    Hello again, all. I purchased this tablet about a year ago, and concerned about age of the OS
    Tablet info:
    RCA VikingPro
    model# RCT6303W87M7
    android version 6.0
    Security patch Aug 5 2017

    I'm concerned about the age of the OS and security patch. Is there reason for concern? Is it possible to update to a more modern OS, or is 6.0 acceptable? Thanks again for your kind help.

    If RCA doesn't provide a firmware update, then there's nothing to do. Personally, I wouldn't be all that concerned about it anyway. Smartphones are more attractive targets than an old tablet.

    What about custom ROM, check XDA for custom ROM for this model

    @EricaR The tablet isn't popular enough for a custom ROM.
