Hi, yes....over a minute and it comes back to life afterwards (having to press power button for 15 secs) to the flashing red triangle again.
Could I ask if someone can kindly confirm that I have managed to actually kill this tablet?
To sum up:
I have tried to reinstall the stock rom through a Mac's terminal command line on an unlocked bootloader having wiped user data and cache. Unfortunately I ignorantly only flashed the boot image and not the entire stock rom folder which included the recovery. Now, on boot it flashes the Android red triangle man and says 'supported API:3'. I can only switch this off by poking the reset button. It cannot be recognised through ADB shell via USB.
- Are my attempts to find a recovery mode futile as I have managed to delete the initial recovery?
- Is there a scenario by which an Android device can be rendered completely useless, and if so, have I found it?
- I've read of SP Flash tools...can this toolkit communicate (via Windows machine)?
- How do manufacturers install onto a completely empty disk in the first place, and is there a route to recovery via that?
Again, I am very grateful for this community for the support offered...trying to learn by the empirical route certainly comes at a price!
