Resurrection from the Bricked- a revision of my earlier Tablet discussion

Resurrection from the Bricked as they say in the tablet world- in other words its bu*ed

Attempts at recovering from a boot failure. looks like a have managed to delete the whole system on a MoMo11

Looking at it as if it were a PC architecture then what I have now is the BIOS telling me to load a system disk- or in Android parlance from Micro SD card.

So I am looking around the usual places for say Ice Cream Sandwich download and as far as I can see there is isn't one.

So whats next?

Could I for example load a Linux distro - say Ubuntu or similar? And would this have the necessary to work the touch screen?

Manufacturers sometimes put a customised version of Android on their tablets. You have tried a factory reset after a series of problems and have ended up with a brick. Suggest that it is now time to bite the bullet and return the tablet under warranty before they can claim that unauthorised software is the problem.

I am I must admit 'torn on this'I conasider I broke it but I have contacted the supplier -An Amazon Market place member therefore possibly a 'box-shifter' and await their response.

Meanwhile on this very site in the How to pages I came across this

Thank you all for the links to GTR

And the Amazon Android Forum

Gary seems a good guy to have around,

He responded literally over night to my plea with the appropriates- which I have downloaded and printed off the instruction sheet.

I am all ready to go- but my computer isn't - its Linux Ubuntu and does not hack .rar files so it looks like I will h ave to put all the files on a USB drive and get across to a chum with a Windoze machine

That won't be until sometime next week.

I don't think that Windows opens rar files without downloading a program. You should be able to do the same for Linux.
