    Have you looked at the posts in Android Tablet Zone? In various forums that I've briefly looked at, most have links pointing to posts in that forum, including the one you linked. I haven't registered, so I can't browse through ATZ, But that appears to be the site w/ the most info.

    Ok, I've returned it to the individual. All she wants to use it for is facebook & email. Thanks for the help(y)

    Sorry, it didn't work out like you hoped.Well, I guess now you know what not to get if you decide to pick up a tablet.

    Well, I contacted them & got this reply;
    Dear Customer,



    Unfortunately we are unable to assist you with this inquiry.



    Please see the statement below.

    Pandigital, the company, produced digital photo frames (DPF’s), ereaders/tablets, as well as scanners.

    That company was dissolved last July and the assets (I.e., the Pandigital brand) were purchased by a company called Sunglow North America Technologies, Inc.

    Sunglow made the decision to exit the DPF and tablet/eReader businesses and concentrate on personal scanners, which they sell under the Pandigital brand and continue to support.



    Unfortunately, Sunglow is unable to support any other product categories



    Sorry we cannot assist you further in this matter.


    Regards
    Oh well. :)

    Never heard of them. Can't say I've seen scanners by Pandigital either, not that I've looked for them. Been a while since I read reviews for dedicated scanner.

    I only have two ROM Images for this tablet I created. Both are rooted.

    I have no idea what you are talking about.
    Before I can do anything with it, its my understanding I have to remember the password.
    Once I remember that, I'm going to hope I can remove the password so I can use it as is.
    Basically I just want it to access techspot & email. If ROM is Read Only Memory, I do know that but I have no idea what rooted is.

    It's like jail-breaking your device. Once rooted, you'll be able to install firewall app, uninstall stock app, install ad-blocker, etc. These can't be done out of the box.

    You would have to re-image the tablet to correct your issue with the password, if you can't remember it? If you have a locked password. Rooting the tablet means you can use rooted applications on it. Where you are not rooted you can't. Just can't unlock the tablet.

    Ok, even thou the Panimage company is no more, I think I'm just going to try to remember the password in hopes I can write it down once its known or delete it.
    If all else fails, I'm going to have the individual replace it with similiar device & NO password will be set.Thank you all for your input.(y)
