New in v4.0:

1. Updated Google Play Store to v5.4.12

2. Updated the Lollipop stuff to NEXUS 4 Android 5.1 Lollipop LMY47O.


Based on the OFFICIAL ROM by UMI: UMI X1S 20130520-220931

Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean


1. Fixed the AutoFocus by using libcameracustom.so from UMI X1S 20130528 (I didn't use this newer ROM as base because of multiple issues, check the comments here).

2. Pre-Rooted with SuperSU v2.46 (Latest Version).

3. REMOVED ALL the Chinese apps and some useless MediaTek stuff. Performance and Stability are NOT affected at all, I tested everything for months.

4. Google Play Store v5.4.12 (Latest Version).

5. Removed Stock Browser, Email, File Manager, Music and Video, Camera and Gallery (You can use the apps of your choice for these tasks). I recommend the following: Dolphin Browser for Android, K-9 Mail, Amaze File Manager, MX Player Pro and Snap Camera HDR.

6. Removed Stock SMS/MMS app, because of this. Our phone is affected and the only solution is using Another app for SMS/MMS viewing/sending. I recommend chomp SMS because it can handle Dual-Sim very good.

7. Replaced Stock Sounds (Alarms, Ringtones, Notifications, Ui) with the ones from NEXUS 4 Android 5.1 Lollipop LMY47O.

8. Added the Bootanimation from NEXUS 4 Android 5.1 Lollipop LMY47O.

9. Deodexed and Zipaligned.


1. Use CarlivTouchRecovery v2.7 to flash this ROM. DO ALL 3 wipes (Data, Cache, Dalvik) before!!!

2. Use GravityBox [JB] for customisation. It requires Xposed Framework.

3. Use MTK EPO GPS Fixer for a FAST and WORKING GPS. It requires BusyBox.

    Hi. Your custom Rom looks excellent. Would like to try. Can you please add a bit more detail on how to install your version?

      Install like any custom rom. I recommend using the recovery I ported, but you can use any cwm recovery for our mobile.

    Very nice rom indeed, thanks a lot!

    Anyone knows how to use themes? I installed GravityBox, HK Theme manager, installed a couple of free themes, but no theme shows up in HK.

    Thank you

      I do NOT recommend using themes, because there are so many differences between manufacturers, and one theme cannot cover all of them. It is not like cyanogenmod, where a theme can work on many devices. If you wish to change the look, I suggest Icon packs, they don't affect performance and some of them look really good. Check this one for example.

    Thanks booci, I agree on that. It's only that I become compulsive when I see new features ;)

    Any chance to have back the auto shutdown/wake up?
