Exclamation Restore STOCK FIRMWARE
Hi Guys now i'm gonna teach you how to install the Stock Rom
this is useful when u BRINK your device
so this is a UNBRINK Procedure

DISCLAIMER:I'm Not Responsabe for any damage on your tablet or if your warantie is avoid, do this by your owm responsability

DOWNLOAD FLASH TOOLS

ok after you donwload all the files follow this steps
well in the file of the ROM there is all u need to install the rom

ROM - SP FLASH

but there is no the PRELOADER DRIVER so u need to download the other Flash tools to install just search it inside the folder and install it
Notice that is an UNSIGNED DRIVER so if u r using WIndows 8 or 8.1 you need to diable it after that your r going to be ok

I did it my self and it worked

1.- Uncompress the Rom File
2.- Locate the Falsh Tools Inside
Locate ROM Folder
3.- Open he flash tools as ADMIN
SP FLASH
3.- Load the Scratter File To flash tools
Opening Rom File

to thispoint u had to have installed the device in preloader file

HOW>???

turn OFF Your tablet

and connect with the usb cable , soon as you plug in you will the in the Device manager an uninstalled Device as MT
5** PRELOADER or somethink like that

then install it with the driver in the flash tools folder and you are done


4.-HIT FIRMWARE UPDATE to start the instalation
5.- Connect your tablet toh the USB cable and wait till the Program ends
6.- The procces take about 5 minutes
7.- when the process finish u r goint to het a windows with a green circle and your tablet will turn off so UNPLIG THE TABLET
PRESS AND HOLD THE POWER BUTTON UTILL STARTS

Angry Inside the lenovo

Here are some Pictures of the INSIDE

Enjoy

i noticed that there is place for a SIM CARD SOCKET
and a couple contacts in the top ( for speaker maybe)
i'm going to see what i can do with it

Thumbs up What about reviews?
Any one that has posted a review of this tablet? I'm considering to buy this one but not many reviews out there. I had the A1000-F but because of the USB port I have to update and planning to stick with Lenovo.
