Hi iw4nk,

you need to replace/install another "recovery" than the original one on you phone first
with SP Flash Tool (PC application).

With this recovery it is possible to create Nandroid Backup (do it first before flashing other ROM)
Copy a ROM in the root of sdcard, in recovery mode chose your new ROM in zip-format you want to flash,
or reflash Backup you have make (sdcard/nandroid folder)
You dont need PC anymore.
.
This recovery allow to disable the signature verification.

Ready to do this?

At your own risk!

Be sure you have MT6573 CPU inside your Star x18i!

Read Martinīs Blog, you need MT65x3 USB VCOM drivers and SP Flash Tool v2.1134.00 from there.
http://bm-smartphone-reviews.blogspo...-tutorial.html

Download this ScatterFile and this Recovery

unzip Recovery.zip and rename "592zn.com_recovery_Star_X18i_MT6573.img" to recovery.img and flash it with SP Flash Tool.

To enter Recovery Mode press Vol up and Power simultanely

Regards.

Changelog:

- Add boot function in the second 3g sim. With this function the 2 slots support 3g sim. You can completely change mount 2 sim 3g and connect with a simple click, no need to remove your sim change. This function is located in Settings -> Wireless and networking -> Mobile networks -> 3g Services -> 3g:
+ The default is sim slot 1 (the outermost slot), you can switch between two arbitrary sim slot.
+ If you select Off, 2 sim will only GSM status. This for anyone not using 3G, or when new users are turned off to help take the pin.
- Update the latest app, update ad blocking hosts.
- Fix the catalytic response, more app also dropped in the previous version (which can be related to an app that can not be DC and the system).
- Do not have much time so the new version is just the frame, not the optimal lot, not beauty. Everything that you will be home next patch or ROM. Make sure if fully optimized, 2.3.4 and 2.3.6 stronger 5 more ^ ^!
Note:
- Do you leave out the background to help take the pin. Rom so when finished will have black T lockscreen. You only need to change the lockscreen wallpaper inside bt will return.
- All other guidelines as the previous version.
- If there is anything, report immediately to his home.
- Fix widget sense: At the Root explorer -> system -> app, find the file and delete it fr.clockwidget.lpsense.odex reboot.

Have you see on this page, the viet. people brings another recovery via rooted phnone
and mobileuncletool chosing "flash Recovery.zip?

where the recovery must be stored on sdcard to do this job?
Can you read it to on first page, please?

Hi all,

Thank you for your shares.
Recently I updated my phone with ROM provided by momofab (thank you again for this good tutorial )
After install, I didn't see big changes ... Even my apps and account data was still in place. I have thinked after installation of new ROM, the phone would become "clean".

Ok, now I would like to test the new ROM provided by iw4nk but I have one important question before
Is this ROM includes french langage ?

Momofab, as soon as you will have installed this ROM, please give feedback

regards

Hi momotchobiloute,

clean means, China App clean, not more.
Before You flash a new ROM perform a Wipe first, then itīs "virgin"

My feedback? I wait for yours.
Have you do what I talled you?

With the Recovery I gave you, you are able to swap quickly between custom ROMs. Is anything wrong, restore your Backup.

@iw4nk,

flash recovery with MUT, it works!
But I took v1.3. The Recovery is the same I gave you.
