There has been a lot of unpleasantness within the small community of THL W100 owners in the past couple of days which have ended with the closing of a few threads, which I find quite disappointing, as there was a lot of good information in them, and some useful links, most importantly for me, a link to a download of the THL W100 stock rom, which I have only just realised I do not possess any more. If anyone has this on their computer, please, please upload it so we all can benefit.

I'm planning on starting a custom rom for the THL w100, but I can't start it without the stock rom. I have access to the ThL.W100.130701.JBV2.HD.EN.COM.8P32_MT6589 ROM, but I am looking for the first hardware revision's stock ROM.

Things I am planning on doing to the rom include
  • Stock AOSP Lockscreen
  • Screenshot in power menu
  • Dictionary fix
  • Optional resizing of "internal SD card" into phone storage
  • Hopefully a camera fix for the newer hardware
  • Easy GPS.conf
  • Some minor speed tweaking
  • Integration with the amazing GravityBox
  • No Bloat!

That was the majority of my ideas I believe, I wrote them previously in a thread which ended up being deleted unfortunately.

Please note that I do not care about donations, and I am most certainly NOT trying to rip off or steal from any other THL W100 custom ROM developers.
Hopefully the THL W100 users can find this thread and assist on my search, and together we can build a great custom ROM for the THL W100, a very deserving phone!

Anyone know from which camera firmware change? I think it is from 07/01/13 and there is a previous firmware ThL.W100.130627.JBV2.HD.EN.COM.8P32_MT6589 that works for the first W100 THL.

one guy called Teddyking say this (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...325150&page=36 DELETED POST)


"Successfully root w100 with 130701 firmware
RO.EDi Fusion 1.0 + camera patch is NOT work for me.
Rear cam is still missing.

Anyway, some Thai guy can successfully root w100 with 130701 firmware.
Here is how i did. (tested, work !)

- Back up and make sure that you can accept the risk of brick you phone. This is from trials and errors, guru please suggest if there is anything wrong with this method.

- Download UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.41.zip from http://download.chainfire.eu/339/Sup...erSU-v1.41.zip
copy to the root of your microSD. (without zip extraction)


- Install official firmware 130701 from needrom

- Install CWM recovery, i used previous version of RO.EDi, v6.0.3.2, installed with SP Tool.
*** I used scatter-loading file that come with 130701
*** I choose only "recovery checkbox" and browse to "recovery.img" from RO.EDi W100 CWM v6.0.3.2

- Turn the phone off and enter CWM

- install zip from sd card -> choose zip from sdcard -> UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.41.zip

- Reboot and enjoy rooted W100"

Sorry for my English, I'm Spanish

What a shame mods deleted the ro.edi thread cause it had a lot of valuable information for thl w100 users.
Was it not possible to just delete offending posts mods ?
