it isnt a script .. it is more complicated than that !

if you want to try  take a look at miniand .. they have a rom kitchen in there and it shows you how tear apart the rom and put it back together .. since the rom dump files are the boot.img, recovery.img and the system.tgz  .. you can use those to put the rom together .. in the end tho .. it dont work!

Thanks very much satcomranger,

I will work with this, and see what I can figure out, hopefully, be able to get this back into the running condition.  Was able to manually dd back the bootloader.img, boot.img, and recovery.img to get the Screen back to where it was suppose to be.  Now I just need to get Touch Screen, and I'm golden.

Just an update,

I've tried to go throught he guide on Miniand for "How to build custom LiveSuit images for flashing internally to MK802"  and have had no luck with the roms booting.  Sadly, all I need to do, is get is the /system/vendor/zet6221.ko file installed to the system, so that I can get touch screen, and I'm all set. :(

Hi Satcomranger,

I have just downloaded the firmware you were made for c345y,because i suspect i have the same tablet.I have downloaded almost 30 different firmwares,some of them didn`t worked,some of them worked,but had problem with auto rotating......that feat has never worked in those firmwares.Now i have installed the one you were made for c345y,and it works properly....except of the wifi and the internad sd memory.I can see wifi connectons but after giving the the password its stopes at "obtaining address".The other problem is that i can`t see the internal sd card.Is it possible pls to make a firmware out of this wich has working wifi,internal sd,and the working auto rotate?a Huge THANKS in advance.

satcomranger,

I just did something with mine, where I installed the V1.0 Rom of Uberdroid, dd back in the boot, bootloader, and recovery images that were created with the backup, then for the heck of it, pushed the zet6221.ko into /system/vendor/modules, and it has partial touch screen working.  I'm going to try and push the rest of the ko's from the modules of my backup, to see if I can get it to work fully, and let you know.  This may be a solution, albiet a bit of a hack / workaround.

satcomranger,

I did it, I made an image that actually works!  Boots back to the original factory dump that I did of the Tablet, before going through this fiasco!!!!

The steps that probably both you and me missed, was the fact, that with bootloader.img, we need to mount that in Ubuntu, and copy the files from it, to the a10_flash_kitchen/packer_ics/_bootfs.  What's basically happening right now, with following the method listed on the Miniand Tech website, without the copying of bootloader.img files over to _bootfs, is that there's a Empty Bootloader.  Once I copied over the files, and ran create_image.bat, and flashed it, it booted just perfectly!  WOOT!

The Additional prompts to add, just before create_image.bat:

Copy bootloader.img to your rom folder that your working in.

In terminal, type:

Code: [Select]
mkdir _bootfs
sudo mount -o loop bootloader.img _bootfs
<enter password>
cd _bootfs
cp -R * <path to a10_flash_kitchen mount>/packer_ics/_bootfs
sudo umount _bootfs

Then run create_image.bat, and your all set!

Try it out, and let me know.

*dances a little jig*

did you use any base image to extract first or did you just assemble a new one from the dummp files ?

I still used the Uberoid v1.0 version as a base, then mounted the system.img, and extracted system.tgz into the mounted system.img.  And I followed the steps for boot.img and recovery.img, but just to re-assembly them back into a fex file, to ensure that they are properly made.  Instead of extracting from the fex files that were extracted from Uberoid, I used the boot.img and recovery.img that was copied from the RomDumper.

so you used the boot.img, recovery.img from the rom dump over in the linux side when you tore apart the boot and recovery image  is that correct?  basically you used none of the files from the uberoid .  Am i reading your last post correctly?

Correct.  The main thing that is really needed, to get the drivers to recognize from the original dump, is the init scripts to insmod the modules.  I would start with the stock rom that you dumped first, to ensure that the process works, before going through, and adding the stuff from Uberoid.  Once you verify that you can flash your stock back in, save the image someplace safe, so that you have it, incase you ever need to go back.

And did you do the tar -xzf system.tgz into the system mounted image, to copy the files over from your RomDump system?

BTW, I do have full functionality of my tablet, minus the internal storage mounted to sdcard, I'm working that problem next.  But I have Rotation, and Touch Screen functionality.  Including the extra sensitivity of the Touch Screen, part of why I went looking for a new rom in the first place.  I have no calibration utility to dumb down the sensitivity of the Touch Screen, and Netflix crashing on me, everytime I try to start it up.

If you have the files from the original dump, and such, you can hit me up on IRC, and we can try to go through the process, and see if we can get a image created for you.  You can join me on http://webchat.freenode.net  Put in channel #hch-uberoid  if you don't have an IRC Client.

Not a problem satcomranger,

I've been redoing it several times over, as I attempt to get my sdcard mount back on my tablet, but it's definitely getting there.  I'm just glad I was able to figure out the issue, and provide you with the answers you needed to get the rom built. :D  Your welcome, now with both of us able to do this, we can handle getting some of these guy's requests to rebuild their original rom. lol

Thanks guys,

Couldn't have done it, if I didn't have some direction from satcomranger for where to find the a10_flash_kitchen to go through the debugging, and researching for this stuff.  There were to many Kitchens out there, to find the proper one, but thanks to satcomranger, I got the right one, and on the right track to figure out the issues. :D
