Chuwi Vi8 DualOS CW1506

Author adMember Info


This is my mod of stock-ROM (Android 4.4) for Chuwi Vi8 tablets.

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


Before flashing it, spend a time and do TWRP-backup of your current 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 my TWRP-Recovery (look in needrom.com for it.)
  • Reboot to TWRP-recovery.
  • Do TWRP-backup of a stock-ROM.
  • Do 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 System. That can take above 5 minuts.


Specification of a ROM:

  • DPI changed to 190.
  • Cleared and debloated.
  • Replaced boot-animation – Google Edition style.
  • Replaced some system apps.
  • Support FAT32 and NTFS on MicroSD or OTG-media.
  • Improved battery life.
  • Some optimizacions.
  • ROOT and SuperSu installed.
  • Added init.d support.
  • GAPPs replaced and updated to function correctly.


If you like my work I would be very grateful if you buy me a beer. :(

    On my VI8 dual CW1506, the android part was corrupted and was not able to boot. It stucked at CHIWI logo. But I can boot windows part normally.
    My current Recovery was CWM.
    So, I have to fastboot flash the recovery img to TWRP.
    Then I flashed this rom then it work perfectly!

    Thank you very much for this rom.

      @sudloa, The problem is CWM by Agafonoff can not mount boot partition and can not flash boot.img. My TWRP can. ;)

    Aw, seems like I couldn't find the way to install Xposed framework.
    Every time I install the framework, the bootloop occurred then I have to reflashed rom again. Any idea?

      You need to do two step:

      Download Installer http://1drv.ms/1XjSwV2

      Install APK and run it, but doing nothing, exit from app.

      Create file /data/data/de.robv.android.xposed.installer/jit_reset_offset and write 0×98 in them, save it.

      Now You can run Xposed-Installer and install a framework and other stuff.

      Good Luck

    Thanks for the rom! It works much better than the original. Any plans to release one for Android 5 or 6?

    Hello, one question, Is this Rom going to change my partitions?

    Because I want to use the 32 gb on Android (which I'm already using). So, if the ROM will change the existing partitions for lower ones, where do I change the partition sizes of this ROM?.

    Hello thank you for your work. I want to install this rom, but I have difficulties to install TWRP.
    First I need to install superSU right? This part I can not succeed.

    Could someone explane step by step how to unlock the bootloader and install superSU and TWRP on my Chuwi VI8.
