@KevinJames, thanks for the great ideas. I just worry about giving someone a device that doesn't work properly. Imagine a young child about to conquer the world electronically when the devices freeze and/or crashes and looses all their scores. The trade-in price at Best Buy is $3.0, which tells you something. @palandri, thanks. Three years back that's exactly what I would have done but since then migrating to Windows and Apple I have become used to the stability of the systems and not too keen on messing with custom ROMs.
