Hey, folks,

 

I discovered a very strange solution to the YouTube-blackscreen case, u may let us know if it worked for ya:

I did the following - i skipped the track almost to the end (for instance for 27 minute video i scrolled it up to 26:30) and let it finish, then i put the scroller to start (like 00:05-00:10) and the image appeared!! It worked for 100% videos in my case... i swear it worked for me (O_o)

 

did not test on other applications

I also found that this method got the youtube videos to work !!  

With 2.0 the original home wallaper has changed. I preferred the previous one which seems to no longer be there. Can anyone tell me where to find and and how to reload this.

Also still 3 apps cannot be loaded from the store, or sideloaded from apk,  they did sideload and fun fine in version 1.21.  They are tripview (Sydney), LiveTraffic ( Sydney ) and Event Cinema ( Australia ).    Can anyone help with allowing these to be sideloaded ??

 

Thanks

Hey guy I read on another forum that if you uninstall youtube and install an older version of youtube it fixes the problem. 

 

Here is a link to the copy of youtube that works.

I have installed this rom and it is very good. Everything works fine, except YouTube (the blank screen issue).

 

I installed an older version of YouTube (4.1.23) to fix the blank screen. This version, link below, has a 3D interface I like very much:

http://www.4shared.com/android/Cc-rEOZP/YouTube_4123.html

 

I can fell a lot of improvement on the stock browser. It use to lag and freeze on v1.32 and now it is running very well.

 

I'm still testing, but for now I can say it is certainly a good improvement from v1.32. I think I will try v1.35 too.

Onda v972, 16mb, kasty 1.35

Is it possible to:

1. somehow connect 2 USB devices at the same time**

2. use external USB BT dongle to pair with other devices

3. connect to Nokia phone ad-hock WiFi

4. copy files from internal memory to external micro SD or USB key

5. take better photos indoor, where is not so bright

6. minimize lag, even my gf is complaining Embarassed

 

Please, I need some answers...

THANX!

 

** if i use case with USB keyboard I can't use USB port for internet connection (at places without wifi). I don't want to use "huge" cablemoded USB hubs I read about on net, cause then it is better to buy netbook and will be no need to transport additional luggage.

I have a v813, but the internal hardware is basically the same.

1. No. USB doesn't allow chaining. You must have a hub of some sort along with an OTG USB cable to plug into the tablet.

2. I would ask which Bluetooth (if any) dongles are supported at onda-tablet.com

3. Don't know.

4. Sure. I usually use ES File Explorer to do that.

5. Nope. You can play with the exposure and white balance under the camera settings. But look at the lens on the back. It is really small (like pretty much all phone/tablet cameras). Small = very little light gets through = need a bright room. So to take good indoor pictures means turn on all the lights and make the room bright as possible.

6. My v2.0 firmware is much better for my tablet.

Hello! I would try to flash again. You can try that:

 

1) Charge the tablet using the power supply until it reaches 100%

2) Disconnect the tablet from the power supply and turn it on

3) During the boot, press power for 10 seconds to force the tablet to power off

4) Now connect the USB cable to the PC while pressing tablet HOME button

5) While still pressing the HOME button and with the cable connected, press 3~5 times (or more) the Power button

 

If you do that a lot of times and your tablet is not recognized by PhoenixSuiteTry another computer. Let's hope something works.

Hi

Problem with bootloop now fixed by downloading custom firmware ONDA972-OPFT-2.0.1 zip file from Chinese site and installing from TF card in recovery coz nothing else worked but at least V972 now turns on. I stilll cannot use Phoenixsuite as all it does when I press upgrade is reboot the device and then says no device to upgraded and I have tried loads of times. Problem now is device not rooted so I cant restore it, and I can't reroot it even though I did have rootkeeper and I cant read chinese apps. I daren't put anything back on the tablet because if it locks up again I have wasted more hours. If anybody who reads this has any ideas would be much appreciated

Thanks again

Go to settings,security, permissions,and activate super user,root is embedded in firmware.

open toolbox go to build prop and change persist.sys.language to en .change timezone to Europe/London or similar depending where you are.and country i.e GB.

you should then be rooted and apps in english.

Hi Groundhogman

Many Thanks, Your advice got a few things sorted and taught me how to edit firmware but unfortunately Google Playstore didn't like it, probably because I changed country very quickly, and has crashed but I should be able to sort that. Anyway at least Tablet is now working as it has been driving me crazy for the past few days and I thought it was bricked. I still can't use Phoenixsuite to change firmware but will probably give Lost_World 2.0 firmware a go (new post today) thanks to your advice. Cheers
