    Just bought this phone (s5.5L) and Im now looking for custom roms for it since google play store cannot install anything (always force close when download completes). I’ve seen pages that claim cyanogenmod is supported on this phone, but that is a lie. Its not in their device list. Does anyone else have this phone? Please post if you have the chinese version with google play working or a custom rom for it.

      really, but you still can install apk’s right?
      do you have kit kat?
      was about to buy this phone, bummer!

        Yes, you can install apk’s. I do not have KitKat. I did a workaround by installing the Chinese app called HiMarket (google it), then installed KitKat launcher. I have still not been able to get Google play to install anything. SOME google services ARE working. For example, the stock contacts app managed to sync all my google contacts, but INSTALLING anything from google play does not work. Still looking for a custom rom.
