This is the Ubuntu version that Jcsullins used and you can find all files also on this site:

I have never come across a Tablet that is brick and never had to do the TPDebrick.
Why do you think that the Tablet is brick?
What is doing, or not doing?

Hi there,

It's not charging, not blinking, not showing the USB screen. In fact, the only thing it's been doing is sitting in a drawer for 2-3 years collecting dust
I lost the original charging plug and cable long ago, and I've used a number of other plugs and cables with no luck. I thought this was the best approach to try and bring it back to life, but I'm certainly open to any and all suggestions.

Battery cells are completely drain.

The Tablet needs to be charge with the original or a charger that provide the same Output: 5.3volts, 2.0amps

The battery needs to be charge properly, and must have enough charge to start and shows any graphics on the screen.

Thanks. I've tried with a number of 5V2A chargers, not sure if I have a 5.3 lying around. If not, I guess that's what Amazon's for...
I'll see what I have lying around at home and report back.

It must be specifically and exactly Output: 5.3volts, 2.0amps
Get authentic original HP TP charger.
It could takes days to even a light to blink.

Hi @Droid_JD,

Trust me, @HP_TOUCHPAD is correct..... I thought my HP Touchpad had died too, I'd not used it for a matter of months, maybe even a year.... and just assumed it would work once I plugged it in. I tried for days, weeks.... I tried all kinds of chargers, adapters, connecting to PC. Fast charge, hard charge, low trickle charge... everything !!! There was no life in it what-so-ever. I even read about the official Wireless charging stand, and bought one of those off eBay. (Beauty in buying that, I got a Wireless Charger, Case and another practically BRAND NEW Touchpad.... for £30).

Anyway, I used the Wireless charging stand, and still no joy... (apart from another Tablet).

But then, I plugged the original Touchpad into my brothers Linux PC, and followed the commands/instructions, and all of sudden.... BINGO... It sprung back into life !!!

I then followed the instructions in Toolbox to reflash the A6 firmware, and been charging the Touchpad ever since and it's not faulted since, it holds it charge perfectly.

Then check out a lot of @HP_TOUCHPAD" posts, they are an incredible source of knowledge. He explains it in amazing in depth detail, yet are really easy to follow... He's done wonders into bringing new life to our ageing devices...

Cheers, Lister

Tablet does not turn on even when charged
I tried to unbrick my HP Touchpad with the tools tpdebrick-v005 under Ubuntu. I carried out the manipulations described. The Touchpad is well recognized under Ubuntu. But I have an error message at the end of the process. Suddenly, my tablet remains off.
Error code:

Can you help me solve my problem?

Here is the result file I get.

Hello,
This may be a dead thread as these tablets are getting pretty old, but I like the challenge, plus it is/was a good table. Anyway, I have the same problem. I had revived my TP a couple of years ago using the tpdebrick method. It just died this week and trying to revive it I get the same message. Searching thru this thread, I had tried the various SSH changes suggested to no avail. If you have found a solution I would appreciate how you managed to fix it. Thanks
