Thanks for dropping by and reading my situation.
First I ordered a relatively cheap 7inch Android tablet from a brand called AllWinner containing an A13 chip. For the first two months everything seemed to go REALLY well – I was really pleased with my purchase – WHAT A BARGAIN!
Two months in now and it’s stuck in a boot loop! BOO
I’ve Googled, I’ve Binged and now I’m just pulling my hair out. Surely there should be a simple one stop shop to solve my problem?
So what I have achieved so far:-
Downloaded USB drivers so my Windows XP computer can talk to the Android tablet via USB at:-
Also I then realised I needed some software to talk to the tablet whilst connected via the USB, Live Suite seemed to do this more than adequately:-
I have now acquired a large range of Android ROM’s (allegelly) for the AllWinner A13 models and most seem to resolve the boot loop issue but I can’t seem to advance from there.
You should press ‘volume+’ button and then continuously again and again the press power button – at least ten time then it will boot the tablet now its time to insert the USB cable.
My touchscreen doesn’t work with any of these new ROM’s so I’m no better off really!
I am now trying a selection of ROMS from this website http://www.maixin-china.com/software-download.asp#mx713 hoping that at least one of them will at least get the touchscreen working! #Fingerscrossed
UPDATE – the ROM that worked for me for the Allwinner A13 7inch tablet was :- http://index.maixin-china.com/download/software/MaPan_MX913_Firmware_201212.rar HMMM the touchscreen is now upside down! (getting closer!)
UPDATE MAY 2013 – still attempting to find a ROM that has everything working.
I am trying a ROM that Ive downloaded from:-
If you dont want to login the ROM is available from

Which brings me back to my point of this post:-
Are there standard issue Android ROM’s from Android that haven’t been modded by anyone and are available to download (from somewhere) to get around issues like I’m having with mine. I want a finished product just to revive the tablet rather than a heavily tweaked ROM that may bring other issues!
Am I asking for too much? Surely they should be available somewhere?
Many thanks for reading and feel free to help, assist or point me in the correct direction.
I have now attatched a USB keyboard and can now access the system and utilise it. I’m still no clearer on how to get the touchscreen working though.
