I get the same bootloader error and have no idea what it means, so no help there.

I did eventually - after lots of stuffing around! - manage to root my Aurora though. What have you tried to root it?

Is this the same problem as from your other post a month ago? Did you try the Johim root patch from my reply to that post?

You need to provide the list of steps you have done.

It is normal to see this when you enter recovery mode:

E:Bad bootloader arguments
"(null)"
E:unknown volume for path [/udisk/factory_upgrade_param.aml]
E:Can't mount /udisk/factory-update-param.aml


Now:
  • Have you formatted your external SD Card as FAT32. This is the card you are putting into the microSD slot, not the internal one in the device.
  • Have you copied the ROM file to the ROOT directory of the external microSD Card. (in 0626 it is Novo7-Aurora-II.zip if you got it from the PINNED ROM thread).
  • Did you leave the Novo7-Aurora-II.zip file zipped? Do NOT extract the files to your external microSD Card. Keep the Novo7-Aurora-II.zip file as is and just copy to your external microSD Card.
  • Did you put the external microSD card in your tablet?
  • Did you wipe data and cache?
Now if all that is ok,

  • Select 'Apply update from sdcard'
  • Browse to the signed zip using the down volume key.
  • Click on the power button.
  • Watch recovery apply the ROM.
  • Once it is done, click on Reboot.

for the battery stuck problem, you should read the pinned threads again.

I already download johim root 0705, i already format my external MicroSD card to FAT32....
but when i enter the recovery mode, i select apply update from sdcard , my ainol cannot browse to the file....
it says...

E:failed to mount /sdcard (invalid argument)
E:cannot mount /sdcard (Invalid argument)

at the top, it note like this :

/sdcard.....

../

1. i didn't extract the zip file
2. i already put the file in the root of external microSD

is it necessary to wipe data, wipe cache, and wipe media partition when using johim root?

Normally the "E:Failed to mount /sdcard (Invalid argument)" message is due to your SDCard not being formatted correctly. Check the format is FAT32. Also check the cluster size. It might be fussy on the block size.

Finally, if you are still getting the message, try another microSD card. Have you tested the card for errors?

If you are downgrading ROM, you should wipe data, cache and media partition.

The microSD has to be formatted in FAT32 with cluster size 32kb...
I use mini tools partition to format that microSD...
The johim root is done!!
Now i want to fix the battery stuck percentage....

I'm Having this problem :(
Whenever I boot into the android recovery this is what i get :

E: Bad bootloader arguments
"(null)"
E:failed to mount /sdcard (No such file or directory)
E:failed to mount /sdcard (No such file or directory)
E:failed to mount /sdcard (No such file or directory)
E:failed to mount /sdcard (No such file or directory)
E:cannot mount /sdcard (No such file or directory)
E:Can't mount /sdcard/factory_update_param.aml
E:unknown volume for path [/udisk/factory_update_param.aml]
E:Can't mount /udisk/factory_update_param.aml

If i select apply from sdcard
This is all i get :

Choose a package to install:
/sdcard

../

The recovery isn't able to mount the internal sd card :(
I'm not able to install CWM recovery, because of which i'm not able to install new roms. :(

This seems to be the problem only with the internal sd card, the external sd card has no problem mounting..But i'm not
able to install the CWM recovery using the external sd card :(

I've been googling and searching for the last 2 days nothing helped :(
I tried to format my internal sd using SDFormatter and mini partition tool..nothing worked :(
Feeling really lost.
Can someone please help me? :(

The above mentioned solutions are not working for me..I tried all of them :(
