Thanks for your update.
The ROM worked is good for you.

Just do some further tests like:
Battery drain
Network issue
Wi-fi
Bluetooth

Confirm its smooth working

Yea Everything Works... its stock rom only from mobiistar of the same thing rebranded... just that root has been added... Maybe U can collect rom link and cwm n drivers from the vietnami forum n compile an easier way for others joining us:D maybe some link2sd stuff needs a bit of explaination too:p.. Roms is all Good n root works:D

Read the procedure shown in post 2 carefully
you need to flash this file, it cannot be installed.If you don't know how to do this procedure,i advice you not to do,as you might end up bricking your handset if something done wrong. Do only if your confident enough

Button Remapper Mod (For centre Button)

This is for A7 only

Root Required:

Step 1: Download http://www.mediafire.com/?948zkh88syo59do

Step 2: Open up, find the search key, click on the window,it will appear with two parameters:
ACTION: The function you want, default is SEARCH, where you select POWER
STATE: If you want keys work even when the screen is off (machine locked), then select WAKE_DROPPED, because I choose POWER, the POWER to work even when locked, so I choose WAKE_DROPPED, if you select the home key such, should be to NONE, if not the press will turn off the screen (in theory, have not tried the HOME key)

Step 3: Reboot

Glad I could help

It is the system launcher (default lacher error) i suppose
Try a different launcher
- Launcher Pro
- ADW Launcer EX
etc

these are better than stock
