    As this is a tablet and not a phone most here will probably not be familar with this device. Some of us are always up to a challenge though.

    Has it ever booted?
    Are you familar with the Android SDK?
    Do you have a windows computer?
    Do you have other options in getting this resolved?

    this may take some time to sort through...so bear with us.

    And welcome to our forum!

    [ROM] Zenithink ZT180 Official Firmware is a thread on our sister forum that may help.

    For anyone interested in know, it looks like Universal Androot or going and using a superuser.apk and the adb shell that comes with the SDK kit will root this device. Basically, if you have rooted your phone, you can root this tablet, replace the rom, etc.

    My guess is this arrived in a non-bootable state and we just need to flash a new OS onto it and then Colin will be good to go.

    The Android Software Developer Kit (SDK) is used by app developers to work with the phone on their projects. It comes with a tool called the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) that lets you use the command line on your computer to send commands to the phone. Windows is needed to load this software, which is why I asked about Windows.

    Is the tablet just sitting there or is it trying to reboot, failing, then trying again? If it is just rebooting over and over the battery might be low.

    Can you think of anything that might have changed that may have caused this problem?

    There isn't a recovery tool like with the phones on this tablet.
    Did you create an account on our sister forum? I've started poking around there looking for assistance.

    I'm still poking around, and created a thread here for you. Feel free to make an account and join that thread too. This may take a day or so but I think we'll get this figured out for you.

    Here is that thread:

    same problem...

    My new adroid tablet I received for Christmas has done the same thing. I have read some of the replies, but don't understand as I am not that technologically trained. Luckily mine is less than 45 days old, I may still be able to get a refund through ebay, but what a hassle! Any clues? Does anyone know where I could send this for repair?
