It now appears that some people have reported success using Vroot V1.7.7 on coolpad F1 official ROM's, right up to v29, if a Chinese flash screen comes up on the phone screen, click the bottom left hand button which we believe is ok.
Started this topic as this phone could be the new V5. here are my first questions...
Has anybody managed to find a way to re-introduce the usb mass storage to this phone instead of mtb, have tried several methods found on the web with no luck, including rebooting with usb connected and changing build properties.
Is there a version of CWM that may work, as I did a factory reset and recovery was all in Chinese ....nightmare .
Is there a web page that has the official original ROM available , just in case..
All information re software-custom-roms etc has now been combined by dadok in his excellent thread below
At dakok's request moving some of his posts to the first page for quick info.
In the meantime take a look at MIUI development for Coolpad F1.
If I got that right, it seems that someone made a patch for WCDMA version so you can flash TD-SCDMA rom and that patch it to WCDMA...
Here's resourceful ydss website, too

Coolpad F1 WCDMA original rom & Tools:
Could you move this links to the first or second post, please?
There is a selection of 14 roms for our phone at Mobile Uncle website.
There is also a MIUI patch that converts TDSCDMA MIUI rom for F1 to a WCDMA one
I wonder if it works for non-MIUI roms
This is the way to install Google Services (Google Play, etc) without root
Take your own responsibility to flash this!
1 Move the zip package into the root directory of phone memory /storage/emulated/0, note the name do not change;
3 Enter the System Setup - on the phone, click on eight consecutive "version number", enter developer mode, ie press the return key to exit on the phone to see the "Developer Options";
4 Click into the developer options down to the final surface to find "GMS package pre-installed" option, click, the system prompts "Restart phone GMS package will install", click OK to install;
5 After the installation is complete, it will automatically boot, boot into the application to view the completed package to the GMS application installed;
Google services patch:
This is google translation and my english is far from perfect so I leave this short guide without major corrections. I think it is clear enough, anyway
(P.S. if someone wants to make this absolutely clear - be my guest)
