Every thing has done, But it can not into animation screen It just stuck in boot screen.

Every thing has done, But it can not into animation screen It just stuck in boot screen.

After that, I do the same thing like another devices when I use TWRP and they stuck, "I flash root method"

But with Le X651, The system show me "You don't use the original firmware, please contact bla bla bla"

Even I unpack boot.img/recovery.img(from TWRP backups) then remix something to fix, It always show me "You don't use the original firmware, please contact bla bla bla"

How can I do, please help.

Lock your bootloader then reboot. If it says your phone can't be trusted... Wait 2mins and it will reboot

Hey bro, I don't know if this was solved already, I had a similar problem and I couldn't find a working recovery, then I found out there's a verified stock recovery in the 25S versions hanging around. Tested and works with 28 versions smoothly. Sorry but I don't have it here (it's on my laptop and I'm with my phone right now) if you don't wanna download the whole 25S package I can upload it tomorrow. Cheers.

Hello Guys. .
Just got this post here.


I am also having a leX653 a.k.a Le pro 3 AI or Dual 3 .
Its a mediatek X23 4+64 gigs edition.

I have some strange issues with the phone and need your help to solve it.
I am able to unlock the bootloader but as soon as i restart it , it gets locked again. To keep it unlocked, i have to force shutdown the device after unlocking it.
Now,
I am able to Boot Twrp using the TWRP from lenovo K8 note and ramdisk from China Software Kernel.
I am also able to get root access using Magisk/SuperSu .
However , the problem i am facing is, the phone does not boot after , i tried my recovery to wipe the data partition. It looks like they are having some security flags to see if the phone has been formatted using some other recovery. Official Kernel was not booting at all .

TO CHECK , as soon as i was able to get in TWRP . I backed up my phone's kernel unpacked it, made ro.secure =0 and tried booting the phone from the modified kernel and VOILA!! it booted. but here is another twist.


Now if i keep my bootloader unlocked, my baseband does not gets detected and i cant use my phone to make calls. (Wifi and Bt works).

And if i lock my bootloader then it shows that my phone is not having official Kernel . Please visit nearest LeEco Center to get it checked. And then reboots. .

Need your help guys. . I am very close to get it all done.

Hi i have almost same situation as but i disabled oem unlock option in developer menu after that restart my phone with xposed framework installed.
I was trying to flash modified recovery image using magisk after that my phone is dead almost.

My phone don't boot in to android. I can't charge my phone because I get message on the beginning
my system is moddifyed my phone shut down automatically after 5 seconds, also i can't unlock bootloader via fastboot i get information "unlock operation is not allowed" .

I have Leeco 650x with mtk helio x27.
I only flashed modified recovery in magisk after that I disabled usb debug and oem unclock. after restart my phone I can't unlock my bootloader and I can't continue bootup to android.All I need to do is restore somehow original recovery.
But how to do that without unlocked bootloader in my situation?
I try to flash new Rome using flash tool but I have error 0xC0030003

Is here any powerful person to solve the problem.

So I have admittedly made the mistake of confusing the AI edition with the non AI edition, but nonetheless would like to continue on and make the most out of my device, so I'd like to start a thread where we can pool together and try to root the Le Pro 3 AI x651.

Quick note just to be explicit: This phone is very different to the LeEco Pro 3, and does not have a Qualcomm chipset and no source code at http://opensource.le.com/ and if its not too late you should not buy it.

ROM
The ROM for this device can be found under the name "FULL_X7_X7-CN-FN-KGXCNFN5902504131S-5.9.025S" (e.g. http://combinefile.com/home/browse/...5S_Firmware_Flash_File_Tested_By_Combinefile, if someone has suggestions for reuploading it let me know).

Similar Devices
When looking for help, the following are devices with similar chipsets that may yield resources, let me know if you know others. (Often phones just take a reference design for a lot of things):
Lenovo Note K8
LeEco x620


Unlocking
Most of the unlocking steps are similar to other phones
Go to Settings -> About -> Hit Build 7 times
Go to Settings -> Developer Options -> Enable OEM unlocking
Run 'adb reboot bootloader'
Use 'fastboot oem unlock'
You can now double check if your device is unlocked using 'fastboot oem device-info' (if anyone knows any other commands let me know)


Rooting?
This is where I have been making some progress, but haven't quite gotten there yet. So I know the following:

There is no TWRP for this device (yet)
TWRP from other MTK6797 devices does not work
You should be able to port TWRP if you get the recovery.img file, which is not included in the ROM
You can dump the recovery.img file if you have root
We can dump the boot.img, edit it, flash it to recovery and boot from it
Just changing ro.adb.secure/ro.secure does not solve it (see below)
'su' is also missing from /system/bin, I will try to add one and see what that does


Editing and booting boot.img
Download the ROM
Unpack boot.img (seems to be fine using "Superr's kitchen" though I'm guessing most tools/kitchens for this will work")
Edit e.g. default.prop
Pack boot.img
Run 'adb reboot bootloader'
Make sure you are unlocked then run: 'fastboot flash recovery boot.img' (I think directly booting with 'fastboot boot boot.img' may also work)
Run 'adb shell' and then perform 'cat /default.prop', you should see your changes
Unfortunately the ROM seems to have a file called '/data/recovery_rootcheck' and sadly rooting does not work, so this is WIP and any feedback ideas would be great


Extracting System.new.dat
This file contains most of the ROM files and is nice to see what the device all does. We can use the tool 'sprs2ext.exe' (and again there are probably many others that do the job) to extract it to a 'system.img.ext4' file. This can the be viewed with any ext4 viewing program, e.g. ext2explore.

Getting the recovery.img
It would be nice if some people could refrain from overwriting their recovery.img, since we need to dump it somehow (unless someone has other ideas sources).

http://androidbiits.com/root-leeco-le-pro-3-ai-x650-x651-easily/ has anybody tried this? I don't think this is gonna work

I stuck on boot from flash 025s rom finish.
I'd try to flash his boot.img but still stuck,
Then I run his boot.img by fastboot, And can boot.

That's mean we have to boot from out side by his boot.img.

If you have a rooted x651 can you change 1080p 30fps to 1080p 60fps in open camera app or other ?

I tried but it failed. I just install mods that don't require root. I just do things like changing boot animation, changing system sounds but nothing related to root. When I installed magisk the phone didn't boot and it's super complicated to get it to fastboot as the phone keeps rebooting

I have lost the baseband too, but just after unlocking the bootloader, without even boot in TWRP or flashing magisk.
I fixed the baseband re-locking the bootloader.
I could try unlocking the bootloader, boot in TWRP (without flashing the img, just using "fastboot boot twrp.img"), flashing magisk e re-locking the bootloader, but I'm afraid that magisk + locked bootloader could result in a bricked device (caused by dm-verify or something like that). Have you some advices on how to root the device? Thanks.

hmm, well try to root it, and if it's working good, booting, than lock your bootloader and try to see if it's booting again. I don't think you can brick it, and even if you do it, I GUESS you should have a tutorial here how to unbrick it.

You can get temporary root. You cannot root it permanently. You can have root via magisk. Just install the latest magisk apk and tap install. It will generate a boot.img. Now copy it to your pc/laptop and boot from it and you will have root access. I tried installing V4A but some apps started force closing. You can control things like CPU governor. Once you restart your phone it will boot from the original boot.img in the phone which means no root. Note: do not flash the modified boot.img, just boot from it.

Btw can someone make a custom kernel to get full control of the CPU. I see that not all cpu cores can be put online. Only a set of quad cores run. I know there will be heat but I want all cores active for gaming.

    X650

    thanks for sharing you're experience, I'm waiting for X650 too.
    Can you explain me what kind of mistakes\what step you did that bricked the phone?
    Did you manage to resurrect it?

    I tried to get rid of Orange State message which will come up after flash of TWRP.
    It will tell you, that your phone can not be trusted anymore, blablabla...

    Somewhere I have read about to flash "Stop-Orange something file" and this I did which was the big mistake.
    Afterwards it was completely bricked, even some interface was detected frequently for duration of seconds in PC, but no chance to use sp-flashtool at current state.

    So stay away of this. Please read "streamlined Root" thread from post #12 for details.

    Finally I tried to disconnect the battery or a while, but this also did not help. (Yes, I opened the phone ;) )

    So using https://github.com/phhusson/super-bootimg I was able to perform a systemless root.

    To do this:
    1. Download super-bootimg: `git clone https://github.com/phhusson/super-bootimg.git'
    2. In the super-bootimg create the directory output/lex651/ and place boot.img as orig-boot.img in it
    3. Build it using `chmod +x build.sh; ./build.sh myphone`
    4. Boot using `fastboot boot boot-output-lex651-su-eng-r203.img` (once in recovery etc), the image is located in myphone/lex651/

    I'll try uploading the boot bin in a moment. Could someone please try dumping their recovery.img then we can see if we can get TWRP to work?
