Ok. Will do. I’ll hopefully get some time to try tomorrow.May 5, 2019 at 8:37 pm #151630
Thank you javldrc. I’ll try it as soon as I get time. Sorry I couldn’t help you, but you helped me.May 5, 2019 at 5:52 pm #151628
While I don’t have any good answer for you. I have a question. How did you open it? I have one of those and my volume rocker is super sensitive as is the area around it. Just touching the area around it lowers the volume to zero. Which is highly annoying when I try to use it for media. My thought was that the volume buttons might be slightly off so touches around activates the button. But I haven’t managed to open it so I hopefully can fix it. Where should I start to insert the tools?February 11, 2018 at 11:26 am #79304
Thank you. So that would be the “bottom” side if holding it in portrait mode, where the headphone jack is? Sorry for super late reply…July 31, 2017 at 9:19 am #69931
Since you can see the headphone icon in Android, I assume that the tablet thinks that you have headphones connected.
It may be a broken headphone jack or perhaps the jack is dirty.
Try to blow hard into the headphone jack, plug in and plug out headphones a few times…
If nothing works, I guess the headphone jack is broken. I don’t know if it’s hard to change on the X98 Plus, I haven’t even been able to open mine.
There is always the chance that it’s a software problem, but it feels like it wouldn’t be in both operating systems in that case.July 19, 2017 at 9:22 pm #69453
Seems like great news for some of our tablets.
I still haven’t managed to install Linux, it works great from a USB stick with persistent partition, but it would be better if I could get it installed, and somehow be able to choose it at boot, without going to the BIOS. I managed to screw up my partitions bit before, but reinstalled Android with repartition, so it only takes 4GB, I don’t need much installed there and any files can be stored on my old 16GB SD card, which works perfectly. I also made a full reinstallation of Windows 10, using the rest of the space. I currently have a little more than 35GB free on the Windows partition, so I could easily shrink the partition with 15GB or so and still have 20GB for Windows updates to run smoothly. I just need to figure out how all this EFI booting works, and the secure boot things.
This link http://blog.davidelner.com/dual-booting-ubuntu-14-10-on-the-surface-pro-3/ have some info on how to sign Linux as trusted, but I’m still far away from that scenario.
Thanks for all help in this thread, especially from Brad.July 3, 2017 at 11:48 pm #68704
I’ve tried his 2 latest, if you look at the blog. The “fake” unity and the one from 3 posts or so ago with Cinnamon.
On my desktop computer, Windows 10 decided to overwrite grub a few days ago, and I haven’t fixed it yet, which means that I haven’t got any Linux access to test his script, but I’ll get to it soon… Gonna remove Windows dual boot from the desktop and put it in virtualbox instead, I’m fed up with Windows overwriting my bootloader and other things it does after just a normal, non update, shutdown… Unfortunately I need a resent version of Microsoft Word for work, and it doesn’t work in WINE or anything else…July 3, 2017 at 7:52 pm #68700
Linuxium works perfectly on my Teclast X98 Plus(not Plus II), WiFi, Touchscreen, Bluetooth, Sound and whatever more we have.
Only issue is that that the screen rotation is one step clockwise(holding it landscape gives portrait mode and vice versa), but it’s easily fixed by turning the tablet until you get to landscape or portrait(depending on what you want) and then turn off rotation.
My only issue now is to figure out how to install it, what partitions to use and how to get it bootable. But slowly getting there.
Thanks for the help.June 7, 2017 at 11:06 am #67886

A quick googling gave me
It’s also described somewhere on the forum. More or less the first thread made for the a5c8 on what to do first…November 14, 2016 at 8:39 am #56905

Try Google Translate? Or post the readme here for someone else to translate…September 15, 2016 at 8:02 pm #49850
You might have luck with this thread.
Not sure anyone use Ubuntu Touch, but at least there is fuly functioning Mint for the A5C8 if I remember correctly.September 9, 2016 at 8:21 pm #49359
Cool. Thanks. I’ll try it tomorrow.
And yea, same as you. I don’t really use Android/RemixOS much. Have just been testing stuff. For me many apps doesn’t work in RemixOS. Stuff like Faecesbook etc. OK, not that I use it much, but still. Also no third party keyboards were working.
But I thought I’d shrink the Android partition a bit and have more for Windows.
As it is now, Windows is not quite useable while Android would work perfectly with only 16 GB or so.
I guess we’ve gone off topic here…
Well, it has to do with Windows Update 😉
