  11. Geez my tablet is the same, but the problem I have is that the android died when I was wrong to want to update it, and I could not reinstall the rom despite having it because there is no way to recognize the USB connection, as the android died I can not activate the debugger usb. How you could install the rom from sdcard. You could help me plis.

    1. What type of phone do you use? .. Some phones can go into fastboot mode in addition to recovery, there you can install firmware updates via SDcard without USB Debugging. Try Reinstall the driver, then you are remove the battery and connect the USB cable to Computer. If there is still no connection. Bring to a service center, because there is a problem in MMC / IC Flash on your Smartphone.
