Yes, the build number contains the version. If you see anything regarding to V9 or V12 on the thread, we're talking about the 2nd number after the dash (Vxx-x.X.x). These are different revisions with different firmware images that aren't compatible with each other.
Also, if you have a version NepoRood doesn't have in the Stock Firmware post, let him know. It'll help a LOT!
Regarding unlock, root, install SuperSU and flashing custom ROM on Maven Pro. I am not exactly a newcomer for this (I did just this on a Nexus 5 tablet, using TWRP, adb and fastboot on my Ubuntu laptop. It took me 5 days though, I am only 77). I have a lot of questions about the procedure given by Senior Member NepoRood and others. I hope the other members have the patience to answer my questions. Thanks to NepoRood, ShadowCX11 & all for the replies to my previous question.
First and foremost, my Maven Pro (using either USB port) is not recognized from my Ubuntu Laptop. USB debugging is enabled on the tablet. Neither of the commands adb devicess/fastboot devices, gets a response from the tablet. No prompt appears on the tablet to authorize my laptop for USB debugging (as it did with Nexus 5 tablet). Does the tablet require special drivers on Ubuntu OS (or on Windows 10)?
My tablet firmware version is V68-V1.12.30-B. Do the procedures of NepoRood and others apply to it? Do I have to do the "patching" fix of Custom_Maven_V36-1.9.21.zip?
I would like to know what the different downloads are for before following the procedure.
Does the procedure install/flash a custom ROM (not from Cyanogenmod) on the tablet? Which organization developed this? In what way is it better from the one already on the tablet?
After reading around, it seems to me that Maven Pro is MTK-based and requires(may be) modified TWRP recovery on the tablet (rather than original TWRP) to install this and flash custom ROM requires SP flash tools.
Do adb and fastboot (commands on Ubuntu/Windows 10) work with the Maven Pro?
Do I understand it right?
Is it true t that I can use the downloads on Windows computer only?
I prefer to be on Ubuntu (the 5-second window of time of the preloader is too fast for me).
Sorry, it took me longer than I intended, I've got several projects going at the moment. I managed to upload the Linux version of the SP Flash Tool, it's in the Download link.
No, no special cable is required. Sorry about my earlier post, I was confusing the Maven with the Viking (no adb for Viking without WiFi app)
I can connect to the Maven just fine (it shows up as MT65XX Android Phone) using my Micro USB cable, which came with one of the phones lying around here.
DON"T buy a cable from RCA and see attachments below.
If you're using linux, you just have to set up some stuff, I'll try to find the link to the guide I used and get back to you. Also, questions are good, it helps other people out that might be having same issue
Here's the Guide I used, even though I couldn't get the flash tool to work unless using sudo (ie: sudo ./flash_tool). Not only will it help you to set up the SP Flash Tool, it'll also help your linux machine recognize your Maven
I followed the instructions to install USB drivers (suggested by Senior Member Miss Montage: sudo apt-get install libusb-dev; echo $? returned 0) my Maven Pro was not recognized; the mount command doesn't show Maven Pro but does show my USB storage device.
In Windows 10, the device manager shows it as an unrecognized device. So, it could be a matter of drivers. Your post did say that some drivers have to be installed. Your post suggested several downloads (zip files, img files. I downloaded all of them and processed the zip/rar files as you suggested. A lot of files were created as a result in folders named with extensions of zip/rar dropped.
It seems to me only a few of the files are really needed apart from the img files but it is not clear to me which are to be used from where. I will post my questions later.
May be after I install the drivers, with luck, the tablet will be recognized in Windows 10.
I know as little about Ubuntu 16.04 as about Windows 10.
Thanks a lot for your patience.
