In my opinion you have a firmware problem. It might be corrupted during the previous upgrade. You need to have the EPROM be re-flashed from the manufacturer, so as the new firmware will load normally. I think this is the only way you can resolve this.

Rca tablet how do i get out of fastboot mode


You will be stuck in fastboot if you have failed to flash an img file. You will have to boot a boot.img file using fastboot then download the last update to get your tablet back to normal.
Download the following file onto your computer...
K1_A301_03_03_110829_US.zip
Then unzip on the computer. You will see a file named "boot.img". Make sure your tablet is connected to the computer and you have the fastboot binary. Then run the following command in the directory you just unzipped the file
fastboot boot boot.img
This will allow you to boot up your tablet but the bootloader will STILL be stuck in fastboot. Therefore you will have to update your system. Download the same file above into the Download directory of your tablet. Rename it to update.zip. Dowload the following XML file...
K1_A301_03_03_110829_US.xml
and rename it to update.xml (NOTE: the system file manager won't let you change the extension so just rename to "update". Power off the tablet. Then hold down the Volume + key and hold down power button until it comes on. That will boot the system into recovery and install the update. In a few minutes you will be restored and your tablet will work normally. NOTE: YOU MAY LOSE YOUR DATA and may have to reinstall your apps.
If your boot partition isn't a mess like mine was, you may be able to just flash the system partition from the above zip file by using...
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot reboot
The key is that a fastboot flash must be successful in order for your device to boot normally.

On my pendo pad THE process android.process.acore has stopped working


Hi you will probaslly have to flash the pendo pad, its not too hard to do here are my instructions, - unfortunatly a pendo pad does not have a recovery menu to access on device boot

note - this solution also unlock the pendo pad and restores it to factory settings even if it wont boot the android os



First download you pendo pad firmware from here

http://shop.pendo.com.au/index.php/su...

I used the generic firmware 1 download and it worked fine for the TPC7SlV
Then Extract the . img file to you computer

Then you will need the firmware update too called rktools found here

http://download1942.mediafire.com/le9...

extract the zip file to your computer


Now your ready to flash the firmware

1. Power off your tablet with the switch
2. Turn the power switch Back to the on Position
3. Press & hold Side Button with the home picture also called the back/esc key
4. While holding, connect PC and tablet with USB cable (if tablet boot normally, try again)
5. Install the driver for your computer included in the RKtools Folder
6. Tablet should be recognized as "RK281X Device" in Windows
7. Start RKAndroidBatchUpgrade from rktools folder
8. In the bottom of the batch RKAndroidBatchUpgrade programme there should be a green light in the device upgrade area. * if there is no light in the upgrade area and all the numbers are grey then repeat the previous steps
9. Under the setting heading click and select the image file you downloaded from pendo ( will be a .img file if its a .zip file you need to extract it)
10.Click the upgrade button
11. wait till operation is completed

BAM Your pendo is password free, i hope i have created the best and easiest way to do this

***Please note if your wireless or Mobile network do not turn on then you have chosen one of the wrong firmware types from the pendo download site !!! the wireless and mobile network hardware are the only distinguishing features between the firmwares apparently******

2. Choose Complete Recovery - Next
3. Choose the drive micro SD - Next
4. Save the data to the hard disk (max. 1GB)
5. Because of your micro SD 2GB, repeat the process of recovery (repeat step 2, 3, 4)
After all data is secure, do the process repair micro SD

Step Two:
The first alternative - use the software HP Drive Key Boot Utility
Using the HP Drive Key Boot Utility, the first way
1. Download and install the software HP Drive Key Boot Utility
2. Then, double click the file cp006049.exe
3. If you are using Win XP, double click the file cp006049.exe - select Install.

3. If you are using Win Vista or Seven, the location of the file in the folder where you extract the files cp006049.exe. After the file is found, press Next
4. This process, will take a very long time, so you wait. This way you do for a capacity of 2GB. This involves when, the first way did not work. If the process runs smoothly, the chances of success, but if the process is running very slow, the possibility of failure and immediately stop the process. If you are unsure, or afraid to make mistakes, you should not do it this way.
5. After the process is complete, remove the micro SD card from the USB port, then insert it again.
6. Quick format micro SD (FAT file system)
7. Restore all data, to the micro SD.

Put your ipod in Disk mode, in this way you will be able to delete de music files manually.
  1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.

  5. Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
