Unbranded A10 project - FAW & Wiiteer

Z32 Pro firmware (LEM12 Pro) Android 10 firmware – FAW style, unbranded.

Hi Everyone,
We have something to share with you and we hope you will like it :blush:

As some of you know – this forum has great support from the solution provider for these watches. We have been working together as friends for many years now. They are called Wiiteer from Shenzhen. They provide us with great firmware support and help us by introducing us to the various brands that you all know.

Over the years we have been listening to all the feedback from you guys for all this time. Things that don’t work and things you would like to see added etc.

Well, we have gained the trust of our friends and they have allowed us to work with them remotely, under license, using their Chinese based environment.
Together, we have produced a unique Android 10 “international” firmware that addresses your problems with the previous default apps.

Wiiteer, @none and I have spent a long time overcoming the remote working challenges to achieve this. If this firmware is well received, then it may be used for other models. If the brands are happy with your feedback. This also means that if any issues are found – they may be corrected to improve the experience.

DISCCLAIMERYou use this firmware by choice.

You accept full responsibility if you damage your device by making a mistake . This will ONLY work on the LEM12 Pro model at the moment. It may work on the Lokmat equivalent – but we have not tested it. It has been thoroughly tested on the LEM12 Pro. Do NOT try to flash the TWRP from stock on this!!

The Lemfo product team know we are posting this – but it is NOT official Lemfo firmware !!

So, stuff that has changed - this includes things like:
Stock Android File Manager – much more functional than the previous one – remember to enable internal storage view by using the 3 dot menu – top right in the app.
Google Calendar,
Google dialer phone app,
Google contacts,
Google messages – including advanced functionality like Wi-Fi calling and instant messaging,
Google assistant – installed and now available by long press the back (lower) button.
Full permissions manager and granular control over permissions.

Any other apps that don’t need system permissions can be installed – by choice.
All previous custom apps are removed.

Task cleaner in the widget section never really worked in Android 10. The task cleaner is in the long press power menu.

To make sure play services app is up to date (after you have signed into Google) you can go to Settings/Apps and Notifications/All apps/Google Play Services and tap on the version details – it will take you to the update page.
All synchronization is working and can be easily controlled.

Then there are some functions added after many member requests:

double tap to wake
Adjustable font size (global)
Nav bar integration allowing “add or edit APNs” in a new square mode.
The layout can still be switched to full screen from the “long press power button menu.”
The Power Menu is now Long Press on an icon operated.
Other subtle features like the four-step brightness control in “quick settings” and long press on most of these “quick settings will take you to the related sub menus now.

Dark mode is fully implemented.

The weather app is working fine and utilizes Google Location Accuracy. The first-time weather is used it will need to obtain location – so GPS can be enabled to achieve this on first run. After this only Wi-Fi is needed because the Location Accuracy function caches your data.

All dependence on Chinese web services is removed to prevent issues with other locations worldwide.
The WiiWear app is still functional but the ability to disable it along with the BT broadcast traffic related to that app is now available in the Assistant app.
Apps like Watch Droid are fine and highly recommended.

Possibly one of the most important things to note is that now the firmware is operating more like Android intended – standby battery life can be up to 5-6 days. We get over 4 days even when Wi-Fi is enabled and google is signed in. Of course – this will vary in use cases, but it is a significant improvement.

Please feel free to try it out.

Use the firmware upgrade option in the Flash Tool as the user-data will be wiped.
EDIT - seems that mistakes can be made and please please do NOT use format all + download !!
If you do this, your IMEI and MAC addresses will be gone :frowning:
If you have any doubts about using the “Firmware Upgrade” option then you can use “Download Only” - but I strongly advise a factory reset after because this is not a minor change. It is very different in many ways and so a reset after “Download Only” or using “Firmware Upgrade” option is best - in my humble opinion :slight_smile:

Give as much feedback as possible here and we try to keep up :blush:

Don’t forget – please read up on how to flash using SP Flash Tools if you are not familiar with it.

Hope you enjoy it.

Yes. I love double tap to wake! And Universal Launcher and watchdroid are not longer effected from square mode. That’s great! Battery life is incredible now. Better then my mobile!

Could anyone upload a video of this firmware? I hope they develop it for the Kospet Prime 2 as well. Congratulations on your work :+1:

I hope the screen on timer has also been fixed. Sometimes e.g. when trying to switch off in the evenings, I long press power, touch power off and before I can press OK, the screen goes black !?
Same happens randomly during normal use. Seems the screen on timer is not effectively reset by each user interaction…

Kospet is already engaged with Wiiteer (who makes their firmware anyway) regarding using this as a base for their international customers outside China.
Let’s wait and see what happens, and for now focus just on this topic and feedback for it.
Thanks

Sounds like your screen timeout is set to 15 seconds in display settings and maybe it should be 30 ?
Anyway that’s OT - why don’t you try this and see how it goes?

I wish Lem14 can use this firmware sometime. Great job guys. Thank you.

This looks amazing but have really been trying to avoid flashing my watch if I don’t have to. Sadly universal launcher has it’s shortcomings so i might. Regardless. Can anyone post a video of them using the software so I can see if it’s worth it? Then I’ll flash asap. Thank you.

Believe me, it’s worth it. But I’m not going to produce a video to convince you. :wink:

Thank you pal I’ll be waiting patiently. I’m glad to hear about the longer battery life even if it’s just on standby. Hope it’s also during while the watch is running too. This firmware with universal launcher seems like it’ll be crazy. Thanks again

Its amazing . We have tested for ages and its the best ever . Trust us
