For Example, the recovery partition: Start: 0x00010000 Count: 0x00010000

Thanks for this, nightboy! I was reading about the AfterGlow 2, and curious about it. Lo and behold, I can take it for a test drive on my Boyue T62, if I want to!

I was curious about it too until I tested their ROM .

The question is which company has the best android developers ?

I listed 7 devices from different companies so far and I guess more to be added. So, we will have the opportunity to try several ROMs and modify them.


@FOV
Please don't include the kernel. Some users might install it in the wrong device. Boyue T62C's kernel does not work in Boyue T62B & many other devices. Unfortunately, You have uploaded the T62C's firmware. You can simply upload system.img only.

Without editing the Boot partition in Bouye T62B will not be in applications normally be governed by the backlight. If someone will be called a tester, you can create an image for Boyue T62B

The first time you flashed on your device firmware from Onyx, you touchscreen worked? You have what model B or C?
