thanks for the guide, much appreciated.

Am i right in assuming for part one, the device needs to be its 'out of box' state? so i would have to revert back to stock to do part one?

also, assuming i did that, then something when wrong, what do i do with the files to restore it?

thanks.

Part One can be performed at any time, and of course you're not limited to the number of times you do it during ownership of your tablet.

If you did do it in the out-of-box state, and made no other modified backups, then of course you would have no choice but to revert to stock state.

I'm currently still working on a restore system, http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/20583-could-someone-please-make-an-nvflash-backup/ (feel free to contribute to the last post) to restore the files, this is why I haven't yet posted it as another guide, but it's best to have got them just in case anyway.

Yes, part one and part two in the case of someone who has used their tablet for a while would back up in the current state.

The guide, while useful for everyone to be able to backup their tablet, is designed for people who have just bought the tablet and thus getting a nice clean OS backup made for sanity's sake.

ok, this is what i thought yes...

but part 3, when you are done will allows us to full restore back to out of box state for whatever reason someone may have to?

If all goes well in its creation then yes, but it's always better to trust your own backup over someone elses, which is why it's a good idea to backup as soon as you get the tablet (hence the guide). I myself didn't know of nvflash backups, so I fell into the trap that I'm trying to save others from.

Hi there

First of all, can I just offer my humble thanks for such a fantastic piece of work for an android noob like myself. Perfect.

I'm having the same problem with the 'backup' download though? Makes it to a couple of megs, says it's done, then when you try to extract - even using 7zip - it tells you the file is broken.

Any help gratefull received. I'm slowly trying to pick my way through things to get the most out of this tablet.

Thanks again

Thanks for the info.

While carrying out Part 1, seems to get stuck transfering partion 14. Have to close command line & then end up with a file size of 108,800KB for part-14.img. Does that seem ok or has something gone wrong? I have stock 1633 model.

Cheers.

Edit: Just read that partion 14 isn't restored, so not worrying too much. Have CWM back up saved as well.

Thanks again, great help! (Better safe than sorry!)

I'm currently in linux so can't help much with windows 7zip issues, but all I can suggest is trying a download manager to download the attachment such as freedownloadmanager.org or if using firefox I think its called DownloadAll (bad that I use it and cant remember the name).

From what I've read, if it gets stuck then it means you have a bad section of flash on your storage, and you'll just not to be able to backup part14.img (which most of the time doesnt seem to restore anyway).

The last entry in the text file is
PartitionId=14

Many many thanks for this thread!
It helped me come back from an almost bricked tablet!

I has installed HannsTitan-v0.2d on my tablet and it worked great for a while.
But once it had been turn off by holding the power button down too long, and then turning it back on, I got stuck on the Hannspree startup logo.
I could not even boot to the recovery mod!

But after running the restore, I was able to get manufacturer recovery (as it overwrote the custom one) and then was able to rerun the rom installations!

MANY THANKS AGAIN!

Scrap that! The pad just dies everytime its rebooted!

I did a power off, and back on and again it stuck at the Hannspree logo.

Anyone know what could have caused this
I put the stock rom back on it and still the same.
