I made a post on this previously, if you have the drivers installed the open the flash tool and click switch, the button 1 should turn green. I had major issues installing the drivers as windows was not seeing my device..... Try this, turn on your tablet. Press your power button and hold it in... Don't let it go just yet... Plug in your USB cable to your computer. Install drivers (still holding the power button in). Once drivers are installed let the button go. Now open the flash tool and you should get a green button 1, if not press switch and it should go green.
you can get the drivers from here:
Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.7...
I downnloaded the file and extracted it as a folder.
I can't seem to get the computer to detect the tablet. I did as u said.
Ensured that the tablet was switched off and no cable connected to it.
Held down the power button, it turned on whilst I kept my finger on the power button.
Then connected the USB to the tablet & computer whilst my finger was still on the power button. And even then, the computer still didnt detect the tablet.
I had the same issue, took me ages to get this.. I noticed that in device manager my laptop would detect as Ifive 3... which i though was right...
But... out of frustration I pressed the power button, the tablet came up with power off message, i just kept the power button held in and then plugged in my cable. My computer detected the tablet as an unknown device and then (with the power button still held in) I installed the drivers... this is now i managed it..
try rebooting you pc.
turn on your tablet.
hold in your power button - let it start up..keep the power button held down...
check in device manager, what does it detect your device as?
u know what, u're a STAR!!
I spent the last 2 hours trying to sort this f*cking sh*t out, it's been frustratingly long, especially since not much information is available on this product.
The primary reason as to why I'm rooting this device is to alter the color saturation, as colors seem so washed out. Not to mention, try to increase the brightness.
Thanks for your answer, but rooting is not the problem since it's done by installing the new ROM and running SuperSU. Perhaps you are planning to install CWM or TWM but is it really necessary since you can install any ROM with the rockship tool.
If you have problem with the rockship tool try to desinstall and reinstall the good driver for your device.
You will find a tuto in this forum, take the time to search and find but my latest problem with this tools was the wrong driver for the device.
My expectation is to have no running problem with this ROM.
I have read the lastest posts and I'm not very convince to install it since the problem encounter with lost partition etc. affraid me.
Now if someone have a good experience with it I can give a try.
Me personally, no because it seems difficult to root, but then I'm a noob
The primary reason as to why I want to root it is because I want to install some root level apps which can be used to adjust colour saturation. The colours of the screen on this tablet is very washed out. It looks horrible, especially comparing to my phone. Otherwise it's a brilliant tablet for its price.
Hi, thank you very much for the ROM.
I found project picuntu: PicUntu 4.5 installer loads Ubuntu onto Rockchip RK3188 devices.
I had no experiences with flashing - so when I flash this distro, how can i go back to flash your ROM?
I want know how set ifive to flashing mode (it have no volume button an i afraid if it is possible do from ubuntu/picuntu by Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.7).
Can anybody help before I try it?
Hello. I tried the overclocked Kernel but now my iFive mini 3 Retina won't boot anymore. It stucks at Kernel splash screen and it doesn't work. How can I hard reset it? I'm not able to reflash it because it is not recognized.
Have you figured this one out? I haven't read through the whole thread so I'm not sure. I find that if I run my mini 3 too flat say, less than 5% battery, that if i try to turn it back on immediately after charging it will stick at the custom kernel boot screen.
If I leave it for 5 - 10mins on charge and then try to turn it on, it will work without problem.
