Thanks rhg135! Trying this now - running a CWM Backup - so far so good.

This allowed me to copy the dRom-0.0.6.1.zip file to the sdcard. Now I am installing the dRom file. I'll report back in a while on that.

I got TWRP built with all mounts working, but no touchscreen. I'll fix that and then upload it.

Huh! The D2-721 is new- what are its specs? I see it's got Jelly Bean (4.1.1) vs ICS (4.0) on the D2-711 and DII-pad. Does it have 512MB DDR? How much internal storage?

Hey everyone I just got a d2pad d201209Bxxxxx and I'm have some huge difficulties and would really appreciate any help. I have cwr recovery installed and I tried to install dRom from my 2 different sd cards (sd and sdhc). Unfortunately, neither would install and I got an error (abort) when selecting the dRom zip file from my sd cards. I tried to do a reset from cwr but when I booted up i didn't have wifi access. I read on d2pad.info that the RESET button on the device being held down can help fix issues like wifi problems so I pressed it after getting "Obtaining IP address" over and over in wifi settings. I also tried to install the firmware from d2pad.info for d201209Bxxxxx but the "LiveSuite" software doesn't work when I try to hold Vol+ and tap power 10 times. Any help would be greatly appreciated, since right now everything works from factory reset except WiFi.

I also have the older DII d201209B tablet. I've been able to install both the CWM files in this thread and the Livesuite "factory ROM" from D2pad.info. The first time I tried the D2pad.info instructions, they didn't work. I read the instructions again and noticed the small **Note2 at the bottom of page 2. Once I followed those instructions, the factory ROM installed OK.

Yeah i've tried live suit to no evail my problem is the device is no longer rooted i can not instapp TWRP or re-try CWM does anyone know how i can Root this device? I tried SuperSU and Superuser apps installed via USB (i have no WiFi!) Any help would be great, seems like i am pretty screwed unless i can get root but i don't know how.
/system/bin/sh: /data/local/tmp/install-recovery.sh: cannot execute - Permission
126|@android:/ # su
sh: /system/etc/mkshrc: id: not found
I'm stuck... no root access, seems like all the root tools are missing, can't run superSU, superuser, busybox, etc etc...i got a feeling thats why my WiFi isn't working either, because there is no root / and no "toolbox" it seems. Probably this is the reason the LiveSuit software wont automatically detect my device and start flashing it? I don't know, so stuck and confused, been working on this non stop for days but thinking i have to send it back and get a replacement if that's even possible.
Edit: I've tried a lot, recovery wont install from SD card says E: cant find /sdcard or something then it says (Bad). Also, I tried to sideload but adb returns this error after it gets to 100%: * failed to write data 'protocol fault (no status)' *

Hello, I am trying to root my D2 Pad 912 with S/N: D201301BKxxxxx. I have been searching for a way to put CW Recovery on it. I understand that this is a fairly new tablet so if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Also this tablet's touch screen keeps being unresponsive whenever it is turned off and turned back on. I have had to use the reset button almost everytime to get it operational again or haveing to turn it on and off at least 3-4 times before it responds. Thanks.

Ok, so recently I bought a d2-912 and a d2-721, at 1st it was the 912, I liked it overall. but after some research, I see the 721 model had 1gb of ram and a 1.2ghz rockchip 2928 processor. Compared to the 912 models 512mb of ram, and a 1ghz allwinner processor. Im not sure, but I believe I read somewhere that the allwinner was a cortex A8. According to (D2Pad D2-912-BK vs D2Pad D2-721-BK Review » Tablet) Im not sure if thats Correct or Not, However, Bestbuy says the D2-912 has a Arm Cortex A8 (D2 Pad Tablet with 4GB Memory D2-912_BK - Best Buy) Are these chips made by the same company, As allwinner and ARM, I cant find anything about it, or perhaps im looking in the wrong places, Anyway, I already installed cw recovery on the d2-912, but havent gained successful root, yet. I did this before I decided to buy the D2-721, Then I bought it, but when I got home I was like what the Hack, lol. Where are the vol -/+ to get into cw recovery when installed. So I guess I would have to do this through adb, Or can I go the TWRP route, without having to use ADB. Ive rooted, flashed, used cw recov, and roms on plenty of devices, so I would say Im savy enough to work with the D2 pads, Just need a little help. Im gonna be returning 1 of these d2 pads just as soon as I decide which one is worth keeping. There both running JB 4.1.1 the (D2-721 / D201301025260) (D2-912 / D201301BK12027) Plz weigh in, and tell me which u would prefer, and Why? Yes, It matters to me, LOL...

I have a d2pad d2-711 on which ti ried to install the drom. I had used vampirefo. cwm recovery it states on the bottom vampirefos cwm recovery, now the problem is that it gives a error and does not install any of the zip files. I have tried via many microsd cards and downloading different files but the result is the same. I had erased system folder for the preparation to install the new rom so I cant boot back. I have already tried livesuit but it fails to recognize the device. I have followed all the instructions but still livesuit fails to recognize the device. I can not get access to adb shell so i can not try any other cwm recovery.
