Elvish is a piece of software that makes the link between an allwiner tablet and computer, and it helps flashing/recovering a tablet.
Hyunday A7 is an identical tablet with the 7G3

For future viewers who need the whole process in laymens terms(my apologies if this seems redundant)

1. Download Livesync v1.07 and Elvish 0.3 image

2. Download SDK tools and google how to set up ADB – this is as simple as installing and letting SDK manager install adb platform.

3. Download the firmware dump provided in this thread. You will only need nanda.img, nandb.img, nandc.img and nandd.img

4. Install Livesync and SDK tools and set up ADB.

5. FORMAT a MicroSD Card just to be safe. Make sure it has more than 8Gb

6. Run Livesync, Connect your device and put your device in Restore mode.

- For those who don't know how to do this, Press and Hold reset button (found inside the Mic opening) and Press and Hold Power Button

7. Your Windows System will search for the drivers. Manually search for them in your Livesync Folder under USBDrivers.

8. Select NO on livesync prompt and exit.  Switch off your device completely after drivers have installed. It could be a good idea to reboot your pc too just to be on the safe side.

9. Run Livesync again and open Elvish 0.3 image by selecting the Box icon on the upper left and browsing to the saved dir.

10. Connect your device again and Put in Restore mode again.

11. The image should now start the flashing process. Just select yes on all Livesyncs prompts. Once finished an exclamation prompt will pop up. select ok and disconnect your device.

You now have a working device with Elvish!!!

       …but who wants that right?

12. Start up everything on your device. Ignore all the settings for now.

13. Use your filemanager to double check directories for mounting

14. Copy the nan files to your MicroSD card and put it into your device.

15. open command prompt in windows.

16. Connect your device to your pc and set dubugging on in Developer Settings on your device.

17. In command prompt go to your adb directory and type this:

    – adb device

this should show if your device is visible

then type:

adb remount

adb shell

You now have your devices terminal open in prompt

Now starts the fun part.

18. type:

cat /mnt/extsd/nanda.img > /dev/block/nanda

cat /mnt/extsd/nandb.img > /dev/block/nandb

cat /mnt/extsd/nandc.img  > /dev/block/nandc

cat /mnt/extsd/nandd.img  > /dev/block/nandd

(sometimes this takes a while for the prompt to register but wait until your # shows up before entering each command)

19. type:

sync

20. hold:

CTRL+C

21. type:

adb reboot

 

Your device should reboot and you should see your ARNOVA logo show up.

this should be enough but as a general rule of thumb, If you see any aps that you recognise from Elvish, go to Settings and do a Factory Restore.
