Got this thing a few weeks ago and I'm totally frustrated with it.Finally got it to connect to my wifi but now it keeps freezing up and rebooting itself after I try to open anything. I can't seem to find any useful help online . It seems to be a generic w/camera The build number is 1.7.4Box says it has 1 gig memory but the tablet says 256mb in the "about device" section.Model number says genericFirmware : 1.6Kernel version 2.6.29.00236.g4f8dbbb-dirtyThe back of the tablet says Model No: LY - 706Is there anywhere I can get some detailed info on this thing? I am completely clueless and just want to use it for reading ebooks. Can I upgrade the Andriod version? If so, how and where can I get the info for that?Also, if anyone knows of some really nice apps for opening the following formats for ebooks I would be forever grateful! (.txt, .pdf, .lit, epub ) I have a ton of the .lit books I would like to read but no luck in finding a reader for that for the android, Microsoft Reader usually opens that format.Is there any place I can find a compatible car charger and usb cable for this as well?Any assistance or suggestions will be appreciated =)Thanks!EDIT: Photos as requested

On my Eken M001 I use doc2go for PDF reading, and its actually not bad at all even with large colour books.

It says 1.6 on the firmware. i would love to update/upgrade it but I see a lot of folks having issues with that so I am a bit hesitant. I want to make sure I get the right one for my tablet.
