Hi @Robiom
Thanks very much. I finally rooted my device. The i9 forum was a great help with many good tips. This was my first time rooting any device and am very pleased.

@pylly

The package is only for Google play and I installed rest of Google framework files from this package https://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20130812-signed.zip/ .

I installed Google play from this package and it is working fine :)

Link to Google play given by my store

For new users, I am going to write all the steps that i followed.

Short Summary:
1) Check if your device is being detected by adb. I had a problem at this step in Windows 7 64 bit
2) Root device using Shuame
3) Install Gapps files and Google Play using ES File Explorer
4) Install Markethelper

Reference Threads
http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/93537-ramos-i9-aio-thread/

Follow these instructions for Shuame Root
http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fpadhz.com%2F%3Fp%3D10085&act=url
Untranslated Page: http://www.pbhz.com/ramos-i9-root.html

Download 2 files from here:
http://padhz.net/apk/485
http://pan.baidu.com/s/1hqvaKs8

Enable "USB Debugging" by going to settings -> Developer Options
Also Tick on "Unknown Sources" by going to settings -> Security

1) First Step - To check if your device is being detected by Adb.

Install Shuame Setup. Click on 4th icon/tab at the top. Then select adb tool C:\_
Type "adb devices"
If your device is being detected, then you can proceed to step 2.

I had a problem at this step and i followed this guide initially : http://www.droidiser.com/2012/11/how-to-install-drivers-for-any-android.html
I also installed intel Android drivers: https://software.intel.com/en-us/android/articles/intel-usb-driver-for-android-devices

Solution that worked for me: Strangely, My device was detected in Camera (PTP) mode. I was connecting it in MTP (media device) mode. For most users, i believe it will be detected in MTP mode only.

2) Root with Shuame Tool

Read about Shuame Root Tutorial here
http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fpadhz.com%2F%3Fp%3D10085&act=url

Install ShuameSetup in PC
http://www.shuame.com/client/latest/

Download this zip file. Unzip it and rename it as "root" . Place this folder in the internal memory of Tablet using windows explorer.
http://pan.baidu.com/s/1hqvaKs8

Now Connect the device in the mode in which it was being detected by adb.
Run Shuame on PC. Click on 4th icon/tab at the top. Then select adb tool C:\_

Type the follwing commands:

adb root (enter key to validate)
adb shell (enter)
cd sdcard (enter)
cd root (enter)
sh install.sh
and confirm all (y, enter here once, enter here once, y)

Tablet will restart. You can pull the data line at this point. Root finished. I had chainfire's SuperSU automatically installed

3) Install Gapps and Google Play.

Download Gapps package from here
https://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20130812-signed.zip/

And Google Play given by my store from here:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/pibs78

First install ES File Explorer. I installed it from Amazon app store. Make changes in es file explorer as follows:
In Fast Access on left hand side, Click on "Tools" and then select "Root Explorer". Then agree with root permissions, then click "root explorer" again then click mount R/W then on system put it to RW this will enable you to copy files across and change their permissions.

Now copy the 9 files from Gapps package. Place the files using ES File Explorer at these locations:
/system/app/NetworkLocation.apk
/system/app/GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk
/system/app/GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk (added in)
/system/framework/com.google.android.maps.jar
/system/framework/com.google. media.effects.jar
/system/framework/com.google.widevine.software.drm.jar
/system/etc/permissions/com.google.android.maps. xml
/system/etc/permissions/com.google.media.effects.xml
/system/etc/permissions/com.google.widevine.software.drm.xml

Also, Move the 3 apk files from Play Store Package to /system/app

Change permissions for all the 12 files to rw-r-r- (as per the picture .... thanks to coreo)
To change permissions click and hold on the file, click "more" triple dot bottom right corner then change permissions.

Reboot and You will Google Play working. I didn't need to install GoogleContactsSyncAdapter apk

4) Install Market Helper from here. This will allow you to install all the apps that are incompatible with the device.
http://codekiem.com/2013/02/13/market-helper/

Thanks to Robiom, Coreo, nasosak, Cycnus and many others from i9 forum.

Hi @Feher

it took a bit of finding but I finally got there with the language settings in Windows 8.1.

I'll check tomorrow and post the procedure completely but from memory (always dangerous lol), go to control panel and look in language. Find the correct language and add it. Once added you can remove the other one. From there go to the advanced section and set all of the options to your language and once that is done you can copy settings to the Welcome Screen and New User sections......I think :fool:

As I said, I'll check tomorrow and post it......just off to bed

Hi,

Thanks for quick reply.

I already made the changes that i could. Control Panel -> Clock,Language and Region -> Language (Selected English language here and removed chinese) ->
Advance settings (Override for windows display language, input method etc to English). After this i also applied settings to welcome screen, system accounts and new user accounts.

I am still getting the apps category names in english, but this is only place; Everything else is in english. Can you please check if you are getting the menus in English when you display apps by category ?

THanks!

Hi @Feher

I've just checked and everything is in English. Just a thought but have you enabled language overide and selected English (in advanced section)?

In Android, do you have location services okay and are your contacts synchronising? I had to add the files mentioned in the i9 forum to get mine working.

Hi Rob,

Yes, I i have enabled language override. Actually everything was in English initially when i made the changes. Chinese again came up after a windows update. I will try to reapply all the settings again.

In adroid, location services and contacts are working fine.

I've just used windows 8.1 to view all the partitions on the internal flash and I think I've found the 4GB one for Android apps. Well it wasn't that hard as it's the only 4GB partition lol.

One of the drawbacks on the android side is the limit of 4GB so I was wondering if there are any very brave people out there who want to try to resize the partition via windows??

I'm reluctant to try without more info....it's the most expensive tablet I've owned and I don't want to brick it!

So......any volunteers?

Yes, it is not important. For now, External SD is not allowing to be used as an ext4 partitions for extending datas.

You can install any terminal utility (ie https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm&hl=en ) and simply issuing

cat /proc/partitions

You can save it to any file

cat /proc/partitions >/storage/sd_ext/partitions.txt

Then copy-paste here.

I'm pretty sure your hardware is very similar to mine. Can you go to parameters -> about and give me Model, Version, Kernel version and Build ?

The only thing i don't have is the USB debug. It seems mine is OTG only, and for rooting the beast, it was an huge problem.

More informations on my XDA thread: THBK1-10 thread: extend, root, hack ! - xda-developers

Next, many Android partitions are totally blank. Without adding external SD (which depends of source availability for cooking a modded rom) i estimate we could save at least 3Gbs. Some of my partitions are simply blank, or containing space for vendor apps which are simply nearly empty (3 APKs filling 2% of space...)

Last, a lot of clones were announced as Android compliant (PIPO, U100GT, ...) but very few were shipped with Android. I think this is because Windows 8.1 was free (and it seems it is, in China, prefered at Android), and also because Google & Microsoft are slacking dual systems.

Thanks @Graveen, very helpful

I'm leaning towards using Windows to modify the partitions as it won't affect Windows if I modify the android partitions which means I can still revert by just undoing what I did via Windows.

Yes, it won't affect windows (as long as you keep initial vfat boot partitions and you are only dealing with ext4 parts).

Notice i have a full recovery which transform your tablet in WIndows only - so no more android, but it is aimed as 'full repair'. Sadly i can't confirm it'll work flawlessly for your tablet, but there are chances !

You could certainly reduce cache, reduce logs, reduce system, and increase datas.

Anyhow you must keep number of partition (ie datas should stay 9th partitions): you can't remove one, but you can reduce it to 1Mb.

Hello,

Hope this will be not offtopic, but i'm very interested in this tablet even when I think it has a very high price. It is worthy to buy it over other options of well-know brands like asus, lenovo, etc?

I came from a Voyo a15, has an excellent performance and was very smooth, but the worse software an hardware quality ever. Recently the touch screen stop working, and I need to change the panel. So, if anyone know this tablet can compare it features with i10 pro's? Could I have a similar quality of performance here?.

Is Ramos a trustful brand?, we can count on android's and windows upgrades?.

Hope you can help me with this doubts... thanks!

Hello good people ;-)
I just got this device from china (aliexpress seller). So far, so good. It actually runs. I will be tinkering the next few weeks and looking for advice in English. This forum seems the place to be. I also got a telcast x98 tablet a few weeks ago. It has taught me many things about win8.1 and tablets in general. I think this will help people here and also apply to the Ramos tablet. The hardware is very similar.

A couple answers to poster questions :
I would buy this device again.
It is very unique and dual boot tablets are no longer allowed. So buy it while you still can.
Just be aware: Build quality is definitely not apple'ish. The tablet is very plasticy. The hardware inside is quite good but the external shell is very flimsy. Holding it in your hands, you could easily snap it in half. But honestly..We are buying the insides not really the outside :) and compared to my other cheap Chinese tablets the outside is the same quality. Also a general tip: a lot of patience and reading/translating will be required. These companies are not ready to really deal with English support of any kind, so these forums are a lifesaver.

Be well
More Q and A later..once I get my feet wet.

Thanks for your answer.. I not that worry about the plastic build, is the quality of the components that make nervous because of my previous experience.

Let me ask some more question about it to make my mind. This tablet support stylus?. can compare in any point with the Asus transformer book t100?... wich is actually cheaper. Shallow questions: you had it in white or yellow?, wich one do you think look better?

Sorry to bother you with this, but is a considerable amount of money to invest in a chinese tablet

If you plan to use Windows only, go for T100. The CPU is Z3740 while Z3740D here (so tiny less powerful), but the dock can embed a 500Gb HD and have plain USB ports.

Only benefit here is dual system. Asus T100 hardly run Android (while our is running it buggy, but at least at its plain speed).

THBK1-10.32 is 289€ while T100 32 is 329€ on my side. Not sure where you can find T100 cheaper: if it is and you don't care of Android, go for it.

I don't understand why Ramos i10Pro is so expensive, tbh.

I must add, THBK-10 is officially supported in EU, so this is no longer a 'chinese' tablet, so the warranty runs at full speed :)
