Hello, Everybody!
CAUTION : I'm not responsible for any damage to your device.Use at your own risk
I want to introduce to you a Team Win Recovery Project 2.4.1.0 for Onda V972.
I think it will be usefull and for Onda V812, and V971, maybe other A31 tablets.
That TWRP works on 32 Gb version of Onda V972.

Installation TWRP Recovery on Onda V972
Before installing TWRP, you need to get root. All latest stock firmware comes with root, you need only install Superuser or SuperSU from Play Market
Download the Onda_V972_TWRP.zip from that post and extract it to any folder on your computer.
Copy all three files from your computer internal disk (ONDA_MID on you computer and /sdcard on tablet)
Install the application Terminal on the tablet and run it.
From the terminal emulator enter the following command:
Code:
su
Press Enter. Allow access to the application or SuperSU SuperUser
Code:
busybox sh /sdcard/install-recovery.sh
Press Enter. This command installs new recovery to your tablet.
Code:
busybox sh /sdcard/reboot-recovery.sh
Press Enter. This will load the device mode recovery.
You can also use the standard way of loading in recovery - While the tablet is off press Home button and holding it press the Power button untill 4 core logo appears.

If something goes wrong, you need to flash the firmware via Stock PhoenixSuit and during flashing select "YES" to the question about formatting.

It is not bug free version, there is a error: Unable to mount '/recovery' I will try to fix all bugs.
I repeat: Use it on your own risk!

Thanks to Dees_Troy and all TWRP team for great work!
Thanks to darkrickpr from slatedroid for base TWRP
Thanks to hariprasadiit for his CWM port and his post.

Probably yes, a mistake was made.
If you load the default recovery, the installation on TWRP was not successful.
Did you get done after command busybox sh install-recovery.sh?
Do you got root?
Please, do screenshots of installation process and post them here.

But don´t mount the external sdcard, and for the developers is very much important.
Can you review this, please?
Sorry for my english ;)

TWRP_Onda_v972_ver02

Hi again.
After various checks, really mount internal memory like external.
Where say "using internal memory" show the contents of external SD.
not if I explain well...
Hi, Steve!
I take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent work SuperNova!
As regards that TWRP, I told, that it`s like an alpha version with a lot of bugs, and not everything working propertly. I just tested installing custom rom (SuperNova 3.1 and Iberica v.2) and it`s worked. And on my forum I asked people who have 32 Gb version of tablet if they can to install custom on their tablet, and they confirmed, that it`s work pretty good.
Just want to clarify a bit more on that as is currently working of that alpha version of TWRP.
When you boot into TWRP without external microSD card your internal memory (/sdcard on tablet and ONDA_MID on computer) will be Internal Storage in Mount menu of TWRP
When you boot into TWRP with external microSD card it will mount like a Internal Storage again, and there is no tablet real /sdcard mounted.
I also would like to note that in the Mount menu, item Mount SDCard will not work! Never! Now we are working on fix that problem.
But now, I made a new version, lets call it TWRP_Onda_v972_ver02 and it can mount both ext-sd and internal memory. But ext-sd you need to mount manualy, and we are working on that too.
In new version:
Internal Storage is a internal tablet memory (/sdcard on tablet and ONDA_MID on computer) Mounts at /sdcard
SD-Ext is a External microSD card, don`t forget to mount it manualy. Mounts at /sd-ext

Thanks ankar84! It really had been so helpful and I had been able to install both SN & Iberica successfully :good:. Can you please guide how to update the new recovery on the earlier one. Will the new recovery overwrite the earlier one by simple installation?
Thanks in advance!!

Hi, aryanitinkumar!
New recovery always overwrite the earlier one, so there is no big manual about installing new TWRP on old TWRP.
Today I compiled a new TWRP version for Onda V972 based on lastest stable TWRP 2.4.4.0

The internal and external memory mounts properly.
The internal memory is mounted in /sdcard
External memory is installed in the /external_sd
You can store backups on both the internal and the external memory.
External card mounted automatically.
Checked the backup and restore - worked great!


But now I publised on 4pda.ru to 32Gb version owners test it on their tablets. If everything will be good, I will publish it here!

Hi everybody, I do need some help. A few days ago, the tablet badly cusched. After restarting it, I noticed some application were missing, so I restarted again and got the green Emergency screen...

I wiped the tablet with PhoenixSuit and reinstalled the rom and everything went fine, but now every time I restart the tablet it looks like \cache and \data are wiped. That is, if I change settings or install any application and restart the tablet, these are all missing as if the tablet has just been flashed new. This happens with every rom I tried to flash. I confirm that I have no problem in accessing the recover (both stock and CWM).

As you can guess the tablet in these conditions is useless, any suggestion will be very appreciated!

Well. On my main forum 4pda.ru nobody wanted to test latest stable version of TWRP. Apparently everyone is busy updating the firmware to version 2.0. So, I decided to publish TWRP stable version here. But, please note, I have no positive results of using this version of TWRP for 32 GB version of the tablet.

Can't download:

Mega is for chrome browser only and Onda is not compatible for download

I registered to yandex, I see the file but don't find a way to get it on the tablet..... frustrating
