@bklm1234 Thanks for your answer!

 

But what is described I already did more than 1 time, but without any success. I still got the error 10 in the the Windows device manager on the Rockusb device. I even booted W8 with driver signing off, but makes no difference. It stays on code 10. I even tried it on my Surface Pro, but with the same result.

 

Is there another way to flash firmware on the X2, maybe from SDcard?

I hope someone can help me with this.

Pierre,

I have an idea what your issue may be.

1. Rockchip processors have a unusual property when it comes to power. If 5V external power is provided to a Rockchip based device that is powered down, the device will power itself up and attempt to boot. This means that when power is provided to your tablet by connecting it to it's adapter or to a PC's USB port, the device will immediately power up.

2. When the tablet powers up, it immediately looks to see if the volume up button is depressed and if so, it goes into a special flash mode. You will know if it is in flash mode, because the display will remain dark, in order to consume as little power as possible during the flash process. If you are seeing the boot screen on your tablet, you are NOT in flash mode.

3. Windows will see one device ID when your tablet is in flash mode and another device ID when it is not.

In flash mode, the HW ID should be:

USBVID_2207&PID_310B&REV_0100
USBVID_2207&PID_310B

It showed in Device Manager as "Unknown Device".

I am running Windows 7 64 bit, so I right clicked the Unknown Device and selected Update Driver Software and then Browse my computer for driver software.

I then browsed to:

E:Rockchip_Batch_Tool_v1.7RockusbDriverx64win7

and Windows recognised the device and installed the drivers.

Device Manager then showed a new device category:

Class for rockusb devices

and a new device:

Rockusb Device

I then launched the batchtool without even rebooting and was able to flash successfully.

 

In normal android mode, Windows detects:

2 Portable Devices of class WPD FileSystem Volume Driver that are assigned drive letters

AND

1 Other Device named ifiveX2 with the following HW ID:

USBVID_2207&PID_0010&REV_0222&MI_01
USBVID_2207&PID_0010&MI_01

I have USB debugging enabled, so I am pretty sure this is the ADB (Android Debug Bridge) device.

 

If you are actually in flash mode, but getting those driver errors, I would start by right clicking on your current non working device and select uninstall. If it gives you an option to delete the drivers then do so.

After that, right click on your PC name and select Scan for HW changes. It should redetect the device after which I suggest trying a clean install of the drivers.

Hope this helps

One last thing. This is a link to a detailed procedure that I wrote for installing Picuntu linux on a Rockchip based device and it does include some pretty detailed instructions on installing the Windows drivers.

@tecknight Thanks for the very good help!!!

I tried it all but nothing helps. I have noticed the Ebay seller about this, and I can send the X2 back to Shenzhen, and get a refund. I think there is something wrong with it, because sometimes the screen begins to flash and looks like hanging. I will order a new one, because it is a very fast, beautiful and smooth device. 

I will be back here when the new device has arrived. Thanks again for the big help!

@pierre118: I tried.  I got the same thing as you.  No recovery screen.  Can you get a hold of a Windows 7 or Windows XP pc?

Thanks! But I will send my device back to the reseller, and get a refund. But, I will buy a new one!

Flashing a new image to your IFive X2

Note: This process will completely wipe your Android partition, replacing it with the selected image.
It you would like to save your apps and/or data you should perform a backup before flashing your tablet. This process does not require a rooted X2, but if the image you are applying is rooted, this process will grant you root access on your X2.
 
1. Download the Rockchip_Batch_Tool 1.7 from here:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/kmjc734ecc9yml5/Rockchip_Batch_Tool_v1.7.rar

2. Extract it to a known folder on your PC.
3. Disconnect your X2 from all power sources and shut it down.
4. Connect a micro USB cable to the X2 but not to your PC yet.
5. Press the right side of the volume button (the volume +).on your X2.
6. While continuing to hold the button down, plug the other end of the USB cable into a PC running Windows XP, 7, or 8.
7. If your X2 does not display an image at all, congratulations. You are in flash mode.
8. Windows will detect a new device, but will be unable to automatically install the drivers. You should now see an Unknown Device in Device Manager.
9. Right click the Unknown Device and select Update Driver Software and then Browse my computer for driver software, then browse to where you extracted it to.

Continue to the following folder:

Rockchip_Batch_Tool_v1.7 \ Rockusb \ Driver \ <your architecture> \ <your OS>
Once you have selected the folder, click OK. Windows should now detect the driver files and install them.
Device Manager will then show a new device category:

  • Class for rockusb devices

and a new device:

  • Rockusb Device

10. You can now launch the Rockchip_Batch_Tool 1.7. It should show a green box, indicating a device in flash mode.
Select the .img file you wish to flash, then click the Restore button. The batchtool will erase your old android partition and replace it with the new image, wiping out any applications or saved settings.

Hi TecKnight,

Firstly thank you for your useful post.

With regards to point no. 10 above where you stated that once Rockchip_Batch_Tool 1.7 is launched, the intended .img can be selected. Does it also apply if I wish to flash the latest official version say, 1.1.5 which is titled "update", then I just select that particular image?

Thanks,

Brumby

Brumby,

The only type of file that is valid to image a Rockchip based Android device is an .img file,

The only way to apply the .img file to the device is to use the Rockchip Batch Tool, a PC based flasher program that handles the low level USB flashing protocol between a PC and a Rockchip device that has been placed into a special slave state where the Rockchip device follows any commands send by the batch tool.

The only images that are available for any Rockchip based device, are files with a .img extension.

The img file may be downloaded as a .rar or .zip file, but if you extract the archive, there will be a .img file inside it.That is the file you must select with the batch tool.

This is a screen cap of the Batchtool screen after an .img file has been selected.

Kasty,

I really appreciate your hard work on this image. It makes a huge difference!!

I have created a main wiki page and an even more detailed flashing guide for the iFive X2 at the following links:

iFive X2 main wiki page

iFive X2 detailed flashing guide

 

I also strongly recommending that any X2 owner wanting english on their tablet flash your image.

Thanks again !!

hi.. im a 3month user of ifive mini 2. i dont have the idea how to root it using the  Rockchip Batch tool bcoz the instruction is for arnova .i downloaded the file already (kasty fnf ifive x2) .. 

help!! FrownFrownFrownFrownFrownFrown

htpnkyllw

kasty's image is pre-rooted. This means that by simply flashing this image to your iFive X2 and booting up the image, you will have root. Just install Super SU from Google play (a free app) once your system boots into kasty's image.

encoding and converting a test movie to 29.97 fps is taking a while.  Hopefully it's done when I go home.  I'll report on that.

 

In the meantime, I tried different video players.  I tried Act 1, Dice, MX, Easy, MOBO, VPlayer, BS, QQ, and RockPlayer2.  RockPlayer2 is drastically better, much smoother.  It's close enough to my acceptable standard.  Give it a try.  I didn't think the player mattered but it does.

reporting on the 1080 29.97fps movie: maybe I was not doing it right with Handbrake, the 1080 29.97fps plays about the same as the 720 24 fps version on MX player.  The audio at certain spots got out of sync'd.  Encoding movies at 29.97 fps requires more research on my part.  So I can't quite conclude 29.97 fps helps the choppiness.  1080 resolution is certainly very sweet.  The file size is more than double though at > 9 gig.  I had to reformat my microSD to NTFS because FAT32 can't handle that big.
