I tried installling it from the android market and it just fails. I even paid for it from the amazon market, and it fails to install. We, the Hitchhikers....
No big deal, I got the free version of Rio and Seasons, but it just annoys me that it won't install, even when I bought a new copy from amazon.
AB (original) wants to install to the SD Card, try this:
- Mount the device to your PC
- Re-try the install
This might force it to /data. This was an old issue as well - a newer build might fix it, if memory serves.

Update the stock to 3588, if you haven't already done so. Also, it could be your router, try no authentication (as a test) or a different channel. also, a modded ROM with a custom kernel will use a different Wifi driver, which may help.

Also, This may help people determine if theirs is new; The charger cord was tucked in one compartment of the box, while the wall wart was in the other compartment. It didn't have an elastic band around it.
Turned it on, connected to wifi, downloaded the OTA update. Then Tried CM7B1 with Gapps. I couldn't get the Gapps to work at all.
I ended up flashing CM6.1B4 with Gapps. Seems to be working fine for the most part. I do have some issues though;
-I can't get the sound to work without plugging in headphones then removing them. I tried installing some sort of patch, it was an .apk. That did not work.
-Youtube in HD doesn't run very smoothly.
-Sometimes the home button isn't responsive. This is only true while in the OS. When I am in clockwork it works perfectly.
-The camera image is sideways when I open the camera app
-The battery indicator seems to be stuck at 100%. I doubt after 3 hours of use yesterday It really is still 100%. I am on my first charge, maybe that has something to do with it...
-Wallpapers don't look good at all. When selecting a wallpaper (from gallery) and cropping, the cropping window is square. I assume that its cutting it at the wrong aspect ratio then stretching it.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix to these issues? Thank you!
Here are some notes about the hardware:
-The screen viewing angles suck, no doubt about it. This has been discussed to death though.
-Also mentioned before, the soft buttons are impossible to see at night. This kind of stinks because I use them often in android, Everyone probably does. I'm tempted to take a permanent marker and make ever so small tic marks on the screen so I can line up my finger in the dark.
-The battery indicator is stuck at 100%. I mentioned this in the software notes, but I figured I would mention it here too. I didn't see it drop below 100% when I had TnT installed either. This may be because I am on the first charge, idk.
Thanks for reading, let me know if you have any ideas
Some of these issue (like the Camera) might be specific to the mod, so keep that in mind. CM6.1B4 is a few months old, if memory serves.
The battery issue is a known issue - I have the same problem. It's actually not stuck - what's happing is that the battery stats are broken. Some devices might go up to 95% and stop, others go to 110% (which you can't see) and stop. I'm in the latter category.
Read up on XDA but a suggested course of action is to install cwm, let the battery drain completely and then run cwm and reset the battery stats. This has worked for some people.

This tablet is awesome. Big thanks to the devs over at xda, and to sean for his step by step guide. One issue I do have. I partitioned the internal space for 2gb as instructed. On the settings screen the other 12-13 gb shows up as if it was an sd card. Now when I put my own sd card in, it doesn't show up. I do get an error that states that my card may be bad (i know it isn't) and a popup that asks me to format, but that doesn't do anything. Any suggestions?
Edit: Ok so I formatted my sd card using my droid x, and now when I put the sd card in the tablet there are no errors. But when I go to settings and sd card, it only shows internal and internal sd. I did find my card by using a file explorer app. It lists it as sd card2. I guess I will just have to get used to it not showing under the normal settings?
Yes, unfortunately. "The microSD not being seen by apps" issue is well known, and not just on the GTAB. The problem is mainly that a lot of apps are written for phones, where /sdcard is the microSD. As more apps are re-written, this should be less of a problem.
