How To Flash Vivo V7 (Just 7 Minutes)


How to Flash Vivo V7   – Actually, besides being able to fix various software problems in Vivo V7 phones, flashing can also be used for other things. An example is updating the operating system to be newer or just trying a new custom ROM that is different from the original ROM / Firmware. Here I have also provided a download link for the ROM / firmware Vivo V7 found below.


Vivo V7 is one of the newest smartphones introduced by Vivo in December. This smartphone has a notch with screen measuring 5.7 inches, and resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels.

How To Flash Vivo V7

Vivo V7 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor and Adreno 506. Vivo V7 runs on Funtouch OS 4 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

Vivo V7 comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. One of the attractions offered by Vivo is the presence of good cameras on the rear with cheap price at about only 400 Euro.

This dual camera carries a 16 which is equipped with LED Flash. While the selfie camera use 24 MP. Other spesifications and features of Vivo V7 are IPS LCD screen and 3000 mAh Li-Po battery.


Although the actual flashing process of the Vivo V7 itself is not difficult, friends who want to try it must be more careful because if one chooses the firmware it could be that your cellphone cannot be turned on again, or commonly called the bootloop term.

While the flashing process of Android itself can be interpreted as a reinstall if applied to a computer or laptop. Flashing is commonly used to correct various problems such as

  • Vivo V7 bootloop.
  • Vivo V7 forgets passwords.
  • Vivo V7 restarts itself.
  • Vivo V7 only vibrates or
  • Vivo V7 is totally off or hardbrick.

Actually the various problems above can be caused by the users themselves or even a small part due to system errors. And if a problem occurs as mentioned above, flashing is needed to fix it.


Before carrying out the flashing process of the Vivo V7, note some of the requirements below.

  • I suggest to do the data backup process first because this process will eliminate all data in the cellphone.
  • The cellphone battery must be more than 50% so the process can run smoothly.
  • Download all files below.

ROM above is a global version of ROM, so there is Indonesian in it.


If all the above requirements succeed, you meet, now is the time to do the flashing process.

STEP #1.  Extract the file that was downloaded above and install the USB Driver on your computer by right-clicking> Run as Administrator.

STEP #10. The Vivo V7 cellphone friend will reboot automatically when the flash process is complete, just wait until the phone turns on again. But remember, this reboot will take a little while, so please be patient.


If the flashing process stops at the yellow bar, then try to repeat installing the USB Driver or try to restart the PC first. After you finish flashing, you can try the Vivo V7 root process . See you in my next article at
