1. Before proceeding

 

Write down your phone's IMEI.

 

You can find it printed on a sticker that is affixed to the phone underneath the battery.

VCOM Driver package for Windows (from XP to 10) & SP Flash Tool (Windows & Linux-64bit) have been included in this package for your convenience.

 

 

Once ready launch SP Flash Tool with Administrative privileges, go to Download Tab and click on 'Scatter Loading' by the right.

 

In the window that pops up, go to the folder where You've extracted the rom You've downloaded, and select the scatter (scatter file is a text file with the word "scatter" in its name) then click Open.

Once You've got the 'Success Message' disconnect the phone, slot the battery back in, then power up the phone.

 

 

3. Apply / Restore IMEI

 

 

After flashing You'll have to apply / restore mobile phone IMEI (that You have written down before). In order to do so You can use MAUI META 3G v8.1520.1 .

 

MAUI META 3G v8.1520.1 installer & required preloader/CDC drivers have been included in this package for Your convenience. Once installed, run MAUI META with Administrative privileges (run as administrator).

 

1. Click on Options menu tab and select/tick Connect Smart phone into META mode .

 

Then click on Reconnect button. The color of circle will start changing between red and green & below You'll see the connect message.

 

2. Connect the switched off phone with battery to the PC via USB cord .

 

The phone should boot up then get stuck at boot animation in META mode. The circle should now be yellow in color, indicating that the phone has been successfully detected .

 

The Get Version box will open automatically. Otherwise select it below Action menu tab .

 

3. Click on Get target version button.

 

4. Minimize Get Version box once phone details appear to confirm phone detection .  Then select IMEI Download below Action menu tab.

 

5. Click on Change NVRAM Database File & select BPL_GUI MDDB file provided with the ROM package.

 

Then on SIM_1 tab enter the first 14 digits of 1st SIM IMEI you've written down before. The digit entered in the CheckSum box will be the 15th digit of the IMEI. Once done, click Download To Flash .

 

6. You'll get Download IMEI to flash successfully confirmation message.

Go into Settings Advanced Language & Input and tap on Current Keyboard in order to set Google Keyboard  (AOSP).

 

Reboot into TWRP recovery (*) , install SuperSU, then do Wipe Dalvik / Cache & reboot

 

 

(*)

On unrooted devices TWRP recovery can be started only from ADB (adb reboot boodloader command – USB Debug must be enabled in Settings Developer Options).

 

On rooted devices You can install & use QuickReboot .

 

Tap on SuperSU and initialize it.

 

Reboot again into TWRP Recovery to install OpenGApps. You can use Nano minimal package or Micro one (that includes Google Calendar, Gmail, Google Now, Google Launcher).

 

 

Install app to enable immersive mode / disable nav-bar.

 

I've attached GMD Auto Hide Soft Keys – Root (available on Play Store too) that doesn't have issues related to keyboard recall.

 

Set same General Settings as shown aside & tap on first square.

 

Then, reboot system in order to enable full immersive mode.
