Hi nick, welcome to the forum. I'm moving your thread to the Android Tablet Q&A section for you, where more people are likely to join the discussion and try to help you. Good luck!

A Sears salesman told me that the 2.3 could not be upgraded. I asked what if you are Linux command line king and he said maybe but not from a cosumer button pushing position. It made me wonder if there is any hardware issues to consider which do make the upgrade not work. As a programmer I would think the new code will not enable functions that would not work on an old device so upgrading would be possible.

Welcome to the forum!

There are 2 ways to upgrade it: OEM updated ROM, or find a custom ROM and install it yourself. If you go with a custom ROM, you will have to find a way to flash it for your tablet.

And yes, 2.X tablets can be upgraded to 4.X with the proper ROM built for the hardware.

The big questions - where to find a ROM that will work for your device. My best advice is to scour Google, here and xda-developers.

If you get a non-oem rom isn't it basically impossible to insure that it does not have malicious code added to it? If there is not a button in the gui on the upgrade to go from 2.3 to higher then I don't see how the average consumer could find it appealing to desire the device.
