No buddy no theme engines yet until we r Marshmallow . Substratum starts working from Marshmallow

And the talk of Roms. I m not currently working on one but collecting materials for it ,will start working in a month i have board exams approaching. So sry u have to wait a bit but surely after a month i will. Till then u can suggest what kind of rom u want it would help me

Do take your time mate. Having a custom recovery and root for an unpopular phone like LYF is a big thing. :)

And all the best for your exams. :cowboy:

That was a nice link... Could not get in deep though. Thanks for sharing..
I saw nubia z9 Mini hardware is somewhat similar to water 7 ( I see both have same kernel too ). Can we do something with that ? I tried to check for their custom ROM so far no luck :(. I do not see a device forum for z9 mini in xda developers.

BTW how is your exam going ??? :)

Thanks for Informing . And First xam went well not others are comming . And yes this info could help also first we have to make Water-7's own stock zip ROM then further porting is possible without burden .just have to wait till 08/April then i will start making custom rom

@Gautam Maini, "The (Water 7) mobile prompted for an update and when clicked update, the device shut down ( bricked? ) ". This message was from my brother who currently has the mobile. I currently do not have access to the mobile. It seems the newer update ( don't know which update or whether the update caused the issue. I'll ask clearly when I go home :) ) bricks the mobile. Meanwhile ask people not to update if any update prompt pops up. :)

Is there any flashable zip that can revive Water 7 if the issue was certainly a brick?

Thanks.... Hope you had an easier exams and wishes for easier future exams too :)

I already told the persons not to update . If device is tempered like rooted or unlocked or custom recovery then updating officially can brick the device .If ur device is purely Factory only then Flash the Official update otherwise​ brick is must . Although sometimes due to Jio's downloading speed issues a damaged update is downloaded which can also cause brick (happned with me on the 1st day i brought device). So now if u r bricked then there are two ways 1).Take the device to Service Center no matter u r rooted or whatever 2).flash TWRP and then i send u a Backup file

I MySelf Did and perfer to do also to end OTA survival if u wanna modify device also have OTA updater installs Bloatware and ADware on device

Thanks For wishes
