Chinese website for Chinese phones [ROMs] Jiayu G2 & more

12 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

View using Google Chrome for 'instant translation'

http://bbs.lewaos.co...?mod=mtk&gid=85

I found this while looking for more for Jiayu G2, specifically installing a recovery, looks promising:

http://bbs.lewaos.co...iayu_g2h.html#1

http://bbs.lewaos.co...php?rom=release It appears that the 1G RAM version is referred to as G2H or 'Standard edition' while the 512K RAM version is G2L or 'Popular edition', I confirm that mine says G2H in 'about phone > build number'

Yes, Lewa recovery works (and it's in English) - looks like a 'skinned' TWRP (have also seen a Chinese TWRP and CWM on the Jiayu site).

For some reason the camera stopped working after installing recovery but a factory reset restored everything to working order so I installed my apps etc. and made a backup.

Using Chrome on my laptop for the translation it's easy enough to sign up for an account for both Lewa http://bbs.lewaos.com/forum.php and Jiayu http://bbs.ejiayu.com/forum.php

Use Chrome or Google translate then follow the instructions in the second link on my first post.

Useful extracts:

Download MTK6577 Brush tool zip (click to download)Download finished, unzip to your computer desktop (after decompression to get SP_Flash_Tool folder).

Download G2 dual-core the Le Frog bottom package and extract to your computer desktop (computer operations)

Download good domain G2 dual-core standard version of the bottom package zip ( click to download), the download is complete, unzip to your computer desktop (after decompression will get the best the domain G2 dual-core music frog bottom package folder).

1, install the driver

Turned off, remove the battery and connect the phone and computer with a data cable, the PC will be prompted to install the driver to manually select the driver directory: SP_Flash_Tool \ the directory the driver now driving the search to complete the driver installation, the installation is complete disconnect phone. Note: If the computer system is unable to install the driver, a streamlined version of the download system. Incomplete zip ( click to download ), after decompression done in accordance with the instructions inside finished, repeat the above install the driver steps.

The open Flash_tool.exe, click Scatter-loading button at the top right, choose their own cell phone version of the corresponding end of the package folder (g2s \ 20120830-142135) MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt.

Will be possible after a string of English pop-up, click on OK.

Le Frog base package will automatically check several options, do not change. (Pop-up box, click and then click the Download button above "(Y)" button) turned off, remove the battery, the phone connected to the computer with the data cable, etc. read all the progress bar, automatic pop-up green circles represent success has successfully brush into the bottom of the package, you can unplug the phone.

Note: The automatic pop-up green circles represent success has successfully brush into the bottom of the package, you can unplug the phone.

I tried the Rood Guide by aaroNiGHTS but could not get that to work so rooted successfully using the 'one click' method but it was then I found I had no recovery so I have since followed the LeWa guide and successfully installed recovery - I believe this also roots if not root already.

The most difficult part for me was the driver,LeWa method seems best for this.

look at this... this is the updater-script of the G2S-MTK6577-*-Root.zip...

http://pastebin.com/J6NuEY7h

omitting the ui_prints and the stage where it removes the jiayu apps you get


assert(package_extract_file("boot.img", "/tmp/boot.img"),

	 write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img", "bootimg"),

	 delete("/tmp/boot.img"));

mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p3", "/system");

set_perm_recursive(0, 2000, 0755, 0755, "/system/xbin");

package_extract_dir("system", "/system");

set_perm(0, 0, 0644, "/system/app/Superuser.apk");

set_perm(0, 0, 06755, "/system/xbin/su");

set_perm(0, 0, 04755, "/system/bin/bash");

set_perm(0, 2000, 04755, "/system/bin/busybox");

unmount("/system");

that's all what seems to need to root the phone, it's easy and I think it could be done by the "update system" app...

the only thing I can't understand is why is it flashing the kernel... won't it work with the custom kernel built-in?

Al_1604, got a question. I tried flash recovery or root these two methods that you mentioned but none of it didn't work. To flash lewa recovery should I follow this guide? http://bbs.lewaos.co...iayu_g2h.html#1

-edit-

Ok nevermind. I've done it. First, flashing the lewa recovery, after flashing the MTK6577_Universal_Root.zip.

I was just reading this:

http://techideki.com/jiayu-g3-official-firmware-update-g3-20121129-082828/

The chap says that kernel sources for the MTK 6577 chip are now made public.

Would this mean that there is potential for ROM development on the G2?

Also, on a side note. Can anyone comment on GPS lock on times? Takes ages for me. :-/
