  • Amlogic Next8P12 (NXM805MC) Modified Recovery - Stock Rom - Root & Gapps

    These files are for the Amlogic Nextbook Next8P12 (NXM805MC) also referred to as the "Black Friday @ Big Lots" model.

    Here is what you get:

    Modified Stock 3e Recovery:

    This is the stock recovery, dumped from the device, unpacked, modified to use Google Test Keys instead of Private Nextbook Keys and then repackaged for your enjoyment.

    Unzip and place the uImage_recovery file on your external SD Card. Reboot to recovery by holding Volume and Power. You won't notice any visual changes, but you can attempt to flash any .zip signed with Google Test Keys.

    Your mileage may vary. If something won't flash there is a compatibility problem between the updater-binary or updater-script and our kernel/recovery.


    Stock Rom:

    This is a close as I could get to a flashable stock rom.

    This contains a stock bootloader.img, boot.img, uImage_recovery, logo.img, and aml_logo.img dumped from the device. The system partition was also dumped from the device. I believe all of the Nextbook bloatware is here, with nothing added and NO ROOT. Everything has been packaged into an update.zip and signed with Google Test Keys. This WILL reformat System, Data and Cache. Backup any critical data before flashing.

    Place the update.zip on external SD Card and flash using the modified recovery above.


    Stock Internal SD Card:

    This is just a .zip containing the stock files from the SD Card. It includes the .pdf manuals, intro video, free public domain e-books, demo photos, etc... If you deleted this stuff and wanted it back, just unzip and copy the desired files to your internal SD Card.


    Root Package:

    This is a flashable .zip that installs the su binary and has been signed with Google Test Keys.

    Put it on your external SD Card and flash it using the modified recovery above. Then install your preference of Superuser.apk or SuperSu.apk from the Google Play store or elsewhere.


    Gapps Package:

    This is a flashable Gapps package from Goo.im, with a modified updater-script and resigned with the Google Test Keys.

    Put this on your external SD Card and flash with the modified recovery above.

    P.S. > A big thank you to Finless Bob for everything he has done for the Android community, for the legwork he did on the Amlogic Nextbooks that inspired me and lead me this far, and for hosting the above files here on Freaktab.com!


    Thanks also to all the other Freaktab members who helped find the various root methods for the Amlogic Nextbook devices which made it possible to dump the files needed for this project. Everyone's contributions, whether large or small, helped make this possible.

          There are no changes to this ROM other than signing it with google test keys and possible file inconsistencies due to it being a repackaged dump and not an official firmware release.

          I hope to work on a modified ROM or alternate ROM(s) in the future.

                Glad you found it helpful. Thanks for the feedback!

                Did you install the root package also?

                          The serial number doesn't mean much to me, but based on that manufature date, I suspect you have a different model. Most of us with this model bought them in November of 2012. Can you tell me more about your model?

                          If the recovery doesn't boot, either the kernel is wrong for your model, or the screen resolution is wrong for your model.

                              Definitely not the same tablet. It's not even the same size. Be more careful about what you attempt to flash in the future. When uncertain, ask first. Someone on FreakTab will try to help if they can.

                              Did it come with Google apps? Check Settings... About tablet... Model number. What is it? Maybe a Next7P-8G?

                              What are you wanting to do? Is your tablet currently working? Are you just wanting to root?
