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/androidrom/romdetail/20132

Download fast from my google drive: https://drive.google.com/?tab=wo&authuser=0#folders/0B36Ay7pVtck6a0tCWHNHaWFnNDA

 

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/androidrom/romdetail/20155

 

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

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...

absolutely right... the AOSP is not the most appealing (I am more for customized rom), but every other rom has some sort of bug that (for me) never allows to use the phone the way i want it. AOSP is the one with less flaws and every time I try a rom, i always finish restoring my backup with AOSP at maximum after half a day! Poor Dakok is trying every way to escape from it, flashing every rom that comes out from the chinese forums, but he will finish with aosp too one of these days :D

:D

Luckily there's only a bug or two per rom

so I'm pretty sure that there will be

several proper releases sooner or later.

One of those Chinese devs should learn

how to do a bugless rom. I hope. :)

yep, as I told you I never managed to find a chinese rom without at least one major flaw. I hope they really improve in this! :D

Baidu is a very good rom. The latest version has an awesome world cup theme :-). But the rom has some bug. The worst is that the phone lost the signal sometimes, and date and time don't refresh... It looks great

Hi borsosg

Its a good news for me. Bcoz i always control my apps activity by data usage. I tried some ROMs and all of them have some bugs. In my opinion last official versions are more stable. Now i am on 029 lite version. Very nice ROM with one serious bug for me, data usage is not working. Maybe i should try to install coolmanager.apk manually? Dakok knows more about it maybe he or other enlightened friends will tell me  :)

@bore

Most of the roms are stable, but many of them have a bug or two. Look back at posts, there is a google maps version that works fine.

You don't need to flash CPB rom. Most important is that you do (if you don't have this already):

  • driver
  • root
  • CWM
  • system backup through CWM

When you do this, you may flash roms through CWM (recovery) and it's easy to go back to your backuped system in few minutes...

 

@Robi4ok

Few suggestions: 

  • apkextractor (probably won't work but it's a good app for saving apps installed from google play and other non-system apps)
  • simple installation - probably won't work
  • copy to system folder with root file manager/explorer and set same permissions as other apk's in system folder
  • try to find coolmanager.apk at china websites (hint - add china word for smartphone to coolmanager.apk in google search)

 

If you want to use coolmanager.apk from another rom, take a look at system folder and see if there are odex files with same

names as apk files - if they are - you can't use that apk

 

@borosg

Thanks mate :)

I'm not sure that the app which is responsible for data usage named coolmanager.apk. I've search everywhere even in official ROMs but cant find. There is similar apps like DataUsageLockScreenClient.apk, CP_CButton.apk and etc.   :(

Does anybody knows exact name of app which is responsible for data usage?

 

BDW Dakok i remember that you was interesting with making multilanguage Coollife UI, is there any news?

Hi!

 

I removed from my rom some apk-s, witch I think the part of CoolManager. Coolmanager is a program group that included the data usage app. Here is my shared Drive link: 

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B36Ay7pVtck6WlNWYnJvUHRsdDg&usp=sharing I think the app that you need is: CP_NetUserMgr.apk and odex

I think you must copy to root/system/app with root explorer and add permissions. Then restart phone. Maybe you can install from there... but I'm not sure. When I installed this rom, I freezed these apps, and data usage doesn't work. But when I unfreeze them data usage work again.
