C: A USB stick.

If you have the Hi13 rotation keyboard, the OTG and external USB keyboard won't be needed.
And bluetooth keyboard can't be used.


                     
The first step:

Prepare a USB Stick to connect your computer. Format it into the FAT 32 format and rename it as "WINPE". Copy the all files in the rar file to the USB stick as follows:

The second step:

Connect the USB stick and the keyboard to the tablet via OTG or HUB


The third step:

Please press the power button for around 3 sec, Then tap "F12" continuously in the keyboard until the tablet shows the following image:

The forth step:

Use the arrow pointer to choose your USB Stick for boot, then press Enter

The fifth step:

The tablet will enter Shell mode and start the flashing script, it will take around 2 min for the process

I have just finished doing this and now when I try to turn on the tablet it just stays black. I only know its on because of the light on the keyboard. How can I fix?
Edit: Now working ok. Sorry, I guess it was just something weird.

To be clear though, the OTG and external USB keyboard won't be needed if the user has the Hi13 rotary pogo keyboard, right? You focussed on the situation when the user doesn't have it, and that's good. I'm only trying to make the tutorial slightly more clear what it means.

Edit: also please make clear if both MicroUSB OTG and TypeC OTG works. So even a MicroUSB OTG connected to Hi13 TypeC with a MicroUSB to TypeC adapter should work as far as I can tell. Can you confirm? It shouldn't be necessary if connecting MicroUSB OTG directly to Hi13 MicroUSB would work also for updating the BIOS. Hackerjac confirms MicroUSB on Hi13 can be used for booting USB memory./Edit.

For those wondering what else the Hi13 keyboard is good for, see Laplets vs Tabtops (forum search).

Yes, you are right.

Thanks! Please update the tutorial, because like you know not everyone can make time to read everything before starting with the tutorial or without assuming stuff.

I do not understand how you arrange files in the drive. There are 12 files in the rar folder and your drive shows 2 folders and 1 file. what are the content of your 2 folders?
