    i dont have any experience with this specific tablet but the good thing about android is there is alot of over lab with devices so the first thing i would do is try and root it with either universal androot or z4root if those dont work try and finding a specific root method for your tablet. If you cant root it there is still stuff you can do like change the home launcher i recommend adw or tag home. you should also download and app called app manager by amazing droid that will allow you to back up all of your installed apps to your sdcard. but the biggest tip i can tell you is just messing with it like if there is something you want it to do search and see if you can make it do it. because android devices can do mostly anything you wish. also sense it is running 2.1 install skyfire browser

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have already rooted my tablet with UniversalAndRoot. I was able to dump and extract update.img from mtd5 block device.
    Now I'm in the process of getting familiar with the update image. :)

    Good news. I was able to dump and modify the system.img from the device.
    - Removed stock applications.
    - Root the device (latest su, busybox).
    - Installed sqlite binary to support Titanium Backup.

    I plan to create blog with the how-to.
