Yes, you're absolutely right. Since january this year they turned off the infrastructure if i remember correctly. It didn't bother me, i had my 2 or 3 apps i needed and that was enough. I use my tablet strictly for recreational purposes like websurfing, listening to webradio, reading comics or using the audio player. Nothing more. For the serious things i use my laptop. I started thinking about installing android because the browser developed more and more problems displaying some major websites.
I just finished erasing the whole damn thing and android is running fine. Thanks very much for your explanation. I decided not to make the effort of analysing and trying again several times. Now i have a brand new toy that runs smoothly and i have to learn some android.
No, i don't own any kind of smartphone. Desktop PC for the big things you need power for, laptop for the everyday work and a small cell phone with buttons that lasts nearly 30 days with one charge. My "killer app" on the tablet was ComicShelf HD. Not expensive, very intuitive and reduced to the most important functions. You even had the opportunity of in-app emailing the current page that was on display with two finger tips. I'll have to look for a worthy successor now.
Once i have set up my current install to my satisfaction, i don't plan to change anything. I have to get used to this new stuff and learn how to handle it and that will be enough.
Thanks again for your support, much appreciated
