I have a cheap Chinese tablet I bought years ago. It goes under the 'Blueing' brand and gives the model as IT7008. OS version is 4.1.1. 


I have played with this a few times but otherwise never used it. All it does is collect dust on a shelf. It has no value to me and I don't care if it gets bricked. As an experiment I would like to try to upgrade it to a more useful version but it is hard to find any information about it, and I cannot find any custom ROM that is specifically made for it. 


If I search for a ROM based on the model number IT7008 (there are some), would this work or do I need something else? I know there are other brands that would work for this, I just don't know which ones. Can anyone help?

Generally you need a ROM made for that exact make and model. With a cheap off brand it's not likely you'll find one.

quick search suggests a custom ROM for that might be a little hard to come by without going to web sites that im not willing to!

You need to make very sure it's the same exact model you have. Which can sometimes be hard with these cheap chinese tablets. As stated above the only roms I could see are from sites I personally wouldn't use.




As a general rule if you can't find it on xda probably not worth the risk.

Not sure what the risk would be. I don't care about the tablet and it wouldn't be a suitable platform to serve as a spambot. I am prepared to risk it against the possibility of making it useful for something.


Edit: Since it is a cheap knock-off, is it not likely to be cloned from a known brand? As in, might there not be a ROM on XDA that would work if I could just figure out which one?
