    My dad just received 2 NextBook3 Android tablets. These are well designed tablets compared to some that I have seen.

    :: Welcome to NextbookUSA.com ::

    The firmware is 1.3.23.eclair.eng.root.20101117.141920

    I have 2 Zt-180 that I have updated the firmware several times successfully, but I can not seem to find any upgrade for this one. It does not have Market, it has some generic market on it. It was made in November, so the site has no firmware update yet.

    Has anyone encountered one of these and have any idea about firmware updates?

    I wondered if I could use the burn tool that I use on the zt-180 and just add the 1030 firmware only to this.

    I certainly hope something is available soon as I am having horrible internet connectivity with this thing. Hoping for a firmware update to help that. If not, im sending it back to the place where purchased.

    The ZT-180 have a burn tool that comes with them for a firmware update. To see what firmware you have go to settings and about phone.

    I have the Next Book 3
    that's the device I was looking for the firmware?

    I checked on nextbookusa.com and they list firmware as coming soon.

    How do I know what firmware is now on my next3?

    Many thanks

    Yes we have still seen no market or roms for this one yet. The root was easy with the same apk that you used, just no market yet. I am still looking, They are about to release version 4 of their NextBook, so maybe then we will see something new.

    I'd be interested in that. This is my 1st android "tablet". I've been the happy owner of an Archos 605 WiFi for over 3 yrs now. I'd like to push this thing a little, but I know it's a limited device.

    I have purchased a nextbook 3 and it was working great. I turned it on and now I have this error message which reads..."Sorry! The applicaltion Email (process com.android.email) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again" I press the foreclose button and then another error message comes up "The process com.google.process.gapps has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again"...when I press the foreclose button, the first error reappears and I cannot use the table at all. I've tried resetting the tablet but that did not work. It does shut off and on. Did anyone else encounter this problem or can someone offer some assistance? Thanks...

    I also get this error message..."Sorry! The process android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. I keep hitting foreclose and the message just reappears...

    Hey guys, have a Nextbook 3 in my hands with the same issue above... FC com.google.process.gapps ... Was looking to either flash a different ROM or fix this.

    Can anyone help?
