I just did some digging around on Google and I didn't see any development information regarding that handset. The trouble with the low-end phones/legacy devices/no-name brands is they don't see the mainstream and most developers don't even notice or care that they are there.

I've been doing some research to buy one of these cheap dual core dual sim phones. This has an MT6577 chipset and if I'm not mistaken there are quite a number of MT6577 phones which have been rooted. So I would imagine that this can be rooted, its just that there isn't any great interest surrounding it yet.

This may be a begining. Do you know any ICS dual sim MT6577 that have been successfully rooted?

And here's a general thread:

Also I know there are a few shops (such as etotalk), which root MT6577 phones. There's probably a few more threads around if you dig around a bit more.

    Yeah, Beats Audio driver is what bricked my phone. Please let me know what version of CWM you used when you get back.
    Have a safe trip. Thanks again.

    I'm back from my weekend trip. So here's the deal. This is the recovery image, this is not a generic CMW, I had to create it for this phone, my phone is a 910a, so I don't know if this will work on 910i

    Code:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?e2mghpwdg0wmmj5

    password for the rar file is:
    Code:
    williegomeztforxda

    You will need Mediatek Smartphone Fash Tool

    Code:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?qwf1452te1s3lxs

    You need to extract the Smartphone Flash tool on your hard drive. on the extract folder you will see a Driver folder, run the InstallDriver.exe and install drivers, the you need to open the Flash_tool.exe file

    On the main screen, you will have to click on "Scattter-loading" file that you extract from my .rar file (MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt)

    You will then have to check the RECOVERY box, if in locations there is no file, double click on RECOvery and you will be asked for a file, you have to select the recovery.img file extracted from my file. With the phone disconnected from the PC, you click on the DOWNLOAD button, you will get a warning windows that says "not ALL images are correctly loaded, which may cause boot up issue! Do you still want to go on downloading anyway?" you click on YES.

    NOW you connect the Vivo 910a WITHOUT BATTERY, just the phone, your computer will recognize the phone and you will see a bar at the bottom of the program, wait until you get the DOWNLOAD OK window.

    Now you have to disconnect from the PC, put the battery on the phone and press VOL UP+POWER button and you will boot into CMW.

    Now, since my phone is soft bricked, We need someone with a 910a to install CMW and create a Full backup and upload it so we could restore our phones.

    Thanks

    To access Engineering mode on Blu Vivo, just install this tool
    MobibeUncleTolls.apk

    be VERY careful on what you change on your phone

    Have checked the thread but cannot find any reference to this error.....Perhaps someone would be kind enough to help.
    Have run through the installation of CWM as per this thread and everything works as suggested until the point where the RED bar stops..... Then error message comes up.
    (Vivo is rooted successfully)

    ERROR:: "DOWNLOAD_ALL_FAIL" "Need Download all images"

    The byte count stops at 117.70 KBps

    Would be very grateful for some assistance.:confused:

    With telefhone with ROOT! ----> :good:

    A quick tip:
    - Place the recovery.img (creator williegomezt) on your sdcard
    - Install MobibeUncleTolls.apk and select the options / select (press) "Recovery Update"
    recovery.img should be being seen
    - Tighten the recovery.img and a message asking you to give update
    Select OK
    - After that, a message prompts you reboot
    Select OK.

    Ready, CWM v6.0.1.2 is installed.:laugh:

    * not necessary to use SP Flash Tool for this.

    Low mic volume

    I found major hardware problem in my phone. Between the mic and the plastic body inside the phone there is a protective rubber piece. The hole on that rubber piece is on a OPPOSITE side to the mic hole. Once I remove it, people start to here me perfect. But you need to use screwdriver and tweezers in order to do that. I can post the pictures of how to do that if somebody need it.

    Could someone provide the link D910a?

    Thank you for the info. Would you be so kind and help me to find the proper flashable software with which I could replace the bands?

    (I've tried to flash in CWM a backup of a d910i device and I installed it successfully, but still couldn't use the 2100 Mhz band.)

    Thanks again,

    Tibor

    Flash this under CMW and use it to switch bands
