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:
- 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:
Based on “Recovery”
Try enter recovery: Vol + or Vol – or Home with Power button
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 motherboard looking the same, model Oppo F3 Plus MT6580, but 2 motherboard not use the same version firmware
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.
