It can probably be updated if someone has the know-how, as other people seem to be running Froyo on the same platform.

I made a mistake downloading the firmware not realizing the firmware loaded on my new pandigital was newer. Only problem was that it crashed every once in a while to a white screen. I had the 05B version and swapped it for the 04K version. Should have kept my newer firmware because it felt quite a bit faster and booted up under 50 secs. It also fixed that landscape problem where text would get stuck on portrait.Any ideas? :-(

Doh.....can we put a sticky up for people to check their version before flashing? It sounds a lot better and we could probably do a dump, even if we don't get it from PanDigital.

so what I've find out is the Novel is running 2.1, is that correct? with it's own Pandigital homepage as opposed to say Launcher Pro, ADW etc...but what is the correct CPU speed? I have seen anywhere from 600 to 800mhz....and it is running the ARM11?
