How to upgrade

I. Preparation

1. Choose and download an IMG (Firmware):
a) StockROM: Yuandao Firmware download page
b) CustomROM: Vondroid CFW for window N90 II (BZ-CZ version)
c) CustomROM: TNT Official Release 3
2. If necessary download "RKbackTool".
2b. Alternate US/English Download RKbatchTool: US/English RKbatch Tool and Firmware
3. Extra Driver shouldn't be needed, Win7 will recognize the device -> therefore don't install manually ADB, or USB-Driver.
4. Charge Tablet to >70%

II. Flash

1. Turn tablet (off) and disconnect every cable and charger.
2. Start on PC "RKBatchTool.exe" and choose under the item "FW Path" an IMG (see I. Preparation).
3. Now press Volume (+) on tablet -> keep pressing and connect at the same time the tablet (upper microUSB port, not OTG) with PC -> as soon as you hear the PC is successfully connected or you see in RKBatchTool under "Connected Devices" a green light, then you can stop pressing Volume (+) and the tablet should be recognized from "RKBatchTool".
4. Click in RKBatchTool "Restore" (not Upgrade) and the flash process should begin; the first-time boot will last longer than normally - you can close RKBatchTool and disconnect the USB cable as soon as the tablet is booted.

Unbrick

Open your tablet.
On the CPU board between the CPU/Memory zone and camera zone there are a few plots.
3 of them marked with GND, TX and RX and the more important 2 more UNMARKED but contained in a square (the place of a micro switch)
So the tablet wont start... OK
Fire up the RK batch tool and load a stock firmware
Shorten the two plots (the missing switch) and keeping them shorted press POWER, if everything goes OK then computer will recognize a new device and installs it.
The well known green square should become DARK BLUE!
Press RESTORE not UPGRADE!
WAIT process to finish
WARNING again, use the USB ports directly soldered on computer motherboard (backplate), I have concluded that the front USB on 3 computers dont work for tablet upgrades.
