Hello,
Here is a lot of information about how to flash ROM and install newer Android, but for me the problem is in compatibility of ROM ond Android 7.
Will my ROM 20170112 cooperate to Android 7.0_20170904? If not what sholuld be first installed? ROM or Android
Can I try start Android if have incompatible ROM version?
Thank you for information, maybe questions are not wise, but better to ask, then to generate problem with phone.
Greg

if you follow a tutorial to flash a ROM, it will overwrite the current ROM.
so.... if you flash 20170904, it will replace 20170112.

as you have probably understood from the threads on the forum, Elephone has created a problem so that your phone won't automatically upgrade anymore after 20170112. The only way to upgrade to a newer version of Android, is to flash a newer ROM.

Don't worry about compatibility, or about bricking your P9000.

Backup any important data (and start to treat a smartphone as a data-carrier, not a data-storage) and just try out if you like the Android 7.
If you don't like it, simply flash the ROM you like. It's not a one-way-thing, you know?

Neither can you brick an MKT-phone. No matter what you do wrong during flashing, you can always start again from scratch (formatting the device). because MTK-flashing-tool works with your phone switched OFF.

But I can assure you that the latest Android7-ROM is - simply speaking - the best ROM for the P9000.
If not the only usable one.

Good job :-)

Nice to read that you did it without further problems.

Have you checked your EMEI's, MAC-Adresses and Serial-Number after succesful update?
