The Cube U30GT-MINI is a cheap and powerful 7 inches Android tablet based on the Rockchip RK3066 processor. After many weeks if wait, the manufacturer has finally released their 1.04 firmware update on November 10th, 2012, a plain Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean firmware that doesn't rely on their Win8 Metro like User Interface. We have added root support, extended space storage for applications and cleaned the unnecessary and Chinese apps in the stock 1.04 firmware.

Cube U30GT-MINI rooted firmware download
This firmware is specific to the Cube U30GT-MINI (aka U30GT-M) and should not be installed on other devices.
WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE.
THIS FIRMWARE UPDATE IS USED AT YOUR OWN…
The dead Android logo display just means you're not pushing the buttons right to enter in flash mode, it's not always easy to get the trick at first times.
Make sure your tablet is connected to power and USB cable to your computer. You'll need a proper reliable USB cable, the one that ships with most Cube tablets are reported to be low quality and caused many problems with firmware flashing.
Shutdown your tablet.
Press Vol+ button then power button, keep both buttons press and after a second or two, the Connected device square should turn green on Rockchip Batch tool on your computer.
i download the new img rooted
i put the tablet in flash mode
i flash with RK batch tool .
Somehow something goes wrong and the tablet goes into dead android screeen ( droit robbot with a red triangle)
I use the some cable the some PC used a couple of weeks ago when i flash the first immage.
Now i can't put into flash mode, but i can acces recovery v4 (3e) menu using pwron&vol+ pressed simultaneously.
Pc wont recognize the device, but installing adb drivers i can recognize them than a android phone with a adb interface.
Now it's a kind of adb flasher...how can i push the img into sd card of device to flash it...? or some other method to bring it back tolife?
Nothing to do. MY mini was not recognise from linux windows...
I can't put it onto the flash mode
Only ADB drivers i can install
the only immage do i hawe is am droid vith red triangle and "!"
Using the recovery 3e screeen nothing happens
I thinck the boot is stucked and i need to put it onto recovery moode "dark blue" for rk tools, but i opened the tablet...
I can't find a reset point or a loop for revovery boot.
After a great battle i revive my mini.
First i reflash an 1.30 immage using recovery(dark blue image) then...
I try to flash a moddified kasty rom v1.4 rooted who initialed brick my tablet.
Aftee i begun the flash goes wrong the tablet brick another one.
I try to reflash it using recovery...but....no flash no party.
So i come back to v1.3...
It's strange why i'm unable to flash v1.4 ...
To unbrick U30 mini shortcut 29-30 pin on nand flash chip (dont matter wich one works with booth)
connect the tablet at PC with USB cable and press PWR ON.
If all is ok a new driver need to be installed.
remove shortcut ( i made it with a screwdriver)
After installing driver open RK tools v1.5
A dark blue square apears. The tablet is on recovery mode.
Load rom then( i flash v1.3 orriginal) pres RECOVERY.
After the job done you have a working tablet.HERE the immages
At last, flased with 4.1 rooted.
For flashing 4.1 after i flashed first 1.30 oficial i made this:
Pwr off tablet
Go on recovery mode
open RKtools 1.5
putting tablet on flash mode
vol+ pwr on then release pwr on then vol+ after 4 seconds
a dark blue rectangle apears
load the rom 4.1
then flash using RECOVERY not UPDATE
After a couple of minutes the job is done.
