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.

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.

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.
