AndroidTool now merges the functionalities of RkBatchTool (single file firmware) and RkAndroidTool (flash the NAND flash with an image corresponding to a particular partition such as kernel, system,. boot, etc..), and hence supports the two methods:
– Single file (firmware.img) – Select Upgrade Firmware, load your device firmware, and click on Upgrade
– If you’ve got several images for the kernel, recovery, boot, parameter, you need to click on Download Image, and load the images for the partitions would want to flash, before clicking on Run to complete the firmware upgrade.
Be patient, and the firmware update should be done after a while.
