    Title. I changed a few settings in the bios of my Hi10 Air (RAM frequency and allocated iGPU memory iirc), and now it won’t work.

    When I plug in the charger, even the LED on the tablet itself won’t flash. If I try to turn it on, the power LED on the attachable keyboard blinks, and that’s it.

    I did the same thing changing ram frequently.

    Plug in a USB keyboard, hold power for 13 seconds if not more. Make sure its charged. Then power it one pressing esc on the keyboard, it should reset the bios to defaults. This unbricked mine.
    Only setting you should mess with is vram size, 256mb max.

    Doesn’t seem to work… tried it with the attachable keyboard and a USB one. I suppose holding it for 13 seconds is to shut it down in case it is turned on? Holding ESC while booting it does nothing sadly…

     

    Also, do you know if this thing comes apart easily? I bought a CH341A BIOS reprogrammer thingy, so maybe I can reflash the BIOS that way.

    I was holding escape while trying to power it on, kinda surprised it worked. Only settings I messed with were Ram frequency and vram size. It reset both settings when it did finally come back to life again.
