  1. Does anyone here still use Coolpad F1? and/or above ROM? I've found two bugs while using the ROM above that I haven't found earlied: - only one SIM card works and I can't get 2nd one to work or at least getting recognised (tel says there's no SIM card in slot), even after exchanging SIM card places, it still says that the same slot doesn't have any card (there's visible one or the other card, depends on which slot it's put in). - it doesn't recognise BT SmartBands around but BT works with other devices - tried few of them from different brands (C1s, M3, Xiaomi Mi Band 3 & 4) and none of them are visible. I don't believe that's limitation of the chip not supporting BLE or newer BT versions, as I have other phones on MT6580/6582/6592 with Android versions from 4.2.2 to 7.1 and these phones see all these bands. Did anyone had such issues or has any workarounds/fixes? The most important for me is the BT here as I wanted to monitor my daughter's moves & condition using any of the bands that I have around, but I'd like to avoid changing ROM / cleanup everything as besides these two bugs I find it the best working & smoothest I saw so far on F1. Edit: OK, I've found that when I enable BT & location in power save mode and leave both enabled, then make phone reboot, then for short time after reboot BT works fine and discovers all devices nearby, so I was able to configure the app for smartband for continous connection. It worked good enough that it made smartband firmware upgrade (it took more than 10 minutes, but it didn't drop connection and upgrade was successful). After that smartband rebooted and phone didn't re-establish connection again (I had to reboot the phone again). After phone has booted, it worked again and so far works, but I know I can't touch BT or location settings in phone, because it will stop working again until next reboot. Did anyone found something like that? and/or solution for it?
  2. Well, I have online GPS tracking and just checked - no problems at all, all tracks have been recorded successfully and accurately.
  3. This Atomic OS is really great. I had a long break since trying different ROMs on F1 last time but I haven't seen such flawlessly working ROM since stock. If I had it before I changed my phone, I wouldn't change it. F1 now works better than my LeTV Le Pro 3 with Snapdragon 820.
  4. @Jpower73, great work as always! Thanks a lot. Flashed Atomic OS with old TWRP today. Got an error about unknown command "[]]]" at the end of flashing (AEX Lite didn't have any errors on flashing), but it works fine for now. My daughter is still testing it, but first impression is great - no lags, everything seems to work fine, including all her apps which she wanted to use. In few hours of use, it hit one random reboot. What's the best solution for using external sdcard for apps on Android 7.1.2?
  5. @Jpower73, does on any of your ROMs or other ROMs you've tested, camera work in other apps, like Snapchat, Musically (TicTok),... ? I have prepared mine F1 (still with AOSP 6.0.1 so far) for my daugher, but she's got disappointed that camera didn't work in any of those apps and it's been a reason to use this phone, because her Coolpad Modena has too weak CPU (awfully laggy) to handle these apps.
  6. @Jpower73, could you please update link for AICP? Content has been removed from mega.
  7. LeTV LeEco Pro 3 Elite x722 - great phone after Coolpad F1 at really good price. I use it since few months. Some other F1 owners bought x722 or other LeTV models, too.
  8. Well, it's up to you. I have it since few months or a year. No problems with GPS. Just dualsim and 3G for 2nd card made problems for 3G network when received MMS on 1st card, but then using Airplane mode for a moment solved it. Rather no random rebots until it's overloaded by my >650 installed apps, but my new phone (Le Pro 3 Elite x722 on Snapdragon 820) gets short freezes with so many apps, too - it needs cleanup, too. In my case, I needed at least Android 6 as a requirement for apps that I use and they work on Lineage great, as expected, but they couldn't work on 4.2 and 4.4. Btw. on Lineage you can try Google Camera 3.2 with HDR+
  9. Yes, based on Android 6.0.1. Stable enough for daily use.
  10. Sure, but 4.4 gets outdated by Google and apps developers - many apps require Android 5.1+ already. That's why I have switched to Lineage based on Android 6.0.1 and finally all apps that I needed work here, but I would switch to MIUI if it was based on any Android 5.1+.
  11. What about MIUI for F1? Does it use any Android base newer than 4.4? (like Lineage or ResurectionRemix ROMs)
  12. Few more bugs in this ROM: - phone unlocking sometimes gets hick-ups after few hours of use - it's irritating especially when someone calls me (I hear the ring but display is disabled for few up to 10 seconds before I'm able to answer), but after unlocking performance is smooth (it's not any of my apps issue - I use much less apps here than on 4.2.2 and nothing new) - maybe it can be better with other Launcher / Locker or set higher priority to locker, - accelerated video playback of 1080p videos (even recorded from camera) locks up after 1-2 seconds - apps are still responsive, showing progress and audio is played, but video is stalled, but 720p videos work fine and software video playback of 1080p works fine, too (this is the same for all video apps) - Cisco AnyConnect/OpenConnect VPN connections are getting established without an issue, IP address is set, ping to gateway works, VPN connection apps can see the routes lists, DNS'es, etc. gathered from VPN gateway, but none of the additional routes is set in kernel routing table, making not possible to connect to anything in remote networks besides gateway - it seems it's just something minor and maybe I'll find workaround for that if there's not any yet (btw. 4.2.2 used toolbox for route applet, 6.0.1 has toybox - not sure if it's just name change or totally different tool set that can have different parameters).
  13. During few days of use all I can say is that this ROM is great, but it has one quite annoying bug, as settings menu allows to enable network transmission on both SIM cards (even at the same time), but when network data transmission gets enabled on 2nd SIM (which is set for calls & SMS) then none of both SIM cards can access network data - need to restart the phone, then enable airplane mode for a moment to disconnect from cellular network, disable it and then enable network data transmission only on 1st SIM card to get network data transmission to work again. It's a big issue as even incoming MMS on 2nd SIM can try to enable data transmission for MMS download (it fails to download it anyway, but also breaks network data transmission on 1st SIM card). I've tried to analyze the issue in logcat, but I haven't found anything specific to this issue, besides problems with DNS resolution & IP connectivity timeouts of running apps. Do other LP/MM ROMs have similar issues? Btw. besides that issue, I'm going to keep this ROM as: - it's fast, - doesn't drain battery, - all tested apps work fine (including root & Xposed-based), - camera is good enough also (after some fine tuning of Snap Camera), - cellular network range seems to get improved a bit compared to stock 4.2.2 (but I'm not 100% sure about that as I haven't visited all the places where I had weak signal before, yet), - GPS catches fix & holds it much better than on 4.2.2 (even in bad weather conditions and inside of buildings - it helps to locate with wifi & cellular networks, too), acurracy of location coordinates is not always the best, but imo, it's ok), - no problems with WIFI (besides that sometimes it doesn't autoconnect to known networks - need to choose it and I saw workaround for it, but it's not a problem for me at all) - cellular network data transmission works stable, too (if it's not hit by bug above) - WIFI tethering works - not sure about BT yet - it got broken for me on previous ROM and now I see improvement as after enabled it's seen by other phones, but couldn't pair with Lenovo A850+ (with stock Android 4.2.2 based also MT6592), but I might have lost BT MAC address NVRAM configuration on previous ROM (at least it's shown as "unknown" in settings) - need to do more testing - memory management seems to be better than on 4.2.2, even without any task killers - I only miss the option to move apps to sdcard - it's Android 6.0 feature drop on all MM ROMs - there are two options: 1) external sdcard can be formated & encrypted as internal memory (but probably can get problems with recovery then due to encryption) and 2) use external sdcard for media & documents only (XinternalSD app helps with permissions, and allows storage of some apps data on external sdcard, but not everything) Btw. on this ROM phone (Coolpad F1 8297W) is visible as Micromax A311, even in Google Play & in apps.
  14. I agree, I wouldn't mind if ROM will be served with Lineage/CM Trebuched Launcher only, but having Nova inside convinced me to give it another try for at least few days (I was using Nova for few weeks long time ago, but since then I've been changing launchers, going from few different ones and ending on CM Launcher, but now CM Launcher is growing too much and has too many ADs). Thanks, I'll try to write something more about it after few days of testing. I was delaying move out from 4.2.2 as I worried about stability, battery, performance & camera, but looks like there was nothing to be afraid of - it's very good ROM. Big thanks to Jpower73, [email protected] & others for their work on this ROM! From the other side - it looks like this ROM has all the features that I needed from Gravitybox (I have removed it while trying to fix bootloop and so far I don't miss it for now).
  15. Thanks a lot! This LINEAGE OS 13.0 (MM) ROM is really good and your screenshots howto was very useful! I haven't noticed it earlier. So far just spent on it ~24h - playing with it all the time with messing & fixing back & configuring stuff in similar way as I had it on 4.2.2, but so far so good and even upgrade from 4.2.2 to 6.0.1 directly went smooth and so far everything what I couldn't run on 4.2.2 & 4.4 works fine now, even stuff that interacts with low level API functions/libs, like Android 5.1+ camera apps (ProShot). Just few suggestions for next releases: - get rid of Android O-Nfy or get a working release - sooner or later it makes bootloop on SystemUI continuous restarts (I lost many hours finding what made me bootloop with uninstall&reinstall of Xposed & all the modules that I had configured to find which one was broken and it was all by Android O-Nfy, which I haven't even touched - I had to remove this APK from /system/app and problems disappeared - disabling it didn't help, needed to remove it) - Nova Launcher 5.3 is available now, with Google Companion plugin & Tesla Unread, so worth to consider And few remarks for comparing with 4.2.2: - ROM is fast and everything seems to work fine, out of the box, looks like it were official upgrade (but of course I know it wasn't) - Photos are less pretty - less contrast & saturation (not as bad as I thought it will be, but still worse than on stock 4.2.2 with it's stock Coolpad camera app), but I'm going to play with Snap camera settings so maybe it will get better - OpenGL ES is slower (tested shortly in Asphalt 8), but not that bad (probably comparable with 4.4 ROMs) - so far everything that required Android 5.1+ or 6+ works fine (and now more apps are available in Google Play Store) - battery seems to drain slower than on really slimmed 4.2.2 (I didn't know it's possible) - feeling like got new phone :-) at least this phone has got new life :-) need to do more testing then I will provide more feedback later
