Win_Bios_0707 Android_Flash_Bios = BRICK!!! :angry:

Sad to read of the bricking.

 

Can you help others by posting the method and steps used for installing the Android Bios ( after Win 8.1 was installed ), 

and initiating the device ( initial Android ROM install method ) once bios is installed ?

 

Instructions to return to Android have not been located or posted or referenced here.

The included BIOS tutorial has not been translated into English ( Request for how to translate that file have gone unanswered )

Thanks for any help you may provide

If you hold the power button in, for 15 seconds, that should turn power off.

 

These are the " Onda " provided Intel device recovery / flash methods ...

Hopeful this helps.

 

In theory ... once BIOS is installed ( hard drive formatted ), 

a ROM would need to be installed ( Operating System and device drivers ).

 

If Bios was overwritten, May need recovery process performed or ROM installation ?

 

BIOS contains the recovery mode etc. commands and choices made available to the user

If my analogy / theory is wrong, I am certain someone more knowledgeable will post corrections.

After install from android to windows,there is not any recovery,the recovery has been replaced from pc bios and the combination volume down+power does not work anymore!!I tried so many times and only thing to do,is booting on windows.

I think that onda is laughing with us and i dont think they will release a comeback to android for V819i.

I join the club, josejose.

 

V819i, 07/07 bios upgrade = BRICK.

 

Since the BIOS chip of the tablet is a known winbond  eeprom, I've ordered a programmer to directly flash the .bin file to it.

 

Little advice: the brick might not be due to the 07/07 update if you use the android OTA bios update; it will return to android after the system update... DO NOT TURN OFF THE TABLET, wait a good 10/20 minutes before doing so, as I think it flash the BIOS in the background and that takes time, in the chinese description they seem to say the tablet will reboot once done... so wait, and if nothing happens past half an hour just shut down it should be good.

¡Good idea! Please, where have you ordered the eeprom programmer? How much does it cost? (I've got soldering skills).

 

My tablet is a brick. If I hold the power button for lots of seconds: nothing. No response. Nothing on the screen. It's dead.

I've bought the programmer and a test clip (might make dissoldering unnecessary) on ebay, search for:

24 25 series EEPROM Flash BIOS USB Programmer CH341A with Software & driver

 

Or something like this.

 

I'll try to recover my tablet as soon as I get the stuff, any programmer should do the job, just make sure it is compatible with Winbond 25Q64 series (I can't confirm yet since I haven't opened the tablet, but it's this kind of chip inside I know it's winbond but I don't know the exact model).

Little update, I've seen on the V975i bios thread that the chip is  W25Q64DW which is a low power version running at 1.8V so my idea of using a 3.6V programmer isn't going to work...

Guess I'll just let things settle down a little and see if some people have other idea to reflash the bios securely.
