How To Identify Firmware Of A Dead China Tablet PC



You can easily identify firmware version of an Android Tablet by simply navigating to settings and selecting About Phone which can be found at the bottom of the settings options. So easy, right? But what if you’re tablet is dead, unable to boot, or stuck in logo boot loop? And the only way you could fix it is to flash it with its stock / factory firmware? How can you find where to get a copy of its firmware file if you don’t even know what firmware version to find?

I had a 9 inch Royqueen German Technology PC Tablet running with Android OS which was stuck in boot logo. I did a hard reset but it didn’t fix the problem. I tried flashing it with a generic Android firmware since I couldn’t figure out its original version which made the problem worse. After flashing a wrong firmware, my Tablet is dead. It won’t turn on and all I could see is black screen. To fix it, I have to figure out its firmware version so I could start searching where I could get a copy of original firmware file.”

 

How To Identify Firmware Version Of A Dead Tablet?

  • Open the back case of the Tablet to see the motherboard and take note of its component.

On some tablet, there is a logo of the manufacturer company imprinted in the motherboard. But in my case, I haven't found any. I have figured out my manufacturer information using the details printed in my touchscreen flex. Using these information, I have figured out that my manufacturer is Maixin-China.



All the information gathered is the key to identify the firmware version.


Firmware version: AllWinner 13 (A13) MAPAN MX913 A91V02 20121005


Where can you get a copy of your original firmware file?

Visit the Manufacturer’s Website of your device. You have to know the model name and model number of your device so you could download the correct firmware version.But if you have a PC tablet made in China, identifying its firmware version is a problem. They usually are re-branded and do not have a Manufacturer website. You could not find its firmware version written on in the device.


If you are able to identify your correct firmware version, you can search from this list if it is available to download.

    1. Hi! I am more than happy to help you. I'll try to find the correct firmware for your tab. Could you send me a message containing more information regarding your tab? It is very important that we find the correct firmware because if we happen to flash a wrong firmware, it could hard brick your tablet and it'll be unusable.
