Hibook Pro: Most places list it as having a Z8300 CPU, although some list Z8350, although I wasn’t sure if that’s just a mistake. Is there actually a version of this with the more powerful Z8350? If so, is there a place to buy where I can be sure I am getting the 350 (I don’t think I can trust sites like banggood to actually give me the 350 vs the 300).
Some other questions if you don’t mind:
- Like other Chuwi tablets, is the android OS on this unable to read exFAT/NTFS SD cards? And if so, can this be easily fixed by rooting?
- Can the tablet play MKV files?
- Is there big black bars when playing 16:9 content on this 16:10 ratio tablet, or are they quite small?
- Can Android partition recognise external hard drive, and if not can this be fixed?
THANKS SO MUCH!August 16, 2017 at 9:35 pm #70703Chris GKeymaster

Hi, yes there is a Z8350 version. It’s slightly faster than the Z8300 but barely noticable.
- Unable to read it, will need root and some work etc
- Little black bars
- I think it can if its formatted correctly.

Thanks very much for your help 🙂
Would you happen to have a link to a guide for rooting the HiBook Pro? And just wondering, is there any indication that Chuwi are about to release a successor to this tablet? I guess it’s quite old now and I don’t want to order it and find its immediately been superseded!October 1, 2017 at 7:59 pm #72899athanatoParticipant

There is nothing to root as this is basically a windows computer, you just install your OS of choice like any other computer. For multi-OS boot you would need a boot manager to achieve this which is what Chuwi had to do.
