I MOVED THIS TO ITS OWN THREAD IF YOU WANT TO REPLY.
Hey guys, I am having issues with the flash, but I think it is procedural for my setup at this point. I can move to a new thread if that is better. I have never tried to flash the chip before so this may be easy. I have the VM loaded, I think I have my chip jumpered correctly (can I tell?) and I plug in the CHIP, then start the VM. The VM says it never finds a CHIP in FEL mode and eventually times out and drops to the shell.
I see a USB device listed called "Onda (unverified) V972 tablet in flashing mode [02B3]" so is that it? When I look at the USB settings I see that there is a "filter" set to "CHIP FEL Mode". Should I add a new filter for the device I mentioned above? (I don't think that will help because when I tried it the created filter was identical except for adding a "revision" number) Have I done something wrong? I didn't load any drivers in windows 10, but then again it didn't ask me to. I do see a device that doesn't seem to have a working driver loaded in my win10 device list.
