yes i did excatly you said, i installed first with flashtool, rooted with framaout than twrp, but i installed the version vibe ui 1.5 as in the site version totoal 571MB, your file version is it different?

doesn't matter, as you have cwm you can root your device with install supersu via cwm or recovery mode. look at step 15.
chinese rom is use to install cwm so we can install vibe ui using zip file method. if you install vibe ui using flash tool method then it wrong

Mustafa Nebioglu

i have installed vibe excatly you said, using zip file method, i only used flashtool to install initial chinese stock rom , i have followed the steps, but after i install vibe, since its not rooted anymore, when i try to go to recovery, it will come up some chinese writings which i dont understand, i think after the installation new vibe, phone is not rooted anymore, and for now, there is no anyway to root it with current vroot type programs.

when install vibe what is your recovery mdoe status ? or after finish vibe don't reboot to vibe ui strught install gapps and root, do step 12 don't boot to vibe ui

Mustafa Nebioglu

the point is you cannot root it in recovery mode, you are assuming the rooted phone when it was in Chinese rom, but after you install vibe, its gone, no more rooted, so this is not working method for rooting.

androidrookies

You wrong, the point is the cwm read careful on step 12, when you in chinese rom you install root for install cwm recovery in cwm recovery you install vibe ui. The cwm is still there because you not reboot and go to vibe ui. Still on cwm install gapps and install root. If your cwm gone after install vibe ui it because you reboot your phone and select restore recovery when reboot process.

PLEASE HELP ME HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. I DONT WANNA SWITCH TO ANY OTHER ROM AS I FLASHED IT AFTER VERY MUCH DIFFICULTY.

Hi,
I would like you to do some test for me to indentification the problem. Please make dial call with sim 1 and sim2 do *#06# and tell me the result.
Not work mean sim2 don't have a signal or sim 2 not recognize ? Please describe it.
If you dial *#06# and result an invalid than it means you have lost your IMEI, just restore it using mobileuncle. Because you already have backup it right?

Thank you

Andy
