Go over to the 9" thread and look for terminander's fw. He rooted it and added market I believe.

Jeff....Jeff....Jeff...
The search tool works wonders as there is more than enough information and solutions to go around for everyone.

That said:
Start here: http://www.slatedroi...eltablet-users/ (yes, the main announcement at the top of the forum you posted this in that reads "ATTN: Pandigital Novel/Tablet Users"

Then

You can find some "patches" here:
http://www.slatedroi...d-enhancements/

Please read up on FW flashing and get to know your novel or you'll be answering the age old question:
Which came first - The WPDN Brick or the App?


Hey Saint,

I have read the introduction instructions in the forums and I feel like some of it is contradicting itself.

So I went to the links (for the enhancements and 'ATTN')you gave Jeff here and under the enhancement link, I read the whole page and found out none of those will support my Pandigital Novel... My firmware ver. is: SKI20_20110321_B_PD_INX7E_ENG_6410POP
That came stock on the device.

Its a build version that dates 3/21... ya'll only have enhancements for up to 3/2. So does that mean, those enhancements by Kewl will not work on my Pandigital that I bought 3 days ago?

Please let me know. I know ya'll dont want noobs to clutter the experts but I have read everything, youtubed everything and I keep coming to a conclusion that these enhancements (rooting, market, netflix etc) wont work for my pandigital because its firmware is newer. Or am i just stupid and am missing something really simple here?

Thanks,
Nate

In the root of the SD card and still zipped with the correct name and a full downloaded file? Are you getting a triangle with an explanation mark?

PD_Novel is the internal card, the external will be SD card.

Did you ever get those apps when you originally flashed? The S20 FW must be flashed twice, the second flash installs the apps that come with the unit. Most prefer to flash from the external SD card as it is easier to do something with if something should go wrong.

I just installed all the enhancements found under kewlguys forum post and they work.

Just had one question. When I accessed the market app, i signed in with my google account, and it went to the home screen. Then the market popped back up and it said it cannot connect to it and it prompts me to retry to connect to the market.

I reinstalled and still same problem. The problem is not signing in, its accessing the market homescreen.

Please Help!

You may want to try to move the date back one day, and try again. Sometimes moving the date backwards and forwards 24 hours several times will get it working. Then download a free app real quick after you get in to lock in the market hack. This information is all over the place, including in the WIKI.

Also, the market hack broke recently, so you may still get no matching content after you get in. If you get that, read the last 5 or 6 pages of Kewlguy's FW thread at the top of the FW development forum on how to fix that problem.

Has anyone rooted the 2012 wpdn? I read somewhere on the forums about changing a file to allow setting a permission and then g2g but I can't seem to find it anymore. If it's something straightforward like that I'd like to know.
