First thing, don't panic.

Provided there is no hardware fault on the tablet or the NAND flash memory, Rockchip based tablets are very hard to brick.

The error may come from the USB cable, try a different cable you are sure is good quality.

Put again your tablet in Flash mode and try again to flash the stock firmware, make sure you are using Restore button in Rockchip Batch tool to flash the firmware.

It's worth trying again after the tablet is charged.

If the tablet doesn't start properly, the timing with the hardware keys (Vol and Power) to put the tablet into flash mode may not be easy to get but it should work in the end.

I just tried again this morning after all night charging. And nothing.

 

The timing is the same like the other time, when it works but dont work. The PC dont reaction at all. I tried pressing Volume button & Power and then connect to the PC and do the same while its connected without any change.  It's like connecting a potato to a computer...

 

I have some experience on android devices and I think it's completely brick. Dont know why but it is :(

 

Anyway thanks a lot for your help

cant this device be flashed as stated on the archos website ?

do you have to use the tool ? im wanting to root mine, like my galaxy s3

but having second thoughts now :S 

GAMEPAD

1. Download the update file « update.img » to your PC. 

2. Connect the USB cable to your Archos and your computer. 

3. Copy the « update.img » to the root of the Internal Storage. Do not place it into any folder of the Archos, just to the root level of the device. 

4. Unplug your device of the PC. 

5. The Archos will find the update automatically and display a message box offering to install this new firmware. Before tapping on "Install", you need to connect the charger/adapter DC-IN to your device.

i noticed you clicked the "upgrade" button ??    not "restore"  the instructions that admin gave said Flash only with Rockchip Flasher tool, use Restore button don't know if will make a difference ??

Hope it could be fix.

Maybe this could help you:

After successfully flashing one Gamepad, I tried it on another one, but failed to enter recover mode on it several times in a row. I was successful though with the following trick:

Switch off the tablet. Connect it to USB. Start the RKBatchTool.exe.

Look at the "Connected Devices [1]". It is gray.

Enter recovery mode of the tablet by pressing vol+,vol-,poweron and keep them pressed..

Within 4 seconds the [1] square should turn green. If it does, then let go of the buttons and proceed to flash the firmware again by selecting your desired firmware + click on the restore button.

The tablet's screen will remain black all the time and will appear to be not working at all - you can only verify that it's alive by waiting for the flash to be successful and then it will reboot automatically.

Hallo the_jako danke für den tipp,
ich habe mein Gamepad auch zerschossen und konnte es so wieder zum laufen bekommen.

Warning: No responsibility for hardware damage or lost of warranty

Als erstes muss das Gamepad vorsichtig  geöffnet werden.

 

02.jpgImage Enlarger

Erst wird die Kupferfolie hochgezogen und dann der der Metalldeckel hochgeklappt.

 

Das Gamepad wird nun mit dem USB-Kabel am PC verbunden.

Jetzt kann man mit einer Nadel über die Kontakte streichen.

Nach ein paar Sekunden wurde mein Gamepad im Gerätemanager als RK30 erkannt
und ich konnte es mit "Rockchip Batch Tool" wider Flashen.
