Tablet [Q] Bricked huawei Mediapad 7 X1

Hello,

This is my first android tablet and i love it, but i have bricked it, i was messing around with it and i think i wiped it all, at this moment the device is stuck at the mediapad logo, fastboot mode is working but i can not get into recovery.

I have downloaded the two official stock roms mentioned in this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/huaw...-b007-t2811863 but when i try to do
Code:
fastboot update update.zip
i get the below error:

Code:
archive does not contain 'android-info.txt'
archive does not contain 'android-product.txt'
error: update package has no android-info.txt or android-product.txt]
The zip file contain the dload folder and the update.app file, no .txt files in mention. Any solution to this ?

I have also tried to flash a cwm/twrp recovery (tried many variants) into the device but i can not boot into them (nothing happens, still stuck at the mediapad screen).
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
At this moment i have only fastboot available, what can i do to unbrick the device ?

Thanks alot

Use the standard ROM flashing method by copying the update.app into dload folder onto an external sdcard and reboot your device. This ought to work. If it doesn't you've truly bricked your device by screwing up the bootloader.

The only other way if you've screwed up the bootloader is to perform a bootloader unlock using the tool on 4PDA.ru. Google Translate is rather spotty though.

Sdcard method is the default update method for Huawei. There is no need to mess with any 3-button combo or hardware.

It is the easiest update method I've seen among the major phone companies.


I will post link to the 4pda tool link later as I am at work now.

I have made a little progress i think, using your post https://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?s...#entry70452069 i have flashed the CWM recovery and i am able to boot into it (Chinese XD) and i am using the menu you translated to navigate around, i have put the stock zip that i downloaded and tried to flash the zip file but i got some erros that i did not understand (see attached screenshot)

I have noticed that when i plug the device now into the pc it shows the battery charging (something did not appear before). Also, the sdcard update method is not working (nothing happens, stays at the mediapad logo)

What should i do now ?

It says cannot open the file.

Just use the normal method of the dload folder.

You have taken a very complex route to solve a simple issue.

I have tried the dload method, i have extracted the contents of the zip file "dloadl/update.app" and put them in a 2GB memory, inserted the momeory inside the device and turned it on but nothing happens, it stays on the logo of "mediapad"

Then it is quite possible your download is corrupted. Try downloading again. And I think the recommendation was to use a 4Gb card.

Ok, will re download and try with a 4GB memory stick, what about the bootloader unlocker that you mentioned ? do we still need that ?
