    Hi I hope this helps some of you decide what this changes on your device.

    Here is my About page...

    I updated my VTab to the OTA 1.5 update this morning..

    However the version still reads 1.4 even after some cold reboots, here are the details listed after the update:

    Android version: 2.3.2 GRH78C
    Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7+
    Hardware Version: Hardware ID:5(PVT1)
    Software Version: V.I.A Plus 1.4
    Uboot Version: 1.1.18
    Build Number: 1.9.57

    I hope this helps some of you to see what changes, but I am still unsure as to why Vizio promote this OTA update as 1.5 when the details in the About Device still clearly indicate 1.4? I guess this is just a ruse to make you think you are getting the next level of features but in reality it is just to stop people rooting their devices.

    Yep, it stops rooting, which means that it doesn't see ad-hoc networks either.

    Any guesses on how long before someone figures out a new rooting technique?
