hi and thanks for the reply.
this is not the official stock rom. This is a rom that does not have the VOS installed.
i contacted the guys from needrom and they agreed.
The latest stock rom is 20170705222633
Ok Thank You for confirmation. Will be updating the article as soon as we get the dump of 20170705222633.
The recovery installed but upside down and the touch screen doesn’t work (need to access with a password too) any thoughts?
don’t worry about the upside down just plug the phone and open the root file.
Can you extract the stock rom from your phone and upload it for the rest of as to upgrade?
How do I install root from plugging the phone in if I can’t use twrp? Can you trigger the install from PC?
I have the previous version I’m afraid, the one you posted on xda
just plug your phone just the way it is in twrp and open the root file.
What concerns me is that no one is willing to dump the latest stock rom with VOS
Says root is installed (antivirus picks it up) but root checker says its not rooted?
Yeah.not good, can’t even wireless update to do what you’re asking. This is the previous version, correct? – http://www.androidweblog.com/update-vernee-mars-pro-android-7-nougat-stock-rom/
just deactivate the antivirus
yes, it’s a very early version. This version is from 14/4/2017 when the phone itself starting shipping late june…. you can imagine..
Still no luck, I’ll wait haha. Thanks
the above method works for me with this early rom though,
but you’re welcome 🙂
