ICS 4.0.3 For Kingcom Joypad C81

Disclaimer: WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE. FIRMWARE UPDATES ARE USED AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Because those clowns at http://www.e-kingcom.com don't have ICS update for Joypad C81, we have to use a Custom Firmware

Preliminary Step




Put Tablet In Recovery Mode

You need to put the device in recovery mode to download the firmware to the tablet with RKDeviceManage. Connect Kingcom Joypad C81 via USB while holding the M button and power button, RKDeviceManage should detect Kingcom Joypad C81

Sending The Firmware To The Tablet


  • In RKDeviceManage, browse and load the Custom Firmware file that you have prepared in the preliminary step
  • Push the Upgrade button to transfer the selected firmware to the tablet
  • The firmware will be copied to the tablet, a progression counter will go from 0% to 100% on this step, followed by a verification

When the transfer is done, let the tablet reboot and update itself. It should take a few minutes for the flash process to finish.

In case Kingcom Joypad C81 does not turn on automatically, use the device reset button (small hole located next to the power button)

Troubleshooting

If the device is not detected or if the driver does not install, here are a few things to check:

  • make sure your tablet is connect directly to the USB port on the computer, not thru a USB hub
  • make sure your USB cable is in good condition, if your cable looks defective, try with another cable

You can also try to change Windows 7 Device Installation Settings:

  • Go to ‘Control Panel\System and Security\System’ ‘View Advanced system Settings’, on ‘System Properties‘ window, select the ‘Hardware‘ tab, click on ‘Device Installation Settings‘ button
  • On the “Device Installation Settings” window, choose ‘No, let me choose what to do‘ and ‘Never install driver software from Windows update‘
  • Press ‘Save changes’ button
  • Reset your tablet, you should then be able to install the custom drivers

When the drivers are installed, you can change Device Installation Settings back
