Information and ClockworkMOD

I bought a generic tablet called TB7070 (from Orange Cool (!)) with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory. It’s a good for the price, but the Android is 4.1.1 (pretty good, but not enough).

Let’s get some information about the tablet before start the first try to port CyanogenMod.

This tablet is based on a Rockchip RK3066 chip, with an Arm A9 1.6GHz.
An lsusb do not show any information (when the tablet is booted in normal mode):

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 2207:0010

The adb devices -l doesn’t provides some more information:

List of devices attached
Y3RJHXYL3M device usb:2-1.2

But, in recovery mode, we get:
From lsusb

Bus 002 Device 005: ID 18d1:d001 Google Inc.

From adb devices -l

List of devices attached
0123456789ABCDEF recovery usb:2-1.2

The device is based on a development board (rk30sdk), as is possible to see on build.prop file:

ro.product.model=TB7070
ro.product.brand=ORANGE
ro.product.name=rk30sdk
ro.product.device=ORANGE
ro.product.board=rk30sdk
ro.product.cpu.abi=armeabi-v7a
ro.product.cpu.abi2=armeabi

The manufacturer, in there website, provides a software an the firmware to avoid brick the tablet. The software is available just for Windows (I didn’t find a way to flash it using Linux). But it works on Virtual Machines (I tried with qemu-kvm with an usb2.0 setup [TODO link to “Tip: usb 2.0 on qemu-KVM” post]). The firmware and instructions is available for download into the Orange website.

To backup and update specific partitions, is possible use Linux.
To do that, turn off the device, keep pressed the Vol- button and then plug the USB cable on the computer.
The lsusb shows:

Bus 002 Device 007: ID 2207:300a

The tool to backup and recovery on Linux is rkflashkit. Clone it and run ./waf debian to create a debian package. Install it.

Open .rkflashkit and you can see every partition and buttons to backup and restore them.

ClockworkMod

There is no port of ClockworkMod for this device. But there is a post on xda-developers with a link to the update.

There just need to download it and use rkflashkit to flash the recovery partition. To start it, just turn on the tablet with both keys of volume pressed.

I strongly recommend, after flash ClockworkMod, to install the image “Superuser by ClockworkMod” (using the ROM Manager App).

That’s it for now.
Next step is learn how to compile CyanogenMod.
