Thumbs up [Solved] Vodafone SmartTab 4 - Update problems after ROOT

The SOLUTION for this Problem can be find on a german forum: android-hilfe.de
The Link to the solution is: android-hilfe.de/lenovo-allgemein/602909-vodafone-smarttab-4-update-problem-durch-root-4.html#post8038841

If wanted I can try to translate the solution... but my english is not so good. But if it is wanted i will do my best.

Hello community,

I and a few other german people have problems after Rooting the Vodafone SmartTab 4.

At first I would explain what i have done.
1.) Rooting the device with Framaroot -> all working good
2.) Want to flash the official 4.4.2 Update -> Warning that my device is rooted, but it is still downloaded
3.) Installing the Update -> getting this Error at automatic and manuel: Look at the Attachment please
4.) Unroot the Tablet with Framaroot -> didnīt function... Updater says the Tab is rootet... same if I trying it with the Unrootoption in SuperSU

I have the Original Recoverie on the Device and only the rooted Vodafone (yes i rooted it again... the unroot function correct, tested it with the Root Checker App).
Does anyone know a Custom Recoverie and a CustomROM for this Device? Or have anyone a Idea how i can put the 4.4.2 Update on this Device?

Thanks for all your help!

Sincerly Althalus

PS: If someone need the Update.zip from Vodafone... (<500MB) i can Post the Link in a PN.
PS2: From a other German i get the information that this Device should be a "Alcatel OneTouch Pop 8", Model: P323X, if this helps.

Well, I would say sometimes some problems start to appear after rooting your device because of apps, look what previously going on over your device is its imposed by the limits of vendors and now all those apps are free to use in any manner the apps like. So, I would consider it as a demerit of rooting the device.

Okay... then it is as i thought.
Maybe i could get the original ROM. If this works... it would be great. Damn branded Devices... I would never buy such of them in the future.

Thanks for your reply promo87.

Well, yes you can get the original ROM try heading over to the sammobile/firmware section and putting your device appropriate information you can get the stock ROM available for your device. Then you can take the help of ODIN to flash that stock ROM over to your device.
