I was struggling into the rootview of my Teclast P78S tablet trying to change the initlogo.rle image. I was going to replace it with a image of my own, when I accidentally deleted the original initlogo.rle.

Although I've been warned by a message in terminal like

initlogo.rle cannot be deleted. Read-only archive

It restarted my tablet and it is doing a boot-loop right now.

Solutions I've already tried:

  • Holding Power + Vol (down or up) doesn't power on the phone in recovery mode at all..
  • Theres a hardware "Reset" button, but when I press it, it get stucked at the boot-loop.
  • I can't access ADB in order to replace the original initlogo.rle

What should I do? Is my tablet bricked?

There should be a solution for such a poor mistake.

  • I'm guessing so. You can't access the bootloader or the recovery, right? On top of that, you can't access ADB. And the reset button doesn't work. High chance of bricking. The device is rooted and has a custom recovery, but is in a bootloop. – rjt.rockx Apr 25 '15 at 5:59
  • Which SoC does your device have ? (Qualcomm, Mediatek, etc.) – rjt.rockx Apr 25 '15 at 5:59
  • It's a Intel-based processor. – Machado Apr 25 '15 at 11:23

    I have no idea about Intel, but for Mediatek devices, there is a tool called SP Flash tool, in which all partitions can be rewritten with a full firmware image. Do a Google search for a similar tool for Intel devices. Might show up some helpful results. – rjt.rockx Apr 25 '15 at 11:26
  • Heck. Those tools seem to require adb first.. – Machado Apr 25 '15 at 18:00
