Hi, I wanted to ask if you know this ROM. According indicate is official android 4.2.2 "VOWNEY V5", I checked the "build.prop" and puts it's 4.2.2, besides this "ro.build.display.id = ydss-Maomi-V5".

i found clockworkmon on play store under the name of rom manager but it could be an error... I uninstall it and i use your method for the same result


rom manager is an app made by the creator of clockworkmod, its not CWM its self but can be used to download and flash the recovery image for supported devices,
and i highly doubt the vowney v5 would be supported, flashing a recovery image that was not made for your device can brick it as the partition layout on other devices
is normally different, this is why it needs built specifically for each device.


so, did you actually flash a recovery image with rom manager ?

also, how are you booting into CWM?

who ever has the vowney mod rom, can please share if the same error occurs...
there's an update available but everytime i choose download i get 2 options, wipe cache and wipe data i then choose install,
then a message saying that installing the file will reboot into recovery to flash the zip file, and after the installation the system will reboot automatically, i choose install -
goes into recovery, then i have the option - install untrusted zip, if i press yes

installation aborted -
E: failed to open/sdcard/OTA-Updater/download/vowneymod_2.zip
(no such file or directory)
E:signature verification failed
E:can't open/sdcard/OTA-Updater/download/vowneymod_2.zip
(no such file or directory)

i dunno why is this happening i thought i already had the updated version of vowneymod


ignore that its a small error in the build.prop, i will releases a patch soon to correct the date and stop it thinking there is an update


Edit:

Patch Attached File  OTA-Fix.zip   160.85KB   43 downloads Flash in recovery, No Wipe

i'm a bit sceptical of this as its not on the official site, will download and take a look


Edit:

i can confirm this is fake, its actually the "11th May" release which is an older version with the build.prop edited,
not to mention official stock roms do not come in flashable.zip format.

all official updates will be on the official vowney site.


Edit2:

confused.... :blink: :huh: :mellow:

after looking further into this, thought i would take a look at the AndroidMnifest.xml of some of the core android apps
as i expected they would show 4.2.1 further showing its fake...

to my surprise they all show >>
android:versionName="4.2.3-eng.root.1366978805"


so this is ether some really sad person that has spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to fool people,
or its infact android 4.2.3 which does not exist as its actually >> 4.3 which is still not officially released by Google (but been leaked for S4 GE)

yes, if flashed properly (increasing the partition) just try the guide as normal first.

but if it fails to flash, you might need to actually add the whole stock rom and use the firmware upgrade button,
(minus the scatter file and recoivery.img)

Tillaz, the rom is working perfectly. Cheers.

Any chance you could add an option to assign the long press for recent apps to the home button instead of the menu button?

Thanks Tillaz for all your hard work! Any chance you could do a release that's basically as close to stock as possible? None of the extra stuff, just rooted, Chinese apps removed and Play store installed?

I installed R2 and the patch as per the first post on this thread, last night, but when I try to access System-Settings under Quick Links, I get a 'Sorry, Unfortunately Settings has stopped' message.
Should I just try again? I did the two spots before installing?

You SHOULD (ie I take no responsibility!!) be able to copy this file into your SD card root directory; https://dl.dropboxus...04/recovery.img

and then use MobileUncle from Google Play, then using the Recovery Update function, select it from the Recovery file in SD Card section, then flash it,

It seems to be the case with all my earphones and i have tried a few different apps (maybe it's a hardware issues)
