Hello Chuwis,
days ago i wanted to boot to android using os switch in windows mode. Tablet did reboot as expected but won´t startup android. Because i did nothing than using this tablet normal ( no playing around with system - worked really well for a long time!!! )
Now the Tablet freezes when i choose android system in bootmanager. It stops at chuwi logo.

What I did now: Reflash android with flash_json_no_erase to keep windows. After that flash android will boot up but before it boots there is a message I´m worrying about:

"Do you want to skip FOTA? (Y)
If have not enter any key FOTA will execute after 5 seconds
Performing Hash Check to check if IFWI update is required......
IFWI update required.
FMI authenticating the IBB.
Failed to verify IBB: Device Error
FOTA: Capsule Update Aborted Status = Device Error
Updating ESRT table... Completed"

After this message android boots up and i´m able to setup android system for first time. Ok, now if I choose "boot to windows" the tablet reboots to Win. And if i do the same in Windows the tablet reboots and freezes again at chuwi logo.
To sum up: I´m currently only able to use windows.

Can anybody help?

Hello dr.diggler,
What about Boot Menu? Can you see this menu after power on? Can you choose and boot Android from the menu? Just shut down first and power on again to see the BOOT MENU window.

You need reflash Android again with original ROM for your serial number from the thread.
Apparently the last time something went wrong.

You can flash Android with flash.json via Intel PhoneFlash Tool. Then you should reinstall Windows too.

SOLVED!
Behaviour was caused by software "ext2fsd - volume manager" (is for supporting EXT File format in WIN) uninstalled and reflashed android and switching OS is working. Also shutdown works as usual.

Thanks for trying to support me!
