I have a Huawei S10-201u MediaPad 10 Link (S10-201u) and it is giving me grey hairs.
It had, what I assume to be, a custom ROM installed on it and we had no real access to the things settings. I decided to wipe and install the stock ROM.
PC OS: W7 SP1 x64
I went to Huawei website and downloaded the S10-201u Firmware (S10-201u, Android 4.1, C232B002, English)
Took forever but I eventually got an 2GB SD card, formatted it clean in FAT32, created a dload folder and dumped the two files (update.app and unlmt.cfg) into the folder and then switched off the tablet.
Inserted SD card, held down VOL-DOWN and pressed the power button until the logo appeared. Kept the VOL-DOWN button pressed until I saw the little green Android robot with the wireframe thing spinning in his chest.
It did its thing for about 5 minutes, bar moved some then filled a little more... and then it simply said "FAIL" in red and in yellow text it says "sdcard upgrade failed. reboot device"
And now it is stuck. I can't boot it normally (just keeps going back to the little green Android and saying failed), I can't turn it off (Can reboot it, just not switch it off) and I have tried 5 or 6 different ROMs on the SD to try get something to happen. No luck,
I am able to reboot the phone to a point where it says "Enter into fastboot mode" if I use VOL-UP and POWER.
Windows detects it in this format as an "Android Phone/Android Single ADB Interface" device however running "fastboot devices" or "adb devices" yields no devices in the list.
Any ideas and suggestions on where to go next?
