    I need your help with some info.

    I have a phone that looks identical with this (listed by seller as 5.5 inch but measured as 5.3 inch)

    Sensor and fromt camera are identical located. 

    However is / was listed before reflash as  


    Android 4.1.1 Kernel 3.4.0 

    MK6577 dual core

    I can use Start 7180 and a few other images (jbla688 driver) but I loose Back / Home led touch buttons, lost also proxy light sensor. Screen driver that works is LQ053HNYP32B. Interesting is that Home, Back buttons are still working at the very bottom of the LCD visible screen same width from the side edge, so it appear that vertical scanning does not go below that point.

    However one day during reflash yellow line stopped at 97%

    I am knowlegable about a lot of electronics and hardware, not so good with android as I just start

    learning about it. My question is:

    Can you please check and let me know (if you have access) what must be the correct driver?

    I tried to copy the lk.bin filr from this image in the MK6577 Note 2 but it did not work.

    I used Motochopper and got Superuser on the fly

    Phone is rooted, image is a bit smoother than the original, I lost 500 points (now 13400) at

    Antutu benchmark but probably the resources are used for the screen.

    However the image looks by the icons more like a 4.0.4 than a 4.2.3.

    Is identical in look like the original one. The only interesting feature is the wireless

    monitor, but I do not know how to use it.


    I send my donation, thanks.

    ty cata,

    I believe we need proper documentation on these ROMs so others will not flash brick their fones. theminimum is to document the build prop.
