hi
this is a simple guide to make sure you never break you software side of the vernee mars, and stop depending on the shitty firmware vernee made.
(you will flash a different system and a recovery mode, and unlock the bootloader)
why? even a buggy version of lineageOS is better than vernee's stock rom.
EVEN that version.why? vernee could have just given us a blank phone without a OS installed on it and gotten away.
and don't do it if you don't want to.
it fixes:
-the fingerprint sensor (but can also break it for a while, just play around with the settings like the original ROM and by that i mean delete and add a fingerprint)
-shitty 3g and lte connection (people had it on the original ROM, here it should be fixed)
-sound bug (connect wired headphones and see how it works, by playing music you will know what i mean)
-your shitty warranty you never had
keep noted:
-this will void your warranty (be honest, you never had one that would work)
-i have no responsibility if you fuck something up
-pls trust a dead mem
-


so, let's start
1. BACKUP YOUR DATA!
(and the preloader if you can)


2. download these files:
i have all of the files needed in a convenient .rar, but it's too big (2gb even tho the upload size is unlimited)
so i'm gonna put links to- fuck, needrom is now paid?!
time to register to fileshare...

http://fileshare.link/72f2a2b5211e1d8e/android_stuff.rar
Download Gapps of your choice (google apps package, lineageOS doesn't come with them)

these are links to the ROM's (systems, your entire device)
and platform tools, we're gonna unlock the bootloader with them.

IF THE PHONE IS FUCKED:
(it's in here so people don't get confused mid-process)
open sp flash tool
click format
plug in your phone
you have a blank canvas
plug it off
(aka.a brick)
flash the nougat ROM (extract it and then select the scatter inside it and plug in your phone again)
boom
done
follow some guide to change IMEI assuming you backed it up (if you didn't don't scream that you can't call anyone with it, it's your fault)


3.Get ready
make a backup of your apps and IMEI
(if you want to make calls and legaly use the phone in your country)
open SP flash tool
MAKE A BACKUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BACKUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4. the fun part

enable OEM unlock in developer settings
(spam build number in about phone until it says you're a developer)
go into the settings right above phone info
check enable OEM to be unlocked
Power off your mars, and hold power + vol up
a menu will pop up
get into fastboot, it's most likely already selected
(it's controlled by volume keys!)
plug in your vernee to a working PC
open platform-tools inside the android stuff .rar
hold shift and right click
click open command window here
a console will pop up
type this:

fastboot devices
a server should start, after it does, type
fastboot devices
again
you should see some random numbers and a FASTBOOT mark right next to them
if not, download fastboot USB drivers from
https://romprovider.com/2018/02/vernee-usb-driver-download/
if it still doesn't work, then i dunno
if it does pop up,
then type:
fastboot oem unlock
a menu on your phone should pop up without a key prompt (that's what happened for me)
click vol up
your data will be erased, that's normal
if you didn't make a system backup, THEN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
backup your IMEI once again (it's never a bad thing)
unplug your vernee mars from the PC or laptop
now start the SP FLASH TOOL and power off your phone
extract the marshmallow ROM because if you try flashing lineage on nougat it will give you a grey brick
select the scatter file in there
all of the fields should be filled
unplug your phone (sp flash tool will freeze, either wait or turn it back on fresh and repeat the steps)
click download
plug your phone in (otherwise the phone won't get the files flashed on if the phone already is plugged in)
if it gives an error, please go back and don't try again
when it's successful, and the device boots, then YAY!
now power it off again, and go to fastboot again
unlock the bootloader
(...)
power it on and off again
open sp flash tool again
there's a scatter file located in the android stuff folder (scatters > vernee mars> mt6755 or something like that)
make sure nothing is selected
add the TWRP marshmallow recovery located in android stuff (
click download
now power the phone on
transfer the GAPPS zip and the lineage file onto the device
power it back off
hold power + up
after that select recovery
it should boot into TWRP
now, there's the even more fun part
backup yo- oh yeah you're running on the wrong ROM so don't backup
click install on the main TWRP menu
select the lineage OS file
click select another or whatever it says
select the Gapps
click install
after it's done, click wipe cache/dalvik (ROM WON'T BOOT IF YOU DON'T DO IT!)
power on the device
it should be a different boot animation
if it bootloops, power it off by holding power button
go to flash tool and flash the NOUGAT rom
after it's done, either when recovering back to nougat or flashing lineage,
you should have Gapps if you selected it to install it on lineage
download an app called Ghost phone or any IMEI changer since you can't change it (via engineer mode) if the bootloader is unlocked
change the imei back to what it was before
DONE!
now restore all the stuff you backed up on TWRP

PROBLEMS YOU MAY HAVE:
i can only say that if you have booted lineage for the first time then it may display some "has stopped" errors. try rebooting or clearing cache and data again
otherwise idk

Hello. How about magnetic sensor and GPS? Any problems with these? The original Mars had these screwed as well... :/

GPS works for the most part, but is not that accurate (can show your location a few streets away or not work)
and the magnetic sensor works
oh, and the build is made by the_marionette at github and xda devs. not me.
also, expect lineage 15.1 (android 8.1) to pop up in a few months since i'm trying to make it.
