Good thread Paul nice to have a place to discuss this tablet i have just posted in the other thread you refereed to but will also post it here below


Quote:

I bought a 10.1 Allwinner A31s 16GB from Ebay for 60 the device details show as a YONESTOPTECH BS1078

It is a nice tablet for the price and came pre rooted witch was great.
One of the first things i did was make a backup off the Rom with online nandroid backup as i like messing and wanted a backup just in case i messed up. and here is where things got messy, online nandroid backup would only be able to restore if i had a custom recovery (CWM or TWRP)

So off i went and tried to install TWRP from the guide on this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2210676

Long story short it didn't work an i thought i had bricked it as it was stuck on the boot logo, i managed to find FW for a Q102 A31S Tablet Stock Firmware 4.4.2 wich is the same tablet under a different name, after several failed attempts to recover through phoenix suite as i couldn't get it into recovery, i downloaded phoenixcard and successfully flashed the FW Phew all was good lol.

So if anyone has successfully installed a custom recovery any info would be grateful as it would be nice to try a custom Rom.

I have also had a little play with dragonface for allwinner devices as this lets you change a few things on the stock ROM ISO and then you can re flash with your custom changes, Two things i would like to tweak are volume and lcd settings as i feel the volume on this device is to quiet and the lcd contrast could do with tweaking. in dragon face you can load the sys.cofig settings, i have found the volume config but haven't got a clue what can be changed to increase the max volume level so if anybody has any knowledge then any input would be appreciated, here is the code for audio settings,

Code:
;pa_single_vol,pa_double_vol: 31 level,1.5db/step.0x1f is the large volume.
;cap_vol:use for system record,0x0--0db,0x1--24db,0x2--27db,0x3--30db,0x4--33db,0x5--36db,0x6--39db,0x7--42db
;headphone_vol,earpiece_vol: must least than 0x3b. 0x1 is a step.
;headset_mic_vol: headset mic(mic2) vol,use for phone headset mic call
;main_mic_vol: main mic(mic1) vol,use for phone main mic call
;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[audio_para]
audio_used         = 1
audio_hp_ldo       = "none"
headphone_vol      = 0x3b
earpiece_vol       = 0x3b
cap_vol            = 0x7
pa_single_vol      = 0x1b
pa_double_used     = 1
pa_double_vol      = 0x1f
headphone_direct_used	= 0
headphone_mute_used	= 0
audio_pa_ctrl       	= port:PA18<1><default><default><0>
audio_mute_ctrl       	= port:PA17<1><default><default><0>
headset_mic_vol    = 6
main_mic_vol       = 6
Thanks in advance for any input

ezcast application install error
Hi,

I get an error message when I try to install the ezcast app on the tablet, do you have any
idea why this would happen? I would really like to cast from this device to my tv.

Also when I try to install the fulltilt poker app from fulltilt.com, the site doesn't recognize my
device as an android device. I got over it by copying the .apk file from another device but
I just thought to mention it.

Thanks,
Zohar

Hmm. I've been able to install ezcast on mine, and maybe the poker game was initially meant for windows. Your tab most likely came pre rooted so check your root permission. For ez cast contact the apps developer he is very good at replying just give all stats from about phone . good luck
