    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.

    I had stock rom 5.1 on my freetel FTJ152D. It was fine and rooted.

    Then I flashed it with this rom 6.0.


    1- it have a stupid start up logo "demo version"

    2- Touchscreen don't work anymore

    3- screen got very bad and blurry

    4- there is no root, impossible to root it with all apps online or offline

    5- no imei because it can be rooted and impossible with another way downloaded listed above

    This is a rom that Freetel was already working on, it can be rooted with the stock firmware, lollipop, that comes already with the phone.  If you want to get rid of the demo boot logo just download, if you alreay haven't, the stock lollipop version.


    Replace the logo from this version with the stock lollipop logo.  If you want to get rid of the little message at the bottom left of the screen, the lk.bin that comes with the stock lollipop gets rid of that.


    Trying a few other things, this method just does not work for me so far.
