Chuwi Hi10 Bios Update Bug Fix

Chuwi Hi10 Bios Update Bug Fix

Chuwi today has posted a new bios update  for the 64bit version of the Hi10. Using Google translate, it looks like it fixes issues with MicroSD card class 10 or higher and bios splash screen? I think that might be the screen flicker reported on the first release batch?

Only serial numbers HI10 64G42151105000 or higher should flash it, and I personally I wouldn’t flash this if you don’t have any problems with your Hi10. Remember, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it! 

To flash, make a GPT bootable Fat32 pen drive, extract the files to it and then boot to the drive from the bios. It will take care fo the rest. And remember to have at least 70% charge or more. Do this on a flat battery and you risk a brick.

  1. Any idea if this would be appropriate for the Hi10 Pro? I have a issue with the screen turning off and then back on. Kind of like what happens if you change the resolution on your monitor.
    Thanks.

  2. the screen light adjusts many times despite i have set the auto brightness to off.it happens especially when brightness level is less than 20

  5. Here’s the link for the English version of chuwi website and forum http://en.chuwi.com/support.html. Downloads are on there and word doc explaining how too flash bios

  6. Can anyone confirm this fixes the random touchscreen problem. Where the tablet goes haywire opening apps and it seems the screen is being touched when it isn’t.

  7. Hello everyone, a noobie here

    I have tried everything to repair my failing Hi10, The SD card reader slowly over time just stopped reading and now will not even recognize the cards. I have a 128g, 64gig, 32g and an 8g card. The only one that consistently works is the 8g now. I read site after site on how to fix this issue and nothing helped. I think the only solution is to restore to factory settings. I have the latest ROM 608 installed no help. All cards work perfectly using an SD to USB reader. All the cards work great in my laptop. Very bizarre.

    Any suggestions would be great.

  8. Just a warning! Apparently this bios will brick new Chuwi Hi10 tablets with serial HI10 64G4216xxxxxxxxx and higher…

  9. This bricked my Chuwi Hi10. Is there any way to recover?

  10. Hi Chris. I tried this and my tablet seems a complete brick It won’t boot from the USB. Is there some kind of reser procedure I missed?

  11. Argh… I am running with the 607 BIOS as well but for a model that finishes with the serial model 4212. The right half of the screen randomly displays pixels (copy of existing screen content) from time to time. It’s there 100% of the time if I were to drop brightness to anything under 75%.

    Any help?

  12. Hi Guys,

    i am thinking about buying this tablet/netbook, but still i am a bit worried about the 4GB RAM Mystery because this Cherry Trail do only support 2 GB so how is this supposed to work?

    Anyone who already have this tablet got an answer for this?

    • Hey Harald,

      I’ve had mine for nearly 2 months now. Can confirm that yes it does have 4gb of RAM.

  13. I have similar issue. From new I put 64gb class 10 microSD and it was fine but now it will not boot with the card inserted. BIOS is current but I did re-flash and no better. Any suggestions appreciated

    My screen 2 times when the tablet do nothing it get totally messed up on the right side of the screen with random pixels.
    It look like the screen was physically broken, When I restart the tablet the screen get ok again!
    Today the touch start touching randomly on the screen, so I decide to do the flashing!
    After Flashing, not seeing any problem so far! We see if my tablet going to behave from now on?

    The screen sometime flickering, I am not sure it’s a auto brightness function, normally the screen is surprisingly good!
    the original micro USB cable with my wife Galaxy S5 charger, charge: 1.91A
    the original micro USB cable and the the original power supply, charge: 1.52A
    the original Galaxy S5 Micro USB only charge 0.77A (I am not sure why Samsung give a 2A charger with a less than 1A Micro USB cable to the S5)

    the original micro USB cable is actually very good!
    the original power supply get very hot compare to other branded charger!

    I use the tablet for a application and it is little sluggish it feel the same speed as my Pentium laptop I buy 2002
    But for surfing it surprisingly fast!

  15. What version is that? I’m currently using C106_B101UAN.607

  16. Remember I only suggest you flash this bios if you have issues. Otherwise you could create one!
