    Cool Netgear (OEM iControl) HSS101

    So I got my hands on a rare item.
    The Netgear (kind of) branded (it's just a rubber bumper), iControl HSS101.
    I'll post pictures soon. But I know this is such a rare item that I'm going to be modding it for myself.

    First impressions:
    nice hardware, feels really solid.
    Screen is bright and smooth.
    It's a tegra (2?) device.
    -No multitouch (thats ok for me)
    -No GPS (hmm, ok..)
    -No Bluetooth.. (oh well I got this for free.)
    USB mini Port is a Host port? (It's actually a 10 pin connector, with 2 USB (4 pin) lines (6 pins(2 power pins are shared)), a serial port (2 pins), and a recovery "selector" pin, and ground.)
    One hardware button, 1 tap for back, 2 taps for home, hold for menu, extra long hold for power.
    No power button turns on when power is plugged in.
    Has wifi, and an SD card.

    Browser reboots the device when attempting to run I guess java script? Some sites no problem, google.com *bam* reboots.

    It's got Android 2.3 (or 2.1)...
    Edit: It's 2.2 as you can see in the pictures in my next post.

    It's design was for a simple display unit that controlled multiple functions around the house, from a flash application. Control thermostat, review IP Cameras, control alarm system, picture frame, simple internet apps like weather and news.
    I think it's much more than was needed for it's intended use.

    I've contacted the OEM for source, doubt I'll see anything.
    I'd love to hear that someone else has one. It's a rare item, and mostly useless, but some apps may be nice.
    I'll post more in near future.

    Hacked with keyboard, interesting USB port is in Host Mode.
    insides of device. nothing to make me too happy about... not terribly difficult to open.

    I have an HSS101 that is using software application from ADT Pulse. I want to use the device to control other devices (Z-Wave) but I am not an ADT customer. Is there any way to "hack" this unit to disable or bypass the ADT Pulse software to be able to get to the OS and install my own Android apps? Thanks in advance.

    How did you add the keyboard?

    How did you hook up the keyboard? Is it plugged in to the micro-USB slot? Did you have to do anything to get to the command prompt?

    According to Netgear's website (HSS101 | Touch Panels | Home Monitoring & Automation | Service Providers | NETGEAR) they say that it has a thermostat module and zigbee RF modules. Have you played with any of those yet? I'd be interested to know if you can mount the tablet on the wall to replace your HVAC thermostat

    Hi
    I happen to own one of the Netgear HSS101 tablets, however when I power it up it shows the ADT pulse UI. How did you make it boot into android?
