    Hello all,

    New guy just got my gtablet this week and thinking of flashing it... I have read some of the post but just getting started...

    I can see the oem OS is slow and limited as far as what apps will work... I was able to get some of the flash to work and my yahoo email is not working.... but also notice that after some use the thing starts to really lag... After a power cycle all is fine... not sure if that is normal for the oem flash...

    I would like to have adobe reader and some movie player that has looping.

    Any help or info would be great... looking to flash as soon as I can figure out all the stuff I will need and if I can re flash back to OEM if needed...

    Thanks....

    Hey moreboost...you don't need z4root. The thread I pointed you to, start with step 5. If you're looking to flash a custom rom, then you can go straight to step 5.

    Sorry now I have to ask, what's the point of z4root at all? Am I missing something?

    z4root would be used if you wanted to root your device to install apps on the stock TnT interface but NOT flash a new ROM. however, not many people seem to be going that route as the custom ROMs are much better. i am going to edit the crap out of my original "how to" thread sometime today, it's starting to get confusing with all the optional steps.

    Ok

    Trying to flash the new ROM. I tried to follow your instructions from #5 but its refering to use Clockworks. So I downloaded the files and unzipped. installed the files to the root dir. I also downloaded the flash for the ROM and unzipped that into the Android folder...

    When I go to reboot the tablet after powering down... I get some msg saying something like update button pressed over the viewsonic screen with the birds... I hold the buttons until it goes to a black screen with a box and green download arrow... after that the system reboots and I'm back to were I started :(
