Are you doing the nand erase? I did an unbricking today and it stopped at 8%. I tried to do a nand erase and it did the same thing when I held down the power and home buttons. If I held down the power and vol- buttons to start it, then it worked to 100% but the next time I tried that didn't work and I had to hold down the power and home buttons to do that and to start the firmware flashing process.

There is a check box for the NAND erase in the software. There seems to be a difference between the different modes that the software enters depending on which button combos you use. Hopefully power and home will work better for you.

I managed to unbrick my Crystal.

I never got past 8% on my first(30+) attempts but I still tried the SD card as Tigger-gg had found that progress to 8% is "enough". I kept switching USB-ports and USB3.0 port (Asmedia controller) on Asus GENE-Z installed new "worldcup device". Before it installed M6-chip but i'm almost sure that i saw M3 on installation window that time. I still didn't get past 8% and only thing that seemed different was that Burning tool reported that it had wrote ~500000 bytes instead of ~148000 that it had transferred before and last report from Burning tool was "current step is 2".
After this the tablet booted from SD card and installation worked automatically as it was meant. I used "1212_AML_burn_recovery.zip" when i succeeded.

EDIT: Forgot to mention about Windows 8. Win 8 seemed to start two parallel operations with Burning tool on two differrent ports and delay between processes was few seconds. I have no idea if Burning tool is actually overwriting data that it had just written but I had no confidence on Win 8 (with this matter).

Stock Win 8 does not accept unsigned drivers so little effort is required to make it accept them.

yes, great! :good:
but for me it was new...
I have missed the post where you said it..

So, run USB burn tool without any update/patch and then try if some of those "softer" methods work..
Could it be that simple?

That's my bad because I just haven't had the time to update this thread. I'm so far behind on my development hobby here. The deal is pretty much that, as long as you can get past the point where it writes u-boot, you should be able to use the SD method to complete the process. In most cases at least.

Just so other people everyone knows where ferchyfer is at, this is his report:

Hello again everyone, there is 2 tablet once crystal brick, now lot 1, use usb recovery when it reaches one hundred percent in device manager recognizes as "nexus", and now comes my big question that is driving me crazy I tried using "elf 0527.img, rescue.img fire, crystal batch 1 rescue.img" is now supposed to move to the micro sd card, then put the sd in the tablet pulse - + on and would have to turn but this does not happen, someone can tell me how to fix it, thanks a greeting.


So as far as I understand it the tablet made it through 100% with the AML software but she/he is having trouble with the SD card method to complete it. If the AML method was a completed I believe that means the tablet would need the batch 2 recovery. I mentioned that it is the power and vol- buttons that are used to auto-flash it. Also mentioned that if the none of the images used are working, try using the elf2 image and then deleting the files on the sd card and placing the ones from the 1119 rescue image on instead. If anyone else can jump in to help, please do, as I don't speak his/her language and there seems to be some major google translate issues here. Thanks everyone!

I would suggest that if someone speaks Spanish they should PM ferchyfer or do a translate document like other have done for Russian.

ferchyfer, I am sorry but I still can't really understand. Perhaps it is an SD card format problem and you can use SD Formatterwith the "FULL (Overwrite)" setting to reformat your SD card.

Ferchyfer:
You need to understand that Google translate does not make you understandable. You write a lot and it's almost like spam.

Use dashes(-) to make a list and tell every step that you have completed and be specific about the problem. Use short sentences.

Thank you for your hard work. I really appreciate what you have done and what you probably will do. ;-)

I was able to load the u-boot on the tablet (8%). But as I try to insert the SD card, nothing seems to work. When I have pluged the tablet into the PC there is no recognition any more. If I remove the SD card the tablet shows up again. Is there something I can do?
