Elephone working on their own “Ele Flash” tool for easy ROM installation

Elephone are working on their own PC suite which will allow owners of Elephone phones quickly, and easily update their devices with updates or custom ROMS.

Flash tools are nothing new in the Chinese phone market. At one point most Chinese brands offered their own PC tool for maintaining phones, with some 3rd party companies producing systems for multiple devices.

For the international market a similar tool hasn’t been so easy to come by, but after UMi released its RootJoy tool a few weeks back we are seeing other brands jump on the wagon and offer something of their own.

These screenshots come from Elephone’s own version of a PC Suite named “Ele Flash”. The system is still in development but from the images we can gather that the tool will let users backup, and arrange their storage, and install optional ROM’s with a simply click of a button.

In the menu there are already options for CyanogenMod, MIUI, EMUI, Lewa and Flyme ROMS, with more options to be added in the future.

Elephone say that their tool will be initially released for just their own phones, but in the future they hope to add support for all phones with a Mediatek chipset. We will bring you more news as we get it.

    I love this idea. Elephone was a company I used to be very skeptical about due to numerous reports of quality with their devices. But recently they are winning me over with each new announcement. The P7000 is looking like a very good flagship alternative, the P6000 gets rave reviews from everyone I know who has used it. And now the option to easily flash MIUI. I have been looking for a new company to use as a workphone for some time now. This may be it.

        Bezels don’t bother me. Some guys like things a little thicker ;).

    So excited, if I get bored about Original UI, I can try CM, then MIUI, Color OS after that. Elephone takes advantage of all the software that’s existing and bring us more choices. It’s definitely Pioneer that separates the hardware and software of smartphones. The battle field of Chinese is not only about specs and price anymore, it’s more about users’ experience.

    Very excited for the gizchina hands-on and reviews for the Elephone P7000 and the Ulefone Be Touch! My next phone will be one of these two unless UMI can deliver a new competitive flagship soon. ??

      What about the Umi Emax? It has the same MT6752 as the P7000, just with 2GB of RAM instead of 3GB.

        The UMI EMAX looks nice when compared to the JIAYU S3 or iocean rock, especially with the nice EMAX battery size, but I really would prefer the extra bump to 3GB RAM or more since I am constantly bouncing between multiple apps, spreadsheets, PDFs, and web browsing. Would be nice not to have to clear apps so often. But what is enticing to me (but maybe not to so many others) are the touch ID sensors on the P7000 and Be Touch. I understand the fingerprint privacy debate, but I see the feature as convenient and useful for me. UMI seems to be playing catch-up instead of pioneering the next gen of Chinese smart phones, which is sad because I am a big fan of Umi since the Cross, as definitely with the Zero. Time will tell. 🙂
