Can you anyway flash ROM packages? I mean if you flash a different ROM version on your phone, will ...

I got the phone with V3.01_20161117, TWRP recovery was not working so I upgraded to V3.01_20161209, which I´m  currently using, TWRP recovery still not working. So yes flashing a different ROM did work. I´ll download V.3.01_20161019 and try to downgrade and try if TWRP recovey is working with this build.
UPDATE:
Flashing ROM V3.01_20161019, downloaded from here, does not work (using Firmware update in SPFT, no errors). Everything seems to work on the phone (vibrates, home button, touch screen, sound) but I can see nothing! The screen is black but lighting! So I tried flashing back to V3.01_20161209 and its working fine. Then I tried going back to V3.01_20161019 and have the same issue with the lighting black screen. Then tried V3.01_20161209 again and it works.
Assuming the ROM V3.01_20161019 from here is fine, what could be the problem?
UPDATE 2:
Now I tried Factory Reset, then just flash preloader, then flash everything (SPFT Firmware upgrade) and still the same problem with ligthing black screen, eveything else seems to work fine. (V3.01_20161019)
Next I will try flashing V3.01_20161009
UPDATE 3:
When flashing V3.01_20161009, I have the same probelm as with build V3.01_20161019, everythings seems to work except the screen. Only V3.01_20161209 is working except the TWRP recovery. Any suggestions? Thanks

Edited by Azuraël at 2016-12-19 11:08 \n\nHey, I've got something really weird here.
I just tried again, and for a reason I cannot find :

-There's the "you-hooked-something" sound, the phone appears in the Device Manager as not working properly;
-After a few seconds, there's the "Oh-you-removed-it" sound, the phone is not in the Device Manager anymore;
-Harlequin LED turns on in red (charging colour) and even the screen is showing a battery icon, then the animation of charge (it's at 0% for now)
-After a few moments, as if the phone hadn't brick, screens turns off. I can switch it on again with Power button.
-I waited a few moments. Then, I tried turning it on.
AND IT F**KING TURNS ON
WTF

Well, I guess I won't try to start SPFT anymore.
Nether.
EDIT:
I guess it seemed bricked because the battery was at 0%, but 2 things are strange:
-The phone had already been connected to the computer several times, sometimes for hours, but it makes this only now, as I just plugged it in;
-The battery was at 90% or so when the pronlem occured, it seems weird to me that it's already hitting the 0 without being turned on... ?

Hi there. The latest TWRP image for UMI Rome X does not work and give a black screen and then it boots up into the OS. I have tried everything out there - I tried MTK Droid Tools to make a new CWM recovery but it seems it doesn't work with lollipop. I have the latest ROM for UMI Rome X and I would appreciate it if you gave me an updated version of the recovery image, using the new boot.img of the latest ROM. Please respond ASAP and thanks in advance.

Hi,
I've added a newer, TWRP 3.0.2 recovery to the list. It should work but I cannot check it without a test device.

Unfortunately, this one also gives a black screen and then boots into system. There's no worries - I can start to compile a CWM custom recovery for this phone from source and then I will most probably move on to porting/making AOSP roms for this device. I feel like there is a lack of development and too many so-called reported 'bugs' with the stock version.

If I make a working CWM recovery, would you be happy to be notified and maybe add the working new recovery to the list as these ones already listed do not work with 3.0.5?

Does the newer one you have added use the kernel (boot.img) from the latest release or are you unaware?
