Hello to all,

I guess stas30 was right when saying that the last two firmware updates work. I checked it again (just a few minutes) and I can confirm that 3D, camera and making phone calls is working with the firmwares dated 2015-10-10 and 2015-11-09.

For this reason and to complete the firmware collection I modified both firmwares with root privileges, some minor changes and deodexed applications to make the xPosed Framework working. Like I said before I only did short tests - it's your job now to check what's working or not. But never forget to do a factory reset after having flashed a new rom !!!

If you like you can download the modified firmwares here:

p.s.: I personally went back to the firmware dated 2015-09-10 because I think the 3D effect is working best here. Maybe it's just a placebo or the cameras for scanning our eyes are working better. What do you think :confused:

@ s7ler
Please add both links to the OP. Thanks.

After this time you can discard offering from Google to run as payment account and close the VPS without losses. For details - please in private messages. Sorry, but I can't doing myself...

android update takee1

Hi sorry im new here, my son have takee1 but can not install pokemon to play because is have android 4.2 how i can update thank you so much Alexandra Jansen
Don't flash the ROMs from needrom, the 1S ROM is not compatible! and the other one is a VERY old Beta ROM, not usefull at all. Also you might loose the 3D effect if you flash another ROM, as the phone then needs to be calibrated again to show the 3D effect, and only Estar can do that then. As far as I know there is no KitKat ROM out.

If the look is different in videos you have seen, it is just using another launcher, but the ROM is still just based on 4.2 - I think the Chinese version from 2014 had another launcher, but that version did also miss the Play Store, so not recommended.

Pokemon runs on Android 4.4. If you install the latest CyanogenMod custom firmware by @luckasfb your son will be able to play Pokemon.
However, there are two bugs in this version. The 3D effect is not good enough. Front and rear cameras fail to install due to a detection failure but a workaround has been found.

Finally the Gyroscope and Microphone are fixed.

First you need to check if your phone has Root already with Root Checker Basic.
https://www.joeykrim.com/aapps

If not then run KingRoot or iRoot.

This is a XDA release of KingRoot. It is easy to uninstall, also removing a Purify app.
https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/one-click-root-tool-android-2- NewKingrootV5.0.4_C170_B389_xda_release_2017_02_13_20170213190902_105243.apk -5-0-t3107461

However, iRoot will install Chinese junk apps, easily removable.
Follow this video by s7yler

Nonetheless, read this first!

I did not try iRoot, a warning stopped the download.

Then proceed to the next steps.

You must install custom recovery (TWRP) and then install the ROM from recovery.

NOTE - Do not panic if you get this message "can't connect with the camera". Rear camera detection is not yet stable. The advice is to use an app (Quick Boot Plus, Reboot Manager, Power Manager [Reboot] or Link2SD) to perform a "Quick boot" or "Hot/Fast reboot" interface after the front camera detection. This brings access to a working rear camera in ROM 4.4.2 (workaround).

Luckas, can you make an automatic script to Root with DirtyCow, please?
It must save a backup of IMEI/NVRAM, also a full backup of the firmware.
Then an option to flash the TWRP custom recovery and Luckas ROM 4.4.2 or alternatively Pogodancer modified firmware.

The Chinese apps of KingRoot and iRoot are problematic.

Hi i root already but now the recovery and the other where i need install? in the pc? and connect to the phone?

I have edited the Pogodancer tutorial (ReadMe5.pdf), merging the relevant instructions of the original ReadMe.pdf and ReadMe2.pdf.

Download to your PC the Luckas ROM and TWRP custom recovery from the FTP link, also open the link to instructions that is provided on NeedRom.

Go to section "Software required by the PC" and download from those links.

To make it easy for you, opt for Minimal ADB and Fastboot tool in the first link.
https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790
Then come back and install the rest.

Thereafter, follow the ReadMe5.pdf tutorial by @pogodancer for IMEI/NVRAM backup and full firmware backup, with MTK Droid Root & Tools. Do a complete reading on the Flash procedure with Pogodancer modified firmware. Those details are important (i.e. power-off completely your TAKEE 1 and do not remove the battery).

Then proceed to flash the TWRP custom recovery and Luckas ROM 4.4.2., with SP Flash Tool.
http://www.needrom.com/download/estar-takee-1-kitkat-4-4-2-rom/
Do not forget to follow specific instructions from the NeedRom link.

If KingRoot blocks you for any reason give ROOT permission for those tools. There is a workaround to copy your IMEI/NVRAM using a File Manager.

Your TAKEE is brand new, do you need to save important data? Get a microSD card to save your photos, documents, files and firmware backups.
Is KingRoot annoying you and blocking your attempts? Uninstal KingRoot and loose your ROOT. It is possible to flash directly with SP Flash Tool but all the data on your TAKEE 1 will be gone.
If you follow this option then use the Chamelephon app to restore IMEI.

'3D Video' apk of firmware version 20151109-133448

Hello to all,

I guess stas30 was right when saying that the last two firmware updates work. I checked it again (just a few minutes) and I can confirm that 3D, camera and making phone calls is working with the firmwares dated 2015-10-10 and 2015-11-09.

For this reason and to complete the firmware collection I modified both firmwares with root privileges, some minor changes and deodexed applications to make the xPosed Framework working. Like I said before I only did short tests - it's your job now to check what's working or not. But never forget to do a factory reset after having flashed a new rom !!!

If you like you can download the modified firmwares here:

Takee-1_151010_151026-212141_root-mod-deodeXposed

Takee-1_151109_151114-172130_root-mod-deodeXposed

[email protected] [email protected]

p.s.: I personally went back to the firmware dated 2015-09-10 because I think the 3D effect is working best here. Maybe it's just a placebo or the cameras for scanning our eyes are working better. What do you think :confused:

@ s7ler
Please add both links to the OP. Thanks.

Can someone upload '3D Video' apk of firmware version 20151109-133448?
I remember it can play network file by enter URL.
TIA

Does the '3D Video' apk in Pogodancer's modified firmware version 151109_151114-172130 play network file by entering URL?

Luckas 4.4.2 rom

I've installed Luckas rom (4.4.2 - last), first impressions:

:good: positive: Easy to install following instructions on needrom & installed Gapps)

:good: positive: everything seems to work

:rolleyes: negative (ligth): Took several minutes to front camera to be active (used apk from playstore p-ower manager to perform hot reboot) - this process must be (re)done if battery goes to 0% or cold boot, after some "could not connect to camera" and "gallery" errors, starts working and the hot reboot turns on the rear camera. (Could the drivers of the camera be forced to load in the rom's boot?)

:rolleyes: negative (ligth): When using it opening and closing apks, after a while the phone seems to become slow and I have to reboot it. I don't know if this is from the rom or from the apks installed, but with stock rom this did not occured.

:rolleyes: negative (ligth): I have to reinstall USB MTP drivers as I could not write any file in the device from the PC, I could create folders but could not copy nothing there.

:confused: negative (severe): sometimes after a hot reboot sim1 turns off (spite beeing detected) and I can not figure how to turn it on again (I've changed sim to sim2 and it worked again, don't know yet if this problem will occur again) the first 2 times I've flashed again the rom (does anybody else have this issue?) (edited: I think it is related with network 2G/3G as this happened again yesterday (9th March) and I forced network manually and it started working after switching 2G/3G put it on auto and is still working)


I will be waiting for the lolipop version! Thanks Luckas! :D:good:

    Just got the Takee 1 today and want to share my full unboxing & first impressions about this phone.
    This is a new cheaper version of the last year released Takee 1. This version comes without any earphones and a more discreet packaging. For me it is okay, as the phone and hardware is the same, but the price is so much better.

    This version includes working Google Play Store out of the box! but it was missing Holo Space and 3D Films/Games etc. but I was able to install these things afterwards, so everything is fine! I believe it is called an EU version as the phone didn't include chinese apps and the ROM is pretty stock!

    The original introduction price of this phone was about 6-700 USD last year, but this one here is like more than 5 times cheaper! For that price it is worth it IMO, because the hardware & build quality is very good. Only on the software side it is still stuck with JB and there will likely not be any Lollipop in the near future. But I actually did get one OTA update on the phone from 10 septebmer 2015 so they do still update it.

    Unboxing & First look at the Takee 1 the world’s first 3D holographic smartphone that uses 3D display technology without the need for glasses
    PS. I know I by mistake say that it comes with KK but it is in fact JB.

    Xposed Framework

    Hello friends,

    after playing around with my Takee 1 I am satisfied with this cheap smartphone I bought from GearBest. The allover performance is not the best compared to other octacore devices but nevertheless it can be used comfortable. And the 3D-playback function is amazing. Unfortunately the possibility of changing settings in the 3D-video app are not satisfying.

    After lots of tests and the hint of Skalofrio1293 I was able to install XposedFramework to make the JellyBean device much more comfortable and nicer.

    1. To cut a long story short I collected the firmwares dated 2015-09-10 for each of you. I made a very big download package of 2.3GB including:

    - Stockrom unrooted
    - Stockrom rooted
    - Stockrom prepared for XposedFramework
    - TWRP custom recovery
    - 3D-movies and pictures from stock
    - files for reactiving the 3D-effect for people who have lost it

    You can find everything here: Takee-1_2015-09-10_151026-204849_AiO-pogo

    You can read my attached ReadMe.pdf for further informations.

    Please add the download link to your post #1. Thanks.

    Let's dance.

    Lets find a developer to port Android 6 (Marshmellow)

    Lets find a developer to port Android 6 (Marshmellow). Someone with an indisputable track record of sucess and good reputation. Then raise a fund among TAKEE owners to pay the developer. The payment must be on schedule delivery of a fully functional firmware.
    What do you think of this proposal?

    Succeeded to fix GPS problem!

    Read some articles, and thats the way I done it.

    Opened this: app.box.com/s/w57s1v1n3hie7l5lk28i/2/1033932257
    Downloaded file "gps.conf" for my country. Placed it to the /system/etc. (need root to replace existing system file). Run GPS TEST app. Entered to settings, pressed Clear AGPS. Then UPDATE AGPS. Closed GPS TEST app.
    Entered ENGINEER MODE. Then moved to LOCATION section. Entered LOCATION BASED SERVICE. Pressed EPO download button. After 3 minutes entered AGPS tab, pressed LOAD PROFILE. Then entered YGPS section. Made GPS TEST - 5 times with 1 sec interval. Entered SATELLITES tab - red dots (satellites) appeared. Then entered INFORMATION tab. Pressed FULL button, after abou 2 min status changed and information (about date, time, latitude and longitude etc) appeared. The same way with WARM, HOT and COLD buttons. After all pressed AGPS RESTART button. Then entered NMEA LOG tab. Pressed start button. Then entered SATELLITES tab - waited untill red dots became green. Then returned to NMEA LOG tab, pressed stop button - new atlas saved to the phone. Exited ENGINEER MODE. Run NAVITEL app. And voilà - abot 10 satellites are connected!

    I dont know what exactly helped to fix it, but I'm glad I made it work. And I hope that it will help somebody else.

    1. Too optimistic.
    2. The built quality of my device is mediocre only because the hardware buttons (volume rockers and power button) are not very solid. They should fit a bit stronger.
    3. That review is just a repetition of existing reviews. Nothing that we didn't know before. IMHO s7yler's review is much more helpful.
    4. Nevertheless thanks for the time you took.

    Hello to all,

    I guess stas30 was right when saying that the last two firmware updates work. I checked it again (just a few minutes) and I can confirm that 3D, camera and making phone calls is working with the firmwares dated 2015-10-10 and 2015-11-09.

    For this reason and to complete the firmware collection I modified both firmwares with root privileges, some minor changes and deodexed applications to make the xPosed Framework working. Like I said before I only did short tests - it's your job now to check what's working or not. But never forget to do a factory reset after having flashed a new rom !!!

    If you like you can download the modified firmwares here:

    Takee-1_151010_151026-212141_root-mod-deodeXposed

    Takee-1_151109_151114-172130_root-mod-deodeXposed

    p.s.: I personally went back to the firmware dated 2015-09-10 because I think the 3D effect is working best here. Maybe it's just a placebo or the cameras for scanning our eyes are working better. What do you think :confused:

    @ s7ler
    Please add both links to the OP. Thanks.
