    It will also be a good clean base for custom roms. Great job! I'm going to start building one as soon as it downloads.

    Is there a way to get these to work with live view? I seem to be stuck at the opening splash screen. fastboot won't work, however I do believe liveboot is working, I just don't have a valid .img file. I'm justing looking to try to redo everything to something that works :)

    First thing you should do is drain the battery. Reset it and turn it on (even if it doesn't boot and doesn't show anything on the screen), let it rest for at least one day. That should fully drain the battery. Then connect the charger without turning it on and charge it for at least 30 mins, longer is better. Disconnect and push the reset hole to make sure the tablet is off.
    then try pushing the 7_11 recovery and flash the new rom

    How do I push the new recovery.

    What I believe is going on is that it has a bad recovery now. The last thing issued in adb was a reboot recovery, which isn't working, so it keeps trying to go into it. Will draining the battery long enough hopefully reset so it will boot into the main partition as expected?

    If not, how do I push the new rom? From live view? Live view will know that it's a recovery img, and not a main and flash the correct location?

    Yeah, I was waiting for myfishbear to release his ROM and I still have the same probs. I am going to exchange this at Biglots for another one since I still have the receipt and I'm now convinced that this one has issues.

    P.S. The firmware update from D2pad.info is for the other 09 version BTW, not the d2-711 for those who are having probs. I have yet to see a firmware update for this particular model. I'll post more results tonight. I should have tested it more thoroughly before working on it.... Live and learn!

    That is it, 911 and 711 are the same, one would just switch out the bootloader after flashing to get screen size.

    I tried flashing myfishbear's 711 d2rom to my 911, and like you suggested switched the bootloader after flashing. However, the touch screen is not responsive. Any ideas why this would happen?
    Thanks for the help.

    D II Pad BK 1.2Ghz version
    I have a newer version of the D2 Pad - Model# D II_BK - S/N: 201210Bxxxxx series. My number one goal is to get CWM installed on it and do a backup before I clobber it completely by hacking all the junk out. Number 2 is to get the Google Play store installed, if that's even feasible. It was rooted out of the box, so that's not an issue. Custom ROMS? Sure, why not, but not a huge priority to me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    EDIT:

    Oh GOD!! And now I have managed to wipe the thing. Not totally bricked... yet. It will boot all the way to the desk top, but it is in Chinese and it says the internal storage is full. I can't install anything because of this, which means I can't get into the system folder... There goes $80 down the drain.
