Possible firmware upgrade NextBook3
My dad just received 2 NextBook3 Android tablets. These are well designed tablets compared to some that I have seen.
:: Welcome to NextbookUSA.com ::
The firmware is 1.3.23.eclair.eng.root.20101117.141920
I have 2 Zt-180 that I have updated the firmware several times successfully, but I can not seem to find any upgrade for this one. It does not have Market, it has some generic market on it. It was made in November, so the site has no firmware update yet.
Has anyone encountered one of these and have any idea about firmware updates?
I wondered if I could use the burn tool that I use on the zt-180 and just add the 1030 firmware only to this.

I certainly hope something is available soon as I am having horrible internet connectivity with this thing. Hoping for a firmware update to help that. If not, im sending it back to the place where purchased.
How do you find your fireware?

The ZT-180 have a burn tool that comes with them for a firmware update. To see what firmware you have go to settings and about phone.
I have the Next Book 3
that's the device I was looking for the firmware?
I checked on nextbookusa.com and they list firmware as coming soon.
How do I know what firmware is now on my next3?
Go to settings, scroll to the bottom and look at the about this device.
Build number 1.3.23.ECLAIR.eng.root.20101117.141920
Kernel version 2.6.25
Firmware version Android 2.1
Do you know what I need to change to access the Android Market for apps?
and How would I do this?
Many thanks for answers
So far I have seen no ways to get the official market on these. I have installed 2 markets other than the original one on the tablets. Applanet and also Sideways
I have found a root z126.96.36.199.apk that will temp root this device I found market installer app and installed market but was unsuccessful at getting it to download
Yes we have still seen no market or roms for this one yet. The root was easy with the same apk that you used, just no market yet. I am still looking, They are about to release version 4 of their NextBook, so maybe then we will see something new.
