I've tried everything but all of the upgrades are for the white pandigital novel, can anyone give me a site page or some advice on if i should just keep the older version?

Try posting in the BPDN Subforum to begin with.

Hi mrsburnout. I'm a new member and I wanted to tell I really appreciate your patience. I don't understand why people are double, triple, quadrupling the same postings on the same topics! I'm new here and I see it!

I think you are cool for handling it the way you are. :)

Killing the 'Cell Standby'

-- This applies to Pandigital Novel 9 inch black Multimedia Ereader only --

1> download Reobeet's firmware update and install it - found in forum 'Pandigital Novel 9 inch Tablet' dated '03 March 2011 06:43'.
2> download and install 'Android Hacker' app - found in (? one of the Pandigital forums on this site) by Terminander, dated '09 oct 2011 12:29 pm'.
3> download and install apps,, z4Root by MP4 ver 1.3 or better - superuser by ?.
4> when all are installed the coding found in Terminander will do wonders...

ie..
Code:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
adb shell mv /system/app/Phone.apk /system/app/Phone.OLD
adb shell mv /system/app/TelephonyProvider.apk /system/app/TelephonyProvider.OLD
adb reboot

Using Android Hacker's input/coding screen to type the following code:

mount -o remount rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
mv /system/app/Phone.apk /system/app/Phone.OLD
- the system will give an error message that you can't clear, Reboot the tablet.

----- Then:

mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
mv /system/app/TelephonyProvider.apk /system/app/TelephonyProvider.OLD
Reboot

The above example is how to kill the 'Cell Standby' on the tablet and saves a lot on battery usage.


So just find the ADB coding for the change you want to make and use 'Android Hacker' to input the code.
