    thanks for the update Ora…

    just confused about this part "Choice the SEC_RO, CACHE and USERDATA image file from archive"

    DId you mean not to select those parts, right?

      iiiiiOf course, it was a typical "copy and paste" error. I have clarified it. Too bad that you then have a bad vote must submit …
      I have now also found a signed update zip available. The original uplad went wrong

    Hi Ora,

    Thanks !!! for your work,

    tryed to use the FlashTool folowing your instruction

    Deselected "Preloader" as mentined ….

    when clicked F9 comp said preloader not selected do you want to continue clicked YES

    when conected phone ( no battery)  comp. said MT6589…. not recognized need DRIVER !!!!!

    Not all peoples are "Experts" as you are when you write a procedure please be more detailed so "dumb" people like me can read and use it from A to Z .

    (Title : "ROM Version: ROM Android 4.2.1" should be 4.2.2 ??? )

    Appreciate your work !!!

      Hi marcus,

      1 st: I have added a link to a flash tutorial now.

      2 nd: I think it is a good idea to use my update zip signed_U650_system_upgrade_root_20130827.zip to upgrade from a previous version.

    hmmm…. I ported a s4 rom to u650, Im using it and is very fast and stable (no reboots). But the owner of the rom, I think it´s socrates, doesnt awnser do my question, that is to give me permission to post it. Whatever, is very very bast and it´s really s4 look a like, with that little tab with quick shortcuts, seeting look a like, statusbar look a like, great performance with pure performance and grapichs hd. I want to post it, but I dont wanna do it without permission, what ever, I created a ROM based on your Stock ROM, and its bazing fast to, but I need to theme it (learning).

    After checking the hardware specs, I was shure, that Ulefone u650 2G/32G, More Fine S6pro and Carpad T65 are identical phones under different brands. So I took the risk and flashed a Carpad T65 rom -> https://www.needrom.com/?s=Car.....ch&scat=75 – you will find different custom roms, a ported S4 ROM too.

    Feel free to try at your own risk. ;)

      thanks netdaemon,

      so what do you say  about T65 ROM compared to this U65 upgrade ROM?

      any better?

      gesture sensing works too?


  8. 12/22/2012


    I only tried the newest Carpad T65 official ROM https://www.needrom.com/mobile...../carpad-t65-3/

    I think, there is is no great difference in stock ROMs with nearly the same date. I only checked the basic functions, no gesture sensing. My U650 has a bad gsm signal compared with my other phones. I have no or bad signal inside my house, so my main interest was to check, if Carpad has better drivers. But same problem with Carpad. Now I´m back with newest rooted U650 stock ROM.

    Hi to all.

    I have 3 questions for my ulefone u650:

    -How to save my IMEI's data? There is an app or i have to use some flashtool menu?

    -Is better this custom rom or the newest official rom "Update 09/04/2013"?
    -I never ever flash my ulefone u650, there is something i have to do, before trying a flash with flashtool?

    Thanks everybody in advance!
