Maybe you don't have a V1, look at the serial number on the back of your tablet, there should be a single "V" followed by a number, that's your version.

Strange...

Try flashing it again, but this time make sure to answer "Yes" when  it ask you to do a "mandatory format"

Getting Improved Battery Performance for Onda V972

This will improve your battery performance to minimum of 4hrs under heavy use:

 

1. Go to settings and then click display

2. Under the display, change your brightness to zero, mark all the options under Smart Colour and Intelligent display. Make the Front Size - Normal and the Sleep set at 30 sec. or 1minutes

3. Download Density Changer from the Market and change your DPI to 264 and reboot your tablet.

 

I have done this and my battery performance has improved from less than 2hrs to 4hrs of heavy use. I think this is fair for the 7000mah battery inside the Onda v972.

 

And please do not expect the Onda v972 battery to last 10hrs! Ipad 3/4 has 12000mah battery inside it with its retina display at 264 dpi. 

Better alternatives can also be suggested to enable us get the best of the tablet.

You can change properties in build.prop in lcd_density , you can change number 320 ( default ) to 264

Thanks for some positive steps to try to increase battery life.

This gives some options when you require longer battery life.

Personally, I prefer the brightness and sharpness and icon size of Kasty ROM but it depends I suppose on what you use your tablet for.

I also agree that there will be a limit to improvements in battery life because of the relatively small output of 8000maH.

This is going to sound like a stupid question - but here goes.....

 

Why does lowing the DPI improve battery life?

I have a version v2 as my serial number but only V1 firmware works so give it a try and load V2 and see what happens.

I think Onda have their serial numbers mixed up. DavieP

THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!  THANK YOU!!!!

My 6 month sojourn with this inept company has experienced incredible angst. Although they are making efforts to approve their firmware....It is still sloggy, unresponsive and trashy.

 

I downloaded ONDA's firmware and initially it seemed to be speedy and responsive. Added just a few apps: Gmail,Flipboard, Feedly...Currents (which doesnt work at all....continually crashes),etc..... and the machine has become over time incredibly non-responsive to touch, slower and really unusable. They would be out of business here in the USA in a matter of weeks. They really have second-rate tech guys handling the key elements of the firmware. Think of Apple, Samsung, etc....and how quickly and responsive they are to making sure that their products work as advertised as quickly as possible. 

I have sent them dozens of emails over the past 6 months and they write back telling me about: Wait for firmware....

I have a Nexus 7 which works beautifully! It is speedy and responsive and apps never crash. It is my go-to tablet while the V972 has sat in its cover on the dining room table.

I just download the latest KASTY....and it truly is a ROCKET; with the basic apps that I listed above working beautifully....although I havent tried Currents yet....

Ive had some issues with Chrome browser closing (interesting), but since I can re-open quickly not an issue. I suppose that if Chrome continues to give me problems I will try the firefox browser which FLIES on my Nexus 7.

I am hopeful that battery life can be extended.....

Can anyone venture a guess as why Onda's firmware has slowed down so much ? I wonder what the Chinese apps are doing to prevent the unit from responding and working correctly?

I love the quick on/off......

 

I will be making a donation and I appreciate all of the work that YOU have done that Onda hasnt.....You must have better and smarter Tech guys doing your firmware!

 

Thanks again....!!!Cool
