Onda V989: Release Of Firmware 1.0.1

In a Weibo communique today:

OndaServiceV989Firmware101Weibo

Chinese:

#V989内测#根据内测用户的问题反馈,升级了固件版本。新固件改善如下:1、优化系统性能;2、优化触摸,修正部分死角灵敏度低的问题,增加支持十点触摸;3、优化摄像头性能及稳定性。大家可以根据不同版本下载固件升级。V989八核V1.0.1_V1正式版http://t.cn/RPAKcon |V2正式版 http://t.cn/RPAKcoE

Google Translate:

# # V989 beta beta user based on the problem of feedback, upgraded the firmware version. The new firmware improvements as follows: 1, optimize system performance; 2, optimized touch, fix the problem of low sensitivity partially dead, ten-point increase in support for touch; 3, to optimize camera performance and stability. Depending on the version you can download the firmware upgrade. V989 eight nuclear V1.0.1_V1 official version http://t.cn/RPAKcon | V2 official version http://t.cn/RPAKcoE

1 – Optimize system performance

2 – Increase multitouch from five- to ten-point

3 – Resolve the issue of a touchscreen “dead zone”

4 – Improve camera software

Yesterday I saw two videos demonstrating the touchscreen “dead zone.” I chose not to post them, to give Onda the benefit of the doubt. I couldn’t believe it was a hardware defect — that would have been a devastating lapse in quality control. It turned out to be a software issue after all.

As communicated, there are two versions of the firmware, depending on whether or not a beta-test buyer has the first or second iteration of the V989:

OndaV989IMP3NetFUR1004

In addition, the Onda OS forum has instructions for activating developer mode [Google Translate]. Although the post is locked, what’s still visible might be enough.
