Android ViewSonic G-Tablet BlueTooth iConnex Fix

I wasn’t going to post this since it it extremely specific. However after looking around the i-Connex and android Modding are not all that uncommon.

I have a GTablet, the best thing about it is how open ViewSonic made it to modding.    After installing pretty much every mod made for the device I ended up with FlashBack 10.1 since it used HD, the maketplace worked, flash worked, my SD card worked and the only thing that didn’t work was the bluetooth, and almost no stack works with all bluetooth devices.  You would be surprised that most Mods, cannot do all of those things, while most can do most.  GTabComb came in second with a broken marketplace when trying to purchase free apps.  VeganTab a solid 3rd, but it’s downfall was lack of HD support.

Step 1. Go to www.OTADrivers.com

Step 2. select the Freedom Connect then select Android 2.0 or 3.0 this will download the APK for the bluetooth device.

Step 3.  Make sure you are hitting the pairing embedded key when you are trying to connect. (This is similar to a old linksys router reset button. You will need a ball point pen or somethign small.

Step 4. The android device will tell you to punch in a code.  You do so and it connects.

This was the only fully functioning ROM and to be honest after 3 weekend days of just playing around and re-clock-work-modding/Flashing my device over and over I am glad to be done with it.  However, since if I knew all this to start. I would highly recommend this device since it’s about 200~- 250 on ebay and can easily compete with an IPad, Xoom etc.

Wanted to save others the hassle/headache.
