No. Rockchip & Vimicro are 2 different chips. Also, you should use firmware released by your tablet maker and not from any other Vimicro tablets. If you use firmware from other Vimicro tablet it may not have the drivers for sensors, WiFi or audio. So, may not work properly.Hey all. Never touched android before today, but I just got a Wopad V7 and I was wondering if it was possible to use this firmware for it.
The Wopad tools Roman has work on SDK 1.x firmwares. Not sure about SDK 2.x ones.I just got a ptab7200 it has the 1 GHz Rockchip RK2918/ARM just wondering if i can root it with this tool. Not a noob but not a super dev either. anyt info you have would be great thanks!
Thank you for that information the problem we are having is for some reason the unpacked .img files (after using AFPTool) all can not be opened in linux or windows. We have been successful in unpacking the update.img and pushing the system.img back to the tablet and mounting it. So we know the image is good but windows and ubuntu machines can not mount it. we are thinking its a different type of cramfs or some specialized format.The Wopad tools Roman has work on SDK 1.x firmwares. Not sure about SDK 2.x ones.
You also need firmware image from your specific tablet to modify. Only download Wopad i7 firmware if that is the tablet you have.
Tool allows you to unpack system.img. Then it copies over SuperUser APK to get you root access. Then it repacks system.img. Afterwords, you flash the modified firmware to the tablet.
Ok. Better help in Teclast forums. Wendal can be found there. You can also try asking Aino & Aiah.What we would like to do is move from cramfs to ext3 but that means we need to open the boot.img which we also can not do. Any help opening these unpacked images would be awesome. We believe this is what is currently holding us back from moving to an ext3 mounted system and ultimately rooting the tablet.
I agree with you. I have seen handful of others have the same issue. I believe it happens on tablets using "older" firmware. Very likely they used an older and/or custom version of cramfs.we are thinking its a different type of cramfs or some specialized format.
I am not sure about Honeycomb or ICS yet. At the moment, most of us using WoPad i7 are having issues getting the /system to be fully writable and rooted without using Roman's method. As for the new SDK, WoPadUSA is supposed to be releasing it shortly but no news from them yet.Thanks for the information on the RK29 tools!
I have an additional question:
We try to 'upgrade' the RK29 based Odys Loox that has a resistive touch. Flashing / Erasing or modifying existing images are no magic. But using the released kernel from Odys to create a working one ist awefull.
Some posts above a new RK29 SDK is mentioned. But anytime I download such an SDK it only contains some already prepared images and the flash drivers. What I search for is the kernel, libc and RK29 drivers, sources...
Something to generate a kernel from and get Android 3/4 working on top.
Did I miss soemthing with the new SDK? Wrong link on that page? No idea. But as RockChip announced a tablet running ICS4 on the RK2918 CPU, there must be sources somwhere
Best regards and thanks in advance for any help
Indeed, I got a feeling that WoPad has no plans to roll out a SDK 2.0 for our i7. What about the SDK 2.0 for the Telcast RK2918 tablets? I saw some discussions about a SDK 2.0 in their section, not sure if they got a SDK 2.0 lying around for Roman to fix something up for us.I have used SDK 2.0 on other RK2918 devices. SDK 2.0 dumps the annoying CRAMFS file system and allows the device to be messed with quite a bit more easily. I have been looking around the net for the last hour or two trying to find SDK 2.0 firmware for download for ANY 7" RK2918 800x480 device. I am not having much luck. If I can at least get firmware from another device I might be able to roll the necessary drivers into from the current Wopad i7 firmware and at least get us hacked SDK 2.0 for our i7. I seriously doubt WoPad is going to come out with an official release
What Roman needs is the firmware from another 7", rk2918, 800x480, capacitive screen tablet that was upgraded to sdk2 or sdk2.1. Having same chip (rk2918), resolution and capacitive screen is very important.What about the SDK 2.0 for the Telcast RK2918 tablets?
