As of now the best ROM available for our device is the Xperia V2.It's bug free,fast,and has almost no Chance's of getting a bootloop on flashing.For the Samsung rom,their are Note3 & 4 roms but they all have their faults such as camera bug and dual Sim and other stuff.So go ahead with flashing the xperia ROM or wait some days till @rjt.rockx uploads the C4K rom. Cheers!

Xperia ROM v2. Many Samsung ROMs are out there, check it out at http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...um-s5-t2906329

@cybercrawler, Sorry, but I cannot guarantee that it is bugless unless I get it to boot properly, you know, with the new Kernel compilation and all, ....

Sorry guys, but I'm not getting it to work. I'm gonna have to learn the whole of Linux before I go on with this. I'm having a hard time here trying to do it with Windows. I had Ubuntu 14, but after my 1 TB Hard Drive failed, I lost all of my work, except the ROM I had uploaded online and a few ROMs in my SD Card.

Status update :
Xperia ROM v3 got wiped out. Sorry, again. I can't continue with it.
MIUI v6 got done by Ajinkya Mishra, but it is still on Jelly Bean 4.3, so a Kitkat version is pending. The one released by him has many bugs, though.
Android L ROM will be done after CarbonForKarbonn, since it needs a new kernel.
Stock ROM got done by Ajinkya Mishra, so I'm not doing that.

By the way, I'm not going to do themed ROMs. What is the use of another user interface if you have no changes made in the core? What good is the Android L ROM (except for a glimpse of Material design) if you don't get Android RunTime instead of Dalvik? What good is a Kitkat themed ROM if you cannot install Android 4.4+ Apps onto it?

I'm not against Ajinkya Mishra of karbonnroms.blogspot.in, but according to me, a new ROM must have changes not just in the User Interface, but also in the core updates. For all I know, you could just use a Cyanogen 10.2.1 ROM for themes and all that. I'm looking for base updates. Just changing the Android version from 4.2.2 to 4.4.4 or 5.1 in build.prop makes no sense to me.

You know, all of this would have been easier if Mediatek had released the source code of their MT6582 processor, or if Karbonn was creating updates for their devices. THEY AREN'T.
@superdragonpt did build a few Kitkat kernels for Mediatek MT6582 devices, but, apparently he is busy, and does not want to be bothered by us, so don't disturb him.
@Entropy512 (of the OmniROM team) explained it here :
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2483238&page=7

See post 67, 68, 69 and 70.

I had ported the Xperia ROM v3 successfully, and it even had the new Xperia Nav Bar. But, as I was uploading it, my hard drive broke down. It was in my SD Card, but that build had just a few minor changes over Xperia ROM v2 that could be done with the Xposed Framework and GravityBox. So, I thought it would be better just to discontinue it.

If you guys can find anyone who can help in building a Kitkat kernel for this device, or even learn it yourself and create a working boot.img from that, then Android Version updates for this device can continue. Else, we are stranded with Jelly Bean 4.2.2.

Hope I helped till now !

Ps. : Guys, get someone to build or help me build a new Kitkat boot.img for our device, please. You'll be grateful to yourselves.

Hi

My mt6582 device ( wiko darkmoon) was in The same situation. They droped The KK update
. So we where stucked with a new device with just JB 4.2

Actualy very soon, this device will get Unofficial KK
( made by me), and yes working with MTK isnt easy, specialy when you dont have any source to work with... ( or just The kernel)...

If you want to build an compatible KK kernel, required as The first step to make an KK ROM, isnt easy. You need to have an deep knowledge of The MTK platform and know your device HW.

I've been working on The KK build for over 9 months now...
So...
I would love to help you, since i just love opensourced MTK devices... But for me to work, i really need The device in question...

Regards

Yaay ! @superdragonpt (finally) can help for our device's updates !!!
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay !

It is Karbonn Titanium S5 Plus, a clone of Coolpad 7295C, having Android 4.2.2 Jelly bean, 4 GB Internal storage, 1 GB RAM, Mediatek MT6582 chipset, An Oncell IPS Screen, external SD Card support of up to 32 GB, DUAL-SIM, Kernel version 3.4.5, having an aspiring dev like me asking great devs like you to make Kitkat kernels for his device.

Same specs as the Android One (Indian) devices, but with a lower Android version, a lower Kernel version and only a few ROMs. Waiting for new updates, occasionally tried some, etc. etc. etc.

I can go on all day or even all year, if you ask me.

I was trying out this Carbon ROM that I was porting over here, so could you just look into it? And also, could you just give some info on how to port newer Lollipop ROMs to this device ? Thanks again.

@superdragonpt has released a KK ROM for his device.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...t3057362/page2
He also have mentioned the clones of his device.Is it possible that his ROM might work for our device?
The specs are almost same except the resolution..Kernal version is same(3.4.5).So can we get KK atlast?

Precisely the problem I have been working on since I first created this thread : Porting ROMs having different Android versions to different devices having the same SoC. It isn't that easy. I have been going head over tail everyday, trying to fix it. Multi-device compatibility isn't that easy.
Summary : I wish it were, BUT IT ISN'T THAT EASY !

Of course I know its not easy.What I was trying to say was that can we get help from @superdragonpt to make KK for our device?.Heck I am fed up with MTK,next time I rather buy another handset without MTK

Depends on @superdragonpt 's decision on whether he will help us or not.

By the way, @superdragonpt , I forked a similar device's kernel source, see whether it'll work at https://github.com/rjt-rockx/Karbonn..._kernel_source ...
