I've had an ill fated Viewsonic gTablet for about a year. As released, the gTablet used the Froyo operating system, which was designed for Android cell phones. Rather than continue development, Viwsonic withdrew the tablet from the market and discontinued all support, leaving it a virtual orphan. :eek2:
Fortunately a lot of savvy people discovered that the gTablet OS could be hacked and soon came up with modified versions of Gingerbread and Honeycomb.
I'd installed GtabComb (Honeycomb hack) on my gTablet and was not totally satisfied because it was obviously a work in progress that got abandoned by its developer. :(

Fast forward to yesterday. I installed ALPHA DIRTY-BEAN 4.1.X, by Team DRH, on my gTablet, following the very good instructions given on the xda-developers web site by Ray Waldo. Oh, Happy Day! :joy:
I now have an almost bug free adaptation of Jellybean on my gTablet.

Jellybean is amazing stuff.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

Nice. I've been looking at picking up an inexpensive Android tablet. This just might be what I've been looking for.
