yepp, there is definitely a bug, which prevents /system from mounted as rw.

I will check this.

Thx vel2000. I know basics but don't know how to fix it by my self.  

After two days of use, I have to say that it's cool to have android 4.4, but Onda must definitely have some work, IMO a little underdeveloped

Any chance to have a rooting script? 

Like "ROOT_Limpieza_Logo_V3.zip" that we can run from local update?

There changed the file however they did not change the description. It still says beta. The previous file that was up for download. on dec 28 was named v972_v1_v4.4demo.rar

 

the new file that is up for download is named V972 Core4_v4.4_v1.rar

 

so either they made a mistake and did not edit the description or the new file is just a new beta.

Hope it's still beta. Observed some stability issues - unexpected termination of particular running processes. It didn't occur on 3.3.1 FW.

adaway/adblocker need write access to "/system/etc/hosts" but can't get it

 

It seems that there are some "security mechanisms" built-in (or in Phoenix?).

  • if you change something in the "boot" partition, the Rom is not flashable!
  • unpacking and repacking "system" (even without any changes) leads to the ro/rw issues.

I am working on this.

Big problem trying to up-grade to the working 4.4 kitkat, cannot get the Onda 972 v1 to upgrade, it can't find the USB via Phoenix Suit, tried on 1.0.6 & new 1.8 same problem, tried also in two modes, at the quick boot & cold boot, press & hold Home button, install the USB in the PC, hit power button, (while holding down the home button) medium to fast over 10 times, nothing :(

 

OK sorry guys my Laptop seems to have USB issues either Hardware or software, will install W7 again tomorrow, then we will see if its software, but in the mean time, used my sons vista PC, work like a charm install the up-dated kit-kat .:)
