Hello dudes,
Past day I have cracked my tablets front glass w/ a sudden drop but i can still touch the screen and use the tablet, but today I pressed tablet by a mistake and the touch is useless now. I searched AliExpress and found "digitizer touch glass screen" for US $14.00 will it make my tablet usable again or what shall I buy and apply to my tablet to bring it usable again?

Thanks :)
Usually should not be a problem to change the touch, if all the other part of tablet are in good condition. I have not disassembled the tablet so I don't know if there 's some glued parts between touch digitizer and screen. Hope not.

I'd give a try installing another rom, for example just the system.img from version 1.5 for g708 normal edition . As I explained before is much more optimized. You can do it downloading entire downloadable pack on original colorful homepage, and taking the single file, and flashing it through flashtool. At your own risk. I tested extreme to normal is possible, I guess the reverse too.

GAPPS for G708

Hi,
i got my g708 few days ago -Rom G708_OC_SV1.10_KV1.2_CAM_RD_20150806. This version is apparently w/o gapps - no access to google store. I tried the following to install gapps, so far no success.
- rooted using kingo apps, installed recovery twrp, touchscreen does not respond in recovery mode, so can't install from recovery
- trying to flash other colorfly roms using sp flashtool - it seems the my PC (WIN 10) lack some drivers - the sptool does not download to software to the device - nothing happens when I click download, after the tool loads the rom to the sofware
-download the apk files and installed them using es explorer -put them in the system directory, giving r/w permissions ect, it installed them, however I keep getting error notifications - something google process has stopped. Any ideas?
Many thanks in advance

Here is Patched and ready for flash EBR 1/2 files for our tablet https://cloud.mail.ru/public/8da9f4ca62f3/ebr%2B4gb%2Bkitkat.rar
Hi,
I flashed them, but unfortunately now my tablet is in a bootloop... I only see the animated "G", although I waited for >30min. USB works, and also MTK Droid Tools are able to read the tablet.
I could flash back my backup, but then the partitions won't be changes. Any ideas what to do? Thank you!

edit: solved it - had to flash the newest rom (it's without gapps :( ), then flash the modified EBR, and finally flash my backup without EBR.

Hello everybody, I am a newbie and I think i screw my tablet!

I followed the post xxx , installed the drives "DA USB VCOM Port " with the application Smart Phone Flash tool.
It gave me a green " Download Ok" and i closed the application.

When I try to power on the tablet simply does not do anything . Even when i try to charge it, nothing happens .

When I connect the device to the PC, i heard the connecting sound on the PC but nothing happens.

Can someone help me?:confused: Is my tablet bricked?:confused:

Thanks, and sorry about my bad English ;)

Sorry for posting here, but I cannot find anything relative to the problem described below.

I bought a brand new COLORFLY G708 3G for my son's birthday. The tablet worked only one day. Next today its screen doesn't show any picture, but is not completely dark, which says the screen is enabled. Also the tablet can sometimes vibrate when moving finger over the screen, but again I cannot see any picture, so I don't know which events are triggered.

I tried to do a hard reset by pressing the power and + buttons, but nothing happened and I cannot reach and see the recovery screen. May be there is another method to do a hard reset by not using the screen.

Please advice!
Thanks
Evgeny

It seems you have flashed wrong or incompatible software. Re-do flash procedure with all correct software.

From what you described looks a disconnected screen. You see no boot screen or colorfly logo?

Yes, I don't see the boot screen and colorfly logo as well.
The screen looks as if it has a faint back light, but it doesn't show any actual picture.

How to reconnect the screen?
I have small screwdrivers and other tools, if necessary, but don't know what to look at. I don't care if opening the tablet will break guarantee.

Thanks

I can't find any disassembly guide on the net, so I can't be helpful in this.
Just I can tell that I'd prefer to spend shipping to China and send in warranty because it 's too expensive to risk to buy a spare part screen when the defect may be just in the main board socket.

Is your phone rooted?

If not there's not other attempts you can do.

If rooted you can put through any file manager the play store apk file in system/priv-app folder and see what's happen.

Or you may use some third party app which install play store or in the last attempt install twrp recovery with mtk - tools and install a custom google app package for Android 4.4.2, after doing a backup of all system.

Kingroot apk or kingoroot from pc (seems same but it's not so) works fine, but i prefer kingroot.

Last ROM G708_Oc_SV1.2_KV1.2_CAM_RD_20151118 official feels very snappy and smooth, great feeling while using it. No lags or stuttering. It's downloadable from official colorful.cn page . It hasn't gapps but personally i installed minimal KitKat gapps package and works fine.

    1. Ok, because I tried a backup directly with Rashr and it errors out...maybe not enough memory...Need to look at TWRP, sorry if this sounds obvious but how does one install TWRP from Rashr

    In Rashr go to Recovery from Storage and pick up your download Custom Recovery file and install .
    Here is Download link for Custom Recovery TWRP https://cloud.mail.ru/public/69118ce4be10/recovery-TWRP_v1.img

    P. S. Dont forget to hit Thanks button if i Help you :)

    Anyway root and mtkdroidtools may not work properly due to some settings in default.prop file. I have done a modded boot.img to make all work as it should.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/js0dfph411guv57/boot-new.img?dl=0

    ro.secure=0
    ro.allow.mock.location=1
    ro.debuggable=1
    ro.adb.secure=0

    Adb insecure app from playstore is needed too.

    1. Make Full Backup of your apps, data, etc. if you dont want to lose them. For back up use TWRP recovery or what you want.
    2 .Install the MTK drivers
    3. Use This flash tool 3.1352.01 (5.1352.01) https://cloud.mail.ru/public/03d5ee5505eb/SP%20Flash%20Tool%203.1352.01%20(5.1352.01).rar
    4. Download 1.03 ROM https://cloud.mail.ru/public/699ab0bc31f0/G708%20Oc_SV1.03_KV1.0_20150207.zip
    5. Run flash Tool as Administrator (better close down everything else except flash tool )
    - In Flash Tool " Download agent " load MTK_AllInOne_DA.bin
    - In Flash Tool " Scatter Loading " load the " MT6592_Android_scatter " ( unzip the 1.03 ROM and choose scatter file inside the rom folder )
    6. Make sure that USB Debugging is checked on your G708 and turn off it.
    7. In flash tool in " Download " choose " Frimware Upgrade " from drop menu
    8. Press Download and after that connect the G708 to your PC with USB cable.
    9. And Just wait to finish the Procedure. If Everything is OK you will have New 1,03 ROM

    So i flashed stock recovery and tried to install the OTA 1.0.3. That did not work also. Went back to TWRP and stay on 1.0.2
    If you want try to flash with Flash Tool. It seems that for now we dont have Solution about the OTA 1.03 . Or stay on 1.02 till we find Solution.
