    I have twrp for 8A as well, that's what I am typing this post on.

    I have also rooted 8A, but not going to release that anytime soon.

    That is freaking awesome. I will be sure to update the video description to let people know that you have the 8A working as well. And thank you again for all your hard work.

Here is a video I made showing how well put together his work was. And it's use on Ubunto Mate

    In any case, I have a more pressing issue the solution to which may be a long shot, but I decided to post it anyway just in case any of the wizards might have some idea, plus it would help others who run into the same problem in the future. I replaced a digitizer on this thing. Turns out it was a different revision than the original one. The screen still works, except in a rather large area, touches are registered away from where the finger hits the screen. To give an idea, I would have to hit an inch above an icon for the touch to register there. I checked "show touches" in "settings."

    YAMTT (Touchscreen Utility) shows no defects, which means the whole digitizer works with the hardware, if only far from precise. Obviously, the dig needs recalibration. I've been scouring the net for the last 24 hours without success in trying to find such tool, or at least the right touchscreen firmware file to reflash to see if that would make a difference. Some people would swear a capacitative dig needs no calibration. But I know differently. I owned an Asus tablet (TF300/capacitative dig) that required firmware flashing anew when the dig is replaced to work, only because the model sported different versions of the digitizer. Which is the case here.


    Any input that might help further diagnosis or a pointing in the right direction is greatly appreciated. Thanks again people.

    EDIT: Never mind. It looks like a hardware limitation. Software isn't likely to cut it.

    I have the setCPU, but I can't make the cores stay awake. I'm using the 3C Toolbar.apk to wake them up, but every time I wake the tablet I have to do it manually. If you could tell me how to do it automatically with setCPU or 3C Toolbar that it will be awesome. By the way, thanks to vampirefo for the root guide. Very useful.

    I use setCPU PAID version to under clock cores when screem turns off, and set normal clock speeds when screen turns on. It works and videos stream good wjhen all cores are awake on hbo go, it streams horrible when only one core is awake.

    I just purchased this tablet. I am trying to update the static DNS addresses so i can add my VPN but it does not allow me to save the update. Is that an issue with the encryption or needing to root the tablet?

    Only thing I am interested in right now is running Linux via USB.
    I can boot different distros already, of course some stuff don't work. So ideally I am looking for other Linux users to work on this project.
    Don't need testers, need fixers.

    Hey if you got some new stuff on this tablet I'm willing to shell a few dollars your way via paypal for your work. just saying, I like this little tablet, the only issue I have right now is that the CPU cores will not wake after the tablet goes into deep sleep. I tried using a script to turn them on
    adb root
    adb stop mpdecision
    adb shell
    echo "1" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
    echo "1" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu2/online
    echo "1" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu3/online
    But it shows CPU core frequency offline on all four using Kernel adiutor app.
    Maybe setting the governer to performance or on demand will fix this but I want to keep it on interactive.
