    manual android update
    I received a netbook for christmas that is running version 1.9, and I don't know how to update it. I cannot find a brand name anywhere on it and there does not appear to be any sort of built in updater, so I assume I need to 'root it,' so any advise would really be appreciated. Sidenote: has anyone else had a problem with the wifi systems settings menu and/or the youtube app repeatedly crashing?
