Kitkat Update for HP10 1901 tablet

Is there a Kitka update available for HP10 1901 tablet?

 

The existing version is Jellybean and I am facing a problem with this version. Once the device is encrypted the 3G SIM slot is not detected anymore. Also most of the applications stopped working after encryption. So I am looking for a Kitkat update to resolve this issue.

Hey, can I get a back-up copy of your Tablet's firmware by uploading to file sharing website like 4shared.com (and the download link to my email)? my tablet is stuck in bootloop.. I need the firmware (stock ROM) to fix the issue. Many thanks in advance...))

Hello @Prasad_Elumalai

 

Did you get the stock firmware for HP 10 1901 ?

I am also stuck in the bootloop... No update or Stock firmware from HP Support is available Smiley Sad

Re: Kitkat Update for HP10 1901 tablet

when i asked for a firmware download link they gave me one telling that it the only link they have for our tablet model. i downloaded and tried to install but the installation aborted.. i told HP about the failed installation and they told that possibly my motherboard would be at fault.. And they told me to contact the nearest service centre.. anyways hope thats not your case.. i ll share the download link.. its abt 450 MB.. please try installing and DEFINITELY REPLY TO ME whether u have succeeded.. i await ur reply..

download link:

Re: Kitkat Update for HP10 1901 tablet

I too received the same link from HP support.

 

This is a firmware for HP 10 2101u model.

This one fails during the verfication and does not work.

Re: Kitkat Update for HP10 1901 tablet

After two weeks of chat with them, I got the link.. but didnt know that it was for another model.. probably we should again bring this issue to their notice..!!
I m going to rekindle this issue.. Some thing must be done abt this..!!
what do u say..??

Or perhaps if u find someone who uses the same tablet lets ask them to take a Firmware backup and send us a download link.. I dont have anyone nearby using this tablet model..
what shall we do further..??
Please reply..

Re: Kitkat Update for HP10 1901 tablet

As for as I know, it can't be done without rooting.

 

Yesterday, I got the Android source code for our HP 10 1901 tablet from HP. If we learn how to compile that source code, we can bring our tablet back to life.

 

Source code link: https://h30670.www3.hp.com/opensource/product.jsp?cat=1070&fam=Tablet+PCs&prd=HP10-OSP

 

Currently I m working on how to compile the source code and convert it to STOCK ROM

Re: Kitkat Update for HP10 1901 tablet

Its been two days since i started work.. abt 20% of work over.. hope the compiling process will be complete in 2- 3 weeks.. Then need to convert it into a working update.zip file.. Too challenging..! Wish me Good Luck.. Pray no errors come in this process..
