I bought this at Aliexpress. I wanted case and display film so I used this site(→https://www.aliexpress.com/item/100..._list.0.0.21ef585a93X4fm&gatewayAdapt=glo2jpn)Where did you all buy your own Y700? AliExpress or other? Which seller (link?)? And what is your experience with selling to wherever you are on Earth?
Is Original and "Global ROM" really different? If so, how?
I think Original ROM anyways have at least english language built-in, right?
Thanks a lot in advance for all your answers.
Yeah. This tablet have zero competition in Android space and the sellers seems took advantage of that
Hey, what format are those firmwares? they dont look like any fasheable rom i've seen before, I tried to patch the boot.img with magisk, but its not able to boot with it, i also see that there are 3 different boot images (boot.img, boot_a.img and boot_b.img).Y700 firmware
In addition to turning on OEM unlock, you can unlock Bootloader by applying to Lenovo.
Even if Bootloader Unlock, it remains Widevine L1.
Well, after thinkering around for a while with the boot images on the stock rooms i decided to go for a GSI rom.Hey, what format are those firmwares? they dont look like any fasheable rom i've seen before, I tried to patch the boot.img with magisk, but its not able to boot with it, i also see that there are 3 different boot images (boot.img, boot_a.img and boot_b.img).
When i execute "fastboot flash boot [image]" it says that its flashing "boot_b".
I would like to keep the stock room for the desktop mode, but i'm not able to make it boot with any boot*.img that i can find whithin those files.
If i dont find the real boot image i can flash a GSI but it would be a shame.
After some more hours of trying things i came to the conclusion thatt he boot images from the roms on the internet are not compatible with my especific y700, and since i did not back up the ones on my device before patching, unless Lenovo releases another rom that contains a kernel compatible with my tablet im screwed.Well, after thinkering around for a while with the boot images on the stock rooms i decided to go for a GSI rom.
I flashed the lastest chaos GSI rom and everything seems to work except for the wifi, if i try to turn it on it just never does and switched back off automatically, so... i managed to get an unusable tablet in 10 hours from unboxing it.
Thank you!!To restore stock, download the linked qpst file and use this guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/install-stock-rom-xiaoxin-pad-pro-2021-tb-j716f.4347951/
So basically the only problem with Lineage OS GSI is the presense of the "su" binary? I'm just confirming, because for me SafetyNet is not something I need, and if it's breakage is the only drawback, then LineageOS seems like a best option out of all.I have flashed a lot of GSI on this tablet so far.
Here is a summary of the bugs and other issues that I have noticed in them.
※All of them are Android 12L except for the ones without special notes.
①Corvus OS, Descendant OS...Lock screen does not rotate. Probably because it is based on Google Pixel ROM. Corvus also does not have face unlock.
②Ancient OS(Android 12.0)...Lock screen does not turn to landscape. Also, when I change the username or photo at the top of the settings, the settings app crashes. Also note that the settings app crashes if you change the username or photo above the settings.
③Proton AOSP...When I restarted to set up Magisk, the settings app repeatedly stops. Deleting app data and cache had no effect.
④Havoc OS(Android 11)...The startup logo does not appear in the first place and comes back to the bootloader.
⑤Superior OS...It started, but the FPS dropped extremely. I judged that it is difficult to use regularly.
⑥Pixel Experience…The screen is still not landscape. Also, it seems that it is not optimized for tablets any more than Descendant, and when I call the dock while launching an app(the feature of 12L), the icon looks like it has been split in half.
⑦All of NipponGSI...Like Havoc OS, it comes back to the bootloader. It may be a bad compatibility.
⑧Lineage OS…There was a switch "Rotate lock screen" in the settings. But I don't use it, because the "su" binary is still in the root file and can't delete it ,so interferes with SafetyNet.
⑨Arrow OS...This also allows the lock screen to be turned landscape and is also very light. Although the lack of face unlock is a demerit (LSPosed module didn't work→https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/11-universalauth-face-unlock-for-all-roms.4419343/).But there are few complaints for me. So I'm using it regularly.
I'm sorry if it's hard to read because I'm not good at English. Thank you.
The autobritness settings in the overlay are a bit to low. I try to mod it and post the apk here if i get it right
