How to install the ROM

You have to use my Unoffical TWRP 3.3.1-0 Recovery to flash your device later. The file in the attachment is zipped and valid for the Recovery (don't extract!)
Please backup NVRAM and IMEI with TWRP BEFORE flash! If you lose your MAC / IMEI after flash, you can restore it in 2 seconds!

First time installing the ROM
Boot into TWRP -> delete Dalvik, Cache, System and Data -> Install the ROM ZIP -> Install GAPPS  -> Restart your phone -> thats it!

Upgrade from earlier version
Boot into TWRP -> delete Dalvik, Cache, System -> Install the ROM ZIP -> Install GAPPS  -> Restart your phone -> thats it!

Update to newer version with patch
Boot into TWRP -> Install Patch ZIP -> delete Dalvik, Cache ->  Restart your phone -> thats it!

Bugs and how you can fix it

- to reduce flickering on apps (only few have this issue), go to: settings -> developer options -> animation duration scale -> animation off


Whats works?
- everything

what doesn't work?
- none

Is the ROM rooted? 
No. You can install Magisk or SuperSu via TWRP

What about other languages?
You can choose your language as usual

Are the Google Play Service already installed in this ROM?
No. You have to install newest open pico gapps (ARM -> Android 7.1 -> Pico)

Is this rom for the old or new eMMC?
The current kernel allows to support both versions. it doesn't matter if new (DL2016) or old (Q823MB)

We'll get soon MIUI, IOS or Samsung TouchWiz as ROM?
No, No and No. All three ROMs exits but they are so buggy.
I dont will publish these ROMs. They are not ready as daily driver.

What is the different between source and optimized in changelog version?
source: build the custom rom directly new from source code
optimized: only changed some files / fixed bugs from latest rom

      All bugs can be fixed, I guess. You need to find the fix for it. I don't will waste my time currently for this old budget phone. Good luck.

    I have Cubot Note S on Stock ROM – I have tried many times to install TWRP on it using SP Flash Tool but it never works, is there any way to install this ROM using SP Flash Tool even if you don't have TWRP? When I try using SP Flash Tool to install TWRP it appears to have worked but upon restart with Volume UP button pressed it boots directly into Android. I have used SP Flash Tool before to install TWRP on Cubot Max and Cubot Dinosaur phones, so I know how to do it on these phones.

    The Cubot Note S Stock ROM comes with built in Malware which causes advertising to appear randomly at times. I'd be happy if I could just ROOT the Cubot Note S so I can freeze or uninstall the System Apps which contain the Malware. Or totally replace the Stock ROM with a custom ROM that doesn't have any malware installed.
