Hello,

i have just yesterday got my onda v972, and after using it a few hours and shutting it down (completely), trying to boot it again, i seem caught in a kind of bootloop. When starting i see the quadcore logo, then the onda logo, and the onda-logo stays on indefinitely. Even after ~20 minutes, it doesn't boot ;/. Now, i've read around this thread and recognized that it seems that people do boot (stock?!?) recoveries up on this thing. The closest i've gotten to is using the homebutton-then-usb-then-5-power-presses trick to make it be recognized as a USB device on the computer ... it just isn't a ADB device, or anything else. I've read about this phoenix suite here ... is that the same as that nokia service suite?!

This is all a bit unclear to me ;(. If anyone could clearfiy to me: Whether phoenix is nokias phoenix || how to boot a (stock?!) recovery -- i'd be really REALLY glad!

Thanks!


I got to the stock recovery once by holding the back button and then hold the power button until onda displays then let go of both buttons.

onda v972 flashing

I have made a number of attempts with a view to flashing firmware by using PhoenixSuit but was not successful. In many occasions device driver was not properly installed (either Unknown Device in Device Manager or an exclamation mark before USB Device (VID_1f3a_PID_efe8) in Device Manager. In other occasions when device driver was properly installed as shown in Device Manager and flashing instructions were followed, PhoenixSuit claimed that "No Device attached yet".

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Can anyone help with the process to unbrick my V972. I tried to go to 1.32 and I must have touched the goofy power button. Now it will not fire up at all. Just a black screen. No matter what combo of buttons I push, hold, etc. Nothing seems to recognize it when i plug in USB.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Same thing happened to me. But I'm quite certain that Phoenix Suite said the upgrade was a success, and that I didn't accidentally press anything. Then, nothing, like you describe. It's not even recognized by the computer anymore. (When you try to start it in "upgrade mode" by holding home and pressing "power on" a few times.) Doesn't show up in the device manager, and I tried on my Linux computer, and it doesn't show up on lsusb.

Only install prosess is in chinese. Jsxltech.com/blogs/onda-forum has install instructions in english.
When done type the button "?" In right upper corner and update to newest version.
Thanks
