but the one (kingrston 16Gb) as gift the taclast shipped by the seller, was working out of the box
so i end up with only 16Gb for now, sine i can't use 64Gb (sad i have fews in stock ...)
but you can still use some by teawking SD drivers under W10,
some sd card repported working after that ... but not on android, harder to tweak android sd driver/kernel ....
i will receive soon the 128Gb kingston i will see soon

Just an afterthought, have you tried formatting one of your 64GB cards to Ext 3/4 to see if Android will see it, mine is fine with Fat32 but I had to format to that because card came as exFat, I tried NTFS on one to check if it would work in Windows but made no difference. Great to see you are getting close on the custom Rom. I have not rooted yet, no real need and an app I use checks for rooting so rather than get in to root cloaking I am pretty happy with stock so far.

I know you say without keyboard but I have the Teclast case and keyboard combo I got from Gearbest and I am really impressed with it. I was expecting typical Chinese "pleather' but it is a textured material, looks really good and seems very durable and the inside is lightly flocked. Tablet clicks in to a plastic hard shell. Keyboard has a metal bottom and attaches magnetically to the case so easily removable without clips etc. and can be positioned anywhere. Keyboard forms the front stop when case is used as a stand so fully adjustable. Tablet folds up excellent in case when keyboard removed and is really well protected. Keyboard has to be packed separately to take it along but not a problem. All cut-outs are perfect but volume and power buttons need a fingernail push, no room for a finger tip but that is good travel safety. Keyboard is great too but lags a little before wake up from sleep. In short I think it is great.

How to install :

if you never installed the Intel driver and flashtools
look at intel driver folder and install PhoneFlashTool_5.3.2.0_win32.exe
enable usb debug !
This will update your system nothing is deleted and W10 untouched

EASY METHOD using intel PHONE FLASH TOOLS :

start intel PHONE FLASH TOOLS
you should see your tablet connected
then open flash.json
be sure that configuration: option is update so nothing will be deleted android peronal dans and w10 untouched
if you choice restore or erase then erase all the tablet then flash fresh custom android and no w10

so configuration on update then start flash


ADVANCED METHOD install via Cmd promt command in 2mn top :
extract the rom
on rom folder hold shift + right clic on free aera and open cmd shell option (hold down the Shift key and right-click on that folder. The context menu will contain an entry, ‘Open command window here.”)
reboot to recovery type :

adb reboot bootloader

now flash boot.img and system.img only (android data and win10 untouched) type :

fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot reboot

then wise to clear cache and dalvik

adb rm -r /data/dalvik-cache
enjoy

-On linux:
adb reboot bootloader
-After reboot:
sudo fastboot flash boot boot.img
sudo fastboot flash system system.img
sudo fastboot reboot

It was fast and easy, just needed to restore my backuped Nova settings, everything looks fine.

Hardware information, still not working for me dunno why. Do you have A5C6 or A5C8? Mine is A5C6 and it can be a bios problem.

The only one avaliable from Teclast.

The problem happend when i disabled USB Debug. So i could not access Recovery. Even Update from Intel Phone Flash Tool did not work, so i used recue. Now i dont have Windows 10 or my Android stuff. :/ Now i have to do everything from the start on both OS.
Pro Tip for people flashing: dont disable USB Debug.
