    hey i tried it all, but since my elife e5 doesnt support an external sd card, i had to move rom zip file on my internal storage, and during the installation everything is getting wiped out and hence installation is aborted in midway with error 7.
    Please tell me what should i do.

    Thank you in advance


      Ho gai hai yahane ni abb plzz tell me its work now or not in e5

  • Sexydjb

    and man have you tried on these devices or not, as in the script i saw that it cannot be installed on any phone not having external sd card, so how come you said it will work on these devices. man please tell me


      Tell me too

  • guys the ROM in the download link points to a Galaxy S3 ROM,

    DO NOT FLASH IT on your Mediatek devices. You will brick it !!!

    • agi

      Only soft bricked, not hard bricked. You can recover your phone by using Smart Phone Flash Tool from Mediatek with the correct ROM.


        If u mobile gone soft brick how we download smart phone flash in mobile

        • agi

          Smart Phone Flash Tool only run on Windows platform. You can search in XDA or Google.
