I also got this new version, mine is the dvd-less 7" model with 6 buttons at the bottom. One other difference that wasn't mentioned: usb keyboard and mouse are not working. Still experimenting with it.

I installed it and have been on the road, haven't had time to really do much other than install some apps,

I got update files from my seller but didn't test them yet... The file naming suggests they are encrypted like the. An-21u's if I remember right the encryption got figured out at some point, I'll have to research it when I get some time

Other things I found out so far:
- USB keyboard/mousd doesn't seem to work
- sub out only works with radio, nor poweramp Pandora Bluetooth or even built in music app. I ended up connecting my subwoofer amp to the rear channel
- hard drive works, I use a 128gb solid state hd.

Some apps are not compatible according to play store but can be side loaded (eg. Tablet talk and if I remember right poweramp), some are compatible according to play store but force close (eg gmail and weatherbug)

that's all I got so far, I thought I was buying another an-21 identical to the one I already have because I knew what to do and don't have too much time lately and here I am with the latest...

I also got this unit but my seller was not able to share the update files with me. Would it be possible to get them from you? I would like to investigate the differences to the dual core firmware version. Many thanks in advance.

Somebody (you?) posted the same file "4.4syestem.zip" in the AN-21U dual core thread a couple of days ago, and I got it already investigated by a real expert for this. It turned out (in the emulator) that it's the dual core firmware. You could double check - maybe something went wrong.
