That's odd, above, because I also got mine for Christmas but only have 2.0. There are a lot of apps I can't use (and that I wan't) because it's too low of a version. :(

But I do agree that I want the source code (I meaning others, I can't do anything with code) so we can get better Android versions.

I recently emailed Pandigital, repeatedly, to get the kernel and/or source code, and keep getting a form letter that my email was sent to their development team. I have been doing this since the device hit the street.

Now I want to ask EVERY SINGLE MEMBER (THIS MEANS YOU) interested in or currently owning a PDN to email customer_service@pandigital.net and/or public_relations@pandigital.net and ask them to release the kernel and/or source code, and if possible to address the possibility of getting the PDN up to Android 2.1.

Feel free to tell them you're a member, and feel free to tell them we're the largest Android Tablet Forum on the web. Gentouch developers are actually POSTING on that board. I would be nice if Pandigital could express similar interest in the novel.


DONE & DONE (I also added a few choice words about TOTAL LACK of acknowledgement or response to CUSTOMER requests for support over the failure of the "official" Pandigital 7 Android Apps installation upgrade (I can't update by either method in the Pandigital Docs and the same problem is being reported by other users).

Potentially good news, an outside company may help put pressure on Pandigital.

I sent an email 2 days ago and I didn't even get the courtesy of a response.

Hi guys, Is there any status update with this? Has anyone found the source code at all ? PND said they would make it available a couple of years ago, still nothing ???

FYI, anyone answering the phone or email has absolutely no ability to help here. They have no influence over anyone who has access.

However, let me just leave this here...

According to that link Pandigital is being liquidated. Gone. Out of business.

Couldn't have happened to a better company, you ask me. These guys could have had something great if they'd only cooperated with the community, instead I'd wager most Pandigital Novel customers steered clear from Pandigital with their next purchase...

Hopefully other companies will take a lesson from this and realize that not only is open a feature, but having a community grow up around your device is a killer app of the best kind. Kill that enthusiasm and you are killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.

Thanks for pointing this out. :good: +1

I couldn't agree more. Refused to support PD with another purchase myself due to their lack of support/source.
