For anyone who's gotten the Big Lots! Black Friday special tablet you might want to take note that it's not a Rockchip RK2912. It's listed as a M805MC which turns out to be a Amlogic 8726-M3. I am posting here since this is where people go for their Nextbook news :-).

I've done a bit of homework and to avoid dumping a mountain of data just have a look over at xda-developers and check out the info I've gathered.

I show up as Joseph Pruitt on here so for those of you who don't know I'm mascondante.

So have a look. I've even got a link to some source code that may prove helpful. Also do note that like the other Nextbooks there's an issue with Netflix on this one. Hoping they get that sorted out. I still haven't managed to root the thing so any guidance there would be appreciated.

Sure! We've spoke on this at XDA-Developers on this but for those of you who don't know I've got a good bit of info rounded up now. I've let the correct area of slatedroid (http://www.slatedroi...ition-nextbook/) know about it and I've started a thread on it at XDA here: http://forum.xda-dev....php?t=2017866.
