What about taxes? Did you ask them to mark the item as a lower value?
How long did it take for you to get it?
How much did you pay for it??


Ups around US $35, tablet US $163.99
Total price with aditions = Total: US $209.40 (very good for me) :rofl:

Add
1pc screen protector
1pc HDMI cable
1pc 8GB sd card
1pc PU leather case,
UPS expedited shipping
Pls declare it as tablet pc valued $100, with shipping costs $20, total $120 (I made those comments to evade customs duties)

Anyone have an external Bluetooth adapter they can test out with this tablet? Want to know if Yuandao's firmware properly supports Bluetooth or not.


Hi Nickos-V,

I have tried testing my bluetooth dongle. FYI it is item number 160908990438 on the bay.
It comes up as ID: 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI Mode) if you use lsusb under Linux.

According to dmesg on the tablet it is recognised but gives an error and RFKILL seems to kill off any bluetooth activity:

<6>[ 2.333874] [BT_RFKILL]: Enter rfkill_rk_init
<6>[ 2.333947] [BT_RFKILL]: Request irq for bt wakeup host
<6>[ 2.333967] [BT_RFKILL]: ** disable irq
<3>[ 2.337060] usb 1-1: device descriptor read/all, error -71
<6>[ 2.354984] [BT_RFKILL]: bt shut off power
<6>[ 2.384983] [BT_RFKILL]: bt_default device registered.

I'm trying to find where this is to stop BT being disabled.

Also I was expecting to see a /system/etc/permissions/settings_disabled_menu_list.xml file with the bluetooth commented out but there is no file. So not sure how else to enable Bluetooth UI button on the Settings menu.

Jez
P.S. As an aside I got this dongle to try and get bluetooth on my MK808 TV Stick. I understand that only CM10 has the correct drivers avalable for this at present.

BTW for those asking earlier to get into flash mode it is the same as the N70 i.e.

1. Run RKBatchTool_1.5 and connect the USB cable on the PC
2. With power off press and hold Volume + on the tablet
3. Connect the USB cable to the USB OTG port on the tablet

If like me you have previously installed another RK3066 device on your PC this should be enough to get the green square in RKBatchTool ready for flashing the firmware. If not follow pretty much any of the guides already on here to install the correct driver. Actually the TNT Guide is probably one of the best I have seen.

For those asking about root as I stated earlier use Zhuodashi.

According to dmesg on the tablet it is recognised but gives an error and RFKILL seems to kill off any bluetooth activity:

Thanks Jez for trying.

One problem that should be fixed is:
<3>[ 2.337060] usb 1-1: device descriptor read/all, error -71

Searching Google for "device descriptor read/all, error -71" gave me some hits. With possible solution. Not sure why no IRQ with RFKILL but good to try fixing at least this error.

Solutions (disable USB suspend mode):
http://www.linuxques...22/#post3269374
&
http://www.linuxques...22/#post3157069

There might be a better way to fix it but I have not checked. Just found that in 5 mins. and good chance it may work.


Also, below could be the cause of error -71?:
** disable irq
Looks like IRQ was asked for but not given. Does BT use IRQ?

rfkill appears to control wireless devices (like BT):
http://linux.die.net/man/1/rfkill

Also try "rfkill list" & "rfkill event" & "rfkill unblock" in terminal which may give some clues as to what is happening.

That is all I found so far. Someone with more Linux kernel knowledge may have a fix for it.


EDIT:
This post looks interesting too:
http://ubuntuforums....68&postcount=15

Notice the change is to "usbcore.autosuspend" from 2 (seconds) to disabled (-1). Maybe setting to 5 or 10 or 30 seconds may work??? ie. 2 second suspend could be on the low side. Best to try -1 first to see if that works. Then 30. If that works, then 15, 10 & 5.

EDIT2: changed some instances of rkfill to rfkill
EDIT3: fix link in EDIT1.

*MINIX NEO X5 (RK3066) - OK. Not fun because uses mouse cursor.
*YUANDAO N80 DUAL (RK3066) - Very good
*CUBE U30GT (RK3066)- Defective; buttons broke in 2-3 weeks; Bad quality control!!! I will never buy a Cube again!!! - Very good while working
*WOPAD I7 (RK2918)- About OK. Sluggish because has weaker ARM chip (RK2918) & less RAM (512 MB).

Ok tried RFKILL unblock bluetooth which gave no errors but I still have the same error in dmesg.

Then I checked and there is no autosuspend file in /sys/module/usbcore/parameters/ although some of the other parameters mentioned in the Ubuntu forums post above are there. So I tried to create an autosuspend parameter file without any luck. I have tried Root Explorer and ES File Explorer both set to allow root access and with root and /system mounted as R/W. Neither of them would allow me to write a parameter file to that location. Could maybe try with adb.

Even if I get the device to give no errors there is still the issue of turning it on (enable Settings UI on/off switch) and getting it to be visible to other bluetooth devices.

Just in case; I did do a quick check with my Nexus 7 to see if it could see any other bluetooth devices but without any success.

Thanks for trying. Too bad it did not work.

Going to wait about 6 months and get a quad core, likely 8" tablet w/Bluetooth & IPS. That is why I bought a low cost N80 (non-IPS) tablet now to give me something to play with till then and get better feel for 8".

Settings UI may show up with working BT? Or maybe add something to build.prop to have it show?


PS, I may look at getting it to work too though I may get stuck at same place where you are at.

I had this always when i updated my Window N70, and always it disappeared quite fast.
I did not notice this when i did the update of the N80IPS.

I did not try to root N80IPS, but always succeed with ZhuoDaShi with RK3066 devices running JB.

Hi Nickos-V,

Yes, I think I will call it quits there. I was basing most of the work on this thread about getting a bluetooth usb dongle working on the MK808:

http://www.armtvtech...topic.php?t=232

I was able to get the bluetooth on/off UI working on the MK808 using the information therein.

Good luck with it if you take it any further. Let me know if I can help.

TBH I am thinking that this will be my last rk3066 tablet, despite being sorely tempted by the Pipo M8 and Ployer momo12.

The future beckons with some interesting quad core SoCs in the not too distant pipeline; Rockchip RK3188, Allwinner A31 and Exynos 4412 (not too impressed by early reports of the latter so far but I guess they need time to settle down) . I am tempted to wait this time though. As an early adopter of the Cube UT30GT-W I think I was lucky not to get a complete lemon; mine actually worked ok and is still going strong (so the current owner tells me)!

One thing that I think is outstanding with the N80IPS is the wifi. Rock solid 150mbps anywhere in the house! I really hope future quad core tablets don't skimp on their wifi specification.

Cheers
Jez

Today i received the Yuandao vido N80IPS, and after using it a few hours i am very satisfied. The IPS screen is beautifull, no dead pixels and very bright and sensitive.
It runs very smooth on android 4.1.1, no lag and freezes so far.
The wifi reach is very good, much better as the ployer Momo8 IPS, and simular with the teclast P85HD.
Build quality is good, the weight is indeed about 400 gram and the bezel is smaller as the one of the P85HD, and simular with the Momo8 IPS.
So until now the N80IPS is for sure worth the money i payed, (150 usd Eternal Team DHL shipping) and again no tax. :good:

I researched a few of the tablets using the rockchip 3066, settled on N80IPS myself, awaiting arrival of the tablet, you gave a positive review of the unit which kind of swayed my choice to it. Is the unit easily rootable? It already runs Jellybean so I am good with that.

1) Backup everything important from your tablet.

2) Download the firmware from S1eepy:
https://docs.google....W1sbjctT0k/edit

3) Search & Download RKBatchTool1.5en

4) Connect your Tablet and install the drivers in the RKBatchtool folder via Device Manager

5) Start RKBatchTool.exe and click on "Restore" to update the firmware. Wait for a success message
