    Hi, new to the forum. Nice to meet you all.

    I purchased onda v701(dual core) and v702(single core) when I was in china couple days ago. They both came in 4.0.x and it seems only my v701 can be updated to JB. I mean seriously v701 was like $5 more expensive but the difference between them is like night and day...

    Anyway, I updated to JB and it works(had trouble with boot loops, stayed between white android and ONDA logo, but after wiping everything in recovery and applying "update.zip" manually it worked, oh is it necessarily to install "patch.zip" as well? the content seems to be mostly those chinese apps).

    I tried rooting with your package and that seems to work as well. The things not working for me:

    -Chrome Beta(why is it still "Beta"?). It FCed right away. Searching for Chrome in Play Store(which works btw) yield no result(not compatible with my device).
    -Voice Search(Google Now, Google Text to Speech in settings). FCed right away. Too bad it's the only reason I updated to JB...

    Any ideas? You said you did this procedure with 30+ v701s. Do those two things work on them?

    Also another question. Both v701 and v702 seems to have a very funky aspect ratio when holding in portrait mode. The display looks distorted. It's obvious looking at the unlock icon(white circle) is more an ellipse than a perfect circle(like on my android phone). Is this normal? The v701 would look normal(not perfect but not as distorted as portrait mode) on landscape view but in portrait view both tabs looks distorted. Any away to fix this? I tried changing the density but haven't got a perfect one maybe you can chime in.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    Hi and welcome to the forums, you have to install the patch.zip as this contains the framework and permissions for google apps, in the v701 Jb firmware file copy the following files to your sdcard - update.zip, patch.zip, aml_autoscript, factory_update_param.aml, u-boot.bin, uImage_recovery.
    Now shut down and boot to recovery, the white droid shows for about 30 seconds, goes then reappears, then the green droid show the installation progress, once done it will restart to chinese, shut down, now remove all the files you just put on sdcard and follow the root section, the file i wrote will remove all the chinese apps and install the correct permissions for google and root it, once done the playstore will work fully also chrome and voice will work.

    All right, works fine. Thanks!

    Another snag though, the Onda v702(single core) won't boot to recovery. It doesn't have volume keys or a back key so the 2nd method to go to recovery doesn't work as well. Any other way?

    This model when powered up doesn't have the white android logo but a colored one(green) inside a filled circle.

    Thanks again!

    Hi, just downloaded the v702 S_C firmware and see it just loads the image, is it rooted? it may have the chinese superuser already on, if so the root file you downloaded for v701 contains rootexplorer.apk, just put that on sdcard and install it then you will have to use that to remove apps, i will see if anyone in china has it rooted or a custom image file just in case.

    I decided to try again, this time installing jellybean first (although I've no idea of the differences between it and ICS). That went well, so I then installed your root proggie and all went well - once I figured out how to change back to English! No Chinese apps and all looks good.

    Now I just have to work out what I'm actually going to do with this tablet (pity it doesn't have a GPS, I didn't realise that when I ordered it).

    It should of removed them, i no one does stay on v701 home screen but when pressed just says app not installed so i just deleted icon, if you get time could you use root explorer to give me the names of the chinese apps still remaining and i will included them in the root package to remove, thanks. Also i am just finishing off a patch.zip file to replace the onda one, it will be rooted and fully working playstore etc.. but without the chinese apps therefore there will be no trace of them.

    Hi, was it rooted etc using this guide? once this guide is done you dont need any files on sdcard, if it will go to recovery try clearing the cache and rebooting.
