  3. Abid!
    I myself tried the Coby 7022 stock rom for multitasking but was struck in bootloop. So restored to Orginal X1 rom now using App for Multi-tasking. I'll try your rom but in the meantime have a look at
    "http://www.cobygermany.de/?p=android4-update"
    It's Android 4.0 update for 7022 but it's in german so google translate will come to rescue unless you know german.

    1. k let me know how gingerom works out for you.thanks for the link.i tried it out and got ics running on the x1.its amazing ,much smoother than the stock rom. i have also noticed that the games that used to lag on the stock rom work perfectly on this.no cam though and it occasionally reboots automatically.will try fixing the bugs.

    1. first off check if your computer can detect the device in fwdn or adb(even if the screen dosent turn on).if it gets detected then this is a similar issue to the one in the link hope it helps http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/10968-installed-wrong-firmware-stuck-on-white-screen/

      Delete
    2. if your lucky and it does get detected then just the first thing you should do is flash the original bootloader(lk.rom) back

  20. @Abid my pc does not detect my tablet pls tell me how to flash it!!

      If i take it to the service center will they resolve this problem ??
      or is my tablet a paper weight ?? :(

      Delete
    3. there is a slim chance that they will take it but If they do take it they wont take warranty into consideration.so give it a shot

    4. IS there any other solution to unbrick the tablet ???

  31. Hi

    I am looking for HCL ME X1 firmware or Rom backup or FWDN image. The device isn't booting to the Kernel and it restarting.It can enter FWDN mode or Fastboot mode but not to the recoery mode.

    My device specification http://androidfragmentation.com/database/v/dr/557741/oem/HCL%20Infosystems%20Ltd/dm/X1/carrier/Android;jsessionid=ACAF55925528D1C72D4E151F2016B215

    Anyone can help me to any of the above and I prefer the FWDN image becouse it is more powerful to flash the device.


    Best regards
