I downloaded it on my phone and tried installing through the file Manager but IT says "parsing error". Trying from the Recovery also seems not possible, at least I guess, I pressed the Install Update Button, can't read Chinese. :D

Two translated Screens as an Attachment.
Someone told me that you have to flash the chinese Version first within the recovery and then the indian.
Could you try that?
But for the chinese Version you need an vpn to the vivo.cn

Hi,
I have tried the same thing, with same results ... not working. All I can say is that the chinese version of the ROM is not available on the chinese Vivo website, don't know why.
Do you want to change in order to test the Funtouch OS, or for some other reason ?

For me, I just dont wanna "test" Funtouch OS, I think its much better for an European User since Google Services arent really supported in Origin OS.
What services in particular ? I must say I don't see any issues for me so far. Btw, I wish I could test Funtouch anyway :)

I want to grab the chinese firmware in order to try rooting by flashing Magisk Patched Boot Image using Fastboot. Not sure this may work, though I want to give it a try at least.
Hope the chinese firmware will be available soon ...

Good Morning
To sync your Gmail contacts you need to download "google contacts Sync apk" from the web.
The idea of overwriting the global version with Funtouch OS is a very good one. However Origin OS works fine with the latest Vivo updates.
Just run adb to disable Chinese bloatware.

The only thing I really miss is Android Auto and that the preloaded application cloning app (Settings / Applications and permissions / Application cloning) is compatible with WhatsApp.
The latter I could solve with WhatsApp Business.
The Android Auto bug with the floating window permissions I could also fix it using adb but unfortunately there is no connection with the vehicle's infotainment system.

Has anyone got a solution?
Greetings
