1. Power off the tablet
2. Plug tablet into PC
3. Run Livesuit and pick the image file you wish to use. The program will go to the 0% screen.
4.Hold down the volume down button (-) and continue to hold it.
5. Press the power button for just a second or two. (This can be tricky, too long and the tablet reboots.)
6.Now quickly press and release the power button 3 or 4 times. You will hear two connect sounds and Livesuit should prompt you twice to start the image. You can release the volume down and continue. Your tablet will now flash.

A couple of people have sent me PMs about broken buttons in the MIC hole. Remember it is best to use something blunt ended to press into the hole, like a paperclip bent straight, or take a pin and clip the tip off first.

Now where in the world did you come up with this?

Have you got some secret documentation that none of the rest of us has seen?

OCD and bored. I was having trouble with a busted button. So I was trying different buton combinations to get into bootstrap mode. The Pocket Primer uses a different system, but is similar so I was messing around with that combo and got it. Later I found some instruction an Allwinner sight that says you have to press the power ten times. But 3 or 4 work every time.

is it possible to do this is the tablet is stuck on the logo screen? it just keeps replaying over and over again, i hold the power button to turn it off and any time i try to turn it back on again it just goes back to the logo screen and keeps playing :/
i just got a new laptop and unfortunately the dreaded windows 8 is on it, any help i try to look up says nothing of windows 8. I'm pulling my hair out over here :/ any suggestions?
