Elephone S8 20180621_AEROM_v1


Dear friends, we glad to present new firmware update for Elephone S8 model.
Description:
This is AEROM (Alternative Elephone ROM) firmware, based on Android 7.1.1.
Changes (after stock firmware 20171018):
- Optimized proximity sensor
- Optimized camera (recommendation: in Camera settings set to Allow manual exposition, and set exposition to -1 or -2, the camera will work faster)
- Optimized power consumption and battery life
- Optimized stability
- Solved heating problem while simple apps used
- Some other bugs fixed.

Firmware download link:
https://mega.nz/#!Y1IhwI4I!C5tsDsiqGey9ywT7EFPeO8xAgIDXhxjnwNNQOJVP2Ik


Attention!
Please backup your personal data first, make a factory reset and reflash device in Firmware Upgrade mode (instead of usual Download only) in Flashtool.


Firmware update tutorial:
http://bbs.elephone.hk/thread-1037-1-1.html

We recommend to use signed drivers (it will help under Windows 8/10) SP_Driver_v2.0:
https://mega.nz/#!TXwmkChA!deFBUuwUpHJ4e1puwESPo1V4K_9QQlQYiEWBjrjgpCM

Also, you can try to use newer Flashtool SP_Flash_Tool_exe_Windows_v5.1804:
https://mega.nz/#!DCQmEKIA!R8cJrO6kjNfWt5eJKVVIVW5DJeX_2CyQDeu_9fPq-I4

And of course you can try to look some HOW TO tutorial videos, it's usually help in the understanding of the whole process:
- Install MTK (MediaTek Drivers) Windows 10 64 bit & 32 bit - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbJCbdfPlF8
- Flashing all phone android MTK firmware via SP FLASH Tool - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gOLhR-7FGQ
- P9000 Flashing tutorial (for example, the same procedure) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aION0XximwA

Good bye Elephone. Finally got enough money together to buy a new phone. Never again will I touch an Elephone or unknown Chinese brand phone again. Learned my expensive lesson. The s8 hardware wise has some promise and is only let down by buggy software and piss poor support. I don't say this about companies very often but I hope Elephone go out of business so no one else is duped by them into buying an overpriced knock off buggy piece of crap. Good bye

Thank you for keeping up to your promises! It's good to see, that you deliver an update due to the difficult circumstances. But one question: will the phone keep it's mac adress after the update? I had to flash it with flash tools manually and don't know, if I can do this with the new rom

Is this the official firmware from Elephone or custom ROM?  Is this going to be pushed down or will this be the only way to get it.

Well, I installed this time today and besides the good changes on the UI design(like Oreo),it not changed a lot.you can't now video record on 1440p, just on 1080p and that is strange because the video record was not the problem but the camera focus.and I can say that is solved, in my opinion, thankfully.the ram management seems better less ram consumption while on standby and the heat is reduced , less reduced .good overall changes , but not too much.and you retired the wifi update section on settings, hope thats not a bad thing the future.i hope you bring soon the Oreo update.keep the good work and hire some good software delevopers and Android experts.i will be reporting more errors if I encounter them.P.S I only could install this rom with sp flash tools only in download mode not in firmware upgrade, worked anyway,but why it has to be in firmware upgrade mode???

Yea because what I really want to do is spend £250 on a phone and then manually flash a new firmware. Why the hell can we not download and install this new firmware through the phone. Is it by any chance because it's a custom firmware and the phone is still uncertified by Google. So instead of getting the phone certified you just release this half arsed firmware update. Well done Elephone. Way to show everyone what a piece of crap company you really are.

Has anyone else tried this?  Can someone verify if the video resolution is the only bug so far?  Sounds promising thanks to whoever built this.

Of course, it's the unofficial update from Elephone for the S8, they can't launch it on the normal way because the s8 has no google certification
