UPDATE SuperSU 2.46, updated LENOVO CloudSync, Shareit,Updated GApps  Velvet, Camera FV-5,  Apex/Lenovo Launcher only.

The flashing process WILL WIPE your already installed apps.(Backup first)


GO to : Settings>>Storage>>(you will see "Default Write Disk") >> select External Storage.

This will make your External SDCard becomes your internal SDCard (sdcard0). and I recommend you use 32Gb (class 10) SDCard but please check your already installed apps as they might become "uninstall" and you will have to reinstall them .So now your internal data storage has become 32Gb instead of 8GB.

The S017 ROM must be installed via TWRP recovery there and instructions on how to install TWRP either through flashing using SPFlashTool or using MobileUncleTool is given in the instructions sheet.

First you must already obtain root access to upgrade – if you are are not rooted and on stock ROM you must gain temporary root access by using VROOT (which is to be installed on PC and will Root the phone via USB connection- or RootMaster to be installed on phone) this will enable you to use MobileUncleTool or RASHR Recovery flasher to install TWRP recovery.

Copy the zip file on the external sdcard and  go into TWRP. choose INSTALL, select this zip file.

The time settings defaults to Asia/Kuala Lumpur and GPS settings defaults to South East Asia,continent is Asia. DO NOT use MobileUncleTool/Faster GPS/GPS Doctor apps  to change the gps.settings. you only have to edit your locale in the file called "gps.conf" in system/etc folder. Download EPO data files for MTK devices app is included.

※Please make a backup of your device before installing or updating ROM

      Adblock by LENOVO is 25kb size mine is 1024kb it is the host file. Yoiu can make that to 0byke  by making a dummy file with the same name it is in the /system/etc folder.. but I dont know why anybody would want to to disable Adblock.Even after thsi you still cant access whatever site you want to there is another file by Lenovo original that I dont want to disable since it blocks a lot of known video piracy sites (I think that where you want to access) I will not teach anybody to access piracy site , you have to do it yourself at your own risk.

    gps not working after flash this rom. checked on gps.conf, ntp alr set to my…  gpsTest is yellow color even at open-air area.

      gps.conf after changing to your locale did you  set the NTPSync also to your locale? It must synchronise with your countrys ntp server atomic clock. and also the continenet must also change I dont have problem in Asia when continent is set for Asia and my country and TTPSyc is also set to my countrys  server and I have 3 phablets and 3 tablets except for one which is a hardware issue. Any MTK devices should work spendid with the settings. If you dont belief me google fpr the best settings and they will all tel you the same settings and and then I added specific settings for MTK devices which is not applicable to non MTK.

      Flash successful.. Everything goes very well. But than again, my network is gone. My IMEI got wipe out!!! My phone is no more than just a wifi phaplet nw… So many works to do to get it fix again. Be carefull flashing roms guys, many mtk would face the same issue. Just make sure to backup everythg including your IMEI. Any suggestion to solve this without PC pls share guys. Thanks..

    For anybody who is thinking about ROOTING this ROM — DONT DO IT!! becoz it is already prerooted once it is flahed it is an already rooted ROm with SuperSU and busybox installed if you try to "rro" it again you WILL SCREW up your phone.

    The latest 2nd version with SuperSU 2.01 (the current one) I have laready corrected some issues about not able to flash and bugs in the ROm but the GPS from the first version SHOULD NOT be a problem at all,. The only thing that you have to do with any new flashing of ROM wit CWM/TWRP is you MUST format dalvik-cache/cache and the best is to do factory reset before flashing ANY new ROM. If you fail to do that all sorts of unknown problems will crop up. I can vouch for my ROM that it doesnt disturb the IMEI since I flash and reflash the ROM countless (20 times or more) times to develop the ROM (without losing the IMEI) before flashing a new ROM please ensure that you backup your old ROM first and I recommend the use of TWRP because for this version (TWRP) you can chose to backup the NVRAM or not (the NVRAM is where your IMEI info is). I dont see this in CWM recovery (maybe it doesnt backup the NVRAM??).

    As for the GPS I can confirm it is because you didnt clear your dalvik-cache.My GPS is instantaneous even inside my house.

      I’ve repaired my IMEI issue by flashing stock and restored IMEI by engineering mod. I guess i didn’t do a proper flashing causing a corrupt NVRAM previously.
      By the way your rom is working great. Any way we can an updated TWRP recovery version for our a889? Or should you advice if we can flash any twrp recovery update version from any open source or should we only use the version which ported to be compatible with our phone?
