TNT Lite is "mostly stock" - so, if you are using the stock ROM in "classic mode", it's very similar. I do replace some of the Viewsonic apps, but overall it should be an easy transition.

Some of the other ROMs are more AOSP-based, like the Gingerbread ones. VEGAn ROM ports the Advent VEGA UI to the GTAB and is pretty popular, and gADAM ports the Notion Ink Adam UI. So you have a lot of options.



You rock with all this support! Viewsonic should pay you! I don't happen to see a donate button btw on your xda post?

I am surprised to see no one building a dual boot on this given that Nook Color got this long back. This is more powerful and actually makes more sense to dual boot - one with stock and the other with a heavily modded version. Thoughts? I don't know a lot of Java but I love Python. Let me know if I can be of some help trying to write a dual booter!!

Thanks. Hopefully, it'll ship today. I know the staff said they'll all go out, but I'm sure they've got their work cut out for them trying to get another 6K out the door.

BTW - I ordered 6:30pm PST.

To answer your question it is FedEx ground, it's on the Blog page and was on the Woot.com main site when you bought the tablet.



I skimmed the thread, read the blog, and looked everywhere on FedEx's site and I still don't see where it's confirmed to be shipping Ground. Maybe you can clarify for me?

Has anyone tried pulling the LED lead to disable that, or is there an option in the O/S to do so.



That's the battery charging indicator.

XDA wants dev/modders to use the donate functionality builtin, so it shows up under the username. Go figure.

You can "almost" dual boot with clockworkmod. Backup stock with it, then build out a modded version and do the same. That way, you can go back and forth with clockworkmod. Problem is backing up all the time to keep the updates.

Ordered at 4:30pm Eastern ... saw tracking # when I pulled up the order on woot.com.

I have tons of things to catch up on so I can feel like I deserve this thing. So no hurry.

Go to the first page of comments. Look at the very first post. The item name at the top of the post is a link. This link takes you to the blog post for the item. Click it. Scroll down, down, down. Scroll until you get to the SquareTrade warranty box. To the right of it, a little below it, is another box. Within the box is a snail. The snail has wheels. The snail is carrying a box on its back. The snail is captioned with "Ground." The snail is a visual metaphor! It indicates the shipment method: Ground.

My tracking number just arrived in e-mail about 5 minutes ago. Shortly after the order page updated with the same. No love on the number on FedEx site yet, so waiting for it to get into the warehouse and be scanned at once...

One more step closer still!

FYI: My order was placed around 9:40pm Woot Time. So looks like they are digging close to the bottom of the pile now!

I don't know how I could've missed that.


Seriously, thanks it's my first wootoff and I was concerned for future reference. If it is ground I'm in the next day shipping zone for FedEx Ground. I assume it will be here tomorrow.

Is the G-Tab used primarily in landscape mode? It seems to me when ever I see an i-Pad it is shown in portrait mode and when I see the G-tab, it is shown in landscape.....Or is it just me?

Don't have one yet, but I do believe you are correct in your assumption. I think it is designed for landscape use.

But that may be because I have an ipad now, and the gtab looks elongated to me in portrait, at least in pictures.

The forum post magic genie worked! I posted, went off to start some laundry, and bing! (or, google!) I get my shipping notice.

Thanks to the above post, I know to expect my gTab Wed or Thursday, and Thurs is my day off!

I literally bought mine with seconds left on the clock (11:59:07 I think) and I just got my status set to shipped, if that's the case then I get mine tomorrow because I live in Fort Worth. Those of you who still haven't gotten your shipment notifications keep the faith, it will be there soon...

Got my woot tracking bot email! So excited!

Just a quick tip for people looking into getting a cheap neoprene sleeve for your tablet. I paid 3 dollars, shipped, for my macbook air sleeve from one of those straight from the factory in asia online stores. So keep an eye on dealnews, etc. for something similar.


This was about 4 months ago and it's holding up amazing. Great quality. Slow shipping though.

I have a question, specifically with the tnt lite ROM. I am reading the instructions and following them to prepare myself when my gtab comes.

I am stuck at this step:

Extract the RAR to the root of your internal memory. So, for example, if your device is mounted on your Windows F drive, you need to extract the RAR so that you have an F:\update.zip file and an F:\recovery folder.

I extracted the RAR in a regular folder to see how it would extract and could not find a update.zip file. I came to the conclusion that the zipped update folder is the file that I am looking for. Can someone confirm that or help me find it?
