    Hi everyone!
    I've been stuck on the android screen for the past 5 hours.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    scubaboy

    Try turning the tablet completely off for a minute. Hold the on/off button till you get a shutdown message and say yes.

    If that doesn't work, factory reset: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/android-tablet-q/62022-how-do-i-factory-reset-my-tablet.html

    If there are no instructions there specifically for your tablet, try some of the methods for other tablets. One of them will probably work and you won't hurt anything by trying as long as the tablet has a good charge or is plugged in during the reset.

    Now it says:
    "Bootloader v0.03.12-ICS: Starting Fastboot USB download protocol"
    Been that way for 15min.
    any thoughts?
