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 https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/secure/forms/design-assistance.html 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 Ihttps://ark.intel.com/products/series/76761/Intel-Atom-Processor-Z-Series 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,
