Asus tablet won't boot


Hi,
I tried posting this issue on another forum but no replies so far so I am trying my luck here.

This is my device >>https://www.gsmarena.com/asus_fonepad_7_(2014)-6394.php

I had purchased this tablet like 6 years back. After just 6 months while downloading "updates" it started complaining about lack of space. I rooted the device and installed a custom rom with the help of an Youtube video. No matter what I did it still kept complaining about lack of space. I got fed up & stopped using the device.
Now when I try to boot I see the Intel logo and a straight line from top to bottom (please see attachment)
Is it possible to fix this device ?

OS on desktop : Ubuntu 20.04
Please note that I don't use MS Windows or Mac on my PC. I use Linux only.

Honestly I never checked the amount of RAM when the tablet was working. On the backside its written "Model K012".

This is the place from where I purchased the tablet.

Sounds like the 4 gig model. Not a lot of hard drive space for Ubuntu I would think.

Your link instructions are old. But basically they Are assuming you have a Windows Laptop or Desktop computer to unbrick your phone. Unfortunately. I have no solution other than what you have shown.

SO LET'S START

Before we start , make sure that your battery is fully charged if you are not sure , put on charger for about 2 - 3 hours and then continue .

1. First we need to install Intel USB driver, iSocUSB driver and ASUS usb driver .
Intel USB and iSoc USB driver comes in .exe setup but ASUS driver we need to install manually .

Here you have video instruction how to install that driver manually .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XpQ1DS63UM

2. Now Open xFSTK-Downloader and click on CLVP A0/B0/B1 from bellow menu and insert all 4 files from xFSTK files folder and fastboot.img.bin file for OS image from Unbrick ROM files folder .

See picture where to insert each file:
https://ibb.co/kGxdpG

For insering last SoftFuse file see this pictures:
https://ibb.co/nwaL3b
https://ibb.co/fFksGw

3. Now make sure your device is off , if is stuck on Intel logo just press long power button while is turned off.

4. Now hold Vol + and plug USB on your device and connect to PC.

5 .Once you connected your device wait while Device status (CLOVERVIEWPLUS TARGETS DETECT) is changed from 0 to 1 and fast click on Begin Download .

See picture :
https://ibb.co/h03yOb

Now the Progress will be green, so wait until Downloading is Finish and the phone it should be on USB logo , or DroidBoot screen and go to the next step .

6.Now move this 3 files from Unbrick ROM files folder and move to ADB folder which is located to C:/ adb ( that ADB folder is from ADB & FastBoot tool which you had installed before).

- boot.img
- fastboot.img
- splashscreen.img

It should look like this see picture:
https://ibb.co/hMYJpG

7. Now stay on that ADB folder , click on Empty place hold shift key on your keyboard and click on Open command window here

see picture:
https://ibb.co/fK2NGw

8. Now to check if is your device in fastboot mode write this command :
fastboot devices and press one time Enter

If your device is show up it will be something like bellow.
see picture:
https://ibb.co/jr1M9G

If your device it doesn't show up then unplug your device from usb cable , make sure your device is off if not press again long power button. Now press together Vol + and Power button at the same time , it will vibrate but don't release keys , once ASUS logo appear release both keys and fast press just Vol - button several times until you see USB logo and Droid Boot screen and plug back usb cable .

Now write again :

fastboot devices and press one time Enter and you should see your device now .

Next step is to write this commands one by one :

fastboot flash fastboot fastboot.img and press one time Enter

fastboot flash boot boot.img and press one time Enter

fastboot flash splashscreen splashscreen.img and press one time Enter

fastboot exit and press one time Enter

9. Now RunASUS Flash tool and do as I showed bellow , once you do that it should be Serial Port detected , once is detected click on START and wait for flashing is Finish.

see picture:
https://ibb.co/kaSiOb

Once you finish that device will reboot to Asus logo , so this will take some time so wait little bit and you have fully worked device . and you can update normally to Lolipop 5 without problem from settings , but again make sure your battery is full because it will take some time do download and also to install that update .

I hope that this will help you also to unbrick your device.

Good Luck
