    I bought a Viewsonic Viewpad 10 assuming i would be able to upgrade the Android version.
    I had gone through the process of installing Android 2.2 from the unofficial android-x86 project. Was a new experience for me starting from scratch. It went in fine. But for some bizarre reason the physical buttons didn't work after that. So with no back button working on Android 2.2 I had to keep plugging in a keyboard to hit escape!!! not ideal :-/

    So i was very excited to find your post Rckybobby, and last night put in the official Viewsonic 2.2 version. Went in very smoothly....however I STILL don't have a back button!!!? Am i missing something really really obvious here? I hope so, any clues anyone?

    The back button is the home button, and if you press and hold the home button it takes you to the home screen. You can always hit the reset button on top next to the fan, it doesnt erase your settings it just resets the hardware.

    thats because they cant include the Google apps in with their updates because of legal reasons, if you want the standard Google apps you have to add them yourself.

    The reset will not affect the operating systems, it is only to restore factory settings like the screen calibration.

    I do not know how to solve the top bar problem, but why you want to stay on the 2.2, you can now upgrade to 3.2.

    Forget the Viewsonic. I contacted them, they do not have any plan to upgrade the android for the Vpad 10.

    It's easy .. the same way that you used to upgrade to 2.2.
    You just need to download the 3.2 iso from the following link:

    android-x86-3.2-RC2-tegav2.iso - android-x86 - Android-x86 3.2-RC2 live and installation iso - An open source project to provide android support on x86 - Google Project Hosting

    Note: keep in your mind that we are talking about the Viewsonic viewpad 10 dual boot (windows 7 + Android), not viewpad 10s or viewpad pro or any other viewsonic products.
