To install this rom you must, of course, have the device with the privileges of the Root and CWM recovery installed (if not, look at the end of paragraph).

Download the Rom and copy the .zip file in SD card.

Restart your device in CWM Recovery Mode .

Is advisable to perform a full wipe (wipe data/factory reset, Wipe cache partition, in "advanced" Wipe Dalvik Cache and Wipe Battery Stats) to make sure that you haven't problems!

You start the installation from CWM with the usual system (Install zip from sdcard).

You will start a setup wizard with commands via touch (whatever your version of CWM).

Be guided by my installer.

Just finished, reboot into Recovery and run in any case the Wipe cache partition.

If you prefer to keep all your settings you can just try to install without deleting anything, overwriting the existing Rom (Rom overwriting the stock has not given me any problems and I kept all my Users App's and existing settings). I repeat should be no problem but obviously this is not the correct procedure! But if some app sooner or later were to crash or your system to become unstable then you should redo the installation as I have described above.

Which author of this Rom decline any liability for whatever may happen to your device as a result of the flash itself.

If you are afraid, then don't install anything and you will sleep peacefully the night, otherwise you do it at your own risk!

In any case, just do a Nandroid backup before installing anything and every problem should be averted.



For the Root: Motochopper AutoRoot and driver ( here you can see link and steps: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show….php?t=2247537) . (links to Motochopper updated http://ge.tt/1Y5eO5f/v/0?c )

To install the CWM recovery: MTK Droidtools and driver ( here you can see link and steps: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show…&postcount=417 )

Resolution of any problems that may occur

as a result of the installation of the Rom

A few things in life there is no solution and it is not the case of our smartphones. Whatever the problem I think and I hope to fix everything.

In any case, I invite everyone to make a Nandroid backup from Cwm recovery, a backup of the app and settings, with the programs of your choice.
And remember to transfer your backup even on the computer.

Then I would like that you pay close attention to the version of the build of this smartphone because there are so many and all so little compatible.

Only if you have done all the backups and you are able to restore the device then you can write me relatively few bugs in the rom or any other problem.
I do not want him to feel the pressure of those who are desperate because he has locked the phone and does not know how to go back and often not even able to tell me which version of the device has because he had not stored anything (adventurers in confusion).

I'm sure that you will understand that is one thing to fix the camera app that does not start, one thing is don't let me sleep because as an unconscious you wanted to install a new Rom without having the means to restore and often without even reading it was another device.

So ATTENTION! … You did not do a Nandroid backup? … You are not able to restore the device? … Well, do not write to me, because I will not answer to you!!





I have put, too, the link to the CRT recovery version 2.1, which I made for this device. It 's a good recovery full touch. The features in this link  https://www.needrom.com/mobile/recovery-cwm-full-touch/



P.S. I'm Italian and sorry if I have not written in good English

    http://ingsalama.com on this website there are instructions to revive the phone after a failed firmware phone haipai i9389 2gb version

    Hello Olidan,

    Last week I received a new pre-rooted Haipai I9389.
    I have installed CWM Recovery & made the necessary backups in preparation to install your rom.
    However, I noticed the build number of my phone i11_ly_20130821, is different to your rom 11_y_20130530. Will this prevent me installing your rom? *
    Extra info from Mobileuncle Tools:
    ro.build.id = JOP40D
    ro.build.display.id =11_ly_20130821
    ro.build.version.incremental = eng.root.1377064931
    ro.build.description =e2011_ly-user 4.2.1 JP40D eng.root.1377064931 test-keys

    Best wishes,
    * my previous experience with CWM is that will not install incorrect roms [a safety mechanism, I guess]

      p.s. Build number should read 11-ly-20130821 [not i11-_ly-20130821]. Also, forgot to mention that phone is 1gb version.
