How to do firmware reset on a bauhn tablet - model AT - HK8
OK THIS WORKS 100%
1.Use a pin in the rear reset hole whilst holding the power button for A-HK8 Aldi Tablets, hold until the screen flashes white once, Then turn on Power as normal....it will appear to be stuck on the ANDROID logo but it isn't....
2.wait with the android logo showing on the screen for 3 minutes, don't touch anything, just let it be for 3 minutes....
3.the upgrade or optimize app menu screen will come on, let it finish the upgrade usually 1 or 21 ..(let it do it if this comes up don't touch anything) ...if no upgrade is required, it will go straight into the screen ready mode with the clock.....
4.navigate into settings, and select backup and reset......(at this point if you have a SD card i would backup your apps and google account to it) otherwise hit erase everything.....and factory reset the
I must also say that the dual core in these HK8's get very overloaded and overheat when playing it, as there is no gills or vents on the back cover, this is a manufacture fault by Bauhn, and they have since stopped making these,
it's a shame as it will only last a short while maybe 3 months or more until you need to do a hard reset all over again, as the tablet overheats mid use and causes a corrupt shutdown and when turned on again will need another dammed hard reset.....they constantly need hard resets... if you haven't the heart to throw it in the garbage and say goodbye to your $200 then ...this is what you will have to prepare for if you continue to own it..
one good thing though, is anything you backed up like apps, google play accounts, and photos can easily be used on a new tablet say like a "samsung" if you keep getting the crash error saying " Apparently such and such stopped working" means the Core duo chip is overheating at this stage, feel the back cover its unaturally hot and your battery juice is being sucked dry. means pretty much your core duo is fried and anything you touch will stopp working, it can't run when that hot....like i said earlier this is a common fault with the AT-HK8 Tablets from ALDi...and why Bauhn quickly stopped manufacturing them and offering support any longer....believe me after hard resetting it a few times every few months, you will want to take a hammer to it or frisbee it against a wall. up to you.
