Ported from KitKat firmware of STAR W800.

Not recommended for everyday usage, just for testing.

Important! The touch screen with newer (non lighted bottom buttons) touch digitizers not working!

- rooted and full root access over adb


- added CM Security, WellBrightness and Total Commander, updated GAPPS.

- default Launcher is Apex

- Carliv Touch Recovery v2.5 with Back button (Touch control must be disabled in Advanced menu)

- Aroma File Manager added to system (runnable from recovery Carliv/Aroma File Manager menu)

- internal SD card, not emulated

You have to use Firmware Upgrade mode in Flash Tool. Never use format option, except you know what do you do exactly.

    Can't install with download in flasftool, must use rom update and than loos IMEI. When I put NVRAM back, or IMEI backup over

    Mobileuncle, I have empti place. Rome to trow.

      Ok, i must suggest Firmware Upgrade mode.
      You have to use this mode because of different block device addresses.
      If you forced to any other mode or use format option, you WILL loose your NVRAM, otherwise not.
      What did you do before Firmware Upgrade?

    I started with just download, but the answer was classic, PTM must be dowloaded or something similar, so I use Firmware upgrade

    Ksanci, I have backup from IMEI Mobileuncle, if I do restore, Mobileuncle say OK, all don (so something) but IMEI is not done.
    I tried several time but never the good result, even if I delete apk Security
    If I restore my old Backup, phone don't start.
    I must flash with Flash Tool old ROM 4.2.2 and after I restore my phone to return to my good installation.

      For the correct IMEI you need not only the nvram partition, but need the protect_f and protect_s partitions too.

      If any of these partitions are corrupt, the IMEI will be invalid in case of factory reset.

      I made a lot of firmware upgrades but never lost the IMEI or any partition.

      apk Security: what does it means?

      The backups of various android versions not compatible with each other! So, if you make version upgrade, your old data backup will not suitable for the upgraded version! 

    • ksanci



      It is possible that your nvram partiton was already corrupted. The restoring of backuped data restore the IMEI too.

      But what happens when you make a factory reset on your good installation?

    I know that all phones are not the same.
    If I change ROM, I always make factory reset.
    Apk security is a control application installations, like antivirus.
    All this does not matter, it's an old phone that I no longer use.
    I tinker as I 've nothing else to do, do not break your head with it.
    Thank you.

    explain me it –  the BACK (MAIN) CAMERA DOESN'T WORK AND CAN not WORK, in what a problem?

    • ksanci



      Because of the base drivers in lk.bin and kernel in boot.img. The lk.bin not contains the W450's rear camera driver.

      You can not modify these. And changing of lk.bin to an original lk.bin from w450 is not working without kernel change, but kernel replacing not possible because of the different block device allocation.
