THIS IS A GUIDE FOR ALL THOSE WHO ARE STRUGGLING TO ROOT AND INSTALL CWM ON THEIR LAVA E-TAB XTRON TABLET'S

Since there was no mention of any successful guys who had done that as this gorgeous and wonderful TAB is relatively a new kid on the block, I had to undertake some risks and had to suffer a hard brick on way, by choosing a wrong parameter file while flashing using rkbatch tools. Luckily my Tab is under guarantee and so the service centre unknowingly gave me a reprieve by re-flashing the stock ROM (I must be the first one to do so). Its been only 5 days since I got it for my son, and I was determined to root and install CWM on it. There has been no support from anyone and surprisingly LAVA does not provide stock firmware (update.img) files for any of their Tab's. Finally my fried Randy from freaktab.com has cooked ROM's for both the XTRON and XTRON+

The LAVA E-Tab XTRON/XTRON+ is basically an RK 3066 chip based Tab which is almost or fully identical to the Z70

CUSTOM ROM'S FOR X-TRON & XTRON+

1) XTRON (4.1.1) (ROOTED WITH CWM) : http://www.freak-tab.de/rrileypm/Lav...leyROM_1.0.zip

2) XTRON+ (4.2.2) (ROOTED): http://www.freak-tab.de/rrileypm/Lav...leyROM_1.0.zip

Special thanks for my friend Randy (http://www.freaktab.com/member.php?1274-rrileypm ) from freaktab.com who has taken special efforts to make ROM's for both the XTRON's in spite of the fact that there are no official ROM downloads for both from LAVA.

I bought this Tab recently. But I cant find drivers for this tab.

I tried connecting the Tab to my laptop with USB debugging on, but the windows doesnt install the drivers automatically.

It searches but fails to identify f the drivers for the device.

Can somebody you help me out with the drivers please...

Here are all the drivers you need... Anyone please come up with a STOCK update.img or ROM....? Then I can make custom ROMs for our TAB.

Thanks for your response.

The drivers you have provided didnt work for me.

Windows is not recognizing the drivers from the folder you have provided.

Can you please point me out any other way to do this?

Angry X-Tron + custom ROM available!
I flashed an X-tron + custom 4.2.2 ROM on my X-tron and it boots and is blazingly fast! The only issues are the following.

http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.p...highlight=Lava

1) Wifi cannot be turned on
2) No Sound
3) Battery indicator not correct

If someone can give a helping hand with suggestions we could have fully working 4.2.2 on X-tron. LAVA guys are terrible and they will never provide us with official 4.2.2 for the X-tron. Guys, 4.2.2 is lighting fast...Any help??
