Ok, just bricked my Nextbook 7

Here is how I flashed a firmware without access to recovery:

If you are in a bootloop, Connect USB and Power.

Press and hold pin on back until you hear windows try to detect a device but the screen is off.

Download this: http://arctablet.com/assets/tools/Fi..._Tool_v1.4.zip

Install the driver from the drivers folder.

3. Installing the drivers on the computer

Following the tablet entering in recovery mode, the computer should now show it has found a new USB device and prompt for a device driver. Select the appropriate driver in the driver directory from the Rockchip Flash Tool 1.4 package.

It will then install the driver for RK29 Device

4. Sending the firmware to the tablet

The flashing tool should display a green square around the number 1 in the lower left area of the Windows application.
Select the firmware file to flash using the button in the top right area of the application. Select the update.img file from here:

http://www.multiupload.com/NQHSNZJSO2

Then push the Upgrade button to transfer the selected firmware to the tablet.
The firmware will be copied to the tablet, a progression counter will go from 0% to 100% on this step, followed by a verification.


You are done, let the tablet reboot and update itself. It should take a few minutes for the flash process to finish.

This procedure has been successfully tested on Windows XP 32 bits for flashing a bricked NextBook 7 Premium YF1011 (but should work on others)

And how exactly are you supposed to install the drivers from the driver folder? Because those are not Runable files, theyre drivers, with no install command. So, my daughters nextbook is bricked, wont install drivers(says not successfully installed after i plug it in) and there is no way to install the drivers from the batch file. Anything you left out??? Id like to unbrick this thing. Thanks..

I found out how to install the drivers on windows 7!

Follow this:

click the start button > type in the search box right above the start button "device manager"

(make sure the tablet is plugged in and in USB MODE)

right click the tablet or unknown device

select install/update driver manually

browse for the driver in the download folder then it should be updated

worked for me.
