    I have a new tablet with an ARM cortex A9 processor. It has android 2.2. Is there a way to upgrade to 3.x? If so how?

    I should add that I realize that this is not an upgrade, but a reflash. Also, I have a flytouch 3 tablet, NEC processor.

    That's a single-core processor right? At the risk of giving you bad information but I believe Honeycomb is specifically designed for dual-core processors. There's a chance you can find a version to flash but I doubt it'll be worth it.

    Agree. It's better to make sure that whether the tab supports Android 3.0 or higher. If the hardware is not powerful enough to support advanced OS, the upgrade couldn't be done. And your tab would not work any more.

    It is single core. So could I upgrade to 2.3?

    You should be able to not sure if the tablet is being supported or if you can find a custom ROM.

    There is no dual-core requirement for honeycomb. The issue is google hadnt released homeycomb to the open source community. There was a peview version that some were able to create custom roms out of but they were mostly unstable and not a daily driver. So i am afraid if you want a stable device stick with froyo/gingerbread

    Thanks. I wasn't sure but it seemed to me all honeycomb tabs were dual-core.

    More of a business decision by the tablet builders so they can be competitive but not a requirement

    Take a look at XDA forum. Many hacking gurus share their roms out there. Good luck.
