Need help unbricking SMARTPAD (cl arm m7)
Posted 12 January 2011 - 09:02 PM
Bought it from a unknown person
"SMART PAD" MID
Product # : CL - ARM M7
Kernel Version: 2.6.25 rockchip version 1.2.7
Build Number: RK-1.3.2.eng.root.20100827.91510
Camera in the front, NO LED, 9v charger., black plastic cover( for if this helps)
The disc says more updates will be available from chttp://www.chinaleap.com.cn/service.aspx.
(the link doesnt even work)
Dont know more tech details
This is what happened, i was upgrading the OS following this steps
but an error ocurred on the middle(think was the usb cable becausei had a lot of issues trying the pc to recognize it.) and now its bricked, doesnt turn on
tried to connect it pressing all the buttons and nothing, the pc doesnt recognize anything
first im gonna get a new usb, if doesnt i managed this steps so far.
i find user:hucqim80 steps to unbrick but its bassed on an APAD ( http://www.slatedroi...v6-0-solved/15/)
what i think i must do its open it, do the needle trick, but im not sure what program to use to put the firmware on it, and if i need more files than the .img file (mine its "from russia with love 2" custom firmware)
Any help would be really aprecciated. thanks in advance
p.s. sorry for my bad english

need a way to reset/reflash/maskmode something like that to revive it, the needle trick didnt worked, cant do i tbecoz the motherboard is different.
come on its sad to have a brick of 100dollars

tryed to reflash and couldnt, and now it doesnt turn on again but its recognized by the pc
when i try to reflash it stays on " error writing id block"
cant pass of that
tryed with rkbatchupgrade, rkandroiddm, and the one that came in the cd, and the same. and with different OS versions and still the same
IM assuming its the cable again, because i got another but used.
gonna buy a new damncable and try in another PC so i eliminate the fact of bad USB port.

but i cant calibrate the touch screen, any idea?
it seems like its calibrating but when it says, touch me, it says that the calibration failed....
