How can I roll back a ROM


Jul 10, 2013
I ordered a cheap tablet via Aliexpress, which has an ATM7013 processor and Q8 ROM. When I got it, the HDMI interface and some apps weren't working and I was advised to upgrade the ROM using this link. After what appeared to be a successful upgrade, the touch screen is no longer working alhough I can attach a mouse and navigate the system with that. I tried the following ROMs, but no luck. In fact, it seems like its stuck on the ROM that I initially upgraded it to; e.g. the opening and logon screen continue to look exactly the same. I searched the Internet and there are a number of threads and Youtube videos of people with the same problem. Some have luck with upgrading or rolling back the ROM, others not.

Are there other ROMs that I can try, or another way to apply it?

Specs of the tablet:

7 inch android 4.0 ATM7013 1.0G 512MB 4GB 1080P WIFI Camera Capacitive Q88 upgrade HDMI tablet pc
CPU = Cotrex-A8 1Ghz-1.5Ghz 9 (according to manual)
ROM = Nand Flash (according to manual)
Following information I got from the device information but may reflect the ROM that I updated to?
Model number = gs701b
Android version = 4.0.3
Kernel version = 3.0.8 actions@actions-HP-Compaq-Pro-6300-MT #5 B
uild number = eng.actions.20121220.213129.wineluo

Method used for upgrading the ROM

2.put tf card in tablet pc,Plug in the power
3.Long press the "volume +" key,at the same time,press power key,wait tablet pc power on.
