I have a Cruz Tablet (T301) that runs Android 2.2.1. For the longest time, I've tried to fix this matter on my own, but now I've run out of options.

When I get on the internet, my tablet has an interesting favor towards Facebook: not surprising because it comes with an app/bookmark of Facebook by default. I can browse Facebook and share as much as I please as well as talk to my friends to my heart's content. However, if I step outside of Facebook for as short as a second, my tablet kicks me off the internet.

Various options I have embraced to fix this matter. I've already turned off my Wi-Fi, waited for a minute or two, and turned it back on to browse: that didn't work. I even restarted my tablet with the aid of my paper clip that keep handy for situations such as this: that didn't work either. I even became so bold as to perform a factory reset: even then I'm still being kicked off the internet.

I only have one application that allows me to browse the internet on my tablet: Browser, which also came by default. Is there anything else that I haven't tried yet that may aid me in this situation? Is it the application, or the tablet itself? Do I have a virus, and I'm just not aware of it? If I do have a virus, how do I get it fixed?

  • You did a factory reset so I suspect it is the stock ROM. Have you looked into rooting your tablet and flashing a different ROM?

  • No, I have not considered rooting my tablet to flash a different ROM. In fact, I don't even know what that is, let alone how to do it on my tablet. How can I root my tablet to flash a different ROM? Jun 29, 2015 at 22:52

Rather than continue to add comments, I'll post this as an answer. Steps to follow to root your tablet and flash a custom rom:

  1. backup your device
  2. root your device
  3. backup personal data and settings, if any, with titanium backup (you can skip since you did a factory reset)
  4. install clockwork mod recovery
  5. flash with Feyer's Resurrection ROM; seems to be the best supported; no reports of wifi problems; also make sure to read his tips on keeping the T301 working well.

  • The ROM Manager ClockworkMod requires me to have Google Play, which I cannot add to my Cruz T301 because it is not under the list of supported devices x. Jul 2, 2015 at 23:21
  • You can manually install it by putting it's apk file on an SD card and running the apk file. Been out for a week leaving again for a day. Google for clockworkmod apk should find it.
