  2. I used Method Two and it worked for me. Mr Yomi pls my 10days Spark tablet just started showing something like orange kinda ink at the centre of the screen and it keeps pressing everything that appears at the centre. Pls what can I do?
    Btw the tab didn't fall nor did anyone press it

    • It seems someone press overpress the screen or something heavy rested on the screen mistakenly. You need to take it to Phone Engr to help you check on it but don't do it yourself.

    • Yes of cos, its very possible. Just click 0n the apps you want to buy and It will ask your to pay either with Paypal account or other wise. You should by now have your own paypal acount… if you dont, please open one… its free.

      However, why will you wanna buy paid apps when you can download any paid apps on playstore for free?

    • This will solve your hanging issue
      1. Press the Power and Volume Up buttons and hold them until the phone vibrates.

      2. Now release the buttons, that’s it. The cache partition is already wiped out.
