Ok. First of all, I bought this phone because of its IP68 ruggedness and its 6GB/64Gb specs. Nothing in the sub-$300 segment compares.
But you're rom, as you know, was complete garbage to begin with. SO the fact that I have to jump thru ANY hoops to fix YOUR crappy work is irritating enough!
Now, lets be clear. I am no pro computer geek, but I certainly know my way around a gadget. I have been rooting and flashing since my second Android device, a Dell Streak 7 from T-Mobile circa 2011. I have flashed my Note 2, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Tab Pro, and a few others that I dont recall. Those were ALL flashed multiple times with multiple versions of Android. In fact, my current tablet is the Tab Pro, which launched with Android 4.3, was abandoned by Samsung with 4.4, and today is still quite useful with Android 7.1. Thanks to LineageOS for keeping my Tab viable! My first computer was an ADAM, with a cassette tape data storage. All the way back in 1984! So, computers and me have a long and productive history.
So, when I saw that I had to manually flash my shiny new BV8000 Pro, I was ok with it, expecting that you people would get the OTA working soon if it isn't already fixed, and I would be able to update it like a normal phone.
I have had this phone for 36 hours now, and if we ignore the garbage rom you shipped it with, I love this phone.
So, i say all that to say, wtf people. My phone clearly has an MTK67xx SoC, right? So HY are you directing me to use MK65xx drivers? Especially since I have ALREADY followed your instructions, using the MK65xx drivers, and IT DID NOT WORK. I watched as Windows Device manager loaded then unloaded the device multiple times before it stopped loading it, and the flashing software could not see my device. THEN, I found MK67xx drivers, and tried those. Same problem.
So, I have reset my laptop, installed only Chrome and Grammarly, and am going thru your supposedly great tutorial from the beginning. And the first problem is the possibility of being instructed to use the wrong drivers (MK65xx) instead of the right ones (MK67xx).
So, heres what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna try it again, and hope it works. If not, you are gonna figure out what the problem is, because if i cant take a fully updated BV8000 Pro to work in the morning, I will go back to my LG Stylo 3 and buy a Samsung phone. I really want this to be a great phone for me, but the garbage you passed off as a good and usable rom makes me wonder if YOU want this to be a great phone.
