Unbricking my dated Yarvik Noble 97ic+ (Tab09-410) - RockChip 3188 based tablet

Recently I have found in my drawer an old Yarvik Noble 97ic+ (Tab09-410) tablet, I got around 2014. Unfortunately it had a broken DC charging connector and the microUSB wasn't enough to kickstart it back to life. So I decided to disassemble the tablet and after some time I managed to charge it and actually turn it on. It booted up and everything. I left it to charge a bit more, but after coming back I found that the tablet no longer boots and all I can get is the "YARVIK" logo stuck on the screen. I have found another customer with exactly the same problem - He charged the tablet for a bit too long and bricked it.

What I can do with the tablet is get it to show with the "adb devices" and I can get it to STOCK recovery, which unfortunately only allows to flash images verified by the manufacturer. I tried all the options in recovery - wiping the cache, data/factory reset and recovery system from backup.

The Yarvik brand, which was a small company in the Netherlands went bankrupt a while ago and there isn't any support or stock firmware images on the web. I only found some dead links here on, where I also found some users that successfuly flashed a newer android - a rom for Odys Iron CM12.1 lp 5.1.1 (stock is 4.2.2)

When I reboot it into bootloader the screen is completely dark and "lsusb" command shows only the usb port without any device name.

When I tried the "adb reboot-bootloader" command in the console, the device is no longer recognized (with fastboot devices). I assumed it might be because of missing windows drivers, so after trying a whole bunch of them I connected the device to linux with same results. When I reboot it into bootloader the screen is completely dark and "lsusb" command shows only the usb port without any device name. Therefore I cannot install any custom recovery like CWM or TWRP which would allow to flash another than the original Yarvik image.

Is there anyone that could provide the original Yarvik "Tab09-410.img"? Any help is widely appreciated. Thank you for your precious time.
