and tried applying then via update from SDcard. No joy, installation aborted. I wonder if it is because the current image is a bit different:
what happens if i try to search for it? hmm, couldn't find anything.
2016-11-07: apps - new Aldiko Book Reader now show ads every time you start it. TVHClient stops every time I start it, after clearing app data and configuring up a connection to my tvh server again it works. Some channels works better than others.

2014-12-16: system update. Another system update (113 MB) available. I download and install it. After the install (it took a while), reboot, app optimizing (135 apps, took a while) and "Update successful" message I checked About tablet - still Android 4.4.2, kernel 3.4.67. Image version Acer_AV0K0_A1-810_RV0HRC03_WW_GEN1, Build number Acer_AV0K0_A1-810_1.055.00_WW_GEN1, Image P/N FM.NLXA0.06K.
2014-11-22: app - I tested TVHClient after reinstalling it. It works on channels i have access to, at least the "SD" ones. For some reason, there isn't program guide data for the HD channels - no program guide data, not possible to view the channel.
2014-11-22: apps - auto-updated: Google Play Music 5.7.1781Q.1595424, MX Player 1.7.32, YouTube 5.17.6, manual update: TVHClient 1.6.1 - I had to uninstall and reinstall it to get it working.
2014-07-22: system update. Right after installing, a new system update is available: "A new system update is available (258MB)." and "This software update includes the following major changes:
1. Android 4.4.2 KitKat update 2. Security enhancements 3. Updated Camera app"
"Cautions: 1. Google has changed the external storage policy for android 4.4.x KitKat. Now only the pre-loaded system applications have permission to write to external storage (microSD card). Third-party applications you may have installed will lose write access to the microSD card. If you would like to retain microSD card write permissions for third-party applications as found in Android 4.2.x Jelly Bean, just skip this update notification and NEVER execute "Download Now" to update to Android 4.4.x. 2. After updating the software you will not be able to downgrade to older software versions because of updates to the security policy."
Oh well, I'll upgrade anyway. "Download now", followed by "Restart & install". Next is the Android "Installing system update..." animation with a progress bar, and (after quite a while) another reboot, followed by "Android is upgrading" - 136 applications to optimize, then finished. When unlocked, the tablet informed me that "The update was sucessful." About tablet - Android version 4.4.2, kernel version 3.4.67.

I also had to set (confirm) the backup account (Gmail) not sure what it is used for.
2014-07-22: I found out (a few days ago) that a new system update is available. The text says: "A new system update is available (132MB).". and
"After installing this update, the operating system will remain at version 4.2.2. Please be aware that this update is necessary to update to
Android 4.4 (KitKat) in the future". Oh well, start downloading. After download, do "Restart & install". Next is the Android "Installing system update..."
animation with a progress bar, and (after quite a while) another reboot, followed by "Android is upgrading" - 71 applications to optimize, then finished.
When unlocked, the tablet informed me that "The update was sucessful.". About tablet - Android version 4.2.2, kernel version 3.4.5, changes:

2014-06-21: no system update, the tablet still runs Android 4.2.2.
2014-04-06: ssh access using VX ConnectBot (homepage) with Hacker's Keyboard (homepage) is a workable solution. The standard Google keyboard doesn't have arrow keys.
