NEW - Information has come to light that the size of the system partition in the .cfg file is larger than the stock partition, as such to get it back to pure stock, please download and extract out HannsConfNEW.zip's hannsconf.cfg folder into the restoration folder, and overwrite the old .cfg file.
The following procedure will restore your tablet to an almost out-of-the-box/stock state/factory sealed system.
The reason it doesn't entirely take you back to the factory state, is that it relies on the use of the official update.zip files from the hannspree site (which you must download yourself) to get the tablet booting again properly.
If, you do have a backup of your system.img from when you bought your tablet, you can extract the contents of update.zip, replace its system.img with your own one, and re-zip the files again, that way you'll go back to a stock system partition.
It would still be good if people on the 623 and 653 could upload (as thread attachments) their part2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.img files just so people can use the .img files from their respective models (though they seem identical).
I used winmerge to see if there were any differences between the 633 and 653 partitions that I was sent, partitions 6 and 8 were different, so I have included the 653 versions in a seperate .zip file. Please note that while I have used them, and saw no difference whatsoever, and had no issues with them. They did come from a (at the time) bricked tablet, so - Use them at your own risk!
Don't bother uploading .img files 11 (recovery) 12 (boot) 13 (system) or 14 (some personal user data!) as they're not required.
On the subject of Partition 14, the restore only creates and formats an empty partition14, it does not put any information or data into it. This is to make sure that people don't accidentally publically share private data they'd rather keep private.
Please note that ALL instructions are compulsory for a successful return to stock, especially if you are restoring a brick!
Kick In (for his nvflash recovery, saved my tablet after honeycomb)
Various forums, with various members posting information and help.
The guide is included in the 7zip file as well (the 7zip file is within the zip file due to .7z files being a disallowed attachment), but here it is in full:
Hannspree Hannspad Stock Recovery.
I take no responsibility for any damage this does to your system/tablet, you use it at your own risk!
This will modify the partition structure of your device back to a stock (out-of-the-box) state.
You have been warned !
This Disaster Recovery Method will restore any of the following Hannspree Hannspad Models to their original stock state - SN10T130U1623, SN10T130R1633 and SN10T130U1653.
Please note however that part of the recovery proces involves the installation of the ClockWork Mod (CWM) Recovery partition which may or may not invalidate your warranty.
This is only a temporary installation, which is then overwritten with the proper Android Recovery partition to bring the device back to its true stock state.
This guide is written as though it were a forum thread, as such you may have done some steps already.
Please note that these steps were done on Windows 7, there should be no reason why XP or Vista should cause problems, but it is worth mentioning it here just in case.
0. Visit http://www.hannspree.com/webauth/
and get the latest update.zip
1. Extract the Stock_Restore folder to your desktop from out of the downloaded Stock_Restore.7z archive, you will require 7-zip (from 7-zip.org) or an archive manager capable of extracting .7z files to do this.
2. Open up the folder, inside you should see:
* A folder called 'APX USB Driver'.
* A folder called 'Restoration'.
* A Guide.txt file.
* A batch file named 'hanflash'.
3. Open up the update.zip file and extract the system.img and boot.img (but _NOT_ recovery.img) files from it into the 'Restoration' folder.
4. Once this is done, with the tablet powered off, plug in its usb cable, and connect it to the computer.
5. Now holding down the Volume-Minus key, power on the tablet.
6. Depending on what has happened to your tablet, you will either see the Hannspree logo appear, and then the screen becoming blank (but with the power light still on) or you will not see any logo, and then screen will always be blank (but with the power light still on). In the second case, wait a minute or two to make sure that the tablet has entered its special recovery (APX) mode.
- If you see the line 'Recovery key detected' in the top left hand corner, then this means that you have installed some form of non-hannspad firmware. In this case you will need to power off the device, and use the Volume-Plus key for step 5. -
7. Windows should now start trying to install drivers for the device, unless you have used APX mode on your computer/tablet before, this will not succeed.
8. Hold down the 'Windows' logo key on your keyboard, and while still holding it down, press the 'R' key. This should load up a run prompt.
9. In the text field, type:
And click the 'OK' button.
10. This will launch the device manager. You should see under 'Other Devices' a device either titled as 'Unknown device' or more likely 'APX'.
11. Right click on this, and on the menu that appears choose 'Update Driver Software'.
12. On the new window that loads, click on 'Browse my computer for driver software' and on the next window that appears click on the 'Browse...' button.
13. Using the folder tree, navigate to the 'Stock_Restore' folder and then double click on the 'APX USB Driver' folder.
14. Now click the 'Next' button, it is likely that Windows will complain that the driver is unsigned, so tell it that you wish to continue with the driver installation regardless of this.
15. Once this is done, you can check to see if it was successfully installed by checking the taskbars 'safely remove hardware' icon (the one used for ejecting usb/thumb/pen drives).
16. If there is no device listed called 'APX' then turn off your tablet, and repeat steps 5 and 6. Then check again. It does happen that sometimes you have to do this before your computer sees the device. Failing this, restart the computer, follow steps 5 and 6, and you should by then definately see the 'APX' listed in the 'safely remove hardware' icon's list.
17. In the 'Stock_Restore' folder, double click on hanflash.bat and follow the batch files instructions, menu choices are made by typing the number followed by the return/enter key. Should the batch file say 'USB device not found' or stick at 'NvFlash starting' power off the tablet, and repeat steps 5 and 6 again.
18. This completes the "Getting Started" section of the guide, the next section should be completed after the batch file has completed its own processes.
Finishing the Restoration Procedure.
1. Please now turn off your tablet after using the 'safely remove hardware' ony our computer to safely eject your tablet.
2. With the usb cable still attached between your tablet and your computer, hold down the Volume-Plus key, and turn on your tablet.
3. You should see the Hannspree logo appear, followed by the line 'Recovery key detected'.
4. This will boot you into ClockWork Mod (CWM) recovery mode.
5. Use the Volume-Plus/Minus key to navigate to 'Wipe Data/Factory Reset' and press your 'Home' key to select this menu item.
6. Now once again with Volume-Plus/Minus, navigate to 'yes --wipe data' and press your 'Home' key again to perform the wipe.
7. Once this is complete, you will be returned to the main menu.
8. Use the Volume-Plus/Minus key to navigate your way through the menu to 'mounts and storage' and press your 'Home' key to select this menu item.
9. Now, once again using the Volume-Plus/Minus key, navigate your way through the menu to 'mount USB storage' and press the 'Home' key again.
10. After a short while, your computer should find the internal storage of the device, once this loads up, copy and paste the 'update.zip' file over onto your device.
11. Once this is done, remove the tablet safely from your computer using 'safely remove hardware' and then press on your tablets 'back' button twice to return you to the main CWM menu.
12. Now using Volume-Plus/Minus navigate your way to 'apply sdcard:update.zip' and press the 'Home' key to select it.
13. Once again, use the Volume-Plus/Minus keys to navigate your way to ' Yes - Install /sdcard/update.zip' and press the 'Home' key to select it.
14. The installation process will now start returning your tablet to its stock state. Please ignore the error messages 'E:unknown command [bootloader]' as this is caused by CWM not having the ability to flash the bootloader, and is perfectly normal.
15. Once this has finished, you will be back at the main menu with 'reboot system now' highlighted. Press the 'Home' key to select this option.
16. The computer will now load up in a completely stock, out-of-the-box state.
17. And that's you finished, you can now delete the Stock_Restore folder/archive.
This is _NOT_ in the guide.txt included in the archive.
Since it may prove useful, and here is as good a place as anywhere to put it, through searching the internet I've found the following information out about the partitions. Anything with '???' is unknown.
BCT = The .bct file is a binary file version of the BCT Partition. It controls Internal hardware configuration. - part2.img
PT = partition table (also binary, it seems to contain addresses where each partition starts) - part3.img
EBT - ??? - part4.img
NVC - ??? - part5.img (My own guess is 'NVidia Cache').
MBT - ???? - part6.img (My own guess is 'Master Boot Table'.)
BLO - bootlogo - part7.img (First Hannspree logo - there are two that load up, both identical).
MSC - misc - part8.img (People say it's misc, but miscellaneous what?)
KLO - ??? - part9.img
OGO - ??? - part10.img
SOS - recovery - part11.img/recovery.img
LNX - boot - part12.img/boot.img
APP - system - part13.img/system.img
CAC - ??? - part14.img (According to another forum, this contains some user data - this ties in with my experiences too).
