      Hi Andy .
      I just bought a P 780 4G version from China and came with this Rom:
      Baseband version – P780.V101,2014 / 03/12 3:06 p.m.
      Build Number -VIBEUI_V2.0_9439_7.10.1_DEV_P780

      You think it's better to pass on P780_S228_ROW_150112, it is more stable?
      What can you tell me about this ROM.

      Thank you very much

      A successful flash!

      First of all, I would like to thank the admin for sharing this ROM.

      Secondly, I'm impressed with this, it doesn't contain any unwanted Chinese apps. I personally would recommend this ROM over the latest Chinese ROM.

      Thank you.

      that because you already change your system file, root or install custom recovery before. solution is just do manual update if you want to update your device

      You should know fromnthe first time you buy it. See at internal memory 4GB usually have only 2GB internal storage ans 8GB usually have 4GB internal storage

      Easy way is using king root or framaroot, hardway is you must install custom recovery first and then install supersu from custom recovery
