2. Scroll down to the bottom.
3. Click on either one of the two 'green tabs'.
4. That's it.

(to Mjhieu too)
I'm so sorry, the address I upped has got wrong somehow. I've corrected it.
I just have got the Onda Vi40 for two weeks and updated the firmware for a few days, so I'm not sure anything about it. As the Onda said, the ICS 4.04 can improve system performance, further optimize the connection speed. In my opinion, it's just worth trying. I'm still looking forward to a better custom rom.
As LiveSuit's intruction, your apps and data will be kept if you choose the normal upgrade mode instead of the format upgrade mode, in the flash process.

Hi all, I have been trying that Onda 4.0.4 firmware on my vi40 Ultimate for the last couple of days, it is actually a big improvement from the previous Onda 4.0.3 at least because the market is working fine and I could download and use all Google Apps such as Maps, Gmail, Navigator... with no need for any trick. Just installed from Googe Play, while this was impossible with stock 4.0.3.
The 3G Internet key Huawei E353 was recognised at first try.

Just a couple of thing I miss:
- no CMW (manual installation worked but could not reboot correctly, then ROM Manager informed me that "ONDA MID" is not yet certified with CWM)
- no support of WiFi ad-hoc networks (tried many different wpa_supplicant but no joy).

I wonder if anyone has got a fix for those... ?
cheers

Browsing is not very good, but I cannot say if it is better than 4.0.3. I kept 4.0.3 only for a few hours until I realised that most market apps did not show up (incompatible device).

Hi,

I ve download this one and uptated my tablet (VI40 ultimate) with ".doc" method inside the zipped file (instructions are in chinese and only google reads chinese in my home ) :

0- copy unzipped file inside root SD-card, and SD-cart is inside tablet (;-))
1- tablet OFF
2- HomeKey still Pressed
3- tablet ON
4- HomeKey still Pressed

But, my version is still 4.0.3.

Could you please to tell me if the ".doc" method runs correctly or only LiveSuit procedure runs ?

Hi,

for Vi40 ultimate (V1) the following link is

http://file2.mydrive...1.0-0627528.rar

and the build.prop contains 4.0.3 and not 4.0.4 :

ro.build.version.release=4.0.3
ro.build.date=Wed Jun 27 16:21:56 CST 2012
ro.build.date.utc=1340785316

So, i think for me (vi40 ultimate) last update is still 4.0.3
