Everybody keeps asking this but isn't it simply the case that there is NO real Lollipopfor F1 at all? There are several ROMs that are styled to look like Lollipop but ultimately they are based on an older ROM, kernel etc.?
What happens when you boot into recovery and try to charge there? Does it show that it's charging? I can't imagine that this is a problem with that ROM per se as otherwise people would have reported it before now. Maybe backup - reinstall and see if that makes a difference? You can always restore your backup afterwards if necessary.
Have you looked at this thread in case it's of any use? http://www.modaco.com/forums/topic/374871-shooting-at-216-mpixels-6000χ3600/ Apart from the specific mod in question I think the thread also mentions a few alternative camera apps. The main thread may also mention some.
This thread http://www.needrom.com/download/cwm-recovery-6-0-5-1-for-coolpad-f1-plus-8297-w01/ mentions at least one option (in Chinese) for rooting the F1 Plus: http://bbs.coolpad.com/thread-4109376-1-1.html And another (Russian) thread: http://4pda.ru/forum/lofiversion/index.php?t641635.html Obviously use Google/Chrome translate to get the gist of the foreign language threads.
As I said - custom ROM ZIP file = use CWM, TWRP (or whatever the ROM installation instructions recommend). CPB (or maybe some other formats) = use CDA or YGDP. I don't know if "brush tool" when translated from Chinese to English means one of these specifically or any flashing tool in general.
I don't know what you mean by "brush tool". As I have already said if a ROM is in zip format then almost certainly it's a custom ROM that can be flashed with a custom recovery - CWM, TWRP etc. Some custom ROMs recommend a specific recovery and/or version to use. If it's a CPB (and maybe other?) format then it needs to be flashed using CDA or YGDP. If you use the wrong tool to flash a ROM then it will not work. Here what is?!? Check the instructions for flashing this ROM. I don't know. Usually a ROM has to have different radio (baseband?) files for the different standards (WCDMA versus TD-SCDMA) but maybe some ROMs support both?
If you don't know what you're doing when flashing ROMs then don't do it or you may end up in trouble,
Try what??! You can't flash a CPB ROM from CWM/TWRP. End of story! You really should read the first post as all of this is covered already. It's the 8297 F1. It could refer to either the WCDMA version or the TD-SCDMA version depending on the context.
You need to read the first post in this thread. Most custom ROMs are zips that can be installed by most or all custom recoveries - e.g. CWM, TWRP etc. But some ROMs - especially original CoolUI ROms for example - are in another format and need to be installed using a specific tool - e.g. CPB format installable using YGDP (Yulong General Download Platform) or CDA (Coolpad Download Assistant). YGDP is probably the best/easiest to use if installing CPB ROMs. The only issue some people have is getting the right drivers.
Yes - "China Unicom" is the WCDMA version of the F1 and not the TD-SCDMA version used on other networks in China and not much use outside of China. Unicom is the network in China that supports WCDMA. Most or all others support TD-SCDMA. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W-CDMA_(UMTS) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TD-SCDMA
Can you link to this post? I don't recall anything about this. There was a post saying that L was canned and then mentioning their partnership with Qihoo to develop a new "360" OS but I don't think that there was any statement that this WILL be available for F1 or what version of Android it might be based on.
Aren't the latest official ROMs here? http://www.yulong.com/product/product/product/load.html?productBO.product.id=6471&productBO.menuId=5082 There may be later beta versions of the JB and KK CoolUI ROMs on the Coolpad forum but I can never figure out what's what there even after translation (e.g. what is an original beta version and what is something that somebody else has modified...) http://bbs.coolpad.com/forum.php?mod=forumdisplay&fid=1065&filter=typeid&typeid=381
