Is there any links in order to download the latest 1.1.2 firmware version and install it manually? Cause after rooting the phone I can't update it through OTA

I've recently received my phone and updated at once to 1.1.4, but i have problems with my carrier and get this message "com.android.phone". I thought there was problem with update, so i flashed both official and custom rom 1.1.4, but problem still remains.
I tried to go back to 1.0.8 with spflash using the files above , but couldn't make it with the same scatter file. I didn't find the official rom either.
Do you may have any suggestion for me?

Yes HT7 PRO. This is the rom that the phone had before fota update. Do you may know how to flash any previous rom? I tried the second link that you mentioned before without luck.

Hello. Thanks again for the support. I know the way to flash to another rom (not expert of course), but the scatter file doesn't seem to work right for me and i get an error.
When i flash 1.1.4 stock or custom, then it's working fine. Which scatter file are you using with spflash?
what kind of error?
Try to be specific than somebody perhaps can help.
Scatter file is in 1 post

You are right again. I get "BROM ERROR S_DL_GET_DRAM_SETTINGS_FAIL (5054) – BROM Error 5054", which means that the file i'm trying to flash is incompatible.
But i'm trying to flash "system_ht7_pro_kingroot" or "HT7_Pro_boot_recovery" and have the same error with Homtom_HT7_Pro_Scatter.txt. The first one is the image of system and the other one is image of boot and recovery.
If I use the scatter file of 1.1.4 (MT6735M_Android_scatter.txt of stock or custom rom), then I have no problem to make it work with them but not with previous roms.

I have 1.08 used scatter that you have , to install TWRP . no problem. did not update to 1.1.4
You have not backup 1.08?

Unfortunately i didn't backup..my bad.
I saw that it was fine for everybody, so I didn't think there would be problem with my carrier.

    I am one of the people trying to solve the problems with battery life in both HT7 & HT7 Pro so I know the problems.
    No reason to attack me. Just do not buy it if you know how bad a firm is.
    Using Notification Light Widget and Disable Service solved the problem at the cost of not having lights notifications. I had to root both Ht7 and HT7 Pro to remove malware.
    But at the end Homtom phones are value for money as far as spec and design is concerned.
    And are performing quite well after adjusting.

    I do not like the idea that me and some other members of the forum are free support for Homtom and I would expect Homtom to improve their firmware themselves.
    since it is a 60-90 USD phone people are buying it anyway but with some effort it can be better

    I found a fix for wakelocks

    I've been able to be away from wakelocks on my device. It's a fix until homtom release a real fix to be able to use notification led without lose all our battery.

    1.- Use stock rom 1.23
    2.- Change the recovery via SCATTER process and install TWRP ver 3.0 or higher
    3.- Once into TWRP root your phone with supersu. Reboot and update binaries if you used an old update.zip to install root.
    4.- Use titanium (or similar) to backup, freeze and DELETE OTA Updates. You can freeze it but it will be unfreezed after first reboot. You can backup and delete with no problem, then restore when you want to use again. Note that yes, it is a system app
    5.- In settings, disable all led notifications.

    At this point, like other people, you will only have wakelocks when low battery or charging. To resolve this wakelock the only fix its to reset the device. Then the fix I found :)

    6.- Install xposed v85 for arm64 via TWRP (xposed-v85-sdk22-arm64.zip). Also you have to install the apk to be able to use Xposed once you phone has booted. XposedInstaller_3.0_alpha4.apk . Both downloads in Xposed thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3034811
    7.- Wait for the first reboot, it takes some time.
    8.- Enter in xposed and download GravityBox [LP] v5.4.3 or higher
    9.- Enable the module in xposed and reboot

    Now, we are just only one step to fully disable al leds notifications :)

    In gravity box>Power Tweaks:
    - Low battery Warning (off)
    - Disable LED Flashing (ticked)
    - Battery Charging LED (disabled)

    Reboot and... TADAAAAA!!!!! :)

    Now, you can also take advantages of other gravity box enhancements and xposed modules.

    I hope this could be useful for other people. My wakelocks are 0% for led, OTA updates or other unknown sources
