    It is all what you expect from a cheap tablet as this.
    I realy like it for what I am using it for.
    It helps me to do my work, I use Tethering on my phone to make conection to the Internet.
    It is realy fast and the graphics are great.

    The only thing I dont like is the battery drain.
    My wife's Cube last about 8 hours and the Onda just about 4,5.

      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!

      TWRP based on lastest 2.4.4.0 for Onda V972 by ankar84

      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.

      Differences between TWRP and CWM Recovery

      • Displays the time (time zone adjusted separately), battery.
      • Saving settings of the recovery on microSD-card.
      • Built in Terminal Emulator.
      • The ability to connect the two cards to the computer as a USB-carriers.

      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?
      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!
