With the information above, it will not help you because no one knows exactly firmware you need.

Or, them for you wrong Rom –> “Murphy’s law

 

To find out which version of Android firmware is running on your device, just follow the steps below:

Note: Instructions vary depending on which device you have. Below are general steps that may not work on your device.

 

Identify firmware version based on “Build Number”

Power on phone –> Menu –> Settings –> About phone –> look at “build number”

This is version for your device:

V195C_HD_M_V1.1_88_20170404_1808_V1.0.3_LCD1_MRW_WY_R15_ANDROID_F1S

with:

  • Main version : V195C – V1.1
  • LCD: HD (type LCD1 – maybe have version firmware LCD different)
  • Rom verion: V1.0.3

Based on “Build.prop”

Download and install RootExplorer_v3.3.5.apk. After installation, open it and find the “system” folder, look for a file called “build.prop”. If prompted, open with any text file editor you have, or copy “build.prop” to sdcard.
After open “build.prop”, find text similar below:

 

Version for your phone:

V109_HD_M_V1.3_88_DDR3_GD_20161219_2101_V1.0.6_XX_K8C1_XBO_SUPER10

 

Based on “Recovery”

Try enter recovery: Vol + or Vol – or Home with Power button

Version: Z6U090HA_V029En20161014

 

Stamp stick on motherboard

Open and disassemble the phone, look at stamps on the motherboard.

Example 1: This is version on main: Z6U190HC

 

Example 2: look Pic 1 and Pic 2, two mains are the same –> Clone Oppo F3 Plus MT6580

Pic 1: B5_80L_WE_3GW_B5_64_6

Pic 2: B5_80L_WE_3GW_B5_DDR2_64_8

Flashed wrong firmware: 100% blank, black, white or multicolored screens.

 

So if the phone is dead, the only way is to look at the motherboard.

Remember always make a backup of your device before flashed new the ROM.

Recommend as follows: backup Rom as scatter (not *.bin) for easy saved your phone.
