FOR BLUETOOTH VERSION ONLY!

This thread is going to be just simply for repacks of the stock rom, what this means is that until I push out custom roms, these roms would be good to use with minor modifications.

So far CWM isn't that high of a priority. The inclusion of the generic CWM in other repacks are useless for flashing roms at the moment. I've already found other means to easily flash custom roms.

Simple. There recently have been a rise in reports about apps possibly misusing root access. For example, some users download "free apps" from dodgy places which might take advantage of root access to do nasty stuff. Hence this is why I disabled root by default to give people the option of enabling root if they wish too. Saying that, most of us are sensible users and use root access for stuff like titanium backup, setcpu etc. Those are safe apps.
Features
  • Root disabled by default. (Can be enabled via "Root Enabler download link below")
  • Debloated of chinese apps
  • Zipaligned to optimise ram usage
  • Build.prop mod to Nexus 7 for greater PlayStore compatibility
  • Disabled Chuwi bootanimation as it is slow
  • Set to English language by default

Tools

Repack Downloads
  • 25th May 2013 Repack (DOWNLOAD HERE) [Noteworthy fixes include fix touchscreen hang and improve power consumption]
  • Root Enabler (DOWNLOAD HERE) [NOTE: DOES NOT WORK ON ANYTHING ELSE OTHER THAN MY TIMELESSV88 REPACKS]

Instructions on how to flash
  1. WARNING: Flashing this repack will wipe your device including the internal SD card (aka Internal Storage), Strongly recommend that you remove external SD card
  2. Download my RkBatchTool v1.6
  3. Connect Chuwi V88 to PC (if PC does not detect download and install drivers from the tools section of this post)
  4. Select the repack image in RkBatchTool
  5. Press Switch
  6. Wait till the pink box turns green
  7. Press upgrade
  8. Wait till its done
  9. First boot might take a little longer than expected
  10. Once booted, V88 will lag for a while as it is still initializing
  11. Done!
  12. If you require root, run TimelessRootEnabler after you have flashed the rom.

If you like what I've done consider donating a beer! It'll encourage me to keep up my good work!

Lambstone,

Thanks for taking the time to create these repacks. It is much appreciated. I look forward to your upcoming custom ROM.

Did you download the root enabler zip file?

Download that, extract, double click root enabler.

The root enabler does not root anything else other than my TimelessV88 Repack.

hi lambstone

I'm a bit of a nob and a newby inregards to android tablets.

Can I verify the steps when enabling rooting.

1) At which step do we run the root enabler ?
2) I haven't flashed the new version of the firmware, should i do that before or after the rooting ?

No problem.

I've updated the main post. You run the rootenabler after you have flashed the firmware/rom.

This rootenabler simply enable root on my roms. It doesn't root any other firmware so you'll have to do that after flashing.

Nice!! I will try this one cause I want to fix the touchscreen hang which is bothering me on TNT's repack. Will also do the root enabler.

However, any reason why you make the root disable by default?

Hi, I tried your root enabler.
First I updated the tablet to your ROM.
I restarted the tablet and enabled debugging.
Then I reconnected the tablet and started your batch file. Unfortunately I always receive an error message , device not found.
When I start the rk batch tool I get a pink sign - means its connected.
What am I missing?
My laptop runs win 8.
Thanks for your help.

As for me, I've been using this for a few days and I have yet to experience the touchscreen hang.

It makes perfect sense!!! Great thinking on this part. Cause I do have some of my users corrupting the OS and unable to boot up. And I suspect they installed some goofy apps that caused it. Having a non-root will definitely avoid this thing especially for some non-tech savvy user who doesnt know the difference.

That would be because my TimelessV88RootEnabler does not work on anything else other than my TimelessV88 repacks/rom on a Chuwi V88.

I have mentioned it once at http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/76193-timeless-v88-repacks/page__view__findpost__p__866193 but I did not update the main post. I have now updated the main post to say that.

Since you're trying to root a nexus device, I suggest you have a look over at XDA forums.

yes, this is your timelessv88 repacks. And nothing has been done on it that modify anything. It is still fingerprinted as nexus 7. The only problem is when I plug this into my PC, android drivers does not get installed. So I adb command cannot detect this chuwi device plugged into my PC.

Oh, that makes sense now. Though, it does not identify itself as a Nexus7 in adb. The Nexus7 mod relates only to the PlayStore, it does not affect ANYTHING else.

That shouldn't be the case. Are you sure USB debugging is turned on?

ok, I have removed the gt-i9300 detected device. Then I replug the tablet and this time my device manager detected nexus 7. However, I let windows search and install the driver and it failed to find the drivers.

I tried adb remount and i get error saying no device detected. Any idea? and yes, usb debugging is on.

ADB remount or any adb commands won't work because your PC does not detect the device. This means that the adb drivers are somehow not installed.

Ok. There is one last thing that I can think of that you should try.
Uninstall all related drivers. Remove the Nexus7 or Chuwi device from device manager. Download the driver pack on my main post. Refresh device manager, DO NOT let windows search and install drivers, they won't find anything. Select drivers manually and direct it to my driver pack (extract it please).

If this doesn't work, lemme know and we'll work something out.

If it works, consider a donation. It'll motivate me to keep up the good work.
