The doogee x5 pro has the same specs as the homtom ht7 pro (at least on paper), and it has android 6.0 as an official update (so much for being incompatible as stated by homtom).
Some adventurous folks (or somebody with more experience at android hacking than me and who knows how to recover from mistakes) willing to try if the rom works?

I've started using this phone for navigation and I find the gps very bad: the fix is almost instantaneous, it sees and uses a good amount of satellites and the reported precision is good (3-4 meters) but the position continuously jumps around so it often thinks I'm in a different street and causes a (wrong) route recalculation.
The various tutorials I find for mtk chipsets are only for the problem of not finding satellites or a slow fix, but this isn't the case here so they are useless.

Edit: searching the thread I saw at least one other report of a faulty gps while for many other it works fine. The reported problem (slowness of the gps) however seems different than mine (position jumping around).

I suspect it's a software and not a hardware issue (as I said the fix is almost instantaneous and it sees around 12 satellites using between 6 and 11), which firmware are you using?
I just took a stroll (on foot) around town turning off high precision mode (i.e. I set location services to "gps only") and it seems to be tracking the location much better, however I have to try it in the car with this mode.

Close but no cigar. The position isn't so jumpy but waze still got confused. And that's while gps test showed a precision of 3 meters.....

Hello @all!

I flashed HT 7 pro xp-version with "GF20_HT7Pro_V1.2.3_user_20160606-17_15_36".
Now it does not start or even load the battery.
I think it has been flashed the wrong preloader.
Sp-Flash-Tool shows "Error: S_FT_Enable_Dram_fail (0xFC0)

Tried to find V1.0.1 or lower but can not find the versions.
Can anybody help please?

All the best for 2017!

You flashed the wrong rom for your phone. Search at the 4pda forum for your new version phone. I dont use v1.2.3 because my phone is HT7Pro xp.vp.1.0.4 , hope you can find the rom that you are looking for. Good luck!

Hello fadzlan kun,

thanks for your reply.
Since i did not find any Rom that fits, could you please give a link to the version you are using?
And it would be great if you could attach the preloader of your rom-version or upload the full rom?

Well you are welcome :)
To be honest, i'm still searching for it and i'm sorry that I cant help you. At the needrom, they only provide TWRP for xp and non-xp (i cant flash the TWRP into this phone) It keep giving me error. Goodluck in searching for the TWRP , and if you managed to find it tell me quickly ;) :)

Hello,

with the attached scatterfiles it will be no error.
I flashed this recovery from NR: https://yadi.sk/d/uT65v7Ilvgw6d
I also activated OEM-Unlocking in Developer-Options.

But Bootloader seems to be locked, because stock-recovery is there again, when phone is restartet....

I could root it with Kingo-Root.

Okay thanks I will try it :)
Do you mean you cannot boot into the twrp? Can we just replace the recovery file when we flashing the rom? Just my opinion :cool:

When you boot TWRP for the first time you must select yes to allow for modifications for TWRP to stick....

Do not mislead others if you do not know.
HT 7 PRO bootloader WAS NOT LOCKED. So probably it is not.
Just use TWRP recovery.
You have to enter TWRP 1st time you start the phone after flashing.
Follow the procedure described in OP.

==hit thank you

@jan177:
That´s why i wrote "seems".
I am misleading nobody.

And i can not "just use" TWRP because it does not start. After flashing and boot in recovery it vibrates for a short time and then boots in system.
So there is no chance to let TWRP do its modifications.
After restart the stock-recovery is back.

It is not the first time for me to install a TWRP.

So if you have some experience and it "seems"to you that in your handset the bootloader is locked than you should know what to do to check if it is really the locked:)
Otherwise others might think it is real and follow your suspicion for nothing.
If anyone reads the thread from the OP till here it is clear than there is NO mention of necessity of unlocking the bootloader.

In units HT 7 PRO I had in my hands it was NOT the case.
so you have a different problem.

    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
