Hi,
I just wanted to say THANK YOU! You saved my phone - I really wanted to get rid of it (TCL M3G), ...

I'm glad you're happy with the rom!
There are currently 3 threads with my builds:
  • This one, in English.
  • One in MovilesDualSim, a spanish forum, in Spanish.
  • One in TCL BBS, whose responsible is @imknown, in Chinese.

You can look for updates  in any of them and they will all be updated with my latest builds whenever I publish one. The Chinese one may be slighly slower to update as I don't do it myself. Users also post my ROMs in 4pda.ru (Russian), in the TCL M3G thread.
I ask explicitly that no one should mirror my links, so you should find the same links in any of those places. My links will always be hosted in BasketBuild, and all versions are accessible through this link: https://basketbuild.com/devs/varotone/q39
Cheers!

Are you VladKZN on 4pda, the one who's been posting my links there?
If that's the case, I'll say to you the same that I said to imknown about TCL BBS: thanks, and you can continue to post my roms as long as you keep them updated and don't mirror my links.
If you are not, please ignore.

No, the bencebacsi emax mini TWRP is not valid for TCL M3G. You must use a TCL M3G one. This one should do: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2TGVz17kkbqMGxySEJPVVlhcFk/view

Hi, I have a question regarding the tutorial, I have tried it in 3 diffrent pcs (all with win10 64bit).
I disable driver signature, I install the drivers , I get the QDLoader 9008.
But, when i run QFIL , it sees the phone on the correct port, but the options to backup QCN are not clickable, when phone is in download mode. The only way get the Backup QCN option active is to have the phone booted and running android.
That's the first major problem i have, is the backup I took when android was booted ok?
Anyway, I decided to continue and went on to the next steps but again on this part :
"Start to flash phone:
1.   ChooseFlat Build inSelect build type
2.   ClickBrowse, and choose “prog_emmc_firehose_8936.mbn” , then click search patch
3.   Click Load XML, and choose “rawprogram0_unsparse.xml” , and continue to choose “rawprogram0.xml”
4.   Click“Download”to start

On step 3, when I choose rawprogram0_unsparse.xml and then patch file, when I select after that the rawprogram0.xml and patch again, the unsparse.xml is gone and only the rawprogram0.xml is visible on the "rawProgramm" space of QFIL.

Could you please help me out on those steps, am i doing something wrong?

Thank you in advance for your time and efforts.
Regards
Kanatoly

If you have a stock emax mini ROM, you have to convert the phone, not just flash TWRP. Read the first post.

Edited by varotone at 2016-2-26 00:37 \n\nR4 uploaded.
This build changes default configuration for hardware buttons. If you want to change how they work, just go to Settings > Buttons.

Some information/dev planning:
The next two releases, moreless, will have little to no significative changes that users (you) can notice. This is because I am currently in the process of cleaning up and standardizing my sources (which let's be honest, were pretty messy). You can see in the commit list in my repo that I've already done a lot of that work, but there's a lot to do still.
Once this work is done, I will be able to update and fix things much more quicky and easily. The lack of meaningful changes in the next few releases are a tradeoff for better support in the future.
