I have an unrooted Smartab ST1009x, which did not have ADB enabled.
After a system update, I think I interrupted an app update [I tried to disable the Google app while it may have been mid-update; I admit I wasn't paying attention.] It instantly rebooted and has been stuck in a boot loop ever since.
It looks like I could just do a factory reset, but I really want to recover some files from an art app, so I'd like to avoid that.
It seems like applying an update via an SD would repair the damage I did. Unfortunately I'm completely ignorant when it comes to programming. Everything I find on the internet about doing this presupposes I rooted my machine or I have ADB good to go -- I don't! Heaven help me I'm not even sure what version of Android I'm running.
Does this mean I'm out of luck? If not? Maybe there's a good walkthrough (for someone unfamiliar with Java and programming, real outsider idiot-friendly stuff) that I didn't find -- can you please send me a link?
