About This File

Disclaimer

Flashing a ROM is a destructive operation. A lot of things can go bad and you can destroy your tablet.

Also, a lot of people have bricked their tablets while upgrading to official ROMs, without messing with custom ROMs.

Always use a good SD card of size no more than 16GB.

Always safe remove the card from the computer.

Always format the card before use.

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.

If you proceed, YOU ARE DOING IT AT YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY!!!

I will not be responsible for any damage caused in your tablet by using this ROM.

Dear all,

ROM Features

- Based on ONDA's official 1.1.0 release.

- No chinese apps.

- Properly rooted with Chainfire's SuperSU 1.94.

- Default language is en_US

- Default timezone is Europe/Athens.

- Updated google apps from bundle gapps-jb-20130813-signed (from goo.im).

Installation instructions

Select the file of your choice between ONDA_V975m_V3_v1.1.0_rozak_20140414-2G.rar for 2GB application storage, or ONDA_V975m_V3_v1.1.0_rozak_20140414-4G.rar for 4GB application storage.

Now that you have done your choices, download the correct file and proceed accordingly.

Case A - Upgrade install

If your tablet has already the same application storage space as the one you have selected, follow this procedure for the upgrade:

2- Put an SD card of size up to 16GB in card reader.

3- Format the SD card with SDFormatter version 4 (hint: run this program as administrator).
