Getting Started Charging & Turning on your IT Set – The Power Switch

To charge your iT Set simply plug the supplied power supply into the Power Jack on your iT Set and into a suitable electrical power socket.
Your iT Set is equipped with an on-off switch which when pressed will start the operating system (so long as the battery is charged sufficiently or the iT Set is connected to it’s power adapter and suitable power supply).
The System will shut down automatically when the battery is low.

iT Set V5

The small round power switch is located in the switch group on the top right of the iT Set – see illustration.  To turn on the iT Set, simply press the power switch and the system will start the operating system.  While starting, you will see the android logo and some startup screens.

iT Set V6

The silver square iT Set V6’s power switch is located on the lower left side of the Set, simply press the switch to start the operating system.  You will see startup screens and the android logo as the operating system starts up.

iT Set V7

The iT Set V7 has both a Power Lock which is located on the lower right side of the Set, it is a little toggle switch that needs to be flipped down to the bottom of the set to allow you to turn the set on.  With the Power Lock in the ON position press the power switch  on the middle right of the set to start the operating system, you will see startup screens and the android logo as the operating system starts up.

 

iT Set’s buttons

The iT Set’s physical buttons and soft buttons offer a variety of functions and shortcuts.
Back Button: Opens the previous screen you were working in. If the onscreen keyboard is open, closes the keyboard.
Menu Button:            Opens a menu with items that affect the current screen or application.
Home Button: Opens the Home screen. If you’re viewing the left or right extended Home screen, opens the central Home screen.
Press & Hold Home Button:            Opens the most recently used applications screen.
Power Button: Turns off the screen.
Press & Hold Power Button Opens a menu with options for Airplane mode, for Silent mode, and for powering off the iT Set.

Turning Off Your iT Set

The Power button also operates as a switch to place your IT Set into suspend mode and also to shutdown and turn off the set.  To put the iT Set in suspend mode simply click the Power button once and the screen will go dark as the set goes into suspend mode.
To shut down and turn off the iT Set, hold the Power button down for three to five seconds and a popup will give you the option to “Power off” the iT Set.  Other options on the power off vary, either giving you the option to “Suspend” the iT Set V5, or on the V6 & V7 to put the iT Set in “Silent mode” to silence the set, or “Airplane mode” to disconnect all wireless communications.

To Suspend Your iT Set

Simply click the power switch and the iT Set will be suspended and the screen will go blank.  The iT Set uses much less power when in suspend mode.  If you will not be using the iT Set and wish to save your batter it is better to Power off the iT Set.

Unlocking Your iT Set from Suspend Mode.

When your iT Set is in suspend mode you need to slide the lock bar up to unlock the set to use any applications.  Simply place your finger on the padlock in the green circle on the lower right side of the screen and slide it up on the surface of the screen with a smooth motion.  The slider bar will follow your finger until it reaches a green dot and unlocks the screen.  Alternatively click the Home button.

Locking Your iT Set With A Passpattern

To secure your iT Set with a custom lock instead of the slider bar, on the any home screen touch the Menu icon which is in the top right corner of the screen  (or press the iT Set’s Menu button).

  • Select the “Settings” option
  • Select “Location & security”
  • Select “Set unlock pattern”
  • Follow the instructions on the screen to draw a Passpattern.

To unlock your iT Set simply connect the dots you chose as your custom Passpattern.
To remove the Passpattern, go back through the “Settings” and “Location & Security” options and uncheck the “Require pattern” option. You will be prompted to enter the original Passpattern before it is removed.
To change the Passpattern simply choose “Change unlock pattern” and enter your new pattern after confirming the original pattern.

Controlling Your iT Set’s Touch Screen

Your iT Set is equipped with a touch screen.  Make sure your fingers are clean when using the iT Set!  You can use a stylus on resistive iT Set screens, sliding your finger nail gently also works, however be careful not to scratch the screen.
The main way to control the iT Set is by using your finger to manipulate icons, buttons, menu items, the onscreen keyboard, and other items on the touchscreen.  The manner in which you touch icons and applications determines how they will react:
Smooth even movements and gentle touching of the screen is necessary.  Do not press hard on the screen.  Do not use any sharp objects on the screen as they will damage the screen.  Keep the screen clean and protected from being scratched or damaged.
Applications interact by touching them in different ways.  As a general rule, the following finger movements are utilized for controlling applications:
Tap (Touch once & quickly release) launches application, opens file or types letters from the onscreen keyboard. The application or key will highlight when you touch it
Touch & Hold. To open a menu for customizing the Home screen, touch an empty area on the Home screen until the menu opens.
Slide Fast: Scrolls fast – to stop scrolling touch screen
Touch Hold & Drag allows you to move application on a home screen to the trash can (this does not remove the application it simply removes the icon representing the application) or to slide the unlock bar. You drag icons on the Home screen to arrange them.
Swipe or Slide scrolls a list or turns a page when you quickly move your finger across the surface of the screen without pausing.  To switch to different home screens slide your finger sideways across the screen.   Sliding faster makes a list scroll faster (you can tap it to stop a list scrolling)
Double-Tap quickly to zoom in and zoom out on a webpage, map or other application.
Pinch some applications (such as Maps, Browser, and Gallery), allow you to zoom in and out by placing two fingers on the screen at once and pinching them together (to zoom out) or spreading them apart (to zoom in).
Turn, you can also change the screen’s orientation by simply holding the iT Set sideways.

Home Screens

Your iT Set has a number of screens or Home pages that are like different “desktops”.  You can customize these screens to launch different applications or to show widgets for applications such as clocks and calendars. You can also change the wallpaper.
To add icons to launch applications or features click the “Menu”  button then select the Add cross  on the left side of the menu that pops up on the bottom of the screen.   Alternatively touch and hold any part of the home screen where there is no icon and a menu opens where you can choose what type of element you wish to add to the home screen.

Shortcuts Add shortcuts to applications, a bookmarked webpage, a favorite contact, a destination in Maps, a Gmail label, a music playlist, and many other items. The shortcuts available depend on the applications you have installed.
Widgets Add any of a variety of miniature applications (widgets) to your Home screen, including a clock, a music player, a picture frame, the Google search bar, a power manager, a calendar that shows upcoming appointments, and a News & Weather widget. You can also download widgets from Android Market.
Folders Add a folder where you can organize Home screen items, or your files.
To move an item on the Home screen touch and hold for a few seconds when the highlight goes off you can drag the icon around the screen or to the trash can which appears on the right of the screen..  To remove an item from the Home screen simply dump it in the trash, it will only remove the icon from the screen, the application will not be removed.

Top Menu

The top of the screen shows a status bar. On the left is a Home button  which when touched leaves the application and takes you back to your home screen (On the iT Set V7 the home button is a few icons in on the right side).   On the right of the status bar you will find the Menu button  which accesses additional custom menus for applications or for the system if you are on a home screen.  The little arrow  next to the Menu button on the right is a back-space  or Return button.  The speaker volume control and time are next to that and a battery indicator next to the volume control.  In between these and the Home button on the left are Notification icons.

Working with menus

There are two kinds of Android menus: options menus and context menus.

Options menus

Options menus contain tools that apply to the activities of the current screen or application, not to any specific item on the screen. You open options menus by pressing the Menu button . Not all screens have options menus; if you press Menu on a screen that has no options menu, nothing happens.  Selecting the Menu when you are on a home screen allows you to Add icons and folders to your home screen, change the wallpaper, search online, access notifications and enter the Settings application for setting up your iT Set.
Some screens have more options menu items than can fit in the main menu; you touch More to open a menu of additional items.

 

Options menus contain items that apply to the current screen or to the application as a whole.

Touch to open more menu items.

Context menus

Context menus contain tools that apply to a specific item on the screen. You open a context menu by touching & holding an item on the screen. Not all items have context menus. If you touch & hold an item that has no context menu, nothing happens.
When you touch & hold some items on a screen, a context menu may open and offer a list of options.

You do not have to setup a Google Account to use your iT Set unless you choose to use the Google Applications on the iT Set such as Gmail, Google Talk, Google Calendar, and other Google Applications and to download applications from Android Market.  You can also install applications manually without going through the Google Market.
When you sign in, you’re prompted to enter your username and password, using the onscreen keyboard.
When you sign in to Google you’re asked whether you want to take advantage of a number of Google services, such as the Google location service which provides applications such as Google Search, with your approximate location, or the Google back up service which allows you to save some of your data and information on Google servers.  Recognize that this gives Google access to your information.  You can backup your data onto local PC’s and servers.

Connecting To Internet

Your iT Set is equipped with WiFi.  Wi-Fi is a wireless networking technology that can provide Internet access at distances of up to 100 meters, depending on the Wi-Fi router and your surroundings.
To use Wi-Fi on your iT Set, you access a wireless access point, or “hotspot.” Some hotspots are open and you can simply connect to them. Others are hidden or implement other security features, so you must configure your iT Set so it can connect to them.
There are numerous systems for securing Wi-Fi connections, including some that rely on secure certificates or other schemes to ensure that only authorized users can connect.
To connect to the internet click the Settings application (or the Menu Button & select the Settings option).  Select the “Wireless & networks” option and make sure the Wi-Fi option is checked.
Your iT Set will automatically search for and identify and remember WiFi networks and list them on the “Wi-Fi settings” section, select this option to see what networks are available or manually add a network with the “Add Wi-Fi network” option.  You must add a Wi-Fi network to connect to it, if it does not broadcast its name (SSID)
When you connect to a Wi-Fi network, the iT Set obtains a network address and other information it needs from the network, using the DHCP protocol.
Touch a network in the list to connect to it. If the network is open, you are prompted to confirm that you want to connect to that network by touching Connect. If the network is secured, you’re prompted to enter a password or other credentials.
You will be prompted for the Network SSID and the type of security the network uses (WEP, WPA/WPA2 PSK/ 802.1x Enterprise).  If you do not understand these options it is necessary to consult with the network administrator to find out how they setup the network and what the password is.
To setup your iT Set with a fixed IP address and other advanced settings, press Menu and touch Advanced and specify the parameters.
Any WiFi credentials that you entered are saved, so you are connected automatically the next time you come within range of this network if your WiFi is turned on.

The top of the screen displays the time since you were last connected to a charger or, if you’re currently connected to one, how long you were running on battery power before you connected to a charger.
Then each application or service that used battery power during that time is displayed, in order of the amount of power they used.
Touch an application in the Battery Use screen to learn details about its power consumption.
Different applications offer different kinds of information. Some applications include buttons that open screens with settings to adjust power use.

Taking Care of the Battery

iT Set’s contain lithium polymer batteries. Only the charger supplied with the iT Set.
Charge and fully discharge the battery once per month.
After a complete discharge startup time is longer.
Damage caused by miss use of lithium polymer battery is not covered by the warranty.

Connecting to virtual private networks

Virtual private networks (VPNs) allow you to connect to the resources inside a secured local network, from outside that network. VPNs are commonly deployed by corporations, schools, and other institutions so that their users can access local network resources when not on campus, or when connected to a wireless network.
There are numerous systems for securing VPN connections, including some that rely on secure certificates or other schemes to ensure that only authorized users can connect. For information about installing secure certificates, see  “Working with secure  certificates” on page 67.
To configure VPN access from your iT Set, you must obtain the details from your network administrator.
To add a VPN
Press Home press Menu, and touch Settings, to open the Settings
Touch Wireless & networks > VPN settings.
Touch Add VPN.
Touch the type of VPN to add.
In the screen that opens, follow the instructions from your network administrator to configure each component of the VPN settings.
Press Menu  and touch Save.
The VPN is added to the list on the VPN settings screen.
To connect to a VPN
1. Open the Settings application.
2. Touch Wireless & networks > VPN settings.
The VPNs you’ve added are listed on the VPN settings screen.
3 Touch the VPN to which you want to connect.
4 In the dialog that opens, enter any requested credentials and touch Connect.
When you’re connected to a VPN, you receive an ongoing notification in the Status bar. If you are disconnected, you receive a notification that you can use to return to the VPN settings screen so that you can reconnect to it. See  “Managing  notifications” on page 27.
To disconnect from a VPN
Open the Notifications panel and touch the ongoing notification for the VPN connection.
To edit a VPN
1 Open the Settings application.
2 Touch Wireless & networks > VPN settings.
The VPNs you’ve added are listed on the VPN settings screen.
3 Touch & hold the VPN whose settings you want to edit.
4 In the dialog that opens, touch Edit network.
5 Edit the VPN settings you want.
6 Press Menu  and touch Save.
To delete a VPN
1 Open the Settings application.
2. Touch Wireless & networks > VPN settings.
The VPNs you’ve added are listed on the VPN settings screen.
3 Touch & hold the VPN you want to delete.
4 In the dialog that opens, touch Delete network.
Touch OK in the dialog that asks you to confirm you want to delete the VPN.

Working with secure certificates

If your organization’s VPN or Wi-Fi networks rely on secure certificates, you must obtain the certificates (in files that conform to the PKCS #12 standard) and store them in your iT Set’s secure credential storage, before you can configure access to those VPN or Wi-Fi networks on your iT Set.
If your network administrator instructs you to download the certificates from a website, you’re prompted to set a password for the credential storage when you download the certificates.
To install a secure certificate from the SD card
1 Copy the certificate from your computer to the root of the SD card (that is, not in a folder).
2 Press Home press Menu, and touch Settings, to open the Settings application.
3 Touch Location & security.
4 Touch Install from SD card.
5 Touch the file name of the certificate to install.
Only the names of certificates that you have not already installed on your iT Set are displayed.
6 If prompted, enter the certificate’s password and touch OK.
7 Enter a name for the certificate and touch OK.
If you have not already set a password for your iT Set’s credential storage, you’re prompted to enter a password for it twice and then touch OK.
You can now use the certificate that you installed when connecting to a secure network. For security, the certificate is deleted from the SD card.

Adding and removing accounts

You can add multiple Google Accounts and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync accounts. You may also be able to add other kinds of accounts, depending on your applications. Some you can add in the Accounts & Sync settings, as described in this section.

Others you add using an application that works with those kinds of accounts; for example, you can add IMAP and POP3 email accounts with the Email application.
To add an account
To add some accounts, you may need to obtain details from an IT support representative about the service to which the account connects. For example, you may need to know the account’s domain or server address.
1 Open the Accounts & Sync Settings screen.
You can do this in Contacts by pressing Menu  and touching Accounts, or directly in the Settings application.
The Accounts & Sync Settings screen displays your current sync settings and a list of your current accounts.
Touch Add account.
2 Touch Add account.
3 Touch the kind of account to add.
4 Follow the onscreen steps to enter the required and optional information about the account.
Most accounts require a username and password, but the details depend on the kind of account and the configuration of the service you’re connecting to.
5 Configure the account.
Depending on the kind of account, you may be asked to configure what kinds of data you want to sync to the iT Set, name the account, and other details.
When you’re finished, the account is added to the list in the Accounts & Sync Settings screen. Depending on how you configured the account, email, contacts, and other information start syncing to your iT Set.
To remove an account
You can remove an account to delete it and all information associated with it from your iT Set, including email, contacts, settings, and so on.
You can’t remove the first Google Account you signed into on the iT Set, except by deleting all personal information from your iT Set.
1 Open the Accounts & Sync Settings screen.
You can do this in Contacts by pressing Menu and touching Accounts, or directly in the Settings application.
The Accounts & Sync Settings screen displays your current sync settings and a list of your current accounts.
2 Touch the account to delete.
3 Touch Remove account.
4 Confirm that you want to remove the account.

Configuring account sync and display options

You can configure background data use and synchronization options for all of the applications on your iT Set. You can also configure what kinds of data you synchronize for each account. Some applications, such as Gmail and Calendar, have their own synchronization settings.
Some applications, such as Contacts, Gmail, and Calendar, can sync data from multiple applications. Others sync data only from the first Google Account you sign into on your iT Set, or from an account associated specifically with that application.
For some accounts, syncing is two-directional; changes that you make to the information on your iT Set are made to the copy of that information on the web. Your Google Account works this way. Other accounts support only one-way sync; the information on your iT Set is read-only.
To configure general sync settings
1 Open the Accounts & Sync Settings screen.
You can do this in Contacts by pressing Menu  and touching Accounts, or directly in Settings (press Home, press Menu  and touch Settings)
The screen displays your current sync settings and a list of your current accounts.

 

 

Touch the account to configure.
Some or all information from this account is configured to sync automatically with your iT Set.
No information from this account syncs automatically with your iT Set.

* indicates that some or all of an account’s information is configured to sync automatically with your iT Set.
 indicates that none of an account’s information is configured to sync automatically with your iT Set.

  • Check or uncheck Background data to control whether applications and services can transmit data when you are not working with them directly (that is, when they are running in the background).

If you uncheck this option, Gmail stops receiving new mail, Calendar stops syncing events, and so on, until you touch the Refresh menu item or send an email.

  • Check or uncheck Auto-sync to control whether changes you make to information on the iT Set or on the web are automatically synced with each other.

For example, when this option is checked, changes that you make in Contacts on the iT Set are automatically made in Google Contacts on the web.

If you uncheck this option, you may be able to use an application’s tools to sync data manually. See  “To sync information manually” on page 106.
To sync information manually
1 Open the Accounts & Sync Settings screen.
2 Touch the account whose data you want to sync.
3 Press Menu      and touch Sync now.
To change an account’s sync settings
1 Open the Accounts & Sync Settings screen.
2 Touch the account whose sync settings you want to change.
The Data and Synchronization screen opens, displaying a list of the kinds of information the account can sync.
Checked items are configured to sync to your iT Set.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3 Check or uncheck the kinds of information you want to sync to the iT Set.
Unchecking an option does not remove the information from your iT Set; it simply stops it from being kept in sync with the version on the web. To remove the information previously synced for the account, you must remove the account.

Trouble Shooting Section

Improving Performance & Preventing Freezing

If the performance is slow on any menu items or applications, you may have too many applications running in the background.  Regularly run an Advanced Task Killer to shut down unnecessary applications.

Memory Leaks

You could also be running an application that has a memory leak. Memory leaks are caused when programmers forget to de-allocate memory segments their application uses.  Each time you run the application it blocks off segments of your memory and slows the system down.  When you power off and re-boot the iT Set it will clear the memory again.

Frozen System

If an application freezes your iT Set and you cannot get any response even when you press the Power button for many seconds, you can press the Reset button with a paperclip.  Alternatively unplug the iT Set and let the battery run down and it will shut off when the battery is flat. When you connect it back up the operating system will often recover from the freeze.  Make sure you remove the application that caused the system to freeze.

Device will not switch on?

Connect the charger, check battery charge. 

Flashing Screen

Flat battery, connect to charger.

No sound

Check volume setting
Check if music file is damaged.
