    Howdy all!
    I just picked up a pandigital novel tablet, and of course, the first thing I did was install the Android open platform kit. Of course, that wiped all of the proprietary B&N software, but I could care less. I am new to androids, but I know my way around Linux systems. So, I am slowly but surely figuring out this device, it's filesystem, capabilities, etc. Is there a good guide for android newbies out there? I've found the ES File explorer, and while it seems to do the job, to tell you the truth, I'm more used to a simple Bourne shell. I found /system/bin/sh , but for some reason, it refuses to load. Also, after 'upgrading' to the open platform kit, I am no longer able to connect to my Mac via USB (which I was able to do with the B&N software). I've got a couple dozen more questions, but these will do for now.

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    I'm not specific aware of a decent Android for Newbies though I'm sure someone has created that. Probably the best place to post your question will be in the Tablets & Mids forum.
