    I was recieving my Chuwi v88 2 weeks ago, and now I decided to flash the windows version from Chuwi.
    Now it is just a dead piece, has been trying to flash Android 4.2.2 and OMA. And still dead.
    It is recogniced in windows and the flash process is always repporting success, still it gives just an blank screen...
    Anny idees or sugestions?

    Thankyou for the advice.
    Guess you mean, formating NAND.
    Think I have done that +50 times now, and made test whit different boot.img.
    I got different behavior whit each boot.img, the only thing in common vas that the screen stayed black and the backlight was on at 100% exept for the last flash. It's now 100% dead :-(
    And afterwards I discower what was wrong, bummer...
    My pad is an Generation 2, and not an generation 1 that I was convincet at by reading the advice at the download page at www.chuwi.com.
    It apoears that ALL V88 whit serial:
    16G113080....
    and
    16G213080....
    is Generation 2 and not only 16G113something that is written in a few places at the dl page..
    16G is for 16Gb NAND
    1after G is for 1Gb Ram
    2 after G is for 2Gb Ram
    next one "13" is the year eg 2013
    and the next "08" is the month eg August. Or mine as you se in the picture is from September.
    And the rest is most likely an unik serial.
    It's a pitty that I discover this 2 dats to late :-(
    Anyhow it may help someone else to not do the same misstake..

    Geekbying realy need to update there links to flash as there links is only to Gen 1 whit no remarks that tells "Only Gen 1 hardware whit serial up to...".

    Some notes, that may be of intrest:
    1.
    I was running Antutu before flashing it to deth...
    Got an Antutu score of ~19800, that suppriced me as I was expecting a score around 18000.
    2.
    I got an Sandisk Ultra 64Gb SD U1 to work on the V88,it was just to initalise the SD card.

    At the moment I am looking for an good guide on how to open the V88 whitout damaging anything.

    And if the solutions mentioned above don't work, you could maybe try the CR I am using for months now on my Chuwi V88 without a problem and with a good antutuscore:
    Timeless ROM

    I did not have any plectum, had an creditcard that made the job.

    I have seen that some has mentioned a smal hole at the top (behind the front camera).
    Guess the hole to aid in opening the case as the hole align whit a slot in the center hook.
