I'll reach out to the RK chip ROM devs...
not sure if it will work but you can get into recovery and wipe data
it should fix your problem
just put a paperclip into reset hole (keep it pressed)
and push power button
after about 5s you can relise reset button.
post back if it worked for you.
if not you will need to reflash it.
here are some polaroid firmwares.
at the back of a tablet you should have model number
is it saying MIDCF07?
as i cant find anything about this model:"
I try to reset or wipe w/software & succesfully complete but the problem still the same!
I try to flash with rockchipbatch tool firmware of touchmate MID-720.201305IMP4046_6k succesfuly done but touchscreen not function...
After flash touchmate MID-720.201305IMP4046_6k:
Can anyone give me idea for this..................thanx
These tabs are old RK29 devices. I have made many ROMs for RK29 Polaroid tablets!
Look back in this forum for them.
They are all Gingerbread ROMs as I recall. It's been so long I do not remember.
What comes on these tablets now? ICS? JellyBean?
Here are last RK29 Polaroid tablet ROMs I made:
The ROMs I made were for US models called the P7200 and the P700
"Przebacz im, bo nie wiedzą, co czynią"
"Прости их, ибо не ведают, что творят"
"Perdona loro perché non sanno quello che fanno"
"Vergib ihnen, denn sie wissen nicht, was sie tun"
"Vergeef hen want ze weten niet wat ze doen"
"Pardonne-leur car ils ne savent pas ce qu'ils font"
"Perdónalos porque no saben que lo que hacen"
"Oprosti im, jer ne znaju to čine"
"Atyám, bocsásd meg nekik, mert nem tudják mit cselekszenek!"
"Odpusť jim, neboť nevědí, co činí"
"Πάτερ άφες αυτοίς, ού γάρ οίδασι τί ποιούσι"
"Ojcze, przebacz im, bo nie wiedzą, co czynią"
"Forgive them as they know not what they do"
When flashing the firmware with a full reboot and no error messages, then I assume you have the wrong firmware flashed. The screen driver do not fit or hopefully not your screen is damaged.
Are you sure that you have flashed the correct firmware for your polaroid device?
In this case your chances to get a useable tablet are very weak.
You need to find a firmware from a very similar tablet with the same chipset and screen or you ask Polaroid customer service for the firmware.
Is your tablet a rk2926 tablet? Never heard about a 2926 chipset before, but anyway look here is a first trace on slatedroid
There are some tablets listed. Check which ones have the most similar hardware, use their stock stockrom to flash and pray.

try this....shut down unit wait one minute hold down volume up button then hold down power button , process usually starts after five secons plus then release buttons
switch off unit and wait a few minutes
hold down volume up button and power on button together
factory reset usually starts after 5 o 10 seconds then release
factory reset will start if not try reboot
From the site admin of this furom,big tanx to all who give an idea to make my tab fine...
After a month searching for a compatible firmware of this kind of polaroid tab,and i got the compatible rom for this tab
Download here:http://www.touchmatepc.com/new/downloads.asp & select rom 20130640630001 to 20130640638585
then flash to rockchipbatchtool.....camera,wifi,touch screen 100% fine....tested by me!

I have a Polaroid MID0714PCE01.133 (with a mother-board "86V v2.1 20121228" with almost same chipset but not 100% equal because WiFi and webcam doesn't works). I've downloaded many firmwares for TouchMate MID720/MID721/MID730 but none gave me a WiFi 100% functional.
I have uploaded many programs to use with Rockchip SoC in my (public!) folders on MEGA.
https://mega.co.nz/#F!wxJliCiT!fSTU4uzNwJ4h_ZGOYHcjcQ (Rockchip Tools)
https://mega.co.nz/#F!15x3VaZa!JaFyM0lveLSEJ_g9QZT-og (ADB Tools)
You can find in Rockchip Tools:
- Generic versions of CWM Recovery (a must to have, to make Android backup) and TWRP Recovery (problem with touchscreen not working at 100% each time -> use CWM if TWRP bug with your tablet).
- Rockchip Android Tool v2.1 (can flash partition, full firmware or dump partition).
- Rockchip Device Manager v1.7 (as Rockchip Batch Tool, but easier to use to flash firmware).
- Rockchip Firmware Factory Tool v3.4 (program to edit/customize and rebuild Rockchip firmware).
- RK ParamEd v1.0 (utility to easily edit "parameter" file found in Rockchip firmwares).
And you can find QtADB v0.8 in ADB Tools (it's a graphic UI to use ADB).
(sorry for my stupid english, i only speak french)
- What is your tablet model?
- Which system are you using? Windows XP, Vista, Win7, Win8, Win8.1, 32 or 64bit?
- What is the problem with your tablet? It's running normaly or blocked in bootloop on logo?
- What is your project? Re-flash the firmware? Make a dump of the actual firmware?
- Your Tablet is ROOTed, or not? It's recommended to make a dump before flashing new firmware!
If your tablet using a Rockchip processor and you haven't installed the drivers for Windows (all versions, including Win8.1 64bit), you can download "Rockchip Driver Assistant.zip" from here:
https://mega.co.nz/#F!wxJliCiT!fSTU4uzNwJ4h_ZGOYHcjcQ (Rockchip Tools + screenshots)
Just launch the program DriverInstall.exe and click on "Install" button to start the drivers installation. If you are using Windows 8.1 and that an error "USB device initialisation problem" or something like this is displayed when connecting the tablet with USB cable, use the USB_Fix.bat from the USB Fix for Windows 8.1 folder.
Flash a new firmware can be realised with:
- Rockchip Batch Tool v1.7 (manual switch to Bootloader/Flash mode)
- Rockchip Device Manager v1.7 (auto-switch to Bootloader/Flash mode)
- Rockchip Android Tool v2.1 (can flash full firmware or partition(s), unpack firmware, make dump)
And other usefull tools for Rockchip SoC:
- Android Firmware Package Tool v1.5 (can rebuild firmware with partitions dumping)
- Rockchip Firmware Factory Tool v3.4 (tool to customize firmware and rebuild a new one)
- CWM Recovery and TWRP Recovery (custom Recovery, you can backup your system with them)
- RK ParamEd v1.0 (can help to easily edit the parameter file including NAND Flash partition schema)
Tutorial: How to access to Recovery or Bootloader/Flashing modes on Polaroid MID0714 (RK2926):
Tablet completely off, press and hold the [Volume +] button and then plug the charger cable. After few seconds, the startup logo is displayed. Wait until the appearance of the Android robot hood open. To display the Recovery menu, press and hold the [Power] button and then just press 1 second [Volume +]. Another method: Tablet OFF, press and hold the [Volume +] and then press and hold [Power] button for about 5 seconds and release it while leaving pressed the [Volume +] button until appearance of the Android robot. Then, to display the Recovery menu, press and hold the [Power] button and press just one second [Volume +]. Other alternatives (if you have root access): Use "adb reboot recovery" command or else by typing reboot recovery in an application such as Terminal Emulator (jackpal), you can also use Reboot (Petrus).
Tablet 100% OFF, plug the charger and the USB/PC cables. Then press and hold the [Volume +] button and with a toothpick, press 1 second [Reset] button. A new device (unknown) will be detected by Windows. You will need to install RockUSB driver. Next time, switch to Flashing mode can be achieved with Rockchip Batch Tool (without having to redo the previous manipulation) or even automatically when using Rockchip Device Manager. Another method: Press and hold the [Volume +] and then press repeatedly the [Power] button until an unknown device is detected by Windows (this is a little bit random method). Other alternatives (if you have root access): Use "adb reboot bootloader" command or else by typing reboot bootloader in an application such as Terminal Emulator (jackpal), you can also use Reboot (Petrus).
