Lenovo Tab 10 TB-X103F always get stuck in the bootloader

I had all the files together, went through this tutorial several times and finally wanted to flash my LENOVO. All the work just to realize that the bootloader is not working. No chance. I've tried everything. The tabet always got stuck in the bootloader. So I sent the broken tablet back. I would have liked to try it once!

This question because, I see that stated the 2GB version but I really want it on my 1GB version.

ADB-driver problem

Hello, I tried to follow this guide, but I am not able to install adb driver. I tried to use Windows driver (Win7), and also Lenovo drivers (Lenovo Driver: When I connect the tablet it is also shown as a Disk-drive. Inside that there is a Lenovo driver app). But anytime install adb-drivers failed. I also tried Clockworkmod universal drivers, but also this has not worked (maybe I did something wrong).

Because of that missing adb driver I cannot install TWRP (of course I enabled in developer options of tablet the USB debugging).

Has anybody working drivers or any idea to solve this problem?

Greetings Odiad.

Hey,
Two questions:
I got an issue with my camera working, can't connect to the camera and
had some zip error for this addonSu in TWRP, zip verification failure. Is this something you recognize?

Hello! My name is Brandon and I'm 29. I have been studying, reading and learning (still am.) everything I possibly can about all the different possibilities that are available when it comes to electronics in general. I tried to unlock and flash my Nextbook ares 11 but I only accomplished unlocking the bootloader, So I do what I do best and kept it persistent because persistence always prevails! I searched some more and I found this thread and it just so happens there was a Lenovo tab 10 tb-x103f laying around so I gave it a shot and . . . . . . . . BOOM!! I accomplished every step and it now operates with Lineage 14.1 OS! I ran into some similar issues that are listed above but I held to and I was able to come out SUCCESSFUL! I just want to say THANK YOU soo very much for the knowledge and putting un-corrupted software on here. This is a huge accomplishment to me and I shall continue with being persistent lol

Hola, tengo la versión de 1 GB de RAM y soy realmente nuevo en todo esto
No tengo almacenamiento externo, así que estoy usando almacenamiento interno para los archivos. Hasta ahora he logrado instalar twrp 3.0.2, supersu y lineage os 14.1 pero no puedo instalar los gapps abiertos.
El mensaje de error es "No se pudo asignar el archivo (ruta, nombre de archivo)" y "Error al instalar el archivo zip (ruta, nombre de archivo).
Intenté abrir brechas abiertas después de flashear el linaje y después de reiniciar el linaje parpadeó.
¿Alguna sugerencia?
[/ CITA]
Me uno a tu pregunta...

After flashing this ROM to TB-X103F 1gb Ram ( Wifi only ) the touch calibration completely wrong.
While in TWRP touch works normally.

e.g. the screen is vertical but the touch as if the screen is horizontal and the opposite the same.

How to solve this. I've tried most of the custom roms available all with same issue.
