I am thinking of flashing my emax mini.

I am looking for a stable rom for starters. I have no major complains regarding my device except that tethering doesn't work.

Can you please suggest a rom that will do the trick. All else is working ok.

And if you can point out a written guide for a step by step process to do it.

Btw, when I connect to rootjoy it says that there are no available roms to flash for my device. The phone is recognized and I can definitely see on my pc the screen of my phone live. Also when I press the recovery button it does reboot into recovery mode.

Thanks

Sad, for such a great phone!
Performant, compact (optimum size!), good battery runtime, qualcomm cpu, good camera, dual sim + sd card and not even expensive.

With a period of 5.5 inches after that or 5 inches convenient, put the pocket. The day before yesterday to enable 3s and update the card brush cm-12.1-20161204-UNOFFICIAL-q39 spent a long time, and now can not enter the system, the card in the first screen, 9008 com QDLoader can not enter sys.

After two years of heavy usage I got the UMI eMax Mini back to my hands. I made a hard reset and went to root it again. I was using now another PC (Windows 7), hence I also had to install tools from the stratch.

For rooting I used now method "Root with TWRP" - referring to the OP instructions by @bencebacsi, from the first page.  Everything went fine, with only few caveats to mention.

1) I used minimal_adb_fastboot_v1.4.2_setup.exe, from https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790, with emax_mini_twrp_driver_install.exe

2) All the other download links worked, except for SuperSU-v2.56-20151030013730.zip
Fortunately, I found my local copy from two years ago.
Probably a newer version of SuperSU ZIP would also work.
Upon rooting, SuperSU was updated to 1.82 from Google Play and then updated its binaries, normal way.

Upon rooting I have installed:
- AdAway-v3.2-Feb.08.2017.apk from https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2190753
- ‎xposed-v88-sdk21-arm64.zip (through TWRP) and XposedInstaller_3.1.2.apk from https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3034811

Off the Xposed modules I'm using:

i) Xposed-YoutubeBackground-v2_04.apk
Google has forced it out from Google  Play and even Xposed repo, download it instead from https://forum.xda-developers.com ... back-issue-t3640763
It doesn't work with the latest YouTube, hence use the following trick:
- In Google Play, disable auto updating for YouTube app
- ‎Uninstall YouTube
- ‎Install its older version youtube_12.34.55-1234552300.apk (from Sep 2017), download link is also in the XDA thread as above
- ‎install and enable Xosed module Xposed-YoutubeBackground-v2_04.apk

ii) GravityBox [LP]_5.4.7.apk from the Xposed repo http://repo.xposed.info/ and I'm using it for three tweaks

- Statusbar tweaks, QuickSettings management, Master switch: On and Statusbar QuickSettings tiles tweaks
- Media tweaks, Volume keys skip tracks
- ‎Navigation keys actions, Home key, Long-press action: Go to sleep

At the end, I have only a minor problem with that old TWRP 2.8.7.0: iroot_twrp_recovery_emaxmini_15110412.img
- It shows Jan 1 (now 2), 1970 and some useless time?!
On all my other (rooted) phones, TWRP (newer versions) can correctly recognize the real date and time

Edit: Finally I also installed Viper4Android, see post #48:http://community.umidigi.com/thread-1524-5-1.html

After two years of heavy usage I got the UMI eMax Mini back  ...

How do I rescue my emax mini when all of the partitions allshow zero 0MB?
I have TWRP v2.8.7.0 installed and when I go into Wipe,Advanced Wipe and then pick system, data or cache they all say that the“partition is present” that the size is 0MB.
They will not mount I can’t Resize or Repair or change filesystem,
I get the same error E:Unable to mount ‘/system or data orcache.
I have tried the engineering download tool to reset thephone to stock but what I get is at 2% after 25 seconds of running  
[Com7→PC (4)] you selected product M3M current handset isN/A continue?
Click yes and when it reaches 23% I get
Com7→PC (4) Download C6FA6060BU00.mbn failed error code40016.
I have run this a number of times and get the same results.I have tried every USB port on the computer (12 in all) I have run it on threelaptops (one is still on Windows XP) and it doesn’t work. Any ideas?
Oh and by the way I made a complete back up of the phonewith TWRP and saved it on my NAS and that won’t install (due to E: failed tomount)

Good day. My UMI eMax Mini does not start, it constantly reboots, I want to take data from memory, I thought to install TWRP recovery and connect the memory for downloading to my computer, but this does not work out either via SDCard or ADB, and Flashtool does not help, as the processor not MTK, but Qualcomm. USB debugging has been disabled, it is forbidden to execute system commands via adb or fastboot. Help how to be?
