    [GUIDE] Updating the Cube U30GT

    Firmware Update Guide for the Cube U30GT


    1. Requirements:


    • [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    • [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    • Windows PC

    • USB Cable


    2. Initial setup


    • Extract the Batch Tool (RBT in the following) package. It includes the needed drivers too!
    • Extract the downloaded firmware image
    • Run RBT, and browse the image file in
    • If everything done right, you should see some info printed in the fields, like the current version of the firmware, Android, the board (RK30), etc


    3. Installing device drivers


    • Shut down your U30GT
    • Press any of the volume keys, then press the power button
    • Holding the two buttons, plug the USB into your tablet
    • As Windows notices the new device, release the two buttons
    • When asked for drivers, browse to the extracted RBT directory, select the directory "Drivers", and let Windows install the matching ones
    • When finished, you should see one of the fields in RBT turn green from grey


    4. Installing the new firmware


    • After plugging in the tablet, and the green field pops up on the bottom, press the "Upgrade" button
    • You should see the green field turning to orange wall of text, telling every part being flashed
    • If everything done right, you should see a message like this:


    **********Upgrade Done Success<%d> Fail<%d> Time<%d>ms**********
    Of course the %d parts replaced with numbers.


    • If it finished without a problem, the tablet should boot up immediately. If not, just press the power button, and wait until it boots.





    WARNING!
    Nor Cube, neither me take responsibility of you updating your device with the Rockchip Batch Tool. If possible, always use the built-in update feature! It is a lot safer and easier!

    Re: [GUIDE] Updating the Cube U30GT

    Hey fonix and any FMA followers,

    Well I tried this on 2 seperate computers and each time it was giving me a driver error so I couldn't install any firmware this way. But I did find a new way to do it. Here it is step by step instructions. I nor FMA are responsible if your brick your tablet or break it in anyway while trying to install this. This is install at your own risk!

    Installing Firmware Using Recovery system 4.0

    1) Make sure your tablet is fully charged
    2) Download whatever firmware you want and save it to your desktop.
    3) Extract the file- I use 7-zip file manager
    4) You will need to copy this to your desktop and rename it update
    5) you will need to save this to an sd card
    6) put sd card in tablet
    7)press and hold the volume up button and power button until you see the logo and let go of both buttons
    8) You then will see an android guy with a red ! press and hold the volume up and power and another screen comes up with reboot system now, when you see these you let go. It should happen right away after you do power up and volume
    9) Use the volume down button to select update rkimage from/sdcard then click the power button to select it.
    10) Then use the volume down button down to wipe data/factory reset click power button to select it. Use volume button to go down to yes- delete all user date click power button to select it
    11) reboot system now- click power button to select it

    Poof you just installed the firmware to your tablet. I think this is an awesome discovery! Sweet. Now time to play with prox's firmware! Will give updates later..

    Wow that's a good find! Sounds a bit like clockwork mod recovery built in!

    It's not clockworkmod, it's the stock Android recovery with a script. Even the Rockchip update service uses the same way to flash the device without RK Batch tool.
    I do all my releases in my free time, so please consider donating a few bucks :)

    Re: [GUIDE] Updating the Cube U30GT

    Sorry for the noob question, can I install the custom ROM without rooting the device?
    Once the evolution ROM is installed, does that mean the tablet is now rooted?
    Thanks.

    Yes you can install without rooting. Your device will then be rooted after install.

    Re: [GUIDE] Updating the Cube U30GT

    Hi there,

    Took a few attempts and powering on and getting the device recognised in windows.

    But once recognised, drivers installed, the firmware upgrade worked a treat! (Model H tablet now running Evolution Prime) :D

    Many thanks,

    J.

    Re: [GUIDE] Updating the Cube U30GT

    Guys, this is driving me nuts! Why can't I upgrade to evo prime?
    I've got the H version 1.02 and I;ve tried everything? Tried the drivers on windows on 3 separate computers 7-64, 7-32 and XP and none of them gave me the green light to flash?
    Tried the other way by using the built in flasher. Copied the evo prime .img file to an sdcard, renamed it to update.img (even tried without the .ext) and it said cannot find or incompatible file? I've got the poos bad!@

    Is it something simple I'm not doing?
    cheers.

    all fixed..... I just swapped to another usb cable...
