You can probably check yourself on the back of the tablet if the serial number mentions v3 or v4.
And custom rom for v3 is the same for v4.

Just don't buy this tablet. Save your money and get a Nexus or LG G Pad. The software on this Tab is horrible. It's really pitty because the screen is awesome. Unfortunately we won't get a good firmware or custom rom.

You can root it and also install custom Recovery or custom roms.
Latest custom Rom is Kitkat with ability of ocing till 2.0ghz.

No reason to compare.
This tablet is not Nexus or LG pad but costs also almost half money.
And yes its a pity that no custom kernel is out there, but still there are many ways to make this tablet much faster.
For example by using this script.

You are right you can't compare it with a good tablet. But my advice was to just skip this thing and spent more money for a better one.
I have already rooted and overclocked mine with Trickster Mod but it's still not usable as daily driver. I bought it in first place for reading PDFs at university, but scrolling in large documents is a pain. Now I only use it for watching some YouTube clips or a movie from my Plex server.

So whats the issue with it? With the specs it has shouldn't be a problem reading through documents?

I am not following here especially if you can wipe off all the chinese stuff and run just a stock KitKat version.

I just wanted to help people avoiding to make the same mistake I did. Of course the specs sound impressive but it seems that the software is not well optimized for the hardware. With a good Cyanogenmod Rom this tab could be a killer.

It's not as optimised as a CM, but Rozak's rom is free from bloatware and has some modifications to increase the responsiveness of the tablet.

Here is Kit Kat version:

The problem with this tablet is mainly the battery drain (it doesn't deep sleep) and the wifi off when screen is off.

I've found running battery doctor pro and ds battery saver help mitigate battery drain a bit.

Rozak's rom is good but until there is proper source there is no hope of CM11 and AMLogic aren't exactly famous for releasing source. And their own kernel seem to suck hard.

I'm tempted to trade mine in for a Cube Talk 9X, running unmolested android apparently.

Anyone fancy buying an Onda 975M for below retail value?
