Is Visual Land going to update the Connect and Prestige 7 to have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?
if not can we flash it on instead, like we can with ics?
At this time, we don't have any current plans for 4.1. We do have a 4.0.4 update which fixes the Netflix and Skype issues as well as adds a custom launcher and some "bloatware". Apologies to those that hate bloatware (like myself), but it's something our retailers believe the general customer population want/need. The good news is I spent a good chunk of time making sure that you could uninstall all of them if you wish.
Thanks for the uninstall option Joe. I guess some of us modders will get the ball rolling on 4.1.
I do want to say that here at Tabletroms, we really appreciate your involvement. also, even if its bad news, just having news makes us all happier with our tablets.
When can we expect the "official" 4.0.4 update for the Prestige?
Nowish, and it is hosted here. however I don't know if an 'Over The Air' option is in the works, or what.
Cool. I saw it in the firmware thread, but I wasn't sure if there was one coming.
Could you explain the benefit of 4.0.4 over 4.0.3?
Sure. Its a bit faster, a bit smoother, and it fixes the issues with Skype and netflix. the rest of the changes are minor/ cosmetic.
