hi all, am I right to think that going from a custom rom with unlocked bootloader and TWRP recovery to this Stock version I need to firstly flash this version with QFIL, then lock bootloader if I want OTA?
1.9.044 is the first build for the device. It's gonna be completely in Chinese. I remember seeing a video by someone on how to change the language. After flashing this ROM then you can flash any official ROM of choice and receive OTA updates.
Qn: after I flash the this CN ROM,
1.How will I get Google services.
2. Should I continue to use this CN Rom and do OTA with VPN enabled or
Flash any specific Indian ROM in any specific method to get the services.
I think the seller has unlocked the bootloader.
But there is no custom recovery installed and there is no SuperSU and not sure if the bootloader is locked or unlocked.
(I'll check on this and will update the scenario)
Also please provide links to flashing guide (CN Rom)
NB:Sorry I'm a newbie and forgive my less knowledge that I understand very less of the older replies to this thread.
After flashing my serial number changed.
I dont have the serial that i have on the box.
Please respond someone.
I think OTA s are based on Serial numbers.
If anyone find any method to set back to the serial on the box please inbox me.
2.5.1Method ONE: Unplug your USB cable. After that turn your phone off. Now press and hold the volume button, while pressing the power button for 0.5 seconds and plug in the USB cable in the same moment. (very tricky)
If it was succesfull your phone should appear at QPST/QFIL and you are able to press the download button.
That is correct. 1.9cn will lock the device to virgin state, so that you can get OTA either for Indian or Chinese version.
Flash only with QPST with flat biuld and edl mode. It works flawlessly.
After you have the chinese 1.9 installed, change the language, activate developer options and usb debugging and then you can flash indian rom for example and your phone will get OTA.
I first flashed chinese 1.9, then flashed indian 2.0 and it upgraded twice OTA to 2.5. After that you do a factory reset and you're good 2 go. Everything working great. The same procedurr applies for chinese rom. It will OTA itself to the latest Nougat if thats what you want.
I prefer indian rom since Gapps work like they should.
