Installed fine.

Interface slower than 4.2.2, but I guess the A31 is seeing it's limit with such a modern android version + retina screen, only affect launcher and transition, setting app is very fast.

Only major issue I've found: after updating google search, google now launcher is corrupted, very small with blue background, unusable, a reboot fix this, or maybe sideloading the latest google now launcher might help.

Other than that, I've installed all my favorite apps without problems.

I downloaded it yesterday because my JB was becoming erratic. There was a little glitch with PhoenixSuite causing me to re-image my device twice. There was a little trouble on the boot up screen. The Allwinner logo wouldn't progress passed the boot screen. I just powered down and powered back up and it seems to be working fine the second time I re-imaged. Three was a slight lag at first, but once the "Google" initialization of the tablet was finished, things ran smoother. So far there are two apps not working properly: I don't get all the graphics with Yahoo mail and the widget for Google calendar is non existent. Those, as I've read, are specific to Kitkat not necessarily this .img.

Overall it seems to be working just fine. I can access everything and I've had no problem casting with either my chromecast or my other easycast dongle.

I'll update this once I've used it a little more.

But on the plus side... NO MORE CHINESE MODEL on the boot up.

THANK YOU!

OK, 24 hours later and the problems arise.

I first checked to make sure the image that I downloaded was for my version (v2).

I've twice done a factory reset.

There are 2 desktops pre-Screenshot_2014-05-18-11-38-29-1.pngImage Enlargerinstalled: Google and Onda. The problems occur with both.

 

1. Google Contact/ People is missing. There IS an option for a widget, but If I try to add it to me desktop, the contacts I search for aren't there.

2. Google Play forces shut with UI error.

3. After reboot, the apps I've downloaded disappear. Not just from home screen, but have been uninstalled from the device completely.

4. Gmail/Google won't sync. I get a red circle with arrows when I try to sync the account under the main tablet's settings. I've left an attachment.

 

Everything seems to revolve around the tablet initially logging into Google.

 

Help please.

Voglio dare un contributo con la mia esperienza, io sto usando KITKAT perché voglio capire bene quali sono i vantaggi.

Pro:
Ho riscontro un consumo di batteria minore rispetto alla 4.2.2; sembra che il WI-FI sia più reattivo e stabile; tolte le cineserie è più pulito; indiscutibile la comodità dei permessi di root che ti permette di fare come ti pare (specie la gestione tramite Xplore, della SD esterna).

Contro: 
Continua ogni tanto a bloccarsi per alcuni secondi; interfaccia pietosa perché si tenta di imitare IOS (tanto che ho installato un launcer aggiuntivo con cui mi trovo un po meglio); i Widget non si riescono ad avere pronti a schermo ma si devono eseguire; alcune app si bloccano.

Io non sono molto soddisfatto di questa KitKat, sicuramente meglio della versione originale ONDA, sicuramente sarà migliore della versione 4.2.2.

Terrò di sicuro ancora per un po questa KitKat sul mio V972-V2 se non altro "per rendere grazie ai ragazzi che hanno fatto il lavoro di root" , dopo le insistenti preghiere mie e di altri utenti su ARCTABLET, ma se non riscontrerò migliorie o motivi validi per tenere questa versione di Android, tornerò alla 4.2.2 che per quanto riguarda l'interfaccia a mio avviso va meglio. 

Ripeto non so se sia giusto dire che la KitKat 4.4.2 non va bene... però sono sicuro che al momento non mi soddisfa in pieno come pensavo. 

Ciao..

Sorry for the mistakes , but the text is translated with Google Translate

I want to contribute with my experience , I am using KITKAT because I want to understand what are the benefits .

Pros:
I have reflected a lower battery consumption compared to 4.2.2 ; it seems that the WI-FI is more responsive and stable ; removed chinoiserie is cleaner ; unquestionable comfort root permissions that allows you to do as you please (especially management by Xplore , the external SD ) .

Cons:
Continue to occasionally freeze for a few seconds ; interface pitiful because you try to imitate IOS ( so much so that I installed an additional launcer with which I find myself a little better) ; Widgets are not able to have ready -screen but you have to perform ; some app crashes.

I'm not very satisfied with this KitKat , certainly better than the original version ONDA , it will definitely be better than version 4.2.2 .

For sure I will keep this for a while KitKat on my V972 -V2 if nothing else " to give thanks to the guys who have done the work of root" , after my fervent prayers and other users on ARCTABLET , but if not riscontrerò improvements or compelling reasons to keep this version of Android, 4.2.2 will return to that as far as the interface goes better in my opinion .

Again I do not know if it's fair to say that the KitKat 4.4.2 is not good ... but I'm sure that when I do not fully satisfy as I thought.
