[Official] [ROM] QuarkOS™ v2.0 Stable for Yureka and Yureka Plus [LP-5.1.1][ARM64]

QuarkOS Title Image

I am very happy to release my first version of QuarkOS for Yu Yureka and Yureka Plus. With the demand of VoLTE support for Yureka (especially after the arrival of Jio :p) and availability of YU5510A-LP VoLTE modem there was a need of a good ROM/OS which can use the modem much efficiently to provide VoLTE calling and other LTE features. So, here comes the QuarkOS™ fully designed by me. It will give the best VoLTE experience with best battery backup to Yureka users without any heating issue whatsoever.

QuarkOS™ gives you the best telephony, best UI, best sound, best performance, best battery backup, best camera performance and best ever user experience.

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.

  26. I flashed this ROM yesterday and must say it is the best I've used. But don't know why I am getting this issue 'Camera not available' while using Xperia camera apps. Also native app is not working. I actually did a wipe of internal memory while flashing. Don't know if the problem persists bcoz of it. Please help.

    1. Wiping internal and data after flash may have caused the issue. Try a clean flash.

  27. Nice work bro. However still some small issues, my default location in clock is kolkata, i am unable to change it. Battery works superb in stand by mode but on WiFi draining very fast. whole 100% draining within 1 to 2 hours, do i need to change any settings? kindly help bro.

    1. Kolkata is showing because Indian timezone and you cannot change it cuz you are living in India. For battery try tweaking the Kernel Adiutor settings...I am not an expert in these things. However I am working on it.

  28. Nitesh Bhayya ROM is really Awesome. Is it possible to release a lighter version of QuarkOS with some basic apps, VoLTE and prolonged battery backup?

  35. Hie nitesh prasad ,this ROM is very good. Thanks for building this. But some apps like ICICI Imobile,Citrix Secure hub do get shut down on their own. please suggest any solution.

  36. Sir new ROM kab take aayega??
    Ye ROM bahot hi acha h sir pr kabhi kabhi restart ho Jata hai apne SE aor kbhi kbhi restart ho Kr quark os k logo pr hi Ruk Jata hai aor fir SE wipe data KAR k install krna pdta h sir. Koi solution hai eshka jis SE ye problem solve go jaye?
    Aor sir agla build Marshmellow hoga ??

    1. Rebooting issue is there only for you I guess. Try formatting your all the partitions completely. Also check for battery calibration and problems.

      No, the next build will be Lollipop.
