    [ROM]Elektricity ROM

    NOTE: ***THIS ROM IS FOR V1/V2 VERSIONS ONLY!!***

    Introducing Elektricity ROM JB for the Onda V711S!

    New in 0.41:
    Initial release. I've incorporated all the speed tweaks from elektricity ROM for the Polaroid tablets. The scripts I've added (Thank you Android Tweaks!) have dramatically increased the speed of this tablet, which is why I am starting the ROM version at .041.

    Features:
    • Based on latest stock Onda JB
    • Rooted
    • Busybox updated to latest version
    • init.d support by default
    • Scripts for speed added
    • Petrus' 'Reboot' application. Features:
      • Reboot
      • Power Off
      • Reboot into recovery

    • (Updated) Apex Launcher enabled as default launcher


    Thanks to: The usual suspects, and Geekbuying for providing the tablet to make this ROM!

    Installation instructions:
    In step 2., you will specify the "Onda_V711S_elektricity_rom_v_041.img" file
    • Follow the rest of the instructions as indicated.
    • After booting, 'LET IT SIT' for at least 10 minutes before doing anything to let the ROM "Settle".
    • Reboot (I just added this step as a 'just in case things aren't quite working the way you want').


    Problems after you flash?:

    PLEASE DO NOT REPORT PROBLEMS IN THIS THREAD until you've confirmed you followed the above instructions EXACTLY. Please don't report the problem in this thread until you've tried a factory image install first to see if that cures the problem.

    CHANGELOG:
    See post #2

        Cheers
        Alot of the tweaks (mainly the init.d scripts)I got from the app "Android tuner" and others I gleaned from the internet in various parts...

        BTW, I noticed that you posted the stock firmware for your TV stick. If you're willing to test I might be interested in making a port of elektricity ROM to work with it.

                Mine came shipped with 4.2.2 stock, which is what I based my elektricity ROM off of.

                    Average/ max speed of my processor is the same as stock Onda. Tablet is smoother, no major issues.

                        Onda v711s V3??

                        OK, firstly, thank you for this, it is rare indeed to find any ROM for this Tablet.

                        However, I have hit a problem, regarding the Onda V711s Tablet I bought, from Hong Kong Geeks.

                        There are apparently two versions of the V711s, V1 and V3, I think hardware differences, but do not know specifically what the differences are.

                        I got the V3 version, and I cannot flash any custom ROM, or indeed Custom Recovery, like Christian Troy's CM ROM's, over on Slatedroid (sorry, OK to mention??). These require TWRP to be installed, and it also cannot be done with this V3 version, at least, not in the way shown.

                        I flashed your ROM, using Phoenix [how good is that, brilliant SW, IMO].

                        Now, I have flashed the latest Chinese F/W also, and I was successful, so I am using Phoenix correctly!!

                        Your ROM shows update OK, flashed 100%, in Phoenix.....

                        but, even waiting 10/20 minutes, just looking at AllWinner Logo, nothing happens, at all.....just able to power Tablet off/on, no way to get into Recovery [prob no Recovery??], usually Home +Power works......

                        nothing, not booting at all.

                        So, unfortunately, I have had to re-flash Chinese ROM, with Phoenix again....no probs, so no "Brick"

                        And no prob getting into Stock Recovery again, Home/Power Buttons....

                        But, no Elektricity ROM either

                        Original Firmware version was 3.2.5_V3, Android 4.2.2

                        Now running 3.3.1_V3

                        Model Number shows: v711s Core4

                        Kernel is: 3.3.0 onda@SRV2013 #3

                        Build number: fiber_ondam704q6V3-eng 4.2.2 JDQ39 20131118 test-keys

                        Latest F/W here:

                        http://www.onda.cn/Tablet/ProductInf...tId=252&d=down

                        Or faster here:

                        V3.3.1_V3

                        https://disk.yandex.com/public/?hash...f516vhOEDAU%3D

                        V4.4_v3 [KitKat Beta]

                        https://disk.yandex.com/public/?hash...8I1w/MABciI%3D

                        Perhaps the above will help peeps here, as the ROM here definitely will not flash properly.

                        Maybe there is a way to make this ROM compatible with these newer Onda v711s V3??

                        Thanks for listening....

                        If I can help, please let me know, I am no Dev, but no problem with doing stuff, sending files, etc....

                        BTW, it is easy to root this using Onda_Allwinner_A31_root_v1_0.zip....link to Arctablet forum tutorial below:

                        http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featur...based-tablets/


                        So, lastly, if anyone knows an easy way to remove all these Chinese apks from system, and replace them with English language apks, or whatever is your language, I would be grateful for all help.

                          Looks like there is a 4.4.2 beta for the V1/V2 (which I'm suspecting I own). I'll put a clarification at the top of the page, that my ROM will work only with V1/V2 of the tablet. That should at least help with confusion.

                            OK, there is indeed a 4.4.2 for Onda v711s V1....

                            Thanks to Moyano, on Russian site 4pda.ru, here is a link:

                            https://disk.yandex.com/public/?hash...S2sjgzPuQgg%3D

                            V4.4_v1

                            a list of changes:
                            1. Upgrading to Android 4.4.2
                            2. starters upgrading Onda
                            3. desktop screenshot plan menus and other features to increase
                            4. Optimizing CPU performance
                            5. Optimize RAM
                            6. Energy Optimization
                            7. Optimization touch response faster, smoother operation (optimization response stitch)
                            8. Optimized multitasking
                            9. New feature Google Cloud Print
                            BTW, the quickest way to know V1 or V3, apparently, is to look at the S/N on the tablet back:

                            SN: V711SXXXV3YYYYYY on my tablet indicates V3 Hardware type. [Probably has the V1 on yours, or V2, dunno!!]

                            It's the 9th and 10th letter/number in a 16 digit serial number.
