      If the 465 is allwinner based, and you know the mount point of your sdcard you can try one of the cwm-a10_6 recovery's provided on this page https://code.google.com/p/allwinner-cm9/downloads/list

          John,

          make sure to backup first the installed recovery from your device!!

          There for you have to know the partition layout of your devices NAND


          As for the mountpoints:

          adb shell
          cat system/etc/vold.fstab

          look for the line : dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/virtual/block/nandi

          if it says: nandi you can try the normal cwm_a10_6.0.1.0.zip
          if it says: nandj you can try the normal wm_a10_6.0.0.7_nandj.zip

            Awsome tnx

            is it correct both zip files are the same ?

            And believe me I make a backup they call me mr back up lolz on every system here I run a backup twice a week I did once lost 2 Tb data that never happens again.....

            On both my tablets I run often an backup an put it on my Google drive then it's save..... But tnx for the good thinking a lot just start fooling around and have no way back for not having a backup

            Great to have some more people here that know stuff pretty well !!

            A lot of people have quistion about custom roms and not many here know the aswers (including me).

              No i've made a simple copy paste mismatch for the zip file!!

              for nandj it should be: cwm_a10_6.0.0.7_nandj.zip


              Please make sure that you have maked the backup through adb shell
              for example
              if nandg is you recovery partition

              Code:
              cat /dev/block/nandg > /sdcard/dump/recovery.img

                    tnx u too

                    I first hacked the 211 then the Asus transformer (my absolute fav tablet) and I got the 465 for free to see what it was.... (gift from MYCOM)

                    If I break it I niot gonna get a new one as long they are getting all Yarvik tables out of the store.

                    But maybe I get myself later this month one of the new tablets with dualcore to see if there is any improvement. Till now it seems that those tablets will not at the prommised time in stock...

                    But hey, the 465 was 2 months late.... even I bitch a lot from the 4 series the 465 seems the best buy who need more memory as long you can use an SD card....

                    When the iPAD is here the 465 will be on the tv with an wireless mouse/keyboard.... using it with my VPN it's awsome for BBC player and Netflix and the ABC app....

                    (in holland I need to use my VPN's)

                    and with mouse and keyboard you can keep it on the charcher and still use it lolz

                    but first the Rom this weekend.

                      I started hacking with my samsung galaxy s , which is by far one of the best hacking phones
                      for the galaxy s i created for my own custom kernels and rom's from source.
                      Now i've a HTC one X, it's just stock not even rooted. Yet

                      The TAB420 was original from my wife, but she got a ipad too,
                      so i've a new hacking device for my own!

                      The TAB420 has only 512MB internal memory, that's a shame.
                      And the touchscreen is very disappointing

                      You are lucky you got the device as a gift

                      If you managed to get your recovery working, I've only just a few days left before my vacation (4 weeks) start we could try to get CM9 working on your device

                      Do you have a livesuit image of your device?

                        Don't get me wrong it was free but not a gift,,,,,

                        I do things for stores and sites and get a lot of gadgets to play with but yehh most I have to give back and like the ipad I did buy it lolz


                        I have great connections from when I did own a few sites and I do work free lance for a Dutch tv program about consumer stuff.

                        but I'm lucky in some way I can try almost all tablets even I have to borrow then but had almost all brands here for a few days so I do know about what is good and not.

                        I only have one fav brand and that is Asus just for there awsome suport. they even send me a key for my laptop after the cat did managed to remove and eat it,,,,,,

                        and for free! when you ask Yarvik when they have the update for my 465 they not even know.... and they don't even have there phonenumber in the manual.... On the Asus I have phonenumbers for the whole world... I even got a free usb dongle for the gps as long the Asus had a bug with it the bugs on the Yarvik.... they just make a few promisses on this forum and that's all.

                        they don't have to do anything but right now they loosing a few big markets as long more and more stores are lot longer selling there tablets anymore. they get tired of all the bad response and the broken tablets.

                        it's a shame with a better suport and good response from Yarvik they could have something now a lot of people have an frisbee..... but it's summer so a frisbee can be fun

                          It's all about hacking the TAB465
