  1. Do you alzo have a boot delay of 6 seconds for choosing Android or Windows? I thought I knew a thing or two about BIOSses, but this one has more options than I have time to search the internet for the meaning of all of those options.
  2. Hey, my tablet has BT now! I spend some time searching for BT a few months ago without finding or being able to enable BT. I should have done this BIOS update long ago... I find the choice between Android and Windows every systemstart (yes, on every boot) annoying. Hope to find me some time to look in the BIOS for a way to disable it. All I have to complain left is the lowest brightness level. But it seems not easy to have it darker. Rockman27: thanks for posting it!
  3. It almost cost me my heart, but it works. Just follow this guy's instructions: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=69168574&postcount=176 After the restart the tablet will reboot a few times after the BIOS, making it look like you have bricked your tablet. Be patient, it'll be ok. You get a choice menu where you can chose between Windows and Android, click Android and enjoy. No, of course not, choose Windows of course! ;-) To be honest, I don't know what will happen if you choose Android. I didn't have the heart... My C: partition has not changed. I installed the touchscreen driver in front of the flash, hoping I wouldn't need to use a mouse, but it replaces the touchscreen driver instead of adding a new one. So I ended up on still using a mouse and keyboard.
  4. Click on the post in my post above your post. Download the file linked in that post. Place it in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers. Reboot. Fixed. About the non-functioning powerbutton: I tried safe boot, but in safe mode the power and volume buttons also don't work. It is almost as if the buttons need a driver to work in Windows...
  5. Ever after crashing my V975w and purchasing my current V919 I have just one regret: the lowest brightness of my V919 is way to bright. My V975w could be set to almost dark, where my current V919 at 0% stays almost as bright as my V975w was at 50%. To be clear: I'm not talking about the setting in Windows. I'm perfectly able to set Windows to 0 brightness, to which I referred as the lowest setting. ;-) I can't find any related setting in the BIOS. Does anybody know a way to adjust the brightness of the screen outside Windows? Firmware? Hardware? I really would like to have my V919 set at a real dark brightness. It is very nice to the eyes when trying to sleep while reading my last Garfield comic of the day. ;-) PS: I don't know what it would be in Android, as I don`t have Android on my system. I'm not even sure it came with Android in the first place or that I removed it...
  6. See: I'm still hoping for a solution for the on/off-button problem.
  7. Same problem here! It looks like the tablet runs smoother on W10CU, so I'll have it on CU for now. Would really like to have a solution for this. If anyone knows any, please let me, us! know!

    Solved. A friend of mine downloaded it with a browser under Linux. He had the same cutoff at 1.05 GB, but under Linux the download resumed at the same point it stopped, instead of saying the download is ready.

    Thanks for your script, XBrav. It didn't work on my V2 tablet, but with help of the script and a good few hours of work I found out how to extract chinese and insert english to the install.wim right from the (elevated) commandline. The key was splitting the multiple argument-commands into single tasks. Selecting a different language ishould now be very simple, just download the right languagefile, rename and copy it to the patch-directory and change the script down below accordingly. F: = my usb-drive with the (in my case) V2 installation/image on it, including the "F:\Patch" from XBrav, but without his MAIN.CMD in the "F:\Scripts" folder C: = my harddisk Done under Windows 8.1 (Dutch) Part of XBrav's script edited by me: @rem Create the mounting directory md c:\test > NUL md c:\tmp > NUL @echo 1) Mounting the system image. dism /mount-image /mountdir:c:\test /imagefile:f:\images\install.wim /index:1 @echo 2) Removing Chinese Language Packs (This will take a while) dism /Image:c:\test /Remove-Package /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Branding-CoreConnected-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~zh-CN~6.3.9600.16384 /ScratchDir:c:\tmp dism /Image:c:\test /Remove-Package /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Client-LanguagePack-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~zh-CN~6.3.9600.16384 /ScratchDir:c:\tmp dism /Image:c:\test /Remove-Package /PackageName:Microsoft-Windows-Editions-CoreConnected-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~zh-CN~6.3.9600.16384 /ScratchDir:c:\tmp @echo 3) Adding English Language Pack (This will also take a while) dism /Image:c:\test /Add-Package /PackagePath:f:\patch\lp_en-us.cab /ScratchDir:c:\ @echo 4) Adding Language Pack Patch.

    Onda v975w V2 Image

    I made an ISO with this manual: http://www.tenforums.com/installation-setup/6235-10122-esd-location.html, because I wanted to install the latest version and had just downloaded the last build on my Win10-computer. I did a clean install. I used the drivers from the V1 for my V2, no problems. But you have to keep in mind: it's stil in beta, not even close to RTM. It performed relatively well, but is still a bit laggy and buggy. But yet very promising! ;-) Before you begin, be sure you are able to go back to Windows 8.1. And just give it a try!

    The BIOS for the V1 and V2 are the same. On the Onda-site, there are no drivers provided for the V2, therefore I concluded the drivers of the V2 are the same of the V1. Give it a try, it cann't go more wrong then it already did: ftp://ftp.onda.cn/download/driver/tablet_driver_win8.1/V975w%20Core4-V1_Win8.1_x86_Drivers.rar Edit: I did an installation of Windows 10 (build 10122) and installed the V1-drivers on my V2 tablet. Works like a charm.

    As hard as I try, how many browsers or computers I use, I'm not able to download these files. The largest filesize after downloading is 1.05 GB. Baidu is not an option, because I don't speak Chinese (to bad...). But with Bing Translator as an assistant I found out I have to download a client of Baidu before I can download the files. And you may have guessed: I'm not able to fully download this client-file either... Can anyone outside China provide me those files? Edit: I have managed to download the Baidu-client, but it's, you'll never believe this: in Chinese. Ofcourse. I should have known it.
