People that root phones use a ROM backup utility to overwrite part of the recovery software so they can save a backup image of the original ROM.Is there something that works similarly for this tablet?DanI can't wait for it to get here...

I dont believe this device has a recovery partition though, youd have to create one and modify the update scripts so they ignore it. Right now the device can update individual parts of the system easily, but to update the entire system it does a full wipe and reinstall.

Boring stuff, but something im working on, care too help?info can be found here.http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Writing_Kernel_Image_to_NAND_Flash
