I am a VERY DIY person and I just recently bought a UBook Pro, 8100Y model and I see it has potential! After seeing how many areas it can improve in, I decided to go ahead and start making new adjustments. Please note I am NOT responsible for you damaging your tablets! You know the risks! So let’s begin!
- Reinstall Windows 10 from scratch! Remember to reactivate your touchscreen, you just need to turn on USB type C in the settings of you BIOS.
- Change the second CHUWI boot logo to whatever you like. I changed mine to “UBook Pro” so it looks more professional when starting up the tablet.
- Sorry CHUWI but let’s face it! The battery for a great tablet like this one sucks and is well known to balloon up after about six months of use according to many users and ruin the tablet indefinitely and also cause a fire! So why order a new battery pack from you guys if it’s going to happen again?
CAUTION: LIPO Batteries are VERY dangerous if mishandled. It is dangerous work making a battery packs! ONLY DO THIS ATTEMPT IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!!
So I used Samsung branded 4x 3.6V Lipo batteries of 18Wh each which add up to a nice CUSTOM 60wh battery pack when placed in a 7.6V configuration to which the tablet runs on and still using the original BMS of the original battery pack.
NOW I AM GETTING calculations of 10 hours battery life with battery settings set to balanced and screen brightness set to 35%. So real world approx I should get about 7-8 hours battery life.
Mine NEVER worked… Broken drivers? Physically broken camera modules? Even if they did work, the quality is very potato like!
I haven’t started this mod yet but I plan to use those very slim camera modules they use on laptops. They will fit nicely inside the tablet casing and they could be at least half as decent then the proper ones.
OR I can just use a Logitech Webcam… But where is the fun in that right?
They are not bad but they can do with a lil more loudness at least. I haven’t started this mod yet but I plan to use a miniature 3W inline stereo amplifier, tune it accordingly to my liking and close everything up nice and neatly. Can easily use a 5v source from the motherboard.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and helps give you an idea on how you like your tablets to be.
