    Does anyone know how to update the OS on the Pioneer R1 tablet? It's currently running 4.2.

    I'd like to get it to 4.4 if possible.

    This is a rebranded Gigabyte tablet.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to Android Central! You have to install this app: Pioneer Tablet Firmware Update. There's no guarantee a 4.4 update is available, though.

    Thanks - I did see and tried that, but it tells me no update is available. Several of the apps I have been using are telling me I need to update the OS or I can't use them anymore. I guess I am just SOL here?

    Yeah, unfortunately you probably are. The other option would be to root the device and install a custom ROM of the higher Android version, but I couldn't find a successful root procedure on the web, and someone would still have to design a custom ROM for it.
