Also most Allwinner A10 tablets do not have a recovery option. They run off Livesuit which uses a bootstrap mode. Some like the Alpha 2 and the T02A use a hardware button or they use this method.
1. Power off the tablet
2. Plug tablet into PC
3. Run Livesuit and pick the image file you wish to use. The program will go to the 0% screen.
4.Hold down the volume down button (-) and continue to hold it.
5. Press the power button for just a second or two. (This can be tricky, too long and the tablet reboots.)
6.Now quickly press and release the power button 3 or 4 times. You will hear two connect sounds and Livesuit should prompt you twice to start the image. You can release the volume down and continue.
Thanks for the info ... The DGM-702 does use Livesuite to install an image,
but I haven't needed to use the power button, if the install doesn't run
first time on the PC, the instructions (Originally from Skypad) just tell you
to do a quick disconnect/reconnect of the USB connector on the tab, that
does the trick, and away the reflash goes. It is already rooted I find.
I have found out the hard way that ROM manager, and hence
Clockworkmod aren't compatible with this tablet.
Just for the record, my tab is running stably with the Eken TO2 firmware
No problems to date. ... Jack
