If you scroll down to *************************Most current version*****************************************
you can get the latest version install able via twrp.


This rom is from i708Q http://www.iviewus.com/index.php/i-708q.html

Our Ares 8 use 5.0 which has bad memory leak, the rom from i708Q doesn't have the leak problem, so it's a good match for our Ares 8, it's and upgrade plus fixes our tablets leak.

known problems

volume is low on speaker, head set sound is fine
camera doesn't work.

Those that want to try are more than welcome, I tried to find the easiest way for you all to install it, I installed long way myself and tablet runs great, I will just post short way here, I flashed my tablet's bootloader back to 5.0 to make sure this way works.

I have included a windows and Linux scripts, you should only need to set permission on Linux script and it should be good to go, I guess same for windows.

adb reboot bootloader

then launch the script, I just open terminal drag and drop script in terminal windows.

once done tablet should self boot, takes sometime to boot, commands can also be typed via hand if you rather not run script.

Here is twrp backup.

download, extract to twrp folder, factory reset and restore.

*************************Most current version*****************************************

This is the most updated rom, includes camera and rotation fix.

To install place on sdcard boot into twrp and install like a normal rom or zip file, doesn't contain root, you can flash chainfire su to get root.

Twrp may seem like it's not doing anything but it is installing rom, onced rom is installed you will see a button saying reboot to system, first boot takes a while.

I always start fresh and factory reset, it may or may not be needed you can try either way.

I can't find a solution to the sound being low, so it will remain that way unless someone else finds a solution and fixes it.

Just personal noted, I don't use the live wallpaper, And I removed some apps I don't use, The system.img is complete and defaults to live wallpaper, you can keep or change to regular wallpaper, root and remove apps you don't use.

vampirefo,

I see you are back from vacation. I hope you enjoyed our State!

Just a dumb question more for my education than anything. Why can one not just upgrade with a TWRP image made from your upgraded tablet?
