    HELP !!!!!!!!

    Hi guys,

    Today I decided to go back to 1443 CU original ROM. So I flashed it with "format + all" and restore nvram with TWRP, but only IMEI slot sim card 1 was restored. IMEI slot sim card 2 continued as unknown. Please, someone help me to solve it!!!

    Thank you!

      try to look for on internet software program imei.exe, you can make a new file with IMEI sim card 2… and copy to folder..

      IMEI to….. /data/nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI/MP0B_001

    Thank you topstile.zgz

    But it didn't work. I was already treid: restore from TWRP; root and replace nvram folder and also IMEI.exe. None of these worked. Now I'm trying Meta 3g. But only the SIM 1 tab is shown. I do not understand what that means! It also shows "Dual Modem" and "MODEM 1" (it seems that MODEM 1 is referring to the phone). I'm lost without knowing what to do! There seems to be some problem that I do not see! Is there anything I can do?

    Please note this…

    AP Rom works perfectly in CU version… Just follow instructions. To solve SIMs problems, just copy modem file from CU version, and when you have flashed the AP version, root the phone and then overwrite the file in /etc/firmware with permissions like in this photo:




    You can also add execute permissions too…

    Everything will work fine, granted…

    Sometimes there could be a failure will starting the phone each time you turn it off, it has a bootloop while unblocking SIM card, to solve this just turn the phone in airplane mode, then when you start it up and you set the pin code, you wait a few seconds a disable the airplane mode, and everything will work fine (if you cannot connect to data connection try this process again)

    This is the price we have to pay for another model version… if not, you can use CU version


    By tthe other hand, I dont know how to solve flash tool problems, error 4001, which means it doesnt recognize it… Anyone have a solution for it?

      This does not completely true. I have CU version with two sim cards/IMEI (the packing box shows only one IMEI). I when I installed the ROM (I did this in several ways, including replacing modems), at all times the Internet and bluetooth have not worked. Simply the android does not recognize it! So I was forced to return to kitkat and had all the problems that I have said here.

    DO i need to root for TWRP recovery ?


    • 06/06/2013


      No you don't, in fact, once you get into twrp recovery, when you gonna exit the app, it will ask you to root it

    • 06/06/2013


      Please, check the answers in the post… all info is there… it seems you are lazy to look for it…

      When you exit twrp recovery it will give you an option to root it

    Hello, can someone please tell me how i can update to X2-AP S224 with Ota files please. Everytime i try to download from device, after rebooting to install, it opens TWRP menu and than nothing. I reboot system but update is fail.

    it's actually a pain in the a. the way the update is constructed. what i did to manage it, is to reflash temporarily lenovo recovery to execute it. check also the russian site 4pda, one guy has ported the update to function directly in TWRP. finally, the update only works if you have not made modifications to your phone, such as disabling/removing "standard" apps, standard launcher etc. my first attempt left my phone in a bootloop, i ended up reflashing S223 first, apply the update, and then recustomizing afterwards. good luck!
