All units currently being shipped by all authorized resellers have the new firmware pre-installed, which has no Market issues. Just a small quantity of the first initial batch where operating the older firmware version.
Sorry you see it that way Rob. Things are out of my hands regarding this. I can only post what I have when I am given it.
However, I have created an internal memory card image from a tablet that is operating the new firmware. This will be posted before the weekend along with full instructions for any users wishing to attempt removal and writing and replacing the Internal memory card. Video and step-by-step picture backed instructions have been created.
I understand the few users who have received units running the older firmware have pressure wanting to prepare their tablets for the Christmas day gift opening and I want to assure those users this is not being ignored.
