Iocean x7

Developed by Sambaaa
58 different languages supported!


Hello everybody, I prepared a new custom rom compatible with ANY Iocean x7 based on latest stock firmware for Iocean Elite (02/12 version). I implemented Aroma Installer from Gamma v1.2 onwards and rom zip is now the same for any Iocean x7 (Youth, Youth Turbo, Plus, Elite).



GammaRom Thread



Report there your feedbacks both positive or negative, they'll help me to improve this rom in the future! 

Read carefully first two posts in GammaRom thread on xda forum before flashing in order to get the best experience using this rom:

  • post #1 is related to rom's features and installation instructions
  • post #2 contains a brief post-installation guide on how to configure it at best.



If you appreciate my work and this rom, you can always support me offering me a coffee clicking on  button. It'll help during my sleepless nights spent developing for this device 
If you are disgusted by my work and find this rom simply ridiculous, well…you can still offer me a coffee in order to work harder and better to improve it

Installation guide

To flash this rom you need a custom recovery as CWM or TWRP. You can download TWRP for all Iocean from here
Otherwise if you prefer CWM, download this CWMrecovery.img for Iocean x7 Youth/Youth Turbo or this one for Iocean x7 Plus/Elite and flash it through MobileUncleTools app.
I strongly recommend you to take a Nandroid Backup before flashing this (or any other) rom. I recommend you to backup your IMEI too. To do this you can simply write both IMEI on a piece of paper (you can find them in Settings > About Phone > Status > IMEI information)




To install it, follow these simple steps:

  1. Download zip file of the rom (see Download section) and put it in your sdcard - PUT IT IN EXTERNAL SD IF YOU WANT TO REPARTITION
  2. Reboot into recovery
  3. Wipe data (factory reset if you're using CWM), wipe cache and wipe dalvik cache (advanced section in CWM) - DO NOT WIPE SYSTEM
  4. Install rom zip from sdcard/external sdcard and follow Aroma installer wizard
  5. Aroma installer will give you the possibility to repartition internal sdcard (more available space for apps).
    If you choose "Do nothing" option, go to point #6 of this guide
    If you choose "Repartition" follow instructions in the spoiler below:



    Repartitioning IntructionsSelectShow





  6. Follow Aroma instructions and reboot once finished
  7. Be patient, first boot may take longer than usual
  8. Read post #2 to get the best from this rom (do not skip this)
  9. Enjoy

    record in .mp4?

  3. 08/27/2013


    don´t found on my iocean x7 elite :(  .dont pass of bootanimation

    • 05/12/2013


      try to reflash, remember wiping cache, dalvik & data. For what concerns .mp4, right now it still keeps stock rom behaviour for what concerns media format. I'll see whether to change it in the future.

    after trying to install your rom, will not let me install any rom: (

    • 05/12/2013


      I guess you repartitioned /data, right? in case of issues, simply choose 1.5GB /data storage again and follow the whole guide. Don't forget wiping /data each time you launch aroma wizard (two times if you repartition) otherwise /data partition won't be resized and you'll get into a bootloop or phone won't detect internal sdcard. Anyways in case of issues just choose 1.5GB as stock rom.

  5. 08/27/2013


    thanks but your rom does not work, it is loaded into the bootanimation

  6. 08/27/2013


    please tell me the steps to insalar your rom on my x7 elite, however much I try not be, if you could upload an elite or just to tell me how I would appreciate

    • 05/12/2013


      First of all I suggest you to use attached TWRP recoveries, they're deeply tested and confirmed working on all iocean with this rom. Secondly if you get issues, just keep 1.5GB stock /data partition for now. Thirdly, if your rom got somehow messed up, you could try to flash above a clean stock rom, just to be sure. Once finished installing wizard, it would be useful if you can provide me a recovery log (option prompted at the end of installation). That will tell if anything went wrong during installation. ;)

    wifi not working? fix it, thanks

  8. 05/12/2013


    works for me, that's probably something specific with your router not compatible with some tweaks, try this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1wjb.....nl/wifi_fix.zip

    hi Sambaaa after flashing gamma rom shows "networks or sim card error".i can not take or receive calls.

    i see this problem is only to me,but with other roms my sim cards works normal.

    can you help me?

    • 05/12/2013


      Hi, check under settings>about phone that your imei is correct. Otherwise flash patch linked above and if still not working, remove 3g turbocharger entries in build.prop
