when ROOT will be available I will buy this phone probably ... (this is mandatory requirement with all my smartfones , i cant imagine have smartfone without ROOT)

aaa one more question i forgot
how sim cards and exernal memory is applyiable ? SIM + SIM + MemoryCard ,
or hybrid SIM + SIM / SIM + MemoryCard

Charging and messages with selectable color. I agree about root however the phone was just too interesting to wait for root. I mostly need it to delete the gapps and google services as i don't use them so i can live with it for now. It has 2 sim cards and a micro SD card each in their own connector under the metal plate on the back so all 3 at once are possible.

Thank you so much! This works great!

Here is a clickable download link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...MDUXye4DD9kEAC

For anyone following these are the steps i did (assuming you unlocked bootloader already):
1. Copy both zips to external sd as internal storage wont work at first
2. adb reboot bootloader
3. fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
4. unplug usb and hold power button until screen turns off
5. let go of power button, count to 2, press and hold power button and volume up together until screen turns back on
6. let go of power button when screen turns on but keep holding volume up until you see TWRP screen
7. as above post said, cancel password and swipe to enter main menu and then one square above the bottom right to enter the language menu
8. flash both zips from external sd card
9. format data (not wipe but format to get rid of encryption) - i rebooted after flashing the zips and had to go back to recovery again to format the data !THIS DOES A FACTORY RESET!
10. reboot to system this will cause it to be set up as new
11. reboot to recovery again, this time there should be no password and in install you should be able to see internal storage of the phone
12. flash magisk / anything else you want

Also do you mind me asking... How did you manage to make this recovery? As far as i understand the stock boot.img is needed to port twrp or have things changed now?

Thank you for your feedback and more detailed instructions. I was only a tester, the work was done by nemo-nemo from 4pda. But how i can understand you need to use your stock firmware from ulefone mega storage. I got a problem when was working with twrp stuff. Tee key and google key red text in upper right corner. I have restored the IMEI's but google key still is not ok. I checked solutions for other ulefone phones but they dont work. Maybe android 9 is a reason. If anyone know something about it pls reply. Sorry for my english

Aha. I did not know about any such ulefone mega storage existing although i have seen this kind of thing before when working with a no-name chinese tablet. I thought that the firmware simply wasn't released yet as there was no download link on ulefone page. Sadly i do not know anything about tee key or google key, it just worked for me. Hopefully someone else can help you with that.

Thank you, i'm sure this will be very useful. By the way.... I tried remounting system as rw and it doesn't allow me to do that. I read online that this might be due to a "secure kernel" but can't get much more info. Do you know how one could solve this and modify the files in system partition? Maybe there is some flashable .zip patch to enable it?

EDIT: It works in TWRP just not in android. I suspect this is due to apps trying to remount /system but the phone actually has files in /system/system/ (2 folders one in another).
EDIT2: Don't try to restore a twrp backup if you have any important data, for me it caused the phone to go black screen and reboot as soon as it goes past the first few seconds of the Orange State logo to try and load the system.

It works perfect for me but Im using treble Android 10 (AOSP by phh) due to red text on my stock firmware.

I didn't try to restore data and user partitions but other works good for me.
