Do you know where can I download the latest firmware for the Teclast TBook 16 Power (M5F8)?
As far as I understand it fixes the SD issue in Windows 10, is that correct?
Thanks in advance.July 17, 2017 at 6:07 am #69332

Good luck. When you’re done, please share the Android security patch level. Thanks.August 3, 2017 at 10:16 am #70050

There is an update for M5F8 on the English site (http://www.teclast.com/en/firmware/) dated 2017-07-28.
But the download was not possible at the time I checked due to exceeding dl quota in Dropbox.August 3, 2017 at 9:33 pm #70089

Thanks! Hopefully there’s an OTA, or at least some way to install it without resetting everything. I’ll get my Macrium Reflect image ready and check once home.August 3, 2017 at 11:42 pm #70093
I’ve been trying for a few days to download this firmware but every day it says it’s exceeded it’s quota. A bit strange.
I’ve updated Windows 10 to creators update, but did not activate windows before doing so. Now I am unable to activate it as that needed to be done before the update, so I have to reinstall Windows in order to activate it (and would like to upgrade Android as well). However the download doesn’t appear to be working.
Does anyone know of a mirror for this?

Dropbox link finally available! But still no OTA… Can someone install it and verify if Android got updated from May 2016 security patch level? And that the Windows microSD ejecting bug is fixed? Thanks.August 7, 2017 at 6:21 am #70214
Nobody? Well, I decided not to download until the next morning as it was late. Then it became 429 before I finished!
Turns out you can still download this way: https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/5mthpw/dropbox_how_to_bypass_error_429/
Use “Save to My Dropbox” and download from desktop. It works better that way, though take note of your free space and delete if needed.
If anyone wants a mirror, please let me know which website. I’ll see what I can do.August 9, 2017 at 1:04 am #70301
Lively crowd I see… Since I’ll probably have to reinstall it anyways, I want to resize the Windows partition. To do that, I looked over the following links:
So basically I’ve edited the original gpt.bin in HxD by copying line 340 to 360 from gpt_10g.bin, because I want to preserve the original (there are some differences other than size) and only change the 20GB Data partition to 10GB.
Uploading latest firmware to Google Drive right now. It’ll take a while, and I won’t get to installing it myself until tomorrow earliest. If you want the link earlier tonight, please post for once. Thank you.August 9, 2017 at 6:15 am #70307
Well I ran into issues running through the Windows reinstaller. It couldn’t find the “install.wim” file.
So, I manually edited the scripts/main.cmd file:
Search for “installpath”
FOR /f “skip=8 tokens=3” %%A IN (x:\Output.txt) DO (
IF EXIST %%A:\images\install.txt SET InstallPath=%%A:\images&& ECHO “Found device with images folder and install.txt file”
Or whatever drive letter the USB drive with the install.wim gets mapped to. If you get this same error and the bath file stops, try different drive letters until you find the one that has install.wim and install.txt – edit the main.cmd file accordingly
Ran through this installation and can confirm that Windows is activated itself and good to go now.

Also, I ran through the Android updater from this package and turns out it’s exactly the same version than what it shipped with:
Android security patch level: May 1, 2016
Kernel version: 3.14.5
So, after running through the Windows updates and Android updates in this package, I don’t know what the difference is. Doesn’t seem to be any difference.

Maybe the firmware updates somewhere in the process… And you can just restore a disk image after flashing lol.
But do check if the microSD automatic ejection bug is fixed. I’ll try this anyways, because I want to resize the Windows partition.
Here’s the mirror BTW: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B1aujfdH5b4ESFpMcEo3Skh1akUAugust 11, 2017 at 4:23 am #70438
Hi, the SD auto eject bug is not fixed unfortunately. I cannot see any difference from this “new” firmware release and the old, after upgrading both Windows and Android.

Is your SD bug only in windows?
If so there is a alternative driver to fix this, using it by my own.
The only thing it reduce the write and reading speed for the SD extremly, but it work…August 12, 2017 at 12:28 am #70484
