    hi Guys,

    I have a MT6580 tablet which I bought from China; tldr its fake ware os on it and I need a clean os to make this usable.

    It is 1280×800 resolution and everything else seems standard.

    Would in theory any MT6580 ROM work with this device ?

    Is it easy to modify ROMs(I am a pro programmer), if I cant just use one ?

    Or is there a ROM already I can use which is tailored to this/maybe someone else has had same kind of device they want flashed?

    Thanks for your time guys, I am new to Android ecosystem any help would be appreciated.

    Hi @gavin_burns

    Can you give more information of the tablet such as the following details:
    – Chipset
    – RAM
    – Internal storage
    – Camera (Front and back)
    – 3G or LTE or Wifi only
    etc.

    Lets see if there are some ROMs available for this device!

    One problem is that the OS has been hacked to give a fake report about the RAM/screen res etc so its difficult to be 100% sure on this, but my experiments show:

    —————————————

    MT6580 SOC: I dont know where to find more info on the chipset or what other info is needed; im running CPU info

    1280×800 Screen Resolution

    1GB RAM – Just by experimenting – system reports differently(hacked os)

    16GB storage is my best guess.  The storage is reported wrongly by hacked OS.  I have access to about 10GB before device stops accepting data.

    Camera Front:3120×4160
    Camera Rear:1920×2560
    This is based upon images I captured.
    Camera I never use and dont care about unless it is important for build to work.

    Wifi, 3G and Bluetooth.  I doubt it has anything more sophisticated.

    ———————————-

    One of my biggest concerns is in case something more nasty than just faked numbers is lurking in this OS.  For me to use this tablet a lot of mission critical info needs to be on it and if it gets stolen that will be a disaster.

    Any help getting a ROM for this would be great; I dont necessarily need everything working, just screen+sound+wifi on a clean os would be a big step up.

    *I already have root on the device, just need the ROM

    Thanks for all your help guys, @siba especially

    IF I installed a generic MT6580 ROM for another device would it work? Would the OS be smart enough to work out screen size etc?

    I would guess device drivers would be similar if its the same chipset also?

    Is there a real difference between these builds for MT6580 phones and this tablet ?

    How would one go about creating a new build if these differences are critical?

    You can try some ROM made for MT6580 on your device.

    But make sure you keep a backup of all of the partitions on your device. THIS IS IMPORTANT.
    Even if something does not work, you can flash the backup and get back to the original state.
