Default Zopo ZP980+ (2GB/32GB)

I welcome everybody to the thread about the upgraded ZP980.

ZP980 vs ZP980+

The + version is supposed to be the exact same hardware as the ZP980, only with double the internal memory and RAM.

Why a separate thread for this variation?

Many people have pointed out that this model is basically the same as the ZP980 except for the size of the RAM and the internal storage (2GB vs 1GB and 32GB vs 16GB respectively).
The discussion is still going on in the ZP980 thread. Until it is 100% confirmed that everything works exactly the same for both phones, I am planning to keep this thread. Except if XDA decides differently of course.

In any event, this thread was not created to compete with the ZP980 thread. Personally I follow that one too and participate in the discussion. This thread here only exists as a point of reference for confirmed methods, tricks, ROMs and recoveries for the ZP980+.

Can I try ROMs and other stuff I find in the thread for the standard ZP980?

I would say yes, with some caution.
In case you try something that works or -even more important- something that does not work, please be kind and share with us in this thread. This way you are helping the community take the most out this excellent piece of hardware and avoid mistakes.

Phone specs:
5" screen
FHD Super Retina Display 1920*1080 pixels, 441PPI, OGS

Android 4.2 out of the box

IF YOUR PHONE DOES NOT HAVE THESE EXACT SPECS, PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT YOU READ IN THIS THREAD.

Confirmed Root Methods

1. Framaroot: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2130276 (first reported by Jan1959)
Note: it is possible that after upgrading to the latest version Framaroot does not work any more.

2. Eroot has worked for some users.



Credits go to the people who developed all the stuff that I mention in this post and to the people who pointed them out to me to include them here.

I repeat:
IF YOUR PHONE DOES NOT HAVE THESE EXACT SPECS, PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT YOU READ IN THIS THREAD.

My ZP980+ is waiting for me in Greece. I'll have it in a couple of weeks since I live in Switzerland.


But I couldn't wait to open this thread and prepare for what I need to do.
Has anybody already received it?
Did you manage to root it?

I managed rooting it via ERoot. I learnt that this is the only possibility to get rooted new zopo generation. Would be glad if there were another also working with linux. But as far as I know, there has not been any yet.

Dimitris, will you keep 1st post of this thread actual? It would be useful, if any custom ROM fully compatible with this model were linked in this opening thread as well as root tools and other useful tooling.

I am planning to keep the 1st post up to date IF nobody else offers to do it (I am sure XDA can change the poster of the OP if we ask them to, I have seen it done in other forums).
I only started this thread because I wanted to make a clear distinction and avoid bricking my device (selfish me) and also help others avoid bricking their devices.

I will add in the OP any useful piece of information that I see posted in the thread, starting with Framaroot (by Jan1959) and ERoot (by you) will follow if you explain a bit more (either describe what you did or provide a link as Jan1959 did ).

I seems to be logical that it works, because I do not know a root method which works on zp980h, but does not on c2 platinum. C2 platinum can be found in compatibility list. It is the 1st model of the higher zopo generation.

I dont know what you mean that it seems to be logical that is works.
I run the app and mine zopo 980 (2 GB ram en 32 GB rom delivered last week) is rooted.
I check it and work with a rooted device.

This referred to Dimitris' allusion, that zp980h is not part of the compatibility list. I mean that older root methods (i. e. motorola apk exploit and so on) do not work any more with newer zopo devices. 1st of these devices is c2 platinum. Up to now, I have known only eRoot which is able to root it and zp980h. If framaroot works with this, it should also work with zp980h.
