Zopo release sources for Zopo ZP999


zopo zp999 source

At the release of the Zopo ZP999 customers called out for the sources of the phone so that they could fix the various software issues for it. It might have taken the better part of a year, but finally Zopo have released sources for the device.

The Zopo ZP999 was the flagship Zopo for the latter half of last year, and was based on the ZP998 from the previous year. The ZP999 was actually quite a well made phone with good hardware, but suffered from poor ROM optimisation and lack of updates.

Now the phone has been replaced with the newer Speed 7 series, but people who bought the phone can now hope developers will pick up their cause and produce custom ROMs using the recently released sources.

Anyone who hopes to build their own ROM or just fix the existing one can download the ZP999 source via the official Zopo site here.

    The Zuk Z1 was near making me really happy but for it I would trade the 64gb memory for 32 if I can get a microSD card reader instead and a cheaper SoC maybe mktHeliosX10 as maybe (I’m guessing here) is cheaper than the Q-SD801. I would forgive the lower Mpx back camera if time proves it to be any good, and keep dreaming about a decent flash for the front camera if it deserves it. Those are my 2 grains of salt. Cheers

      Nubia Z7 max pretty mutch nails the requirements for that, also has a better battery life then you would expect from a 3100mah battery

        Nubia does not support LTE band 20. So it is basically unusable in Europe for LTE.

        Also the size not bigger then 5.0″ is very important for me.

          Here you are again… Scavenging for the perfect budget device

            Still looking and waiting. 🙂 Having an open source code is big advantage in my eyes. And the fact the Zopo really released the source code leans me towards buying a phone from them (the 5″ Speed 7).

          Here in the netherlands t mobile uses 1800MHz for 4g so we can have all China phones!

            Even outside of cities? The frequency 800 MHz can reach to a greater distance so it is used in the country (where LTE matters because in cities you have 3G).

            But Netherlands can be specific since the whole country is absolutely flat. 🙂

    to me it looks like a pathetic way to get rid of their old stock.
    too late Zopo,none would spend time on working on a old phone because by the time they come out with something decent it might take months.

    hopefully they will release the code for their new phones at launch, and not over a year later.

      Yep it needs to be a policy on ALL code.
