Tips, Tricks, Caveats

FEL mode

The Volume- button triggers FEL mode.

Adding a serial port (voids warranty)

There are no UART pads available on this device. You will have to use the MicroSD Breakout adapter.

Device disassembly

See the Q8 tablet format disassembly page.

Locating the UART

Pins 151 and 152 of the TQFP do not seem to be wired up. You might get away with attaching a very very thin wire to it, but that requires some very creative soldering.
