Are you suffering with LeTV Le1 WIFI bugs?


letv x600 review

As you may all know, I am currently having a love affair with my LeTV Le 1, but the honeymoon period is over and we have had our first major issue.

From day one of opening the LeTV Le1 I have been amazed with the phone. For a company with no background in smartphone design and manufacture LeTV have done a stellar job of producing one of the best Chinese Android smartphones available on the market today. From build quality to ROM optimisation the LeTV Le 1 has continued to impress.

ROM updates have also impressed me too, with performance and bugs being ironed out with every OTA, well up until the latest that is.

I recently updated my LeTV Le1 to the latest available OTA version 5.0.004S (stable release) of the EUI ROM and since then have been having serious WIFI issues. WIFI still turns on but it refuses to stay connected. Iย have tested the WIFI at the office, home and out in various locations with the same results, at the same time my Xiaomi Mi Note and Macbook Pro remain connected without an issue.

Is anyone else suffering from the issue? I have already emailed my contact at LeTV and have submitted a bug report from the LeTV Le 1 from the “Feedback” application and recommend that anyone else with the issue do the same.

    Let’s hope it will be fixed until LeMax availability and sales! ๐Ÿ™

      LeMax is already available in China.
      Many phones were shipped to those who reserved during presale.
      Check the LeTV Chinese forum and you can read many reviews and see photo samples. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        in China, yes, but i’m waiting for the Intl version ๐Ÿ™‚

            • August 8, 2015

            An international version?

            • August 8, 2015

              yup all the way from the USA ๐Ÿ˜€

              @Andy: Ok! This is also suitable for Netherlands? I have one from China, liaow.com. can this be updated to int version maybe?

            • A.R. Kolleman
              August 9, 2015

              Yep it is, only keep in mind that most Dutch providers use band 20 and most Chinese phones like LeTV use band 3 and 7. For short this means that 4G only works on the 1800 and 2600mhz band and not 800. So you have to look which band your provider uses. When your using KPN then you can also use the 1800 and 2600 band but you won’t have as much 4G as you have on the 800mhz band ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hopelijk begrijp je het ๐Ÿ˜‰

              August 10, 2015

              Ik snap je! How is it with vodafone? They use 800? I have 4G in many places now

            • A.R. Kolleman
              August 10, 2015

              Mooi ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just as with KPN Vodafone uses 3 “4G bands”. The 800, the 1800 and the 2600. Keep in mind the most important band is the 800 and the LeTV does not support the 800 band ๐Ÿ˜‰

            • Bogdan Botezatu
              August 8, 2015

              They launched their smartphones in USA?
              Haven’t seen any news about it.

            How did you get int version? Is this available?

            • August 8, 2015

              It’s coming direct from LETV’s US operations

  2. Radek Bartko

    I stay tune on OTA version 5.0.003S and will waiting other stable OTA ๐Ÿ™‚ thx

    August 8, 2015

    Well thats not good news. Just finished ordering…

  4. Hakim Farouk
    August 8, 2015

    The same problem with the 4S but the latest experimental version 17E fixed it for me. You could try. No rooting involved.

    • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
      August 8, 2015

      Where did you get exp version?

      • Hakim Farouk
        August 8, 2015

        It’s on the official forum. (bbs.letv.com/forum-172-1.html) you got to do some google translating though but it’s pretty easy eventho the translation is not spot on. They update the rom on a weekly basis via OTA and the latest 17E has double tap to wake feature, which is nice.

        • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
          August 8, 2015

          Ok that’s nice! All works fine, no issues? If I update, I lose all stuff?

          • Hakim Farouk
            August 8, 2015

            Here’s the link to the rom page. http://bbs.letv.com/thread-778783-1.html.

            Step by step
            1. Just download the zip file and rename the file to update.zip.
            2. Next, just simply transfer the file to your phone via the USB.

            3. Turn of your phone and enter the default letv recovery (Volume up + Power key)
            4. Then just simply flash. you can choose to keep your data (There will be a checkbox option but back up just in case. I didn’t lose mine though)

            Eventho this is official from Letv do flash in at your own risk. For me, no issue. Rom is good and everything works. After the flash you will start to get the weekly updates via OTA. Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜‰

            • August 8, 2015

              Just doing this too, hope it fixes ๐Ÿ˜€

            • Hakim Farouk
              August 8, 2015

              You are going to love the double tap to wake feature. haha. You can return back to the stable version with the same process in the future but i’m not going back. lol! it’s that easy.

            • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
              August 8, 2015

              Haha Ok! I already have double tap on my Find 7. Now have an app on the Letv to wave above the proximity sensor to unlock ๐Ÿ™‚
              But I still try to wake it with double tap haha

            • Hakim Farouk
              August 8, 2015

              Yea, cause i was from Oneplus one and i thought it would be a basic feature on phones by now but apparently Letv didn’t have that included in the rom before until 17E.

            • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
              August 29, 2015

              hi Hakim! in ROM 20E the double tap to wake option has gone…!
              still can use it because the other rom’s had it https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b02514350444e25950ae4d70cd0daf25fb7092dd41dfee3e9a83600c87c12f47.png

            • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
              August 8, 2015

              Ok Hakim thanks! How dir you back up btw? Is there a back up appl in the phone?
              All is further the same as the stable version? Like menu, icons etc?

              And did you place the update in a specific map?

            • Hakim Farouk
              August 8, 2015

              I didn’t back up. haha. I opt out the clear data when i flash so i didn’t lose my data. You could back up via google services.

              Everthing is the same but you get additional features like double tap to wake and etc.

            • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
              August 8, 2015

              Ok maybe I will try to ๐Ÿ™‚ with the weekly update, they tell what is new and will change? I like the way it works now, with the menu button left etc

            • Hakim Farouk
              August 8, 2015

              To activate the double tap go to settings-accessibility (refer to picture)

              I use Action Launcher 3 as well cause it has double tap to sleep feature which compliments the double tap to wake and my lazy fingers. Haha.

            • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
              August 8, 2015

              Haha ok. I use apex launcher with Miu-Miui 6 style icon pack, very nice and smooth!

            • Hakim Farouk
              August 8, 2015

              Yea, Apex and Nova are both good launchers. Can’t never go wrong.

              They do tell you what are the changes tho but you got to go to the forum and google translate it. Cause even for stable version the change log is in chinese.

              If you are into custom roms you can check these Italians out (Google translate requires)

            • Hakim Farouk
              August 9, 2015

              Just place the update.zip at the main page of your storage. Don’t place it in any folders.

            • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
              August 9, 2015

    recieved my letv x600 yesterday and have been playing with it non stop. So far the phone is amazing. Got the 32GB version from pandawill at the cheapest price i could find (ยฃ203) and I am very happy. I updated straight away to latest 4s and have had no such problems with wifi. Had a constant connection with no drop outs so maybe I have just got lucky. Just for reference Im using the 5Ghz wifi at my home and havent tested it else where yet. Hope this helps.

      Locks fast, below minute and don’t lose connection. It feels like qualcoms gps.

    I use Letv 1 pro (X800) with experimental rom (17E) but I cannot double tap to wake the screen (though I turn it on on accesibility). Has anyone them same situation like that?

        In experimental rom you have “double tap to wake”. Settings-> accessibility

    I am using the latest 18E decrapified ROM by BB72 (very recommended!), no problems with WiFi.

    The phone is amazing, my literally only complain I have is substantial battery drain (about 30% per day, it prevents phone from going into ‘deep sleep’ and keeps the CPU@800MHz) due to EINT kernel wakelocks (especially when WiFi is on, but also for cellular radio). This seems to be a problem with all MT67XX chips, had it on Jiayu and Ulefone as well. I kind of lost hope this will be ever fixed in the new kernel by Mediatek, it is probably a desing ‘flaw’ in those chips…

    I might change this phone to One Plus Two if it lives up to the hype, as standby power management and general quality of the kernel code (Code Aurora) is much superior on Qualcomm chips.

    How can I access google contacts on Letv One? It cames with a stock dialer app that asks you to sign in with the Letv account. I’ve tried many different Contacts apps, but I can’t access my google contacts.

    • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
      August 30, 2015

      Hi Af. You have to go to the google installer app (red) and select there the contacts app and dowload it. Then you have all your contacts after a while of synchronizing.
      You have to download the Experimental rom as described in this thread and this:
      https://www.gizchina.com/2015/08/09/how-to-fix-letv-le1-wifi-problems-and-get-double-tap-to-wake/

      • Af Slv
        August 30, 2015

        Thanks for your reply. I canยดt find the google installer app. There is not such app on my phone. I went to Play Store to search it and also no luck. Is it one of those chinese apps ? Also, Iยดve updated my OS to 5S. Is the unofficial rom better than the latest Letv rom ?

        • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
          August 30, 2015

          Af, see my comments and pictures above. When i got my letv le one play store was installed and the google contacts where missing, but i had the google installer in the app row. You don’t have it?

          And yes the experimental rom is better with wifi, and has double tap to wake. Start with the 17E version like described by Hakim Farouk on this thread. After installing you get updates for 18, 19 and the latest 20E

          • Af Slv
            August 30, 2015

            I saw your pics and I donยดt have that app. Canยดt find it on Play Store also. Either way I download a Contacts app and when I select “sign in to an account” it only shows 2 Letv accounts : “Corporate” and “Letv Account” though I have a google account set on my “System settings”. It makes no sense I canยดt access my google account on any app and it is on Account-Settings.

            • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
              August 30, 2015

              Strange. All the other google settings are there? You won’t finf the app in play store, it has to be installed on the phone when installing play store and other google apps. Have you looked for another google contacts app in play store, so youcan at least synchronize Your contacts?
              I will look how to get google installer app

            • Lars-Peter Dijkstra
              August 30, 2015

              Maybe you can install the experimental rom 17e and see if the installer app is there? Its very easy to do

      Actually the Quick Charger USB C is designed this way what you can do is get an alternative charger & do fast charging for 15mins every 6 hours or so… & you’ll be good…, Our habits have to change a little as I also face the same Issue- Used to charge my phone overnite & it gave 3 days backup (MI3- a WOW phone it was)… replaced the screen once & things were never the same & washed the product then decided to Get Le1s, probably should have waited a little longer for MI Note3. Anyways will try to procure a spare charger.(&suggest you the smae)
