Newb instructions!! PLEASE READ..Bootloader problem

My story starts with a Pandigital Novel. The white version...Fell in love with it. Was supposed to be an e-reader and then I stumbled upon a hack of the tablet. i actually did it (I'm pretty intermediate in tech stuff) and fell in love with it. Of course I live in New York and did the dumbest mistake possible which was to one day leave it in my car,to which I found a broken window and a missing PDN.The crack-head couldn't have been that tech savyy...idiot probably thought it was a IPAD. Anyway I then bought the Pandigital Novel( the black Version) and was dismayed that it was a "newer model" but lacked the Ghz or Android 2.0. So I gave up and just used it to read my ebooks..and try a few low level games. until the mighty gods intervened and it was shattered upon falling. My o-worker had a Next3 and I fell in love with it,so i ordered one off of ebay and got it for a whopping 70 bucks!! lol...Then was the task to flash it. i looked everywhere and found this thread and of course put the image file on my sd card to no avail. It would say bootloader cannot load file or something like that. Anyway I finally figured out that I have to follow these instructions first before I can root and have fun with my next3.


The reason I'm writing this is that if anyone would've told me from the beginning to just follow those easy steps first it would've saved me much trial and tribulation. So people ...follow those easy steps and then load the image file unto the program and play around with diffrent versions. I'm currently running the Prestigio firmware found earlier in this post by Donaldj83 at the bottom of all his firmwares....the tools:


I'm running the English version(CLEANED UP) and so far I love it. LOOOOVE it!! Newbs first download the tools kit and follow instructions then load up the image file you want on your Next3!! Good Luck:eek:

Donaldj83 has other firmware that'll run at the beginning of this post!!! Try em' and see what fits. BTW I found that replacing the borders (ebook reading app) with Moon+Reader app is your best replacement IMO. Thanks guys at xda and everyone else

A big thanks!

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou to OP Donald and many other contributors on this thread for their efforts. My "Mother-In-Law" just got a Next3 from her sis and asked me how to get the Wordfued app on it. Well...

Anyway, All sorted now running Froyo v5 Rom!
Love your work!

It won't work as MIUI doesn't have support for RK2818.
MIUI is the same breed than CyanogenMod.
Then pick CM7 for RK2818 here
or take the ROM of JDFense or mine when I release PMP3084B version... next week

First impress:
- hd video works fine with standardplayer, not with the rocketplayer
- wifi fine, maybe faster as usual
- market fine
-gapps fine
-boot time very slow <--- after some reboots it will gone better
-perfomance for this large rom okay
-no autorotation screen

Yo Daremo, I think you did the trick with gingerbread for rk2818:):):)
Congratulations Mr. DEV.:D

Some fine tuning and this rom could be the final rom for us. If I have some time, maybe tomorrow, I work on versions for Genesis and PMP3084B.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykJsfp3xaC0 :D:eek::D

Now I have to put Youtube to work... I forgot that stuff!!!

and also USB HOST ... I love that feature!!!
and of course rotation... but remember rotation is a KERNEL dependant stuff
it work fine in my device when I use a Bmorn BM800 kernel.
To solve this it's needed to change rotation in some core applications in AndroidManifest.xml

============================================================

GB.2.3.7 for RK2818 with Rockchip HW video acceleration working

This is the place where my original post was until FUN_, de original creator of the image, make a moderator remove it claiming that I've copied his files

Judge by yourself.

1. My ROM is working perfectly... while his ROM have the problem of BSOD (Black Screen of Death) which is device blocked after resume.
2. My ROM have flash support... fun: doesn't have it
3. My ROM work fine with USB HOST
4. My ROM play perfectly movies and music.

ok... its enough

fun_: FUKAUMI Naoki (naobsd) is a developer who can't accept that other do things better than him

he wrote this:

"I don't mind if someone uses my file. my files are free. I don't mind "who is number one!?" here crying like a crocodile then going to moderators to make other work dissapear.

Fun_ it's not just a developer, it's a lawyers and the Spanish Inquisition.

Maybe thats easy with youtube. In froyo it was only the right version as far as I remember. Let me see...

The autoration works but mirror reversed on x-axis. Is there no way to adjust this in system.img like fun_ did it?

if you want to use DaremoS's image with your stock kernel, use following properties
Code:
sensor.accelerometer.flip_xy=1
sensor.accelerometer.invert_x=1
sensor.accelerometer.invert_z=1
instead of
Code:
accelerometer.flip_xy=1
accelerometer.invert_x=1
accelerometer.invert_z=1
in /system/build.prop.

some week ago, I changed source code to use shorter props. DaremoS use new props but he didn't use new files in my new image. new shorter props don't have effect in his rom.

I hope you'll notice soon what he can do... all he can do is stealing my files, making lesser copy, and howling bowwow.

First shoot...

Wrong!!! it have been tested by the people of Forotablets... many testers and they seems to be really happy!!!

No bugs announced... just some functions missed!!

They're going to nominate me as "Desarrollador de Mierda" which in Spanish means The Best Developer of the World ... of course for RK2818.

Okay, stay cool, keep your feet on the ground. Don't come over with all those dangerous spanish talking tough guys, Mr. Desarrollador de Mierda.:D:mad::D

For you to know "Desarrollador de Mierda" in german is "entwickler der Scheiße" according to Systran similar to " Schweinehum" :D
You mean Schweinehund a kind of though guy:D
So I have to be careful with your rough temper.:rolleyes:

Prestigio 3084 B no boot...:confused:
Oh, I had the same problem before Daremo gave me a hint.
You need to erase the IMB before flashing with this rom.

Yes I read it. Prior to flashing this ROM I did use RkAndroidtool.exe to delete the IMB. It said "Delete IMB successuful". And so I flashed the Dar237Pre.img ROM with RKAndroidBatchUpgrade.exe. It went fine, the installing CACHE stuff went fine, I got the 800*480 colorful screen with Smart Future and some chinese writing and after that there is a blank black screen (with backlight on) for more than 10min. NOT booting too. Did I miss something?

EDIT: I did the reset, It's definitely stuck right after the Smart Future image...

Maybe. I have erased it there with all checkmarks set. The light in the Rkbatchtool is after this procedure blue.

Maybe what?

Perhaps I should flash with "RK28Upgrade.exe" which is the linked file RKAndroidTool_v1.23.rar. I would but I guess it is in chinee or something because I have all "?" instead of letters and can't use it.

    Froyo V6 - correct calibration tool

    Hi all! You missed me?

    I'm back with another custom firmware for Next3/PMP3084/Genesis

    To break it down a bit and tell you what's been done.
    I've taken an official Froyo beta1 release and added root and some essential apps
    so that you aren't bothered with installing Astro and Titanium.
    I've removed boot screens from prestigio.

    Next to be done is to fix the annoying taskbar issue and improve overall speed of the system, to add a new version of android market and to make a system little more of an lightweight.

    I'm currently uploading the update.img so till then bye!

    So, here we are! The brand new, rooted, screen calibrated Froyo just for you!

    Streamlined version of GB.2.3.7

    Here is a revised and corrected version of GB.2.3.7 for RK2818.

    It seems that some issues have disappeared.
    Like the problem of link to a PC (so called Mass Storage Screen problem)

    Streamlined version

    Be aware that Market appears only when Wifi is connected :confused:

    It's for 8.4" with bqreaders kernel.

    Let me know of the bugs

    Thanks and god bless you all!! :D

    New Froyo

    Here is Froyo v5.

    IMHO the best ROM for our loved device Yifang M901 branded as Nextbook Next3, Prestigio PMP3084B, Odys Genesis, Darwin of bqReaders (Spain), Arnova 84 of Archos (France), to mention some.

    Rockchip RK2818 absolutely an underrated chip with excellent capabilities for a cheap chip :) :
    - excellent sound, due to dedicated DSP (normal feature of Rock-Chip chips :))
    - excellent image @720P with graphic acceleration.
    - USB port OTG (Froyo takes advantage of it with USB Host function)
    - G-sensor Rockchip 3-x accelerometer
    - Rockchip manages almost all available formats in audio and video.
    - our device is NOT using TV-OUT bundled in the chip.
    For more info see here http://www.rock-chips.com/index.php?do=prod&pid=2
    Lots of capabilities for a device that cost a quarter of a premium tablet.

    About resistive screen... indeed it's a weakness of the chip... but handling it with a pointer can be very nice.
    Multitouch screens are really expensive thanks to the mercenaries of the genre Apple iShit.

    Download
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=5ZXKJEL7

    - Still problems with Explorer, must be used Google search of Launcher to use it.
    - Market still need the trick of clean the cache of Market and the data of Google Services Framework. Stopping both apps. Works better when this is done when Market is loaded in Home screen. In other cases requires several attempts.

    Enhancements:

    - Fully rooted. Can run Titanium Backup, and all root tools..
    - Small size of module.
    - I notice better speed (placebo?)

    To do:

    - implement A2SD

    Sincere thanks to donaldj83 and MajstorSpeedy for make me get in action again.

    Gingerbread 2.3.7 for RK2818... version 2.

    This time for 8.4" screen -----> rk28_84_gb7.therom.77

    This version have the posibility of fix rotation by using 4 parameters:
    sensor.accelerometer.flip_xy=0
    sensor.accelerometer.invert_x=1
    sensor.accelerometer.invert_y=0
    sensor.accelerometer.invert_z=1
    This parameters work fine for bqreaders Darwin.

    Now with a ICS launcher instead of Launcher2 of Gingerbread.
    Reason: this launcher rotates!.
    ICS = Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.0
    It's used Roboto font which is Android ICS font.
    It sport ICS wallpapers and an awesome menu which can be seen in portrait mode.
    There are two galleries: the normal one, and the new one which is really slow.
    Recovery is fully functional (For bqreaders and Master-G)

    Still is needed to load MP3 and HW video from File Manager.
    With MoBoPlayer video is seen marvellous.
    Songbird play MP3 excellent (ncluded)
    YouTube work fine as expected.
    Market work excellent, I know is the new one which is slow, but is updated automatically :( so it can't be used another.

    Problem with list of media in menus comes from module libmediaplayerservice.so.
    If somebody find such module working fine in the ROM... let us know.

    So far... no visible bugs. I love this ROM!!

    Good night and happy thanksgiving day!
