    My imei number is no longer numerical, it’s alphabetic . I tried the mtk Engineermode. But its not working. I tried to use the SN Write tool(pc). But I really don’t know how to use it. Does anyone have solution.

  15. Kevin says

    In Stock ROM you can choose SD card as default write, but in this ROM Internal is only Write option, so it takes that much space (from your apps and media files).

  16. Kevin says

    4G working only on SIM2 , if you want it for sim 1 flash nvram file they provided in the source of 4pda. (do it on your own risk).

  17. Kevin says

    Go to Settings -> Location -> Google Location History -> ON (and check your lenovo P1m)
    Then it will work fine

    1. K3 Fe(CN)6 says

      First SIM only 2G works. Second SIM is Auto 2G/3G (No 4G)………….No fixes yet

      1. Waqar Ahmed says

        Mine 2nd slot shows 3g for sometime and then reverts back to 2g.

        1. K3 Fe(CN)6 says

          Try gravitybox if Xposed is installed

  23. Antara Bhadra says

    Do both the sims work fine with this ROM?

    1. K3 Fe(CN)6 says

      Yes, but with sim1 you will get 2g only, in the second Sim you will get 2g and 3g (no 4g, I get 4g on my mi4i)

  24. Maneesh Singh says

    Yes hotspot is working perfectly fine, you can use shareit and other file transfers programs normally. Bluetooth is also working. When your device boot for first time with this os you will get option to change to English in one of the configuration steps.

  26. sparker0i says

    Just installed this ROM Yeaterday:

    Flashed TWRP…..Stock ROM never loaded since then because of an SELinux setting. Workaround is to go to fastboot mode, go to recovery mode from there, wipe data….Then go to stock ROM…In this way both TWRP and Stock ROM are retained
    Installed CM12: Awesome. Hotspot working. LED Not working….One more bug, In Phone info (after dialing ##4636##), Network mode is set to GSM Only (and the option to change is greyed out). Workaround is to put your SIM in the SIM2 slot….You’ll get 3G for 5-10 mins (slow speed), then will go back to 2G….

  27. sparker0i says

    Bro, are you sure? Hotspot not working was the only thing preventing me……Can we create hotspot from Xender/ShareIt for file transfers?
    Is Bluetooth working?
    How did you change to English from Russian language?

  28. Prakhar Bharti says

    Battery backup?…what is the full time on battery and what is the screen on time?

  29. Maneesh Singh says

    Hotspot is fixed but Led lights are still not working for me.

  37. Alvino Lavieri says

    I have a bug about sd card. When I want to move my apps to sd card there is “Couldn’t move app. Not enough storage space” I have 32gb. Help please!

  38. ram says

    Is there any git for kernel, device, vendor packages for vibe p1m so that we can contribute in fix bugs and recompile to achieve a much more stable version.

  39. kentchev says

    I couldn’t find leds settings in that rom – CM12.1.
    Maybe i’ll try AICP. is it stable? After unplug does it sleep or it hangs?

  40. Peter Kovacs says

    I’ve flashed it, it’s a good rom, no bugs, BUT after a while my phone stops going to deep sleep when the screen is off…. same problem like with the stock rom, i’ve tried many things without results.. Anyone a solution?

    1. kentchev says

      Same here, good rom, but battery life is worse than stock. Phone sleeps after reboot for 2-3 hours and then it stops.
      I found 2 problems:
      1. WiFi is always on. Even when I choose never to keep it on during sleep. Even when I turn off the WiFi it actually doesn’t turn off. On the BetterBatteryStats it shows it always on and keeping phone awake. I had to disable “Scanning always available” to turn it off.
      2. “leds wakelock” i don’t know what this is and I haven’t found how to stop it. I guess it is something for led notifications, but no settings for something like this.
      If anyone knows how to solve those please help.

      1. Kovács Péter says

        I’ve got a solution for the “leds.wakelock” ! You should turn off the notification led totally, somewhere in the settings you can find it i think (on AICP rom there is a setting) After that, the phone sleeps properly, but when charging it’s always awake i don’t know how to fix that.

    2. Aaditya Menon says

      Does Hotspot feature work?

      1. Peter Kovacs says

        Currently i’ve got the AICP rom, its basically the same as the CM rom, and it has got a working hotspot, but the battery life is awful to… Moreover when charging, the phone is always awake. This phone is useless with this awake problems..

  41. Aaditya Menon says

    Is the hotspot working(unlike the bug in the first build) ? And also can we change from Russian?

    1. Pascoal Soares says

      no updates about the hotspot , but the language can be definitely changed from Russian to your preferred locale

      1. Aaditya Menon says

        Please do verify that….I am pretty eager to test this build on my phone….Hotspot is really needed for me, for content sharing apps like Xender and ShareIt….Its a really important feature for me , that’s why I am asking..

        1. Pascoal Soares says

          Hotspot is not working…………… if u need hotspot then dont flash this ROM… otherwise for battery and performance its a great ROM

          1. sameer says

    1. sameer says

  61. Aaditya Menon says

    Is there no option to create an hotspot?

  62. Saurab007 says

    Those are the fake sites saying about the marshmallow update for p1m

  63. SAGAR says

    Dear , I flashed this ROM but there is no WifiHotspot or USB Tethering option in it.
    And I feel laggy in using , so I disabled all animation and such things so it becomes more quick.
    Some sites says Marshmallow is out for P1m but the links on that site were not working. Do u ‘ve any idea about that.

    1. Veer Amrit Singh says

      Install pdanet+

  64. Frantisek says

  66. Prag says

    I love the rom…but hotspot not connecting…😢😢

  67. Pascoal Soares (@pascoals) says

    have you any idea if there will be periodic updates for the same ? or one needs to flash the rom with a stable build later on when the updates are ready ?

  68. Pascoal Soares (@pascoals) says

    does not have the schedule power on off feature. when battery saver mode is toggled , the data dose not start automatically , have to reboot the phone. other than that i like the rom better than the stock rom………..i hope this unofficial mod rom will get periodic updates.

  69. Prag says

    What kind of bugs??

  70. Prajwal says

    Hotspot not connecting to any device…
    Any one facing this??

  71. Pascoal Soares (@pascoals) says

      Yes there is a hope that it will get a marshmallow based custom rom.

  72. Asep says

    1. Veer Amrit Singh says
