In this thread you will find my custom ROM And Recovery for the Wiko DarkMoon
Please be sure to read (and re-read) this carefully in order to avoid unnecessary questions.




Instructions and Frequently asked questions (FAQ):

For Instructions jump into post #2.
FAQ jump into post #3.
Wiko DarkMoon internal memory re-partition, jump into post #4.
How to Revert to the STOCK Rom / Recovery / Partition Layout, jump into post #4.






Recovery INFO

The salient features of Carliv Touch Recovery include:

  • Based on CWM 6.0.4.4
  • Full Touch Support
  • With features of Cannibal Open Touch
  • Aroma File Manager Support
  • Support for both Edify and Amend scripting allows flashing all ROMs
  • Touch screen button controls
  • Advanced Backup
  • Advanced Restore
  • Delete old backups
  • Persistent settings
  • User-defined backup locations
  • ADB Sideload


Update CTR v2.5 (30/07/2014)

Changelogs:
  • New Menu Layout
  • Tar + Gzip Backup Compression : ( "Backup/Restore" -> "Default Backup Format" )
  • Your Backups will be smaller now, just like on the old native CWM
  • Removed "wipe all" option from wipe menu ( if you need to wipe system, use "format system" from "mounts/storage")
  • Rearanged menu order in root menu to restore CWM order
  • There's now an "nvram backup/restore" menu in "carliv" section
  • The nvram partition will be backed up in clockworkmod/backup folder as nvram.img. This will help if you lose IMEI and other communication features. It will work only if you have the nvram partition of size 0x500000 (check your scatter) and if you have the nvram defined as /dev/nvram path in recovery.fstab. If the nvram partition is damaged (as in flashing an oversized recovery) this will not help you, and you need SPFlashTools to reflash with format your phone official firmware, and after that flash this recovery, boot in recovery and restore nvram.
  • some other small changes.

F.A.Q

Q: How Can i acess The MTK Eng Mode?
A: GravityBox >Engineering Mode


Q: What Mods can i do on the Eng.Mode?
A: There are alot of things you can do, the two most common are:

Increasing volume Level:
MTK Menu> Hardware Testing> Audio> On the "headset mode" and "LoundSpeaker Mode" set max values to 145 (The max is 160, but i dont advise it, stay safe and use the 145 value)

Speed up the GPS reception :

(Before Going to the MTK Menu)
  • Open the app "FasterGPS", and give it root permissions
    Choose your Continent, your region (at this point, your gps is properly configured with your country *.ntp values)
(Now on MTK Menu ...)
  • MTK Menu> Location> Location Based Service> On the "AGPS" tab, tick the "Enable A-GPS", and on the "EPO" tab, tick "Enable EPO" and "Auto Download" , this last option will download the EPO files it requires an data connection.

  • Start the app "GPS Status", in the first Satts Lock, you need to wait a little bit (it can take up to 15m, be sure you are in an Open Area).
    When you get an good lock, on Satts, your DONE.

A: I dont see the Development Options, how can i acess it?
Q: Unlocking the Development Options:

  • Go to "Settings" > "About Phone"
  • Then tap 7 times on the "Build Number"

Q: Where are the Development Options?
A: Settings> Developer Options

Q: What is the Performance Control?
A: Its an Control Panel, where you can Change / managed the CPU Governors/ IO Shedulers / among several other things.

Q: The Launcher sometimes seems an bit laggy
A: Go to Settings> Developer Options> on "Window animation scale" set it to .5x, and on "Transition animation scale" set it to .5x


Q: I really like your work, how can i thank you?
A: You can press the "THANKS" button, and if you want, you can donate some beers to me ;)

Hi

You guys are all crazy with the MTK leaked sources, but do you even have an clue what those sources are?

You cant just compile an source that's customize for other phone , thinking it will work on yours.
There's a lot of work to be done, and you need an huge amount of luck to have your phone drivers available in that source.


This said, I will appreciate that people avoid off-topic and other phones talk in this thread.

This ROM and recovery will only work on wiko darkmoon and Micromax a200 (clone).

If your using this ROM as a base for another MT6582 phone, please be an gentlemen and give proper credits.

Regards

Slovenian...most android phones have it. Moto G had the same "problem"
Hi

Yes i know, when i made a MIUI rom for my old ZTE v970, i had an hard time trying to find the proper strings for your language.
Even on stock roms from big brands, its very rare to find support for that language.

Im trying to merge and revise some strings from various sources, maybe in an future version.

Great, that would be awsome.

As for rarity of my language, I find it quite well supported. Google Nexus has it, all Samsungs have it, so does HTC, Sony... I know Prestigio and Gsmart have it. CM also. It's not a big deal, but nevertheless - I wouldn't mind having it :)

Great ROM btw, very customizable.

Hi

Well good news and bad news :)

The good:

I managed to Build an UNOFFICIAL Lewa Rom for our device, currently fixing the lastest issues and adding multi-language support.
So since im currently working on this language strings, might as well use that work for this rom also.

Preview pics:








The bad:
From what i gather until now, only about 100 slovenian strings are compatible (this is less than 5% of overall translation files), will keep looking ;)
