Great work admin!
I was majorly dissapointed that there is no multi user support enabled in this firmware, untill I saw this:
Works like a charm!!!
P.S. For multi user to survive a reboot, you also need to install "Universal Init.d" and add a script to /system/etc/init.d containing "setprop fw.max_users 8"
For multi users support to enable and make it persistent after reboot you could follow the procedure described by fabrav64 in the onda-v973-v1-hardware-android-4-2-2-jelly-bean-root-custom-firmware-v3-0-2013-05-23 topic(follow the below link to get it):
I did it on my v972-v1 and works very well
My Onda V972 V1 32GB is performing much better with the latest ROM here. Thanks Admin. I have tried every versions of ROM as and when they are released. I always use full wipe in PhonixSuit just to make sure that I have a clean start each time. Every time I do a wipe the whole of my 32GB storage (not just the system partition) would be wiped out! So all my songs, pics etc. are gone each time. Is this normal for this device or am I doing something wrong? Any advice would be much appreciated.
I not to sure what your saying, but do you mean your 32GB micro card gets wiped ?, if this is the case, I take card out before firmware up-date, then just simply put it back when all is up to speed again 🙂
Dear Bazk, Thanks for your response. Sorry I meant the internal built-in storage, not the extsd. The storage space is actually only about 26GB after all the overhead taken by the system. I don't understand why the program needs to wipe this user storage area, which contain no programing codes at all. I never had such problem rooting my phone. Both the internal storage (sdcard) and external storage (extsd) always remained intact regardless of how many times I wipe the phone with different ROM's.
Sorry in that case I don't know why, maybe a requirement of the Chinese models tablets !
Does anyone no what te differene in v972 versions ? i.e. v1, v2 & v3 ? my understanding would be v3 is the better but on the other hand v1 would have better components than the newer v2 & v3 but could be wrong ?
thnx for all the nice work.
When will it be possible to update from the update app that comes with the stock software? (arrow up)
Just seen this on: http://www.onda-tablet.com/news/
We receive our Onda factory message: Onda A31 Quad Core Tablet PC (Onda V973/V972/V971, Onda V818 Mini, Onda V813/v812/v811/v801,Onda V712/V711s) will support Android 4.2.2 V3.0 Firmware OTA update from May 30,2013. You can update to Android 4.2.2 V3.0 Firmware buy Local Update Key,please keep WIFI on when connect.Thank you for your attention.
I presume this is what they are saying, we can up-date via the "arrow up icion" !!!!
I have an issue with the tablet. If the tablet is off (switched off) and I connect the charger, the green charger image shows on the screen and stays there as long as it is connected. This will burn the screen easy.
I have to turn it on and then connect the charger, this way the screen sleeps.
I've just installed this version and I was able to really use V972 for the first time since I bought it. Stock browser is responsive, fast and reliable. And everything I tried to run works fine.
Battery seems to drain a little more now, but of course now I'm using the tablet a lot. It was unusable before.
I was wondering why the i/o scheduler is set to "deadline". May be it would be better to set to nop. Also the battery could improve by changing governor to "conservative" or "on demand".
Thanks for this great firmware!
i had to return to last version. this is very bad . it's not calibrate . it's upside down and blocked
You have downloaded the firmware for V973 by mistake. You should have picked the V972 v1 or v2. I did the same mistake and re-download the V972 firmware. Now my is working very well and i am very pleased.
Did anybody try to use external usb DAC with OTG cable?
Im experimenting a little bit,using this latest firmware and when connecting DAC I got it recognized by device if Im looking thru some of OTG helper aplication. But I can not find way to activate it in android itself.
Im also wondering if anybody tried to use some bluetooth usb adapter?
I try all of this to get sound transferred on some way to external amlifier. Audio jack itself is very tricky becouse it need to be longer than standard
has anybody tested the HDMI output? Does it work? In case it works: What resolution do you get, if it works? And is the output just the video, or like in 4.1 2.0 the full screen incl. status bar? thxs
Hi I've just connected my v972 V1 to a TV and it's not filling the whole screen anymore. It looks like it can't display as widescreen, so it displays in the middle with black borders around.
I'm looking for a way to change the HDMI output settings, any help, please?
