I just got my Vi8+ (dual boot Win10 and Droid 5.1) with 1608 serial number.  I try this Android code and WIFI + BLUETOOTH do not work.

Can someone confirm if this is the latest Android code.  If not, user flashing this with their newer Vi8+ device will resulted in NO WIFI and BLUETOOTH.  Give us the latest android Code for the right model.

Hope i can help you with this but i already converted my dual to single a couple of days ago.. But have you tried factory reset? Before you do this pls search a bit coz like in windows, some people got stuck after they reset their windows and was unable to boot from it anymore.. So perhaps android will face the same kind of problem..

Are you single boot Windows or Android?  I tried factory reset after flashing the android code provided for Vi8+ but WIFI & BT still not working.  I managed to get a work around by flashing it with Hi8Pro's android code and it solved my WIFI & BT issue, but the resolution is not the same as the Hi8Pro has higher resolution.  BTW I have not tried the "flash.json" option yet because it will wipe out my windows and I have yet got my OTG hub delivered so that option is still to be explored.  My concern is if flashing my device using provided Android and Windows that is not updated for 1608 series , then I might end up like the rest of the folks here where Android is not working and windows is missing proper drivers.
looking at the official firmware provided by the site as example.  BIOS provided is: Bios_D2D3_Vi8A1.232_0704, but when I check my Vi8+ BIOS via msinfo32, this is what's reported and my system model is D4D6.  I am concerning wrong BIOS might brick my device.  So this is what I am really concern about that chuwi not providing the right materials for product they sold.

System Name        DESKTOP-5LL6QIP       
System Manufacturer        Hampoo       
System Model        D4D6_Vi8Plus       
System Type        x64-based PC       
System SKU        D4D6_Vi8Plus       
Processor        Intel(R) Atom(TM) x5-Z8300  CPU @ 1.44GHz, 1441 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)       
BIOS Version/Date        Hampoo 5.11, 2016-07-01

Try to put the factory values from windows 10 and half was an error and now does not boot windows 10, android if

I have downloaded everything related to the installation of win 10 and I have followed all the steps
1- I created with ultraiso usb boot (fat 32) with the file downloaded from the explanation (pan.badui)
2- I copied the 8 files in the root of the usb (when you copy the files there are some files and folders that are duplicated, I replace them by copying
3- I connect the keyboard and the usb to the tablet
4- I enter the bios (f7) and select the usb

But it jumps to the selection screen of android or windows, it does not boot from the usb

Thanks in advance

Please correct dropbox links for vi8 plus & hi8 pro dualboot. Once I  download I will be happy to create mirrors for the links so other users can download without any problems. Thanks

As above, can you refresh the download links or put them somewhere else (like mega.nz)?

BTW, I got recently Chuwi Vi8+ with serial like: P32G2216080XXXX and it comes in dual boot configuration: Android 5.1 + Windows 10 Home... 64-bit edition.
Can you also provide Android/Windows x64 ROMs + BIOS for this device?
