Every link I tired for firmware is dead
The firmware I downloaded from this thread previously soft bricked my tablet, be carefulEvery link I tired for firmware is dead
Same hereI am finding dead links in this thread as well as the "Magisk Patched Boot Image" in the root guide.
Good point. Will do!@Sands207, one thing to be especially mindful of is the hardware variations. Your SN will begin with either a CF or MD, on both the Gen 1 and Gen 2 models. Be sure you download your firmware from the corresponding section in this regard.
And if you have any issues whatsoever, just leave a comment and I'll do my best to get you through it.Good point. Will do!
Thank you, I definitely appreciate it. I'm going to take a crack at it again later today. I'm currently developing for several other devices and got side trackedAnd if you have any issues whatsoever, just leave a comment and I'll do my best to get you through it.
Which tablet do you have? The Gen 1 or Gen 2? Also, what are the first 2 letters of your serial number?So are there any other sources for this firmware? I haven't been able to get it since I have been following this thread. I'm trying to fix my nieces pos tablet, she's five and she doesn't have another one to use in the meantime. Hard to believe this is the only source for this fw, but for the life of me I can't find a damn thing. Anyone have any suggestions? Would be much appreciated. Thanks

It's a gen 2 serial MD
I’ve bricked it so hard that tastboot and recovery won’t come up. Only a bl as no screen with a bright backlight.
It says it’s an A100 chip with MD as a startling S/N
Can you link me with the firmware needed.
You may have been running.a newer build than the v06 I sent. Your label indicates that the v06 is the correct package for your model, so it should flash properly. Here is a link also for the v09 build, but keep in mind that it is for the S/N CF model.I would have sworn that this tablet had the v9 and at one point I saw that it had an A133 chip in some recovery logs but I failed to document that. So we downloaded the v9 from before and we can’t get it to take under any route you’ve got.
Thanks for the firmware and I’ll try it tonight.
Attached you find the full SN

Hey there my friend. I am seeming to be having issues trying to installWhat links are you referring to? All firmware links are working. Also the v6 and v9 firmware packages are for two different variants of the Scepter 8.
Okay I think I know what links you are referring to. Not the main firmware links on the first page, but some links within the thread which were extracted firmware packages (containing super.img, boot.img, bootloader.img, etc.). And yes you are correct that those links are probably no longer valid. However, if you are needing an extracted firmware I can help. What package are you needing extracted?
Me again lol having some issues setting up the scepter to install lineages os. The patched boot img I've patched through Magisk flashes great but then only loads to qlink image and that's it. I have to reflash with original img to get it back going. What am I doing wrong ?There are actually 4 variants: two variants of the Gen 1 model; and 2 variants of the Gen 2 model. But, both Gen 1 variants have the Allwinner-A100. Some CPU identifier apps may falsely detect the A100 as an A133. The reason for this is due to A133 notations in /system/bulld.prop and /vendor/build.prop. For all intents and purposes, the A100 and A133 are fully compatible with one another in terms of firmware and software support. It would appear that the device maker originally intended to use the A133 in the Gen 1, but for whatever reason - perhaps cost efficiency - opted for the A100.
But, to ascertain the identity of your chipset with 100% certainty, you may remove your tablet's back cover with ease. Use a guitar pick or edging tool and the back cover snaps off without screws or adhesive. Embossed on your chipset should be the nomenclature A100 in a white font.
Does your serial number begin with CF? If so, you can use any firmware from the Android 12 "CF" heading. I will be repairing all firmware links tonight, as well as links to the root boot images.I also have the same build and stuff. The link on the first page, the modified boot file is missing, and also the firmware downloads are missing or else I just make my own
Edit: not missing but mega took it down
Thank you for uploading them =)Firmware builds for all models & variants are now available via the download links in the OP. The remaining dead links will be fixed very shortly .
Lol. I am not a windows user. So I honestly have no idea. It's a mini acer laptop that I keep in a drawer lmao .im going to attempt this now.
also Windows 7 32 bit? what country do you live?
i have 4 laptops, perhaps i can ship you one of them
