    They have released another rom from the manufacture it isn't an update to froyo but just application changes since boarders books changed. I can post that one too if anyone wants it.

    at least i'm not the only one working on this god forsaken tablet! i've flashed a few roms to it, and haven't been able to get much working. cant seem to get the system.img to open properly, however i've dumped the update.img from the device and put it up here. i've had to use it repeatedly to revert back to stock(even though i cant seem to access the system.img, it works fine for reinstalling). also, rkandroidbatchupgrade works with the tablet, after finally figuring out how to get it into the right mode.

    how did you go about dumping your system.img in a way that you were able to open it?

    MASSIVE EDIT: got the system.img issue figured out, long story short, i've got market. still no root, but this fixed my biggest gripe with the system. i'm uploading the image now

    EDIT: here ya go

    you can only do a soft root from what i know so far on these devices using universal androot, you can add rom manager and clockworkmod also and (apk installer if u want to add files that don't require a rooted device). I have also added android market and appplanet, i use file explorer to gain access to my internal and sd card. all has work well.

    these addon are good if u want to play certain games, or add on some other stuff...like android market. the applanet i did not have to root to add that. just transfer your apk files to your device and install, u need ur file explorer and apk installer thats all.

    The drawback to this whole issue with the soft root is if u want to use certain programs, games, ect u have to do a soft root each time u boot up your tablet.

    p.s i have tryed adding (flash for 21 apk) aka flash player 10 for 2.1 . It doesn't seem to work on this device, not sure if it has something todo with the permissons on the plugin or ect, but i'm no educated tech hacker so i not able to fiqure that one out yet. lol. hope this helps someone with their new nextbook6.


    ps if the update from nextbook crashes your slideme. reinstall the program from the nextbook website and transer the files from your computer, the update has known issue of corrrupted file or imcomplete and crashes the slideme.
