But why are mine smaller? No matter if I generate them in Windows or in Linux (Mint) or in a Virtualbox Linux (Mint). And must they really have the size of 64kb to work? I hope you will receive a new sd-card asap.

I made the scripts for you. They should work, although I've just noticed they are 65kb. Please PM me your email address, I'll send them to you.

Thanks, PM is on its way.

I did just read your post #244 again and I think I have an explanation for my "64kb-issue". You wrote that you erased all before the real first line "fatload mmc 1 0x41000000 set_bootargs", but did you also erase the whole filling stuff at the end of the file? I did that. In Notepad++ this stuff is shown as many many NUL (about 60kb).

Thats it! I'm now running Inspiration 0.4 with a 2GB data-partition. For an unknown reason the utscripts seem to have a minimum size to be executed (maybe a bug in the bootloader). After I included the fill-stuff the update worked.

Good! Glad you were able to finish the work! Now all we need is to post a detailed procedure with the necessary attached files. And you are right, I didnt erase the data at the end of the scripts.

Now if we could get the tablet to boot from the sd card, we could repair all those bricked devices. I'm looking into it. The guys at HTC mania are getting closer.

Download the following content and unpack it in your Rom-directory. Overwrite existing files. Copy whole content of the directory (13 files) to sd-card and start update in the usual way.

This should work with original Rom and with Inspiration too. Don't forget to backup your internal sd-card, it will be erased.

Voyo_A15_2GB_data_extention.rar (27MB)

@Steve Mars, it would be nice if you include this patch in your next version. Cardreader-app is lost, because I used the userdata.img from Hyundai-Rom. Btw., you wrote about boot-problems from sd-card. Please check the utscript-minimum-size issue. With script-sizes of about 2KB my tablet does not boot from sd-card / execute the utscript. I wondered why Voyo/Urbetter filled up the scripts with NUL at the end, but there is a (hidden) sense.

This is a great works, my friends ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡
Perfect, I´ve include this patch in my next version. In HTCMania forum we are trying the rescue SDcard with the help of jolocotroco, of Dropad forum.
One thing, I´m thinking use userdata.img for flash non-system app, like data/app in rom´s witk CWM or TWRP, and so you can unistall without problems if you wish. Your userdata.img not neccesary for the new utscript, right?

Thank you very much for everything, really ¡¡¡.
Greetings.

In this case it is necessary, because you need a userdata.img with 2GB extracted size (2000MB here, not 2048MB). The one from the Hyundai rom has this size. In your "Posible solucion a los brickeos"-thread at htcmania the user CPRO described how to make a 2GB img by yourself, but I failed while packing the raw-image into an img-file (make_ext4fs shows errors I can't solve, because I'm not a Linux expert), so I used the Hyundai's userdata. There are only some newer Google-apps in there.

The thank goes to Sp4ceM4rine, without his very good explanation I wouldn't be able to complete this. And I pray for his too early deceased sd-card.

Do you think after you have a working "recovery" sd-card solution it is possible to change the Google framework to a tablet ui like in some Cyanogenmod Mods? For my older tablet I used the "auto patcher" for CM, AOSP and AOKP which easily integrates a framework patch to change the ui back (only one status bar like in ICS). I'm still not satisfied with the new ui which came with Android 4.2., it is not very comfortable with this big screen. Except one has lumberjack hands.


Autopatcher and Windows-GUI at XDA-Developers.

Edit: My own attempts with this auto-patcher were not successful. The patcher runs and recognized a Voyo system.zip as an AOSP, then successful did its patches. But if I flash a patched system.img, the tablet is booting and booting and don't come to any end. I also tried with "adb push" to copy the 4 patched files while system is running, what was successful in the first moment, but the system prints out error-messages (SystemUI closed etc.), and after a reset I'm again in this endless boot-issue. This need some more investigation...

In utscript:

Code:
ext4format mmc 0:3<br />
ext4format mmc 0:4
Can someone tell me what command formats the system and what formats the userdata?

Well, I'm not an Android guru, but I would say:

ext4format mmc 0:3 does the system partition
ext4format mmc 0:4 does the userdata partition

because the script copy their image in this order:
Code:
fatload mmc 1 0x48000000 system.img<br />
fastboot flash system 48000000<br />
<br />
sleep 50<br />
uttext  20 190 "Update userdata...Wait some minutes."<br />
fatload mmc 1 0x48000000 userdata.img<br />
fastboot flash userdata 48000000
Why are you asking?

Because this script from htcmania should be a safe way to update the system-partition only, without brick chances, but I don't want to format my data-partition to keep my apps. So one of the format commands is probably needless.

Code:
source 0x41000000 <br />
 utupdateenv <br />
 utsetbacklight 1 <br />
 uttext 20 30 "********************************************* *" <br />
 uttext 20 40 "* Exynos5 upgrade JB2 V0.1[utscript]" <br />
 uttext 20 50 "********************************************* *" <br />
 uttext 20 60 " " <br />
<br />
 uttext 20 70 "Update system...Wait some minutes." <br />
 movi init 0 <br />
 sleep 50 <br />
<br />
 ext4format mmc 0:3 <br />
 ext4format mmc 0:4 <br />
 sleep 50 <br />
<br />
 fatload mmc 1 0x48000000 system.img <br />
 fastboot flash system 48000000 <br />
 uttext 20 <img src='http://www.slatedroid.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mega_shok.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='80' /> "OK, Update End !" <br />
<br />
 sleep 500 <br />
 uttext 20 90 "Reboot..." <br />
 sleep 2000 <br />
<br />
 utsetbacklight 0 <br />
 shut 1 <br />
 reset
Edit: It seems that both format commands are needless if you only want to update the system.img. Partition 3 and 4 should be data and cache, here are the mountpoints:

/sdcard vfat /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
/system ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p2
/data ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p3
/cache ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p4

Ok, anyone that bricked it try this:

- One 4 Gb. SD, using bootloader_sd.vhd from Inspiration 0.4 with Winimage, select "Restore virtual hard disk image on physical drive ..." and mark yes to write information.
- If after that Windows don´t read SD, go to "administracion de discos", (sorry, I don´t know how is in english) or use with Acronis Disk Director 11 and format the rest of de SD, above 2.8 Gb., in FAT32, and copy all files of Inspiration 0.4 (13 files)
- Insert SD on tablet, and press vol- and power, and punch reset. Continue press vol- and power till words of updated appears on screen (I hope so).
- Wait till updated finished and power on tablet.

It´s only a test, please do it only if your Voyo it´s bricked.

I have been following this forum looking for a solution to my bricked voyo and it finally worked. I followed the instructions in your last post Steve Mars
and my voyo a15 updated to inspiration 0.4 successfully. Thank you very much for all your hard work on finding a solution. Hopefully this works for others
as well.

Hi everybody !

I'm back and HAPPY !
I got my tablet back from Spemall and it worked like a charm then I decided to update to 004 ( "My name is Mars...Steve Mars !)
and YESSSSS ! Really nice, Steve. No more chinese cr.. ! The only "problem" I have is that the first shortcut of the home screen is "out"
of the screen and I can't delete it. I also have some incompatibility issues on the market. Do you think it could be due to the 200 DPI ?
I know that sometimes it can be solved by editing the build prop file but I'm not confident about that.
Anyway, I really like this tablet and you did a very great job ! Thanks a lot !
PS : I made the update with Gestor Voyo A15 and it's very easy.

First of all congratulations for receiving your new device. By the way, is it a new device or they repaired your old device? Mine is near to be delivered to them. It has already reached Hong Kong.
Secondly what is Gestor voyo a15 method?

rgd, welcome back!
Which launcher do you use? In another forum I read several times that the standard launcher has this problem with Inspiration. I can recommend the Nova launcher, runs without problems.
