My device, stock chinese rom, unlocked bootloader, ota update from ver 12 to 13.1.555, only after that I was able to lock bootloader again without getting corrupt message. You can check again to see that if you update ota, it will skip ver 13.0.346 and goes straight from ver 12 to 13.0.364 with the file size above.

Tips: you go to Setting - Notification & status bar, turn on Show network realtime speed. Check the system update, the update file will be download automatically (check the network speed to see), after finish downloading the file, you go back to the system update to install.

QFIL does not manage to flash my device, I see
Code:
Get Partition Files Failed: MetaCLI not found !!!
in the logs.

Any ideas?
news my friend.....i do ;)

this is my solution for this error "get partition files failed metacli not found"
find in lenovo forum in chinese and traslated!!!

"If you get an error even after doing this, go to Configuration -> FireHose Configuration
Set everything else the same
At the top, next to Download Protocol, next to 0-Sahara, check [Reset State Machine], press OK, and try Download Content again. I did this and the error was resolved. "

I did the same thing, but I'm still getting the corrupted message.
You need to update to all latest build before lock the bootloader.
The latest should be 556 or 566.... you can follow the guide :

Have you tried unlocking your bootloader?
Unlocking my bootloader solved the corrupt message and my device Indicated it’s unlocked when in recovery.
That enabled me to flash back to original rom to start all over
The Zui site didn't send me the SN file yet. I need that to unlock the bootoad right ? I'm waiting for three days.

    How to install Stock ROM - Xiaoxin Pad Pro 2021 [TB-J716F]

    I tried installing a GSI-ROM on this tablet, which basically worked except for three/four bugs I coulnd't solve.
    So I tried to restore the Stock ROM in the meantime and will share my experience.
    Your data will be deleted, try it at your own risk.

    Requirements:
    Installation:
    1. Boot tablet in EDL-Mode, there are two ways (in EDL-Mode screen always remains off):
      • If tablet is fully booted: use adb command "adb reboot edl"
      • If tablet is off or can't be booted: press the volume up button and hold, plug the usb cable into the tablet and PC and wait a few seconds
    2. Now this should appear in your device manager:
      device_manager.png
    3. Start the QFIL-Programm, it should detect the port with the same name.
    4. Go to "Configuration" -> "FireHose Configuration". At device type select "ufs" and tick "Reset After Download" then press ok:

    5. Back in the main window select "Programmer Path" and browse to the ROM-Folder, select the file "prog_firehose_ddr.elf".
    6. Select "Content XML" and browse to the ROM-Folder, select the file "contents.xml"
    7. Click "Download Content" and wait, may take a few minutes
    8. After its done, this status message should a appear and the tablet should reboot.

    Done, Stock-ROM should boot now.

    Hi guys, I'll leave my contribution here. I was forced to reinstall the ROM as I had the excellent idea to lock Bootloader with the 'Global' ROM installed. Everything went wrong and my tablet didn't start anymore, it was just on the Fastboot screen. The “Tropaion” tutorial helped me a lot.

    I was using Windows 11, and it didn't recognize the tablet at all and when it did, it gave an error at the time of “download content” in QFIL, the famous error of “sahara fail”. At least in my case, I had to do the procedures for Windows 10 newly installed on the machine.

    Starting from the beginning

    • I used the QFIL that comes with QPST_2.7.496. Qualcomm's driver installer came with it as well. (https://qpsttool.com/)
    • After installing QPST I put the ROM folder inside the bin folder. Example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\QPST\bin\TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZUI_12.6.211_ST_210730_qps"
    • I started QFIL and configured it according to what “Tropaion” taught.

    The EDL Dilemma

    • As my tablet was already stuck on the Fastboot screen, so I turned it off and pressed the volume up button, connected the cable to the PC and tablet, waited a few seconds and released the button.
    • Soon it went into EDL mode (It stays with the screen off, but connected to the PC) and I continued the procedure in QFIL. (If there is any error and you want to exit this mode just press the volume up & Power On/Off button together for ~30s, but if everything works out you won't need to)
    • Then he did the installation and the Lenovo Xiaoxin Pad Pro 2021 worked perfectly. But with the bootloader unlocked.

    Locking Bootloader with Chinese ROM installed


    - When I turned on the Xiaoxin Pad it already had an update from Lenovo. And it was updated successfully!
    - I installed the Play Store through the lenovo store, and even the tablet is with the Play Protect Certificate activated and Widevine L1 everything ok.


    Important: This method worked for me, but it doesn't mean it will work for you. Unforeseen events can happen during the procedure. As I've never installed a ROM in my life, it took me quite a while to fix my error and get my Tablet back up and running :). So do it at your own risk.

    Hope this helps ;)

    Finally managed to install China ROM. I started with unlocked bootloader and Banggood tablet with global ROM.
    Everything OK, finally got Widevine L1, OTA. Only English and Chineze languages. Netfix works in FullHD.

    I have run into sahara fail issue on windows 11. To resolve this, I followed @PHRS and @Tropaion guides. USB debugging has to be enabled first in the tablet menu.

    1. Install Qualcomm USB Driver v1.0 and restart computer

    2. Install QPST Tool in default path ProgramFiles(x86) https://qpsttool.com/qpst-tool-v2-7-496
    3. Extract ROM content in C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\QPST\bin\TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER; I guess this is important, because if I left the ROM in a Desktop folder, I got Sahara fail. May be due to windows 11 security implementation and ProgramFiles file access stuff...
    4. Connect tablet in EDL mode - I did it with with adb command "adb reboot edl"
    5. Check if the tablet is visible in Device manager, under Ports (COM&LPT); note the port number. Tablet screen is black.
    6. Execute as Administrator "C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\QPST\bin\QFIL.exe"; the port number from step 5 should be visible in QFIL.
    7. Setup QFIL / FireHose Configuration as indicated in Opening post (0-Sahara, ufs, reset after download)
    8. Browse Programmer path with "C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\QPST\bin\TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER\prog_firehose_ddr.elf" and Content XML with "C:\Program Files (x86)\Qualcomm\QPST\bin\TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER\contents.xml"
    Screenshot 2021-11-24 182003.png


    9. Click download content. For me it worked fast, the log showed the processes running in a few steps. I had a USB3 connection, maybe this is why it went very fast (~20-30 seconds).
    10. Tablet can be rebooted with the new ROM, but still Widevine L3
    11. To lock the bootloader, first install LenovoUsbDriver_v1.1.47
    12. Use @Tropaion lock batchscript https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...n-pad-pro-2021-tb-j716f.4347321/post-85775623
    13. The bootloader is locked and the tablet is reset. Widevine L1 and OTA after this.
    14. A bit weird boot with all the Chineze, but embedded apps can be easily uninstalled. I installed Aptoide, then Google Play, Netflix, Swiftkey instead of the chinese one, etc.

    Thank you @Tropaion, @PHRS and the rest of XDA community. All the best!

    LE. By the way, when I first got the tablet I thought the wifi module is broken or something, because it connected my wifi, but with limited connection. I finally realized that the date/time was wrong (because of the empty battery I guess), and after I manually adjusted the date, internet connection was established.

    It has multi-language and on the product page banggood says it comes rooted with Chinese ROM with play store installed and multi-languages.
    If it was original Chinese rom, it should have update option. Am I right?
    Hello @sabaku_chris! Your tablet has unofficial Chinese ROM.

    The official Chinese ROM does not come with the Google Play Store pre-installed and only comes in two languages, English and Chinese. It comes with firmware upgrade option (via OTA), with Widevine L1 and, if you install Google Play Store, comes with Play Protect Certificate.

    An advice: But if you don't need these features, continue with the version that was already installed on it. In case of doubt, do not change the ROM.

    This is a guide for anyone that is trying to lock the bootloader and receiving a "Your device is corrupt" message.

    I just got my Xiaoxin Pad Pro 2021 [TB-J716F] which had the global rom and unlocked boot loader. I followed CleberJorge's amazing guide to put the original Chinese rom on which worked perfectly up until you have to lock the bootloader, which I then got the “Your device is corrupt…” message.

    To solve this you have to manually update to the latest version ZUI 13 before locking the bootloader again. Once you have done this you will be able to do OTA updates and you will have widevine L1 support for HD Netflix etc.

    CleberJorge's guide to flash to stock chinese rom is here https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...n-p11-pro-2021-original-rom-tb-j716f.4446671/

    The process for updating manually is the following:

    1) download the update.

    2) use a file explorer and move it to the root folder of your device.

    3) rename it to "update.zip".

    4) Got to Settings => System Update => "Select the 3 dots top right and select 'Use the install package update'

    Repeat these steps for each individual update

    The order of updates are (this is from the stock Chinese rom version of TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZUI_12.6.211_ST_210730_qpst

    1) TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZUI_12.6.238_ST_210824_to_TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZUI_13.0.346_ST_211108.zip - download link https://mega.nz/file/4h13DI4R#09imnGFk0c16CPNG635AYIClewuF5rXkiaj3xqGmjA8

    2) TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZUI_13.0.346_ST_211108_to_TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZUI_13.0.364_ST_211115.zip - download link https://mega.nz/file/l5ljWChS#rL44OM0-PuIFGZWSwr46pJr5S8NcY0JuYH7ctEeVTNs

    3) TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZUI_13.0.364_ST_211115_to_TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZU...zip - download link https://forum.xda-developers.com/at...j716f_cn_open_user_q00209-3_r_zu-zip.5522973/

    4) TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZUI_13.0.430_ST_220113_to_TB-J716F_CN_OPEN_USER_Q00209.3_R_ZU...zip - download link https://forum.xda-developers.com/at...j716f_cn_open_user_q00209-3_r_zu-zip.5598667/

    So the version you need to be running before attempting to lock the bootloader is 13.1.555 so double check your version in settings => My Device

    @CleberJorge you might want to add this to your guide.

    Spent alot of time cracking this annoying issue, so hope it helps a few people out.
    *Note this procedure works as of 25/5/22, it may change if there's a new update.
