I charged it overnight first time (partly while using) then ran it down till it turned off before recharging . Did this first few times but not leaving it plugged in past 100% charge when using (thats the mistake i made with my laptop). It took system a while to realise where zero actually was, 2% lasted well over an hour of gaming the first couple of times.
Thanks for the advice. The momo is still on charge so haven't used it yet, the instructions that come with it are not that brilliant. Have you downloaded any aps yet.? and do you know which e books it will be compatable with.?
If you go to the GTR Electronics website, click on the update tool and instruction via this link http://www.gtrelectronics.co.uk/downloads-and-firmware.php you need to be using a windows PC rather than a mac but that will give you specific instructions which are quite easy to follow in order to update. Then you just need the firmware itself, im using 4.0.4 available from this link http://www.4shared.com/rar/zyivbZmz/Neutral_M8_Bird-404-0615.html? although there is now a more upto date version available from the ployer website, which I believe Gary from GTR is checking compatability of.
Hi. I took your advice and contacted draco,they sent me a link so I could download the upgrade but the link was wrong, I've contacted them again but had no reply as yet, my momo8bird keeps shutting down when I'm trying to do something and also takes ages to boot up, I've charged it up but I'ts still playing up,it looks well made but there must be something wrong with it.
Pete, have you tried using the firmware version from this link? http://www.4shared.com/rar/zyivbZmz/Neutral_M8_Bird-404-0615.html? its the version im using and i can confirm its stable, must admit though I didnt realise you had bought direct and all the stuff iv been linking to is from GTR (british supplier) which is bit cheeky of me to be fair to Gary seeing as he didnt get a sale out of this, although possibly highlights how good his customer service is over Draco for anyone else reading this.
Should also state that putting this on your device may void any warranty from Draco as they have not supplied it direct to you.
Hi again Yes When I ordered it from Amazon I read reviews about GTR and thought that my order would be placed with themas they seemed to be a good company, however it was placed with Draco instead, I don't know the reason but I presume that GTR must have been out of stock so Amazon used Draco. I have just had an e mail from Draco saying that the link should work but it dosen't, the problem must be because it was sent from China. It gets frustrating after a while. Thanks again for your help
