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 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"

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
