1st I like to say this site is not only very nice but very imformative also. OK...I realize the 9" is relatively new and basically there is nothing outthere (hacks) for it yet but here's the situation. My father bought the 9" Novel from QVC for my mother for Christmas, opened it and worked like it should. He tried updating the firmware only to realize after that he installed the 7" firmware from Pandigital and there is no firmware update for the 9".....oops! Now, the thing wont turn on for nothing...it is completely dead and wont even charge! Did he brick it? Thats what I think. Me having an EVO and flashed phones plenty tried to help but absolutely cannot find anything and am clueless so im guessing he will just have to consider it a loss. Is this the case? Thanks.
