I would like to know how you can tell what BIOS came on my teclast c5j6. Any ideas? Also wondering if you can update just the BIOS without having to redo everything else?July 27, 2015 at 11:49 pm #7655MartinParticipant

Connect a USB keyboard to the tablet and press ESC or DEL at the beginning of the boot process to enter the BIOS. At the top you can find the BIOS version and build date. My Teclast X98 Air 3G C8J6 was delivered with “Project version: tPAD 1.07” and “Build Date and Time: 01/16/2015 12:16:21”. After upgrading to BIOS 2.02 it is now “Project version: tPAD 2.02” and “Build Date and Time: 04/21/2015 17:48:54”. I don’t know an easier way than this one.
There is a well explained tutorial at xda-developers from tecknight:
Went smoothly on my C8J6. Android and Windows Installations won’t be touched by a BIOS update.July 28, 2015 at 12:36 am #7657
Awesome thanks for the fast response.July 28, 2015 at 12:44 am #7658
I have the 1.07 bios also. My tablet has been having a issue with thermal throttling. Did you lose windows activation and does the BIOS update fix anything? ThanksJuly 28, 2015 at 11:07 pm #7729MartinParticipant

Windows is still activated after the BIOS update from 1.07 to 2.02.
I updated to prepare the tablet for new ROMs from Mirek190, currently I’m running the Android 5 Lollipop beta from him. Also, the update improves the stand-by time with Windows. In 19h I got an average battery drain of 1.26%/h, thats still far away from an iPad’s performance. You get what you paid for. 😉December 29, 2015 at 10:25 pm #20458Zsolt TóthParticipant

Could be the BIOS the reason?
