Help With Secrets of Mysterious Island Puzzle

I can't for the life of me figure out which way the tiles go once you put them in that device on the beach. I have the walk through and it still makes zero sense. Has anyone gotten this far? I'm stuck until I can do this. Grrr

It's kinda tricky.

There are two sets. A set of 6 that go along the top and right. The set of 9 goes in the other spots.

Basically its addition art (like addition tables). A row and column add up to form a cell.

For example:
You have a vertical line somewhere on the top row and a horizental line somewhere on the right column. Where these two join/intersect they make a +.

It took me like 20 minutes to get it right.

I'm now stuck on the part where you're supposed to make a picture with blue paint.

Here's the solution if you're still stuck (you might need to save it to Paint and then rotate the image so it'll match the one on the iPod):

I've found this game impossible without a walkthrough. Also, sometimes when I pull apart combined items - like the fire, I'm left with ? marks and not the actual icons of the items.

I'm about 3/4 way through and for some reason the game is crashing lots. It's also lagging in response when i touch forward on my arrows.

Oh and can someone please help me with "jep the painter" bit. I've given the paint to the other monkey, and I gather I'm supposed to "paint" but there ain't no hand or touch target to do that anywhere, so essentially I'm stuck...even with the walkthrough.

It seems really buggy right now?
