Author adMember Info


Full stock, official firmware, multilanguage (f.e. added polish)

Changelog unknown but it works lot faster than 130701.

(also can be rooted with framaroot)




first of all, you need MediaTek Vcom driver


installation http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2206421

( after install and connect phone it will self disconnect after ~3sec, it's the right behavior, SP Flash Tool will keep it connected) 


next, flashing with SP Flash Tool 



open SP F.T. (better with administrator rights, just for sure ;) )

select Scatter-Loading;  MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc.txt in firmware folder 

everything should appear, all checked, just be shure everything will flash from right folder 

(sudoeste from XDA suggested to uncheck preloader as wrong flashing of it may cause a nasty brick)


turn off phone, remove batter for few sec, DON'T turn it on

press DOWNLOAD in SP F.T. and connect phone with USB cable, 

if everything goes right green circle will appear with "Download OK"



Download framaroot apk from xda


add it to SD Card and install like any other aplication, open and root with SuperSu, Boromir exploit :)  

(may not work at first try) 



im not responsible for any possible damage

i flashed 130701 -> 130711 and everything's ok, dual camera works.

    why this ROM is declared as official firmware and on the official ThL website (http://en.thl.com.cn/Download/.....Index.html) i cannot find any official update/firmware?

    what are the steps to use this firmware?

    somebody tested this version?

    My firmware is ThL.W100.130529.JBV2.HD.EN.COM.8P32_MT6589. can i update to the version 130711?

      Hi, i flashed this version and everything is okay :)

      THL don't upload firmware of W100 on their site because it's export model, they're not selling it in china. I get this firmware from THL Support and shared with you :)

      i have flashed from this version (ThL.W100.130529.JBV2.HD.EN.COM.8P32_MT6589) and it works fine for now ;)


      Thanks for this ROM ;)

    How to install this rom?

  3. 08/03/2013


    after updating it is possible to go back to version 130529 or any other official version?

    (sudoeste from XDA suggested to uncheck preloader as wrong flashing of it may cause a nasty brick)

    Unchecking preloader as sudoeste from XDA suggested has any effect on the update?

    You have unchecked preloader?

    • 08/05/2013


      I did full flash with everything. Don't know what will do unchecked. 

      Also don't know about rom manager… I just did flashed like i said in description :D

    this application can be used for update instead of SP Flash Tool?

    • 06/14/2013


      In mod sigur nu !!!!!! Sp Flash Tool rescrie tot ! CWM rescrie doar ce contine pachetul de update ….dar e foarte bun la facut backup si instalat diverse modificari…

    hidden, thank you for your answers and for your support. :)

    i have successfully succeeded in applying the new update. Except for the new start-up animation, until now, I cannot see a big improvement or something changed.  :)

    Salut Sorin,

    capabilitatea mea limitata nu a vazut ceva shimbat :)

    sunt un mic incepator in ale ROM-urilor.. m-a starnit acest fabulos W100 si acum incep sa invat/vad/studiez..

    Today i recieved my new THL W100.

    Is this a safe way to flash to get CWM and oot acces. I flashed a lot with Samsung phones never had problems, but read in a lot of forums problems with the camera after flashing.

    So is there a backup plan when someting goes wrong.

  10. 08/09/2013


    Ok as i said, recieved my THL W100, did everything as mentioned in the tut. But i didn't uncheck PRELOADER…. And it works great and Rooted. Thanks.

      With 1307 rom I am not able to use the buttons on my in ear phone (did flash twice to be sure) and also the gps is somewhat slower so I reverred back to 2905 rom.
