Hello guys. Recently I bought this Letv S1 Pro. Its a total beast with awesome looks. As its a Chinese device the playstore didn't come as built in. After some research in various chinese sites I have manged to install TWRP, Gapps and even root my device.
The Tutorial is described here.

But its in chinese. So here I am going to share it for you.

Guide to install TWRP , Root and Gapps
1. At first go to developer option in your phone and tick "USB Debugging"
2. Then connect to your phone and install all the drivers which should be automatically installed. Check device manager whether your pc detected your phones adb or not. If not then you have to do some more works. At first download latest google usb drivers from here and extract.

Now from device manager in your pc right click on the unrecognized Adb interface and select update driver. Then locate the usb driver that you just downloaded and choose list of devices. Choose Android phone from the list of devices and install the drivers and reboot your pc. This will install the adb drivers.
3. Then download X800 TWRP Recovery 2.8.7.0, SuperSU 2.52, and Letv google-new from the follwing liks

4. Copy SuperSu and Letv google-new to your phone
5. Extract X800 TWRP Recovery 2.8.7.0 in you pc and then connect your phone to pc with USB debugging on
6. Launch the recovery batch file and press enter and follow the instruction. You may have to press enter again and again 2-3 times to complete the recovery flashing.
7. If all things goes well your phone should reboot to TWRP recovery.
8. Flash SuperSU and Letv google new via TWRP. You should flash any of these when you first boot in to TWRP otherwise you may end getting TWRP replaced by stock recovery. It's weird but this is how it works

Download debloated roms from here and enjoy

Dear, I bought it through my friend in china. The built quality is top notch. The phone feels a little heavy but the looks is killer. The camera is great. The images are sharp and have vivid colors. My only complain will be it's battery. You will only get about a day out of it. Hope it will be fixed with updates. Here are some screenshots.

Guide to install TWRP , Root and Gapps
1. At first go to developer option in your phone and tick "USB Debugging"
2. Then connect to your phone and install all the drivers which should be automatically installed. Oh, one thing you pc should have the adb drivers installed. If you have already done some flashing activities with your pc then it should be already installed there so don't worry about that.
3. Then go to this link and download Update SuperSU 2.46, Letv Le1 TWRP recovery and Letv google-new
http://pan.baidu.com/s/1c0rUOuO#path=%252FLETV
4. Copy SuperSu and Letv google-new to your phone
5. Extract Letv Le1 TWRP recovery in you pc and then connect your phone to pc with USB debugging on
6. Launch the chinese recovery batch file and press enter. You may have to press enter again and again 2-3 times to complete the recovery flashing.
7. If all things goes well your phone should reboot to TWRP recovery. At first you will see a chinese TWRP welcome screen but don't worry. Just tap the big button at the middle.
8. Then in the second screen tap the first button which is basically the install button and flash SuperSU by swiping. After that go back and return to the main menu. Tap the last button which is basically the reboot button and in second screen tap the first button which basically reboot to system and voila you will have SuperSu installed.
9. Now go to your pc and download a TWRP theme from here
https://s.basketbuild.com/devs/z31s1...TWRP%20287X_v1
10. Make a folder named "theme" and copy the downloaded theme from the upper link inside this folder and rename it to "ui"
11. Copy this theme folder in to the TWRP folder of your phone
12. Then again power off your phone and and go to recover by volume up + power button and voila you will have English TWRP.
13. Now again flash the Letv google-new and reboot and you will have playstore installed.

Please press thanks if you like it.

Great review!
I also used your tutorial video to sideload Google services after factory resetting my x600. It came from oppomart with the Play Store already installed and Google launcher automatically running. But I've had a lot of issues with the phone so I did a reset and your tutorial was very helpful. Thank you so much! Very professional!

Hi!

Was someone able to finish the tutorial ?
adb doesn't detect my device, the bat file can't do anything

I had already adb and fastboot configured in my PATH(available via the cmd) and they are updated.
USB Debugging was activated and I tried the 3 connections methods
- Media device (MTP)
- Camera(PTP)
- Charge only

Apparrently it is a problem related to the USB Driver:
ADB Interface - can't find the driver

hassib85, do you know if there's a usb driver provided by Letv ?

I don't know. I didn't install any drivers. My pc automatically detected my phone. One thing you need to allow adb from your pc in your phone. When you try the batch file a dialogue box should pop out i your phone that your pc trying to connect via adb, you need to allow that in you phone. If this also don't work try this, go to recovery in your phone while phone connected to pc. This also install some drivers. Just wait for the drivers to be installed and again restart your pc.

This tutorial worked perfectly. I'd add that you must remember to reboot your PC after installing all drivers and ADB drivers. I was held up for hours until I was like, "DUH!!". Then I side loaded TWRP in Chinese and used your guide and link to get the English theme. Voila!!
