I recently purchased the above tablet based on spending too much time following the bargain alerts thread relating to cheap tablets and secretly been a geek.
Pretty happy with the tablet out of the box, however i can't seem to install some of the more popular apps from play store, Google maps and facebook as an example.
Baseband version 1.0
Kernel Version 3.0.8
I dont know why i cant install the said apps but i'm guessing its something to do with the version of software running on it.
I've been doing a bit of reading up on slatedroid and i may be able to overcome the issue by flashing/rooting the tablet.
This is where my geekness is been challenged, there seems to be all msnner of ways to do this, all which look a bit daunting. People talk about livesuite and CWM as two ways of rooting a tablet, and there are loads of ROMS/firmwares which can be used.....i think, it's just not sitting easy with me how to do it. Is it a matter of just jumping in? There isn't anything on the tablet at the moment which i care about losing.
Has anyone out there tried to do something similiar? Any pointers or tips would be greatly appreciated.
