Development Development for the Cricket Dream 5G

Search This thread
For starters, there's no thread for this device and I wasn't sure where to put it.

Secondly, me and a friend have been tinkering around with the Cricket Dream 5G and have successfully unlocked the bootloader and obtained root access. Unlocking the bootloader was the easy part. Anyways we've made a full device backup before rooting. I have a magisk patched boot.img. Just unlock the bootloader, flash the patchedboot.img and install magisk. There you go, you have root

⚠️ WARNING ⚠️

⚠️⚠️DO NOT FLASH A MODIFIED SUPER.IMG IT WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE ⚠️⚠️ You can, however modify your system, like removing or adding apps.
I bricked mine because I flashed a modified super img. It's stuck in preloader. Still learning this dynamic partition scheme, it's weird

Full backup on Google drive currently, gonna be moving to mega=>
https://mega.nz/folder/UARQCD6I#8CSNy43GWo6XjEKk_mlldw
Links below, all links are thru mega

Original boot=> https://mega.nz/file/JBAhHSTQ#Aw-GQQ6-StdNAhLsu0vdonNDXcBo4wXI8xEalQ99X2Y

Original boot is in bin format but magisk recognized it and patched it.

Patched boot.img=> https://mega.nz/file/hEJjlaxI#e2DdzvNkq1421uESaSQR4ZP_-CHvt6I_IDCEpyYDZqA

And an app for the magisk modules, not my work, only sharing=> https://mega.nz/file/VAQR0ARI#IUT42ycW5bbb8xVSDhDthREJzr1GEd5WHW0xZbkE8Ts

Also, relocking the bootloader after flashing the patched boot img, it will say there's no OS installed. It's still there. Just unlock it and it'll boot. Not sure why. I believe it's the secure boot being on

Just send a message on here if links are broken
If enough people are on this maybe we can get a working twrp 😁😁

Update: twrp available here => https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/development-for-the-cricket-dream-5g.4414603/

If anyone uses gpay, unlocking the bootloader will break it. But I know a workaround if anyone wants it.
@Welkwo is behind the twrp process.
My post is just a guide, really.
I have been able to rebuild working super without issue now. built it with AncientOS GSI in it and a 25mb fummy product image aong with modified vendor
 
You need to go up a few posts and see where they told me to use mtkclient. open mtkclient and then hold volume up and volume down simultaneously and while holding those buttons, plug in your phone.. it should register.
just for clarification, to get to brom: From device powered off, run mtkclient and then plug device into pc only holding vol-

    Thank God! I have numerous phones but for some reason, I have my main number through a sim card thast's unfortunately tied into this phone.. I have been searching online for the stock firmware for this p;hone for a long time with no conclusive results, so upon my search for it this morning, I came acrfoss your post and I almost craped my pants. Thank God.. noot for the almost crapped pants, but for the efforts of you and your friend.. Thank you so much.

    We are also working on a TWRP for the device. We can get it to boot but it doesn't recognize the partitions. I absolutely love the cricket dream 5g
