I kept getting a constant system force close at the startup procedure sent in to bootloop. Be very careful when trying the non english roms! I do not want to hear anybody blaming me for a bricked phone.

I am about to try LEWA OS. I have always wanted to give this a shot but it was never available on any of my devices. I will report back

*EDIT* Look below for details

*EDIT* I have changed my mind. I have taken a long time to setup my phone to be the way it is now and don't want to risk having to flash stock firmware again in order to fix a soft bricked phone, not that it usually worries me, it's just annoying trying to get everything perfect again (I don't rely on nandroid backups as even they aren't perfect_
you are wrong, backup through twrp 2.6.3.3 works perfectly! Before Recover to do
wipe - advanced wipe
-Wipe dalvik cache
-System
-Cache
-Custom Storage
-Date
restore you buckup -
reboot -

i restore stock b907 / pac man rom / my port fly ui (cm 10.1 joe.stone)

I have been doing this for many years. I have goten to points of soft bricking where recovery is impossible to get in to and where I needed to enter download/bootloader modes. The only way to restore a nandroid is if I have backed it up to my computer beforehand, flashed a firmware in download/bootloader mode then re-root/unlock and flash a recovery again, transfer the nandroid to my device and hope the data has not been corrupted during the process between phone and computer. I have actually needed to do this several times and more than once the nandroid was not restorable.

I ended up flashing LEWA OS. Very fast and everything seems to be working fine for me. GPS is working better for me now than on stock, camera and HDR mode are great, speed is good. Wifi and Data is working flawlessly. Beautiful lockscreen and UI. All of the theming options seem to be working as well (for those familiar with MIUI etc.) The rom has a lot of visual tweaking and you can even kill the current running app by long pressing the back button *note* it does work, you just need to hold it for longer. You can also swipe in between the notifications and the switches tabs anywhere on the screen

The first time I flashed this it would not pass the boot animation. I ended up flashing B907 again and then running the bootloader unlock again (regardless of if I needed to or not) and then flashed the rom again. Step 1. Copy the LEWA rom zip and Gapps to your phone, then reboot in to recovery. 2. In TWRP; do an advanced wipe "cache, dalv, system, data" and then go to install and find the rom and install it. 3. reboot and make sure the rom loads all the way (do not bother setting up google account yet), once this happens reboot in to recovery again by holding power button and selecting reboot>recovery (inside of the rom this option is available), once you are there please install Gapps with TWRP, then reboot and enjoy.

The first time I flashed this it would not pass the boot animation. I ended up flashing B907 again and then running the bootloader unlock again (regardless of if I needed to or not) and then flashed LEWA rom by extracted the files to a new folder and then running the Flash_All.bat from inside the folder. After the files have finished all I did was reboot and it worked this time.
Hi, You can put some screenshots of the ROM??
thanks.
