i change module using this tutorial: http://www.slatedroi...on-any-atm7029/
 
and i have no idea why i get this error... its not for touch module, i have 1 firmware where not working touch but still working i flashed him and fixed touch but anyway i dont think it is for touch, because i change all modules who need.


Ok. The touch module of another tablet has broken some tablet in the past. So just for safety's sake.

TP. Usually ctp_detect is dealing it, but can load it without the detector.

I have had that error too but I don't remember if it has happened with this one too.
Just a long shot: Some stubborn flashing errors need full reboot. For both, tablet and PC.

Weird - I have to check and double check the fw files related to these.
Eventually I didn't have to change that much I originally changed, but
maybe I have changed something in some some files related to adfu mode,
that is files in %appdata%\PadModify\TMP\UserData\FW directory.
Again some checking to do. (Paths and such might not mach as my system's
paths are pretty much changed/"virtual". But I think this is the path showing
in a standard system...)

One thing might be different thought (althought it should not matter).
For flashing I used the files in %appdata%\PadModify\TMP\FW
directory. That is, they are there if you open the firmware in Pad Modify Tool.

Maybe less file swapping is need - eventually, but now you're in the right track.

Now compare the "bin_cfg.xml" files on "misc", your original and the new one.
The "lcd" part particularly, values are in the same order but the structure has changed.
Also check the "config.xml" and "gpiocfg.xml", the same thing, the structure (and naming) is different.

Use the new "pinctrl.xml". I wasted tons of time trying use my own, Crystal-2's that is.
It just didn't work. The differences were minimal but obviously needed...

The one I modified for my Ainol Crystal 2 will be here.
(Whether I manage to fix it's bugs or not...)

 
Well, several months has passed and I haven't been able - nor been that interested in - to fix all the bugs.
So, here it is if someone wants to try it and maybe even continue with it.
Removed all the leftover files from various tests and - well, read the readme.
 
Kitkat444-Demo-Firmware-for-AinolCrystal2_[cxz].exe.7z (To extract remove ".7z" from the end and run)
Download: https://yadi.sk/d/KSAAOjhB3AJrux
 
Below is the included Readme file. Have to add that if you flash the vendor.img then
the Kernel Tuner is installed. Be careful with it. Don't over tweak. Also disabling the
restoring of the settings on boot is advisable until you know what works and what doesn't.
ES File Explorer can be used for uninstalling it and other vendor stuff.
Also, CWM recovery is installed. To restore the stock flash " Stock Recovery Restorer "
from this thread: http://www.slatedroi...twrp/?p=1236906

Readme

Kitkat-Demo-Firmware-for-AinolCrystal2_[cxz].fw
-----------------------------------------------
 
Demo version. As usual, no guarantee of any kind. Use at your own risk.
 
There is unsolved bugs like the sound problem, maybe battery, etc...
http://www.slatedroi...pers/?p=1273674
 
Use the Pad Product Tool v.1.07 or newer for flashing.
When flashing a big fw package, partitions cannot be
chosen and flash is erased by default.
 
If you want to flash separate partitions, split the
firmware by running FW-splitter batch file included.
Then use the Pad Product Tool v.1.09 or older to flash
the PAD.fw file.
 
vendor_app.img just contains some extra apps used for testing etc.
Duet-Game.apk ES-FileExplorer.apk ES-TaskManager.apk KernelTuner.apk
TerminalEmulator.apk TheRiddleoftheBox-Game_[cxz].apk
 
All the original 7029C 4.44 files that were modified have been saved.
I also included their Crystal2's 4.22 counterparts for comparison.

More about Kitkat-Demo-Firmware-for-AinolCrystal2_[cxz].fw

The Pad Product Tool's "Make Card" option does work, that is the bootable?
card is created. But because of CWM recovery the installation doesn't work.

Made a stock recovery version. It worked fine but it seems to be only good for
updating. That is, the previous firmware must support booting from sd card.

What works: About everything, but there is a lagging for example in videos.
In local videos the picture lags behind and the YouTube videos have small pauses.
Sound has some odd noise (that is also present in 4.22. So I have been told.
Re-plugging fixed that for me.) Battery is acting in a weird way, drains fast
but then it lets you use the tablet with very low levels much longer than expected.

Recently I have been flashing some alpha and beta ROMs on a tablet. One issue is youtube lag, stuttering, and random pausing. It was corrected using kernel auditor and switchimg to balance mode, which eventually the developer made default.

It might be worth a little time switching governors and see if one is optimal for youTube over another.
