Greetings

 

 

 

Tablet has karked it, and is now displaying a Dead Robot with a warning sign on carcass saying - "No Command"

 

 

 

I have done the below with no effect whatsoever

 

I have

 

 

 

--rebooted

 

--Removed SDCard

 

--Mashed the ON and Volume Up button together to enter recovery mode?

 

----In Recovery Mode I have

 

-----Cleared Cache

 

-----Factory Reset the piece of crap.

 

 

 

And it still shows the Android Carcass

 

 

 

The Tablet is a Unipad UDP038, and was running some version og Android 4.x, 

 

Apparently it just happened when it was turned on one day and came up with the dead robot

 

 

 

Any further suggestions would be appreciated, its the kids tablet and is pretty hopeless but don't want to buy another at the moment

 

Note it is unlikely the machine was trying to update as its a budget tablet and has probably never had an update released , (sorry but half the people complaining about this prob were doing upgrades)

 

Cheers

I've heard of this sort of thing happening when something breaks during an update of some sort. Not necessarily the OS but perhaps Play Store or similar. From what I understand the OS loses the super user permissions necessary to get going and for whatever reason, the steps you've already taken don't work. My suggestion would be to download the right OS for your machine to SD card, boot into recovery mode and do an install from the card.

Ok the model should be

 

 Unipad UDP03b

 

I wouldn't even know where to begin to find the os for my tablet, I am assuming they are all different depending on the supplier/manufacturer and I can only find a Turkish reseller with a dire site where the links don't work.

According to this website, your tablet uses a Rockchip 3026 chipset. Have a read through this Rockchip page - it may be what you're after.

Well, with it being school holidays and wet I went to see if this could be salvaged 

 

Pulled it out of the drawer and realised it was now a two piece tablet

 

Who knew budget tablets had the same battery features as the more expensive ones
