    2. Click the Download link for the file you want to download.
    3. Use a computer to format your microSD card (512 MB is recommended).
    4. Copy the update.zip file to your formatted microSD card. Do not extract the update.zip file and make sure to place the file in the root of the microSD drive.
    5. Insert the microSD card into the tablet’s memory card reader.
    6. Plug in the adapter and make sure battery capacity is above 30%.
