Lava N454 Custom ROM
Lava N454 Custom ROM
 Lava N454 comes with Android Icecream sandwich 4.0.4 which is way too old in 2015. Lava has no plans of releasing any OTA updates for this phone in future because of its price tag and lava’s poor service. But thanks to Manish Gussain who built a Android Jellybean 4.2.2 from a chinese phone’s source code. Its ultra smooth and has best memory management than the stock ROM. As the source code was not official we couldn’t fix Camera bug in it. But, other than that its really awesome.

Features :

  1. Original Android 4.2.2
  2. Reduced ROM size.
  3. Wifi Working.
  4. Bluetooth Working.
  5. GPS Working.
  6. Notification Bar ICON Changed.
  7. Added Extra Support for Kitkat ICONS.
  8. Added Few performance Tweaks.
  9. Added Build.prop Tweaks.
  10. Added Custom Optimized Kernel.
  11. True Kitkat ICONS. (Download from Below Link and flash it from recovery)


Only Camera Bug (We will fix it soon.)

    • Thanks a lot Pankaj for posting the ROM links ! 😀
      But please remove the Download link from the site just give the post link.
      Thanks again for making my work easier. 😉

  9. Thanks Ajinkya; your ROM is very stable it is working good since one month. but at least do something for HDMI ; as I assume there is no way to run Bluetooth mouse on Stock ROM ICS . as rohith said,…. Rohith , do you have working BT mouse in N454 stock rom ICS 4.0.4 ???

  10. Thank you very much sir today updated my iris 454 with this. I am searching from 9 months for any updates for this model. Please bug free update as early as possible.

  11. Please fix the cam bug. Good work though. ive been cooking a rom for this phone since ages. and yours is way stable. Good work dude.
    – using the 454 as a tab , using a tablet 7inch display , just wont throw it away coz of its HDMI . …and yeah please find a fix for that too

  12. Thank to You Sir .. for speacially BT mouse (to use this phone's full potential) working fine ,( In ICS, the BT mouse is problem) for which I tried/searched every thing from last 6 months even bricked it several times …installed lots of mtk6577 ROMs/scripts/BT enhacement apps etc. …he he he
    so I found there are several users who needs that ROM as this cheap phone has big potential to become a docking station (gaming and streaming) to connect TV after installing VLC; unified remote and EZ explorer etc… some work around or may be better for DLNA etc….

  13. shared your ROM in xda not link but "search string"
    waiting to say you "BIG THANKS" . 😉
    now trying to Xperia Z2 Walkman on N454.. will let you know
    "tricks and tweaks for android" is really cool and all working on N454..

  14. thanks Ajinkya ; most of working good..(wifi,BT, usb)… kernel is fine …..but HDMI is needed to use its full potential before cam I believe .. (its request only )

  15. boom !!! mouse is working may be after installing kitkat icons …..
    thanks … GAPPS LINK is slow/not working ;some another URL ???

  16. awesome ! dear Manish , Ajinkya ; its installed successfully and working good ;
    but my only reason searching for ugrading/custom ROM is for my Bluetooth mouse is not working with ICS; and It is not working with this ROM as well. "paired but not connected ; no cursor "
    Hope you can help! many thanks ..
