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.co...s/#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?

This is unbelieveable. :D

Testing latest Color OS yesterday and everything works fine, looks like a keeper and then

I wanted to make a call - no contacts on SIM card. I mean they are listed but can't be used actually.

 

Now testing 086 - all looks good and then - bingo! system crashes after I set up APN 

:(

Hi dakok!

 

Official 033: http://www.7to.cn/an...romdetail/20132

Download fast from my google drive: https://drive.google...a0tCWHNHaWFnNDA

 

I'm not sure that it is an official releise, but it works good. Only bug that I find: can't change the notification sound.

 

I find a "newer" version: http://www.7to.cn/an...romdetail/20155

 

I download it now and I will try it today :)

Dakok - so you're playing with 086 TD-SCDMA with the WCDMA "patch" overlaid as outlined in your top posts I presume?

That's right. It came patched and there are rom releases that work for both versions...

Did you try 034 version? I have some questions concerning that ROM

1) Is it official ROM?

2) Data usage is working or not?

3) OTA update is working or not?

Hello!

 

Yes, I'm also trying out. I dont know it is an official version...but so far this has the least bug. But  I see no significant difference with 033. Maybe a little faster. Data usage is working on both versions, there is a chinaise app CoolManager that can't be remove or freeze, because it must to work the data usage. If I choose the OTA update I get this answer:"Your phone software version is the latest one"

I re-installed official coolpad rom v15, to check versions, it auto updated to v20, then v21 and finally v29 where it stopped and said I have the latest version, so looks like it might be a fake official ROM.

I translated the Chinese description of 033 Rom. It says that this is the latest official beta version... As I have said, I am not sure, but the rom is works good, and that is enough for me :)

I tried many roms: Officials, Color Os, Fun Touch, BaiduCloud, Nibiru, 5-6 kind of AOSP, Lewa, and Miui-s....The most stable are the AOSP roms, but they are boring. My favorite is CoolLife Ui, but unfortunately it has a lot of flaws...

The other favorite for me is Miui, but I have not yet found one that was perfect...
