For CWM in English:

When you reboot into the recovery mode the manual is in English and not Chinese anymore (if you are rooting a WCDMA Hongmi)

Hi all,
I tried the 3.8.16 rom.
The new camera app disapeared and it can't be reinstalled with backup tool, so there'sno camera on it.
If anybody you encounter problems with playstore, delete your google account and create it again.
The factory reset don't delete apps already installed before flashing.
I made some tests and reinstall the official version. The recovery back to first version.
I made my own french translation with the HM2.1rom (I use Jbart Burgerz) and flash it with Update tool.
It works well except some apps are not translate (new camera) and stay in english. Root disapear and I reinstall it, Superuser is in Chinese(I reflash and I've backed up the english version to reinstall it after).
For now I'm staying with my French HM2.1 rooted version and I will reflash when the miui android version will have camera app.

Thanks for all this guide and all your work, and sorry for my English!

did you make factory reset in that chinese CWM..?
Yes I did it with this chinese CWM, maybe I've mess something.

I reflash the phone and all goes well (factory reset before and after the flash)
I've just replace the vold.fstab (from your other post) in the rom zip before flashing and my phone storage is now 16 Go!!!
Thanks for all Ingbrzy!

Flash this new rom and like it, especially for calendar notifications. I found a little bug and don't now where to post it.
the led indicator settings FC when I set other color as bleu or red and setting yellow make green color, it's not a big matter!

Well! I followed the instructions and everything went fine and the end is success.
I am unable to download the 3.9.20 version and download is failed in between with message network failure.
Please provide if another address is available for quick download.
Thanks a lot for the efforts you people made.

ok will be fixed for next version..
The led bug is in part solved in the new version, if you choose red, green or blue its ok. If you choose other colors the settings don't fc but the colors are wrong, just green red or blue. Thanks for all your work.
