Nothing. I checked the SD card; there's a whole linux file system in there, so its not blank. What do I do?
well that's no good. Should have come with instructions. I'll make sure that's corrected for other customers.
Here's what you do (this will wipe your device, be warned)
1. Turn device off
2. Insert SD card
3. Hold down center dpad ONLY, and while holding it down, power up the device.
4. Wait until you see the 'Firmware upgrade' screen on the device and let go of the dpad.
5. Wait for the process to finish (it will say "Firmware installation complete" or something, I don't remember the exact wording).
6. Take out the SD card
7. Power up the device.
If your device is somehow frozen or won't turn off:
- Instead of using the power button, you can hold down center dpad and RESET with a paperclip, or hold down center dpad and PLUG IN TO CHARGER/COMPUTER.
Let me know how it goes.
