what about this one? http://support.moulnisky.com/index.php?dir=Micromax/00_A%20Serie/A310/Software%20Versions/V2_%2029.10.14/

supposed to be a310 v2 29.10.14 (found by member blitz from myphone.gr)

the link looked shady but it contains a cpb file for 8297W_I01 (it needs the phone.info and params file edit to make it compatible with 8297w)

thread page: (scroll to the bottom) http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/f811/firmwares-collection-micromax-android-all-flash-file-only-here-mega-thread-1624105/index17.html

Is it based on kitkat?

4.2.2.

 

Yet again my imei got deleted.  :blink: .

Dont flash if you don't have imei backup by MtkDroidTools.

 

I guess this build is for 8297 without W (see screenshot baseband).

 

Keyboard is Chinese only, menu language CN/EN.

 

 

Update: after applying Miui_TD-to-W_Xs-4.6.7.zip is sim recognized.

What about looking 1st page / 2nd post from dakok, where you search for keyword "lost imei" ?

It is not wise to post your imei number on the web.Why did you buy 8297 version without W ? Try applying patch dakot suggested me 3 days ago.

On post  #3229 you can see my attempts, because i had similar issue.

 

 

About 1st step when using SP_Flash_Tool:

 

 

Use YGDP, load stock fw in cpb format, choose 8297W, wait untill file gets unpacked, within X:\YLXZGJ\YGDP\ you will find that file.

 

Last stock fw for 8297W is 041

 

WRONG!

 

You can't have w software on a td phone!

 

miky_maus didn't loose IMEI.

He has TD phone and he shouldn't use 8297W rom!

That guide doesn't use SP Flash Tool!

Last stock for his phone is 094, not any wcdma rom!

So it should be:

Use YGDP, choose 8297 in YGDP download configuration, load stock TDSCDMA fw in cpb format, ,....

the rest goes as the guide tells

 

TD stock roms in CPB format can be found at the first page.

Yes, I'm 100% sure your IMEI is not deleted. Just flash Xs patch for WCDMA :)

Next time, when you flash a TD rom, do the patch, then check the IMEI...

 

Fixed, got it working now (Miui_TD-to-W_Xs-4.6.7.zip).

 

Everything seem to be working (wifi,gps, bt), 2/3 g.

Keyboard is CN only, menus languages CN/EN.

Gaaps are not included.

 

root checker and tc were installed by me.

interesting lock screen, when unlocking you can go directly to: camera, unlock, call dialer, messager, some kind of net, cant make screenshot within phone.

with this mode it works as 3g (umts), selecting "gsm only" will produce working as edge.

Update within baidu update app that went to cwm recovery didnt work as ota update file wasnt on / path of sd card, it was saved deep within (/sdcard2/baidu...).
I moved it to / of sdcard and ran update in cwm.

Gaaps are gapps-jb-20130812-signed.zip, i didn't touch any other system settings.

 

This ota update to v6 isnt working for me, phone got stuck in baidu rom logo and battery was pretty hot(left it for +20minutes).

Guest elaadhn

you definitely did a bad installation,a310 has no issues.About battery:calibrate your battery,there was a post here yesterday about that,look for it

I installed it fine. trust me i've done more rom changes this past 2 days than in the past 2 years... 

both the regular a310 by Laek and the decrapiffied version had the same issues. 

 

anyone knows of a security/antitheft option in the coolpad rom or kitkat aosp roms?

This bauidu ota update is not so innocent, it removed my cwm with their chinese so i had to flash with YGDP + (cwm) recovery.img replace trick in order to restore my previous made working backup.

 

 

 

On www.yulong.com page i see file

 

What is this ? Upgrade ?

Looks flashable within cwm.

 

Usual chinese apks inluded in /system/vendor/operator/app/ .

Now is link of the file removed, but it is still on site, if you know address: http://www.modaco.com/topic/373953-total-noob-questions/?p=2240452

i and a lot of other users use decrapified as our main rom without issues.Nobody has the issues you mentioned.Just saying..

Tip:If you are using cwm always do ''format data'' not only ''wipe data''

official roms always replace recovery with the official one.You didn't had to reflash with ygdp,you only had to root the rom and replace the recovery from mobile uncle tools

Thanks a lot for info & screenshots!

 

It seems very interresting & looks promising, but unfortunately I see on screenshots much Chinese, even in main things like callendar or some menus(?) :(

 

How was overall impression of this ROM?

Is it as good as previous Baidu ROMs? (or better as I see it worked with gapps & even a bit better 3D score?)

I'm wondering what was the stock ROM base version (kernel & libs) for it. Updated to TD-SCDMA 4.2.2 09x?

Did you have a chance to test camera for photos & video quality, AF accuracy & speed, etc?

 

Dakok's impression in his reviews of previous Baidu ROM versions was so good that he almost convinced me to switch to Baidu :-)

And now you show 8436 score in Antutu 3D...  which should make great 3D performance.

2 problems with jonzalvo's pure aosp v2 rom: proximity sensor doesn't work and answer button of earphone xiaomi piston doesn't work (closes only calls).

the same problem of answer calls with xiaomi piston there is with official 018 kitkat. When I had official 4.2 036, xiaomi earphone button opened calls.

Strange, I'm on laek v4, when i started recording video, the format only 3gp. Is there any patch for it? Thx in advance

*without changing new Rom, of course.

Rom is pretty fast&smooth although (as every baidu relase) it is very much eye candy compared to coolUI or ever aosp :D , yeah calendar is Chinese, but menus are English.

I guess you can find some other calendar on g store or (un)freeze your beloved one into this rom.

This rom is worth keeping an eye on, each version is better.After final version will come out i will probably install it for main use (atm i am quite satisfied with coolUI 4.2.2 041).

I tested camera for a minute, auto focus (AF) is working fast, hadn't taken any pictures as it was dark outside.

Chinese apps are inevitable evil, luckily can be easy removed, not any main app is in Chinese (camera, messaging, call dialer, system setting).

 

For 2/3g use i updated it with "Miui_TD-to-W_Xs-4.6.7.zip", gaaps "gapps-jb-20130812-signed.zip".

 

 

btw, here you can find baidu rom for 8297W (Great God F1 Unicom Edition)
