Karbonn Smart Tab 1/2 Rom Flash Tutorial


 Karbonn smart Tab 1/2 Flash Tutorial
Android Karbonn Smart Tab

          Some time its very hard to figure it out that actually we have messed with our Android tablet and even we are not able to reach to built-in Recovery OR clockwork-recovery modereplacement of traditional recovery mode. then what to do?


How to flash Android Tablet Directly?



Don't worry be happy the solution is here.

Step by Step tutorial.
we assume that our tablet is not even having recovery console and no option. 

1) So we need to get in "firmware updating mode" for that connect tablet to PC take care tablet should in switch off mode then by pressing POWER + VOLUME DOWN button.

2) Suddenly  your PC will detect new hardware Z4770 you can insatll its driver from usb_burn_tools which i have uploaded here:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/37446115/burn_tools_3.0.16.rar
  
3) now disconnect the tablet from PC.
4)select your image and boot file with USBbootTool.exe


{only flash these files when you have no other option open if you have warranty up there its preferable to go to karbonn service center or if you are doing for experiments then its OK}

5)now connect table to PC and PRESS  POWER + VOLUME DOWN button and progress of updating firmware will automatically start when it will complete 100% it will not give you any notice but take it as update is completed.

6)Now you are back in business.

Thank YOU may this tutorial will help you.

    1. Hey there i think you are trying to connect it using "ADB INTERFACE" right.

      so for that you need.

      1)PDAnet you can get it from here
      http://junefabrics.com/android/download.php
      choose according to your OS x86 or 64bit

      2)then from DEVICE MANAGER of windows you need to remove
      Android Device/Tablet named "USB device". it will be under of "Universal Serial Bus Controller".

      3)Now run setup of PADnet it will ask you to install drivers say "yes" then it will ask for device brand at that time enter "OTHER" and go ahead.

      4)Now it will wait for device to connect Now connect Tablet remember tablet should be switched on.

      5)then window will ask for drive from that keep going it will automatically detect driver and install it for your table.

      6)Then you can check your device using "adb devices"
      it will be there.

      if you have further query fill free to ask or even if you need pictorial tutorial then i am willing to post it for you :).
