Hi,

I was just wondering: Have you rooted your device and have you installed twrp for your specific device? (I know, sounds like a dumb question, but you'll be suprised how many people install wrong versions). Because if you have rooted your device properly, and you installed twrp (one for your device), then you should be just fine. But I'm afraid that you haven't, and that therefore the screen is all fuzzy. And also, is the screen fuzzy in the twrp menu, or when you are on (e.g) the homescreen? If the second option doesn't apply, then you are not bricked. Please answer and give as much information as possible on what you did, then I might be able to help you. (btw, it's very unlikely that you are hard-bricked and that your device won't be able to be repaired)

(and a happy new year :P )

Yes i root my device before i installed twrp , when i boot my tablet twrp boots up the screens goes alll blurry / fuzzy with colors then it becomes normal recovery menue i installed twrp touch so i should be able to touch the setting but i can't i press the power button and a fuzze Unlock with ''Slide to unlock'' comes up but i can't slide to unlock it.. Oh yeah and it is upside down so i have to turn my tablet upside ..

I think[I know] i installed the wrong version of twrp which does not work for my device, Is there any way i could get rid of this recovery or factory reset?

What kind of tablet do you have? Does the bootloader support fastboot? If so you should be able to flash the proper recovery. If not does adb work when in recovery? You may be able to change it here. Also your OEM may have a download mode to flash firmware, this may be another option.

I have a Allwinner A31 table to be precise ubonton u705a
I have tried adb but it just says [waiting for device] so I guess ADB does not work.
I don't know anything about bootloaders it had an option of fastbooting in the power menus if that means anything sorry for my lack of description Sent from my R800i using xda app-developers app

I think the easiest would be to just install the right version, the same way you installed this version. You are still able to connect your device to your pc, I guess, so you should be fine. To go back to your stock recovery, find the stock recovery for your device (you can probably find it somewhere here on the forums), and flash it.

Hope this works and good luck
