Sign Goophone i5 MT6575 ROM & 3G fix

Hello all!
So after much careful consideration I've decided to post this thread.

This thread is for all those people with the Goophone that isn't like the others. The ugly duckling - so to speak.
I purchased a goophone i5 from "efit" from dhgate.com after watching mayianjay's Youtube videos.
http://www.dhgate.com/goophone-i5-mt...a682b5965.html

Unfortunately the phone WASN'T the same as mayianjay's and NONE of his rom's work with this particular model, even further I couldn't find a CWM or TWRP recovery.img anywhere on the internet that was compatible with this phone, so I thought I'd help out my new friends of XDA and provide you guys with as much information as possible.

The phone model information is as follows (according to Android System Info.apk).
Android Version: 4.2.1
CPU: MT6575
CPU Hardware: MT6577
CPU HardwareP1: MT6575
Resolution: 480 x 854
DPI: 240
Brand: MZ
Device: E939
Model:iphone 5

Now, if this is what your phone looks like then I have good news for you - as you are almost certainly wondering where to find a recovery.img - See the attachment below. You will need flash tools which you can downloaded here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/priv...&pmid=10599596, alternatively you can try using MobileUncle. For this particular model you just have to have the phone off before commencing the flash with flash tools.

The recovery image provided comes with TWRP and if it STILL doesn't work for you then your only other option is building your own - which can be found reading my dear friend yuweng's post here. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1825722&page=1 - There are alot of tutorials on his post and you can learn much on your endeavor to flashing your phone

Currently I have been unsuccessful installing any roms as I get "assert failed:write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img")" when trying to install any ROM, which tells me that there are no supported ROMs for this device yet.
ROM's I've tried..

None from Colonelzap's blog work for this model
mayianjay'
XDA-Goophone i5 Lite ROM with the 3g fix also doesn't install.

But fear not. I'll make my own rom fixes if I have too! If you need help with your Goophone I'm happy to assist. Although I haven't gotten quiet there yet I do believe I'm a stone ahead of many others. Also - I have a question to anyone out here who has fixed the 3g connection on the phone, How'd you do it?!

Thanks guy for the hard work.
I'm having no problem with my 3G connection out of the box.
But the GPS is not functioning at all.

All you need to do is edit the updater-script and remove those assert lines. That won't overwrite boot.img (which contains the kernel) but it'll allow the ROM to finish its install and you can make a try to see if it works or not. Maybe there's another way to flash boot.img...
Current devices:
ZTE Grand X V970M ["Mimosa X"]
B&N Nook Simple Touch

Previous devices:
HTC Magic 32A (stolen) - FroyoDragon ROM developer
Motorola Defy+ MB525 (sold)

Ah I see, I did hear there was a few GPS bugs but they can be fixed apparently, see that Goophone i5 lite rom thread I think this phone has the wrong 3G cell bands for my area (Australia VIC), Even though it says it supports it on the site.. :/ Looks like I'm doomed with the 3G Bug, I've tried copying the APN settings from one phone to another and all. Anyway no problem!

I also have this phone. (Goophone i5 which is MZ E939 model) and my 3G is stuck as well. I did the same thing you did friend - copy the APN's from my samsung galaxy which works perfeclty with 3G and APN's setting. When APN's appeared in goophone menu I was able to listed my GSM providers and I could choose this one I have SIM card inside. Neverthless during the connection I recieve "Unable to connect, try again later"

I did some tests using different apps and all shows that 3G 900mhz is working and is ON. But no success in connecting. It is really annoying when you have your smartfon offline - almost useless

I have the same problem with custom ROMs too. No way to install them - using ROM manager or SP flash tool. - always some error appears.

Default I have the same phone too

I have the same one from efit, I replaced all apps in system/app by google apps by the following

GoogleCalendarSyncAdapter.apk
GoogleContactsSyncAdapter.apk
GooglePartnerSetup.apk
GoogleServicesFramework.apk
rootexplorer.apk
Vending.apk


DOWNLOAD IT HERE: http://www.mediafire.com/?2o838cef8feakno
PS. I rooted the phone before replacing that, using MTKdroidtool

Now I see my phone is slower and the playstore opens but gives me an error when It installs some app (error code 110) which fails eventually.

IF some one can please give me the stock apps in system/app for this phone, I would appreciate.
