The updated firmware has completely bricked it.  I appear to be stuffed; immediately upon reboot after flashing it goes only to the black screen with a band of broken white lines across it, and having followed the rockchip flasher to the letter, nothing; it doesn't recognise or won't connect to the tablet.  Period.  No way, no how.

 

Anybody know any other ways to get another firmware image onto the tablet?  The OS can't see it as mounted either, doesn't show up.

 

I've had this thing for a grand total of 4 hours. I really couldn't stand it if it's beyond recovery.  But I am already desperately sorry I ever tried this disaster of a firmware.

It appears you are flashing with the FIRST rooted ROM (not by me).  This had the bands of lines on it.

Go to http://www.arnovatech.com and download the manufacturers ROM.  Then follow the instructions here in the blogs on how to use the Rockchip flash tool (RKBatch tool) as this is the only way to reflash now that you are bricked.

As it happens, I fixed it.  But the key was something I just stumbled across.

The problem, you see, was that I couldn't connect it to the Rockchip, so I couldn't get the manufacturer's firmware back on.  It just wasn't showing up as a drive, it kept going back into a reboot loop, and all the while not being recognised.

 

The trick was, first, that I was holding the reset pin in for the whole 15 seconds that I had the volume + button pushed down.  THAT DOESN'T WORK, does it!  Reset pin in for only a few seconds, then continue with the volume + button for the full 15 seconds by itself, now THAT works a lot better.

Then I had to uninstall the device entirely from my laptop.  I'd installed the RK29 device back at the beginning, but it still wasn't recognising the drive.  However, when I uninstalled it entirely from Device Manager and then let it detect the drive new and reinstalled the RK29 Device driver, this time, at last, it worked  -- and it was detected and I put the firmware back to the manufacturer's.  And it LIVES.

 

This was from a WinXP 32bit laptop, by the way.  It was just a bit tetchier about it than expected.

 

Incidentally, are there any plans in the works to do a Rockchip tool that works on Macs, do you know?
