Excellent news, I am not sure about the partition map to be perfectly honest but our friends over at the Russian forum are due to release their work around soon which we should probably use to get your tab back to a pucker partition structure.

For ADB access just install the generic Google USB Driver package from within Android SDK Manager

Argh! It seems I still have standby issues. Could that possibly be due to missing cache partition during flashing? I might be looking at another reflash, this time with fastguy's fdiskcmd.txt with edited values. Hopefully it might go without error 256... I have also contacted supplyer and he is trying to pass me the latest firmware.

Standby and camera are known issues on SSv5

Would you mind testing a new 8GB fdisk.cmd file bbq100 has posted on XDA?

I was not lazy today, so I went over one of the fdiskcmd.txt that was failing with my tab's internal mem.

I got two out value errors, with defaults offered that worked, so I removed two values from fdiskcmd.txt. Last partition display is the one that is probably supposed to be created by fdisk script, and is different from what I have, which is this:

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/block/mmcblk0p1 20250 11001419 5490585 83 Linux
/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 11001420 11392649 195615 83 Linux

/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 13393368 14370209 488421 83 Linux

I will post my fdiskcmd after I test it. I am quite confident it will resolve error 256 for all tablets which have the same internal 8GB memory as mine.

This is real good progress zdravke and exactly what this forum is all about


If however you do not succeed with the fdisk.cmd manipulation, our friend bbq100 from XDA has sent me the details of an MBR image we could send to the SD card via MfgTool that may circumvent the dreaded 256 error!

I also noticed that in old script, first partition starts at sector 20250. I changed this to start from first sector, whatever that is. Is there any reason why I should not do that?

My dear friends, here's fully operational 8GB fdiskcmd.txt, worky all the way. Unfortunately, I cannot expect it to work on all internal cards, as they might differ in size, but this one is certainly more forgiving then others, since it uses defaults instead of strict sector values, where possible.

Hey sorry to hear that you are still stuck on the 256 error, a few people have reported the recovery pack as working!

There are some clever guys on a Russian forum who have apparently got a different fix to the 256 error without using the fdisk file but I have not tested it yet. I have been using Google Translate to try to understand\follow what they are doing but perhaps this would be easier for you, assuming of course you are a native Russian:

http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=213335

If you manage to get a fix from the 4pda forum, we would be grateful to hear back from you with your translation

Best of luck

OK, thank you very much. Now my device stucking on title "Android_" and "_" is blinking.
I'll go try the firmware from 4pda) Thank you for your help!!! Later I will write about the result.
