    I'm wondering whats the story with updating the Android OS?

    If I buy a Tablet with Android 2.1, do I have to wait to see if the manufacturer decides to create an update for the device?

    I don't like this idea if it is the way things work.

    So, if this the issue, I would like to develop my own update, so can someone tell me the steps in laymans terms?

    I have programming experience and am eager to learn to work on the OS, not the applications.

    The source has to be adapted to each specific device.

    If you want to start up with Android development then try reading up in development forums and using development resources (find the Android SDK and so on).
