Took about an hour to get all of the pieces together and working. I had to use a Linux virtual machine to work on the filesystem on the gTablet.
Now, my gTablet is running VEGAn 5.1.1 and it is very snappy. I have full market, launcherpro, GApps, etc.
The device is quite heavy, and does indeed had some terrible viewing angles. I read for a couple of hours with it last night, and played som YouTube videos on it, and it is very fast compared to my Archos 70. The Archos is less than half the weight, however.
i'll be interested to see if other Woot purchasers had the same login personalization issue that i did.
Yeah, the stock OS gets corrupted easily. People have said that its an issue in regards to how TnT partitioned the memory. Repatitioning the sd card to the correct parameters could possibly prevent future outbreaks of force closing apps. I've done it and I've haven't had any issues with force closing errors. It does erase the data in the internal memory but it shouldn't be an issue if you back up your files on a pc or if you just got your gtab.
