Here is a official Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Onda V973 (hardware V1) tablet.

  

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_onda974q9/fiber-onda974q9:4.2.2/JDQ39/20130523: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_v973_V1-422-v30_20130523-rooted4.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 V973 to test it.

The method below should work, but it's probably worth getting PhoenixSuit to work as flashing latest V3.0 brings  a better system (more stable and after interface)

I asume your download is corrupt. ;-)

You only need to download V2-Firmwares if the middle of the serial number of your V973 contains "V2".

Thanks Admin.  Works great, experiencing no problems with what you have done.

 

I do have a small problem which seems to come from the original release by Onda......the Thai input keyboard is missing the centre section of key labels.  Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?  I don't want to go back to 4.1.1 :-(

My Tablets:

Nexus 10 16gb

Onda V973 16gb

This works great... but.. Does anyone know how to enable multiple users on 4.2.2 on Onda tablets? I have the V973 v1 flashed with this custom firmware but the option to add users is not there. Please help.

Thanks.

To get multiple users enabled and see Users entry in settings I've added the following entry into /system/build.prop file:

fw.max_users=5 (this sets max users to 5, change it if you need to)

I've added the above line as the last line into the file.

To modify build.prop file you can use the Rom Toolbox app, you can find it in playstore.

Once installed, run it and navigate to Root Browser, then go into /system folder, edit and save the build.prop file (this makes the setting persistent across reboots).

After reboot you will see the new Users entry into settings and you will hopefully able to add new users.

I've successfully created a second user on my v973, the only thing that doesn't work is if I try to change  account image: the system settings instantly crash and exits .....

 

NB: be careful when access the filesystem as root, mistakes in modifying system files could brick your tablet ....

 

Thanks admin, all is working great !
