Hi friends, this is my first post so i hope it helps

I have a XPlay r800at with locked bootloader, and as many of you i wanted to flash a custom ROM

The first problem, i tried to find a free way to unlocking its bootloader, guess what. there is not a free way.(if you can/already paid for it, this post is not for you)

2nd) i found cooked rom's that can be flashed even with a locked bootloader BUT it seem to work just fine with R800i, R800a....

3rd) But, can i flash a r800a or r800i rom and then flash a cooked rom...
The first thing can be done BUT the second no, why? because my phone is a r800at so this stock roms wont work at 100%

4) When i flashed those roms (i tried about 12 stock rom's ) something end up not working, like Wifi or Camera...so i tried to solve this "little" things in order to finally customize my r800at BUT....there is no solution for it since it is a Locked Bootloader meaning NO kernel Flashing meaning NO stock/modified wifi modules....

5) 6) 7) more blablabla (customized systeui.apk, flashing, signing, decompling,downloading testing...... time and frustration)

8) finally i found a solution and here it is.

So if you want to flash a custom rom like "gin2KitKat"(thats the one i originally wanted to flash) here's a way that worked for my r800at
  • You will need a rom called "R800i_4.0.1.A.0.283_(1247-6212).ftf"
    Flashtool

Once you flash it with flash tools, you can follow the custom rom's instruction for "Locked Bootloader"....(root,CWM, wipe....)

i hope this help you and save you some time(despite my long story about how i get this rom working at 100% )

btw, "gin2kitkat" is a vokal1992's project

It's called s1 tool here's a link to the guide : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1730874

Worked great for my r800at. You don't have to attach the jumper to the usb I plugged in my cable according to the guide and just held a wire to the points indicated worked perfect.

I cant do it because my phone says

"Rooting Status:
Bootloader unlock Status: NO"

and that tuto asks it to be on "YES" else, "do not attempt to unlock the bootloader"

Ya that's not really a big problem but you won't be able to flash .img you will have to flash special .ftf made by LOOPEY on this forum there are only a handful of Roms and kernels such as lupus and doomkernel. You can unlock when unlock says no but you will ONLY be able to flash the Tom's made in. Ftf as you will not be able to enter fastboot. I'll see if I can find the Rom thread in case you still want to do it.
