* I DON'T RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR WATCH, YOUR DAILY LIFE, OR ANYTHING AFFECTED BY METHOD ON THIS THREAD

Okay, I want to tell you step by step installing Kitkat on our device
This method is tested on Iconbit Callisto 100 (rik81), Z15 clone (By Me) and Podor PW306 (Blufires)

1. using ZGPAX S8 Firmware, credit to rik81

Callisto 100 Flash Android 4.4 from Zgpax S8 Rom
Instructions - Follow these steps:
download here
1. Extract the folder "zgpax s8 new firmware.rar"
2. Delete the following files:
- lk.bin
- MT6572_Android_scatter.txt
- preloader_s8.bin
3. replace these files with those of your stock rom
4. flash with SP Flash Tool - mode Firmware Upgrade


2. Using UNOVA IRONMAN Firmware, By Me
Steps: download the firmware from this ( credit to kuronosan )
extract it, then rename factory_NONmodified_recovery.img to recovery.img
then use scatter in the attachment, do firmware upgrade
after finished, enter recovery then do factory reset

EDIT : this rom doesn't have full functionality of TWRP, you can't mount external sdcard


GOOD THINGS :
-FULLY WORKED BT Tethering
-Full AGPS and BLE Support
KNOWN ISSUES : SENSORS DIDN'T WORK in both firmwares, most likely never can be fixed. this based on kernel and both kernel and libs with working sensor in x201 are in JellyBean, can't be used in KitKat by changing files, must be on source

Google Apps (Play Store, etc) here, SuperSU (Root Access) here (put these on internal sdcard for flashing with TWRP)

Fix for Home button change into volume up in ZGPAX S8 firmware(Attachment, flash with TWRP)
For Custom Recovery (TWRP) you may use this (Credit to kuronosan )

FOR NOW WAITING ANY MT6572 smartwatch w/ SIM support using LOLLYPOP and figure method to cross-flashing it

Sensors don't work? Looks like I'll be fixing that too.

What unit did you test this on?

rik81 already answer it, btw i think it's better to optimize the recovery first, the only problem is mounting sdcard
well this is huge leap for Truesmart development

EDIT : Since UNOVA IRONMAN firmware can't get TWRP fully working and rather outdated, I using ZGPAX S8 for now

I already have it working. Should have realized I needed to use upgrade instead of download.

I found problems with the Chainfire Root . Show folders sdcard0 sdcard1 empty and folder permissions xbin not appropriate that I could not change.

I had to repeat the Root with the tool attachment

now everything runs fine

For Custom Recovery (TWRP) you may use this (Credit to kuronosan ) it can't mount external sdcard but you can root, flash anything and factory reset pretty useful

Note that the UNOVA IRONMAN ROM your are using has issues in my UNOVA IRONMAN (GPS not working and mobile with problems, I have not tested all the other things). This may explain why you are having issues with the sensors. We need to try with a newer ROM. As I said in another post, my IRONMAN was shipped with a ROM compiled in November 2014, but I do not have it anymore.

Anyone with a new IronMan that can upload the ROM?

So I don't have an lk.bin or preloader_s8.bin from my MTKDroidTools backups. I have "preloader_and_dsp" though.

Am I missing something simple here? It's been a while since I've played with this. I do have an lk.bin in "!Files_to_FlashTool" folder from an old backup.

Nevermind. Got past that now. I hadn't run the second process to create them with MTKDroidTools

I'm was getting an error about encryption being interrupted before I did a factory reset via the stock recovery. I presume that's somewhat expected?

Also I don't follow why we're doing two separate flashes when the second one most overwrites everything the first one did. I haven't compared the two scatters exactly but I take it there's only a few things from the first flash that are actually required?

And yes it works for my TS which I received about March 2014 if that helps you at all kuronosan.

They're two different ROMs.

Both are working on my Omate TS pre May.

For me, ZGPAX S8 looks better and is rooted, google play store is preinstalled.
But the home button is for loudness.
I have installed Swipe Home Button.

@rik81
Thank you very much.
