Hi,

im lost, and i not able find informations. if anyone can me help ;)

I updated 4.4 android in mini3. it is wokring fine, but I tablet is not anymore recognized in rkbatch tool 1.7 / drivers 3.7

so I made reset. hold buttons for little longer and I ended up with screen "type password to decrypt storage"

from that point I cant figure out how to flash it back to stock/custom whatever.

Even weird, tablet is recognized in device manager. just tools dont see it.

so my question is  what I f..d up ? and how to fix it ?

first of all how to get into flash/recovery mode ? its mini3 , it doesnot have buttons. what I found in chinese site its hard to understand via google translator.

or what I should do if anything ?

another mini3 is working just fine. so cable/drivers shiould be ok. maybe not working with 4.4 android??

 

thank you for help

This is due to the 2nd generation loader (v2.07) which controls now your tab.

Pls report this back to ifive as an major issue.

hello, im at lost.. i flashed the android kitkat 4.4 to my device then it is working fine till the RKBatch tool stopped detecting my device. what my problem now is that my device is stuck at the flash mode.. its vibrating constantly and i cannot open it nor the pc can detect it. Also, while it is vibrating in flash mode, the screen is turning on and off, it does not display something but i can see that the backlight of the device is turning on and off..

Sounds like a wrong kernel. What is your device? Which firmware did you flash?

maybe the problem lies with the (change kernel in folder rockdev/Image)

- i have changed the kernel in the folder rockdev/Image to the kernel that was in the link "RADXA ROCK"

 

You flashed a strange kernel into the tab. This is why the tab is not responding.

You need to bring the tab in Mask-Rom modus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=wMl6IbYBLtU

aww. but i just followed the steps that was on the site. i changed the kernel from the image folder to the one in the "RADXA ROCK" link.

anyway, thanks for this one.. i'll try it when i get back home. also, do you know how to open up the ifive mini 3 tablet? the youtube video that you have linked is very useful. thanks a lot, i appreciate it.

 

please help me sir, i will be monitoring your response frequently since i really want to fix my tablet. it's only 1 week old.. thanks for all the help.

 was able to find way to fix this issue

1. download driver 3.7

2. connect ifive mini 3 to pc.. 

3. turn off debugging mode from device.

4. open roochchip tool 1.7 and click switch.

( if tool cant detect device, swipe down on notification bar and choose camera(PTP) or mass storage  until you see the pink box on no. 1-8 

5. when you click on swith device will go to stage where it will just vibrate so make sure battery is full when you do this...

6. go to devuce manager and click action to scan for hardware changes.. youll get unknown device.

7. manualy uodate driver ang browse on the driver 3.7 folder.. 

it will install the driver and then youll get a green box now.

8. load firmware and press restore..

9. wait to finish and enjoy....
