See new Jelly Bean 4.1 ROM for UMi X1 here

A new ROM for UMi X1 has been released. It’s based on Android 4.04, imitates some build design from Samsung, and is touted as the most efficient energy saving ROM available for UMi X1.

Some of the new features include:

  • All Google services should now work properly
  • Dynamic wallpaper support improved
  • Useless/”junk” applications removed
  • New power-saving mode
  • WIFI scan time and battery use improved
  • Root file management added
  • Built-in Dolby sound!
  • Built-in ad-blocker

Installation instructions:

  1. Downloaded zip package (see below for links)
  2. Do not unzip. Copy directly to SD via USB
  3. Shut down the UMi X1
  4. Hold volume up while turning on the power button until recovery mode boots
  5. Use up and down to navigate, “menu” button to select and “back” to return to the previous menu
  6. Select “Clear all data” / restore factory settings
  7. Select “from the SD card”
  8. “Choose ZIP file” and find the new ROM copied to SD
  9. Confirm and wait approximately 1 minute for completion
  10. Return to first menu and select “reboot the system” (First start will be slower)

It appears there are 2 versions of the ROM. One of them is labeled as having the Google services. My assumption here is that one is not streamlined with the Google service mods, and the other is.

Standard

w/Google services mods
