While I'm working out what do do after bricking the Tabex7 (72 hours after buying, new record for me!) I'd thought to ask if anyone knew if there were specific essential apps from the original install that need to be kept on there? FIrst off, I never got the hwver. I used UniversalAndRoot to root the phone, and Root Explorer to remove apps. I was using EStrongExplorer as well for looking at some new apps and loading those. Gotta head to work, So I'll post what I removed and what I added later today.
