- insert SD card into PC
-Travel to http://www.pandigital.net/android
-Choose your model BPDN or WPDN & download the firmware to your SD card. ("make a backup copy")
Direct DLBPDN- http://pandigital.s3...aris_update.dat
- insert SDcard with the new firmware into the powered down PDN.
- Hold the volume up key + the power button until you see the update screen begin.
once the PDN loads you will have the new Android platform OS/UI
*Stay on your PDN & connect to a WiFi Connection*
Travel to http://www.freewarel...apps-installer to download the AppsInstaller or:
After the AppsInstaller is downloaded to your PDN, in the Downloads menu you can simply choose to install the program.
Now you can install Apps from your SD card !!! ;D
*I will update this with links for compatible apps n such as i test them*
Android Open Firmware Notes
The BPDN does not have the "Menu" & "Back" buttons as usual android devices do. Pandigital has bypassed this by using the Power & Vol+ buttons in their place.
I downloaded the AppInstaller online & now i can't find the Download list again to install my app. Open the stock internet browser app "Browser" with the browser open: choose settings/ More/ Downloads. this takes you into your downloads page & you can now select the app from the list you wish to install & you will get the option to install that particular app.
Solid white screen after boot: Press either the power or the Vol+ button. "This is a glitch between the desktop & the android software. It is a android menu that requires you to press either "back" or "menu" to proceed" (seems to be random in frequency)
TuneIn Radio: Fantastic app, it runs great.
Aldiko "E-reader": So far works well and has alot of resources. one possibly avoidable glitch. The reader screen in either orientation is sadly a bit to large for the monitor & text is hidden by the main menu that is always at the bottom.
Skyfire "web browser" This is the PC internet experience on your android device. Ver 2.0 - 2.3 work. 2.3 is a beta & seems to have some issues, i would recommend the previous version.
*Currently this app is the only way I have found to watch online videos*
Solitaire: only Solitaire & Forty Thieves are playable because of not being able to deal. still fun for the 2 games that work =)
Connect4 board game, works great!
