Default New G Tablet

I just purchased a G Tablet and keep reading about changing its ROM. Which one do you recommend and where can I find detailed instructions to do so?

i recommend Flashback 8.1 its a great honeycomb rom. you will have to use nvflash though.

use option 3 to have most stable install.

find it here

well if you want everything to work perfectly i would stick with one of the froyo roms. all thee roms should have a market any rom you choose will give you more access to your tablet. the best part of installing a rom is because it gets rid of the horrible tnt program from viewsonic. i go with flashback because its a honeycomb rom which is made for tablets so it doesnt feel like you are on a giant phone. if you want it to work perfectly though i would go with a froyo rom for a few weeks and then they will have everything fixed. also its not long till we have a honeycomb 3.2 rom
