proof of concept. (no support!)

The RC4 Kitkat Rom from Onda modified.
ONLY for V972_V1

  • fully rooted
  • Stock launcher replaced by an usable one....
  • most Chinese apps removed
  • a handful of useful apps pre-installed.

Language is set to German (sorry, I've forgotten to switch to EN before I've uploaded it)


I think there is much space for improvements, but this could be done by some modders.

I just wanted/needed a rooted 4.4

PS: use PhoenixSuit 1.0.8 to flash the Rom

DOWNLOAD 4.4 ROOT






Thanks for this. Downloading now so hopefully will get to test over the weekend. How did you get root by the way. Is this built from the v972 demo or the v819 build?

From the V972 demo, but Onda has released a new Firmware today, so I will create an actual ROM tomorrow.....

Can you help me with something, trying to extract script.bin from this rom but it is not located anymore at /dev/block/nanda? Can you please change it for me, just put X and Y axes to 0? With this changed, firmware will work on Freelander (no camera, rest is great).

^^ It seems there is no script.bin any more
Apart from that, I have no clue which setting you exactly talking about?
Anyway, changing values in script.bin or sys_config.fex would affect other devices, so that's no option.
Sorry, but no support for other devices.

EDIT: NEW ROM 4.4.2

I like very much this rom. hdmi works well, OTG works, its fast and work everything except :

Audio since 1.31 I think.
Wont boot with SDCARD in.
IF OTG works well with usb pen, why dont work with USB keyboard ? Logitech K400.

OK, thank you. I already unpacked firmware and found configuration file. You know, all this firmwares are more or less same, and easily can be used on another devices. From the beginning I'm using Spark firmwares on my Nextway F9X, but Onda have something with they kernel and that is why I cannot use it on my F9X rev1, rev2 working properly.

good question, I have a k400 as well and never got it working with any firmware, even Cyanogenmod doesn't work.
Seems the kernel lacks support for this keyboard

Hi,Vel,thank you for your great job done for this 972V1 modified rom, what I'm using for my 972v1 device is your "rc4rooted" one, which functions smoothly on my device, while the latest released one(280+M En_version) was not flashed successufully on my device, popping up and says sth about "the rom file is not compelete or the device functions abnormally"

Your the first one with this problem, probably a corrupted download.

Anyway, I have uploaded a new firmware, which solves the
  • problem, that /system couldn't be mounted as read/write!
Download link in the first post of this thread.

Hello Everybody,

I got an Archos Platinum 97 HD, which seems to be equal to V972. Do you think I could try this new new ROM without a big risk for total crash?

Thx!

Hi Vel2000

what is different? both have Allwinner A31 CPU (ARM Cortex-A7) and the same GPU (PowerVR SGX544 (IGP)). so why it shouldn't work?
