      2) A tip for those in 2018 running Windows 10 x64 - the RockUSBDrivers will not 'just work'.

      To get them to work, I did the following to install the RockUSBDrivers and after that the process works as described at the start of the thread:

      a) Run the .reg file from variant 1 of http://chinagadgetsreviews.blogspot....p-rockusb.html
      N.B. I wouldn't follow Variant 2 if I were you - some people also experienced OS crashes with Variant 2.

      Here are the contents of the .reg if you want to check it or make your own (or if the download links disappear):

      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\220700000222]
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\220700060222]
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\220700100222]
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\2207292C0100]
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\2207300A0100]
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\2207300B0100]
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\2207310B0100]

      b) Run the Rockchip Driver Assistant v4.4 (Download available from

      Now do the volume up + reset and you should find the device pop up as a rockchip device within device manager.

      Congrats, you can now proceed to flash your device.

      Hope that helps!
      Which ROM did you flash?

                      - So I found the ROM (The Wayback Machine has an archive of the link in the first post).
                      - I got the RockUSB driver installed correctly on my Win10 box - I see the device (Rockusb device) in device manager and RKAndriodTool.exe correctly says "Found RKAndroid Loader Rock Usb" at the bottom of the main window.

                      But when I hit "Flash ROM" i get errors and the flash fails. This is the contents of the log file:

                      Any clues as to where I'm going wrong?

                      This is a Hudl 1 that has been recently factory reset, so can't get past the initial install ....

                      Model: Hud; HT7S3
                      Android Version: 4.2.2
                      Kernel Version: 3.0.36+
                      Build number: JDQ39 20140424.153851



                        For those simply trying to revive an old Hudl 1 and get past the 'can't connect to internet' problem, I've written up a way to do this without needing to root or flash the device. The info is here:

                        On my travels to get that far I've collected a lot of the old ROMs and other info. When I get time I'll sort and re-host it all, but in the meantime you can try to PM me and I'll see if I've got what you need.

                        [Oh, and to close my previous post, it turned out that a new USB port was what I needed to be able to flash the device successfully - it seems that the old one was damaged enough to fail the flash, but not enough that the device wouldn't be recognised].
