Thanks for the response. I have only used the regular stock recovery that is preloaded on the device (I think it's called Android System Recovery 3e. To my knowledge, I don't believe there are any working custom recoveries for this device. It seems that doing the factory reset is normally the way to go to fix OS issues on this device. However, when the factory reset process is successful (as far as going through the process is concerned), but it does not fix the issue, it makes me wonder if the factory recovery image is corrupt or something. Any ideas? Also, if the device turns on and I can navigate through the recovery options and even use ADB, do you think the hardware is still good? If so, then it would be a software/firmware problem... right?
I would simply like to get the device working. I don't care whether its a stock recovery or custom recovery, stock rom or custom Rom. I just want to use the device again and not have to throw it in the garbage. Do you have any ideas how I can get it going?
One other thing, I just don't understand why it's so difficult to restore a tablet. A PC is ultra easy to fix by using a self-booting recovery disk or a live linux iso. Perhaps someone can explain to me why it seems to be impossible to find a working rom anywhere for this device.
