    • Hi -

      My v972 has suddenly become no responsive to touch. Sometimes the tablet won't even boot into the Google OS, I just see all the Onda driver icons blinking (screen before booting into OS). But when it does occasionally make it to the Google OS, it's not responsive to touch. Any suggestions?

      Here is the SN from the back: v972QBD3v1a00646

    • I've just received my Onda v972 last night, it was working fine but if the tablet went into the sleep mode more than 2 secs, I can use power button to wake it up. I need to click on the power button a long time many time to turn the tablet back on.

      Then I found that there was a message about the update of the firmware from v2 to v3 and to android 4.2.2. So I click the update button and upgrade it successfully to V3.0 with android 4.2.2. But the same problem still occurs.

      Please tell me how to fix it. Thank you so much!

  • From SOLVED: Update Onda V972 to Android 4.2 (ROM v2 --> v3) at 6/6/13 12:23 AM
    • The problem:
      When trying to update, the file is downloaded completely (363 MB) but then displays an error message about verification failure.
      The solution:
      After downloading is finished - do not click to update.
      Just turn off the device and start it in recovery mode (I used ROM toolbox to reboot into recovery but there should be a hardware key combination to do that too). Then apply an update from TF, choose the file that resides in the root directory of the SD card: ota.zip
      Make sure you have enough battery and the device is plugged to the power.
      It will take 10-15 minutes for it to update - it worth it!
      That's what worked for me, not taking any responsibility if you brick your tablet and blah blah blah...
      Good luck

      I bought an Onda V972 Quad Core A31 (hardware version 2).
      Fully charged battery (I charge the battery using the DC adapter) lasts 1 hour in standby mode (I hit once the power button to put table in stand by mode).
      I have reflashed official firmware version 3.0 multiple times but the problem remains.
      Is there something else I shoul try?
      Is it a battery problem?

    • I reset my V972 to factory settings because I sold it. However, it reset everything to Cinese!!!!!! I downloaded the English version of the manual that you supplied on the questions page. But, there is no mention of setting languages. I even found the Chinese label ( 设置显示语言 ); but, All I get is an empty grid. There are no language choices!!!!! How do I set it back to English and factory settings?
    • You can set language.
      Settings -> Language & keyboard -> Select language, choose the Language you need.
      you can find 设置显示语言:Settings -> Language & keyboard -> Select language
      I email you the manual, They are same manual

    • Dear Onda, I've just received my tablet yesterday, then I try to charge it usi_ng the power adaptater and the cable powered in the box. First strange thing in more than 18h of charge, no way to get a charge screen : sometime I can get a "onda from ..." screen, sometime a "quad code..." icon but most of time nothing. So it looks like if the tablet is not charged : power adapter and tablet are completly cold.
      The tablet is not reconized by computer, and the poweradapter is woring fine. So my conclusions:
      1/ I do something wrong but it's working fine.... so what to do ?
      2/ there is a contact issue somewhere between cable and power adpator or ca-ble and tablet but I can't test it with another cable.
      3/ there is something wrong with the tablet itself.
      I can't load a new firmware or something like that because it's never started....
      many thanks to help me,

    • My wife and I have both a V972. Two months agoo I updated the firmware to V1.35. Today I got a message from Update that Android 4.2 was available and my wife got a message that a new firmware was available. It was strange that the same tablets showed different messages, but I tried nevertheless to update both tablets tot the update that was recommended. BOTH UPDATES FAILED!!!!!

      On the tablet were I tried to update the firmware the downloading completed, but the installing failed. Now it don't show the new firmware at update anymore! On my tablet downloading started, but stopped at 29.61 MB. After that I got permanent the message that a google process stopped. So again I must re-install the firmware for the third or fourth time.

      You answers on this forum are rarely adequate. When Someone ask you which firmware must be downloaded (V1, V2, V3) you sent him the link tot your download site but NOT an answer to his (and mine) question. I am NOT satisfied with the way that Onda treats her clients. I think it is a bloody shame. I will CERTAINLY NOT recommend Onda to family and friends.

      I have WiFi downloaded and also tried USB side loaded firmware update both V2.0 and V3.0 on my Onda V972 V2.
      It is not possible to unpack and install the locally stored rar file, because I recieve this message when I try:
      "Checking the package...
      Vefifying failed, please check your package"
      I have also done factory resetting.
      What is next for me to do?

    • You must install the correct firmware version V2. not V3.

    • Hi!
      I got my Onda v 972 today and here's the problem: it won't charge properly. It might, for about 3 seconds, then stops. When it is charging, it jumps from "charging" to "connected, not charging", to simply "low battery". And it goes up to only 9%. When it did seem that it was charging, the result was that it wouldn't turn on - low battery again. Is there anything I can do to solve this?
      Thanks
    • Please check the charger,
      The tablet pc charge with DC charger,
      NOT USB.
      Thank you.

      Plesase help me.
    • We have seldom met such wifi problem.
      1.Maybe WiFi routing problem.
      2.Maybe the firmware problem
      3.The software problem.
      You can test the tablet pc with wifi.

    • I cannot connect to my unsecured wifi. There is a circular arrow icon at the top of the screen that says to push the WPS push button on my router but there is no wps push button on my router
    • 1) Make sure you input the correct password of your wireless router;
      2) Stop any other wireless devices which connects to the router;
      3) Clear any IP/MAC filter in router security setting, or reset the
      router to factory mode;
      4) Reset the tablet to factory mode: Setting-Privacy-Factory Data Reset
      5) the newest firmware to reboot the tablet.

    • Hi thanks for your reply, but you have not helped me as your answers are very brief
      I have downloaded V2.0.1 twice and both times my V972 has failed to update, saying update failed in the root screen, so I am not doing anything wrong as I have updated before, so its either the firmware or my pad. Furthermore Google play has stopped working and comes up with an error, saying that Google Play failed to start, all other programs like YouTube are still working well
      Lastly you owe me an HDMI cable, as my pad was pre-ordered can you please post this off to me
      Regards
      Gary
    • Maybe something wrong when you install firmware.Please check it.
      Did you try to reset it ?

    • Hi
      Thanks for your reply, but please understand the question
      I have downloaded V2.0.1 twice through WiFi, each time it starts to update through OTG, my pad switches off and then I get a message from the Android root screen saying that update has failed and I have to reset the system. So effectively my V972 fails to update to v2.0.1
      Please advise,
      Why is the update failing once it is in my V972 pad
      When this update of 54MB has downloaded onto this pad, which folder does it download into? I can then try OTG via local tab, which will save me downloading file again?
      When will you have V 4.22 a tested version without problems?
    • Yes.The android 4.2 firmware will be released soon.
      Maybe something wrong when you install firmware.
      Thank you.

Would be great if it actually worked Review by Jon
Star
Hardware is great but the firmware makes this useless. I bought mine in March. It started running v slowly as soon as I installed some standard apps. I did a factory reset and installed the latest firmware (at the time, v1.35). It worked ok initially but then the same thing happened. In both cases, connecting to wi-fi was next to impossible, very poor reception, something wrong with the hardware/firmware. I then updated to v2.0, and then it bricked. The screen is now permanently black, and it is just an expensive paperweight. I tried reflashing the firmware but it won't connect to phoenixsuite; phoenixsuite throws errors in chinese that I can't read. So far I've contacted Onda 3 times and have not had any help at all.

Accetable performance, beatiful display Review by iniel
Star
I bought it for the display, as I don't think widescreen are optimal for tablets (unless you are watching videos). And I have not been disappointed! The screen has (imho) a perfect width/height ratio (esp. when using an on-screen keyboard), and it is, of course a perfect resolution.

That said, the reason this machine is cheap; everything is trimmed to the bones - no bluetooth, no gps and a tiny battery is obvious, but I've also have a feeling that a memory bus or controller is sub-par, as it has a tendency to stall whenever starting a new program. So while the quad core processor have been able to run any game/app I've tried, it does feel sluggish while loading. And it does not seem uncommon for apps to crash while starting. But I guess you get what you pay for.

However, when loaded everything runs fine.

As for video, I'm mostly using the bundled "4k video" player, as it supports hw acceleration. Neither VPlayer or MX Player seem to used hw for the (few) videos I have tried (mostly 720p/h.264). They still play fine, but the video quality seem better with hw accel (haven't really tested thoroughly)..

While I would have paid for a larger battery/better memory controller, that was not an available option.

I chose to focus on the major annoyances in this review, so it might have come out as negative - but I am not. I really like the device, and all in all I am satisfied because it does fulfill my wish; a very good screen! I will probably buy the next Onda version (probably an 8") when it comes out. Especially if there is an option for better battery/bluetooth/gps etc! :-)

Apps I recommend; "Swiftkey Tablet Keyboard" to replace the build-in keyboard and "TetherGPS" to share the GPS position from an android phone with the tablet.

Great if like to tinker Review by Das
Star
I read many, many great reviews for this tablet and bought thinking I was going to get a Nexus-quality device for half the price. Unfortunately it hasn't been quite so easy. I am not sure who is writing all these great reviews, but would say the following:

Onda is releasing new firmware almost weekly to correct bugs with this device which just came out. It has taken a lot of my time to figure out how to load the firmware to update the system and then re-configure the tablet. I will have to do this more in the future as there are still bugs and new firmware being release. Key point -- you are an early adopter if you buy this tablet.

My biggest problems: out of the box, the tablet froze repeatedly just trying to open the app drawer. Being a 'generic' tablet, many apps were also not available for download in the play store (common things, like FaceBook). The wifi wouldn't stay connected to either of my 2 routers that my 5 other devices have strong connections with. It lasts only a short time on battery, maybe 3-4 hours.

From a hardware perspective, the tablet build quality is good. It is lightweight yet made of non-plastic materials. The screen is very nice. Bad things -- the power button is horribly placed, you need to find the right case to protect it when in landscape as the button is right where your hand brushes it. The speakers are bad, you have to turn them to max to hear very well at all, and even then the sound quality is low.

So after installing latest firmware, following many instructions on forums, replacing the stock launcher with Nova, getting a better case, updating my router firmware and many other things the tablet is working acceptably. I am fairly technical so I am happy I learned something, but if you aren't ready to potentially invest a lot of time in tinkering with the tablet to get it stable you might consider a different solution.

Overall -- I am happy with the tablet for <$250 (and now that it is substantially tweaked), but if I had paid more I would be very upset and would have returned it.
