Apologies, I just fixed a typo on the link. :)

I have a couple of other 7008 related files coming up soon which will help anyone who wants to have a play with their own ROM or tweaks.

Can I use this PhoenixCard utility to flash the 10312 ROM? Frank from getsatisfaction sent me here but said he wasn't sure if you could. Obviously with the 10312 ROM not the one from this thread!

Hi,

I have a Gemini Devices 7008 Tablet that freezes on bootup.

I came across this forum and read that this may solve the situation and attempted the suggestion above,

however on running PhoenixCard and selecting Burn on a 8GB microSD card

I get a "Card Preprocess Failed! 228" mesage popup.

Thinking an 8GB card might not be big enough,

I attempted the same process again on a 32GB microSD card

and get a similar "Card Preprocess Failed! 497" mesage popup.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong ?

What size microSD card do i need ?

Please excuse my ignorance, I am a Newbie to this.

Many thanks.

Hi Cliff,

A card less than 4GB should work better. I think the tool has problem with the higher capacity sd cards.

Hi Guys,

I re-ran the PhoenixCard utility with a 1G microSD card and it worked brilliantly.

Problem now solved and I now have a working Gemini Tablet again.

Many thanks.
