Here is the tutorial for Hi8 Windows:

Hi Emily, do you have any idea why it does not flash my system?
As you said in many threads "you'll have to reinstall system if you have EFI Shell error" What do you mean by this?
Did I do something wrong in my system reinstallation? (See my prior post)

Hi, corpy

You have to flash Android before flashing Windows. Otherwise, you can't flash sucessfully Windows.
Your tablet is Chuwi Hi8 with Intel Z3736F CPU ,you should use ManufacturingFlashTool rather than Intel PhoneFlashTool.
How to flash Android
Intel PhoneFlashTool is only for Cherry Trail Z8300 CPU tablet.

Hi, Emily.

I have a chuwi hi8 pro so I downloaded android from http://forum.chuwi.com/thread-1157-1-1.html using Chuwi Hi8 Pro Dualboot -2016.05 ( used for serial number Hi8 PQ32G22160500001--Hi8 PQ32G221607XXXXX) one. However when following the "How to flash Android" instructions I can't find a xml file that's called flash in the Chuwi Hi8 Pro files.
I'm I looking at the wrong thing.

What xml file do you mean?
You need choose "flash.json" or "flash-no-erase-all.json" file to start flashing Android.

Hi Emily!
I havent had time to fix the tablet. Now I got time and I am back in this thread.

I did use ManufacturingFlashTool as you said before, but no avail. It just stops at 26% telling me it could not find partition table it requires.
I checked the partitions/drives also with diskpart in your provided Windows install (what should have all drivers for loading eMMC chipset up)

As I tought, it couldnt see eMMC internal drive, tho it can clearly see my USB Drive.

And as I told in my first post the Chuwi seems to have problem detecting eMMC chip. It's either bricked chip or it could not detect it because some software glitch.
Checking around this forum, it seems many people have the exact same problem.

I am waiting for a fix for it, cause it seems I am unable to find it myself.

And NO. Telling us to "Reinstall system" when we can't do - is not the answer.

Same problem here

It is really sad to not see any support from CHUWI site. They make some good products but because of their lack of costumer support, they just lost a costumer here
