Hi there,

I am on my second v9 after the first one went back to the store due to screen calibration issues. Anyway, I have been trying to download flash so that i can do the basics like stream tv or movies - but to no avail. Is there any way that this can be done? It's driving me crazy!

The V9 runs android 2.1

Any help is appreciated!

Melody

So maybe a custom rom for it using 2.2 - although this usually voids the warranty

I'm not sure if telecom plan to release a 2.2 update but i imagine they would at some point.

But if your feeling techie you can flash the rom yourself to a custom 2.2 rom - i am sure their will be one out their.

Of course you don't need flash for theings like youtube as they have their own app.

Agreed. I got too excited & purchased without thinking. Expensive mistake.

Thanks to all who posted a reply. Just found out via Telecom that a 2.2 update is not planned for the V9, but this could change.
