[Q] AGPtEK TP704R Problems
Ok, here goes. I ordered a 7" tablet fromareseller on NewEgg. It's an AGPtEK TP704R. Out of the box, it didn't have Google Play Store. I tried installing it as an APK, and all it did was crash. Lo and behold, their support site had an update ready to solve the problem! I downloaded the appropriate firmware for my chipset (Rockchip 3066), fired up their updating software and...fail. Fail. FailFailFail. Yes, I tried five times, each time going over each step painstakingly so as not to miss a footnote. On the fifth attempt, the PC I had connected the tablet to bluescreened. Now all I get is the AGPtEK splash screen and NOTHING else. It isn't even recognized by Windows. I'm no stranger to modding, rooting, and flashing. I started out with my Incredible (running CM7 by the time I upgraded), and then continuing the trend with my Galaxy S3. I've had soft bricks before, nothing I couldn't boot into recovery to get myself out of...but the only button this thing has is a power button. Well, I guess it has a reset switch that seems to just shut it immediately off. Any suggestions?
TL;DR: New tablet bricked after manufacturer recommended firmware flash.
