Hello guys. Recently I bought this Letv S1 Pro. Its a total beast with awesome looks. As its a Chinese device the playstore didn't come as built in. After some research in various chinese sites I have manged to install TWRP, Gapps and even root my device.
The Tutorial is described here.
http://bbs.letv.com/thread-643672-1.html
But its in chinese. So here I am going to share it for you.

Guide to install TWRP , Root and Gapps
1. At first go to developer option in your phone and tick "USB Debugging"
2. Then connect to your phone and install all the drivers which should be automatically installed. Check device manager whether your pc detected your phones adb or not. If not then you have to do some more works. At first download latest google usb drivers from here and extract.
http://developer.android.com/sdk/win-usb.html#
Now from device manager in your pc right click on the unrecognized Adb interface and select update driver. Then locate the usb driver that you just downloaded and choose list of devices. Choose Android phone from the list of devices and install the drivers and reboot your pc. This will install the adb drivers.
3. Then download X800 TWRP Recovery 2.8.7.0, SuperSU 2.52, and Letv google-new from the follwing liks

4. Copy SuperSu and Letv google-new to your phone
5. Extract X800 TWRP Recovery 2.8.7.0 in you pc and then connect your phone to pc with USB debugging on
6. Launch the recovery batch file and press enter and follow the instruction. You may have to press enter again and again 2-3 times to complete the recovery flashing.
7. If all things goes well your phone should reboot to TWRP recovery.
8. Flash SuperSU and Letv google new via TWRP. You should flash any of these when you first boot in to TWRP otherwise you may end getting TWRP replaced by stock recovery. It's weird but this is how it works

Download debloated roms from here and enjoy

Dear, I bought it through my friend in china. The built quality is top notch. The phone feels a little heavy but the looks is killer. The camera is great. The images are sharp and have vivid colors. My only complain will be it's battery. You will only get about a day out of it. Hope it will be fixed with updates. Here are some screenshots.

1. At first go to developer option in your phone and tick "USB Debugging"
2. Then connect to your phone and install all the drivers which should be automatically installed. Oh, one thing you pc should have the adb drivers installed. If you have already done some flashing activities with your pc then it should be already installed there so don't worry about that.
3. Then go to this link and download Update SuperSU 2.46, Letv Le1 TWRP recovery and Letv google-new
http://pan.baidu.com/s/1c0rUOuO#path=%252FLETV
4. Copy SuperSu and Letv google-new to your phone
5. Extract Letv Le1 TWRP recovery in you pc and then connect your phone to pc with USB debugging on
6. Launch the chinese recovery batch file and press enter. You may have to press enter again and again 2-3 times to complete the recovery flashing.
7. If all things goes well your phone should reboot to TWRP recovery. At first you will see a chinese TWRP welcome screen but don't worry. Just tap the big button at the middle.
8. Then in the second screen tap the first button which is basically the install button and flash SuperSU by swiping. After that go back and return to the main menu. Tap the last button which is basically the reboot button and in second screen tap the first button which basically reboot to system and voila you will have SuperSu installed.
9. Now go to your pc and download a TWRP theme from here
https://s.basketbuild.com/devs/z31s1g/1440/TWRP%20287X_v1
10. Make a folder named "theme" and copy the downloaded theme from the upper link inside this folder and rename it to "ui"
11. Copy this theme folder in to the TWRP folder of your phone
12. Then again power off your phone and and go to recover by volume up + power button and voila you will have English TWRP.

I have also bought Letv Le 1 Pro x800 and it is an awesome device. I have made a video review if you guys want to check it out before buying:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PZfjYK91OQ


Great review!
I also used your tutorial video to sideload Google services after factory resetting my x600. It came from oppomart with the Play Store already installed and Google launcher automatically running. But I've had a lot of issues with the phone so I did a reset and your tutorial was very helpful. Thank you so much! Very professional!

Hi!

Was someone able to finish the tutorial ?
adb doesn't detect my device, the bat file can't do anything

I had already adb and fastboot configured in my PATH(available via the cmd) and they are updated.
USB Debugging was activated and I tried the 3 connections methods
- Media device (MTP)
- Camera(PTP)
- Charge only

Apparrently it is a problem related to the USB Driver:
uTs3iQ


hassib85, do you know if there's a usb driver provided by Letv ?

I don't know. I didn't install any drivers. My pc automatically detected my phone. One thing you need to allow adb from your pc in your phone. When you try the batch file a dialogue box should pop out i your phone that your pc trying to connect via adb, you need to allow that in you phone. If this also don't work try this, go to recovery in your phone while phone connected to pc. This also install some drivers. Just wait for the drivers to be installed and again restart your pc.

This tutorial worked perfectly. I'd add that you must remember to reboot your PC after installing all drivers and ADB drivers. I was held up for hours until I was like, "DUH!!". Then I side loaded TWRP in Chinese and used your guide and link to get the English theme. Voila!!

Hello from France,

Here is my version :

CURRENT : 5.0.2 5.0.002s stable 81s
I have several problems:
-some bloatware crashe
-can't root (with your tuto ) because I don't have ADB drivers
-I can't update to 5.0.003S via the update application, it fails I don't know why.

Hope I will fixe all these pb with your help.

Thank you very much guys :)

EDIT:
I have managed to install ADB drivers with this tutorial ( http://visualgdb.com/tutorials/android/usbdebug/manualinstall.php) so now the batch file recognize my phone but I can't access to the TWRP on step 7, I am stuck with the TUX pingouin and a black screen and when I press enter again, the cmd window is closing.

EDIT 2: It tooks me 1day but I have done everything ! If you have some questions I'll be available to answer from my experience

Hi Meleor,

I was also finally able to make the batch file work but same problem that you are describing...stuck at step 7 with the Tux Pinguin then if a press Enter and the window closes.
Could you please describe me what you did to make it work ? (je suis français aussi, merci d'avance pour ton aide!)

Ok I was finally able to make it but i'm really not sure what was different, i did several reboots and changed several times the adb driver until having in the "Device Manager" window:
a component named "CMCC ADB Device" and then
as a sub-component, something named "CMCC Composite ADB Interface"
Then the batch finally worked.

Thanks a lot hassib85 for the translation!

Well I updated the android version manually and then I insisted and it worked ! It is great if it works for you mate.

What build are you ? I reached the 5.0.2 5.0.003s now and everything works fine for me.

Hi guys,


I just bought this morning the LeTV One Pro from Oppomart.com, i hope that everything is going to be fine about the shipping... My first question : Did you buy it from Oppomart as well ? And how long did it take to receive it in France ? (Je suis aussi français).

Can you make a writing review, just to tell us your impressions about camera, battery, EUI, if the Snapdragon 810 gets really warm ? How about the 4K or 1080p capture ? As i read on the web that it's in .3gp format ?!! :-/ How about the fact that the language is only in english ? I'm comfortable with this language but just wondering it it can be problematic in a daily use ? I hope that LeTV will release an update with multilanguages...

Also, what about 4G and 3G signal, as 800mhz is missing ? It was missing as well on my Huawei Mediapad X1 that i bought and imported from China but i never felt any trouble with 4G signal (I'm with Bouygues Telecom).

Anyway, any feedback from you guys would be really appreciate meanwhile i'm waiting my LeTV smartphone ;)

Well, after 2 days of struggling hacks to have the right android version and implement the root i can say I am very happy with the phone.

Negative points: i have 3,6gb of ram not really 4gb; 4k camera is a little crappy but it will be improve with new version i guess; very warm phone with the snapdragon 810 heat problem; the EUI is adapted to chinese so i had to fl a launcher so it is now convenient;

I ordered it for 499euros on aliexpress and it came in 10 days with dhl express.

I will be happy to help you if needed

Thanks for your feedback. Finally i cancelled my order this morning, and i think i made the right choice when i read your negative points. The thing is it's their first smartphones, with snapdragon 810 sadly which is known for is warm/heat issues (i had the HTC One M9, i keep it one week and then i returned it), and i guess they have lot of things to learn about UI optimization, hardware, etc... Plus, i read online that chinese constructor are quite lame with update...

I was hesitating between LeTV 1 pro and LeTV MAX (but i think that LeTV MAX will be released in 8th august, but i saw on websites that it's already available so i'm quite confused :-/ ), i'll be following closely this thread of course and how their update fix all the issues that i've been reading on different forums (they're already fixed lot of issues).. But for the moment i'll stick with my Nexus 6 ;)

    Okay I'm at my wits end with this LeTV One Pro

    1st of all it came with the google play store, which is awesome. However all this bloatware and things I cant remove are annoying and getting in the way of the user experience to the point I find myself clearing things every time I look at the screen.

    I just want to root so I can remove bloatware.

    1) The OP's downloads are gone. so no luck there
    2) Someone mentioned it to be on LeTV's blog, however the downloads have been removed from there as well
    3) Someone mentinoed they found it on the Italian website androidiani, but you have to be a member and I still couldnt locate anything
    4) people mentioned they were able to root with RootKing.....I tried both the mobile app several times and the desktop version 4 times (all failed)

    Does anyone have a link to the files mentioned in the OP?

    I just want to root to get rid of this bloatware.

    I OTA updated right out of the box 5.0.006S(stable) running Android 5.02.

    Please help:mad:

    It isnt that hard, just enable USB debugging on your device, connect it to your pc and run the install over adb file in the recovery folder. To root, copy the supersu.zip to your sd card and flash it in the recovery. After that you can remove bloatware etc using titanium backup or an app like that.

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BydHskx25EciclJiNzFyV0JibHM/view?usp=sharing -> supersu
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BydHskx25Eciak5jYndDSUFKTlU/view?usp=sharing -> recovery
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BydHskx25EcibE5fSk5IVEcwakU/view?usp=sharing -> gapps (flashable, no problems with contact synchronization)
