If you’re like me you might want to get rid of your Goophone’s heavy iOS skinned user interface and run something more ‘Android-like’. Thanks to Android developer Dcrom you can as he has ported the popular Lewa ROM over to the GooPhone i5.

As well as giving your i5 Android feel and function, the Lewa ROM also brings it’s own Lewa Market (a Chinese app store) and Google’s Play store to the GooPhone i5. There are also some handy features such as a Data plan meter to prevent you running up a large phone bill, a theme choose with various themes to choose from, an anti virus app,  SD card manager, a flash light app, plus a lot of the more useful apps from the original Goophone i5 build.

One of the features I love the most on the Lewa rom are the shortcuts in the notification menu which include a reboot option, rotation toggle, screen lock, fast power off!

The one downside I have found with the Lewa ROM on the GooPhone i5 is the mute switch no longer works, but it is likely to be fixed in a coming update.

    Cool! If only it had an Apple logo, I could go around boasting that I had changed the whole OS.

    @Anexonel any chance of a how to article with some download links?

  • fonix232

    GooPhone actually offers the selection of the back logo, it comes in both flavors (GooPhone and Apple), so if you are lucky, and can find a seller who sells both, then you can do so :D

    Anexonel, by any chance, can you link the stock and LeWa firmwares for the I5?

    Yep, I just need to give it some minor adjustments and It is done!

    Does it also work for the Gooapple? I just ordered one.
    At first I thought about the GooPhone, but it wasn’t available in white.
    So I went for the GooApple. To be honest I don’t mind the iOS interface. Not having the store to download apps bothers me more.
