Default Nabi 2 UK won't boot after update.

Hi, I did the update here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6&postcount=85

And removed twrp. Obviously with my lack of knowledge I
made a mistake. Now I have stock recovery and the nabi freezes on the boot logo.

Any chance someone could help with getting it booting again or getting twrp back on.

If Jellybean is installed, then I think this is what you need to install TWRP for JB onto the Nabi:

Once TWRP is on, your options for recovery are much wider.

Did you do everything else in thread or just that post? i.e. Did you update the bootloader too? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2&postcount=91

You will need TWRP one way or another. Use the ICS version if you didn't update the bootloader, and JB if you did.

Thanks for the help guys. I didn't realises until after that I needed to update the bootloader too, I'm guessing that's where my troubles start.

Just going to have a look at your links now, I know I could get twrp back on when it doest boot.

Thanks again.

Tried nabilab for ics and jb and both are no longer detecting my nabi.

When the nabi tries to boot the circle around the logo isnt even moving.

Still stuck with the Nabi, if anyone could help I'd really appreciate it. All I can do with it at the moment is boot to stock recovery.

So you installed the 2.2 ROM, but didn't update the bootloader. You have the stock recovery on it right now.

Can you get TWRP back on it?

Can you get into fastboot mode by pressing power and vol down?

Yes put 2.2 on it but didn't update the boot loader. Tried to get twrp back on using nabilab buts the tablets no longer being detected .

Yes, I only have stock recovery. When I select fastboot protocol, I then get bootloader, continue, reboot-bootloader, reboot and power off.

OK now you need to put TWRP back on it with fastboot when it's in that state.


Look in the TWRP thread, I'm mobile right now, but basically you need to open a command prompt where fastboot is located and then

Thanks so much for getting me out of this mess. Twrp is back on so I should be ok now with a bit of trial and error.
