Should there be software issues on your Elephone P8000 after playing around with various custom developments, one sure-fire way to rectify those issues is to flash back the stock ROM on the phone that will remove all the customizations and put back all the default things on the phone.

If you are interested, here’s how you can go about unrooting and flashing back the stock ROM on the Elephone P8000:


Files You Need

  1. You should have rooted your phone using our how to root the Elephone P8000 tutorial.
  2. You must have a Windows running computer in order to do this tutorial. The reason is because the flashing tool that you are going to use is Windows only.
  3. You should have Flash Tool drivers installed on your Windows computer. Install them if they are not already.
  4. This should erase the data stored on your phone. So, please backup anything that you think is important for you.
  5. This should get your phone back to the stock by flashing the stock ROM.
  6. Download SP Flash Tool to your computer. You will use it to flash the ROM on your phone.
  7. Download Stock ROM to your computer. It is the whole OS for your phone.
