Intel Baytrail tablet - how to get updated BIOS and Android

I have 30 Intel Baytrail tablets for a project. They are Intel tablets (made for Intel by ECS) model TA70CA2. Neither Intel nor ECS has wanted to support them. Sadly I bought 30 of them.

I need to know the following things:

  1. How do I enter the BIOS setup? I have a USB OTG hub with keyboard attached. Can't access a BIOS setup screen.
  2. How can I get an updated BIOS flashed to these tablets. 2014 is when the BIOS on these tablets was created.
  3. How can I boot/install an updated Android or install an updated Android. So much Android development is ARM, impossible find ROMs for these Baytrail IA tablets.

Thanks to all who respond.

Hello, JJohnson :

Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

In order to help you please address your request by filling out the Embedded Design Assistance form.

On the other hand, it is important to let you know that unfortunately the Intel(R) Atom(TM) Processor Z Series is on the "off-roadmap" and its support is for limited manufacturers. For this reason, this processor family is unsupported through this channel. Click on I ntel(R) Atom(TM) Processor Z Family website to learn more about the specifications of this family.

We hope that this information is useful to you.

Best regards,
