Ainol NOVO 7 Aurora II and ELF II FAQ
3. Some of apps I am using on my Android Phone don’t run on Aurora II and ELF II . Why?
The system and setting on tablet and phone are not exactly the same, some apps which are specially design for Android phone will cause dead or no response of tablets. The most reliable way to install apps is to dowload apps apk into your PC or micro-SD card, and then installs the apps in the file manager.
4. When charging my Aurora II ( ELF II ) while the tablet is turned off, the tablet seems to get hot. Why? Is theere a fix?
This is a bug in the original firmware , and has been fixed by firmware upgrade 0625. You can download this new firmware from our website.
5. The spec of Aurora II claims it has 16GB storage and 1GB RAM. How come I only see about 13GB storage and 800MB RAM available?
The way to caculate the capacity on Flash memory, TF card, U disk and hard disk is same. 1K is equal to 1024 byte; 1M is equal to 1024K while 1G is equal to 1024M. So the standard capacity should be 14.8G. Then it would take 800M to 1G for ROM space. The system of the device will also take some storage space, which is why the storage left 13G only.
