This is a new thread for the star n9770 mt6577 Dual core.

ROOT
I have just used this method to safely root my star n9770 and worked perfect,it just wipes your time and date after root so just reset them and that's it.
you must follow instructions....

Thank you !

Do you know whats the differences between the both firmwares in your post are ?
My N9770 will not fall into Deep Sleep. It just clock the CPU down to 250mhz, but its still on and drains the battery within 12 hours.

I tried several ROMs i've found but all the same. Maybe your stock firmware solves the problem.

i have no idea but i have tried to install the stock firmware i got today but it wont happen,and flashed with the other firmware i got from kylie and its not good.
if you have any working roms i would seriously appreciate a link to some roms as my colours are washed out with the kylie firmware and stock need to be done in recovery but can not do it as wont have saying not signed?so i need a little help

ref battery you need to root and then set cpu to ondemand i use no frills cpu from play to do this

I tried out this Taiwan101 ROM, this one from a russian forum (25/07?) and this one from a chinese forum (newer Taiwan?).

I also had the issue with these strange colors, its the wrong display driver. I fixed it with SP_MDT by selecting RX_50NT_401B as display driver. It seems that these ROMs had all RX_50NT_365A as default which end up in wrong colors.

With the 25/07 Firmware i also killed my cameras, should also be fixable with the correct drivers.


This 'not signed' error appears also with custom recovery ?

yep i can not get the back camera to work/switch, going to try your later rom is it rooted?
How do i install these roms?the later newer Taiwan as i am not used to dual core,do you copy zip to sd card (internal) and go to recovery and update via sd card?
and how would you change the display driver if not flashing via tools
Did you ever have the cameras working as they should?
100 questions.......
hope we can get there in the end

Yes exactly, you had to copy the file to the sd card and flash it via recovery. But you had to install a custom recovery first (i flashed only the recovery. Flashing also the boot.img and the preloader out of this zip ended with a not booting phone.

I flashed the driver with tools. Not the hole ROM, just the uboot.bin. It seems that sp_mdt saves the driver in uboot when you close the programm. I did so and flashed the uboot with the 'normal' flashtool.

Both cameras survived every change of firmware until i flashed the 25/7 ROM.

It seems that there are several hardware version. With the Taiwan101 firmwares the external sd card will not be recognized. I flashed the boot.img from the 13/07 firmware and the sd card came back. SD card is also out of function with your stock rom.
I still had the problem with phone not going into deep sleep. Also NoFrills couldn't change that. Maybe i've not found the right ROM for my hardware yet. I got it from CECT.

but no help to me

The root tutorial posted here does not work with new firmware,so i copied recovery image from custom recovery (brunos)and replaced recovery in new firmware and flashed using mdt with the driver change for graphics..it worked and installed custom recovery and i then proceeded to root with the cwm-su zip in recovery and it worked.
but still no back camera

yes i used the same settings but still no back camera and other non stock camera apps will not work
i am uploading the modified firmware with these settings in the uboot and with the custom recovery in so can be straight flashed in one go.
