    I would try it, but I just had a run in with this phone a couple of days ago. I rooted, then changed the dpi and I was in a bootloop even after hard resetting. SO I'm a little ify

    What about this? Or will this not work because we have a locked bootloader still? http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2250555

    It might possibly work someone would need to test it although you can't flash ROMs only other modifications. I would prefer manually installing because you can back up your files and possibly if you softbrick push them back through adb.

    Edit: But I guess it would be nice to have such a tool just be careful what you flash. Since we will probably never have a recovery we can make a list what is safe to flash.

    I'm still skeptical about this. I don't want to risk it still.

    Hey guys I'm talking to a couple of developer friends from Android Forum from other sections to see if they could give a hand in this section here. I offer a donation if it was a successful one. I'll keep you guys posted. Crossing fingers. :D

    Sorry to inform you guys but one great source have told me that there's no chance of this phone getting a recovery since it's a low budget phone. Bliss could be the one that could make it happened but that been said, Bliss won't waste his time for a device like this one.
    I thought about setting a donation tag/payment to maybe attract the attention of Bliss or someone else capable of doing this but I'm not sure how many users this phone has and are willing to donate/pay because I'm willing to put $20 and if at least 10 people do the same we could offer at least $200 and of course the more the better not sure if that would even work but it's worth the try.

    Every service has a price and when you pay you get the service.

    For now, I will keep using xposed framework and the modules.

    I guess not. I just don't think this thing is going to have the sales volume to make it interesting to developers. It's not a bad phone for $150, other than the camera being pretty bad.

    I have 3 of them and they work fine stock for the most part. I came from a Verizon S3, which had a huge variety of ROMs. But I just couldn't stand Big Red shaking me down every month for $220+ for a family plan any more.

    I used the Tmo promotion of paying off your existing carrier ETFs and got 3 of these to replace an S3, Droid Razr and Droid Bionic. It actually runs better and has a larger screen than the Razr or Bionic. Cheap phones have come a long way.

    I guess a few months down the road I'll sell my Fierce and get a Moto G Google Play edition, which will include KitKat and only costs a little more, and that one is starting to get some ROMs for it.
