Firmware Upgrade for Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt

Apr 5, 2013

There are news that the HD Quadcore Tablet experiences lags and constantly hangs unless you have the latest firmware upgrade.
AskHediki.com shows us a tutorial on how to upgrade your Cherry mobile fusion bolt. But if you do this, you are on your own. You may void the warranty you have with Cherry Mobile since you are flashing its ROM.

But if you would want to tune up your FuBo, then by all means go for it.

Here are some screenshoots when your Fusion Bolt is upgraded to the Ainol Novo7 Venus Lite firmware.

  1. Any unwanted performance/side effects after the upgrade?

    1. Most of those who updated the firmware had greater useability of the slate and it improved performance. However, some apps from Cherry Mobile like the Cherry Market were gone. Titanium backup would also crash on this. This upgrade would let you feel the speed performance of a quad-core. Another thing when you do this, you will surely void your Cherry Mobile warranty. Hope I was of help. Thank you for commenting.

  2. Natatakot akong i-root ang fubo ko pero gusto ko tlg ng root para gumana yung poweramp na dl ko .. pls help

    1. In my opinion, ok lang iroot. However, you will void the warranty given to you by Cherry Mobile and if may ma-erase ka na vital files/folders sa Fubo talagang hindi gagana yan. Maliban na lang kung magflash ka ng default or custom ROM for your Fubo.
      Advantage if nakaroot: you have admin rights. You can use poweramp or other apps that need rooting rights. Mas bibilis pa ang components ng hardware.
      Sana I was of help and if you have clarifications please feedback. :)

    1. Thank you for asking Genxy.
      Main difference: Flare is a PHONE. Bolt is a TABLET.

      Flare can be used for varied reasons. You can text, call and all the other things common to a cellular phone, Bolt cannot.

      Bolt is for a little gaming and work-related tasks. Main advantage of having a Bolt, from my perspective is that it has HDMI port. HDMI port can be used in projectors. Something really convenient for me as a teacher.

      Ask yourself Genxy, are you looking for a phone or a tablet? Hope I was helpful. :)

      Delete
    2. @Genxy for me I choose the Bolt over Flare...why?
      1. Bolt is a quad core device versus Flare's dual core.
      2. Screen: 7 inches is way better than a 4 inches screen especially in movie playback and browsing.
      3. Camera, who cares about taking a picture using flare's 5mp cam. Always remember this, it's not all about the megapixels when it comes to taking good pictures.
      4. Battery: Bolt has 4000mAh versus Flare's 2100mAh.
      5. Phone Function: Definitely, flare is the sure winner, but you can always install Viber if you want to text and call using your Bolt.

      I hope this will help you decide:)

    1. You are right Dodong. :) But if you don't need a new phone, Go for the Fusion Bolt. Best specs so far for affordable tablets.

  5. By the way, the Fusion Bolt is already rooted when purchased from Cherry Mobile. :) That is an advantage.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sir, I purchased the Bolt last month and don't know anything about it being rooted and everything. I'm a newbie in rooting also. If I upgrade the firmware, does that mean rooted na sya?

      Thanks po from Sapphire3D

      Delete
    2. Pre-rooted na po ang Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt pagkabili mo. :) If iupgrade mo ang firmware mas magiging smooth ang Fusion Bolt mo. :)

  6. Hi sir Nico...I'm kinda dumb when it comes to firmwares and programs...just want to ask what u mean by "already rooted"? Just bought my fubo 3 weeks ago for the price of 4,500 in a CM store...tnx a lot sir

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for asking. :) First question, why is the price Php4,500? :D
      Anyways, rooted means that you have access to all the folders that are vital to the android system. Or you can also say that you have administrator rights.
      Caution lang if rooted, do not erase folders or files that you think are vital. Because if you erase folders that are vital sure ako hindi mo na yan magagamit. :)
      Advantage/s: You can install apps that needs rooting access. Aside from that, if you are into customizing or programming you can easily change the default settings on your device.
      Sana I was clear enough. hehehe

      Delete
    2. Tnx a lot for the reply side nico..yeah, I really don't know why it's 4,500..pwede kya i-reklamo gun sa CM office and get my 500 back? He he
      Nywayz, sir would u advise having an ainol novo lite fw or just leave my fubo fw untouched? Tnx sir

      Delete
    3. Maybe you can ask them why the price is Php4,500? I do not know if money back ba... :)
      Hmmm if I owned the Fubo no doubt I will install the Ainol Novo FW. But if you have no experience in flashing ROMs huwag po. Baka mabrick yang tablet mo. Ilang months ba warranty nyan?

      Delete
  7. Rooted na sya by CM mismo, check may superuser na icon sa tab mo...BTW, how come 4500...i bought mine at 3999 sa may CM kiosk at Waltermart Makati last friday and its not rooted.

    1. If makikita mo ang folder with the name Android, rooted yan. You are right download mo lang super user sa Google Play Store. I had different tablets since the Eclair to Froyo pa ang Android but I stopped because it was useless and battery hunger. Hassle cge lang ng charge. Next android I purchased is the Flare. Hoping to tinker with the Fubo soon. :)

    1. I advice you to bring your phone to CM technicians. Sila na bahala dyan sa unit. I would not recommend you to do it yourself since I am sure warranty pa lang. :)

      Delete
  11. @Kurt kung ang unit mo wala pang 7 days pwede magrequest for replacement pero kung lagpas na go to the nearest CM Service Center and let it diagnosed sice less than a year pa yan...i just hope you didn't root your tablet otherwise void warranty mo nyan...and also the receipt and warranty card din.

  12. @nico No problem bro, just here to help fellow FuBo users...Verified, pre-rooted na ang CM Fusion Bolt. ko. They really removed the SU apk...what I did was I installed SuperUser by ChainDD and Root Checker from Google Play. Open Root Checker then click allow access to SuperUser...then wait for a few seconds for the result...Don't worry, this will not void your warranty. Can't wait to flash Ainol Venus Lite FW:)

  14. Hi ung number 6:/ which is Select all the three .img files namely: misc.img, rec.img, and system.img. This part is very important, be sure to select all those three as failing to do so will leave your Fusion Bolt tablet unable to boot. di mas yadong clear sa kin.. baka mabrick ko ung FUBO.. yari ako.. paki clear naman po. thanks

My first after impression after booting was, what the F...the language is set at Chinese characters...I just play with the setting until I finally found the Language Option...so far, it more stable than the stock ROM...no lags at all.

    3. vinci24 is right. There are videos on youtube that explains it clearly. Congrats vinci24! You are fortunate that your tab survived the flashing..hahaha Salamat talaga sa tulong. Rooted na ba ang FW 0328?

    6. @nico yes may superuser na kasi sya...actually the FuBo was already rooted, so after flashing the device there's no need to root it again since its pre-rooted na. been to that bricked thing with my xperias before so di na ako takot kung paano buhayin si FuBo kapag nabricked...that's the reason why i'm asking if there's a copy of the stock rom. need mo kasi yung for reflashing. anyway thanks to your blog for posting those links...i'll try to flash the 4.2.2 ROM than i'll update the difference between 0328FW...enjoy ko muna sya para malaman difference. maglalaro muna ako Real Racing 3...

    ReplyDelete
  21. @anonymous how come e kakabili ko lang nung sunday nang FuBo white version...pre-rooted na sya...regarding sa RAM kasi yung iba nagamit or ginagamit na ni FuBo...Install SuperUser by ChainDD then install Root checker..Run checker and allow access to Superuser...dyan mo makikita kung may root access ang unit mo...this is my honest opinion regarding CM Android phones...lahat sila prerooted kasi yung Flare ko...the way how to update it is the same lang nang process in Flashing it, meron syang Recovery...syempre iba rin yung way kapag ginamit mong pang-flash e yung kay CyanogenMod. this is just my opinion based on my personal experiences regarding rooting, flashing, moddings, etc sa android phones.

    1. Thanks sir.. but did this..
      ".Install SuperUser by ChainDD then install Root checker..Run checker and allow access to Superuser..."
      and it didn't work. Tried 3 versions ng Su User to no avail.

      I know a few things about rooting. Na root ko ung Moto Defy + ko na nka lock pa nga ung bootloader and currently running on custom rom. Actually mga 1 week lng ata nka stock rom at custom rom flashing galore na til now. LOL

      Bdw, nung 3 days ago ko nabili ung FuBo ko, black.

    2. Re RAM. I was referring to the total amount nung RAM. 1Gb nkalagay eh d nga mka 700Mb. Tas lag pa parati eh ung fon ko na 480+mb lng ang RAM nkakahinga pa ng maluwang. hehe..
      Ung ROM nya 1Gb tlg n my konteng bawas from system apps tas ung Internal Mem nya eh 5Gb lng ang user available sa 8Gb supposed to be na laman nya. Ok nman xa sa Antutu nkaka 11700 but ung actual usage eh lag esp if ibang app gamit mo mg set ng wallpaper.

    2. the best na gawin mo sir...go to CM and let it replaced...why, baka nagamit nilang RAM sa unit mo e yung 7OO+ RAM lang...i dont know baka lang mali nalagay nila...sa akin kasi Total Space: 1.00GB...apps used 400mg...available 600mb...yan nakalagay kay FuBo ko...regarding ROM, yes nasa 5-plus GB nga lang sya.

    1. never tried pero sa tingin ko oo...kasi yung process of updating kay CM same lang din kay Ainol...and we're not really flashing it, updating of FW lang talaga sya using Ainol Update Tool. I don't know pero yun yung pagkakaintindi ko...try mo muna kung madedetect nya Tab mo kapag ginawa mo lahat nang steps and kapag ni-run mo yung Ainol Update tool e madedetect nya as USB si FuBo...if yes detectable sya, proceed ka na.

      UPDATE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

  40. Hi.. We're planning kasi to buy a FuBo once our budget permits pero gusto sana namin malaman if it really plays 1080p vids and smooth ba? If hindi man smooth sa stock, what about sa other players, i.e MX Player? Tsaka, ano pang bang na-experience nyong downside ng FuBo upon using it and upgrading na din.. Thanks a lot!

    1. I am not so sure if it is smooth sa Stock firmware. I think OWL player is best for the FuBo. Back read po kayo sa post na ito marami pong informative posts.
      Or you can also read, Latest Firmwares for Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt. There are a lot of comments that tell you the pros and cons of the different firmware upgrade. I hope nakatulong. :)

    2. Ah.. Ok.. Sige.. Once meron na makabili na kami we'll both try na lang the OWL and MX.. Hehe.. Saka na lang din kami mag-back read.. Baka masyado kami ma-excite bumili eh.. Hehe.. Thanks a lot!

    3. From vinci: "1080p is too much for FUBO...1080p is usually for the top of the line droids...this is not a full HD Tablet...upgrade you firmware to Ainol Novo7 then install MX Player kaya 720p. backread po for pros and cons."

  42. Meron akong tanong about sa battery.. di ko alam kung may problema ung unit ko kasi kakabili ko lang ng FuBo last sunday May 05,2013.. unang gamit ko hangang mag empty okay siya pero ung sumunod na full charge ko kapag ginagamit ko ang bilis nya uminit tapos nung close ko na siya (standby) nung gagamitin ko na ulit siguro after mga ilan hours empty na siya at sobrang init nung likuran.. Meron bang naka experience ng ganito? patulong naman.. Salamat!

  56. update regarding my FuBo's Baterry life...Im using JB4.2.2 Rom for Ainol Novo7 Venus...May 9 at 9pm nakafullcharge then I used it for browsing, mp3, and some youtube videos. then naka-idle sya for 8 hours...may 10 nas 60 percent sya again same ginawa ko browsing and youtube videos. May 11 iniwan ko naka-on for the whole day since nasa gimikan ako (54%). then this morning I checked my battery level ay nasa 44%. my tentative conclusion right now is that, JB4.2.2 is more efficient than the 428 and 328FW. But still, im waiting for the final version of this FW since nasa beta stage palang may mga bugs pa kasi.

      so far pinakamatagal to me is JB4.2.2 FW kasi umabot nang 3 days batt ni FuBo ko with light browsing, youtube videos, and mp3...take note, natutulog akong naka-open wifi nito...kahit umalis ako nang house naka-on lang sya...i never turned it off, naka-idle lang sya...superefficient FW minus some bugs...
