  • ZZI

    Unfortunately, there is a bug which locks the phone. I will try and fix this, and I will post a link to the updated version if I pull it off. I think the C Mini is in sore need of an OS upgrade by now.

    I apologize for not finding this out sooner, I do not have a SIM card in my C Mini on a normal basis.

    Does this ROM includes virtual buttons un the screen?

    • Devs-Lab Staff

      You can enable it through build.prop file. Just add “qemu.hw.mainkeys=1” at the end of the file.

  • Perny

    This is wonderful!! It does have a few bugs; start up time is within a minute; installation wiped my imei; some apps crash randomly and I seem to have a storage error, file manager doesn’t show my 2gb of rom and mass storage doesn’t connect to my computer (at all). Those are just a few bugs that I found; it is otherwise awesome. Very good job guys, keep up the good work. Love it!

  • jose Leal

    This version is compatible with BLU D670U model ?. The install but requires key sim cards, it does not have it enabled

  • ZZI

    Wow! I’m surprised this has actually turned into a rom post for the Studio C Mini! I will post something about this on the Blu Google+ forums. By the way, I flashed this onto a Kitkat MIUI 6 rom – so a stock rom is not needed for installation, but I recommend an Android 4.4 rom just to be safe. I also timed a full reboot and found that the entire reboot took 1 minute and 2 seconds, not the four minutes.
