Hey world

I'm creating this thread so as to help most of you techies with a mediapad 7 better exploit its features

Disclaimer 1
Most tips I provide will require root

If you haven't rooted yet, head over to the link above for a how to.


Disclaimer 2
As always, anything that does ao does not happen to your device, whether as a result of your following this thread or not, is entirely your fault, and neither i nor any other parties but yourself carry any blame.



Now thats done, let's get on with it
(Forgive the lack of pretty formatting, posting from the tab)

Tip Number One: Install xposed framework, terminal emulator and Android tuner/ROM toolbox pro

For those of you who have already done this, you will agree as to how important these apps are for any modding done to an android without flashing a custom ROM or kernel.

For xposed, go here and follow the instructions:
http://www.addictivetips.com/android...tall-it-guide/

You can find the terminal emulator app on the play store, and also the android tuner app.


I'll try to update this thread at least once a week, but with school( igcse this year) and a spotty internet connection, don't hold me to my word too much.

Till next week, hopefully.

Xposed installer is compatible with the device
have been using it for a while now

unfortunately the only way to recover is to update using the stock firmware from the huawei site

clockworkmod recovery I'm working on, using the online recovery builder. will start a new thread for that

and the only recovery this device currently has is not like clockworkmod but more like download mode.
I've checked

Kris the wizz 15 says: "I can't seem to get fastboot configured, or boot the device in bootloader. Fastboot commands therefore do not work.
Any advice on this? I'd appreciate it. "

You can't go to fastboot in the s7-701u beacouse it CPU is a rockchip rk3168. and Rockchip have his own "fastboot" method, by the way huawei is locking this method...

i has been conected via Rkdownload mode usin "Fashtool" "RkTool" and "RkFlashKit"software but nothing really work except to dump partitions on pc disk.

Rkdownload mode do not use "fastboot" command, and beacouse this we can't unlock the bootloader.



More information about this here

PD: To have future custom rom for our device, we really need huawei release s7-701u open source code firmware.
