This rom should work on all ZP980 and C2. I think it will work on C3 as well, but had no confirmation of that.


Added sony walkman (There was no music app before)

Added nova launcher instead of the stock one

Added build.prop tweaks

Improved overall speed


Fixed many bugs that were present in v2.



Back to basics :) Felt like my previous versions weren't as good as it could be. So I decided to start over and went back to basics.

Hopefully everyone will enjoy it, I have uploaded new screenshots with this version as well.

It's just optimized, if you want something changed, use the included gravitybox/xposed installer app.

Other then those 2 apps, it's completely stock.



1. Sony display technology software

2. Build is optimized, Camera has been improved and videos + photos are better looking.

3. Ghost touches (If caused by software) are now less frequent.

4. Sony bravia engine for better looking videos and photos.

5. English supersu root

6.. Improved GPS, first fix might take awhile, but after that it should be quick as lightning with good accuracy.

7. Has all the google apps including gmail, play store, maps etc


I'm not someone thats really good with roms, so dont hold me responsible if something goes wrong, i'm just trying to help and making this rom avaible for wider public :)

Basic instructions:

If you want to flash custom roms, you'll have to root first, then install a recovery.

To root you can use the following tool: http://forum.zopomobileshop.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=877&extra=

After you've rooted:

1. Install the app Mobileuncle Tools from the google play store.
2. Download this recovery: https://www.needrom.com/mobile/zopo-c2-twrp-v1/ You'll get 1 file called recovery.img. Put this on your phones sdcard.
3. Go into the app Mobileuncle Tools and select Recovery update. Select the recovery.img you put on your phone earlier and press ok.
4. You've now flashed a custom recovery on your phone. Restart your phone.
5. Now you can enter recovery using Mobileuncle Tools app as well, just tap Into recovery mode.

6. If you're asked to give supersu/superuser rights in any of the above steps, allow it.

You can now install roms.

Alright here are the instructions to install this rom

1. Download any rom for your device that's .zip file extension
2. Put it on your phone's sd card
3. Use mobileuncle tools app to boot into recovery.
4. When you're in recovery, wipe cache, wipe dalvik-cache and do a factory reset.
5. Press install in recovery and select the .zip file you downloaded.
6. Let it install, it will say when it's finished. first boot can take a few minutes.

If you want to backup data etc you can use an app like titanium backup.

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

    Thank you for your good work! 


    Is there a change to improve sound ( musikfx sometimes stops on my ZP980,…. ), or integrate proper working Equalizer ?


    Best regards

      There was done something to sound, however that was in the chinese rom, so I did not do it. Since I can't read chinese, i'm not sure what he changed. but sound is working fine.

    Hi there, my phone will get no 3g signal after the phone used in few hours (in dual sim standby), even I change the 3g service from sim 1 to sim 2, and then sim 2 will keep in no signal but if I disable the 3g service, it will be working fine ( in 2g mode), so I am wonder, do this rom fix this 3g problem??? Thanks

    Which buttons do you have to press to start the TWRP recovery? I have a Zopo C2

    • 06/25/2013


      You can either do it trough an app called Mobile uncle tools


      1. Turn off the device.

      2. Then attach it to USB cable

      3. Hold power + volume up button

      4. When you see the zopo logo release the power button but keep holding the volume up.

      False positives :) I saw that that scanner also went off at dezmens rom, i would change virus scanner. I tested with avast and avg and both say theres nothign wrong.

    • 06/25/2013


      Trying a few things now to get rid of the false positives to!

    • 06/25/2013


      tried 6 different contacts and phone apps but that virus scanner all reports they're virus. so it's for sure false positives, i suggest to mail the dev of that app and tell them about it!
