Due to high many users looking for this firmware, I decided to share it without testing, this firmware is on beta so your feedback is needed, before you continue flashing I recommend to perform a backup first for safety purpose, back up first your orig firmware and NVRam, Performing those back up need a Chinese Miracle 2 box or NCK box, and if you don’t have that and you have no choices, you can also flash it then we encourage you to feedback by commenting below.
