New Hack Toy - Zenithink ZT-180

Recently I got new hack toy: cheap (well, depends) Chinese Zenithink ZT-180 tablet. This one seem to be (have been) pretty popular and hacker-friendly. Here's data about it:

It seems that I've got vendor model ZT180_G2 (maybe, ZT180_G0).

Button combinations to hold during power on:
  • Home+Power - Upgrade firmware from /sdcard/zt-update/
  • Left arrow (of swing double-button)+Power - Boot with debug kernel from /sdcard/zt-debug/ . Debug kernel is booted and continues with the normal boot process.
  • Right arrow (of swing double-button)+Power - Multiboot support, select one of 3 modes:
    • Android adb - kernel with ADB over USB support
    • Android mass storage - kernel with mass storage USB gadget support (tablet is presented as a mass storage when connected to host)
    • Other OS - WinCE
