I don't know if here is the right place to put this but I need your help identifying what I believe is a Chinese tablet that a friend of mine received as a gift.

The problem is that it is locked in the boot loading process (it only displays Android on screen) and I need to reinstall it. The only information I have is what dmesg returned when connected via USB

:~$ dmesg | tail
[161396.250396] usb 2-1.1: Product: Android
[161396.250399] usb 2-1.1: Manufacturer: USB Developer
[161396.250401] usb 2-1.1: SerialNumber: 20080411d412e5d
[161401.258415] scsi10 : usb-storage 2-1.1:1.0
[161402.252904] scsi 10:0:0:0: Direct-Access USB 2.0 USB Flash Driver 0100 PQ: 0 ANSI: 2
[161402.253268] scsi 10:0:0:1: Direct-Access USB 2.0 USB Flash Driver 0100 PQ: 0 ANSI: 2
[161402.254146] sd 10:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg9 type 0
[161402.254372] sd 10:0:0:1: Attached scsi generic sg10 type 0
[161402.257914] sd 10:0:0:1: [sdh] Attached SCSI removable disk
[161402.260390] sd 10:0:0:0: [sdg] Attached SCSI removable disk

I already try to find the serial number and the manufacturer on Google but I can't find anything related. I took some pictures from the tablet and the box

    I've no idea what it is, but you should plug it in to USB, run lsusb on your PC, and edit the result into your question. That's more likely to help identify it. – Dan Hulme Mar 5 '14 at 22:53
  • Hi, the lsusb gives this Bus 002 Device 017: ID 18d1:0003 Google Inc. the lsusb -v returns this pastebin.com/SZtEUfqN – SiRGt Mar 6 '14 at 14:36

Using ADB (comment if you need help getting that setup):

Connect your device to your computer

On the command line in the directory containing adb.exe

Use this command: adb connect localhost:5555

(assuming you are on windows, let me know if otherwise) Then do: adb bugreport > report.txt

That should give you a whole bunch of info in a txt file in the same directory you executed the command. In the file you can search with a text editor (notepad for example) for all the info your heart could desire.

  • Hi, I'm on Linux but I manage to run the command and now I have a lot of info that I don't understand haha but because of your suggestion I made an adb and a lot of readeing and with a adb shell getprop now I have what I need to re install the tablet or at least more info than what I already have :D thanks! – SiRGt Mar 6 '14 at 15:51
  • BTW this is the result of adb shell getprop -> pastebin.com/08r5nvie – SiRGt Mar 6 '14 at 15:54

    I found a solution to the boot loading loop here. It was matter of install CWM, boot in to recovery and wipe cache/factory reset. Now it boot normaly :D – SiRGt Mar 13 '14 at 20:26
