I can recommend the procedures on iBeau dot net I have used the ROM upgrade, and the market install procedures and can assure you they are "bear-proof"!
I have followed them, and have an 0827 ROM, and the Android Market installed. Now that I have it, I'm not as excited about the Android Market, as it won't allow me to download some apps because of the VGA restriction. I am supporting the Camangi Market, since it states it will be for "tablet" applications.
BTW, I do not have a stake in Camangi Market, I'm only a user. I prefer to support those that support my hardware.
Well, I actually paid slightly more than $200 for it shipped to Spain, but that price includes a socket adaptor for EU, a screen protector, a stand to use it in a car and a case with a qwerty keyboard inside, so I guess it's a fairly good price. I know it arrived in Spain yesterday, so I guess I will have it at home tonight or maybe tomorrow (unless customs want to know more about it).
I very recently acquired a 10 inch tablet from a UK Amazon supplier (I want to start developing something different), so I installed Dalvik Explorer and pulled up the build
/device details. Follwing is an extract:
General infromation information relating to the the above CPU I found seemed to indicate Cortex 7? Not Cortex 9A as described by the seller. This does not look like a Cortex 9a; if you could confirm this I would be grateful, as then I can take it up with Amazon an the vendor.
The unit Also cannot load Google Chrome for Android even though it is running android 4.03. Other than that the unit is quite nice.
