Which model of the phone do you have? 3gb or 2gb? Did you download the correct version of spacerom v1.0 for your model? Did you use the scatter file from the recovery or from the official 5.0 ROM?

Stapo101, there is no stable lollipop for e04, no?

Well it's probably a matter of opinion but I found the official lollipop ROM dated 30th April and the one posted on this thread from 7th may to be very stable. As stable as the KitKat ROM in my experience.

Have this error because the partitions are change.
You have 2 possibility, or format all again or you can try to use the same scatter file that you had use with official lollipop rom

I have 3gb version and the scatter is from recovery

And do you definitely down load the 3gb version of the spacerom v1.0? If you didn't then make sure you download the right version. If you did then use the scatter file from the official ROM and replace the boot, recovery and userdata files with the ones from spacerom.

How did you root? Did you download the flashable SuperSU.zip from XDA or did you just let TWRP try and root on its own? You need to use the flashable SuperSU.zip and install via recovery.

Hi, I just wanted to go into cwm recovery a minute ago, but I pressed the wrong buttons (I don't go.into recovery that often so i pressed power and volume down). Instead of going into recovery it went into factory mode and I got a list of Chinese words in Chinese characters and had no idea how to get out, so i pressed the power button again and my phone began to all kinds of weird stuff (something with gps, all kinds of colored rectangles on the screen, a green screen with a terrible peep noise), but after that it thankfully booted up normally and everything was still there, except the date was reset (just like when you pull out the battery). Does anyone have any idea what I just did or can anyone give me some information about factory mode?
I'm still on the latest stock kitkat from the builtin ota app and rooted.

Well guys, I finally managed to install the official lollipop 5.0 version :D and I also flashed the files from spacerom to enable TWRP and fixed the IMEI numbers. I am so happy!

I am just not sure about the last step of rooting the phone. I tried IROOT but for some reason this didn't work.

"To root either ROMs (if that's what you want to do) then put the SuperSU flashable zip (found elsewhere on XDA) on the root directory of your built in SD card and install it through TWRP recovery."

Where can I find this SuperSU flashable zip and there is no 'root directory' that I can see in my phone storage files?

Thanks

Here's the link: https://download.chainfire.eu/696/SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46.zip
Root directory means the top level, just put it on your SD card. Reboot into recovery (I think you know now how to do it), and flash the downloaded zip with TWRP. Reboot, you're rooted.

All done :) very happy now. Now I need to sort out the terrible sound quality of this phone. I have installed Viper4android. Anyone know of a good guide that goes through which settings to change?

I installed the Official Lollipop version from this link and have had no issues as of yet.

http://www.needrom.com/download/ecoo-e04-2/

I personally prefer the look and layout of KitKat but I am sure that the actual phone will work better with this update.

Yeah sure. Always good to see new versions, but that could still be an issue.. on the official Ecoo download page they've posted a 'new Lolipop ROM' looking like a regular update, but it seemed to be a CM12 Alpha/Beta ROM which messed up some people's phones and in the best scenario just doesn't really work well.

So this 20150521 ROM could be anything. A new ROM, a CM12 ROM and/or a existing older ROM which is now re-posted and that's why it's now called 05_21 :eek:

Only way to find out is to try out :)

If it was for the 2GB version I would try it

Obviously, one's tastes in terms of audio settings are completely subjective. They will also depend a great deal on the headphones that you use. If you haven't done so already you should increase the max volume of the headphone output via MTK Engineering Mode app.

With my Bose 5G7VR in-ear headphones I get pretty good results from the following settings in Viper4Android (these are all available via the "Expert" setting under "UI Setting"):

a. Spectrum extension: strength 0.6
b. Enable equalizer and max everything (this gives an extra bit of volume boost)
c. Headphone sound+: level 3
d. Dynamic system: unknown type IV, dynamic bass 12% (this will be competely dependant on your 'phones) try each of the headphone types from the menu until you get one that sounds good for you)
e. Viper bass: 40hz,6.0db
g. Clarity: 8.0db
g. Output gain 6.0db (this gives you a very healthy volume boost)

    I am looking to install the custom ROM by simoneguarrera and apparently it comes with the TWRP recovery pre -installed. Before I attempt to download that I wanted to back up my KitKat 4.4.4. My issue is that I can't find an image file for the TWRP tool which means that I will probably have to backup KitKat 4.4.4 using the CMW tool. My question is if I use the CMW to back up kitkat 4.4.4, and I then download the custom ROM with the TWRP tool pre installed, would I also have to have the CMW tool installed incase I ever needed to restore KitKat 4.4?

    I have been reading and learning about flashing to familiarize myself with the process and apparently it is simpler to install a custom ROM using the TWRP tool. You just download the custom ROM to your SD card, then press install on the boot menu and select the ROM from your SD card. Has anyone else installed a custom ROM using this method.
    --------------
    This is a very difficult learning process. I seem to run into problems with everything I try. I don't want to risk anything so I might try and install CWM and it should overwrite the TWRP file I assume. On page 5 of this thread a member sent a link to download a CWM.rar file to use and flash with flashify, however it seems that flashify doesn't let me select this file to unzip. Can you not extract Rar files with flashify?

    Would unzipping the TWRP file again but this time selecting one of the Wipe Data, delvik or cache options make a difference?


    All you need to do is follow the steps I laid out in post #262. I have included them again here but with added instructions to back up your 4.4.4 install first:


    First off, make sure you run sp flash tool as an administrator if using windows.

    I will assume you have a stock install of 4.4.4 already on your phone.
    How to make a back up of your 4.4.4 install
    The first thing you will need is a custom recovery. I would recommend TWRP over CWM myself. You can find TWRP for 4.4.4 here: http://www.needrom.com/download/e04/
    I haven't used this on 4.4.4 myself but I expect the zip file once unzipped would contain a file called recovery.img. It may also contain a scatter file for the phone.
    You need to flash this TWRP recovery to your phone using SP Flashtool with the option of "Download".
    Make sure you are using a scatter file for your version of the phone (3GB?) and for 4.4.4. If you don't have one then download the official 4.4.4 rom from needrom (http://www.needrom.com/download/ecoo-e04-3g-ram/) and use the scatter file found in the BIN folder of that ROM. I would recommend using the scatter file from the official 4.4.4 ROM for your phone just in case any scatter file that comes with the TWRP file is for the 2GB version.
    So, back to SP Flashtool. You are using "Download" (rather than "format all + download" or "firmware upgrade") to flash the recovery. You do this by selecting the correct scatter file (above), make sure all of the listed files are unchecked except for recovery. Now click on the right hand side where it shows the path to the recovery file. This will open up a dialogue that will allow you to select a different recovery file. Select the recovery.img that you got from the TWRP download from needrom.
    Then press the download button without your phone being attached to the PC.. Take the battery out of your phone and then put it back in and connect the phone to the pc via USB cable (don't switch the phone on at this point).
    Hopefully SP flashtool will do it's thing and you will end up with a big tick in a window.
    You can now unplug your phone and boot it up. Everything should be working as it was before.
    Now you are ready to make your back up.
    Power off your phone, then go into the recovery by keeping volume up and the power button pressed until a small menu appears on your screen. Use the volume up button to move the arrow to "recovery" and press volume down to select it.
    You will now be booting into the custom recovery.
    To make a back up select "backup" from the menu. Check everything you want to make a back up of (all of it if you like) and then swipe right to make it happen.
    This will make a backup in a folder called TWRP on your internal SD card. Once completed, go "back" (rather than reboot) to the main menu.
    You will now want to copy the backup to your actual sd card. The best way to do this is using the file manager within TWRP. Navigate your way to the backup and copy the relevant folder, then select your destination folder on your sd card (you may want to create a new folder for this (I have one called "TWRP backups"). Once the folder is selected press the button with the tick in it and it will copy the files across.
    Once completed you have the backup on your sd card and you are ready to make a fresh install of whatever ROM you want.

    How to install Lollipop for the first time
    Switch off your phone and take out your sd card.
    Download your chosen ROM, I am going to assume it is a lollipop ROM (whether the official one or Spacerom v1.0) . Please make sure you download the correct ROM for your version of the phone (eg 2gb or 3gb)
    If you are flashing lollipop for the first time you may need to choose the option "Format all + download" or at the very least "Firmware upgrade" after you have selected the scatter file that came with the ROM.
    Then press download button without your phone being attached to the PC.. Take the battery out of your phone and then put it back in and connect the phone to the pc via USB cable (don't switch the phone on at this point). Hopefully SP flashtool will do it's thing and you will end up with a big tick in a window.
    This will wipe everything from your phone.
    Boot up the phone and make sure everything is working ok.
    If you have used Spacerom then it already has the TWRP recovery (for lollipop) included. This will allow you to make backups of lollipop but will not allow you to restore your kitkat back up (see further down this post to find out how to restore your kitkat backup).
    If you used the official lollipop ROM (http://www.needrom.com/download/ecoo-e04-2/) then if you want TWRP recovery you will need to flash the recovery.img, boot.img and userdata.img from the Spacerom v1.0 ROM.
    To root either ROMs (if that's what you want to do) then put the SuperSU flashable zip (found elsewhere on XDA) on the root directory of your built in SD card and install it through TWRP recovery.

    How to Change IMEI:

    1) Dial *#*#3646633#*#*
    2) Connectivity
    3) CDS information
    4) Radio Information
    5) For Phone 1: Input IMEI in this format: AT +EGMR=1,7,”IMEI SIM1” (Space between AT & +)
    7) Tap on the SEND AT COMMAND, if successful you should see a success report of "AT COMMAND sent" at the bottom of the screen
    8) Restart and use *#06# to confirm if it has changed
    9) For Phone 2: Input IMEI in this format: AT +EGMR=1,10,"IMEI SIM2" (Space between AT & +)
    10) Tap on the SEND AT COMMAND, if successful you should see a success report of "AT COMMAND sent" at the bottom of the screen
    11) Restart and use *#06# to confirm if it has changed


    I never had any joy using this method. I download the app called "engineer mode mtk" from the playstore the;
    Swipe left to get to the "Connectivity" options
    Select "CDS Information" then "Radio Information"
    Then select "phone 1" or "phone 2" and type your "AT+......" command in the relevant space and click on SEND AT COMMAND. Do this for both phone 1 and phone 2.
    I'm not sure where the space needs to go, it's either before the "+" sign or after it. It will only accept it one way.
    Either reboot or switch airplane mode on and then off to see if your IMEIs have been accepted and you can pick up a network signal.

    Whilst you are in engineering mode you might want to adjust the headphone volume. Swipe to the "hardware" options and then "audio" and then "headset mode". Where it says "Max Vol" set it to 160.

    Here is another fix you may want to try. For some reason there seems to be an issue with the MAC address that the phone creates, I think it's due to the fact that it starts with "00" . This can cause an entry in your wifi list called something like "NVRAM error....". It can also mean a wifi router forgets your phone when it's been asleep. This can be a pain when you are using hotel wifi for example. This is the fix I found for it, you need to be rooted.

    Install BusyBox from the playstore
    Run busybox for a minute so that it gathers your phone's information
    Install an app called "Chamelemac" from the playstore
    When you run the app it will give you the option to "generate random MAC", click this
    Now click on "apply new MAC"
    This will write the new MAC address to the system.
    Reboot the phone and if you look in settings>>about phone>>status you will see the new MAC address
    You will also see that the NVRAM error in the wifi list is gone

    How to restore your KitKat backup
    If for some reason you wanted to restore your KitKat backup from earlier, then use what you have learned above to perform a fresh install of the official 4.4.4 ROM and then the 4.4.4 recovery (all without the sd card in place).
    Boot up to make sure everything works then power down.
    Put your sd card back in and boot into recovery.
    In recovery you want to create the TWRP directory on your internal sd card. What I do is create a new back up but uncheck everything apart from "logo", this will create a backup of your logo only (small file) and in doing so will create the necessary TWRP backup folder on your internal sd card.
    Once that is done, use the file manager to find your 4.4.4 backup on your external sd and copy it across to your newly created TWRP>Backups>E04xxx folder.
    Once the copying is complete go back to the main menu and select "restore" this should then show your backup, select it and swipe right to start the restore. Then reboot once complete.

    This is as clear as I can make it. There is a fair chance that in the time it took to write this post someone has already addressed your issues in which case I have wasted half an hour of my life! ;)

    Success with Lollipop+TWRP+Root+Viper4Android+Exposed

    I can confirm success with this phone and Lollipop. I now have Lollipop running with TWRP recovery that allows me to make backups. The phone is also rooted (using flashable SuperSU zip from recovery) and I also managed to install Xposed yesterday which is running well and improving battery life using the Amplify module. I wrote this over on needrom and will quote it here:

    Ok. The ROM that I used was the one available at ecoo.hk/download.html . It's the one for the E04 3GB "Android 5.0 20150430".

    I am going to assume you know how to use SP Flashtool already, if not there are plenty of tutorials around. Here are the steps that I would reccomend, although I am strictly an amateur and some of them may be redundant but worked for me.

    ****Be aware that this will install a completely fresh install on your phone, you will lose all data and your IMEI information which you will have to enter later. Do not do any of this if you don't have a note of your 2 IMEI numbers. They should be written on the packaging or under the battery of the phone*****

    1) Download the ROM from the ecoo.hk website
    2) Remove any SD card from the phone
    3) Flash the full rom using SP Flash Tool, use the option "Format All + Download"
    4) Boot up the phone, you now have a "stock" install of the ecoo android 5.0 ROM, at this point you could open up the Fingerprints app if you like and check that it is working.
    5) To install the recovery you will need to download the latest version of Spacerom from the original Italian forum. The link can be found on needrom. If you go into the comments for the Spacerom ROM you will find the link. You will then find the download link to the ROM on page 88 post #874 (sorry, I don't have enough posts to be able to post a direct link here)
    6) Using SP Flashtool you will need to use the scatter file from the stock rom, select download only, uncheck everything other than boot, recovery and userdata. Replace these 3 files with the ones found in the Spacerom (you can do this by clicking on their paths in SP Flashtool, it will ask you to browse for the new file)
    7) Once you have flashed the recovery, boot and userdata you can reboot and again check that the Fingerprints app is working
    8.) You will now need to re-enter your IMEI information, – I use the MTK Engineer mode app found in the playstore.
    9) To Root the phone I used the latest SuperSU flashable zip, this can be found at XDA amongst other places. You can flash this via recovery, this will give you root access, I find it easier than iRoot, Kingroot etc.
    10) Don't forget to put your sd card back in!

    Once you have rooted I would thoroughly reccomend installing Viper4Android, this vastly improves the audio and most importantly the headphone volume. Search for "installing viper4android on android 5.0" for instructions and files. If you use your phone for listening to music then this is a must have for the E04 as left to it's own devices the volume level on headphones stinks.

    Just FYI I also use HTC Sense 7 and Blinkfeed as my launcher of choice, again this can be found on XDA. I had no issues installing this and can switch between this launcher and the default nova launcher in Settings>Home.
    @SimoneGuarrera (Spacerom) has done some great work and as you have downloaded Spacerom you may want to have a play with that. I have installed it and it works, comes pre-rooted and also has TWRP already, and the fingerprints work. I know that it is running a modified kernel so he may have made some improvements to the overheating issue. I haven't been running it long enough to tell – and google translate is hard work on the forum! One big bonus is that it comes with it's own OTA updates.

    I installed the experimental xposed for ARMv8 yesterday (found on XDA) and it worked straight off the bat. I have been able to use Amplify and Gravity. By adjusting the settings for NlpWakeLock and NlpCollectorWakeLock the battery performance today is vastly improved.

    Hope this all helps.

    Hot knot is on spacerom.


    Sent from my ECOO E04 using XDA Free mobile app

    yes but here we are checking why it is not there in the stock lollipop of where is it in it.

    ---------- Post added at 09:26 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:48 AM ----------

    Please note I will not be held responsible if anything happens to your phone. Do this at your own risk. Search on google if u want to know the risks if the any of these processes here is done wrong. If you are sure you want to do this then proceed here.

    Flashing Lollipop

    Things needed:
    Rom of course: Either the official stock lollipop rom or custom rom that is Spacerom.
    Stock rom: http://www.needrom.com/download/ecoo-e04-2/
    Spacerom: http://www.needrom.com/download/ecoo-e04-3gb-spacerom-1-0-0-android-5-0-0/
    SP Flash Tools: It is there in the download link of any rom above here.
    Drivers installed:
    Tutorial on how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAxTCvRmlio
    Drivers in the link of the video description.
    And finally patience

    Flashing the rom:

    Note: in this walkthrough i will be mostly pointing out to the stock rom's files but the same procedure applies to the spacerom.

    Steps:
    Step 1: Install the drivers following the tutorial shown in the video.
    Step 2: Open SP Flash Tools.
    Step 3: Click on the scatter loading option and locate the scatter file. It will be .txt file. The name will be MT6752_Android_scatter.txt. (in the spacerom it is located as you open the folder and in the stock rom it is located in the BIN folder.)
    Step 4: Make sure that in the list that all the files are there and nothing is missing.
    Step 5: Disconnect any phones if plugged in the system and do not plug any in yet.
    Step 6: Select the "Format All + Download" option in the drop down list.
    Step 7: Now press the download button (still no phones plugged in yet.)
    Step 8: switch off the phone and take out the battery, after 5-10 seconds insert the battery and do not switch it on.
    Step 9: plug in the phone switched OFF and with the usb cable that came WITH the phone.
    Step 10: You should see a bar at the bottom that first turns red, then it starts to count up with a yellow bar filling up and after it is done a green tick in a box.
    Step 11: You have flashed your lollipop/spacerom rom now :D.

    Most probably your imei numbers will be removed/missing right now.
    Your imei numbers should be there in the back of your phone under the battery in a sticker.
    To add it back...
    1) Dial *#*#3646633#*#*
    2) Connectivity
    3) CDS information
    4) Radio Information
    5) For Phone 1: Input IMEI in this format: AT +EGMR=1,7,”IMEI SIM1” (Space between AT & +)
    7) Tap on the SEND AT COMMAND, if successful you should see a success report of "AT COMMAND sent" at the bottom of the screen
    8) Restart and use *#06# to confirm if it has changed
    9) For Phone 2: Input IMEI in this format: AT +EGMR=1,10,"IMEI SIM2" (Space between AT & +)
    10) Tap on the SEND AT COMMAND, if successful you should see a success report of "AT COMMAND sent" at the bottom of the screen
    11) Restart and use *#06# to confirm if it has changed
    (Note: in step 5 and step 9 the "IMEI SIM1" AND "IMEI SIM2" means the imei number should be inserted there.)

    Now to root the phone.
    (please note that if u have just flashed the spacerom rom you will not have to do this following steps.)
    The easiest and simple way I have seen is by using the TWRP method.
    First you will need to change the recovery. To do this:
    1) Open SP Flash Tool again and load the scatter file from the rom which is on the phone right now.(most probably it will be the stock rom as that is the other rom there is to install.)
    2) Uncheck all the boxes on the left except for boot, recovery and userdata.
    3) Now locate all these 3 files from the spacerom folder.
    4) This time use the Download Only option.
    5) Follow step 7 - 10 in the above rooting method.

    (Now all people with or without spacerom have to do this.)
    Boot into your phone and check whether everything works.
    Now boot into the recovery, that is switch off the phone, then hold the Volume UP + Power Button at the same time and hold till a very small menu shows at the middle left of the screen.
    Use the volume up to navigate to recovery and use volume down to confirm. Now you will booted into the recovery.
    You may want to backup first so that you dont lose anything.
    Then choose the reboot option in the bottom.
    Then an option will appear asking you if u want to root the phone.
    Slide the slider to the right, it should install something and boot back into the phone.
    Open your app drawer and open the Install SuperSU app (it has a flying android logo).
    Select The TWRP option in the bottom right.
    It will do its work and finally reboot back into the system and you are done!
    Enjoy your new lollipop with root.
