The baseband is unknown and the sim cards doesn't works either
Sim cards can't work without baseband.

Please try flashing wiko stock rom, with 'firmware upgrade' mode in sp flashtool.
Just replace the preloader of the wiko stock rom, with the preloader of your stock rom.

Then boot up and check if baseband and your imei number are fine. If they are, you can update to madOS again.

I need help with my Micromax canvas 5 E481.
I can't get the baseband working. I already tried pushing the baseband to /vendor folder but it doesn't work. And by the way I followed all the instructions to flash the rom

Hi, I just installed madOS on my wiko fever. There was a strange situation after first boot:
Inside settings with each chosen option (screen, info, sound etc) there was some noise from the speaker similar to sea waves. Also IMEI was not OK for both sim cards.
For me it was not a problem cause before loading madOS I backed up my whole original rom with nvram etc.
But when I entered to TWRP once more and reloaded to the system( without any additional actions / restoring the files) strange noise disappeared and proper imei was restored.

Is it possible to restore original functions of camera? lack of picture in picture and videos in fullhd will be a very painfull.

PS: I have problems with root - on superSU i receive boot image patcher ... decompressing ramdisk failure, aborting. What to do to fix this?

I can only respond to the superSU question.
The supersu installer is not compatibale with the compression used with this boot.img , so can use a modified boot.img (other compression) or use Magisk to root. And as noted in the OP. his suggestion is to use majisk anyway.

I finally succeeded in installing this on BLU Life One X. For others who wants to do the same thing, here is what I did: https://forum.xda-developers.com/general/general/how-installed-mados-oreo-8-1-blu-life-t3802502

I would expected it would be an alpha or beta quality (even that would be better than the outdated, spyware-ridden BLU stock rom), but it worked very well. It feels as if I bought a new device. Seeing how this hardware perfectly run Android 8.1 and apps, it is sad that many people are likely throwing this phone away because it never gets software updates from the manufacturer.

I hope there would be updates to the mad OS from time to time...

OK thanks. Magisk and root working.

after testing the rom
+ very fast
+ good cpu governor
+ battery...

- sometimes is loosing the internet connection.
- only battery thermal sensor can be checked
- lack of live mixing front and rear camera video/picture like in original Fever software
- only 720p video

Yeah, the baseband is "Unknown", and the phone does not recognise the SIM card. I have tried searching for a solution, but I could not find one. So, just to be sure, currently there is no way to get the SIM working on BLU Life One X with this ROM, is there?

It is not that I desperately need to get cellular working on this phone, but if there is an easy way to fix, why not, I would fix it. By the way, I have used this ROM for days, and it is very usable.

Guide on installing MadOS on Blu on Page 9 of this forum. There are also other revised guides for this floating around, look around a bit.

I tried from the start again, and I succeeded in making the baseband be recognised in the Fever Marshmallow V34, but there were lots of "not booting" issues after flashing the "modem fix" zip or flashing the madOS, so I overwrote some partitions like system or user data, etc (I do not exactly remember), and when I finally booted up to madOS, the baseband was unknown, again. Well, it took me hours and I got nothing.

I guess I will just use it as a Wi-Fi only device, until someone smarter than I posts here a foolproof flashable BLU Life One X baseband fixer for madOS.

Thanks for this write up! I have MadOS installed successfully on my Blu Life One X using the installed guide. I installed from stock MM up to this with little to no issues. Performance is better than on the stock rom for sure! Used Pico Gapps for lightweight install.

The only thing I cannot get to work that well is the Google Assistant. Any ideas?

Google assistant needs the bigger gapps package. Pico is missing required libs

    First time Install Instructions

    0) Preparation

    0.1) Backup your important data to PC

    0.2) Ensure you are running Wiko Fever Android 6 already (also/especially when your device is not wiko fever, but a clone). If you are not, please update to it, before continuing here (replace the preloader from the wiko rom with your stock one, then use 'firmware upgrade' mode in sp flashtool. NEVER use 'format all + download')

    Extra steps, if you are on blu life one x:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=76003104&postcount=81

    0.3) Download “twrp_wiko_fever_oreo.img“: [url]http://www.mediafire.com/file/e96x8ltlyka392e/twrp_wiko_fever_oreo.img[/URL]

    0.4) Download “madOS_8.1.0_fever_2018xxyy.zip“ [url]https://www.facebook.com/MediatekAndroidDevelopers/[/URL]

    0.5) Optional, Download “Google Apps (aka Gapps)“: [url]http://opengapps.org/[/URL]. Choose: “ARM64“, “Android 8.1“, “nano“ or “pico“ package


    1) Unlock bootloader (if not done already):

    1.1) Boot for first time your device. I recommend to NOT register/login/add Wifi/add accounts/etc., because the unlock process DELETES all your data in the device. So to go more fast, skip all, and go directly to SETTINGS. In section ABOUT DEVICE, enable the developer options with eight time picks over “Build number”. Then in SETTINGS/DEVELOPER OPTIONS, enable the option “OEM unlocking” and “USB debugging” (if not enabled already), and choose to alollow usb debugging in the popping up window.

    1.2) Boot the device in the BOOTLOADER mode (using ADB: "adb reboot-bootloader"). Execute in your computer the command “fastboot oem unlock”, say YES with “vol+” and “power” buttons. Then select reboot. This ERASES completely your device (factory restore), but the bootloader will be UNLOCKED! Two reboots needed.


    2) Flash the recovery and boot to it. (choose option a) if you don't have another TWRP already installed, else choose b))

    2.1a) Boot in the BOOTLOADER mode (using ADB: "adb reboot-bootloader").
    Then execute command “fastboot flash boot twrp_wiko_fever_oreo.img”;
    and then “fastboot reboot” (this is a trick to directly bring you to the newly flashed recovery. You can't boot up your current/stock rom at this point anymore).

    2.1b) Boot to your current TWRP. Choose install --> image, and select “twrp_wiko_fever_oreo.img“. Then choose “recovery“ as the target. After few seconds, and succesful installation, hit “back“ several times, then go to “reboot --> recovery“


    3) Install

    3.0) Optional, but recommended: Go to "Wipe --> Advanced Wipe", click "Cache" and then "Repair or Change File system". Then select "Change File system" and choose "F2FS". Swipe to confirm.
    Hit "back" three times (you can again choose a partition to change now). Choose "Data" and do as above.
    Hit "back" several times, to get back to the main menu. Choose "Reboot --> Recovery".

    3.1) While already in recovery (TWRP), connect your phone to pc, and copy “madOS_8.1.0_fever_2018xxyy.zip“ and the Google Apps to your phone.

    3.2) Go to "Wipe", and directly slide the slider to the right.

    3.3) Get back to main menu with the "back" button

    3.4) Go to "Install" and hit “madOS_8.1.0_fever_2018xxyy.zip“, then uncheck all boxes and hit "Add more zips", now choose the Google Apps.
    Confirm installation by swiping the slider to the right.

    3.5) Reboot System

    Follow up Install Instructions
    • Download rom and gapps
    • boot to recovery
    • flash rom and gapps
    • optional: flash superSu/Magisk
    • reboot system

    Finally got oreo working with sims. Ill post wt i did soon

    ---------- Post added at 01:47 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:13 PM ----------

    To get Oreo working on Blu, do the following:
    1. On Stock Blu MM backup IMEI using Mobile Uncle app. Put this backup on SDCARD so it does not get erased when you flash later.
    2. SPFlashTools>Format> Do an "Auto Format" flashing all except bootloader.
    3. SPFlashTools> "Format and Download" Wiko LP v11 Firmware but with BLU LP Preloader and Secro.
    4. When phone Boots up, check that baseband is not saying "Unknown". Sim will not be working at this point.

    ***Next Upgrade to Marshmallow before Continuing*** (Somehow after flashing Wiko LP i was already on Wiko MM, so just to be safe, upgrade to MM before continuing)

    5. Unlock Bootloader, flash twrp and flash magisk 16.0.
    6. Install MobileUncle and restore IMEI.
    7. Go to TWRP, install Oreo TWRP and reboot recovery. Found on facebook page https://www.facebook.com/notes/mad/rom-810-official-mados-wiko-fever-mt6753/1640799096003857/
    8. (Optional) Backup NVRAM just in case.
    9. Do a factory reset and finally flash madOS_8.1.0_fever_20180318.zip and open_gapps-arm64-8.1-pico-20180311.zip.

    Bugs I've Noticed:
    - Flashlight only works on Front Flash
    - Camera only has FrontCam View and is upside-down.
    - Double tap to wake screen not working
