    Hi RAWMAIN,
    I did not know that there was this model KIWAMI !!, which is very similar to our ELEPHONE VOWNEY LITE.

    You did a good job with this ROM and I would like to ask you if you could help us carry the ROM to our model VOWNEY LITE?

    A greeting.

    Hi rawmain,

    you did a excellent job, especially when we can not find roms for freetel phones. I have loaded this rom to my FTU152D but my IMEI gone invalid.

    1: phone doesnt enteres into meta mode so Maui Meta method fails.

    2: SN Writer also fails as phone restarts

    3: CDS information is not available in engineering mode, CDS needs rooting and all rooting method fails.

     

    I will be highly obliged if you can provide stock rom for FTU152D or any method to make it working.

    Thanks in advance.

    BR,

    Shahid
