[Q] Lenovo A2107A-H Help with restoring to OE ROM
I am reaching out one last time to see if I can get my tablet back to the way it was, before I messed it up doing the CWM install. I am going to put as much information on what I have done and be as clear as I can.
I am trying to avoid sending it in to Lenovo and try for a warranty, or paying $50 deductable to AT&T for my Full Protection Plan I am paying for each month on this FREE tablet I got from a promotion.
My device Info:
Lenovo IdeaTab A2107A-H on AT&T purchased at AT&T, Rooted with CWM Touch, European Stock Rom.
First thing I did was root using this thread
, method 1 with 4.03root. This worked fine. I tried several times to Backup and install CWM with this method using MobileUncle. I even tried the “updates” that were posted there. Now, there is only one use to be three or four.
Second, I followed this on another site
through a Google search to make a scatter-text and a back-up on my PC. This part of my problem now as I did not realize the back-up did not do a complete back-up of the tablet as I thought. It skipped some important files, “ANDROID” and “NVRAM” .
Third, I posted on the thread in the first link for help because I could not get CWM on no matter what I tried, and ursulavasey was nice enough to email me some programs and instructions. Using pemergency’s thread here
. Which formats the tablet to install CWM
My major problem is, with the custom ROMs I have tried, FoxTrot, Tesmart, and the European Stock from here
. It will not connect to the AT&T Network correctly. I can reset the IMEI number and connect but, it will drop out a lot and will not run on 3G. Except the Euro Stock, it says 3G in the notification area, it just seems slower than the OE Rom. I also downloaded a Stock Rom that was in two zip files and not sure how to get them into one file to flash, can’t find the link for that one though.
Just for fun I re-followed the GSM Hosting scatter-text thing again with my wife’s tablet and got a better back-up. Everything worked great, However when I flashed it to mine it will not let me reset the IMEI number with DroidTools.
So basically… Is there a way to fix this and put the OE Stock AT&T Rom back on somehow? or Can I re-write something in the back-up from my wife’s to get it to take my IMEI?
Sorry this is long, I wanted to get as much info in the OP as I could. Thank You for your time, ANY help would be appreciated. I hope I put this in the correct section, If not I apologize.
