Hi, I see lots of posts here and on other forums about the V812 and even the V813 but none on the V818.

Is there anyone out there (apart form me) who has one?  Not sure what Onda are doing coing out wiht so many tablets in the same segment but there you go.  I bought it because it promised to be (slightly) smaller, thinner and lighter then other models.  It is all those things.  It is a nice tab, however, it comes with some kind of Phablet Launcher, and loads of "cutesy" Chinese apps and the very worst Playstore compatibility I have ever seen. absolutely abysmal.  If Onda have even the slightest notion of selling outside of China, and the facebook launch looked like they were trying to, thye need to address this.  Because it is rooted I can get my way around this by side-loading, spoofing etc, but still.... Shouldn't have to.

It doesn't seem to like to play ball that well with other launchers (Apex), loosing auto-rotation randomly, slowing down, BW wdgets disappearing, etc... I think deleting all those pesky Chinese apps has given it a headache.

I'd like to be able to put CMW or TWRP recovery on it and a plain, clean FW would be great.  But I have no idea how to proceed as I can't find any...

Does anyone know where I could get these things?

Do you happen to know the application / apk name for that "Phablet Launcher" ?

How usable is this launcher ? Is in Chinese and does it make sense to remove it as the other Chinese apps ?

Cheers.

No, I don't know hte name of the launcher.  Looking in titanium backup I can see a "launcher 4.1.1" but nothing else.  It is fully translatd into English and other languages, so you you just need to change the default language in the settings.  I'm not too keen on it myself.  I get the feeling it slows things donw a bit and I'm not 100% on how to remove the chinese apps entirely....  That's why I am waiting till someone who knows what they are doing has a go at returning the tablet to plain jelly bean.

OK, I'll prepare a cleaned firmware and will leave the new launcher.
