Scroll Excel firmware

Postby loebus » September 17th, 2012, 8:23 pm

I have a "bricked" Scroll Excel with damaged screen

It freezes on the Storage Options logo, the balloon.
I can get into the Android system recovery menu using Power and Menu.
Also I can "adb" to the machine

Where can I get the firmware to reflash the device?
and how do I install?

Due to the damage on the screen I was thinking of connecting to television and using keyboard/mouse.

Have you tried a factory reset from recovery?
If it isn't broken then don't try to fix it!

Yes I've tried a Factory Rest and selecting "delete all user data".

The Scroll Excel them proceeds with
Formatting "data" then Formatting "cache"

then selected "reboot system now" returns to Balloon logo.

I've been informed it was left connected to a computer, upon return the Scroll Excel back-light was on - nothing on screen. The computer was off and was unsure if the computer was on when left...

I've downloaded Livesuit 1.07
and I've downloaded the ROM for use with LiveSuit.

Should the Scroll Excel be off, on or in recovery mode?

When I open LiveSuite i get this
welcome use LiveSuit
Warning: upgrade have a risk, working wriness.
please back-up before upgrade, in order to lose data

whether or not entter upgrade guide instruct step


I select "Yes"

Then I get
please select upgrade mode
select enter format upgrade mode (advice use)
select enter general upgrade mode


Which should I select?

Thank you Trashcooky

I've got the Scroll Excel working now!
Running with 4.0.3 which seems faster than mine with 2.3.4


It's just a shame the screen is damaged :( will have to find a hdmi lead...
Plus I notice the button operations are different on 4.0.3 compared to 2.3.4

Again thank you!

Glad you got there. I managed to pick up a 1.9 mtr suitable hdmi lead from Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wired--up-HDMI- ... =8-2-fkmr0

Currently down to £1.84 with free delivery... :D
