Old thread here, but I didn't find any more recent posting.
Having an issue with the Yoga 10 I bought for my mother inlaw a few years ago. A while back it started crashing in a loop, upon booting Android the com.android.phone app continuously crashes, no way to to anything as you hit ok to acknowledge it pops right back up.
I tried to flash the factory ROM as per guidelines through this tread and youtube. USB drives installed on my win7 machine, loaded the ROM "scattered" in SP flash tool, hit Download, it sees the tablet when plugged into USB, give me a success at the end.
I turn on the tablet and it boots into the same thing (as outlined above). It doesn't give me the prompts to confiigure as new. It's almost like the ROM isn't loaded, when turning on the tablet it's like I did nothing.
Anyone have luck flashing with the SP tool and then actually configuring as new out of the box? I tried both 4.2.2 and 4.4.2 factory ROMs from the russian forum and same thing happens - nothing.
The instructions are not the same. Some say "download", others say "format + download", others "firmware update", etc. Also during the "scattered" loading of the ROMs, one component "FAC" isn't checked, which you cannot then to a "firmware update" from the SP tool. Someone suggested manually pointing it to the FAC.img file in the ROM folder, tried that too.
It's almost like the tablet doesn't even see the ROM I'm loading..
