Good to see some peeps getting it working

 

For the life of me I cant get working in 64bit Windows 8.1 - Even tried restoring to windows 8 but the rock drivers just wont go on

 

So tried various forms of virtual machines and an old pc from the shed (that was a noo go anyway) but I am not having much joy at all

 

So going to take the thing into work and try on an old win 2000 server!!!!

I wonder if the virtual machines are being scuppered by windows 8.1's lack of drivers - if the host system can't see the device then maybe the virtual one can't either? I don't have a windows computer to test the theory on though.

 

Hopefully your server will solve the problem!

I may have asked this before, in which case I apologise, but are you using the original hudl cable?

Im not sure but have tried another cable too

 

Well went on sisters laptop win 7 64bit and again just wont install - I did a screencast - will try and add on here when I get 5mins (need to take audio off it!)

 

Again picks up android and installs the ADB driver but rktools finds nothing at all - Ive never been able to install any drivers from rockchip

 

Will put up video link later

if you navigate to the rockusbdriver folder in the file explorer are there any drivers in there? Have you tried re-downloading the zip file? It could be that the version you downloaded didn't download properly?

 

EDIT: it's not something like trying to install the drivers without admin rights? I'm not that competent with windows, so don't know if this could cause it

Thanks - tried again yesterday with official cable/ re-downloading drivers and the same thing happens - Its beaten me - I think I will try and return it

 

Just to make sure though when in bootloader I get the tesco hudl star screen.....no sound and then a charging icon when plugged into laptop and then screen goes blank basically

 

I assume this is bootloader mode? It does show up in device manager (just cant install stil)

nope, that's your issue there! Literally nothing shows on the screen when in bootloader mode - if the star or charging symbol show then it's not in bootloader mode
