    Tesco Hudl, Samsung Galaxy SII
  1. One problem with the Rockchip drivers is that you must use USB2 as they will not detect the hudl for flashing on USB3. This allowed me to waste several hours until I found an obscure reference to this requirement. Connecting hudl to USB2 allowed driver to install immediately and I have had no further difficulty. I confirmed that changing hudl back to USB3 connector stopped it being detected by any of the rktools even though the correct driver was installed on Windows 7 . Hope this helps.
  2. Hudl Update installed with no problem and did not affect rooting. Only change that is obvious is 'Reset Touch Screen' option under 'Settings - Display'. Cannot tell if it has cured the non-responsive screen problem as I never had this. However, the touch screen is much more sensitive to the slightest touch and I have had a number of unintended operations occurring. I am used to making a firm contact but now any fleeting touch registers to the extent that it may be too sensitive. Still Android 4.2.2 but kernel 3.0.36+ dated 24 Apr 2014, build JDQ39.20140424.153851.
  3. Bought an Asus HD7 for my daughter one week before hudl was announced so have experience of both. The hudl has brighter screen and faster processor and would be no contest except for the layout of buttons and sockets and the cases. Asus has better layout of buttons and sockets especially for portrait mode for a righthanded user. Why is hudl portrait mode upside down? Easily fixed but then the standard case is wrong way round. Hudl USB socket location prevents charger cable being connected when using case as stand for hudl in landscape mode. Overall I prefer the hudl to the Asus but it is a close call.
  4. WiFi certainly seems to have improved as I am getting fewer dropouts. I had noticed that the Hudl failed to see WiFi signal at locations where my Galaxy SII phone had no problem connecting. Hudl still not as good as SII on WiFi but is now usable everywhere in house. Now all I need is a similar improvement in GPS performance.
  5. The Gravitybox module allows this behaviour to be changed.
  6. My hudl (rooted by Chinese app) updated to 1.3 without any problem and remained rooted after update.
  7. The good news is that my hudl is still rooted after installing the 1.3 update.
  8. . That was the driver I used but I use Windows 7 64bit and had no problem replacing the driver although I did get a message that the existing driver was the best driver.
  9. You could try using the driver from the Archos website. I used this when my hudl wasn't detected and have had no further problems.
  10. Thanks for the info. Previously tried to install AOSP Browser manually without success. The AOSP Browser Installer worked perfectly and all the Flash test pages I have tried are working as expected. Can now get rid of Firefox which has been annoying me with its frequent crashes. Dennis
  11. Pleased it worked for you. I am not sure if the reset is essential but with all my previous attempts using reboot / restart either I got the half Chinese / half English prompt returning after subsequent reboot or root was lost and couldn't be recovered without uninstalling SuperSU and running the whole rooting process from the beginning.
  12. No, everything is still there. The only side effect was that disabled app (Chrome) was re-enabled due to the reset. I can't use Chrome as I need Flash working so have switched to Firefox Dennis
  13. I had been trying to get Chainfire SuperSU to install and remain installed instead of the Chinese version since I used the method in http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2376077 on Tuesday. At long last, and several re-runs of the rooting software I seem to have succeeded. The way I finally did it was:- Root using XDA described method. Disconnect USB cable Install Chainfire SuperSU from Google Play Give SuperSU root access from Chinese superuser (click right button in dialog box) Open SuperSU and update it Close SuperSU Reset the hudl using a pin in the reset hole Restart hudl which is rooted and running SuperSU Under Settings | Apps | All, the Chinese superuser app has disappeared and only SuperSU was shown Don't understand why the pin reset was necessary rather than a reboot/restart but am delighted that it is now working and survives reboot/restarting without the Chinese app reappearing. The XDA method was the second rooting method I tried based on the hope that the hudl would behave like any current Archos tablet. Dennis
