I own a Klipad KL4888 tablet running Android 6.0.1

After a crash, I had to do a factory reset and a wipe cache from the recovery menu.

However, when restarting and running the setupWizard, it asks me a Wifi/GSM, but systematically the message "Can't connect to the internet" appears.

So I went through ADB (the device is unfortunately not pre-rooted), and in the logs I noticed this :

02-28 23:03:25.995 2784 2929 I SetupWizard.CheckConnectionTask: connecting to walled garden server. retries=0
02-28 23:03:26.246 970 1174 D WifiService: acquireWifiLockLockLocked: WifiLock{NlpWifiLock type=2 binder=android.os.BinderProxy@52836c}

I also tried to disable Wifi, in order to be able to choose the "Ignore" option but obviously not enough rights.

The problem is that this famous site that is being tested is obviously no longer reachable. Is there any way to get out of this situation? An upgrade, but is the hardware compatible? Modify the Java sources, in order to ping another site?

Thank you !

I was stuck with the same device for 1 month. I finally got rid of this by DNS cheating.

  1. Setup your own DNS server

  2. Add a primary zone named status.eqoe.cn

  3. Add a ressource record A type on the zone with target 216.58.204.110 (IP found resolving clients1.google.com, setup android site)

  4. Declare your own server as DNS in your wifi setup

  5. Now setup your device and don’t forget to forget your wifi settings (in order to flush dns cache)

You will access standard google android setup, instead of unresponsive eqoe.cn one.

When your device is ready to work you can discard DNS setting on wifi setup

  • Oh, my God, you're a genius! Thanks a lot, the solution works perfectly (remember to leave the Wifi terminal to empty the DNS cache), and it works like a charm ! Too bad I can't give you any points yet, thank you very much ! – Sigri44 May 3 '20 at 7:54
