I have exactly the same problem. I managed to flash it with Crystal batch 3 SW. Can acess shell thru adb, but the screen is black too.
I also have boot.img, recovery.img, factory.img, system, but I don't have the bootloader.
Once I flash it with the files mensioned above the tablet doesn't even boot and I have to shunt the TF boot contacts that exist on the board.
It is a DINO 7.17.
AML8726-MX - dual core 1.5GHz
8GB internal ROM
According to build.prop (original) the board is:
ro.product.device=g08ref - can't seem to find any firmware with this reference
the original mtd table:
mtd0: 00400000 00100000 "bootloader"
mtd1: 00800000 00400000 "logo"
mtd2: 00800000 00400000 "aml_logo"
mtd3: 00800000 00400000 "recovery" - have it
mtd4: 00800000 00400000 "boot" - have it
mtd5: 30000000 00400000 "system" - have it
mtd6: 08000000 00400000 "factory" - have it
mtd7: 08000000 00400000 "cache"
mtd8: 90000000 00400000 "userdata"
mtd9: 12d000000 00400000 "NFTL_Part"
Did you fix your tablet?
Could someone help us out here?

tablet. It's Prestigio Multipad Prime Duo, 7" 1024x600 tablet with 16gb internal storage and micro-sd card slot. It has only Power and + - volume buttons.
I've bricked it by flashing official firmware with default recovery. Entered recovery, made wipe, than installed update.zip from sd card. Progress bar started to move, indicating what process is on the way. And than in about 20%(no real percentage was in that recovery) tablet first freezed and than turned off. From this point there was no reaction on buttons, no display(even no backlight) - nothing. Connecting it to PC made the power on light flashing every 1 second(i guess). No device found by PC. I've tried turning on with - and + pressed, with both, without pressing anything - no luck.
So it was deep brick. Later i have found some info about 5th and 6th pins on NAND chip inside tablet, if those pins are connected to each other, after turning on tablet will be discovered by PC as M6 device. That worked! After hours dancing around AML usb flashing tool i was able to boot some uboot on tablet, started some recovery(not on the screen, it's still black as night), connect to recovery with ADB and trying to flash BOOT, BOOTLOADER and RECOVERY.
What i've tried:
1)adb push boot.img, boot loader.img and recovery.img i get from official firmware for this tablet
2)to make sure what my files now exists on tablet. I've pushed them to /cache/ so
and ls told me what my .img files are there
3)tried to flash
#flash_image boot /cache/boot.img
#flash_image bootloader /cache/bootloader.img
#flash_image recovery /cache/recovery.img
And here is a problem - each of those command gave me that:
error scanning partitions exit with code -1
I can't flash bootloaders and recovery. I've googled for days and still dont get it - why that "partition scaning" errors and what should i try.
If anyone can help me with that, or is there some different method of flashing it - i will be highly appreciated. I've used this tablet for less than a week and now it's totally bricked what i can't bring it back to life.
