    Hi all!

    I've just got a 7" MID tablet for my birthday which was originally bought from Maplin but was second hand by the time I got it. I'm trying to upgrade the OS if possible, so any help would be great!
    It's got Android 1.6, and comes up with this on boot: wmt1.9 710Cuxw
    The kernal version is 2.6.29-00236-g48dbbb-dirty
    The box says the CPU is VIA8505 and the back of the device says VIA ARM926

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks very much

    Bill
