    Hi I just bought a zenithink apad zt 180 and its running android 2.1. Does anyone know if its possible to upgrade to 2.2. Also another quick question what is firmware I keep on hearing things about custom firmware and me being a noob was wondering what that was.

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    The honest answer is "maybe". If ZenithInk releases a 2.2 Android Firmware, I think so. But there are problems with the ZT-180 processor. It is covered in another thread. It will not be able to take advantage of the needed horsepower required for 2.2.

    I hope this does not burst your bubble. The ZenithInk is not a bad tablet. It just is not as great as it could be.

    Sorry for the hijack...but what a diplomatic line. The next time someone says "Matt, you're great" I'll respond with "Yes, but not as great as I COULD be." :eek:
