EDIT: For those of you who want the ROM, I've uploaded it in the thread on this link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...-u980-t3147968


hi every one
I recently got an android, it seems to be a china-android
its called Hisense, hs-u980
the detailed specs are in these links:
---------------
http://www.hisense.es/es/electronica.../124-u980.html

http://www.dspecs.com/sp/735/Hisense...fications.html
---------------
the OS is old and boring 4.2.1 , I searched for a custom ROM but no luck

BUT I found THIS site, and it seems to have ROMs for it:
-----------
http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kw=%E6%B5%B...device=1&pn=0&

http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3039480252?...device=1&pn=0&

http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3079914712?pn=0&
-------

but its Chinese so I don't understand a thing, even with Google translate, because I have little - but hopefully enough- experience with custom roming and rooting, and the translator messes with the words

so pleeeeease anyone help me

: D

Got mine last week. It's actually pretty nice for Android 4.2.1, hoping Hisense will upgrade to 4.4

Sorta at times yes. I installed camera JB+. Pictures are a bit better, but I mainly got it for the option to record video with flash. Camera360pro now that will always give you crisp pictures, even on my Huawei Y300, I was amazed.

Hi not sure if this is too late for you:

MLS-Team-Miuiv5-4.1.18-Hisense-HS-U980.zip
h**p://pan.baidu.com/s/1kT9J3z5

MLS-Team-LeWaOS5-14.01.17-Hisense-HS-U980.zip
h**p://pan.baidu.com/s/1o6jUQ7o

MLS-Team-Google-AOSP-Hisense-HS-U980.zip
h**p://pan.baidu.com/s/1dD3PKu1

I have tried all these Chinese developed custom roms and they all work nicely on my Hisense U980.

It is a nice phone but too bad not many roms support.

There are some other roms like ColorOS and other versions of MIUI which I have not tried. But I can share the links if you are interested. Contact me if you are interested.

hi
below are instructions from my memory and links from untested roms. follow at your own risk. cheers

Vaguely, the steps are:
1) Rooting: I used Baidu 1 click root (chinese) . Some guy used Framaroot and works on u980:
hxxp://forum.xda-developers.com/general/help/how-to-root-chinese-hisense-phones-t2889998
2) After rooting, install Mobile Uncle Tools (below)
3) Use Mobile uncle to install the u980 twrp recovery (CHinese version only below)
4) copy roms to root of sd card
5) Boot into recovery and install downloaded roms from SD card

Some links:
U980 MIUI V5_4.4.3升级版.zip ---- not tested
hxxp://pan.baidu.com/s/1mgnyHHe

u980 miui_v5 04.5.2.zip ---- not tested
hxxp://pan.baidu.com/s/1qWz22ZE

u980 recovery chinese version
hxxp://www.4shared.com/file/w__6AjXjba/recovery.html

Mobile uncle for flashing above recovery
hxxps://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobileuncle.toolbox&hl=en

Not sure if the below works and whether it has similar CWM or TWRP you can use
[ROOT] Rashr - Flash Tool

Hi!!
Thanks for all the info but Im having some hard time finding the drivers to detect the phone on my PC.
The thing is that I read that to make a backup, I need first to use "MTK Droid Root & Tools" which would also allow me to root my phone. But that software doesn't detects my phone at all.
I connected my phone as CD drive, then it shows the drivers for it, installed but nothing changes. Device manager detects my phone.
Could you please help me a little on this? I would like to backup the whole ROM and phone before doing any risky changes and also want to backup the IMEI just in case.

Thanks in advance!
