maybe.. but it runs only on windows.. and I haven't any windows in years, I just used it from a friends computer.
I have to setup a virtual machine just for that if I don't find an alternative...

This is the only downside of the app, I use it often, I have bricked my tablet 3 times on purpose to see if Livesuite was able to fix it, and every time the app fixes the tablet.

I am a Linux only user, except for needing windows for this one app, to work on my tablet. XP is cheap I got a copy at flea market for 3 dollars, I just moved One of my Linux OS to another partition and installed XP then rerun Grub so the MBR is correct.

I use this recovery on my Ployer MOMO8, works perfectly,.

Thanks fun_ for all your work on this recovery, much appreciated.

Default Black screen in recovery

Hi all,

I had installed the GB recovery.cpio on a previous Scroll Excel and it went fine. Using menu+power I was able to boot to recovery and all was well. However that Excel suffered from a row of dead pixels and went back.

I recently got a replacement and repeated the install. It all appeared to work however when booting into recovery I get a back screen.

If I use adb devices with a USB lead attached I get:
Code:
List of devices attached 
20080411	recovery
I can "adb shell" and view the running processes including /sbin/recovery.
Code:
# adb shell ps
  PID USER       VSZ STAT COMMAND
    1 root       292 S    /init
   ...
   70 root      4800 S    /sbin/recovery
   71 root      3412 S    /sbin/adbd recovery
   ...
   84 root      1824 S    /sbin/sh -c ps
   85 root      1828 R    ps
Is it an issue with a screen driver or backlight? I have attached the output of dmesg once recovery has booted, gathered via adb. The device works fine in "Normal Boot" mode.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Cheers

Default I don't know what I own...

I haven't a clue what tablet I've bought, but it runs gingerbread 2.3.4, calls itself a 97FC and was bought as a 'NATPC M009s' from Amazon.

Here's the specs:

Display 7.0 inch, Resolution: 800*480. Capacitive Touch Screen, 5 point touch
CPU/Chipset: ALLWINNER A10 1.2GHz
Memory: DDR3 512 MB
Storage: Build-in 4GB (8GB Optional ), TF card extendable 1GB-32GB
PC Interface: mini USB * 1
System: Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread
Flash Support: Yes, Adobe Flash 10.3
Internet Access: Built-in Wifi IEEE 802.11b/g 11Mbps to 54Mbps
3G External
Camera: 1.3 MP camera in the front
Battery: Built-in Lithium Battery: 3600 mAh (working time: 4~5 hours).
Dimensions: 197mm*121mm*11mm
Net Weight: 350g

I've read on Amazon that it is also known as the LYF1, but there is also a lot of confusion over who bought what, as a lot of the tablets seem to be slightly different.

Help would be much appreciated

Liam

By the specs, it seems to be an LY-F1. If you have three capacitive buttons on the right side of the screen, and a status LED in the upper right corner (in landscape view), then it's defo an Aurora Pioneer (LY-F1's manufacturing name).
If you like my work, invite me for a drink or two!

Devices:
  • Alcatel OT-995
  • Nokia Lumia 520

Thanks for the reply! I emailed the seller on amazon and was given this link !!www . asianfonesforum . com/showthread . php?2599-NATPC-M009S-Capacitive-useful-apps-and-Firmware!!

It has all the instruction and firmwares. To all those who have the NATPC M009S, or the 97FC, follow the above without spaces!

BTW I did find this useful patch to allow command line nandroid backups to be taken. (Add back the https)
Code:
github.com/dweinstein/android_bootable_recovery/commit/3fdb0a9b9a08aa8e436e7b0449d0941d8a926465
So I can at least take a backup in recovery now.

sorry, I don't have time for everything and especially for GB rom.
please replace drivers with proper one.

if you are using adb shell to make backup, then you may use tar or something to make backup without patch.

Thanks anyway. I did replace the recovery drivers with those from the system partition and recovery appears to be working successfully.

For the record this is a Scroll Excel build 97F2-D1-H1-H01-1748.20120307 and it appears to have different display and camera modules from previous Excel tabs.

Cheers
