I bought a smartphone in China, is an OPPO r5, the smartphone has the following settings:

  • 4 GB RAM
  • Android version: 4.4.2
  • Kernel version: eight core MT6592
  • Compilation number: MTK 6592
  • Personal compilation version: A3SE_AX_CHT_MTZ_4G_V1.1_20141105114604

But when I tap in the android version appears JellyBean Logo (weird because 4.4 is kitkat), when i restore the phone, apears with applications extra and uses 3GB of RAM (without applications starting, and due to this the phone is very slow). The question is if i can install a 'pure version' of kitkat or jellybean version (also a mod) so the smartphone will be faster? Note: Ir has been checked with antutu and cpuz, is an oppo adn it has an octacore and 4GB ofrece RAM

    Though I don't have an answer for you, XDA Developers has a great development community where you may find what you're looking for. Good luck!

There are a few things which don't sound quite right.

  1. 4GB RAM - The Oppo R5 has 2GB RAM build in.
  2. "eight core MT6592" - R5 uses an Snapdragon SOC. MT6592 is an Mediatek SOC.
  3. The Android version. It doesn't matter which version is shown in the system information. It's a simple edit in /system/build.prop. Everyone can write whatever they want.

With these things in mind I think you have bought a fake R5. So can you change to Cyanogenmod? No. By installing the cyanogenmod for the official R5 you might brick your device as the kernel is not fitting your hardware.

  • It's an original OPPO (the startup) and it has 4GB (check it with CPUz), it's clear it could be a fake r5. Is it possible install it kitkat or not? Aug 7, 2015 at 19:38
  • Well I don't think it is possible just by the fact that I can't tell for sure if you have an original Oppo R5. The hardware differs alot so I think its a fake phone. Because of this you won't be able to find a rom for your specific device so again, no, you can't install kitkat. What you CAN do is to make a benchmark (antutu benchmark in the playstore) and give us your test result. That way we can have a look at the actual performance and it might be easier to tell if it is fake.
