    From everything I've heard, the TC970 is stuck at 2.2. Unfortunate, but it's basically a budget tablet - even if they could upgrade the OS, they seem to be devoting their resources to the Le Pan II.

    Good luck with the rest of us dinosaurs, and return soon if that's a big turn off for you.

    [QUOTE=dctab;175200]Le Pan told me that the TC 9-70 is unfortunately NOT upgradeable.



    I'm wondering if this is true or a bunch of baloney...They had been telling owners that the upgrade would be coming, and they were going to skip Gingerbread and Honeycomb and the upgrade would be ICS, and then they turn around and say that there will be no upgrade.....right around the time that the Le Pan II is announced....coincidence? I think that they realized that if ICS was available on the TC970 it would steal sales from the newer (and more expensive) LePan II.

    A custom 2.3 ROM would be very doable for someone with the time and experience. Unfortunately, I have neither.

    I don't know, but clearly lepan isn't going to provide the upgrade. So even if it is technically possible, is there anyone with both the expertise and the time who will?

    I think this is true only so far as Le Pan is concerned. It should be possible to root the unit and then install a new ROM on it. CM9 is apparently looking good for some tablets. If CM9 is like CM7 (for phones) then it may also work well on different tablets.
    I don't own a Le Pan TC970 but I have no doubts that it is updateable. I think Le Pan is just taking the SONY tactic. Release a unit, then sell another slightly better a few months later, and then again a few months later. Sony made Billions doing this because people kept buying the newest thing.
    They were selling the first radio only walk man here in the US when they were selling the Radio/CD players over in Japan, that's how far behind the US was in sales.

    I don't remember where I saw it, it may have been here somewhere but the CM team is working on CM9 for tablets, so if your really interested in a updated ROM for this tablet do a search for CM9.
    And by the way, CM9 is IceCreamSandwich.
    I would bet a pay check that ICS would run fine on these tablets, you may have to do without some of the flash and fancy, but I believe it can otherwise run on these without issue.

    This is the article I read about CM9, http://www.androidpolice.com/2012/01...lay-with-soon/
    CM7 as a phone ROM seems to run several different different phones in its native state, CM9 may work the same way.
    Here is the video from the article.

    Androidphonefan, yes, the Le Pan TC970 is rootable, pretty easily too. There's a thread at XDa developers with the details and tools you need - I did it this weekend, and am enjoying the options you open with rooting.

    There's a group at XDA trying to get some option, and a version of CWM is in alpha testing phase. From what I read, CM7 should be doable, maybe even CM9 someday.

    Le Pan has a split personality, while the Tech Support seems to be quite good, they are apart from the manufacturing team; things as simple as Changelogs for firmware updates are not available even.

    Development is based on their facilities in China, near Hog Kong; support, I would guess might be located in the USA.

    Word about the LPII is that rooting it is pretty difficult, people are trying, but it's locked tight, specially after the LPI adb drivers leaked, allowing rooting for that model.

    No, that page is out to lunch, unfortunately.

    What they are describing is a firmware update, the file linked in their post is :

    Code:
    http://lepantablet.com/goto/http://www.supportsyncfiles.com/lepan/firmware/Firmware_4626_LePan_TC970.zip
    ^^----- The is really odd, but will redirect you to the Support area at Le Pan itself, the manufacturer. And it will dowload the 4626 version of their firmware. The latest one out, officially released, but running Android 2.2 Froyo, as Le Pan refuses to provide users with any upgrade path.

    You want a better alternative? Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread is now in Beta. See this thread.

    :: Le Pan TC970 (CM7 Beta) ::: Archos 101T (UrukDroid) ::: Palm Pre2 (webOS 2.2) ::: HP Touchpad (webOS 3, CM9) ::
