START WITH THE WIKI Introduction to the Pandigital Novel

Please don't make me start deleting, moving, and combining threads by asking whatever comes to mind. There's been a lot of recent development on this device, and a LOT of your questions will have been asked already here. Take 10 minutes and look around before posting a noob question. We love our noobs, but we love them more when they help unnoobing themselves...This has become an epidemic problem here, so now we're going to have to add teeth: look before you ask. If you really think you're the first person to ask about changing the internal micro sd card, or to have problems flashing the device, that means you didn't look, and I am going to issue you an infraction. I won't enjoy it, but it's for the good of the community.

Which hack did you do? You either need to set up ADB and use the adb shell, or you need to put the apk on an sd card and use the installer. I can't remember if the new composite hack has an installer on it, but do you have one on the device?

once it works on the computer you need to get the img to the PDN and input the google id. The thread on that is very good, and the wiki is even better, with pics.

you need to open the msdos prompt separately and run sdk from there so you can see why it's not working.

the img needs to get onto the pdn... you can adb push it there even w/ a mac, right? What about getting a friend with a pc to load the sdk and img and get you an android ID? I would do it and pm it to you, but the gf is quietly threatening to kill me...

Can someone give me step-by-step instructions on how to relash to OEM fw? What is the difference between reflashing and rebooting?
Download the firmware file from Pandigital's site under downloads --make sure you get the whole file.
Some people have had issues with thatput it on an sd card --believe it or not, some people have had problems with that.
It needs to be on the card, not on your computer.
power the pdn ALL THE WAY OFF (hold the switch until the dialogue box comes up and turn it off that way)
--alternatively, you can GENTLY push a paper clip into the reset hole in the tophold up on the volume key, while holding up on it, turn the device on
(if you hit the reset hole, you hold the power and volume asap after that)hold on until you see the android unpack screen.

do you know how to open the command prompt? If you could open the command prompt and run adb.exe rather than just clicking on it, we could see what was going wrong with things...

type adb devices with the pdn attached and on. what do you see? Do youhave adb.exe in your windows path, or are you changing directory to get the command in the directory with adb in it. Then you can type adb remount, at which you can type to push, pull, and adb install apks.

I didn't install anything tricky until I had wifi stable. I installed fw 3 times or so to get there. The best I can tell you is when you're dropping a lot, literally go into setup, turn wifi OFF, wait 15 seconds or so, then turn it back on and be patient while it handshakes.I really, really endorse having no fear, and just (figuratively) bashing the thing. For $100 to replace, you can't hurt it but so much, and BB and Kohl's will take almost anything back. Why not have no mercy? The more you screw it up, the more you learn to fix it.

The mods, including the wikimod, do the best they can, and put a lot of hours in with no pay, and very, very little thanks. I imagine hitting "last" when you get to the middle of a thread isn't all that hard considering you're getting what amounts to tech support and development work from volunteers for free. This is, however, EXACTLY why we don't want to start a new thread every time someone asks the same question that's been asked 3,000 times, and why senior members pick on people who obviously don't search at all, or in some cases don't even look at the posts listed on the first page of the pandigital board... If instead the wiki had to link to 3,000 threads, all the mods would quit, and this would basically turn into a self-serve help site... if anyone would help anyone at that point, that is.

there is a newer consolidated hack, and a couple of good update mods, including nchanterman's. I really, really, really, really suggest you look around here while the thing charges. you have a few options to the same goal.

We prefer you necro threads to avoid clutter. Feel free to revive the ugly market hack... I'm still using it.

"Tipster did some real damage with his misinformation/gimme a screenshot/ROM rip-off campaign"What was that...? I missed it. His contributions to the community are subject to debate, but what did I miss?
