How to reinstall the "Android" on the tablet and smartphone
Now we will talk about how to reinstall the “Android” on the tablet. Many users mistakenly believe that in order to carry out this procedure, it is necessary to contact specialists or send the device to the service center. However, you can reinstall the Android OS yourself. At the same time spending a little time.
How to reinstall the “Android” on the tablet and why it is needed
First of all, we need to make sure whether it is really time to reinstall the operating system. This is done, most often, in several specific cases:
- If there are failures in the operating system.
- To extend the functionality of the device, enhance user privileges.
- If you need to install applications that did not work on the tablet before.
- In the case when you need to increase the level of security as well as confidentiality by getting rid of several "factory" functions.For example, to disable the transfer of GPS coordinates of the device, phone number, as well as other personal information to Google’s servers, if there is no user consent. From time to time, experienced users replace the factory OS with custom versions of “Android”, which are much more convenient to use, use less system resources and allow you to get rid of various pre-installed applications. When a tablet computer is purchased abroad, or through the online store of another country, it is with considerable probability that the Russian language may not be installed. Reinstalling the platform can help solve a similar problem. It should also be noted that some custom versions of the platform give the owner of the device more options for modifying and personalizing the system to your liking.

There is another solution: we can copy the files u-boot.bin, wload.bin and env.bin to removable media from the internal memory of the device. In the next step, we transfer the above components onto a personal computer and by means of it format the memory card. After that we create a folder in the root directory of the carrier named SCRIPT. Copy the operating system files to this directory.Previously, it was downloaded by us on a PC. At the next stage, we completely turn off the tablet computer, insert the memory card to which we saved the OS, and turn on the power.
