    Hi have changed vold.fstab file and reboot. After that my funbook p300 works only when pc/laptop is connected with it. Storage is not found. For hard reset, voulume button is also not working. I have used your techniques. Now volume button is not working. But still I don’t find storage (sdcard/extsd).

  • R Gubbi

    If you haven’t noticed already, there is an issue in the recovery-install.bat
    The following line need to be changed
    adb push recovery.img /data/adb shell “cat /data/recovery.img > /dev/block/nandg; sync”
    adb push recovery.img /data/;
    adb shell “cat /data/recovery.img > /dev/block/nandg; sync”
    Other than that, it worked like charm. Thanks.
    Any idea if the same CWM works for Karbonn ST3 ? I am looking for Android 4.1 ROM for Karbonn ST3. If you have any pointers, please let me know.

    • Hello
      This was working perfectly for P300. I have the tablet and it works like a charm.
      I have no idea if this will work on ST3 or not but this recovery is only useful for some other Allwinner A10 chipset devices.
      No idea about Android 4.1 for ST3 yet.

        • Wipe battery stats in CWM.

          • satinder singh

            sir how should i wipe the battery stats in CWM . i try battery calibration software but no help sir. i will be very thank full to you for this kind help sir.

          • In ClockworkMod, go to Advanced > Wipe battery stats.

          • satinder singh

            Sir i did the battery stats wipe in CWM . but still the problem persist sir. any other option i can do so that it didnt sutdown sir at 17%

          • This is a common problem with all the Funbooks.. Maybe a factory reset will help.

          • satinder singh

            thank you sir. i hope it works sir. is cyanbook jellybean rom working well. i mean is sreen rotation is ok sir.

          • If your Funbook model is P300 then yes you can try.

  • Huh?

  • Srikanth Turlapati

    I installed superuser from CWM, and installed su update fixer.

    I opened superuser, and select settings, but do not see anything like
    Su Binary > Install the Binary

    • There should be something like “Tap here to update binaries”.

  • Exactly!
    I don’t understand why people blame others if they can’t follow the steps properly.
    I have also mentioned that this method is only valid for P300 but I don’t understand why Manas didn’t follow.

  • rishit

    after i install the es file explorer my funbook got off and when i try to on it .it shows the funbook title and gets off again…what should i do now ???

    • Not possible. ES file explorer is just an app and it doesn’t do anything to a system.

      • rishit

        i too know that but suddenly it got off and now showing problem while i on it 🙁

  • Try on a diff PC then.

  • firstly when i pressed 1 in command promt on computer , it din’t show successful installation of CWM.
    secondly whenever i enter “update from sd storage” and select to update , it always shows – installation aborted.
    if u can notify by email – [email protected]
