Does your script work on Linux fedor? Or is it only for windows? I was thinking of trying again on other computers.
.

Here you have script for Linux

Download your Rom, rename it to GSI.img and drag it in to the Install Android folder.
Open the folder and right-click and select Terminal from the menu.
You must open the terminal inside this folder.

After opening a terminal window in the folder, drag the Install Android script to the terminal window and press Enter

Now connect the USB cable to your phone. Sit back and relax. The script will install android on your phone, root and install TWRP. The phone will automatically boot when everything is finished.

OEM unlocking was activated. I tried the terminal but it said no permissions. So I did all your commands with sudo mode. Everything went fine but once I tried to flash GSI.img I got this:

sudo fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash system GSI.img
Invalid sparse file format at header magic

Anyway I officially give up. Didn't work on windows and neither on Linux.

I down't know which IMG strainer you are trying to flash. but it is not compatible with your Boot-loader drivers. most often you get this message because you haven't extracted the file inside. Like a zip, rar ore a tare file renamed to IMG.

Bootloader don't flash extended zipt files of ANY kind... just raw IMG files extensions..
Extract the contents before attempting to flash the file....

Please download and flash one of these ... so I can easier help you in the future:

If you want me to. I'l sit down and walk you through HOW to UNFU*ck your phone... !

Okay, the img file was my bad, I forgot to extract it. I did it properly this time, went through whole script by hand, each command worked flawlessly. However, once I was ending with reboot bootloader, the screen just turned on like this and nothing could happen afterwards. I can hear it make sound when I press the power button to lock/unlock screen but that's about it. : (

Not sure which ROM you are flashing, but it doesn't seem to be compatible with your phone.
Make sure the IMG file is a ARM64 Treble supported rom..

Android 11 has been discontinued for this phone by Oukitel.
It was an EU version available in the oukitel Download Center, but this link have been dead for a long vile.

Anyway, whether you have android 10 or 11 on your phone, it is exactly the same hardware in all these phones and should work to flash GSI ARM64 files on them. In other words, what works on 1 phone works on everyone.If problems occur for some, it is the individual flashing the GSI that does not understand the instructions ore following the correct flashing procedure.

Hello, I am very sorry for my stupidity : D Today I decided to try again on windows. This time I made sure to extract rom properly and used DotOS and GAAPS with your script. Everything worked perfectly and I now have DotOS. Thank you very much for your patience and guide.

P.S. Is there a better custom rom you'd recommend? Probably android 12 version would be best?

I have tested All available ROMs for this phone. And a lot comes down to preferences.
Personally, I like Corvus 3, this rum has a perfect balance between simplicity, only the most important apps for running Google services, and Corvus own mods and settings for the small nice details.

If you want a totally deGoogled phone instead, LeOS-S is the right way to go:

But if you are unsure. Download different rums and test yourself. There are many to choose from :)

LE OS sounds really great ungoogled. I just have some questions. Can I install it now when I am on custom rom or should I go back to oukitel factory rom first? Also can I turn off oem unlocking after I finish installation and re-lock bootloader? Or is that a big no no?

No need to go back. just download the rom, extract it, rename to GSI.img. swap out with the file in Android Installer folder. put your phone in Fastboot and run the install script again.
The install script will fix, format and reinstall the new GSI for you. And Yes, of course you can re-lock the bootloader. Just go back in to the settings and tick off oem unlocking.

    Ok.
    Some Features:
    TWRP is installed only after removing the stock recovery - /vendor/ect/recovery.img
    there is a ready-made vendor with encryption disabled and stock recovery removed. Flash via fastbootd
    After installation TWRP , do not forget to format the data using yes
    Later I will give links to the firmware and mod vendor. Be patient......

    Hi all... Until we get ROOT to this phone.

    I have been using WP5 Pro as my daily driver for 9 months now, and am super happy with it.
    However... After 3 months, the large 8000Ah battery didn't last as long as it should.
    So I opened it up in ADB :
    adb shell 'pm list packages -f' | sed -e 's/.*=//' | sort
    ore
    adb shell pm list packages
    and took a closer look at the pre installed crap on the phone. And I was shocked by all the unnecessary s*it i found. com.mediatek.atmwifimeta : Why is all my Wifi traffic logged and sent to a remote server !!!.

    To you who are interested in removing bloatware on your phone.
    I put together a list of crap you can delete without affecting your daily use of the phone.

    Just Copy & Paste in terminal and restart the phone.

    adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.ssui.chdmodel adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.companiondevicemanager adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.dynsystem adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.wallpaper.livepicker adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.tachyon adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.docs adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.googleassistant adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.wellbeing adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.youtube.music adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.elephanttek.faceunlock adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.emergency adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.nfc adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.elephanttek.faceunlock adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.adups.privacypolicy adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.backupconfirm adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.adups.fota adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.bips adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.cts.ctsshim adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.cts.priv.ctsshim adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.localtransport adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.partnerbrowsercustomizations.example adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.printspooler adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.sharedstoragebackup adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.wallpaperbackup adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.debug.loggerui adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.traceur adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.htmlviewer adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.restore adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.apps.restore adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.feedback adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.onetimeinitializer adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.gms.location.history adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.google.android.videos adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.mediatek.atmwifimeta adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.calllogbackup adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.ssui.setupwizard adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.ssui.sos

    You can Reinstall one or all apps again by putting:
    adb shell cmd package install-existing com.app name

    With USB Debugging enabled on your phone.....
    There is a lot to copy and paste, so I created a script that cleans your phone in 10 seconds from all this bloatware. Download it at the bottom of this post to your desktop, unzip it to your desktop, connect phone and double-click the Claning file.


    The default launcher on this phone is terrible. Here is a good alternative...
    Using Mod SMART LAUNCHER 5 PRO
    You can download it here: here.... here.... ore here..... just incase here too......

    SOLUTION: DISSAPPEARING NOTIFICATIONS AFTER APPS UPDATES THROUGH THE GOOGLE STORE


    I do not understand what was the reason to make such a ****ty software by Oukitel, but finally i found a way to fix this. It was so annoying, when You have to check if notifications settings are all right every few days.

    Quick tutorial:
    1. You need root privileges. Installing Magisk was described some many times that i will skip this part.
    2. You need list of packages names for the apps, where You want to keep notifications settings all the time. You can obtain it for example through the shell:
    adb shell "pm list packages|cut -f 2 -d ":""
    You can also use some 3rd party app manager, which shows installed package names or check it via Google store. It does not matter.
    3. Now it is time to pull & edit /data/system/ssui_notification file.
    This is content of my ssui_notification:
    {packageName='com.ssui.keyguard', mainSwitch=1, lockScreenSwitch=0, showDetailSwitch=0, handsupSwitch=0, cornerSwitch=2, userOptSwitch=1, listType=1, status=1, userOperated=0}
    {packageName='com.ssui.launcher3', mainSwitch=0, lockScreenSwitch=0, showDetailSwitch=0, handsupSwitch=0, cornerSwitch=2, userOptSwitch=1, listType=1, status=1, userOperated=0}
    {packageName='com.android.music', mainSwitch=1, lockScreenSwitch=0, showDetailSwitch=0, handsupSwitch=0, cornerSwitch=1, userOptSwitch=1, listType=1, status=1, userOperated=0}
    *
    *
    *
    {packageName='com.twitter.android', mainSwitch=1, lockScreenSwitch=0, showDetailSwitch=0, handsupSwitch=1, cornerSwitch=1, userOptSwitch=1, listType=1, status=1, userOperated=0}
    {packageName='com.android.email', mainSwitch=1, lockScreenSwitch=0, showDetailSwitch=0, handsupSwitch=1, cornerSwitch=1, userOptSwitch=1, listType=1, status=1, userOperated=0}
    {packageName='com.linkedin.android', mainSwitch=1, lockScreenSwitch=0, showDetailSwitch=0, handsupSwitch=1, cornerSwitch=1, userOptSwitch=1, listType=1, status=1, userOperated=0}

    All You have to do is copy one line for example:
    {packageName='com.facebook.orca', mainSwitch=1, lockScreenSwitch=0, showDetailSwitch=0, handsupSwitch=1, cornerSwitch=1, userOptSwitch=1, listType=1, status=1, userOperated=0}
    and past it on the bottom with changed package name:
    {packageName='YOUR.APP.PACKAGE.NAME', mainSwitch=1, lockScreenSwitch=0, showDetailSwitch=0, handsupSwitch=1, cornerSwitch=1, userOptSwitch=1, listType=1, status=1, userOperated=0}
    This is example for Signal messenger:
    {packageName='org.thoughtcrime.securesms', mainSwitch=1, lockScreenSwitch=0, showDetailSwitch=0, handsupSwitch=1, cornerSwitch=1, userOptSwitch=1, listType=1, status=1, userOperated=0}
    Repeat this for all apps with disappearing notifications and save the file.
    4. After that You have to overwrite stock ssui_notification with just modified file. If You can not do this because of permission denied error, try to first delete stock file and after that copy modified file to the /data/system. It works for me.
    5. Reboot your phone*
    * I do not know if it is necessary step, but i did it to make sure that it will work.

    Voila, your notifications should not disappear anymore after apps update. I have checked it on few apps and so far it works!

    Unfortunately, this is not the best solution and You have to repeat this procedure after installing new apps, but probably most of people do not install new apps very often. I think it will be not a problem to make easy script to add automatically every installed app to the ssui_notification file, but the best solution will be if we will find which exactly process is responsible for this and just kill it. Maybe somebody will find that.

    I hope that it will be helpful for the rest of frustrated Oukitel users ;) Good Luck!

    Ok.
    You need the latest stock firmware (v15) with unlocked bootloader. Install all drivers.
    To unlock bootloader you need to do this:
    1. In setting - About Phone - tap several times on Build number (developer options)
    2. In Satting - System - Developer options set OEM unlocking and USB debbuging.
    Reboot to bootloader -Vol UP+ Power and select fastboot (Vol Up- select, Vol Down -confirmation)
    In platform-tools ( I copyed cmd.exe to this folder)
    Code:
    fastboot flashing unlock
    Code:
    fastboot flashing unlock_critical
    (Every time you need confirm with Vol UP)
    !WARNING! All data will be lost.
    Reboot to system.
    Repeat steps 1 and 2.
    Then we install GSI (with TWRP or without).
    Boot.img must be from stock firmware.
    You must have vbmetaAndroidSC_mod.img and Havoc-OS-v3.12-20201230-Official-GApps-arm64-ab.img in platform-tool folder.
    Link for Havos 3.12 - https://sourceforge.net/projects/havoc-os/files/arm64-ab/ ( second with Gapps). Extract img from zip.
    Reboot to fastboot.
    In fastboot mode
    Code:
    fastboot --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmetaAndroidSC_mod.img
    Code:
    fastboot -w
    Reboot to fastbootd
    Code:
    fastboot reboot fastboot
    In fastbootd
    Code:
    fastboot erase system
    Code:
    fastboot delete-logical-partition product
    Code:
    fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash system Havoc-OS-v3.12-20201230-Official-GApps-arm64-ab.img
    Code:
    fastboot -w
    Return to normal fastboot
    Code:
    fastboot reboot bootloader
    In fastboot
    Code:
    fastboot erase userdata
    Code:
    fastboot reboot

    The system will boot in a few minutes
    But your phone won't have a Googl Play certificate.
    To fix this problem I did this:
    Install Magisk-v23.0.apk (disabled Check Updates and in Update Chanel set Custom Channel)
    Reflash boot.img to magisk_patched_boot.img by @xmucio
    In fastboot
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot magisk_patched_boot.img
    Code:
    fastboot --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmetaAndroidSC_mod.img
    In Magisk set MagiskHide.
    From Magisk repository I installed Riru, BusyBox, MagiskHide Props Config and manualy SafetyNet Fix 2.1.1 (via Install from storage). Then I dissabled all Googl apps (Play market and so on).
    With help from MagiskHide Props Config I made a substitution of the phone and installed the certificate.
    In Termix I done this:
    Code:
    su
    Code:
    props
    You will seen like on picture.
    At first I done 2 (Forse BASIC key attestation)
    2
    d - (pick value from device list)
    3 - (Ulefone, becouse I have it)
    All confirmed.
    Then I done 1 (Edit device fingerprint
    1
    f
    3 - Ulefone
    Then enabled Google apps
    SafetyNet passed. The device is certified.

    OUKITEL IMEI recovery
    1,1.jpg
    Had trouble making calls after flashing the Oukitel firmware to the phone.
    and daild *#06# and discovered that I had lost my IMEI number, which is used to register my phone on the carrier network. Without an IMEI number, you can either call, text or surf the internet. So it's crucial that you restore that number. Here is a small guide on how to reset your IMEI number on ALL smart phones, As long as you have USB drivers for that specific phon.
    I will use Windows 10 in this example, as this is the most common operating system to date. If linux users want a guide too, send me a pm.
    Ok, that out of the way, let's begin....

    Drivers...
    Is the key component for your phone to communicate with a computer, and for communicating with the different chipsets in your phone.

    Oukitel uses Mediatek drivers and can be downloaded here..…
    Extract the folder to your desktop. You will need a copy of the OUKITEL firmware.

    Oukitel WP5 here... and Oukitel WP5 pro here...


    Right click on windows taskbar icon, and click on Device manager.

    1.png


    Click on Action and on Add legacy hardware.
    2.png


    Click on install ....
    3.png


    Click on Brows...
    5.png

    Go in to the Mediatek folder you downloaded earlier and double-click on the android driver.
    You can do this for one or all the drivers, and the drivers in the 64 folder to.
    Reboot the computer....

    Now it's time to fix the missing IMEI number issue....
    To make this job as easy as possible for us, we will use the SN Write Tool.
    There are a lot of versions and editions of this tool for different phones, but for WP5 and WP5 pro we use v1-1924 which can be downloaded here ....
    Ok, let's begin....

    Open the SN_Write_Tool_v1.2020.00 folder and open the SN_Writ program.
    6.png


    Click on System Config.
    0Ww25wWsuT.png


    Onely IMEI and Dule IMEI is checkt.
    Now we need to tell the program to retrieve all the necessary information about your phone from the firmware databases. Now click on the MD1_DB button, and go in to the download OUKITEL firmware folder and in to the database folder.

    7.png

    8.png


    Double click on the MDDB file. Go to the next button AP_DB and add the next database file APDB file. Click the SAVE button.
    9.png


    Now we are ready to write the IMEI number to the phone. Click on the STRT button.
    Now enter your IMEI number. If you have not written it down, you can find it on the packaging the phone came with. Turn off your phone and prepare the USB-c cable.
    11.png


    Ckick OK button , and plug the USB cable into the computer and phone and wait a few seconds. A small text is displayed on the phone screen at the bottom left.
    12.jpg


    The program will verify with the database, before writing the IMEI number to the phone, This may take up to 1 min. If the program finds errors in your IMEI number, you will receive an error message. you can check your number or click OK.
    13.png


    When everything is ready, you will get a green light from the program.
    14.png


    Restart the phone and you now have a new IMEI numbers.....
