Chuwi Vi8 CW1506 RemixOS 1.0 by kostyamat

Author adMember Info


This is my port RemixOS v.1.0 (based at android 4.4) for Chuwi Vi8 tablets.

The ROM is situable for CW1506 S/n 1401-1508 only and not function correctly on other CW15** or S/n 1509-1512.

Please! Before flashing it, spend a time and do TWRP-backup of your stock-ROM.This will prevent potential problems, if for some reason you do not like my ROM  or something goes wrong.


  • Copy ZIP to external MicroSD.
  • Install TWRP-Recovery (look in needrom.com for it.)
  • Reboot to TWRP-recovery.
  • Do TWRP-backup of a stock-ROM.
  • Aprove simple wipe a data (factory reset)
  • Install ZIP – (If You have error message about "dont mount system", return to principal screen TWRP, again go to "Install" and repit installation.)
  • Reboot to System. That can take above 5 minuts.


Specification of ROM:

  • DPI changed to 190.
  • Support FAT32 and NTFS on MicroSD or OTG-media.
  • Improved battery life.
  • Multilanguage.
  • Improved Multitasking and RAM optimization.
  • Multiwindows interface like Windows8.
  • Pre-instlled ROOT.
  • OS-Switcher to Windows. (Curtain of notifications Android > Icon "Off" > Switch to Windows OS)



  • Because of stupid bugs in codes of the stock RemixOS-launcher, that support DPI=160 or 320 only, which are too small and too big for our tablet screen. Also Remix-launcher does not support widgets. Due it, I changed Remix-launcher to Nova. As a result of it, You can not change a wallpaper of a lockscreen and put or change icons of other apps to taskbar.
  • Another one bug is stupid error in multilanguge support. Any things can be do not been translated correctly or can be not translated.
  • If You use language different to languages such as English, Russian, Ukrainian, Chinese, You can have a problem to enter password when connect to WiFi. In this case go to advensed setting of WiFi and set password from that pop-up window. Sorry, but I can not correct this error for all languages.
  • If Yoy have any issues with PlayStore, run app "Installer Google Play", tap "Install and reboot" aprove root access.


I would be very grateful if you buy me a beer. :(

      Hi there,

      I installed this ROM and also have no sound from speaker or headphones.

      Did you find a solution by any chance?

      Many thanks,

    Hi, thanks v..m. for your posts.  I have owned a Chuwi Vi8 for over a year now, but since installing Win 10 and then trying to reinstall Win 8.1 I have been unable to boot my tablet.  By the way its a CW1506 serial no. 1623.  After turning tablet on, it goes to an error msg:  INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE, and goes into a loop, starts again and shows the msg, again and again. 

    I'll gladly buy you a couple of beers if you can give me a stepbystep instructional guide to get my tablet working again.  Appreciate a reply.
