Nice to know that I didn't prepare roms and tools for nothing.

I knew that you people are going to f*** up something, sooner or later. Me included. :D

BTW, which one you used for root?

The first one, Vroot V1.7.7.

But it didn't work with the first try. I had to disconnect and connect the phone a couple of times to the PC and choose all the connections types in order to install all the drivers.

After i got ROOT access i installed recovery and rebooted into recovery in order to restore my Lbxb Miui backup.

Not so many, actually.

Two miuis, one AOSP, lewa and color OS,

Several custom factory roms and that's all.

I am on 029 lite for some time now which suits me very well. It has few flaws like that thing with data monitor but I don't use that.

One of my major findings is that phone can easily reach over two days of battery use with over 5.5 hours of screen on time, if you switch off WiFi while not in use.

I am also on 029 lite version. But it has a bug, data usage is not working :( Try to replace with some different apps to control data usage but can't get needed result. Data usage/monitoring is important for me so i want to try this "[ROM] Coolpad F1 custom rom based on official 029 version by seven wolves". Also interested in AOSP, and color OS.

I will post here some details about my case with the soft brick as i see that there are others with soft bricks and it may come useful to them.

 

My PC is running Windows 7 64bit with all the updates.

If your PC has known issues with blue screens and reboots, DONT TRY ANYTHING! Find another, reliable PC and try unbricking your phone.

 

I soft bricked my phone in ColorOS V1.4.

I remember that i unplugged the USB cable without safely removing it from PC (there wasn't an option to do it). Then on the phone screen a message appeared, saying that my SD card is corrupted and i should format it. I pressed the message a couple of times but nothing happened. Then i understood that i made a huge mistake and rebooted the phone in order to see if i had bricked it.

The phone went into a boot loop and i couldn't get into recovery. I have to say that when i tried to flash a ROM the first time, something went wrong and the phone had gone into a boot loop. But i could get into recovery. It wasn't a soft brick. So before doing the steps to unbrick the phone, try first to get into recovery.

 

I tried the first way to unbrick it with all three versions of the program many times. Each time it got stuck at 98% on the PC but my phone would show some fast text and then reboot. It's only then that the software on the PC would move from 98% and inform that it's done.

 

Then i tried the second method and it worked with the first try. But this method is more complicated than the other, so before trying anything, read the guide first a couple of times. Don't read it on the fly. You will get confused and at some points you need to act fast (when you have to release the buttons after red 100% bar).

Hi everybody!

1) After flashing to Coolpad Factory rom 020 in CPB format can't get official updates. It downloads update.zip and can't install, just crashes.

 

2) Is there any ROM with COOLIFE UI 5.5(based on 029 official version) with working data usage/monitor?

Here's newest 029 release

I just tried the one that you have on the first page but i didn't like it. It consumes more RAM than MIUI 4.6.13 by Lbxb that i use.

Is there a change log for this release?

Hi Dakok - apologies if these are dumb questions but I'm a bit confused.

Is 029 the latest stock ROM and is it official for WCDMA or patched to work on WCDMA?

And what versions are there - original 029 (http://www.modaco.com/topic/372543-coolpad-f1-8297w-review-info-software-custom-roms/page-2#entry2216900), the lite 029 (beta?) based one in your third post and this other (?) lite one above in your previous post? It looks like the latter two are ATX team mods of the (official or beta?) 029 stock and the one linked in your previous post is simply the latest?

As I said - apologies if I'm being dumb here...  :blush:

Hi dalyer!

 

It goes like this:

 

As we know, there are two Coolpad F1 versions - one is TD-SCDMA (China 3G network), the other is WCDMA (EU compatible 3G network)

TD-SCDMA was released first so it has higher rom version number - now it's 086

WCDMA is at 029 now

 

These factory rom releases are official and arrive at phone as OTA upgrades. 

Smart guy (or guys) from China take that roms off their phones and make them flashable thru CWM/TWRP recovery,

with some editing (removing bloatware and adding stuff)

 

Good thing is that TD-SCDMA rom version can be used on our phone, too (with minor changes)

since all of the difference is in modem software and that can be copied from one rom to another.

 

In conclusion and taking the above stuff in account - we have TWO official roms. One with high number 08x

and another with low - 02x :D

 

To make it more clear - pure official version comes only thru OTA (wifi/3G) upgrade

Everything else that you download and flash thru recovery is altered - more or less...

 

P.S. to correct myself - pure official versions can be installed thru Flash Tool or CPB software, too

but it is more complicated and I wouldn't recommend that except for the phone unbrick purpose

Dakok - thanks a lot for taking the time to post that summary - much appreciated and it clarifies some issues for me.

Also interesting about 033.

 

Just one thing ... is the ATX "lite" 029 here the latest:

 

http://www.modaco.com/topic/372543-coolpad-f1-8297w-review-info-software-custom-roms/#entry2212207

 

And is it based on a beta version of the official 029 or does beta refer to their own work and it's based on the official stock 029 WCDMA? (Hopefully I'm making that question clear! :D)

I was hoping to try this ATX lite version soon.

 

BTW is there any logic to the Coolpad stock ROM version numbers or are they simply likely to be internal build numbers or something? 021 - 026? - 029 - 033? - 085...

@arya

I think it should have this name: recovery.img, so rename it like this.

 

@dalyer

latest two 029 releases were "light", so I think you cant miss that (rom is slimmed down to ~420 MB or less)

I have 086 since yesterday and it looks good for the time being.

Network data manager is working fine...

 

@borosg

do you have link for that one?
