Hey mobileread,

I have a Likebook Alita, recently I tried upgrading to 8.1, I found I couldn't use the upgrade key but I was able to boot into "LOADER" mode with ADB using "adb reboot bootloader", but now I can't seem to get back into LOADER mode, when navigating the system it works fine except anywhere I tap on the screen will be registered as a tap somewhere entirely different, rendering it unusable. I looked in the Developer Options for OEM unlock (Because apparently fastboot is locked) and had no success. I have a stock firmware image readily available but I'm unable to flash it with the RKDevTool, it reads "Found one ADB device" even when I'm in fastboot mode, and the device is locked. Is there a way to unlock it? Thanks in advance.

The most likely person to solve this is you. I've decided to leave my Alita well alone until there's clear evidence that an update will work and that there are real advantages. So far with the Mars update all we have is is anecdotal comments that all was very straightforward and they think it's "faster" or that things went wrong. We are very much on our own with these devices.

I'm still not entirely convinced there's no way out of this outside of replacing the USB/Upgrade Key component, but lets hope it's not just wishful thinking.

Thanks, done. I managed to fix the upgrade button on the top of the device. I just need to get Alita Firmware now.

Or wait, until for Alita Android 8.1 Firmware is released.

Is there a timeframe for that? I'm messaging their page on Facebook and they're saying the "Mars TP Firmware" was flashed, does anyone have "Alita TP Firmware" or Alita Firmware images on this forum?

You are now the main man for Alita upgrades. Keep us updated please.

Here's a Likebook Alita K103 PDF sent to me by a tech support guy on their Facebook, it contains instructions detailing how to flash a default system image for the device, unfortunately as far as I'm aware it's missing what the technician calls "TP FW" (Not sure what the TP stands for), but for whatever reason that prevents me from resetting the pointer calibration. Maybe someone else will find this PDF useful anyway.

There is something wrong with the description (Pt 5). So the picture is that of Mars and not of Alita.
