[Q] 5158N replaced with 5158N.. no joy
I decided to learn tablets..so I took on a TF300T repair for a friend to start learning.Looks like this TF300T was the wrong choice.
TF300T Original digi was shattered and was barley working. possible ghost touches
Original Digi 5158N FPC-1 06WW 2010 on the sticker JA-DA5158N-IBB 18140-10120500
I did check a few post before I bought a digitizer saw the issues with mixing different versions. So I went with an ebay digi from china with the 5158 model. I received the new on visual inspection it looks exactly the same. New Digi revived no white label but printed in small black ink on the new digi says 5158 12.28 D4\ 11205019701012D. At the bottom in white ink it says 5158N FPC-1 06WW 1225. seems like a match
I replaced the cracked screen went pretty smoothly. I put double sided tape on the digitizer plastic frame after cleaning the old junk off. I did not remove the top cover from the new tape,I just put the unit back together without screw so I could make sure it worked the plan was to test, re tear down then glue/tape the new digitizer down after I tested. Well I get no touch after the 5158N to 5158N swap.
unit loaded the first time and updated the camera firmware but not the touch
I did check the fuse on the main PCB around the LCD/touch connectors and found no burning.
the first time I powered the unit up with the new digi the screen jitterd a bit but no touch. after resetting the cables still no touch. the jitters stopped.. So at this point I ordered a USB adapter to connect a mouse.
This morning I received the mouse connector. went into settings it said. Touchpanel version ELAN-3011-4822 Kernal version 3.1.10-g215ac8bf
Also had a message about DMClient has stopped on first boot. went away after a few reboots.
Today I tried a cold boot after reading some post. It booted up showing the three icons RK/ANDRIOD/WIPE.. up at the top I got the following line:
andriod cardhu-user bootloader <1.00 e> released by "U5_epad-10.6.1.27.5-20130902" A03
key driver not found...booting 05
starting Fastboot USB download protocol
at this point in the cold boot booting the mouse and keyboard seem to be unresponsive. If I hit vol up I get booting kernal recovery image then i get an android logo and big error message sits there and then boots up normal.Still no touch.
After 1st cold boot I went back to check the touchpanel version and now it says ELAN-0000-0000 the Kernal version is a tad different now its 3.1.100-G215ae8bf
Is this normal and Ive missed something? Could it not be working because I ave not glued the new 5158 to the plastic frame?
Do i need to root the device then flash the touch firmware? Seems to me that it should have just accepted the new 5158 and worked that's why i spent the extra cash to avoid this kind of issue.
Any words of wisdom from some TF300T gurus would be a big help!
