A big "Thank you" for the root instructions - worked fine from W7x64 Pro.

I deleted a couple of apps but can't shift Wild Tangent or Vortex Player

It's so beautiful and value for money!
Others had given up too early. What a pity!

Could you give instructions on how to mod the Build.prop, or package as an .apk, if that's possible, please?

I agree with you, too many people giving up to soon on this. The first one I bought I had to take back due the screen popping up, got it replaced, tbh, it is the best £200 I've spent. It is well worth the money and well worth the time for a custom rom to be built, either that or wait (forever) for viewsonic to release ICS.

How bad was the screen? Mine's raised a little top and bottom and can see LEDs shine through small gap and wondering whether I should return to Maplin for a swap, but I wasn't expecting top notch build quality for the what I paid (got it at the £99.99 glitch)!

Build.prop tweaks
1. install & run Root Explorer
2. go to /system
3. mount r/w
4. open build.prop in text editor
5. add tweaks as text
6. save & exit, will backup automatically
7. reboot

There're lots of build.prop tweaks on the net, but not all work for every device:
http://techwithric.com/speed-up-your-android-part-1
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1227269

I didn't try them all, just added the followings which I feel good and safe:

debug.sf.nobootanimation=1
wifi.supplicant_scan_interval=180
pm.sleep_mode=1
ro.ril.disable.power.collapse=0
debug.performance.tuning=1
video.accelerate.hw=1
dalvik.vm.heapsize=48m
windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=150

You may play around and share with us the result

Excellent recommendation, it got rid of the last bits of bloatware that System Tuner failed to uninstall

Hi will,

Go on root explorer, then /system/media.

The bootanimation.zip is there. So is the boot.mp3 and shutdown.mp3.

Just a question though, I have loads of bootanimations saved as zips on my xperia x10i, would I be able to use them on this pad?

Tell you what, will try them after I've had me Takeaway and let yous know if they do work. If they do, I will try and find the thread they were posted or I can upload them to my rapidshare and post link.

EDIT: Ignore what I have said, was getting mixed up between the bootanimation and the initial logo when first switched on. I'm guessing the logo is built into the rom and not the actual android system itself.

As you can tell, I'm a newbie and don't know much, think I will shut up and leave it to the experts
