Hi,
Sorry I couldn't read all the topic but... What is possible to do with a global version of the device ? I want a custom rom on it.
If I have to own a chinese version, can I just flash the chinese OS and firmware on my global one to start from there ?
Thanks

Looks like this is a derelict thread, sadly. I was hoping to follow up hints of LineageOS on this phone and find a way to revitalize it, as I've just inherited one. But everything I find is from 2017 and involves rooting - which I assume result in non-working Android Pay, and I use that quite a lot, so I guess this'll go up for sale.

Damn fine hardware, ****ty OS support. Never again buying an Oppo!

Me too, actually. I fixed my old phone that I lent to my sister (who cracked it and rendered the screen, rendering it unusable).
Looks like there's a lot of messing around. I guess that's what you get with a closed system like ColorOS. :(

How unfortunate. I wanted to pour some new life into the phone, too...

OK you have to flash the F3 Apple F3 and that will bring it back to life and then you can go back in Flash the original firmware

Right very sorry to be so vague. Do you have to flash the Oppo F3 firmware! It will bring your phone back to life. It is in these forms for this phone the same thing you do for the R9S you can do to the R9S plus

Yes you can. You have to refresh the phone to bring it back to life, then Flash the actual software for your oppo phone. Then you’ll have to reroot, Then/what you like onto it

Do you mean to flash the "official" firmware of OPPO F3 on my OPPO R9s?
Next brush Oppo firmware cph1611.
Flash official firmware of chp1611 on my chp1607?
But I have flashed Lineage OS on my OPPO R9s (chp1607 Taiwan edition) now, and it has already root.

The difficulty I'm having now is
because the ligean os I flashed is based on the oppo r9s china edition, but I flash it on my Taiwan edition, so his sim card doesn't work now.
Can't make phone calls or surf the internet.The phone can detects the sim card,but it can't do anything.

If I flash it back to the official factory firmware, then the sim card can works.
But I just don't like the official color os, so I want to flash it to CM14.

Extract the persist.Img and modem and vendor.img. Flash them. Or return to original firmware, take a look at your cm 14 firmware and take out the vendor.img and replace with stock vendor, modem,and presit. Img

    I have tried the page you posted but still unable to root. Seems like the phone is too new for now. My advice if you like your phone to be rooted., don't get the OPPO R9S or plus when it comes out. Color OS 3.0 doesn't let you choose the default launcher even though you install other launcher. No notification badge for whatsapp and facebook as such. Though you changed the system language to English but some setting or apps would still display chinese. Its my bad that I didn't did a background check on OPPO OS and went to purchase it. Now I am stuck with a this phone.

    TBH, I don't think that the Oppo R9S will receive any love from any dev with the way Oppo changed its direction in beginning of 2016.

    1. They stopped releasing kernel sources and are in violation of GPL.
    2. They removed fastboot binarys from all of their phones and firmwares since the beginning of 2016.
    And closed down any possibility of getting an custom recovery flashed to gain root.
    3. Community support management in their official support forum is non-existent.
    4. They barely do any updates to the firmware.
    5. Their Lollipop released phones from end of 2015 are still on Lollipop. While all other OEM's have pushed Marshmallow/Nougat for their 2015 devices (see ASUS).
    6. Their strategy is selling the phones and if the customer wants an Android upgrade you have to buy another newer Oppo phone from them which is based on a new Android build.
    7. I could go on and on...

    in short stay of from that OEM if you want freedom on your phone or want any type of dev support.

    Can you see if he can do the same for the R9s Plus?

    That Wu Xian Lin guy has done pretty much every Oppo phone ever, eventually, so I'm sure the R9S Plus will be forthcoming.

    Going to go try this now. Will see if I can simplify or automate the process. No promises though.

    Some Genius

    Mega good news! Maybe. I found this yesterday doing some searches explicitly looking for Chinese (I think) results: https://pan.baidu.com/s/1qXVAbDy

    This person seems to have it all figured out. There's even a TWRP for our device in their folders as well as a CM 13 ROM.

    QUICK WALK THROUGH:

    Files needed: https://pan.baidu.com/s/1qXVAbDy
    (you'll have to create a Baidu account)

    Steps:
    1) Download the folder called Root&TWRP
    2) Download this version of our rom: R9s_11_OTA_005_all_201611050005_local and install it
    3) Download their TWRP (r9s-twrp-3.0.2.0-20170107) and change the name to "twrp"
    4) Download their lineage-13.0-20170113-UNOFFICIAL-r9s from a folder called (Chinese characters)ROM
    4) Copy twrp and the CM rom to your phone (copy twrp to the INTERNAL SDCARD, not into a separate folder)
    5) Look at the screenshots they provided in the Root&TWRP folder
    6) Open up the .txt file in the folder called: 利用dirtycow漏洞root-R9s
    7) Follow the English ADB instructions referencing their screenshots as you go
    8) Once you're in TWRP, back up your OS in case something goes wrong
    9) Do a full wipe (not format data), ie, system, data, android secure, cache
    10) Install the CM rom (optionally install xposed, gapps, viper from BioHazard).
    11) Wipe dalvik cache (not sure if it's necessary but I did it) and reboot.

    Notes:
    -I've done everything listed above and can verify that it works. I have TWRP and CM 13 with Viper and Xposed on my phone.
    -so far I haven't been able to mount the internal SD card in TWRP. Haven't tried with an external.
    -everything seems to work in CM, though I haven't been able to copy the TWRP folder that I backed up ColorOS in to my computer's hard drive.

    Once again, all credit goes to the genius with the Baidu account that I've referenced.

    Oppo r9s Root Links

    Ok, so I couldn't figure out how to contact Wu Lin from Baidu. This is all his work and I take zero credit (just got lucky):

    Link to Oppo r9s Stock Rom: https://mega.nz/#!RQwCGTAK!6YiRz-K34QwwQepJjNoEeg67y0J2XulAdH_CldiCPQg

    Also, my notes from a page back on what I did to get TWRP, ROOT, and CM 13 on our Opp0 r9s:
    Steps:
    1) Download the folder called Root&TWRP
    2) Download this version of our rom: R9s_11_OTA_005_all_201611050005_local and install it
    3) Download their TWRP (r9s-twrp-3.0.2.0-20170107) and change the name to "twrp"
    4) Download their lineage-13.0-20170113-UNOFFICIAL-r9s from a folder called (Chinese characters)ROM
    4) Copy twrp and the CM rom to your phone
    5) Look at the screenshots they provided in the Root&TWRP folder
    6) Open up the .txt file in the folder called: ??dirtycow??root-R9s
    7) Follow the English ADB instructions referencing their screenshots as you go
    8) Once you're in TWRP, back up your OS in case something goes wrong
    9) Do a full wipe (not format data), ie, system, data, android secure, cache
    10) Install the CM rom (optionally install xposed, gapps, viper from BioHazard).
    11) Wipe dalvik cache (not sure if it's necessary but I did it) and reboot.
