Hello dear Lemon users!

I aquired this wonderful phablet a few weeks ago and started to tweak and experiment with it to get the most out of it.
I come from a ST25i (Xperia U) and am used to tweak and mod android phones.

But the only thread I've found was not organized or structured to aid and support those who know nothing about this phablet, mediatek or even android. Everything was spread around the massive number of posts, which always leads to users asking the same things over and over again.

So i decided to open this thread that i will keep updating with roms, recoveries, root methods, patches, tools, tutorials, etc...

How to flash official VibeUI ST/DEV roms through custom recovery:
- You will need to edit the updater-script file inside the .zip
- Use 7zip to open the zip and go to \META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script
and drag the file out (same as copy/paste)
- Use Notepad++ to open it and edit the updater-script.
- Delete all the lines until:
show_progress(0.750000, 0);
ui_print("Patching system image unconditionally...");

- Save and replace the file dragging it into the 7zip window you left open.
- Flash the rom, ignore errors after the "Patching system image unconditionally..." message.

The indian ROW rom has to be flashed via SP Flash Tool, so you can even format the whole phone before flashing it, no need to be on any rom prior to that.
