Well, I did it! I got the VEGAn-TAB ROM installed on my Viewsonic gTablet! It works great! And, I have the full Android Market available. I also install VMware View and the Citrix Receiver on the tablet after the ROM update and they work great! This is very cool stuff! I should be able to get the video soon and have it as a netcast. Stay tuned!
Well, as some of you may know that watch the Dr. Bill.TV show, my gTablet came in... I am now waiting for my 16 gig memory card to come in before I attempt my hack to change out the ROM. I think I will be going with the VEGAnTab ROM. Hopefully, I will have a report and netcast soon!
Pundits claim it is the Viewsonic gTablet. Not coincidentally, that is the tablet I have on order, and am waiting with baited breath to receive!
