    Tablet / Device:
    Onda V701
    Updated 29.01.13

    Works on all Onda Tablets including new Quad-Core tablets, for VI40 Ultimate 4.1.1 go to bottom of guide.

    New instructions PLEASE read carefully, if you are unsure just post what files you have in the firmware package, which tablet and which firmware it is currently running.

    Please note most Onda Tablets come Pre-Rooted, download the file below, it contains Superuser and Root Explorer. Once done open the zip file and put them both on your SDcard and install Superuser first then Root Explorer, if successful you can delete the chinese apps using Root Explorer.

    To install the PlayStore - First copy Phonesky.apk to your SDcard then using root explorer go to sdcard/external_sdcard and press and hold Phonesky.apk until menu shows and select copy, go back to system/app and paste it there, now press and hold Phonesky.apk for menu and select permissions, change them to RW-R-R, now press Phonesky.apk to install once done reboot.

    Superuser-RootExplorer-PlayStore- http://www.mediafire.com/?54fh5liiz1kb9i7


    FIRMWARE SECTION

    If you don't have your Firmware file then download yours from here - http://www.onda.cn/Support/Search.aspx

    Open the Firmware zip file you have then follow the step which relates to the Firmware zip file's contents.

    If it contains a USB program and a Resource.zip follow STEP 1

    If it contains a USB program and a .IMG file follow STEP 2

    If it contains Update.zip/Patch.zip etc follow STEP 3

    STEP 1

    The USB program needs to be run with administrators privileges on Windows xp/7 32bit, copy the USB folder to your desktop then copy the Resource zip file in to the USB folder and run the USB program, you can change the language in the top left of main window, now select CONFIG tab and choose Import Update and point it to the resource zip file, then click START, once done follow root section.

    STEP 2

    Download this file - SU-RootKeeper.zip

    You need to be on ICS firmware as this is pre-rooted then open the SU-Rootkeeper zip file and copy the SuperSU and OTA-Root_keeper apk' to your SDcard, then make sure the WiFi is set up and using the tablets "File manager" go to the external SDcard and install SuperSU.apk and update if it asks to do so, now install OTA-Root_keeper.apk.

    Run Root-Keeper and make sure the boxes are ticked to say you have Root, then select to "BACK-UP ROOT" once done select "TEMP UN-ROOT" then exit Root-Keeper. You can now update to Jellybean using either the USB flash program or OTA and once done run Root-Keeper again and select "RESTORE ROOT".

    Now download this file http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?bbuqt6rwxou7cw2

    Open the zip file and copy Root Explorer to your SDcard and using the tablets File manager go to external SDcard and install it, now you can uninstall all the chinese apps using Root Explorer.

    STEP 3

    copy the following files to your SDcard -

    update.zip - patch.zip - aml_autoscript - factory_update_param.aml - uboot.bin - uImage_recovery

    Once done shut down tablet and boot to recovery* The white android will show for about 30 seconds and go off, it will then reappear and then the green android will show and the firmware installation will commence, once complete the tablet will restart in chinese, shut down and follow the Root Section.

    ROOT SECTION

    Please make sure you have removed ALL files used during firmware install from sdcard, other files (music/pics etc) are ok.

    Installs Superuser, Root Explorer, New Google Play Store, Maps etc and deletes chinese apps.

    Download the following file -

    http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?bbuqt6rwxou7cw2

    Now open Root_Gapps_complete.zip and copy root.zip and factory_update_param.aml to your sdcard, once done shut down tablet and boot to recovery* the white android will show then the green android, once done the tablet will restart in chinese, go to the settings and change to your language and time zone then go to your apps and you will now see Superuser, Root-Explorer and Chrome etc.. if any chinese apps are left, delete them using Root Explorer.

    *RECOVERY
    Depending on tablet, Hold HOME-KEY for 4 seconds then still holding home-key, hold POWER-KEY until the white android shows then release BOTH keys. Not all tablets are the same some use the volume/back key instead of home key.

    VI40 ULTIMATE 4.1.1


    This is for firmware 4.1.1 Jellybean only as 4.0.3 is pre-rooted.

    Hi iiDiabolusZz!

    Thanks for your great helping guides. I was able to update from 1.4 to 1.5.5 with your other threat and now with this guide I'm proud new V801 JB owner :D

    I'm not sure if it is possible to upgrade straight from 1.4 version to 2.0 or should you first update to 1.5.5? I had older 2.0 firmware, so it could be reason why it didn't work.

    When V801 arrived I was shocked (my first Android...). No youtube, gmail, Gapps etc. Spending a couple of days reading forums I found your thread and now I'm more than happy to own Onda.

    If someone is confused like me where to find Language & input (china is like greek to me ;)). It's icon is some kind of cloud, no A-letter anymore.

    Best regards,
    Late

    Hi. I just try upload my v701 with this method and fail... I have downloaded the firmware V701D_v2.0-SD and inside are all the files you say in your guide except - uImage- . This file isn´t in this firmware. I shut down the tablet, then i go to recovery, the white android appears, but in only 10 sec. appears the green android 1 second and go into recovery with this error message...
    E:Bad bootloader arguments
    "(null)"
    E:unknown volume for path [/udisk/factory_update_param.aml]
    E:Can´t mount /udisk/factory_update_param.aml

    What can i do? I did something wrong?
    Remember that my tablet was upgrade to ICS 1.5.5 whith your last guide.
    Thanks for your help.

    I can't find these on my firmware package: factory_update_param.aml -uImage - u-boot - aml_autoscript

    The only ones I have on my firmware package are update.zip , patch.zip ,
    usb_spl.bin, uImage_recovery, u-boot-orig.bin, and config_progress.xml

    What do I do now?

    And putting the patch.zip will put the chinese apps right? is it better that way than just not to include them?

    Just updated the thread, you need the patch folder as it contains updated audio codecs and all the framework and permissions for google.
