Features ROM:

This file contains two ROMS! + ROOT !!

ROM 1: ThL_W5.130129T0.JB.V1_17.HD.EN.COM.4P8_MT6577_MT6620_3H2
This is the official THL 4.1.2 ROM.

- Has Google APPs and Play Store (No Chinese APPs)
- Has working front and rear camera for ALL serial numbers of THL W5
- THIS IS NOT A ROOTED ROM! CAN USE TO FLASH BACK TO OFFICIAL ROM

ROM 2: ThL_W5.130226.JB.V1_17.HD.CN.COM.4P8_MT6577_MT6620_IMX105
This is a custom 4.1.2 ROM.

- Has Chinese APPs, no Google APPs
- Rear camera does NOT work for many serial numbers.
- DOES have ClockWorkMod Recovery portion
- WE ARE ONLY FLASHING THE ClockWorkMod FROM THIS ROM!

 

Install ROM:

You can either just flash the official 4.1.2 ROM, or you can also flash the ClockWorkMod Recovery portion and reboot into Recovery Mode to root your THL W5! This will root any version of THL W5.

Details:

Here is the full guide that I wrote up to help install. It is saved as a text file in the download.

There are three parts to this guide.

PART 1: USB Drivers
PART 2: SP_Flash_Tools
PART 3: Recovery Mode with ClockWorkMod (CWM)

 

PART 1: USB Drivers

If you have not installed the USB drivers for your THL W5, you must do that first! I've included three different ways to install the drivers. Pick the one that works for you. (I used the MTxx_USB_Driver)

If you don't know how to install USB drivers, google for a guide. There are MANY guides already for how to install USB drivers.

 

PART 2: SP_Flash_Tools

SP_Flash_Tools is what you use to flash a new ROM!

I've included two ROMs in this file.

ROM 1: ThL_W5.130129T0.JB.V1_17.HD.EN.COM.4P8_MT6577_MT6620_3H2
This is the official THL 4.1.2 ROM.
- Has ALL Languages (Not just Chinese and English)
- Has Google APPs and Play Store (No Chinese APPs)
- Has working front and rear camera for ALL serial numbers of THL W5
- THIS IS NOT A ROOTED ROM! CAN USE TO FLASH BACK TO OFFICIAL ROM

ROM 2: ThL_W5.130226.JB.V1_17.HD.CN.COM.4P8_MT6577_MT6620_IMX105
This is a custom 4.1.2 ROM.
- Only has English, Chinese, and Russian
- Has Chinese APPs, no Google APPs
- Rear camera does NOT work for many serial numbers.
- DOES have ClockWorkMod Recovery portion
- WE ARE ONLY FLASHING THE ClockWorkMod FROM THIS ROM!

1. Launch SP_Flash_Tools.

2. Click "Scatter-loading"

3. Go to the ROM 1 "ThL_W5.130129T0.JB.V1_17.HD.EN.COM.4P8_MT6577_MT6620_3H2" folder. (MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN THE CORRECT ROM FOLDER)

4. Select "MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt"

NEXT STEP IS A LITTLE HARD. YOU WILL ONLY HAVE 1-2 SECONDS TO TRY. IF UPGRADE DOES NOT START, TRY STEPS 5 AND 6 AGAIN.

5. Turn off your THL W5 and take out the battery. Put the battery back in. (Leave your THL W5 turned OFF. If you have to redo Steps 5 to 6, only take battery out and put battery back in.)

6. Plug your THL W5 into your computer. In SP_Flash_Tools, click "Firmware -> Upgrade" BEFORE the THL W5 begins to charge. (You will only have 1-2 seconds to hit the button after plugging in your THL W5. If it does not begin to update, redo steps 5 and 6.)

7. Wait for the Firmware to finish upgrading. When it is finished, you will have the official THL W5 4.1.2 installed. (If you need to only restore your phone to factory settings, stop here. To root, continue with rest of steps.)

8. Close and relaunch SP_Flash_Tools.

9. Click "Scatter-loading"

10. Go to the ROM 2 "ThL_W5.130226.JB.V1_17.HD.CN.COM.4P8_MT6577_MT6620_IMX105" folder. (MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN THE CORRECT ROM FOLDER)

11. Select "MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt"

IMPORTANT!!! WE ARE NOT FLASHING THE ENTIRE ROM! WE ARE ONLY FLASHING THE RECOVERY.

12. Deselect (no checkmark) everything, except for "RECOVERY"
[ ] PRELOADER
[ ] DSP_BL
[ ] MBR
[ ] EBR1
[ ] UBOOT
[ ] BOOTIMG
[x] RECOVERY
[ ] SEC_RO
[ ] LOGO
[ ] ANDROID
[ ] CACHE
[ ] USERDATA
[ ] FAT

13. Turn off your THL W5 and take out the battery. Put the battery back in. (Leave your THL W5 turned OFF. If you have to redo Steps 13 to 14, only take battery out and put battery back in.)

IMPORTANT: Hit the button "Download" in SP_Flash_Tools for step 14.

14. Plug your THL W5 into your computer. In SP_Flash_Tools, click "Download" BEFORE the THL W5 begins to charge. (You will only have 1-2 seconds to hit the button after plugging in your THL W5. If it does not begin to update, redo steps 13 and 14.)

15. Wait for the download to finish. This will be very fast, as it is a small file.

    I don't know why, but after installing the first ROM, I can get to CWM in english. And if I install the "recovery" part of the second ROM, my CWM is in chinese.

    And in the first ROM , after installing it, I have no "camera application". I must precise that at the beginning, with the original rom in chinese and english, I have the "camera" app. But when I click on it, a message appear " camera app is not installed". So I put it in the trash can, thinking that it will go back to the menu application, but it has completely disappeared. And when I tried to re-install ( 2 times ) the rom ThL_W5.130129T0.JB.V1_17.HD.EN.COM.4P8_MT6577_MT6620_3H2, the camera app is still not there. My THL is a YOSBX. Thanks for any help

      After flashing the CWM Recovery, did you reboot by holding Power Button + Volume Up? If you hold down Power Button + Volume Down, you will end up in a Chinese recovery app that isn't CWM. The first ROM shouldn't have CWM included, as it is an unmodded ROM.

       

      My serial number is Y0CBX. Sorry, the source I got the ROM from indicated it worked with all serial numbers. My info may be wrong.

      The directions are in the included guide in the download. I also posted them here, but for some reason, NeedRom cut off the last portion of the guide. So for the final Part 3 on how to root:

      PART 3: Recovery Mode with ClockWorkMod (CWM)

      1. Copy the file "Root_Superuser_3.1.3_Busybox_1.20.2-Update1-signed.zip" to your THL W5 sd-card. (DO NOT UNZIP)

      2. Unplug your THL W5 from the computer and turn it off. Reboot your phone into Recovery Mode. Hold down the Power Button and the Volume Up button at the same time. (Hold for 4 to 5 seconds, then release. You should see a black screen with 3 choices.)

      3. Use the Volume Up button to scroll to "Recovery Mode". Select it by pressing the Volume Down button.

      4. You will be in CWM Recovery v.5.5.0.4. Use the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons to scroll up and down. Use the Power Button to select.

      5. Scroll down to "install zip from sdcard" and select.

      6. Select "choose zip from sdcard".

      7. Scroll down and select "Root_Superuser_3.1.3_Busybox_1.20.2-Update1-signed.zip"

      8. Scroll down and select "Yes – Install Root_Superuser_3.1.3_Busybox_1.20.2-Update1-signed.zip"

      9. Congradulations! You are now rooted!!! Go back and select "reboot system now" to reboot.

    Hello.  Nice work. In my case, flashed rom 1 first.. since i didn´t know how to install google play , y flashed to rom2, rear cammera was working. When I tried to switch to front camera, it would never return to rear camera. Rebooted the phone but is says no app installed. :(

    I ll play a bit with differente versions of firware until I get one stable with both cameras working.

    Except for that. the rom2 works like charm on mine.
