Hi. I guess before I tell you guys the problem/s on my newly bought but already comatosed tablet, the specifications are as follows:
Operating System : Android 4.0 ICS
Kernel : 3.0.8
Build Number: Ver. 1.2.0
It's an Eken TO1A WM 8850 7" Tablet with the camera on the upper right corner. The box is different from that of an eken box but my searches within Mr.Google tells me that it is what I assume it to be.
So.. I bought the tablet on ebay philippines; it seems promising when I received it but on the second day it suddenly hang in the loading screen (the one with the robot becoming a sandwich), I tried to contact to the seller but he didn't even gave me a reply. I turned it off and on but nothing happens. I fully charged it and after the third reset it suddenly worked fine until my sister downloaded instagram, kept it open along with facebook and twitter while editing a photo. The tablet freezes and shows a black screen. I again tried to do what I did during the first time it froze but nothing happens.
I eventually came upon forums that resets/ reboot the tablet by upgrading the firmware. First was the live suit thingy, upgrading it thru the PC by connecting it via the USB Port. Unfortunely, the USB device was not recognized, when the first time I plugged it the PC recognized it! This is the first thing that I don't understand. I think I should have ticked the USB debug when it prompted me the first time. I cannot do that anymore because the second problem is that the screen blackens right after showing the ICS robot after the share logo. It does not follow the robot becoming a sandwich anymore. It just blackens.
My last resort is the SD card. I formatted it with a file system of fat 32 as many in the forums said. I downloaded and tried almost all firmwares available and applicable to WM 8850/ Eken TO1A but when I insert the SD card and turn on the tablet nothing happens just the share logo and robot and again, it the screens blackens. I also tried the On button while pressing the volume+ a lot of times. The boot robot shows but no system recovery or something, after that and yet again,the share logo and the robot and a black screen..
As of now, I am yet again formatting my SD card with the non-quick format option.
I am about to bump my head on the wall with terrible headache this gave me. Please help...
I'm sorry. I only notice it now that this was posted in the wrong thread. Sorry.
