not sure if this belongs here, but couldn't find a teclast x80 pro section


I was looking to make this tab android only and then root it
found on the internet different sources for each procedure, so decided to compile everything in one place with full credits

teclast x80 pro [root + keep android only for 25gb storage]

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[for 25gb of storage and android only]

first get the tools: https://www.mediafire.com/?qxwxz1mz47g7mkv

install PhoneFlashTool, iSocUSB-Driver-Setup-1.2.0, IntelAndroidDrvSetup1.5.0

then you need to check what firmware your tab is on, it's written on the back of the tablet

mine was on E3E9 however teclast site didn't have the firmware so I used the e3e8 instead and it works fine :D

download the firmware from http://www.teclast.com/en/firmware/

you need to get the android.rar
when it's done, unpack the android.rar
then unpack the gpt.rar

take the gpt.bin and copy-paste it in the android folder, replacing the original gpt.bin

put tablet in dnx mode, press volume +, volume - and power at the same time
connect tab to pc with usb cable

run the phone flash tool browse for the android folder and flash the android image

after it is done you have 25gb all for android :D

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[for root access]

you must have adb drivers installed for this to work

copy+paste the UPDATE-SuperSU.zip to the tablet

with the tab switched on normally and connected to pc with usb cable go to settings>developer options and check "oem unlocking" and "usb debugging"

then go to the toolbox folder and double-click 1.Unlock_Bootloader.bat
wait for it to do the work, then reboot and again go to settings>developer options and check "oem unlocking" and "usb debugging"

then double-click 2.Unlock_Verity-boot.bat, reboot and repeat oem and debug settings

then double click 3 Flash-boot.bat , reboot and repeat oem and debug settings


steps 4 and 5 from the toolbox folder didn't work for me, if it works for you after double-click all good
if it doesn't: shift+right click the toolbox folder with tab connected to pc and "open command window here"
copy and paste this in the command window:

adb reboot fastboot
"press enter"
fastboot flash recovery TWRP-X80-pro.img
"press enter"
adb reboot recovery
"press enter"

from the twrp menu, select install and browse for the UPDATE-SuperSU.zip you copy+pasted earlier

reboot and you should have root access + fully working twrp recovery :D

other stuff

this tab gets really hot when gaming by the way
one way to fix this is to get the no frills cpu control from the play store and set the max speed for the processor to
1,2 or 1,3, from 1,92, this gets the heat down to almost normal and won't burn your hand anymore like it used too :p

now I can play and read in peace

here is WalterNimoy's solution to root on E3E9
thanks for sharing buddy ~

------------------------------------------------------------------
The problem is in the boot.img. So, to root the E3E9, you mus essentially follow the tutorial above, but instead of the backup for the E3E8, download the version for the E3E9. You can do it here.

E3E9 Teclast X80 Pro : http://www.teclast.com/tools/pad/pad.php?t=p

Then after, the real solution. You must absolutely use another version of the boot.img. If you use the one in the tutorial with the E3E9, you won't have sound, touchscreen buggy, etc. So use this one instead. It's also v. 1.07. I believe it's was originally made for the X80 Power, but it work perfectly with the X80 Pro E3E9.

boot.img v. 1.07 E3E9 https://yadi.sk/d/78MARiHGtyfdG

Finally, if you have a problem when it's time to root, inthe step 4, enter the command manually. It was the solution to make it work for me.

Here you go! Your X80 Pro E3E9 should be rooted, with everything working. Let me know if it also worked for you!

Houston, we have a problem. First, thank you for your work. Unfortunately, it doesn't go well from here. I have the E3E9 version of the tablet. I also used the firmware for this tablet , and not the E3E8 as you did. The firmware have about 50 %less brightness in the E3E8 firmware than in the E3E9, and is also compiled for a slower cpu. So, after I flash the ROM, all go well. The two first steps for root access also go well. The problem begin at the third step, after I flash the boot.img. The Gsensor stop working, and the sound as well. I succeed to root, but the tablet is not really usable... Do you have any idea? I really want to root, but with these limitations, it is better not to. Thank you.

A couple of notes for anyone attempting this:
1. There's a v1.07 ROM for E3E9 which I dug up from the Chinese website (don't ask me how I did this, I tried to replicate my steps with no success XD). Uploaded the file as-is to my Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/eoo8stw1xxyrif3/
2. In my testing, after rooting, I lost audio and access to SD card. The touch screen would also occasionally stop working. I used the ROM mentioned above, and not the one that the op used, so your mileage may vary.
3. I was extremely unpleased with the performance of the stock ROM, and the phenomenon I experienced after rooting made me look of an alternative solution - which I found in a Russian forum (https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=741990&st=1640#entry55200079). A gem in the form of custom CM12.1 ROM baked for the E3E7 model. Installed it on my tablet and it worked flawlessly! The default language is Russian, but your're prompted to change it on the first installation screen.
I'm using this for a couple of hours now and everything seems to be working extremely well, with no dropped frames or choppy animations I experienced in the stock version.
I'll keep testing and report back if I find any bugs.

Edit 1:
So I noticed just a couple of drawbacks for using the CM Rom:
1. Camera is not working (however, I don't think it's a big deal given its quality anyway)
2. I made sure to backup the "Boot to Windows" apk beforehand, but it won't let me install it. If anyone could grab their apk and upload here, I could try it and report back.

in e3e8 that I flashed, everything but the camera works - the quality is [email protected] anyway so no real loss - g sensor works fine and underclocking makes the battery last a lot longer
I'm using this as a reader and some gaming with a 32gb sd card that has a tiny part of my library and some games and plays fine
this screen is perfect for reading

it looks like you found a way to root e3e9 tho ;)


I succeed to root v1.07, E3E9. Let me know if you want to know how I manage to do this.

share away :D

link to the e3e9 firmware is stating that a baidu account is needed to download some of the files, is there a way to get the files without this account?

I flashed E3E9 firmware from the yandisk above, the sound doesn't work after. I tried also the boot image from the post before, the tablet didn't boot.

I am now stuck with the device with no sound, using the E3E9 image. is there anything that can be done?
