    I hope you can help me out. I have a Cubot X17s. I like the phone quite much but there are preinstalled Spywares and Trojans on it - of which I cant get rid of.

    Will this ROM work with the CubotX17s. My current build-number is Cubot_X17_S_5092C_1_20160305. .Thank you in advance!

    I just installed the ROM on a Cubot X17_S. I can confirm that it works just fine. No more Adware and preinstalled Rom-Viruses. The phone works even better now. German language is also included, what I was not sure about.

    Adds so much to the phone! Thank you very much!

    Hi. I'm from Russia (I have bad english) and I have Cubot X17. I want to tell my history how I get success with flash X17 (probably it will be helpful). So, it was too much long process for me, it was a new experience for me. I had firmware V06, and no matter how hard I tried, I could not make a flash using the Flash Tool. In addition, the drivers MTK and other were not installed correctly and to the end. I have windows 10 x64. I guessed that I need to disable the digital signature drivers (for this you need to press and hold the Shift key and click on the reset on your computer, and then choose to disable the digital signature drivers). After you do this, you need to install the drivers. Where them (and not only them) to find them? I downloaded all the materials from the official site of the Cubot for my X17 (this is: the official firmware V04, the driver MTK and Flash Tool), I also downloaded all the three official drivers MTK for my X17 (URL: http://gsmusbdriver.com/cubot-.....x17 ). Now you can install all 4 drivers. Next, I install the official firmware V04 through Flash Tool (remember, before that you must enable the boot loader and enable debugging usb) (phone must be turned off before the flash). Now you need to install custom recovery TWRP V04 through Flash Tool. Now you need to check it has turned out to install custom recovery. To do this, you hold down the volume button (+) and the power button. Wait for a few seconds, the manufacturer's logo appears, but I advise you to wait for the third time the manufacturer's logo appears, and only then release the buttons. If you enter an custom recovery TWRP, I congratulate you. Then you must backup all your data on the micro SD card. Now download Cubot X17 Custom Rom – Android 5.2. It will be zip archive. Now ZIP ARCHIVE (dont extract this!) you need copy in your phone or SD card (I installed from card). Now you can wipe the following folders: SYSTEM, DATA, CACHE, DALVIK CACHE. Now you are installing custom firmware. Installation is very fast, but the system load takes about 5 minutes. Success.

    I've just installed your ROM.
    It seems to be working fine ! Thx

    Still, I have just one problem… When I'm in playstore and try to search for an app, the store close itself almost as soon try to use the keyboard

    everything works fine until i want to install ROM, i power up the phone in recovery mode with ROM copied in the multiple locations at the phone storage, but when i want to install it i just simply cannot find it. What am i doing wrong?

    • Razi3L



      Have you unzipped the ROM ? If you did, that's why you can't see it

      Where in your phone have you put the ROM ?

    That bug appered because my file somehow was with .rar expansion. I just simply changed to .zip and it worked like a charm.
