Firmware for freelander pd90 sku20650 (http://www.pandawill.com/freelander-pd90-101-inch-tablet-pc-32g-android-41-ips-screen-rk3066-bluetooth-dual-camera-p68713.html)

download here:
(http://www.pandawill.com/freelander-pd90-101-inch-tablet-pc-32g-android-41-ips-screen-rk3066-bluetooth-dual-camera-p68713.html)
www.pandawillforum.com/soft/PD90 firmware 121123.rar

Instructions:
1. When you unpack firmware you will have 2 folders and an update.img file, one with the rkbatch tool and second with the drivers. the rockchip flash tool is on Chinese when you start it. Easyest way to change it to English is to open config file and in the first chapter there is something like "lang=1" change it to "lang=2".
Now you have rk flash software in English.

2. Now switch off your tab and plug one end of the usb cable into computer (not into tablet yet).

3. Keep volume + and power key pressed and plug in usb into tablet. Computer will find new device and you should install drivers attached with the firmware.

4. After this just start RK flash tool and you will se that number "1" is highlighted, then release the keys. Flash firmware and the tablet will restart by it self after everything is over.

Hello

Thanks for the upload.

As I have this pad, I have downloaded this firmaware but I have 2 problems:
First, your files seems to bee corrupted, it say when I try to open rar file that archive is corrupted. Netherless, I extract them and try to install drivers. Then occures:
Second: driver insttal fails, Windows said Peripheral could not start (code 10).

Netherless (again) I compare with a previous version of driver I have downloader other there and see not differrence so, I try to instal those driver but same thing (code 10).

Any idea?

Thanks.

Edit: finaly I find the way. I change USB port (I connected it to port in front of computer; connected to rear works much more better. Finally I will try to root. (I'm affraid now)

Please could you say what's new in this firmware nd how to root this pad please?

CarriePW
11-27-2012, 03:21 AM
Yes ! connecting to rear can provide enough power supply.

Feanor, the manufacturer told me this is the original factory rom, Sorry
If you have no problems with your tablet, pls don't root it.

Tanks, OK, I will not root, but tell me how could I launch gameloft game that check manufacturer un build. prop ans sont d'un either if I didn't change et (search on cube h30gt ans gameloft game on google to see what I mean)

Hello again

I just load the firmware on another computer than I tyry yesterday and I confirm archive is corrupted. Could you please upload it again and provide an MD5 checksum so we could verify firmware integrity. It will be bad to brick our tablet because of a bad firmware...

Message from winrar when I open the file:


! C:\Users\Enterprise\Desktop\Outils tablette\PD90 firmware 121123.rar: Fin de l'archive incorrecte

Thanks

CarriePW
11-28-2012, 03:43 AM
Sorry for that ,
I will try to figure out what is wrong.

feanor91
11-28-2012, 06:40 AM
OK, thanks.

Did you try to flash yourself this firmware, just to be sure it works?

Under Windows 8 (I have to check under XP, I will edit the post), when connecting the pad, the peripheral stays unknown, Windows see it's name but I haven't manage to find the good driver. I didn't talk of the manipulation in your open thread, this manipulation works well (if we stop driver signing check in windows 8) and device is well seen as RK30 if I remember well, but when pad is powered on, it is seen as SXZ-PDX0-06. This is here I need drivers.

Thanks

feanor91
11-28-2012, 06:00 PM
Hello

Oups. False operation, my device is in bootlop...realy need firmware so I could flash it.

Is there a way to restore device to factory state? Button action or something like that?

CarriePW
11-29-2012, 06:19 AM
Pls check the folder "driver", it is incompatible to win8.
And feanor, I don't have the tablet by myself , so I cannot flash it. sorry.
Is there a reset hole in your tablet?

feanor91
11-29-2012, 06:38 AM
This is not the problem, I use Windows XP to works with that. The problem is the ".img" file is corrupted into archive (of course, it will not be funny else), so please could you check and made a new archive and upload it again or just tell me where I can download firmware directly, you will save my life and be my god.;)

On another thread (about PD10, PD20.. firmware), I found direct link to freelander site, but nowhere I found firmware for PD90...I will kill myself

And for your information, driver works well under Win 8, only not installable, we have to disable driver signature in advanc boot parameter to install it, after all works wel and install drivers for Seven...

11-29-2012, 03:56 PM
Sorry to be such a noob. But is there any way you can post a video on how to root this device?

feanor91
11-29-2012, 05:20 PM
no, because I bricked it :(

But see here:http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/41425-need-help-to-root-freelander-pd90/ I explain all.

bandalico
11-30-2012, 01:28 PM
no, because I bricked it :(

But see here:http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/41425-need-help-to-root-freelander-pd90/ I explain all.

but you didn't say that you brick the tablet in that post?

feanor91
11-30-2012, 01:34 PM
No, because I bricked it later by booting AFTER I have change build.prop. root didn't brick the tablet, but my stupidity does (and a lak of knowledge, because since I had this problem, I see a lot of people bricked phone or pad by changing build.prop.

By the way, you'r right I will add a warning to the tread, thanks to point me.

Do you have this pad? Because I just found that thread http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php?401-Dumping-ROM-using-ADB-guide that explain how to get img file so, if you could extract it, do it, for security reason (always have backup before doing anything dangerous).

Edit:Modification done, thanks

The image file is mising. Download size is only 10Mb

feanor91
11-30-2012, 03:57 PM
Yes, your right, and it is the problem, I think it must be around 300Mb, I wait for a new archive that have firmware in it to unbrick my pad...

bandalico
11-30-2012, 05:59 PM
It's a shame I hope you can unbrick it. I bought the PD90 but I haven't recieved yet so I was doing a research about rooting the tablet before arrives. You can try found a new firmware in this link
http://121.14.143.130:8090/AfterService/global.do?method=index
you have to use ID table I don't know if this works but it's the Freelander website so try it.

feanor91
11-30-2012, 06:25 PM
Hello

Good news is that you will be able to root as I already did.

For the link I already arrives on it, but was enable to make subscription...Me and chinese you know...And even translate by google it stays almost not understanble.

I think I am the first to buy such a tablet, I have since 1 weeks tomorrow and only today I begin to have answers.

By the way, you will see it is a wonderfull pad when it runs, of course, very fluid, screen is beautifull, go fast, interface is good, but I installed Go Launcher HD. I love this pad so I hope I will have a firmware quickly. If you find something somewhere...

If someone talking chinese (hum...reading in fact) could subscribe to the site to see if there is something, here my serial number : p101211022804334.

carriePW works hard to get a working firmware, my last intel was manufacturer will send one, but I didn't know when it could be online.

Hi feanor91, it would be great if you can do a detailed review on this device and share your good experience (besides the bricking :(..) with other whom might be interested in buying.

CarriePW
12-01-2012, 06:09 AM
So glad.
Feanor91, did you just reflash the ROM or you used the way bandalico said???
The firmware may be incomplete, I should have downloaded the firmware with Thouder.

Hi feanor91, it would be great if you can do a detailed review on this device and share your good experience (besides the bricking :(..) with other whom might be interested in buying.

It is planned, but I will have no much time for now, I will try.


So glad.
Feanor91, did you just reflash the ROM or you used the way bandalico said???
The firmware may be incomplete, I should have downloaded the firmware with Thouder.

I use bandalico way. AS I didn't have any rom to flash...The goal was to find a PD90 firmware, and Bandalico did, many thanks to him.

On your part did you manage to get the one corrupted uncorrupted? By the way, if I judge by the 6 digit in end of the name, it seems one you post, is the same tah one I get numbered 121123.

Size is 428 667 635 (rar file) MD5 checksum of .img file is 379A4ABD44513488C436B463CBFD1E40, .img file size is 651 937 032 (a big baby) and date is 23/11/2012 11h34.

Flash with RKBatchTool 1.5 on Window 8.

Thanks, I download it just to be safe.

bandalico
12-03-2012, 08:01 AM
You're welcome feanor, I founded the ftp in other forum but it was luck ;) I'm glad you can fix it. I look forward to have the mine soon and try to root it.

feanor91
12-03-2012, 08:13 AM
Yes, luck, you'r damn right. For the root, you will have no problem, as I arrive to do it, I think you could do too.

From Android 4, there is an exploit on the restore system, as I understand, the tools I found push files needed to be root in a folder on pad and launch the restore tool to writhe them in place. After that pad is rooted. Look here for more explanations: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1886460

The only thing you have to achieve on your side is to be your pad visible by ADB, after that, it is a joke to gain root.

After that, we have to look for clock work mode, and kitchen to make custom rom, but I found current rom works very well, so is it really necessary? Not sure.

feanor91
12-03-2012, 09:13 AM
CarriePW, could you please ask to manufacturer how to boot the pad into recovery please? I try a lot of operation, I think I try all button combination, but did not manage to achieve it. It will be usefull for whom whose wants to use the update.img way on sdcard to restore firmware.

By the way, I am very surprised of the lack of information given in documentation (in english, as I'm not able to read paper I have in chinese in the box) to my mind, it will be useull to have saying a CD or DVD with the pad with firmware on it, a real documentation in pdf, rkbatchtool, drivers and so on. I didn't know if other manufacturer do the same, but see, when you buy a PC, you have restore disk, why not with a pad? It is a computer like other after all. no?

If it is a price question, I'll be sure people will pay a little fee more to have suche a service.

CarriePW
12-03-2012, 09:55 AM
Ok ! I will ask him .
feanor, if your tab back to life again and you are not fimiliar with the steps, don't do it before you are clear about the operation.

feanor91
12-03-2012, 10:23 AM
Damn, you'r right, I will touch nothing be sure of that ;)

feanor91
12-06-2012, 12:14 PM
Hello

Jimmy ask me a question. He have received is pad and test multutouch capacity. Surprisly, he have only 5 points at a time. He ask me to test, and I have 5 points too. As pad is given for 10 points, could you explain the difference? We test with those application from the market:

MultiTouch Tester (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.the511plus.MultiTouchTester&hl=en) for Jimmy
and
YAMT (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rn.yamtt&feature=related_apps#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEwOSwiY29tLn JuLnlhbXR0Il0.) for me

And could you test other pad (cube, onda, whatever you have) given for 10 points multitouch? Because either those screens are not 10 points multitouch, either Freelander conect only half of what they have to connect and it will need to be corrected from manufacturer.

Jimmy
12-06-2012, 01:54 PM
Hi,

I tested with my brother's cube U30GT tablet and it's 10 points :(

feanor91
12-06-2012, 01:56 PM
OK so either it's a hard (or soft?) problem, or it is false publicity and it is not a 10 points multitouch. CarriePW, could you please ask manufacture what he think of?

CarriePW
12-07-2012, 07:32 AM
Ok , our staff will check it .

12-08-2012, 09:33 AM
Hi. Just flashed this firmware. All ok, except the thing that I unable to switch input languages. I just defined additional languages in settings but there is no button to switch languages when keyboard is pooped up.

This is very critical for me.
Thanks.

feanor91
12-08-2012, 09:40 AM
Strange, no problem for me, keyboard is in French layout.

When I clicl on parameter in lower left corner of the keyboard, I see system language ticked.

But if you means that you could't change language from keyboard space touch (where I see french, for me), then you are right, I'm not able to change language by this way.

Try to install other keyboard. On my phone, I use Swype. For me the bes keyboard either made. I didn't try to install it on tablet for now.

Else, you have a lot of jyeboard available on market.

karabas
12-12-2012, 03:18 PM
yes. this is annoying. I want to be able to switch between languages easily.

bandalico
12-13-2012, 08:15 AM
hi, any answer about the multitouch issue?

CarriePW
12-13-2012, 08:40 AM
Sorry for the late response , It's 5 point

feanor91
12-13-2012, 08:43 AM
And about restart in recovery mode?

bandalico
12-13-2012, 09:00 AM
so pandawill is lying about the product information and selling a product pretending be another thing...and the worst is the info is still wrong in the web...amazing...

feanor91
12-13-2012, 09:03 AM
so pandawill is lying about the product information and selling a product pretending be another thing...and the worst is the info is still wrong in the web...amazing...

And it is not only Pandawill but all shop on the web that give this information. The question is information came from manufacturer at the start, and so it is manufacturer that lies, or manufacturer says nothing and as other pad of that kind are 10 points, everybody assumes this one too?

bandalico
12-13-2012, 09:10 AM
ok the manufacturer maybe is the first responsable but I'm buying to pandawill so they're the responsibles about they're selling. This is tech, nobody has to assume anything.

12-13-2012, 09:11 AM

in the settings you can do a factory reset
And about restart in recovery mode?

feanor91
12-13-2012, 09:27 AM
Yes, I know that, but it is not what I asked. I asked the button manipulation to handle to boot table into recovery mode

bandalico
12-13-2012, 09:37 AM
feanor has you try ROM Manager app?

feanor91
12-13-2012, 09:45 AM
feanor has you try ROM Manager app?

No, I think it will be cool if someone was able to make Clock work mode recovery working on this pad, it is an open way to nand backup and custom rom. I found information on the web where someone has made this to work on RK3066 chip, but I'm not really hot to try that on my pad, not sure to be able to go back if I brick this time. One time is enough for me.

bandalico
12-20-2012, 10:24 AM
Hi again feanor, I read about your experience changing build.prop so it's safe to do it or not?
Thanks in advance.

feanor91
12-20-2012, 05:33 PM
Hello

I will say: try at your own risk....

And be ready to flash in case of.

By the way, I think it will be possible to track down what could be conduct to bootloop to keep trace of the log file at boot. Because, I think, now, that I would be able to access the tablet with adb during the bootlop, ands even, perhaps to try to restore my build.prop, I have backed up. But, I haven't retry, no time for that.

I think, it will be better to search to install clockwork mod to have the ability to make nand backup nd custom rom, because, I'm not sure if we wait for rom from Freelander to be serve soon...

bandalico
12-20-2012, 06:42 PM
Thanks mate for answer I'll think about it. Could you tell me if the firmware that I posted is newer than the original one?

feanor91

Hello CarriePW no news on how to boot into recovery?

CarriePW
01-03-2013, 05:37 AM
Usually it is volume and power.
I am not so sure, sorry!
Have somebody done it before ?

feanor91
01-03-2013, 06:39 AM
Hello

I know that, I try every combination with power, volume up, volume down, reset-pover, reset volume up or down and didn't manage to boot into recovery mode, so my question. To my mind, only Freelander could tell us (and of course, nothing int the toilet paper that's name itself documentation...)

bandalico
01-03-2013, 05:49 PM
Hello feanor, what are you trying to do with the dump stuff???
Please CarriePW ask to Freelander about enter into recovery becouse their website is a complete mess.
Thanks.

feanor91
01-03-2013, 05:57 PM
Hello

I have two goals:
First: make a rooted firmware as everytime we want to flash current firmware we have to root tablet again not a big deal to do but ennoying
Second: Install clock work mode recovery so we could make nand backup and some adavance stuff liko on a phone in fact

And after that, it's open road to custom rom.

Did ou read the tread I put to see my advancement?

CarriePW
01-04-2013, 05:54 AM
I asked freelander, he said volume up and power , but you said it didn't work..
I want to try , but it is out of stock now.

CarriePW
01-04-2013, 06:31 AM
Pls try LONG press the power and volume+ or volume-

feanor91
01-04-2013, 06:35 AM
I already try, but if it is long press, then, it must be very long...When I have my bricked problem I tried almost anyhing I think off, but perhaps I miss something, we could never be sure, so, if someone can try.

Volume + and power allow to enter into flashmode (connect usb when pressing 2 buttons), pressing power before volume + boot the tablet, but we could test.

bandalico
01-04-2013, 10:55 AM
Hi again, yes I read your post but I don't understand very well how that work...sry

Warning: recovery mode as intended is WITHOUT usb cable connected. Typically on a phone, to enter recovery it is (phone shut down) to maintain volume down (or up) and power, maintain volume until phone start.

Hello

As said before nobody have found the right combination and it seem Freelander did not comunicate on that point or else I didn't manage to make me understandable from CarriePW to the needs.

So, feel free to test and if you found, please report.

Confirmed, it works

But we have a very poor menu, has expected. So now, please need a genius that will be able to play with firmware to install CWM to be able to do nand backup/restore/cook rom, upgrading to android 4.2...what either we do with our phones

Firmware for freelander pd90 sku20650 (http://www.pandawill.com/freelander-pd90-101-inch-tablet-pc-32g-android-41-ips-screen-rk3066-bluetooth-dual-camera-p68713.html)

download here:
(http://www.pandawill.com/freelander-pd90-101-inch-tablet-pc-32g-android-41-ips-screen-rk3066-bluetooth-dual-camera-p68713.html)
www.pandawillforum.com/soft/PD90 firmware 121123.rar

Instructions:
1. When you unpack firmware you will have 2 folders and an update.img file, one with the rkbatch tool and second with the drivers. the rockchip flash tool is on Chinese when you start it. Easyest way to change it to English is to open config file and in the first chapter there is something like "lang=1" change it to "lang=2".
Now you have rk flash software in English.

2. Now switch off your tab and plug one end of the usb cable into computer (not into tablet yet).

3. Keep volume + and power key pressed and plug in usb into tablet. Computer will find new device and you should install drivers attached with the firmware.

4. After this just start RK flash tool and you will se that number "1" is highlighted, then release the keys. Flash firmware and the tablet will restart by it self after everything is over.

I cant change it to english, i did modified the config file to:
#选择工具语言:Selected=1(中文);Selected=2( 英文)
[Language]
Kinds=2
Selected=2
LangPath=Language\

But when i try to execute the RKBatchTool says: ERROR Loading config file failed

Anyone could help me?

My Freelander PD90 stopped working (Just used for about an hour) and wont power up, ive tried to do the button secuence to boot in recovery mode with no success.. Any ideas will be appreciated..

Thanks!

Your problem could be a wire diconected from battery or mother board, I gave taht kind of problem on another pad.

If you could not start at all, could be that.

Else I have a problem too with PD90, 1 or 2 time unable to lit on with buttons, I had to made several reset with à needle on back of the tablet and manage to restart it this way.

Hope you will have not to send back to after sales service.

Thanks a lot for your answer!

What it's supposed to happen and how should i use the reset button? Do you recommend me to do the firmware update procedure detailed in this thread?

Thanks!

If Rkbatchtool see your tablet you could, but with problem you describe, I' not sure it works.

For reset, simply pull reset several time and try to restart. Could not say more.

I tried to restore using RKBatchTool, it actually detects the tablet but throws an error. Here's what RKBatchTool says:
Loading firmware...
Loading firmware Finished.

Any ideas what could be? Thanks!

Hey !! We now know how to achieve recovery menu !
1) hold button volume+ and connect the cable power supply (maybe 7-10 sec)
and you see logo lying android !
2)hold button power and Press briefly button volume+

HI! Good News!! My Freelander PD90 has come to live! I'm REALLY HAPPY! So i will explain averithing i've experienced with my PD90.

"Prepare IDB Fail" <- ERROR on RKBatchTool when triying to restore. I WILL EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPENED TO ME LATER..

http://vondroid.com/threads/sticky-tutorial-how-to-firmware-upgrade.334/page-4

Well, i will tell you about my problem... I recieved my PD90 yesterday, i was very exited about the tablet. I used it for about an hour an then suddenly the tablet shut down and restarted, after that it got stuck on the FREELANDER boot logo so because it was taking to much time to boot i pressed the power button until the tablet shutted down. When i tried to power it again i couldn't. So here started my problem, i was upset, sad, dissapointed about my purchase. I tried to find a direct solution and found a lot of different solutions!

I will resume the steps that i followed until i got my pad back alive:

1) READ A LOT!! SEARCH, SEARCH AND SEARCH AGAIN.
2) I was trying to do the procedure explained in this post to restore the firmware in a computer with no success, the computer i was using was a Macbook Pro running Windows XP on a virtual machine (I think this was a problem) So i used another computer with the following specs: Windows 7 64bits with UAC turned OFF (Search for this if you don't know what it is).
3) Use a better CABLE than the one that comes with the tablet, i used a Samsung galaxy usb cable. (i'm not really sure if this was a problem but in the end i used the galaxy cable)
4) Once you have your tools ready this is the software you will need:

Im uploading the software to dropbox so i can share it with you. (I have downloaded the firmware from this post and its Ok. Just the RKBatchTool didn't worked for me, i couldn't change the language to english so i downloaded another RKBatchTool 1.5 English Version. If you want you can download the file from the first post of the thread and just download RKBatchTool 1.5 English Version from the links i will post)

PD90 firmware 121123.rar

When you unpack this file you will have 2 folders and an update.img file, one with the rkbatch tool(IN CHINESSE, thats why i uploaded the ENGLISH VERSION) and second with the drivers. the rockchip flash tool is on Chinese when you start it. Easyest way to change it to English is to open config file and in the first chapter there is something like "lang=1" change it to "lang=2".
Now you have rk flash software in English. (OR JUST DOWNLOADED THE VERSION I UPLOADED)

2. Now switch off your tab and plug one end of the usb cable into computer (not into tablet yet).

3. Keep volume + and power key pressed and plug in usb into tablet. Computer will find new device and you should install drivers attached with the firmware. You will have to choose the right version of the driver for your operating system. Your windows may tell you that the hardware were not installed then you will have to manually install the driver, this could be done in the Devices Administrator ( Google: "manually install driver on windows")..
When your device have been installed you can proced..

4. After this just start RK flash tool and you will se that number "1" is highlighted (Mine was BLUE), then release the keys. Use the open firmware to find the firmware file. Click on the RESTORE button and if everything its ok it will show you a lot of instructions and at the end the tablet will wake up..


After rebooting it will install everything so i will take a while..

I hope this information could help you to get your pad alive again..

I thank FEANOR91 for his help!!

Im able to answer to other users with problems with PD90 in anything i could help.. :)

Hi, glad you manage to have you'r pad work again.

Besides that, it was a strange problem you had, like if a config file was scrapped. I had that when I tried to changes things in build.prop file.

Are we expecting to see anytime soon a 4.2 update? Or is it planned an Android 5 upgrade for may?

For my part, I think you are dreaming, not sure at all freelander politic was to upgrade androïd on devices, hope I'm wrong. By the way, I found 4.1 works very well so do we really needs an upgrade?

I think we need more a real community and cooker to adapt recovery and to cook rom than waiting for upgrade from freelander
