Bugs and Workarounds

Known bug: Led notification light not working for notifications when charger is not connected. [But works with USB plugged]

Workaround: Use Light Flow Pro app (or LED Blinker app) to set led notification for your favourite app. Set the LED to “Always on”.

Limitation: Since the ROM is fully based on AOSP, there is no native support for NTFS and exFAT file systems.

Workaround: Use Paragon NTFS, ExFAT Mounter app from Google Play.

Some Tips

The ringtones are set to 'none' by default. So select your favourite ringtone after flashing. ("Sound picker " app is preferred)
Use Xperia Camera Widget to access all the Camera addon apps.

[FIX] YUREKA AO5510 Touchscreen Calibration Issue

4 comments
Yureka-Touch-Issue

Hurray! Finally, I fix the touch calibration issue; many many thanks to God who showed me the right path.
After suffering hard in last 15 days, even not getting any help from YU Officials, finally God bestowed upon me his blessings and provided me the hint to fix the issue.

What caused the Issue?

YU Televentures released a new batch of Yureka Plus (YU5510A-LP) devices with VoLTE feature. This created a storm in Yureka /Plus section of the forum. Some users even bricked after flashing the new firmware since it was totally different from the previous Yureka firmware. I got the backup of /system and /boot from a YU5510A-LP user. I deodexed the files and made a ROM out of it and flashed on my device to test whether it boots or not (a common process of ROM porting). It didn’t boot but it went beyond the boot logo and since the Kernel of YU5510-A didn’t have the correct display drivers for AO5510, I was getting strange characters on the screen. After that I rebooted to TWRP recovery. I was shocked the touch was malfunctioning. If I touch up it was working down, it was totally a mess.

This issue is much dangerous than bricking the device. Even if we brick, we may recover it by following @Ricks guide, but with malfunctioning touchscreen phone is utterly useless. It can’t be fixed even after flashing the EMMC backup.

After that I reported to the YU Officials about the touch calibration issue, they didn’t provide any fix, but created a Warning thread regarding it. So sad. :(

They were even not ready to provide me the touch firmware of Yureka AO5510. They told me that they are also trying to find the cause of touch calibration issue and don’t have the required files. Here is the quote of the reply from YU Officials:

I am afraid that we don't have any files for fixing the issue. To make sure that such thing does not happen we internally test every case before releasing the software. In your case, you got the software from unknown sources and flashed it on your device with your own consent and understanding. Yes, we have devs but they work on cases which have higher reproducibility rate like the proximity sensor issue.

After that I analysed the YU5510A-LP VoLTE firmware and found that it was created by Coolpad, a Chinese Smartphone Company. So YU Televentures has imported not only the smartphone (YU5510A-LP) but also the firmware from Coolpad. That’s why it has some unknown bugs which the YU Offical Devs don’t know because they haven’t made the firmware. That’s why the devs didn’t have fix for touch calibration issue. YU is spending very less on service and devs, which very much disappointing. YU, an Indian brand made Yureka for tech freaks and that’s why so many devs engaged in it and even some noobish users like me became devs to raise the company above cheap Chinese brands. But now it’s status is deteriorating, it broke its partnership with Cyanogen and lost the support of so many great devs; and now it is left with some official noobish devs who are taking time like hell to provide a VoLTE patch for other users, this shows how irresponsible is the YU Company. And now it has already been provided by a YU Forum user. Even the Official YU OS is provided by our friend dev @AudioGod.

I hope my words reaches to the YU Company and they take this criticizing in the right way and improve itself. I want to see this Indian Company rise beyond heights.

After lot of analysis and research I found that the cause of touch calibration issue was the kernel of YU5510A-LP ROM. It changed the TP-Firmware version and touch parameters of Yureka AO5510 (HD) according to Yureka YU5510A-LP (FHD) device and messed up the calibration.

This TP firmware is different in Yureka and Yureka Plus and it never changes after flashing any firmware (fastboot or ROM).

Yureka AO5510 : Each:GT970:0x1039:0x46
Yureka Plus YU5510 : Ofilm:GT970:0x1039:0x48
And mine was : Each:GT970:0x1039:0x47

Yureka (Plus) Touch Panel is manufactured by Goodix, a Chinese Touch Panel and Fingerprint Sensor company.

What didn’t fix the issue?

These are the things which didn't fix the calibration issue:

  • Flashing stock COS 12.1 ROM through recovery
  • Flashing COS 12.0/12.1 fastboot firmware
  • Flashing COS 12.0 CPB using YGDP tool (which threw an error of incompatible device before flashing)
  • Flashing all other partitons (=EMMC backup)
  • Using Annabathina’s Yureka Unbricking Tool

How did I find a Fix?

While surfing through internet I found a way to check the touch firmware version. Then I checked mine and also asked about it from other Yureka users. Then I searched about the firmware version and got an XDA Thread and also got to know about Goodix Touch Firmware and Goodix Firmware Upgrade Tool (GTP ADB Tool) from Elephone (another Chinese company) forum which I didn’t get from YU.

I read the XDA thread learned about the whole thing and created a Goodix TP Firmware/Config myself.

How to Fix Yureka AO5510 Touch Calibration Issue?

STEP 1: Download GtpAdbToolV1.7_20140424.zip and GT970_1039_AO5510-TP-Firmware.zip on your Windows PC and extract it. Go to the extracted folder of Gtp Adb Tool and run the GtpAdbTool.exe application. Then connect you YUREKA AO5510 to your PC (be sure USB debugging is enabled in your device). You will see the GTP ADB Tool window similar to the screenshot below:

Touch Calibration Fix Step-1


STEP 2: Now click on the button as indicated in the screenshot below and navigate for the GT970_1039_AO5510-TP-Firmware.cfg file (that you extracted in Step 1) and select it.

Touch Calibration Fix Step-2


STEP 3: Then click on the button indicated in the screenshot below to execute firmware upgrade process. Once completed, you can unplug your device and reboot. Voila touchscreen issue fixed! :)

Touch Calibration Fix Step-3

NOTE (Important):
If the GTP ADB Tool doesn't detect your device or TP firmware, then flash any of the following ROMs:

NucleaROM by @Rakesh Batra
Hexagon ROM by @Rakesh Batra
Or any other ROM

If the above ROMs doesn’t work then try flashing 
CoolUI 6.0 for YUREKA (Test build): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=457095661767103935
(After flashing this ROM you may see a 'root' indication on YU LOGO, but you can fix that using Annabathina's Tool)

  • Cloned Apps – using this feature you can clone apps like WhatsApp, Hike etc. and use two different WhatsApp etc. with different accounts on the same phone.

Some Tips

  • After first boot you may feel little lag but it will go after few hours of use. So don't panic.
  • MIUI does not support NTFS file system. So better use FAT formatted SD Card and USB. But if you have already a NTFS formatted SD Card then use Paragon exFAT, NTFS & HFS+ App to mount it.
  • You may feel little battery drain since it is still in beta stage. It will be fixed in the upcoming builds. (Fixed in Latest builds after 6.6.30)
  • Do not flash MIUI Official OTA Updates, it will BRICK your device.

[ROM] ColorOS 3.0 Beta for Yureka and Yureka Plus [Englishized][PORT]

10 comments
ColorOS-3.0 LOGO

ColorOS 3.0 Globalized Beta ROM for Yureka and Yureka Plus [Fully Englishized] [Latest][Android Lollipop 5.1.1][ARM64][PORT]

OPPO’s ColorOS is an awesome custom Android OS forked from AOSP. This ROM is specially developed for OPPO devices and comes with many handy features which make OPPO smartphones stand out. This colorful OS comes with plenty of customization capabilities with its own online theme store. Custom touchscreen gesture is another promising feature. Nicely quoted in the official site:

“ColorOS is an OS that combines speed, efficiency and stability to bring pixels to life.”

After my MIUI 7 Global and China Developer ROM, here comes my ColorOS 3.0 Beta [Globalized] ROM for Yureka and Yureka Plus.

Color OS 3.0 (V3.0.0_160527_Beta) Globalized ROM is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and comes with many new features. Since this is Globalized Edition so there are no Chinese apps and is multilingual.

NOTE: This ColorOS ROM is not an official release for ColorOS Team/OPPO. It is just a ported ROM from OPPO R7 Plus, so don’t expect zero bug.

This ROM is based on ARM64 firmware so your device needs to be upgraded to 64 bit firmware. [Yureka/Yureka+ Cyanogen OS users can upgrade to 64 bit firmware by flashing Cyanogen OS Lollipop OTA update.]

Disclaimer: This ROM has been tested and verified to be stable for daily use but there may be some unknown bugs. The development team is not responsible for any damage to your device or your information.
ColorOS 3.0 UI
ColorOS 3.0 Awesome UI

Features

Eye Pleasing and Comfortable UI: ColorOS 3.0 comes with great new fine-tuned icons and a Single Layer Launcher for easy and smart access. (The UI resembles like that of iOS)

Great Customizations: ColorOS comes with awesome themes with its own Theme Store. It also has Lockscreen Magazine and status bar customizations.

Dirac HD Sound®: ColorOS comes with a highly integrated music player with a nice looking UI. And its Dirac HD Sound® delivers unique acoustic optimization with nice bass and an immersive multi-dimensional listening experience. Learn more about Dirac HD Sound®

Custom Gestures: ColorOS comes with seamless gesture support for a hassle free experience.

Screen-off Gestures: You can use gestures to turn on the phone or open an app or control music when your phone’s screen is off.

Screen-on Gestures: You can also use gestures for different tasks like taking screenshot, single-handed mode etc. when your phone’s screen is turned on.

Outstanding Camera: ColorOS Camera Software is the best camera software available for any android device. It is very much fine tuned to provide the best balance between quality, detail, sharpness and colors and thus provide best in type results. All thanks to OPPO’s Pure Image 3.0+ technology.

Apart from this, it also comes with many camera modes and plugins to improve your photography experience—Voice Shot, Ultra HD, Beautify, HDR, GIF,  RAW, Double Exposure and more.

So this is really a superb camera software to compliment YUREKA Plus’s superb camera hardware.

Other Exciting Features: There are many other nice features in ColorOS like Free Screenshot, Eye Protection Display, Smart Call, Easy Dial, Cover Mode etc. etc.

Initial release

How to Install

  1. Download the latest build of ColorOS ROM and Gapps for ColorOS (link provided) for Yureka or Yureka Plus
  2. Reboot to TWRP Recovery
  3. Wipe data, system, cache and dalvik cache from advanced wipe menu
  4. Flash ColorOS ROM
  5. Flash Gapps for ColorOS (you can flash Gapps also after first boot)
  6. Reboot (first boot may take up to 15 to 20 mins.)
  7. After boot, complete ColorOS 3.0 setup and enjoy or do the following!
NOTE: If you want to enjoy the full Englishized version of the ROM the you have to edit the build.prop as directed: change persist.sys.oppo.region=CN to persist.sys.oppo.region=US (you can use build.prop editor app for the purpose)

Bugs and Workarounds

First I have to tell you that the ROM has no major bug and is very much stable.
  • Torch icon in notification drawer is not working. So, please use the Flashlight app provided for torch. ;)
  • You may feel little lag at the beginning. But it will go after using few hours as the OS gets settled. You can also use custom kernels for better performance.
  • If you are facing slow charging issue then change kernel. But default kernel more stable.
  • ColorOS screen-off gestures not working except double-tap-to-wake. But you can use @Vishal Gohel’s GeXture App available on Google Play for more screen-off gestures.
  • Some ColorOS Camera plugins not working (like panorama etc.) due to different camera sensor in Yureka.
  • If you find your background apps are auto-killed then got to Settings >> Battery >> "Your" App >> Disable 'Freeze background apps' and 'Auto optimize...' done.
  • More bugs found?! Then please notify me.
I am working (in my free time obviously) to fix these bugs. So it may take time and please don’t repeat the bugs already mentioned here. But if you have any fix for these bugs or found any other bug, then your suggestions are very much invited.

Fix for Titanium Backup
  1. Install Busybox 42
  2. Disable 'Mount namespace separation' in SuperSU
  3. Reboot
  4. Then Titanium Backup Will work.:)
Special thanks to @blackarrow for this method.:)


Some Tips

  • The ROM may lag at the beginning since ColorOS requires some time to settle. So please give some time to it.
  • To get outstanding battery backup in standby mode, turn off wifi, data and gps.
  • You can use other custom kernels if you are not satisfied with the default kernel. One tested kernel is Velocity Kernel v. 10.2 or below (because later versions are creating problems with camera)
