Here is a official Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Onda V973 (hardware V2) 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_onda974q963/fiber-onda974q963:4.2.2/JDQ39/20130523:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

 

Our rooted custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU 1.32 (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_V2-422-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.

Flashed today, everything working ok. The only problem I am having is low volume and poor quality audio. I suspect this is a common problem, possibly due to the speakers  as the headphone output is ok . Still  a good tablet for the price .

Yes, if an audio boost of 25% to 50% could be incorporated into the next firmware it would save this tablet for me. I bought this for my kids to watch movies but the volume of the speakers is really disappointing.

Dear Sir I felt very nice to see this dounload for onda v973 tablet. But i request you to mention the step by step procedure of how to root Onda V973. as i'm totally a fresher and dont want to take any risk of sending the tablet back to china from india for repairing. I 'm fed up of the chinese applications which by default are loaded in the tablet i want to install all english application.

 

request you to please kindly upload the step by step procedure.

Tried clicking on the Pheonix flashing tool download link and got a security error (even though I am logged in). Am I missing something? Is there another way to get it so I can get the firmware upgrade for my Onda V973?.

Thanks

 To Admin.

 

 I have installed the new stock firmware v3.2 on my V973(V2),  It is smoother and the 4 second fast boot is great. Will we be getting a KASTY custom rom for this new firmware for V973(V2)?  Thanks in anticipation.

For the past hours, I've spent quite some time building custom firmware for Onda devices, new firmwares are done in priority for devices where we have supporting users or high demand from the public. 

Cheers.
