Hi, sorry but I'm new to rooting and all... I have a completely stock and new NextBook Ares 8 5.0 that I want to upgrade to 5.1(as system update doesn't work) to remove the memory leak bug, as well as to decrypt the tablet to make it faster... Can I just follow the instructions on here to achieve that? Also I am on windows, so could someone help me out on how to get started on making my tablet usable?

1) My bootloader is unlocked (since its stock and new haha), how do I unlock it?
2) Even before that... My device is not appearing in the list when I do "adb devices", even after going to Device Manager... And I didn't find any Nextbook Ares 8 drivers online... Can I just use the hard keys (Power button + Vol. Up) to go to bootloader menu and start using the commands from there?

Please and thanks...

Downloading as we speak hopefully it will work the speed keeps dropping out. Trying to test out some other ROMs but am having problems coming from the iView rom. Hoping this will get me back to something closer to stock.

Update: Download failed again. Wonder if Androidfilehost is having problems.

Ive followed all the instructions slowly, but seem to have an issue.
After its completed tablet just sits with the flashing Nextbook startup animation, which i left for over an hour, but with no change.
I can see there seems to be a problem formatting the partitions, but i'm not bright enough to work out what the issue is.
Please any help is appreciated
