A few companies are beginning to release KitKat ROMs for MT6592 phones. Let's hope Coolpad follow in due course!

Bugger. I've just been contacted by DHL and have had to pay 13 quid VAT and duty for my order. The shipment is tracking now and hopefully, I should receive it during the next few days.

 

Didn't think I'd get away without paying it, however, so not too many complaints.

Who did you order it from? When the package comes to you, please let us know whether it was labeled as gift or not, and what was the value declared on invoice. I'd be grateful for info.

I ordered it from an Aliexpress seller (who I linked to earlier in the thread). Once I receive the package I'll make a note of what was written on the outside but I didn't specifically ask the seller to mark it as a gift.

well, i'm in a bit of a pickle...

 

my coolpad arrived today and it doesn't have google play. i've tried about every single tutorial or advice i could've found but no luck.

 

the phone isn't rooted and this is why i cannot install cwm which is the reason why i cannot install some other rom or gapps...

 

i've tried the standard solution - Framaroot - and the exploit is obviously patched so it doesn't work. i've tried several other tools (z4root, 360root, PermRoot) but no luck.

 

any advice would be much appreciated. thanks.

RootingFor anybody who needs to Root there F1 my supplier in China "Chinatronic" has come to my rescue and just sent me this link to re-root my F1 phone http://www.mgyun.com/vroot download it and although in Chinese it is quite easy to work out, 2 clicks and I was rooted again, so easy.

Have you tried this above

Framroot did not work on mine either, but the Chinese one did it first time, have you uninstalled framroot before you tried it and rebooted, not sure what to suggest other than that, there is people more able than me, guess one of them may be more help when they spot your post...

yeah, i even did a full factory reset with data and cache wipe but no help... they seem to have the hole plugged pretty well unfortunately. i guess i'm condemned to this mostly chinese rom for the time being until one og the whizzes creates a new patch...

 

edit

interesting. i downloaded the english version of the application and it downloaded the drivers and rooted my phone :)

 

any quick recommendations about the rom?

Hi Pletko!

Welcome to Modaco :)

Where did you buy F1?

 

Which vroot did you download? Any link?

 

It seems that AOSP by Jonzalvo is fine http://www.movilesdualsim.com/forums/roms-coolpad-f1.439/

Don't forget to backup your system ;)

Pletko, there's no mail in my gmail inbox?

 

Anyway, I think you need the right USB driver. This is an official one:

My phone came from ali express I had to pay 15 quid customs charges.

I've installed the asop rom and it's really good except for one thing. It seems to charge really slowly and when I use it with the power plugged in the battery actually goes down slightly. I've never had a phone that did this before.. :/

It can take a few cycles of the battery to sort itself out properly. See if the charging speed improves after you've been using it for a few days. I have found that charging usually is pretty slow when you are using the phone because (I'd imagine), the screen brightness is usually at 100% when charging and (perhaps) the CPU governor isn't trying to use the most stringent energy saving mode. The second part of the previous sentence was just conjecture on my part! A lot depends on which governor is selected in the kernel, I expect.

This is with the brightness set around 8% and regardless of how I use it the battery should not lose charge whilst plugged in. That makes no sense at all..

Could be a glitch with the ROM, I suppose. Let's hope we get some updates soon. Looking on the Coolpad forum, it seems that there are plenty of updates being released for (I assume) the TD-SCDMA version. Most recent is "075" released yesterday.

 

Hopefully these will be modified in due course for the Unicom 8297w phones and then become available outside of China.
