Arrow June 2020 Updates: Rom ported! Now we need a recovery!
June 2020 Updates: Rom ported! Now we need a recovery!

Guys, I've really faced a lot of problems when trying to port this rom:
1) I had to wait 5 months to receive a working battery from China, thank you Corona Virus...
2) university... XD
3) porting guides on the web suck, I had to contact many people and study many articles and video guides... until I had to make my own porting guide...
4) some tools to extract boot.img files extract .img files, but with a wrong structure!! (and I discovered this just recently!)
5) I had to change the port rom, now I'm not using a ViperOS rom, but a RidonOS rom from a Micromax device much more similar to Takee 1 (more than 90%of the hardware is identical)
6) I want to thank you @io2345 for helping me to test over 10 roms!! We had to exchange almost 100 mails to bring you a new and updated Rom!!

Anyway after all this FREE effort I think that I finally got a working Rom !! (correctly ported!!)
But we dhave another problem now...
We discovered that the custom recovery we use on Takee 1 (twrp 2.8.0.0. developed by @luckasfb ) is too old to support Android 7! We need a new custom recovery, probably a twrp 3.0 or above.

I've already researched new material and guides on the web. I found a guide that seems to clearly explain how to port a custom recovery to any device.
The process is simple, it consist in the extraction of the recovery from an Android kitchen in Linux, the rest is about replacing files.

Is this the end, or not?
Anyway the process is long and boring...
I'm quite busy with exams, life a few other projects...
I don't know if continuing this project is convenient for me at this point...
If someone wants to help me and @io2345 please leave a message hereunder, I'll leave you links and infos about the recovery porting.

Cheers!

A reward of 20 euro is awaiting your delivery of a fully working Android 7 ROM + custom recovery.
I expect @io2345 to reward you as well:

Regarding TWRP-3.1 custom recoveries for EStar Takee 1, I did some porting attemps from 5-19 November 2017.

After many attempts finally got TWRP 3.1.1.0 working on the Takee - find it attached (had to split it, as size exeeds 8MB, rename parts to .001 and .002). Probably not yet perfect, but installation attempt of Mikel's ROM succeded. ROM is working and shows Android 7.1.2 (Ridon ROM)
Congratulations to Mikel. He really made it !

I'm fu**ing happy!!
After 2 years of work we finally made it!!
Porting Android 7 to an Android 4 device is really a suicide! But, hey... Mission Accomplished!!
Thank you for helping me testing everything @io2345

@YuriRM ... about your last message... XD

Congratulations to all members of the development team of Android 7.1.2 (Ridon ROM) and TWRP 3.1.1.0 recovery for EStar Takee 1.

This is a landmark in the history of this remarkable Holographic 3D smartphone!

Recruitment of testers for this Alpha version is of paramount importance.

@giotogo, @snapss, @Talwarmirza are you ready to take action and give feedback to our development team, please?

Bugs need to be fixed before announcement at main threads of EStar Takee 1 at XDA and 4PDA.

One must ensure that this ROM and recovery do not descend into oblivion, for lack of awareness by owners of this device.

In order to sustain the valiant effort of @Mik-el, a strategy for reaching all owners of EStar Takee 1 is needed.

My suggestion is to update regularly the TWRP recovery and include it in the Official TWRP App, available at the Google Play Store.

1- Let's bring our version to the latest TWRP 3.4.0-0 (24th June 2020)
2- Let's comply with requirements for inclusion in the official distribution of TWRP
3- TWRP Maintainer should be @Mik-el, at this moment in time
4- A custom recovery is used for installing custom software on your device. This custom software can include smaller modifications like rooting your device or even replacing the firmware of the device with a completely custom "ROM"

TeamWin - TWRP
https://twrp.me/

Any more suggestions are welcome.

NOTE - I will give a reward of 20 euro to @Mik-el, after receiving bug reports by alpha testers.

@YuriRM many thanks for your reward!
I sent the custom ROM to @io2345 , he's already helping me finding bugs and troubleshooting everything.
The ROM is not an Alpha, it's already a Beta!!
Maybe even better: it's already good for daily use!

According to io2345 the rom is fanstastic! It's fast, stable and the battery life is very good.
The only 2 bugs found are:
1) Bluetooth bugged (but I'm going to fix it)
2) Frontal camera and main camera work! They require a warm reboot to be "unlocked" but I think I just got an idea to solve this bug too.

Obliviously io2345's reviews are very accurate (as you know), he'll post more when I'll release the rom.

As you can see my Rom is just born and at this stage is already suitable for daily use! Did you remember when you suggested me to port Android 6 first? I'm glad I went to straight to the next release... now we have Android 7.1.2 and it works better than Vladjocker's ROM!

I won't post the Rom download these days: I want to keep fixing some things and remove any dependency that remind to other Chinese devices. I asked our friend io2345 to keep helping me testing betas without sharing them.
But don't worry, when the first good release is ready to the internet I'll post everything here and the whole takee 1 community will be informed with a tag or a quote on xda. (you'll get a notification from my telegram channel too).

Regards,
Mik-el
