HOW TO FLASH

well described by the developer himself on the main thread , post #3

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...51&postcount=3

-=-=-=-
down below is the user`s experience as following
-=-=-=-

_*HOW TO FLASH MONX's ROM (4.4.2) v5.0.3 BASE 681*_

*FROM 4.2.2 BASE 534 for model C6903*

*_Files needed to update to 4.4.2_*

Grab flashtool from here

http://www.flashtool.net/download.php

Grab the root tool VROOT from here

http://www.mgyun.com/vroot

Grab recovery from here

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2261606

Grab Monx's 681 rom from here

https://mega.co.nz/#!oI4F3a6I!fvDhL3...2ScCbgqMks6SUk

And finally the FTF file from the mega collection here (you can try stripped FTF files but some people have had problems and I have personally tested this method and it's proven to have worked)

The one I used was this one

https://mega.co.nz/#!XgBmHJwT!LWc9mq...k1llNdtXJS33M4

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2469191

*_Installation_*

1. First things first, back up your internal memory.

2. Next if you haven't already install flashtool on your computer.

3. Copy the FTF files into the firmwares folder

4. Power off your phone and run flash tool

5. Connect your phone whilst holding volume down to enter flashmode, flashtool will notify you that you're connected in flashmode.

6. Click the lightening bolt in flashtool then click flashmode, then ok

7. Find the 534 FTF in the list and click flash (this will wipe your internal memory so make sure you did that back up)

8. Once it finishes, detach the cable and power on the device

*Note! at this point your IMEI might be missing, don't worry about that for now just continue*

9. Switch on USB debugging and unknown sources on your device

10. Run the Vroot tool that you downloaded earlier and root your device, it's all in chinese but it's straight forward enough.

11. Once you're rooted, you'll need to install your recovery so go ahead and run the bat file installer, your device will show a request, just click authorize and reboot when in recovery.

*_If everything has gone well then you'll have a recovery and you'll be rooted._*

12. Now copy the 681 Rom from Monx's thread to your internal memory and reboot to recovery.

13. Perform a full wipe in recovery Data / Dalvic and Cache

14. Install the rom with a full wipe (not 100% needed but I like to be sure) 2nd option in aroma

15. Go back to recovery once it's finished and power off your device then re enter flash mode (hold vol down while reconnecting it to your computer.

16. Re-open flash tool and flash your desired 681 FTF file via flashtool, I went for the global FTF which can be found here although other people have confirmed that others will work.

https://mega.co.nz/#!XgBmHJwT!LWc9mq...k1llNdtXJS33M4

17. To flash this deselect all wipe options and exclude only TA and system *_IMPORTANT_*

18. Begin flashing the FTF file.

Once that's completed you should be on 4.4.2 and everything should be working as expected.

This is for people who are just looking to start from fresh, if you're already rooted and are already using Monx or a similar rom then you can skip steps 1 - 11.

If you experience any issues after installing the ROM then start from 1.

Try again the steps above, do not reboot the phone after flashing the rom
Power of and use the flashtool to flash the ftf file accordingly

For some reason my camera wont focus and i cant take pictures? I can open it up fine and switch between modes and.stuff but no pics or vids can be taken...i came from ihackers 3.0 with full wipe data,system,cache,dalvik and then flashed monx and.selected full wipe and installed c6902 modules manually amd then used flashtool for the correct ftf! Clearing camera data doesnt fix the issue
