Root for TizzBird F10, F11, F13, F20, F30, N1G
Arabic font support for TizzBird F30


Will it work on my device?
  • F10 root: confirmed
  • F11 root: confirmed
  • F13 root: confirmed
  • F20 root: confirmed
  • F30 root: confirmed
  • F30 Arabic font support: confirmed, requires firmware version 2.20
  • N1G root: confirmed


How to install

Method 1: Flashing from the recovery
This method is known to work for all devices, but it is a bit more elaborate as it requires you to perform most of the steps manually. Firmware version 2.0.6 (3.0.4 for the N1G) or newer is required to access the recovery.
  • Download the appropriate file (downloads can be found at the bottom of this post).
  • Prepare a USB stick by formatting it with the FAT32 filesystem and placing the downloaded file on it.
  • Rename the file on the USB stick to 'update.zip'.
  • Power off the device completely. By default the 'power off' command will put the device in stand-by. Make sure it is completely off, otherwise you won't be able to access recovery mode.
  • Using the included remote, turn the device on. Immediately start pressing the red 'DEV' button. Keep hitting that button until the recovery pops up.
  • Now insert your prepared USB stick.
  • Using your remote, select 'apply usb:update.zip'.
  • If the device has trouble detecting your stick, remove the stick, select 'apply usb:update.zip' again, wait for it to fail, then re-insert your stick and select 'apply usb:update' once more.
  • Select 'update.zip' and wait for it to complete.
  • When flashing is done (should only take 10 seconds or so), remove the stick and select 'reboot system now'.
  • You're all done, enjoy!

Method 2: Flashing from TizzBird's built-in File Browser
This method has only been tested on the F30 so far, but it should work for all devices and is more user-friendly than method 1. Use this method if you are unable or unwilling to enter the recovery, due to using an older firmware or perhaps having lost your remote control.
  • Download the appropriate file (downloads can be found at the bottom of this post).
  • Prepare a USB stick by formatting it with the FAT32 filesystem and placing the downloaded file on it.
  • Rename the file on the USB stick as follows:
    • F10: TizzBird_F10_update_root.zip
    • F11: TizzBird_F11_update_root.zip
    • F13: TizzBird_F13_update_root.zip
    • F20: TizzBird_F20_update_root.zip
    • F30: TizzBird_F3x_update_root.zip
    • N1G: TizzBird_N1G_update_root.zip
  • Now insert your prepared USB stick and turn on the device if it isn't already on.
  • Open the built-in File Browser app.
  • Navigate to the USB stick (you may need to select the stick by clicking the drive icon in the upper-right corner).
  • The 'TizzBird_xxx_update_root.zip' file should have a special icon (looks like a chip) - this means the TizzBird sees the file as a system update.
  • Click on the file to open it. A prompt will appear asking for confirmation, choose 'Install now'.
  • The TizzBird will now automatically reboot, flash the zip and reboot again.
  • You're all done, enjoy!

Thumbs up Nice job !
Congratulations for your dev !
I'm sure it will be helpful to all the F30 TizzBird's users, including the french community.
You are welcome if you wish to discuss about it in our forum. I'm new to XDA forums and cannot give a direct link but you can easily find it by searching "bidouilles numeriques" in Google.
Sorry, it's in french but we can also discuss in english !
Hope to meet you there.

THANKS, rooting works perfect!

Next step is to find a good Samba server to make the F30 a 'real' NAS.

ONE problem: If I try to flash new firmware (e.g. V2_20) I'm getting an error:
Signature Verification Failed! Installtion Aborted

The same for V2_14, any ideas how to solve this?

Thanks!
