    debloating this tablet really helped a lot. that location hack helped with apps like weather apps. But it still isn't able to help with youtube.tv.

    Oh, cool, let me know how far works out. I got the widget hack working, I'll try the debloat. But the 10" and it's a lot snappier, but kinda big and heavy for the lap. But it's awesome for letting visitors use and my granddaughter loves it for movies. Probably streamed more free Amazon content in the last 2 days,than i have in the last 2 years...

    Thinking about doing a step by step video tutorial but I think I would have to start with how to set up ADB and use it.

    Dawg, that's excellent . You should do like a 3 part series or something.
    Intro, about the tools like ADB, then the play store install, the Launcher hack and debloat!

    I need to debloat the 8, it's pretty laggy compared to the 10.

    Something to do after work this week.

    Watched the entire infinity war movie while on the treadmill. A total of 135 minutes and 1050 calories burned.

    But that Amazon tablet performed quite nicely and still had about 70% battery life left despite it being at full brightness.

    This is what i wanted out of a tablet.[​IMG]

    ^this is the intro. Should I go deeper into adb or is that enough of an intro to move on?

    Grab my bag with the camera equipment only to realize I forgot my camera stand.

    Ran into a snag with this crack. But I'm filming it all so that when I figure out my way through it I'll have it for the masses.
