Hi all,

 

has somebody tried to install the 97 Platinum hardware in the 972? In theory they are both the same hardware.

 

The guys from HTCmania managed to install it via recovery but the camera and internal SD don't work (http://www.htcmania.com/showthread.php?t=615583)  

The following users say thank you to famimon for this useful post:

That's surprise there are some hardware changes as the 97 Platinum really look alive the Onda V972, but well, the firmware test seem to proove there are some modifications Wink

Still, I'm not sure it's really worth using Archos firmware, as it's quite outdated compared to latest on the Onda. The only advantage I could think of is having the Archos Video Player, that's included in the Platinum firmware, but are probably other ways to get it to run, or buy it on Google Play Store.

Apparently the rom is much more reliable than the Onda one, the latest 4.2.2 dries the battery in about 3h and the 4.1.1 doesn't really perform well. Other advantage of using the Archos firmware is that has more compatibility in the Play store

Problem solved with the internal SD, all I had to do was editing /etc/vold/fstab and replacing this line

 

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/virtual/block/nand1

for this one

dev_mount sdcard /mnt/sdcard auto /devices/virtual/block/nandj

nandj is the 11GB partition in the internal memory.

 

The rom works really really well so far and doesn't use so much memory as the 4.2.2

 

The only one problem to solve is the camera now
