    I had success with updating on Windows 7 32 bit using the OTG port.
    Someone else mentioned a hiss from the speaker. I am having this same problem, and I also can't get flash going or uninstalled (tried root explorer).
    When people mention wiping the device, what is the process? Are they referring to just a factory settings wipe? I was thinking maybe starting from a wipe would help my sound problem.
    My device is using 11.2.0.6 btw.

    Is anyone else having problems with the music app or gallery app? Is there a fix?

    Huzzah!

    Using the terminal emulator and the OTG alternative, I can report success on my Express Tablet.

    So far, everything seems to run nicely (if not better than before). I'll have to do some further testing to see what, if anything, might have gone wrong, but as it stands, it seems to work excellently.

    I had to go a little round about with doing this, because my computer (A Gateway running Win Vista) didn't want to ask me for device setup on the tablet and doesn't currently have a working SD card slot (it's stopped working for no obvious reason). So I would up using a friends computer, which was a Dell running Win XP. Everything worked exactly as the directions indicated. SO, yeah, I'd call that a successful operation!

    I finally did it!!! Anyone who has Windows 7 64-bit use the VMware Player to make an Windows XP-mode virtual machine. I have a copy of 7 that wouldn't exactly pass "Genuine Validation" so I had to do XP-Mode a different way and it worked!!! Details on how to can be found here... Create an XP Mode for Windows 7 Home Versions & Vista - How-To Geek It feels so good to finally have done this...thanks guys!!!!

    Thank you to all that have helped make the manual update possible! I finally did it on a Win7 32bit since I could not install the correct driver on my Win7 64 bit system. So far this seems so much faster! I am loving it!!!!!

    Still cant get Flash Player to work. No matter what browser I use : Stock,Skifire,Opera i get the "Install "flash pla..."

    I can watch you tube with the youtube app and some pages with Skyfire's built in video function, but I want to use Playon... and it says no flash.
    but flash is in the 2.2 and it's in the file system and it says it will be replaced when i try to download and install the flash app.
    What ver did you get to work and what does it work with?

    I'm going to try replacing 10.2 with the flash version used in Hulu hack (For the Samsung Epic 4G), i believe that version will be able to let you watch a majority of videos thru the browser. It's only a theory, but I believe it may work...

    Success! Updated my sylvania tablet hwver 11.2.0.6. Mine has no auto rotation, but it never did. My WIFI drops out also and only a reboot will bring it back. Other than the WIFI problem it's running perfectly.

    I've had it running for about 2.5 hrs and battery is at 75%. Played Angry Birds Rio for most of that time.

    BTW I used the sdcard burn method, took about 15min.

    So I'm having a "Morning After" moment here despite the victory and I gotta few questions...

    I know they didn't work before, but has anyone tried using 3rd party market apps like Applanet, Blapk Market, and Aptoide to see if they work now?

    Does anyone know how to control the volume when looking at videos, youtube or otherwise?

    Any apps that are deleted, can they be restored by flashing it again or this is it,

    can a factory reset wipe be done in the event a official release comes out?

    I've enabled "Move to SD" option, but it doesn't seem to work.
    I went into build.prop inside /system and opened it up and added a "1" to the option. It is now enabled but when I try to move an app like Angry Birds it says it failed to move it.

    I was wondering the same thing about the win ce since it is on the sylvania netbook.
    Also I noticed you said you had universal root since you updated to the dg2.20. I've tried to root mine and can't. Any pointers on how you got yours rooted would be appreciated, thanks.

    Thanks!!! I ran the 1.5.3 build and it took 2 times but is rooted:) thank you again for the help.
    Also i renamed some of the apps like phone.apk to phone.old and it seemed to speed it up. I know the keyboard is quicker.
