Hi all, thanks for trying to help.
My onda v989 is already set to English but system notices - like the one I'm getting when I'm logging into my Wi-Fi network - are still in Chinese.
Anyone knows how to change those into English?
Please understand that I am referring to the actual system language and not to the user main language that I know how to change(Setting >> [A] Language&input >> Language (1st line) )
I hope to learn Chinese in the next semester but I'd still rather have that text in English.
I've just bought a Onda V989 Air V3.
I'm happy with the new tablet for my last child, but i think the last version of the rom some have still some problems.
(Or i'm the lucky owner of a defective tablet)
I'll be happy to help other people, to find informations about the tablet, like roms, root ...
So i'll try to do my best, with your help, to keep this post updated often.
Onda firmware ( published description) is designated device model and hardware assembly version ( v# ) specific.
V989 Air v3 is designated as " Black Gold Edition " device hardware version ( 16 GB / 32 GB ) Aug 2015 original firmware release
[RemixOs or Stock Rom]
I'm on RemixOs since few Weeks, and i've no more crazy bugs like : Freeze during installation via Playstore, Laggs, Stockage issue ...
When you boot, on the stock ROM i wasn"t having information like "Optimisation des Applications 1/102 ..." So you know when it is just Loading ...
You have a cool TaskBar
- This Rom doesn't include gapps.
- To have all languages, you have to find the tick box to unlock it. (Tell me where, i'll be happy to add the information here)
[How to root]
Use first link under, and unzip it into folder Root (created by you) on SdCard (Internal or ExtSD)
Install "Update.apk" and launch it.
Do [Local Update], search your previously created folder, and select "ondaos_v989_Root.zip", click [Update].
[Links - Downloads]
1. Only Root with SuperSu
Link : http://www.mediafire.com/download/48cdh7ansltmvl4/Onda_V989_Root.rar
My opinion: Work like a charm / Best Way to do it / Update SuperSu via Playstore work well with "normal installation"
1. Flashfireapk [RECOMMENDED]
Flash Without recovery
My opinion: Work well for flashing Mods / ZIP on our V989
NOT TESTED FOR FLASH RECOVERY OR OTHER THINGS ...
2. LSpeed Mod [TESTED ON FRESH ROM] PlayStore
My opinion: Launcher little less laggy..
3. Universal Init.D [TESTED] Playstore
My opinion: Working (TESTED with Creation of file test via folder Init.D)

My opinion: Crazy !
You want more fluidity in your games ? It's possible !

5. Titanium Backup
Uninstall all chinese software with it.
My opinion: Best way to remove chinese software !
6. Nova launcher
My opinion: Light and fluid
[Bugs i've encountered on STOCK ROM]
- During installing apps via Playstore (not downloading) it freeze all the tablet, and unfreeze when apps installed.
- Some big games on playstore, donwload (Game + Additional data), install, and fail without reason or just blackscreen for some second and return to launcher.
- With "Universal Init.D", Tweaks ABS, when i boot up the tablet, it's a little laggy and cannot have SU working for 1-2 mn, and see on bottom:
"Init. Universal have got root permission accorded"
"Lucky Patcher have got root permission accorded"
After that, everything it's ok and smooth.
(Maybe due to Universal Init.d that launch script ?)
[What can be working on ?]
- Cannot get working Link2SD
I've try with / without second partition / EXT4, doesn't seen the partition.
- Not enought space on "System partition" maybe add/extend 512Mb more ?
- Have a debloated rom with init.d support
- Found / Have a custom Recovery ? FlashFire
- Try to get working OndaZ Air Rom:
I've tried it, but got some problems like: OP showed in front of applications size / Shutdown of the tabled under 59% / Games are "Slow" / Sometime lines bug with color are show
(Take look at my post 30/10/2016)

Any Thanks, likes, or other things will be appreciated.
I'm doing it on my own time.
we bought a V989 Air 16GB golden Tablet on gearbest.com and the touchscreen is not working at all. The tablet boots and you see android icons (chinese) but you can't click, swipe or anything (zero reaction at all). the buttons on the right side are working. we made a factory reset, no change. then i tried flashing the device with a chinese onda software and that process seemed to work, but still no touch screen reaction.
do you have any suggestions what i could try?
ould this be a problem which is not resolvable by software?
or maybe not resolvable at all?
we tried to get our money back but gearbest.com knows how to avoid this.
In the serial number i have something like xxxxxxxV5A000379
By Omar Chaudhry
I purchased Onda V989 Air Core8 (32GB) , having serial Number : V989ABFAV3D00065 in December, 2015.
Since last 2 months I am having problem of automatic Shut downs.
Battery is full, and I be just using simple apps, like Facebook or Browser, and this tablet just gives a message of Shutting Down, and then shuts down. First it used to happen once or twice a day. But now it happens even after 10 or 15 minutes, so it has become almost impossible to use the tab.
I have not changed / upgraded any ROM or any software into it, since I bought it. It still has its original Android version 4.4.4, and Firmware version # V1.0.1_v3
I have tried Factory Reset multiple times, but the issue still remains there.
Any idea or suggestion for me ?
Thanks in advance.
I got a V989 Air v3 and with usb debugging active, windows 7 32bit does not recognise it correctly.
