Here is latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Onda V973 tablet (hardware V2) based on newest Onda firmware release version 3.2 dated 2013/07/03. This firmware actually uses the same version number as previous Onda release, but the build dates for kernel and Android system are more recent. It's very possible that previous firmware released in June was a pre-release and this new 3.2 is a final release.

 
 
Compared to firmware version 3.0 or older, this update brings many enhancements such as a faster boot (5 seconds !) smoother system and a reduced power consumption in stand-by mode.

 

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) ) #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jul 3 15:58:20 CST 2013

Android system: onda/fiber_onda974q963/fiber-onda974q963:4.2.2/JDQ39/20130703:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

 

 

Our rooted custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU 1.41 (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-v32_20130703-rooted0.zip

Flash with PhoenixSuite (tutorial)

 

After flashing the tablet, a Setup Wizard should display on first boot to configure your network, regional settings, etc… 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 (hardware V2) to test it.

Thanks for your feedback and sorry about this issue.

I'll have a look if I can find any changes Onda made between the two firmwares. In the meantime, I'm removing the download.
Cheers.

Nope, it's for the Onda V973 V2 hardware.

Everything very nice and thank you for this release but at the boot there is a pic with a girl (?!?!?) Why put someone's girlfriend or dream-girl for that matter on the boot? Please explain. 

 

I wish to install Whatsapp messenger and it is not displayed in Google play store, I tried through the browser and it tells me that the tablet is not compatible.  

Skype and Viber installed just fine so what is the fix?
