Special Note:
There's been way too many revisions of this device (as of right now: about half a dozen )
I.e: Different Camera sensors, P.sensor, fingerprint, touchscreen.
As so, instead of reporting "this doesn't work" , try to give as much feedback as you can (and logs) to the team.
We have already added support for some variants, besides the initial "rev1".

Q: When I try to install the ROM it says "Error 7 symlink failed", what gives?

Q: Data Connection does not work, why?
A: The ROM, already includes latest APNs, if you still have no active data connection, check your APN settings

Q: How is battery life with Nougat on the Jiayu?
A: It should be comparable to Marshmallow.
Update: We've already fixed several memory leaks and draining issues

Q: Does this build support Vulcan?
A: No. Vulcan does not provide support for MediaTek (yet?)

Q: Does doze work in this build?
A: Yes. You do not have to enable anything; it is active by default.

I am interested in installing this rom, the problem is that for some reason in my phone does not work any recovery other than the TWRP put in needrom for 4pda. Since that modification of TWRP can not be installed rom, could you help me find a solution to flash Johny recovery?

Use Pack-Flashtool-v5.1620.00.000 from needrom, install drivers, install TWRP from Jonny (copy MT6753_Android_scatter.txt in folder with recovery and change name TWRP-3.0.2-0-Metal.img to recovery.img and flashing).

I already did all that, and the result is the same. The only TWRP that works with those steps is modified by "hanuma50" (that is in needrom) that does not work to install this rom, the other TWRP do not work. I've also tried flashering them from the TWRP of "hanuma50" or from Flashify, the result is the same.

Regards, I inform you that I have been doing a series of tests on my mobile, to try to flash some existing roms. For now the following happens: The official firmware from the 20160912 and lower version do not work (I still have to try the 20161019 version), the 20161024 and 20161117 versions work correctly.

Another error, for now the one that has me more restless is the following: The only functional recovery is the TWRP of the user hanuma50 that has incompatibility with certain roms, the other versions of TWRP available do not work, when trying to install it using SPFT , Flashify or from the same TWRP are installed correctly, but at the time of running it simply restarts the mobile and starts the system normally.

I'm thinking because it is because there is surely a new batch of mobile with changes to the hardware, but I do not know, Do you know anything about it?

Another thing, if the darksense kernel flashed the mobile stops working (it enters an infinite loop with the Ulefone logo), it was tested in stock rom and in the Eragon rom.

I get an incoming or outgoing call and the phone reboots. And at any moment without cause - reboots. With a minimum brightness of the smartphone - screen flashes intermittently.
