    Hello all,

    I have a 7 inch android tablet running kitkat version 4.4.3 (not 100% sure if it is 4.4.3 or 4.4.4) anyhow it is a intel atom based system, my wife when to shut the tablet off a few days ago and she got a wierd screen when she went to turn if off, so she thought the battery was dead and plugged it in. Anyhow I get home (hours later), and goto turn on the tablet I get the bootloader screen and then I get a usb symbol and then the tablet turns off, each time I hit the power button (BTW: the device is not rooted and is using the stock rom that the device shipped with), I have gone into the recovery menu and did a wipe data/factory reset on the device a few times, then after I hit the reboot system now option with no luck still get the usb symbol and the tablet turns off.

    Any help would be great ie is the tablet toast or is there a way to turn off usb mode and go back into the normal boot cycle.

    Also the bootloader is locked as well.

    Sounds like what happened was a system update was interrupted (either by power running out of forcing it to shut off) and corrupted the system. You might have to flash the stock firmware to get it operational again. Do you have a make/model number?

    it is a China made tablet that would be under quite a few names, however I was not in the process of doing a system update since there are none for this tablet.

    As a side note I have replaced this tablet, with a new Lenovo tab 4 8 inch tablet running android 7.1.1

    That would certainly limit the availability of firmware. I think replacing it was your best option. :thumbsupdroid:
