Hi,

yesterday I dropped my tablet :( from a low height. Nothing broke, no scratches but the screen touch digitizer stopped working. I think that would be the the plug got unplugged.

I think I will open it up.

Beware, I do not imply that anyone with the same problem should try disassemble their tablets. I am a computer programmer, and have worked as a technician for some years.

QUESTION:

Has anyone opened Ramos i9? Does a normal hairdryer do the job with the glue on the back side? Will I need more glue after I open the back case to put it back?

Just a quick update,
I used a hairdryer to heat and melt the glue from the double sided strip tape that keeps the back side glued to the tablet. With patience using a small cupping and a plastic spunge, after 15 minutes I took the back side apart.
After that I found the touch screen digitizer cable unplugged. Just plugged it back, secured the plug, and put some more double sided 3M strip tape on the back side of the tablet. Then closed the back side again.

I have s Ramos i9s but am having trouble getting Google Services to run. It will install just fine but then I keep getting messages telling me that Google Services has stopped working. Will you FixRamosUpdate work on the Ramos i9s or is it just for the i9?

Hi,

The FixRamosUpdate script is copying missing apks from gapps-jb-20130812-signed which is the latest 4.2.2 (JB) Google Apps to the system and then fixes permissions. I suppose if Ramos i9s is based on same Android, that is 4.2.2, you may run the script after you have rooted your tablet. But you should first check carefully to have the original firmware in hand in case something happens to re-apply.

BTW I see that Ramos i9s is a dual boot based on Windows 8.1 and Android 4.4. That means that my fix is not suitable for you. Sorry.

Actually the Ramos i9s is available as a dual boot but mine is strictly Android, running KitKat 4.4.2. It is the Ramos i9s Android Game (Intel processor). I am have successfully rooted the tablet but can't seem to get google services to run

So the FixRamosUpdate does not fit since your tablet is Android 4.4. Did you try the latest firmware from Ramos for your tablet?

Hi all,

I haven't seen any reports about this in English, but I've found 2 sources which state that the i9 can be updated to Kitkat 4.4.2.

This involves flashing the firmware to Digiflip XT901 (Indian rebranding of i9) among other things, though there is also a link to a Russian site which seems to have made a native firmware for the i9. Maybe there are some Spanish and/or Russian speakers who can help, but here are google translate links to both threads:

Souce 1 (originally in Spanish): https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.htcmania.com%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D1023879&edit-text=

Source 2 (originally in Russian): http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ru&u=http://4pda.ru/forum/lofiversion/index.php%3Ft499488-2060.html&prev=search

I'm a bit nervous to try this myself in fear that I may miss something in the translation, but hoping to see someone else on the forum test it out!

Has anyone used any BT mouse with Ramos i9 (23085). I am using a Broad com BT 3.0 Keyboard for more than a year now successful. Today I bought an Omega BT Mouse, it gets paired, but after 1-2 minutes it keeps getting disconnected.

Just to update the thread,
The BT mouse works fine, though I've changed that to a Samsung BT mouse. The problems is having connected the BT keyboard and mouse , and WiFi. Then according tohttps://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?can=2&start=0&num=100&q=&colspec=ID%20Type%20Status%20Owner%20Summary%20Stars&groupby=&sort=&id=53291Android 4.2.2 has a problem with mouse lags and keystroke repetitions.

Bit of a Necro post I know but for anyone still looking for a copy of the 23085 firmware. I found one here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzDYcfsVvS9JNkJwUEFad3FHT3c/edit?usp=sharing through this forum post http://www.htcmania.com/showthread.php?p=15533760

I'm trying to dig round to see what I can do with the tablet, ideally I'm thinking something along the lines of RemixOS as that would at least bring back some much needed features like App2SD and such as well as security updates but need to get TWRP on there first.

Hi,

Glad to see someone is still using the tablet.

I am still using the tablet Ramos i9 as my main bedtime reading-youtube tablet. The last firmware I upgraded was Android KitKat from an Indian clone, don't recall the name now I have to check the tablet at home. Had to change the recovery as well. I still haven't found TWRP for i9 as well.

Overall the Intel CPU and the tablet was a good choice back at the time I bought it.

I am guessing this is the Digiflip XT901 firmware I mentioned a few posts above. Was this easy to do for you? I still hadn't tried it myself because I couldn't find a guide written in English where I was sure I wasn't missing any important information.

You are tight it is Digiflip XT901 firmware. I recall had to format the tablet, put the new recovery and the pushed the new system with adb to the tablet. Overall a 1-hour process. To tell the truth I did than in order to move to a newer Android version at that time. Haven't messed with the system from that point on as I haven't found any newer firmware. I use xposed for everything else I need, even though I rather use the tablet for debtime reading and youtube.

Thanks, I think I'll give it a shot when I have some time. It will soon be replacing an old GB tablet in my kitchen but I want to get KK running so I have better app compatibility.
