Just received the Ubook Pro. took just 9 days to receive it. Impressed with banggood. For me having Android on it is essential! Windows 10 is practically useless in tablet mode.
I will journal what all I am trying to get it working as an Android tablet. I will only experiment booting via USB until I find one that works (works as defined in my OP).
I update windows 10 fully with all the latest drivers, patches, etc.
Initial test: connect with wifi, open brave browser, load up youtube and music video Claydee-Alena in 2160 resolution; but also 1080p will be ok. Any lower is not ok. Then mid-way connect to my bluetooth speakers and keep play the music video
Initially, I will have the keyboard attached.
Today I tried Bliss OS 12.8 - full experimental version, in following formats:
- Live or legacy modprobe mode: Totally useless. Just trying to bring down the taskbar to connect to wifi crashes the System UI. I was lucky to be after 10 minutes of trying able to reboot the tablet (I guess I could have long-pressed the power button to force shutdown). Tried 2-3 times. Same result again and again - can’t even bring up the wifi settings. As soon as I touch the touchscreen it crashes the System UI
- with Vulcan support - got the furthest with this. Even then it was not a good test. First tried with 2160 (looked stunning video! I had heart filled smile with the res) - was playing fine until I tried to minimise the video and connect to bluetooth. Crashed the display - it was just hung and not accepting any input, music stopped playing.
I restarted and then tried 1440 - same outcome as 2160.
I restarted and then tried 1080p - got further and was actually able to connect to bluetooth while song was played and video minimised to the side. But eventually it hung too
More tests later. If anyone has had more luck then let me know. Idea is to test next with a bit more on Bliss OS 12.8 (experimental), then go to experimental lite, and then stable version. Then also test PrimeOS. This will take about 2-3 days I think. Then I will settle with one most stable one so far and use that for a week before installing it to the hdd and making it the primary booting OS as I cannot see myself ever using Windows 10.
BTW, it is all very ZIPPY/fast. It has been a pleasure to use, while it is working. I wish Chuwi would invest some time in creating some Android instructions -> their sales would quadriple. There is a much bigger market of people wanting to use this as an android tablet or 2-in-1 Android/Windows tablet than a windows only tablet. I think there are some legal reasons that Chuwi haven’t done this - I would guess Microsoft are not allowing it! (think I read Google also doesn’t allow it but I am sure Chuwi can find a way around it … secretly leaking the info
