It nagged me for about a week and now it's gone, they must have pulled it.

Among those I came across one named prog_emmc_ddr_debug_8953_mmx.mbn and it seems to actually boot but once booted it wont list any partitions or work like we want it to probably because its not necessarily for this particular device. Long story short, it seems to partially work and the board listing for msm8953 isn't entirely incorrect apparently. I still have like 12 or so other variants of the 8953 firehose to test but I thought this was someone interesting and hoped maybe someone else with more knowledge on firehose files had some insight as to why it partially works. Information on this device is sparse to say the least but hopefully this is something we can work with. Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated! I'm linking the firehose in question so that someone else can help figure this out. Thanks!
Edit: I dont have enough posts on the forum to link yet so PM for a google drive link for prog_emmc_ddr_debug_8953_mmx.mbn.
Send me a pm and I'll look into it.

I would like to have root on the device, sure but i'd love to get a Recovery.img installed onto the device first and foremost. Unless there is a thread on XDA that i've missed due to wording the thread wrong or using a different information on the device. And just a small bit of reading their fine print. The CoolPad is owned by a company named: Yulong
So, since they really don't have much in software or even a footprint in the mobile phone game to be recognized as a brand to be listed on any site that i know of even by their mother company. I tried to look for a basic recovery that was made for Android P devices in general but i guess that would be the ideal method for the request.
It's stock recovery it's just a strange thing with Android pie. My Nexus 6P would also do it sometimes, and a couple Samsung phones I've had e.g note 8, or j7 also do this. Recovery is there though.
Coolpad has been around awhile, I had the Coolpad Quattro back in the day when that was a giant screen phone. They're a small company and they're terrible at QC because this ROM in riddled with bugs, none that are useful just frustrating.

Unfortunately even though we're on a couple month old sec patch were there's only 2 notable exploits, neither of which were vulnerable to.
Tip: if you set the minimum width in developer settings to 600 you get the phablet UI in some apps. And this includes the desktop UI for chrome. Although it does make things small so if you don't have great eyes this may not be viable, and the gboard layout takes some getting used to.
