And I mean I am a REAL novice I have never hacked or rooted anything but I am willing to learn especially if I can get a bunch of the android things.........so please let me know I'll check back here tomarrow....and thank you very much for your help who ever you are.....Kev

    Pandigital offer an "Open Platform" version of android that turns the tablet into what is should be. There is no market, but it allows for the additon of many programs and other ereaders.

    You might want to think of what you want to do with the rig when you are finished, then pick a package that suits your desire. Most of the differen firmwares also have their own failings so there again know what you want to end up with.

    Introduction to the Pandigital Novel - Wiki is a wiki on the pandigital with way more information than you probably want to dig through, but it will help you know the options available etc.

    I am using a firmware that was discovered a couple days ago and am quite impressed with it. It fixes some of the problems that have plagued the pandigital all along.

    As above, it is a fairly simple step to change firmwares and the pandigital is fairly hard to brick (Make unuseable).

    well this is a nightmare I think I got everything right but when I take out the internal card and put the sd card in and hold down the two buttons here is what happens....the little droid dude comes on with the progress bar and it stops puts up a rectangle shaped sign with an excalmation point in it like this ! and from there it just freezes and the only way to do anything after that is to reset it....also when i go to get online i can see where the open platform for the white pan is in the directory you know when you type in pandigital and all of the choices show up below it so you can choose what to do...well all opf that stuff is in there..... I did everythign exactly like it said but it isnt doing it right...........any suggestions? thanks for listening kev

    blanny431- I had a PDN that refused to update via an sd card for about 2-3 flashes. I had to use the pandigital site and flash over usb. Then when the newer roms came out for some reason it started to flash from the sd cards. Check out slatedroid- they have a huge pandigital forum with lots of info. As a reader it is great. As a learning android tablet it was very good. To surf the net it was too slow for me, but it was a lot of fun. I am 52 years old and yes, you can still learn new tricks. All you need to do is your reading (several times) and follow the mod directions. If I can do it, so can you! Good luck.

    As far as I know when you flash you get rid of everything. You should be able to redownload them without any problem.

    That is correct. If you are up and running again, you can re-download them without a problem.
