Looks like the kernel may have been modified/updated as it's signed differently ... Could be fixes for the WiFi issues the WPDN has

My question is it still using the same WiFi card and sound chip?

It could be a drop in replacement kernel for the WPDN and it may even fix some issues people have with getting newer versions of Android going


How do you know this? What did you do to be able to get the individual folders and files in the dat file?

It's still the same kernel version though, and I just discovered that the kernel driver for our wireless chip is regarded as "experimental" in versions 2.6.29 thru 2.6.39 with it being broken completely in some of them. Here be the clue...

BUT, may have a different chipset... they coulda got a better price on a different module, only requires a software change since it's a semi-standard piece (mini PCI format USB)

I run iheartradio (newest version) with screen "always on" and I'm only getting 1.5-2 hrs which is somewhat disappointing. \

I would say...when I first got my WPDN, I ran a test and played a movie on it continuously for 5+ hours before the battery died. I regularly use mine to play Pandora connected to my stereo and easily get 6+ hours (Screen off after timeout).

Just noticed that the wifi support is loaded as a module, so relatively easy to swap out, one would think.... but I'm still hammering in my pitons on the vertical kilometer or two at the bottom of the learning curve here.

i have all the same version numbers on my unit, and i'm kind of wondering the same thing about where to look for what's available. the one thing i can say is i was able to gain root access on this stock ROM by simply downloading, installing and running Z4root :) what i'm not sure of is what custom ROMs may be available...

Yes I have googled it to death. The pandigital site lists a R70f200 but doesnt give any specs and the picture they show is a diffrent tablet with a camera and 3 hard buttons at the bottom.
I found info on a r70e200 and it is supposedly a BPDN on the outside and a WPDN on the inside.

Yes i saw that netflix requires 2.2 but I honestly am still not sure what version is on my tablet. At the market on the compatibility step it shows mine as a samsung tablet running 2.1. But i have not found anything on Novel's running 2.1

To my understanding the BPDN runs 1.5 and the WPDN runs 2.0. So I don't know. lol I do know that so far I have loaded 22 apps and all of them have ran, so I am happy with my little cheap tablet. Just perturbed that I don't really know what I have exactly.

Thanks for clearing that up for me, I've been wondering which firmware I should install... Though I installed a black firmware and now it won't install much apps, almost the only good part about it was that it comes with an extra market, which doesn't really have much... I think I installed the jackbox firmware, or another firmware because it said that there was no way to revert back to the original firmware... Someone should really make a compatibility tester that is compatible with my device... I'm not sure what to do exactly...

I'm sort of stuck as well. Ive got an r70f200. Matches the same description as the normal black ones but with more ram (256 vs 128), faster cpu(800 vs 533?), and originally having 2.1 (not totally sure on that one as i bought it 2nd hand). This is an oddball one as it seems to not accept WPDN FW's, even though the hardware would otherwise be capable of running them. I do have Terminander's rooted GAPPS FW on it already, but its just 2.1 rooted. I just know for sure that we do have the above listed specs and apparently the update filenames are different (s64 type vs shxx type) are what keeps us from updating with the WPDN FWs.
