Hi all :)

This is the first REAL kitkat rom for zopo 980/990, is entirely (kernel and android) compiled by me from mediatek source 
everythings works, only some minor bug are present…but it's only the first public release :)



09/10 – Ver 1.0.7

  • Wifi Tweak (little improved speed and stability)
  • Flash sync tweak
  • Front camera up to 8MPX in Third-party app (only 3MPX in stock camera app)
  • Radio FM app now works without headphone
  • AROMA: mod for remove reboot option in powermenu
  • AROMA: mod for install a new boot logo by aquilacd70
  • AROMA: mod for switch back to use Superuser instead of Kinguser


02/10 Ver 1.0.6_new

  • changed some commands in flash script, if you are unable to flash the 1.0.6 try with this new version


01/10 – Ver 1.0.6

  • root : switched from superuser app to kinguser app
  • vendor lib: updated the precompiled vendor lib
  • wifi: different firmware files
  • wifi: tweak some power parameters
  • display: now in aroma you can select the display resolution (FullHD or HD). the HD resolution is nice for boost graphical speed in games
  • kernel : fix for working softkey in HD resolution

some info about resolution HD and FULLHD

in the version 1.0.6 i have created a script for set the display resolution (and DPI) in HD or FULLHD.
HD resolution help a lots in games.

to change the resolution during the flash just activate (or deactivate) the option in aroma, enable if you want to use the HD resolution, disable if you want to use the FullHD.

every time you want to change the resolution just flash the rom with the option you want (you need flash because it is necessary to change the kernel depending on the resolution chosen)

There are 2 little problems:

  1. the first boot after changing the resolution (only the first time) there may be icons with wrong size (too big or too small) in the status bar and launcher, just reboot for fix
  2. at HD resolution the boot animation is correct, but a few seconds before completing the boot becomes huge, it's just a visual bug

10/09 – Ver 1.0.0

  • first public release


know bug:
- camera stock show only 8MPX, with other app (camera360, google camera etc) u can select 13MPX
- the compass works but is not accurate as on JB
the vibration is low compared to JB
- ART not work (for now…)
- maybe other…let me know :)

for enable/disable the function sweep2wake, doubletap2wake and pocket detect i have created a script.
just install a terminal emulator and write:
and set to 0 what u want to disable
pocket detect use the proximity sensor for disable s2w/dt2w when phone is in pocket (or when the sensor is covered by something)

need this recovery to flash this rom, also need a full wipe (if u update from previous version u can wipe only cache and dalvik)

In aroma installer u can select if flash for zopo 980, 990 or C3
for 980 and 990 there is a 2 variant, A and B (differ only in the rotation of the screen)
try first with the A version, if screen in landscape mode is upside down reflash with the B version
there is also an alternative version with different proximity driver, if proximity sensor does not work try with this

    Hi Paolo, I've been following your development eagerly in androidiani, and first of all let me congratulate you with this work.

    Thanks for this rom. I need an help: after installing the new recovery and your rom I can't  enter into Recovery mode from Mobile Uncle.  Is it possibile to restore previous rom?  P

    • 04/18/2013


      just use an app like quick boot for restart in recovery

      or power off, remove and reinsert the battery, connect usb cable and press volume up and power together for power up in recovery mode

    • 10/24/2013


      Unfortunately any attempt to get into recovery produces a black screen and phone locket, until battery is removed. Vibration active without any effect. Obviously I tried to start recovery from many apps and connecting usb cable, with the same result. I tried to replace recovery updating from Mobile Uncle, uselessly.  Unpossible restoring previous recoveries. My device is C2 Platimun 1 giga ram, 16 g rom. It seems quite serious. Any further suggestion?
