    Will OTA firmware upgrades reset the device?

    Thanks.

    I am trying to use LiveSuite v1.07 to update a vi40 ultimate. does anyone know the correct key press / power on sequence to trigger the update. So far in the forums i can only find details which refer to a center menu key? which is this key on the ultimate?
    Or is there an easy way to convert to english language on the android settings (already changed keyboard and defaults)

    I also would like to know how to kick off the update process... I have a 16gb Elite with the three buttons at the centre/bottom.

    And... I am also unsure of other stuff...

    A Windows PC is required? You can't do an upgrade using SDK or ADB tools? (I am on a mac).

    My Vi40 has, after I ran the battery down (said it had 88% - it lied!) decided to just show the android 'dancing' graphic... is there anything I can do short of flashing new firmware? I haven't got anything backed up... reset is not doing anything except resetting... o.0

    Is there a 'recovery' mode on this tablet? It is my first such device and I am still getting to grips with it... I feel like such a n00b... I am fine building half-million-dollar Sun servers, but my $200 tablet has me up against it, I'm afraid...

    I am very tech, so anything unix-like and esoteric is welcome ;)

    Hey I am a mac user and livesuit drove me mad...
    try this CWM method, dead easy if you follow the destructions... as long as you put the zip IMG file on your tablet / sd card (using USB transfer with your mac or pc) you can actually get the tablet to flash itself with some easy terminal commands..
    enjoy
    Chris




    Download this package: http://www.mediafire...24gsk7571qsv2v1 and follow the instructions inside the zipped file.

    and follow the instructions inside the zip file

    the tablet will reboot into recovery

    then u can flash the rom

    This seems to be an invalid address given here (mediafire...). Can anyone post the right address to download the package or tell what is inside that I can search for somewhere else?
    thank you -ame

    I was able to do the firmware upgrade without any issues. But I still have problems using Google Maps with Wi-Fi direct GPS. Is there a guide on how to set these functions up? Thank you.

    Hi I'm a Mac user too and I hate livesuite.
    I have flashed my Onda with Vanilla firmware which was an CWM package.
    Could you please confirm (If I understood you correctly) that I can download the latest package from Onda website and I can simply go into recovery and then flash the zip file I downloaded off the website? According to Onda website the latest version (BETA) is v1.4
    ONDA

    Thanx
