How to flash a Custom Firmware / Resources ?
(At your own risk... We aren't responsible for bricked devices and we won't help in case of other problems)


Step 1
★ Install Hey Plus - Flash (link in the Hey+ App thread).


Step 2
★ Open the Hey Plus Application.
★ Go in "Settings" -> "Firmware version".
★ Turn off your Bluetooth.
★ Start the update (files will be downloaded, and you will have error message with "Cancel" and "Retry" buttons).
★ Copy the Custom Firmware (file "1") (and the Custom Resources (file "0")) in "Internal Storage -> Android -> data -> com.ryeex.groot -> cache -> firmware -> *SmartBand ID* -> *Firmware version*.
★ Turn on your Bluetooth.
★ Return in the Hey Plus Application and tap on "Retry" button.
★ Wait. After flash, the SmartBand will reboot.
★ The Application will say "Failed", tap on "Cancel".
★ Enjoy :).

Hi. I do not have the update option to update to English firmware after automatic software update. May b it's because firmware is already up-to-date. Plz help

Thx a lot. Band successfully flashed in English version. Actually I have a notification that new update is available, should I update or ignore it? Also can't use the weather info since my city is not in China. Is there any fix for this?

Hey Plus Flash will always say you have an update, after flash use a other Hey Plus (English, French, ...).

For weather, only available for China, maybe for all in futur.

Hi. Thx a lot for your help. Is it possible to customize the background to put our own instead of the presets one?

Yes you can, in "Dials", "All", "New". You need uninstall one of default dial in first ("Dials", "Edit").
