flashing tool, with drivers

I thought I would commend globula_neagra's patience and fine manners.
I myself had some difficulty making heads or tails of how to convince my U30GT2 to decide to play nice and get into firmware update mode. Even though I'm not a stranger to Android, or even Rockchip devices, this particular model had me stumped for most of the day.
Here is my report and success story, as I have managed to install CWM, and test a couple of ROMs tonight on the U30GT2.
I was having heaps of trouble figuring out how to flash my U30GT2, even with all the recommendations of which keys to hold, which sequence, when to attach the microUSB cable to the tablet, and making sure the Rockchip USB drivers were installed in Windows...
I'm not a complete newbie to Rockchip devices. I've got a Teclast player (T51 for audio) and boy was that a pain to load the drivers and navigate the Rockchip Batch Tool (when these types of devices were much less common).
Anyhow on to the point of my post.
For ME; this worked:
Task # 1:
I was trying to flash the CWM Recovery.
The key sequence I used was:
1. Volume + button (held in constantly)
2. Power button (held in)
(with the USB "A" end attached to the USB Port of my Windows 7 x64 PC, with the RKAndroidTool 1.37 application opened as Administrator...);
3. I then inserted the microUSB end into the receptacle on my U30GT2 tablet (WHILE STILL holding _both_ Volume +, AND Power buttons)
4. I released the Power button (WHILE continuing to hold the Volume + button)
5. The RKAndroidTool 1.37 looked for and verified the Rockchip drivers for the tablet
6. The RKAndroidTool 1.37 proceeded to go ahead and flash (successfully) my tablet, and then reboot my tablet to Android.
Task # 2: Testing some of the different available Stock Android ROM firmware from Cube, as well as the Custom ROM firmware from ARCTABLETS:
The sequence 1. thru 4. work with the Rockchip Batch Tool (1.6) to load the firmware from Cube, or from ARCTABLETS (custom rom) via the "Restore" button on the Rockchip Batch Tool.
Hopefully this helps someone who is having difficulty accomplishing these tasks.
