Here is a new Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Onda V972 (hardware V2) tablet, it's still called V3.0 but has a more recent system and kernel than previous release (20130515)

  

Firmware build information

Linux Kernel:  Linux version 3.3.0 (lgm@SzExdroid5) (gcc version 4.6.3 20120201 (prerelease) (crosstool-NG linaro-1.13.1-2012.02-20120222 - Linaro GCC 2012.02) ) #28 SMP PREEMPT Tue May 21 11:51:35 CST 2013

Android system: onda/fiber_onda978q9p6/fiber-onda978q9p6:4.2.2/JDQ39/20130522:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

 

 

Our rooted custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU 1.30 (free version)
  • system default setup English
  • removed most Chinese and unnecessary applications
  • Google Play Store fixes so more application are visible/compatible
  • updated busybox v1.21.0.git (2012-11-29)
  • Unix like init.d boot scripts support, more details on init.d scripts here
  • changed permissions on external sdcard to allow write access

  

Download: kasty-onda_v972_V2-422-v30_20130522-rooted.zip

Flash with PhoenixSuite (tutorial)

 

After flashing the tablet, a Setup Wizard should display on first boot to configure your network, regional settings… If the wizard does not appear, just disconnect your USB cable from the tablet, make a short press on the power button to turn off the screen. After the screen is turned of, press the power button for a short time again to power the tablet, the Setup wizard should appear.

 

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify this custom firmware works as I don't have a Onda V972 (hardware V2) to test it.

Hi,

 

my device ONDA V972-v2 (ROM KASTY 4.2.2 v30 2013-05-22)

  • I can't install with Arctools neither TWRP or CW-R
  • WIFI with FreeBox is OK
  • SKYPE video is OK but voice only works with headphones (I can't hear speakers)
  • Video MX Player with H/W codec is Ok
  • Market is Ok
  • Front and main Cameras are Ok
  • It's for the moment the best ROM I tried

Are you able to Install TWRP with Arctools ?

Excellent work best ROM released so far! I have been looking at init.d scripts for better battery life if/when I find any that improve what I am getting ATM I will report here (currently getting 3-4hrs Max with general usage, browsing streaming and watching videos WiFi on continually) 

I have noticed that the sound is quite poor when not using earphones, as many have reported, but seems as if only one of the speakers is working, one nearest the USB port. Anyone else seem to have this issue? Thanks :-)

Sorry I have no solution, but I can confirm that both cameras are working on my ONDA V972-v2 (ROM KASTY 4.2.2 v30 2013-05-22)

I've had the same problem with a camera.... "Gallery stopped working", also the touch screen seemed over-sensitive and I couldn't scroll properly.

In my case, the problem was with the hardware version, I have installed V1 and the camera is working perfect.

Check the hardware version of your tablet, and flash with V1.

 

Hope this helps

Just got the camera problem figured out. Any V1 tablet with the firmware upgraded to V2 previously will still considered as V1 tablet in this latest 4.2.2 upgrade. Flash the tablet again with the V1 update.

Did this and camera is working fine now but battery drain is still fast. From full charge to about 50% in slightly over an hour. My guess battery can last only 3 hours under normal usage.

Totally correct m8, the battery life s dismal, Onda needs to release the source code for the Firmware so that someone )here) can make a proper firmware to utilize the power management on A31 chips :(

DavieP  I have a Onda V972 v2 by its serial number and low and behold i had the same problem using the v2 firmware but when i loaded up the v1 firmware all was ok. would like to have a custom v1 firmware but please leave in flash player as you took it out of the v2 firmware.

Hi, I flashed the rom on my Archos 97 Platinum HD (which should be a rebadgen Onda V972.

 

Everything is OK except the camera that does not work. It says me "Unfortunately, gallery has stopped".

 

You could tell me: why the hell did you install this firmware on the device that is not an Onda V972?

 

Reply: Archos stock firmware sucks a lot, and with this the tablet is perfect except for the camera that does not work.

 

I tried to download the stock firmware from archos website, in order to find the camera app in the zip, but I did not find it. I would like to replace it for seeing if it works.

 

Any idea? The tablet is Allwinner A31 based, and has 2GB RAM (usable: 1.5 [why?[).

 

Is there a possibility to make work the camera?

 

Well, it's almost ok for me that it does not work, I probably never use it to take photos...but well, it is better if everything works...

 

Thanks in advance for any reply.

This thread is firmware for the v2 hardware, usually if you have this problem using the other firmware fixes it, try the v1 firmware  http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/onda-v972/onda-v972-v1-hardware-android-4-2-2-jelly-bean-root-custom-firmware-v3-2-1-final-2013-07-26/
