  1. Not a problem Lister. As far as flashing from windows goes, I'm afraid I have no idea. I use OS X usually, but used a Linux virtual machine in Virtualbox (running on OS X) to flash the hudl. Probably took a little over an hour to set up the virtual machine and maybe 15 mins of moving files to it in preparation. Have you changed any of the partition sizes? I'm not sure how rktools works on windows but can you flash the images seperately?
  2. I think I've got the file you're looking for, I've uploaded it to here
  3. My partner bought a Smart Ultra 6 some months ago and I'm now considering doing the same. Whilst looking through the developer options menu on hers (running 5.1.1) I noticed there's an option for "OEM Unlocking - allow the bootloader to be unlocked". Is unlocking the bootloader as straight forward as enabling this setting then unlocking the bootloader via fastboot?
  4. This is very interesting and I'd be keen to see it working, but I don't understand enough to offer any real advice! I have, however, used Debian Kit to get linux running alongside Android on the hudl; maybe comparing to this could shed some light on the problems?
  5. I'm following this and your FreakTab thread, though I currently have nothing to add or suggest
  6. how large is the chip and can you see where it's from?
  7. I think that's more relevant to the Hudl2, which uses in intel chip. The original Hudl uses an RK3188
  8. you can definitely install an adblocker once rooted
  9. there's no rom (comparable in a way to a linux distro) above 4.2.2 - I believe we're missing some of the hardware sources to be able to compile a version of 4.3 or 4.4 for it ourselves, though my understanding may be slightly wonky on that. there may be another way to acheive a restricted user type environment, what are you aiming to do?
  10. settings > apps > all > chrome scroll down a bit and you should find an option to 'clear defaults'
  11. you'll probably have more luck searching more generally for something to remote control an android device - this forum is fairly quiet and any solution that works on android 4.2 should work on the hudl :)
  12. here you go :) EDIT: unzip first - the attached file contains the boot.ogg and the bootanimation.zip Hudl_Startup.zip
  13. here's the original hudl partition map (starting address and length): ./rkflashtool-linux r 0x00002000 0x00002000 > hudl_misc.img ./rkflashtool-linux r 0x00004000 0x00004000 > hudl_kernel.img ./rkflashtool-linux r 0x00008000 0x00008000 > hudl_boot.img ./rkflashtool-linux r 0x00010000 0x00010000 > hudl_recovery.img ./rkflashtool-linux r 0x00020000 0x00020000 > hudl_backup.img ./rkflashtool-linux r 0x00040000 0x00100000 > hudl_cache.img ./rkflashtool-linux r 0x00140000 0x00002000 > hudl_kpanic.img ./rkflashtool-linux r 0x00142000 0x00200000 > hudl_system.img ./rkflashtool-linux r 0x00342000 0x00020000 > hudl_factory.img I think my first step would be to see if your partitions match these. It may be possible that Helios has changed the partition sizes - I can't say I've tried using the Helios rom. I'm afraid I'm not very familiar with windows, and as such haven't used RKbatchtool - only RKflashtool on linux. It maybe worth picking one tool and sticking with it? Though I thought they were both executing the same command line tools, just on different OS's?
  14. okay, some questions first: 1.) what computer OS are you using? 2.) have you altered the partition sizes on the hudl at all? 3.) have you tried a backup/copy of the original recovery and system? EDIT: nevermind! glad you sorted it!
  15. Indeed, sounds like you'll be fine as long as you put the original unmodified SystemUI.apk back in place before updating.
