THL5000 Ultimate ROM by Dimid/iv2012 in my opinion this is currently one of the two best ROM the best multilanguage ROM for THL 5000 (second is Classic V3mod ROM).

I am not the author of this ROM, made only a few adjustments and necessary small translations from russian (some texts were only in russian) to other languages. This is the last ROM from really excellent  ukrainian author Dimid/iv2012 (see below to his page and donate him on WebMoney). Dimid collected all the best form all his previous ROMs. Power consumption is good, ROM is multilanguage as Classic V3mod. This ROM is continuing of Classic ROM V3mod. He used part of the code fromPhilips i928 1436_00_V17A_CIS, THL 5000 v1.1.2, DEXP Ixion XL 5 v1.8H. Thank Dimid for all of his hard work. This ROM I posted here with his permission. Kernel patch for old displays was made by jitnovod from russian forum. I uploaded it here, to make ROM available for non russian speakers, which can't log on to the Russian forum.  I prepared modified version,  where removed the residual cyrillic and added missing translates.

    Thanks for this rom/post!

    Can you point out the differences to (your) v3? Would be great, because I only see something like dolby digital plus and menu "extras" as difference

    Now it seems that everything is already ok … Works perfectly. Great job … Congratulations.

    hey, thanks again for your and dimids work for the thl! 

    do you know the xtremeBeats audiomod? http://forum.xda-developers.co.....34729 

    im experiencing issues after flashing it like a "locked" volume button screen, multiple soft reboots and the phone keeps booting in some chinese developer menu until i wait a few minutes before i turn on the phone again. maybe its incompatible with MTK devices, i don't know :)  

    maybe the now added Dolby mod + V4A will be sufficient

    The Gamma still not yet fix the screen is too bright and not vivid

    • rbarat



      Gama is OK – default it set to new display type – core 1.1.2. check using this apk https://play.google.com/store/.....v.displaytester

      I have new dislay and my gama is 2,0. 

    • rbarat



      I think you made a mistake – you have a new type of display and install a patch Kernel110_old_disp.zip (old filename was (THL5000_Philips_ROM_v3_Boot_110_fixed.zip). This patch is only for older phones from the first production run. They use a different display type. The displays have different gamma value. Install ROM again without patch.

    Added patch Adblock_EN.zip - Adblock translated to english (Settings/Additional Settings/Adblock)

    It is possible to translate it only to one language – threfore used international english :-)

    Hi, added Add_services in english and new patch for Camera MP4:
    Add_ServicesEN.rar – unpack RAR, will get two ZIP files – first install Add_Services, second remove Add_Services.

    Thanks to you and Dimid!

    @ rbarat do you prefer this rom for v3?

    My Gama is 1,6 what kind of file should i install? old display or new display?

    Thanks in advance

    Steps to installation: wipe int sd Card. Does this really mean all directories and files on internal SD-Card will be wiped. I asked cause I have Mjusic and maps from navigation-apps stored on internal SD-Card. Will this be wiped too?

      It is not necessary, only recommended, I do not. I recommend it for sure that the SD card will not contain any waste that could adversely affect the work of the new ROM.
