Hello I just got the 45USD Lenovo S400 phone, wich of course is not a Lenovo, it is a modified S4 mini clone with MT6582 CPU, Adreno 305, 256MB RAM. Antutu says rooted: YES. Recovery is in chinese .
Is there any chance to flash some custom ROM compatible with this hardware?
On the phone there is Chinabox logo and also ZBW-PS1 number.
Thank you for suggestions.(if any)

Your best bet would be to look at the hardware inside the phone as other "White box" smartphones may share the same hardware and have custom ROMS ready for them.

Unfortunatley this is the issue as their are so many variants of white box brands and not enough developers for them all

Hope I could help and good luck in the search for ROMS

I can disassemble that, there are 9 screws and it looks like it won't be a problem, when I do this, I will post pics here.
What should I focus for? I mean, the CPU is known, but what else should I focus for?

No need to disassemble the phone, just download this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...wareinfo&hl=en
