Maybe we'll get lucky and someone will post a step by step tutorial or maybe Chuwi will step up and do the same for us if it exists in the wild.  C'mon Chuwi, give us some love...  How about an official "how to" guide?  You know supporting your older devices will help get you more buyers in future by building trust in the brand.  Maybe Marshmellow would help lead to a cure for the deep sleep and power issues too.

thank you for the heads up, I am gonna give this a try later today.

btw, this is already a step by step tutorial but in german language. Because I haven't tested it myself I am going to point out the general directions.

first of all, the thread mentions this only works on the hi8pro 64bit devices.

1. Install TWRP

2. Download the Android Image to the SD, USB Stick or internal storage

3. Download Google Apps package to the SD, USB Stick or internal storage

4. Boot into TWRP

5. Wipe data and system using TWRP

6. Install the Android Image Zip

7. Install Gapps

8. Reboot

Thanks for the sum up @Localhorst86. Have you finally tried to install it? how did it go?

One of the things they mentioned as an issue is a poor standby battery. That's my main complaint about my tablet...

One of th ...

Install worked fine, the Rom feels fluid and fast, I couldn't find any major bugs. Battery life seems comparable to stock rom, about 8-9% drop per hour in standby mode

original, german thread: http://www.android-hilfe.de/them ... 8-pro-64bit.820498/

I took the liberty of translating it for you guys.

Note: As mentioned before, this is only working for the 64bit versions of the tablet, the 32bit devices have a different boot.img

Working:

WiFi
Bluetooth (Audio tested)
USB-Storage
USB-ADB
USB-OTG (Keyboard)
Multitouch
Gyroscope
Camera ???  
(App crashes occassionaly)
Wireless Display -> enable Developer options, enable the option "disable HW-Overlays" (mixed reports)
Software and Hardware Homebutton

Not Working:

Deep Sleep

Improvements over Stock Lollipop from chuwi:

2000 Points score improvement in Antutu
microSD can be used as additional internal storage for apps
ROM is pre-rooted, enable root in the developer settings
compatible with Xposed framework


Drawbacks over Stock Lollipop from chuwi:

No Deep Sleep
Camera crashes occassionaly


Here are the steps:

1. Install TWRP. TWRP 3.0.2.0 needed, see this thread for the release: http://forum.chuwi.com/thread-3757-1-1.html
2. Download the Android Image (
chuwihi8pro64bitcm13_xxxxxxxx.zip) from the original thread to the SD, USB Stick or internal storage (https://www.file-upload.net/down ... 3_20170311.zip.html)
3. Download Google Apps package from the opengapps site (http://opengapps.org/?arch=x86&api=6.0&variant=p) to the SD, USB Stick or internal storage. Make sure your TWRP has access to that storage. USB Stick or external microSD migth only work with TWRP 3.0.2.0. You need the x86 (NOT the x68_64) package for version 6.0. You can use any variant you want, I suggest using the pico package.
4. Boot into TWRP
5. Wipe data and system using TWRP
6. Reboot Recovery from the TWRP reboot menu(necessary)
7. Install the Android Image Zip (
chuwihi8pro64bitcm13_xxxxxxxx.zip) using TWRP. The process takes about 20 minutes
8. Install Gapps zip file using TWRP
9. Reboot the tablet. First boot takes longer than usual.

Only works on the Hi8pro 64bit devices?  By this you mean the ones with 64 bit BIOS versions that can support 64bit Win 10?  If so, perhaps it would be helpful to post which serial number tablets that includes before someone blows their's up...  just as a public service.

I think it is hi8 pro tablets manufactured after august 2016 are 64 bit. That is 1608 or later should be in the serial nos.

Damm it, I hoped it could solve our battery issues... I am starting to think is a HW issue with the cpu.

Has any of you tried to ROM? The author is looking for feedback concerning screen mirroring. So far the feature has rarely been tested so any reports about wether or not the feature works for you would be great.
