That´s the one that I tried.I thought it was 8 gb version firmware,but they told me that is for 4 gb version.
The problem is mine is 02.04.13 version and i tried to flash it with 14.03.13 version.Now is bricked.
So i need 02.04.13 version or later or even a backup ......

Here, take a backup of my Android 4.2.1_Cubot_M6588_20130402_CWM_bacup 4GB ROM

Sorry to interject, but ZaYAC-ua how did you load ClockWorkMod on your Cubot (M6589?) ?. At least I'm guessing you did indicated by the CWM backup part in the above filename. I've been looking for instructions but couldn't find any. I just got my Cubot M6589 today.

Thanks ZaYAC-ua. I finally got the flash tool working after a while, but unfortunately the recovery files don't seem to work properly for my phone. Now if I try to boot to recovery the screen just goes pink and then the phone reboots as normal. I'm downloading your rom backup now, but you wouldn't happen to have a copy of the stock recovery.img would you? I didn't take a backup first, because I didn't figure out how. :(

PAPPAFRITAS did you magange to restore your phone???

If not the 02.04.13 firmware is online. I won't post a direct link, since I think the site is a small personal webserver, but google "A890-20130402_e2001_v89_ad1.rar" and you will find it in the last link (index of c). Password is geekbuying.com. This is someones mirror of the dropbox download which has been taken down. I have just last night unbricked my own phone with this firmware.

Ah, well then I am very grateful that you kept a copy of that rom, as the dropbox links from geekbuying have been deactivated. Your copy got me out of a real bind when I bricked my phone. Sorry that I made mention of your personal server on an open forum. I hope I haven't caused you any problems due to the extra bandwidth. PM me if you want me to pull the above posts so you don't get any more traffic.

Last week Cubot published a new ROM in their Dropbox. Just go to www.cubot.net -> service and download the file for A6589/M6589 for the download location.

Quite stable and fast. I did use SP_Flash_Tool though instead of the attached flash tool. The ROM is using the Touchwiz launcher, hopefully they will update this in a future release.

Hi,

I'm having this same problem with my CUBOT M6589 (brand new). The phone boots ok, and after some minutes the screen becomes pink and reboots. May you post how you have solved this?

I've already applied the latest "new firmware" that's on cubot's website.
