    this is an unbelivable news for umi zero owners like me… i dont think to install it right now because of these bugs but after a clean update i'll try it and i dont think i wont change my rom to any others… 

    Very big thanks for the porters…

    Hi, why change to an unstable rom? or with bugs?

    The rom 3.10 work fine

    Thank's for the others

      Because ppl wants to try… and finding unknown bugs is very important for the rom to be developed… if you are not intrested in this rom, you can keep using your rom but u can not judge anyone asking why..

    I installed the rom, very smooth……..some bugs however:

    Cannot use the phone function- network-unavailable

    Contacts cannot be imported from sim card

    and the wifi problem

    Camera doesn't work, need location for storage.


    For the rest really like this rom…..keep up the good work!!!

      Hi, sorry for hearing that. You Need to install everything as told in the instruction. And read everything carefully. Xposed will fix the camera Problem. SELinux will fix the Network Problem. Sometimes you Need to wait up to 1 Minute to be able to connect to wifi and sim. The contact will be imported after a while ( just restart your phone sometimes and the contacts will be there).

      At the moment, the developers are working hard to fix everything and to give you guys the chance of feeling real lollipop on umi zero.

    Hi. I have not installed. When flashing the file, throws an error. Update error binary file

    Why should I install a rom with bugs? I don't understand the matter…:-*

    • 05/13/2015


      That's my opinion too. A good work will be without bugs. Sorry but I don't want to be a "beta Tester". So guys if you will do a "good work", eliminate these bugs and test your Roms before posting. That's my opinion.

      It's my opinion too but…

      It takes some time to built a 100% bugfree ROM. We just share this now to people who want to help us finding the bugs or develope it. Or for those who just want to check it out. Its a beta, so of course there will soon be a new version also. This is not meant for the enduser yet who want a 100% bugfree ROM, that's also why we list the bugs that currently are present in the ROM.

      If you dont want to be a beta tester, then just wait until the final ROM is finished. But until that we will still share the Betas for those who can be interested in it.

    Well, you guys need to understand, they want to give you the feeling of Android Lollipop for the Umi Zero. Aswell, they cant fix evereybugs untill MTK will release the sources. So dont think that negative why. By the way, they released a newer build which only bugs are:

    - No audio/video-recording

    - sim / wifi could take up to 1 minute to connect

    - wifi forgett password

    And this are the only bugs they cant fix because of the missing sourcecode.

    So try or dont try but dont be so ungrateful. Its hard work

      There's a group of people that are developing LOLLIPOP 5.1 so that,the rest of us can enjoy a fully up to date experience on our phone's.

      You are not oblige to install this rom on your phone to give feedback on how it's running, but the least we can do is wait for the fully functional rom quiet and patiently without annoying the people who are working hard so YOU and I can enjoy the lollipop.

      So I think that if you are not commenting to help, just don't comment at all… Just saying…

      Keep up the good work you guy's ;)

    I highly recommend you to install the -zero.zip . Its a stable build. 

    Greetings DSCH8 :)

    ive installed this rom succesfully, but be aware even if u didn't installed twrp, it still works, but if u installed twrp everything seems better, but still there are a lot issues.

    i didnt installed using rootjoy, i'd installed using recovery boot.

    evrything else seems to be working, but the main issue is the internal storage, thats why u cant make screenshot, photos, download, because theres no internal storage, i hope this helps, thanks

    s7yler you talk about fix camera problem with Xposed. How i can do that?

  10. 04/08/2015


    @Xixon  Okay for all. Understand and appreciate so much efforts from developers; we're not obligate to install that, of course, and we are really patiently and sorry for annoying you. First I'm not interested in Lollipop. Second I'm only asking. if you don't like that it's a problem of your own But listen, I will say only one time: do not ever say "just don't comment at all", it is rude and not very fair on your part.
