Hello,

The kernel isn't official, IUNI and Gionee categorically refused to release sources. I apologize for the false joy.

However... Some Gionee's phones are re-branded, and among them, some have agreed to release sources like General Mobile (thanks to burakgon, feroxxx, and all others who worked on it) and BLU with the model Life Pure XL. This models are a rebranded Gionee Elife E7. On those kernels some drivers and others are missing.

The kernel on the GitHub is a fork of the work of feroxx, with some elements of the BLU sources like the camera drivers, and others from official constructors like synaptics for the touchscreen drivers for example.

Dtsi files was made thanks to the tutorial of ketut.kumajaya with meld to compare and reconstruct files one by one. Actually DTSIs aren't perfectly like the original, it's not finished, but the compiled dt.img works on an original recovery. It's a good signs.
Many specifics dtsi files was constructed like the 2k Sharp and Truly screen or LG battery...

Currently the work must be concentrated especially at the kernel image. It boots with TWRP 3.x based on OmniRom 5.1, the mtp and adb works but the screen is black. So it's possible to do a dmesg, here is the log in attachment .

We are two on the project, alecuba16 and I. We have only a few time of investment on it unfortunately. :'(

So if anyone wishing to help is very welcome ! :)
Is there any meaning to you or searching on that site:

btw
What is Codename for Iuni U3?
Example, Xiaomi Mi2/s, codename is Aries.
thx

No whetstone problem for the 6.4.27 release? I have seen that the 6.4.10 version had the problem and users need to flash the zip file.

No, no need to apply the fix for the whetstone problem.
The gmail app doesn't work with this rom on my phone, it blocks after I select and try to open an email.

Hi, I build a rom few days ago for this device based on IUNI-U3-V3.0-201511271608 official.

Main features:
- 100% Based on the latest official stock fully operational.
- All apps and framework deodexed.
- Removed system applications and Chinese do not consider essential.
- Minimum gapps already integrated.
- English Language and European time zone set from the beginning.
- Root SuperSU added.
- Added Vega Music app too.
- Replaced the original keyboard by Google keyboard.
- Script from alecuba16 and other settings to optimize battery consumption (verify that it works init.d)
- App Any Cut integrated, to use the FM Radio (taking the shortcut).
- App to restart in recovery / fastboot directly (Power button) mode.
- Utility to lock the screen with a press (Lock).
- Speaker and headphones volumes uploaded.
- Changed emoji emoticons by more colorful.
- Gmail app 100% compatible.

Other considerations:
- The app Updater is not eliminated, it notifies you of new updates. If you want to keep the rom, decline.
- ART mode 100% functional.
- Use a tool to check that the init.d scripts are running.
- I tried several recoverys and recommend TWRP 2.8.3.0.
- To listen to music by headphones, turn off the DTS recommend.

ROM: UNI_U3_Nuvolari_v1.zip (774MB)
RECOVERY RECOMMENDED: IUINI_U3_recovery TWRP_2.8.3.0.zip (14MB)

Got bricked??

Hi, i installed the recoba version rom, and worked properly, but i decided to give a try to the latest official version of iuni os, and downloaded via ota, i had my phone with the battery charging (70%) and selected the Reboot Now option after the installation, but never boot again, not even the light notification of charging battery, disconnected from the a/c cable, and tried to turn it on with the power button, but nothing..
Connected to the pc and Format flash unit (all flash units f,g,h,i,etc) windows poped up... that's all... can't go to fastboot mode, nothing..
Does it has any solution?? :( :confused:

EDIT: NEVERMIND IT FINALLY REBOOT BY ITSELF hehehe... *phew*

If it happens again(black screen), first you can do is to hold all 3 buttons together (2 volumes + power) till phone boots.

Nuvolari rom v1

Great rom, but found some bugs: 1) delay in message push, 2) uninstalling apps shows uninstaller forced closes. 3) 2nd sim is not working, it detects both sims but does not connect with them. 4) some apps aren't available on the play store.
Certainly the important one is the 1) however thanks for sharing!!

Thanks for try:
1)Check that autostart in app manager is enabled in that apps.
2) Is lack of some apk removed, I think, irrelevant anyway.
3) I can make calls with 2nd sim, data is 2G so not very useful.
4) Any example? I I found all I usually use.

    Maybe not as smooth as latest MIUI but man, battery lasts much much longer.

    For gapps, root using towelroot and remove 2 videos from system folder. (Don't remember where exactly), then flash Pico gapps for android 4.4 (works with stock recovery) :)
    Whatsapp workaround works, for notifications prermitt auto start :)

    [Desktop] to optimize the system over animation, sound Desktop fluency;

    Guys? Any progress? It sounded almost complete, now nothing is happening.
    pleeeeease make it :)
    Lineage 14.1 ril and mobile data fixed. Both sim cards and internet now works. Sound and camera on the roadmap. Very small time for development, sorry.

    Ok guys here are some different roms you can flash on your U3. They should be Chinese/English only, but normally on Miui roms you can use MoreLocale to translate 70 percent of the rom. I have added Dolby Atmos and Nubia Camera apps too.

    Problem is there's not enough space left on the system partition to flash gapps on the latest IUNI OS v3 beta :(
    The IUNI V3.0 ROM I shared on Google Drive is the latest production version not beta, it is better than Beta 3.06 because WhatsApp is working and it is the latest basband/firmware.

    For the problem of the insufficient disk space, I have a solution:

    There is a folder in most of official ROMs that you can remove safely (/system/sdcard), it contains the promotion videos and songs for IUNI U3. They are copoied to emulated storage during rom installation so they are not needed anymore because they are already there.
    Delete this folder (need Root Access and file manager like Root Explorer) then there will not be space problem again (it is 250MB). Install The latest GAPPS by TKruzze, use mini/micro/pico no problem. I used pa_gapps-modular-pico-4.4.4-20150308-signed.zip and works perfectly. Here are new download page after TKruzze closed the thread:
