Hey guys, just wanted to write a short guide on where to find roms.

 

 

Here comes a list of websites where you can look:

 

1. http://www.needrom.com

2. http://multicorechina.com/android-roms/

3. http://www.xda-developers.com/

4. http://www.shendu.com

5. The website of the factory ( like hdcmobile.com)

6.http://www.chinasmartphonereview.com/

7. http://www.google.com


8. http://www.phtek.net/

 

if you cannot find a rom there , then also try BAIDU.

 

http://www.baidu.com

 

it´s a search engine like google, but baidu has better access to chinese websites (Almost all chinese people use baidu)

 

You can try to use a translater like google translate to find a rom there.

 

If you still cannot find a rom , ask the seller !

 

Just contact him and say your phone does not boot anymore or something and ask him if he can send you the link or dump the software.

 

Also you can write requests here, maybe some user has the same phone and can dump the software for you.

 

Hope you all find a ROM !

 

Best,

 

steven

sachinoraon,


the reason you cannot find a rom for that device is because it is not very well known you will usually only find roms for popular devices..sorry:-/

if that is a 'blu' phone then go to their official website you should be able to get one there


 


or try www.needrom.com


 


also a simple google search for your device stock rom should pull some info out of google...

Help !


I have this phone: Hardware: MT6582 (Qualcomm is Fake!)


Model: SM-G900F  Build number: KOT49H.G900FXXU1ANC9


Build date UTC: 20140915-095632    Android v: 4.4.2


Baseband v: MOLY.WR8.W1315.MD.WG.MP.V15, 2014/02/18 02:04


Kernel v : 3.4.5(dpi@SWDD5708)(gcc version 4.6x-google 20120106 (prerelease)(GCC)#1 SMP Mon Sep 15 17:54:02 CST 2014


Uboot v:              LDC Driver IC: 1r61318_hd720_dsi.


I want to know if this ROM(http://www.needrom.com/download/hdc-galaxys-s5-lte-mtk6582-quad-core-1-3ghz-5-1-ips-screen-android-4-4-2-phone/comment-page-2/#comments) is for the phone I have.


I also have Gps fix/lock problems, and I got this (http://pan.baidu.com/s/1qWoIj7Y) from the seller (ibaby) to flash, but I didn't do it coz the ROM date looked suspicious to me.


So please any help would be appreciated.


If I didn't post in the right forum, then please forgive me for that.


Thanks!

edwin, the rom from needrom is not the same LCD driver:


LCD Driver IC : 1-otm8019b_dsi_vdo_lcm_drv


so also other parts are maybe different. dont flash it.


Better flash the rom from the seller. but do a backup before you flash ! so you can go back easily.

Thanks Mate !


Good thing I asked first.


The ROM (S105_XLFF_V02_2015_0821_1647.tar) from the seller I doubt, because the date shows 2015 and we are not even there yet. Plus it show V02 (guess that's the version).


Anyway. Do you know any good ROM for my device which can give it 2GB of Mem? Oh I have to mention that mine has the real fingerprint scanner.


Thanks again for your reply.


This is an edited reply. I already found a solution for the Mem (1GB) problem. I partitioned my SD-card and I can store all of my APPS on there. On the internal Mem I only have the pre-installed (ROM) APPS.
