1.Installing/Flashing the Firmwares
First of all, you can get the latest firmware from http://www.jxdofficial.com
. Simply download the A1000_20130531
file and extract somewhere.
There are 3 files of importance:
: This is the executable for installing the firmware.
: This is boot loader thingy.
: This holds the firmware files we can modify.
Here's how you install/flash a firmware. This deletes all files in the device so make sure you backup your files (photos, save game files etc.)
1.Unplug & turn off your device
which should look like this
tab is for packing so we use Basic
tab for installing. Select "Platform = Pmp8000", "Dram type = 0_HYNIX" and under Options
frame, check "Program All", "Read Verify" and "Rebuild Nand FS". For Boot code
dropdown, select the boot file at wherever you extracted.(Images_Redboot_8050_DDR_ScanDRAM_Once_20120227.img) For Resource + Binary file
dropdown, select the other firmware file. (A1000EN-UOA-BTR-YB20120406-8110C-100C-CG0307-NOFM.img)
4.Now while pressing the X button of the device, connect it to the PC. (The button may be different for some devices, I've seen somewhere Up button was used instead.) If done correctly the program should detect the device and "Dev0 - Not Connected" part turn blue like this.
5.Press the ISP
button and wait until finishes. There will be a few separate steps indicated on progress bar.
6.When you see a line like "Device:0 ==> Write resource is success. (185 s)" in the text box, the process is finished.
7.Now you can close the program and safe remove
the USB device and unplug. Press the small Reset button (labeled R) at the bottom right of the device. Then open and test the new firmware. This is how you can also install your own modified firmware packs instead of A1000EN-UOA-BTR-YB20120406-8110C-100C-CG0307-NOFM.img
