I managed to solve my problem

Basically, I downloaded a new version of the 4.3 stock image (from post "[TOOL KIT] myKIT_BATCHV1.1.x") and replaces the files used by the crowncar12 .bat file, including the partition.tbl file. And another thing I did was change the name of system.img, leaving system.img.gz, as explained in the same post "[TOOL KIT] myKIT_BATCHV1.1.x" (sorry, as new user I can't post urls...)!

So, now my Venue 8 is with 4.3 and no glitches, for now!

Thanks!

HOW TO INSTALL:

1. Turn off your Dell Venue 8

2. Go into fastboot mode by holding down power and volume down

3. On your computer run p801t_JB4.3_flash_device.bat

4. Wait

5. When the command finishes hit any key and your Dell Venue 8 should reboot in to android 4.3

You could also use this for restoring your tablet if its stuck on the dell logo (as long as you can get into fastboot mode)

P.S. you cant upgrade to kitkat after

WARNING FOR DELL VENUE 8 ONLY!!!!!!!!!

If you have a picture like this (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8g...it?usp=sharing) this can fix this. I had the same problem before and this is the only thing that fixed my tablet

can't upgrade to kitkat any more? means we can't get the OTA upgrading any longer?

I looked at the contents of these files and am wondering if anyone has tried the same method for venue 7.. My tablet reboots sometimes when I exit apps, usually when trying to open clash of clans after switching out of it but not always. Today it did it coming back out of YouTube to go into Facebook...

I am sure you can downgrade 7 in a similar manner.

download the files for your device from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...40&postcount=2

then manually boot into fastboot by holding vol down and power and then manually flash with :

fastboot flash system filename-system.img.gz
fastboot flash boot filename-boot.img
fastboot flash fastboot filename-fastboot.img

If the _FLASHPKG has these
fastboot flash dnx filename-dnx.bin
fastboot flash ifwi filename-ifwi.bin

filename- being the name of the file in _FLASHPKG
Current Devices:
Tablet : Dell Venue 7 3730 Android : KK4.4.2 SW : Venue 7 3730_KK4.4V1.26_140430-NoModem rooted

Phone : Motorola Razr M Android : KK4.4.2 SW : 183.46.10.XT907.Verizon.en.US rooted using : towelroot by geohot
