Hello, and thanks for reading, I was wondering if it is possible to get android 4.4 Kitkat on my Pioneer R1 tablet, its correctly running 4.2, it works but I'd really like to get 4.4/4.4.2 or at the very least 4.3 cause I have that on my galaxy S3 and I'm use to it.

This is my first tablet so I don't know a whole lot about rooting and such so I don't even know where to look.

Any help would be nice and again, thanks.

ASRock 990FX Extreme3 CPU: Phenom II X4 945e 3.0 Ram:(2 x 4GB DDR3 ) GPU : GTX 760 PSU: Corsair 750w

I'd suggest you take this to XDA Developers. I don't see a KitKat build for your hardware, but you can find a lot of info on their forums on building a custom ROM, or where to download and how to install if one has already been built.

Pioneer has not released an official KitKat build, and I can't find any info suggesting they intend to release one.

Those instructions let you get to ROOT console control, lets you get into otherwise unauthorized software, but still won't give you an OS update.
