Hi,

Would someone be so kind and provide mirror for latest Chuwi V88s firmware from (http://www.chuwi.com/index.php?m=Download&a=index&id=51).

I've been trying to download the file for couple of days, but it cancels the download after proceeding to 5-10mb.

Would really like to try out the newest one, since I have some strange behavior with the one which was factory installed and also with
timeless RC1 (apps get stuck and the overall usability of the tablet is very slow).

I'm looking for the one with description, as this matches serial number of my tablet:

V88S2013 updated on September 6 4.2 System Firmware (This firmware is only for body serial number is V88S 16G1130800001 beginning and after the body serial number)

Thanks!

drealock,

You make a good point in that I don't believe we have any of the v88s firmwares mirrored on this forum. It would be great if v88s users could start obtaining and mirroring these firmwares to better support this model.

Thanks,

smithmal

i am in China, but even with Chinese connection this filehosting drops and it's difficult to download it, it would be better to talk directly with Chuwi to start uploading at least to pan.baidu.com and not that crappy site Xunlei

Easiest way is to setup a Google drive account (it's free). Upload it to the your Google Drive and set the sharing privileges so that everyone that has the link would have access to the file. Then post the Google Drive link to the firmware here on the forum.

Please share your experience with the latest firmware
Just finished installing software after flashing the firmware and everything seems to be working super smoothly. No more non responsive apps and sluggish UI.

So I'm very happy with this FW so far, thanks!

would it be possible to write also what link is for which firmware? since i dunno by names, none of them seem to be matching this firmware:
V88S2013年09月06号更新的4.2系统固件(此固件仅适用于机身序列号为V88S 16G1130800001开始和之后的机身序列号)

so am I right that this V88S FIRMWARE #1:
CW V88S-2013_09_06ケフシ.rar (270.8 MB)
https://mega.co.nz/#!E9hgiQjD!IpYi81VLp2K9fJIWTTDsnzA1bVslAE9t1PWymzXS-rc
equals this - CW V88S-2013_09_06固件.rar 270.76MB
http://kuai.xunlei.com/d/POSyBwI0PQB2rTJSd34
so this one should be appropriate for V88S with serial higher than 16G1130800001?

and this one V88S FIRMWARE #2:
V88S_2013_0908ケフシ.rar (271.1 MB)
https://mega.co.nz/#!c1xGXDab!YRytxwv4F7D0V1ToJvNGBVAKagBGO3Wx75s4slk_-QU
equals this - V88S_2013_0908固件.rar 271.08MB
http://kuai.xunlei.com/d/POSyBwObygCxjTJSf0e
?

drealock which one you flashed, #1 or #2? because it seems you should have flashed #1, but you seem to responded about flashing before the link was posted here

I flashed #2, V88S_2013_0908. I have sn. 16G1130801577, but the second one works just great.

but according Chuwi.com website you seem to flashed incorrect, strange it's not bricked, I'd not be surprised if you would have some hidden problems occuring later, it would be nice to have release notes to know what are actual differences between them and why they separated them by serial number, since I know for sure 1307 and 1308 had inside flashed same firmware since I own both

I also flashed the latest 08 09 version to my V88s. No issues and pretty responsive and about 19000 points in antutu. But whatabout the multiwindows feature? How Do I enable it, or do I have to download an app or another firmware?

hey guys my chuwi v88s has the serial 16G1130702241.. does that mean there is no new firmware for my device?
i'm running timeless rc2 but it's pretty sluggish so I want to switch back to the original firmware...

groovey, multiwindow should be in main System settings menu, if it's not there then it's not present in the firmware you flashed I guess, from what I've read on official Chuwi forum it seem to be absent

mrchrister, you can flash firmware #2 September 8th, from my post, while it seem everyone here is flashing wrong firmware not according Chuwi instructions, that for devices produced in August and beyond (...1308...) they should flash #1 Sep 6th firmware and for devices produced before August (...1307...) it should be flashed with firmware #2 Sep 8th

according Chuwi forums, if you will flash wrong firmware there can be problem with charging or some power problems, so those people who flashed September 8th firmware into August device (...1308...) do you experience any problems with charging or powering on? while they write about September 6th firmware that if tablrt will freeze you must wait until battery will run out and then it should be possible to flash it with this newer September 8th firmware, only difference they mention is to be careful if your serial number has Q for Quad in the beginning, which is strange since I thought all V88S have quad core CPU
