Anyone having USB problems? On the tablet, there are no options to access USB and connectivity with PC running W7 (64) just states 'no drivers can be found'

Thx

No problems.

You have a driver issue on your PC.

The tablet isn't properly recognized!

Yesterday I had a lot of FC in the Launcher followed by FCs in the android gui, the only way out of the loop I found was to hold down the power button and re-start. I have found that some apps just dont show up in the market or fail to install from APKs. I have tried USB on my W7 PC (32bit) and the device just does not show up, no errors though. I think I am going back to v3.3.1 (android 4.2.2). Maybe there will be an update of the KitKat firmware, I dont think its that stable now.

Edit: I turned my tablet off ready to upgrade and now it wont turn on. I have tried the procedutre with 10 clicks of the power button several times but Phoenix does not pick it up either. I think it may have died. Does anyone know how to get it to come back to life?

!! UPDATE 11.01.2014 !!

Try this patch, if you miss some apps on Google Play

Read the included pdf-manual,  before you apply the patch!

The patch probably won't work with geo-restricted apps!

Download Play Store patch

I found a partial answer searching the Internet, it worked for me sort of. The procedure is:

 

- Hold down the power button for about 7 seconds, you will hear a faint poping sound from the speakers.

- Wait for 3-4 minutes no less, I found a good 4 minutes is best.

- Press the power button to turn on as usual. (This did not work for me)

 

I started PhoenixSuite and tried the 10 clicks of the power button while holding home and I managed to flash to v3.3.1 (Android 4.2.2), I think I will stick with this version until a newer 4.4 firmware is availible. Hope this helps someone.

I have similar experience. Anyway I don't want to roll back to 3.3.1 and install everything from the beginning.

Official 4.4 from Onda should be released soon so I think I could update FW without formatting.

This is never a good idea and can cause unpredictable behaviour...
Better use TitaniumBackup to restore after flashing.

 

The current firmware itself ist very stable.

I had no fc's or other issues, since flashing it two weeks ago, but I use only "standard apps", like Tunein, Titanium Backup, Spotify, Browser, and a few other.
I am also running a webserver with PHP and Mysql 24h on the Onda.
It has not even a battery anymore...Smile

 

My guess is, that most problems are caused by incompatible apps (or flashing without formatting).

Kitkat is relatively new and most (smaller) apps have not been updated for Kitkat until now.

I always format when upgrading but I think i will wait for a newer version of the KitKat release.

Does someone have backup of sample videos and images that were formerly stored on Onda?

They disappeared when I did 1st reflash but I'd like to have them.

Sorry for off topic.

I'am 99% sure, this release is the final version.

Because Onda has now released the 4.4 for all their devices.

Have a look here

The 4.4 for the V972_V1 was just released first, because it's one of the most popular devices.

I need a little help.

I applied the last patch for Google Play, and result is that When I go to Play Store the app cannot find the list of installed applications in order to check if an update is available.

Any ideas?

Thanking you in advance,

John.

I guess you've missed one step from the instructions.

Check again, if you've stopped and deleted everything, like I wrote it in the manual.
