Hi, I've been silent reader of this thread for about a week, and planning to buy this cute monster.

Just curious, anybody ever try to run Windroy (http slash-slash windroye dot com) on it?
It may provide dual OS temporarily.

Hey guys, is there anyone who will help me? I've bought this, installed Windows, now they crashed, so i had to reinstall them, now nothing works (otg does) I've downloaded some drivers, but they are in .cat format, which i dont know how to install, because i'm mostly mac user.
Can anyone help me? Reinstall it? Is fine to make a bootable usb disk with windows and install it? Is there any modified Windows installator with teclast x98 drivers in it? Thank you!

Install gapps
Hi guys,

i have flashed the newest 4.2.2 on my X98 (HKC3), and it worked fine - until the first reboot. After that, the Play Store went missing from my tablet...

Do you know any way to flash gapps, or simply install Google Play?


Edit:found it, for everyone with a problem like me, just google for "google play apk", and download the latest APK from apkmirror.

Hi guys, I just bought the X98 with windows preinstalled.

It works fine but there's a bug with the network connections. Sometimes, when I click in the right sidebar the network connection, the network connection menu does not open.
I need to restart the tablet to change the connection between Wifi and 3G or simply to change the wifi network.
Do you also have this bug?

I think there's a problem with the 3G module driver...

Remember the log file posted before, type those commands EXACTLY. I forgot to do droidboot.bin but flashed everything else which is why I was recovered.
Download KitKat firmware and extract them
Ensure the tablet is turned on then turn it off
Enter droidboot (press Vol+ and Power, then release power and keep pressing Vol+) when turning on again.
Ensure the device is detected in fastboot on your PC (As BayTrail<serialnum>)

Run the following commands exactly, replacing the path with the path to the folder where the kitkat files are located:

fastboot oem write_osip_header
fastboot oem start_partitioning
fastboot flash /tmp/partition.tbl "[Drive]:\path\to\kitkat\firmware\partition.tbl"
fastboot oem partition /tmp/partition.tbl
fastboot erase data
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase config
fastboot erase logs
fastboot erase factory
fastboot oem stop_partitioning
fastboot flash fastboot "[Drive]:\path\to\kitkat\firmware\droidboot.img"
fastboot flash recovery "[Drive]:\path\to\kitkat\firmware\recovery.img"
fastboot flash system "[Drive]:\path\to\kitkat\firmware\system.img"
fastboot flash splashscreen "[Drive]:\path\to\kitkat\firmware\bootlogo.bin"
fastboot flash boot "[Drive]:\path\to\kitkat\firmware\boot.img"
fastboot continue
Hopefully you can boot in. Following, flash the IAFW as described before for audio fixes.

you saved me too.after the i brick the recovery with that all came like new and better .thank you very much

Please help!!!
Hello my dear geniuses of XDA, First off im a newb when it comes to tablets, phones and such, I do know quite a fair but about PC's hardware and software, but its hardly the same ^^ So heres my problem: I got an Teclast X98 Air 3G tablet for my mum for the holidays, bought it off aliexpress, good price, awesome hardware. But, google play store isn't working, tried all fixes, none helped or wasn't even able to apply them, cannot update software via the built-in manufacturer updater, says: "Unknown error.", Skype doesn't work, says "Cannot connect to your network at the moment, try again later." Even though browser works, and wi-fi is connected, so I used SRSroot, rooted my device and tried to install 2 different ROMS, using Manufacturing Flash Tool, each ROM I tried to install ends up the same: at 10% it fails, in the tablet last seen messages are:
FLASH osloader...
E: unknown volume /osloader to flash!
boot command stubbed on this platform!
could not open /sys/devices/virtual/backlight

And the Flash tool gives me this:
