JDRead T63 - copy of boot.img ?
#1  Tulapi 12-30-2017, 04:11 PM
I ordered my JDRead T63 from banggood and received it one week ago.

It has worked only once. My mistake was maybe to install Firefox (because on my Inkbook Classic 2, which has a similar OS, it went without a problem). I didn't try to root, change ROM or anything like that.

Since then, it nevers boots. The screen don't even refresh. Recovery mode don't work, adb neither. The only sign of life is when I connect the ereader to the computer and press power+next during 10-15 seconds. It begins to be discoverable by rkflashkit. Thanks to that, I have made backups of the partitions.

The partition of boot.img seems to be corrupt or something like that. I may replace it by a new version, but every boot.img I find on this forum or elsewhere seems to be 8 MB, but my version is 16 MB. So my question is :

Has any one of you a copy of boot.img of this size ?

Many thanks in advance

I have a broken screen JDRead. Actually, the boot.img file's size is about 10 MB. It was unbelievable that installing Firefox would cause such a problem, because Firefox and Chrome work well on my Boyue t61.
Have you try to flash full firmware?
By the way, could you copy the system partition of your inkbook classic 2 to me? I have looking for it for a long time.

My apologies :*see your messages for the Inkbook.
Yes, I'd happy to test your boot.img
I have tried some firmwares with no luck (screen never changes).

I am sorry to give you a wrong information. Actually the size of boot.img is about 8 MB, but it doesn't matter。

What is your JDRead's serial number? For exampale, T63AT1612XXXXX, 1612 is production date of devices, mean it was produced in December 2016.
If it was produced before December 2016, we call it as T63-TC1.
If it was produced in/after December 2016, we call it as T63-KD1.

Download your device's firmware from here correctly:
T63-TC1: http://og471zc3p.bkt.clouddn.com/T63TC1-0418.rar
T63-KD1: http://og471zc3p.bkt.clouddn.com/T63KD1-0417.rar
The package contains firmware image and factory flash tool(RKBatchTool).

Then flash firmware image via RKBatchTool with Restore option

I thought initially it didn't work. But in fact I had no way to know that the battery was to low to enable booting (I had always the same red light since a long time). I charged it (not with my PC but with a power cable) and then… it worked !! Many thanks !
Now the only problem is that I have a system in chinese (version 1.5.0). Do you know where I can find a safe firmware in english ?
(according to my serial number, my JDRead is a T63-KD1)

No, it seems that Boyue provide a same system package to all user. There should be initial setup at first, so you can select your own language as system language.
Can you change it via Settings Interface?

No, I can't.
When I bought my T63 from banggod, the system that was installed was C67ML (like it was written in the parameters) and fully international.
Now it is a different system, chinese, with no applications. Boyue T63HDK-JD

I have that model Tulapi from banggood, i've never updated it because i dont know if it was going to be replaced with the international version of the firmware.

I've made a bakcup of the system with rockchip tool. I installed trwp so this image contains it. Perhaps it helps you.

It's also rooted and replaced shutdown image and standby...

That is old version of stock ROM, provided by Boyue.
