    I was playing around with this as the seller said he would send me Win10 on a USB. I wanted to make sure I could boot from the USB. It would appear the holding the up-volume and power button briefly puts one into the BIOS... Which looks very similar to other Phoenix BIOS'... Well... Limited... But it does give you boot options!

    I've read this thread over many weeks and can't remember if that info was given.

    yeah ... plenty of hits ... 5.7K so far .
    i want to see if i can get android to run reliably on it .
    the latest version is 7.xx ...
    but from what i understand , it is the release candidate flavor .

    with some of the older bios menus , there was a "joe consumer" access and also a higher level/tech access .

    Larry,
    message Jeff. He got one to boot a live Linux usb. No idea how he managed to do it.

    By Android I am assuming you mean an Android distro of Linux?

    i am thinking along these lines :
    http://www.jide.com/remixos

    i found this article while looking fo some information :
    https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/10/building-android-a-40000-word-history-of-googles-mobile-os/
    looks like i'm going to settle in with a large glass of milk and a stack of chocolate chip cookies .

    there are a butt-load (a real measurement of rocket fuel) of programs written and i can see where there is much more offered in a couple of places rather than scouring the web for programs .
    my main concern is gps navigation ... of the type that enables me to have flexibility of map types and real-time data gathering .
    if the pad is put on a carrier (say , verizon) , i can download pertinent air navigation data .

    I tried Remix but I didn't like it, cloudready might work also. I am working on grabbing a couple of the 3E's I listed. I got a really good Win 10 install minus all the garbage today. Put it on a T410 and it's working fine.

    i tried remix a year or so ago ... i was not really impressed with it .
    hopefully they have modded the gui to be more like a couple of the popular (as in "it sells") ones out there .
    the gui on my s5 is quite workable , save for want of a couple of things and the ability to easily get rid of that embedded *&(&^&#$@#$&^@!()*%$ " *peel remote* .
    i will never buy another phone that has "peel remote" installed .
    even the gui on the F1-Z1 is pretty darn good ... too bad the display cannot be upgraded and run a higher version of android .

    there are 9 units left ... i am the only purchaser so far .
