    Thanks Rob. Have found it ok. I dug out my (rooted) ancient Hudl1 during lockdown (for something to do), It is still working ok with the original rom, but I wanted to remove all the Tescco cr*p, and update it if possible. I seemed to remember, (in the distant past), that the Helios rom removed all Tesco stuff, and gave you a `clean` system. Have read some of the stuff people have written about this to save myself some hard work, (why re-invent the wheel?).
    I knew better than to reset the Hudl, as Tesco have removed the server, so setup will never complete. I see that some people have removed the Tesco stuff by various means.
    Again thanks for the info, and am currently looking at your page for more guidance, and looking at your rom version. I really need to gen up on Linux more.......

If not, anyone know how to get KitKat on the Hudl 1?
    Thanks guys.

    The link from the first post in this thread is archived on the wayback machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20150405...ios_rom_1_0.7z

    If that doesn't work for you then PM me and I can share it. Depending what you want it for it might not work, as it suffers from the same problem that the stock Hudl firmware has - i.e. that you can't (easily) get out of the setup wizard. If you have that problem then there are a couple of options (The second of which is a more modern, but not ROOTed custom ROM) that I've documented here: https://rob.themayfamily.me.uk/hudl

    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: https://rob.themayfamily.me.uk/hudl

    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].

    OK.

    - 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 ....

    Android Version: 4.2.2
    Kernel Version: 3.0.36+
    Build number: JDQ39 20140424.153851

    Thanks,
    Rob.

    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]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\220700060222]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\220700100222]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\2207292C0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\2207300A0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\2207300B0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\usbflags\2207310B0100]
    "SkipBOSDescriptorQuery"=hex:01,00,00,00

    b) Run the Rockchip Driver Assistant v4.4 (Download available from https://androidmtk.com/download-rock...iver-assistant)

    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?
