After successfully rooted, it will install rootexplorer.apk Chinese version which is rather useless for installing Market because it's all in Chinese. Thus, you need to download this "ES File Explorer" in order to put Go/gle Pla9 into system folder.

Here is how to install Google Play Store:

0. Download "Vending-3.5.19 MOD - noupdate.norestrictions-aligned" from the same mediafire folder abo6e. 
1. Change the name to Phonesky.apk.

3. Change permission of Phonesky.apkkfile to Read/Write for Owner; Read for others (rw-r--r--)
4. Shutdown your phone.
5. Switch on your phone, you will see Google Play Store app, and Enjoy!

*UPDATE 2*: Here is a custom firmware ( most of functions are working and rooted ) , all credits to yiminghung and angelobiz, as usual instruction and%2pfaster links are brought to you by zBeYuz 

0. Before upgrade to this firmware, remember to backup all your apps using My Backup or Titanium Backup so that we can restore those apps later.
1-a. Download firmware + flashing tool + drivers from here: May 7 Firmware With New System.img
1-b Driver For Haipai I9220 Only !!: Drivers
2. Unrar the firmware, turn off your phone and take the out battery, then plug the phone into your PC. 
4. Install the driver from the firmware folder that you unrar before, then plug out the phone.
5. a) Go to Flash tool folder and run SPMultiPortFlashDownloadProject.exe
b) Choose Factory Database --> Setup data source file: "MTK_DATABASE.mdb"
c) Choose File --> Open download agent file: "MTK_AllInOne_DA.bin"
d) Choose Scatter File: "MT6575_Android_scatter_emmc.txt" in Firmware folder.
e) Choose the figure same as the picture: SmartPhone MPD.jpg, which can be found in Firmware folder. 
6. Make sure the phone turned off and the battery was taken out. Click Start All and plug your phone into the PC then wait about 5-10 minutes for the flashing process to finish ( Write OK ! ).
7. After it is done, we are good to change the IMEI. However, before that try to turn on the phone to see whether the phone is working or not.
8. If everything is ok, excepted IMEI was missing, download IMEI Changer Tool from here: IMEI Changer For Mtk6575
9. Unrar, install the program and run SN_STATION, which can be found on your desktop. Follow the instruction in the Chinese manual, but we only need to follow the picture in that manual.
The file "Modem Database" and "AP Database" is in firmware folder. You need to choose exactly the file that you see in the picture. 
10. Write down two IMEIs on the back of your phone ( you need to take the battery out to see it ).
11. Again turn off your phone and take the battery out, then plug the phone into your PC, but this time we need to put the battery back in very quickly as soon as we see:
"COM port searching and preloader handshake ok" on SN Writer Log.
11. Wait until "Write Result Indicator" becomes green, then the IMEI has changed successfully.

OR you can try to change your IMEIs by using ZOPO IMEI ( Thanks to colouriste )

2. Check "Dual Imei" 
3. Type in original IMEI #'s 1 & 2 and then
4. Click "Write" 

Enjoy the new firmware with GPS working, wifi improved, front camera working, beautiful font and more...

If you are stuck at Booting Screen, please try those tips below ( For UPDATE 4 Only ): by zBeYuz  

1. Did you forget to extract your system.zip in firmware stock 05 June folder ? 
I just found out earlier that I totally forgot about it . 
Just extract that file you will get system.bin then delete system.zip and start to flash the firmware normally. ( Booting up will take about 3-5 minutes after it is done ). 
If the phone is still stuck please consider the next step...

2. One more thing to take note, I am using different flash tool from angelobiz:

You can refer how to flash with this flash tool here:

0. Driver must be installed: http://www.4shared.com/rar/9onOaDl5/Driver_New.html? ( Please refer to UPDATE 2 for more details ) 

1. Download Only Flash Tool: http://www.4shared.com/rar/v8txho3k/Flashing_Tool.html? 

2. a) Go to Flash tool folder and run SPMultiPortFlashDownloadProject.exe
b) Choose Factory Database --> Setup data source file: "MTK_DATABASE.mdb"
c) Choose File --> Open download agent file: "MTK_AllInOne_DA.bin"
d) Choose Scatter File: "MT6575_Android_scatter_emmc.txt" in Firmware folder.
e) Choose the figure same as the picture (Setting f/r SmartPhone MPD.jpg), which can be found in Firmware folder. 

3. Make sure the phone turned off and the battery was taken out. Plug the phone into the PC and wait about 5-10 minutes for the flashing process to finish ( When you see it becomes green and states that "Write OK" ).

1)ADB driver
you must have debug usb active in your phone.
this driver need for use adb command example for root script or use MTP function.
normally work universal driver of google
this is driver for windows 7 32bit... i dont know if it work for other SO
these are driver for flashing firmware of your phone... in few words, the virtual usb serial port.
only the first time that you plug usb cable to your phone without battery, you will have a window for install new drive.
so you choose the right driver and install it manually.
After install you will never see they in your pc, because they are active only for few seconds when you plug the phone withou battery.
only is there is active a program for flas phone that "catture" the function of USB VCOM, you see they.
this is driver for windows 7 32bit... i dont know if it work for other SO
if yu dont' have this 2 drivers installed you will can have a "broom" error


if you have 19 June Firmware with CWM:
copy update.zip on your SD , start in CWM recovery, and launch Update.zip
If you have 4 or 5 June firmware with CWM
copy update.zip on your SD , start in CWM recovery, and launch Update.zip
you must test if all work  you will have a 19 june firmware.
if you have a older firmware you must flash all firmware of 19 june and
copy update.zip on your SD , start in CWM recovery, and launch Update.zip

Tips + Tricks:

1. Thanks mikeysteele: "One thing I noticed after installing SetCPU is the kernel defaults to the Performance Governor. This means the CPU is always running at the maximum frequency so that might explain the poor battery life. I changed it to the On Demand governor and my battery life has improved."

2-a. Thanks angelobiz: For remove old, hidden driver you can see this: http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/504/h...-and-services/

2-b. Thanks caviar44: This is a tool to remove old drivers: USBDeview v2.11. Just right click on driver instance and then choose "uninstall selected devices".

3. Moborobo - The Android Smartphone PC Manager ( You can use it to install apps, make a backup, blah blah  ) : Moborobo

4. For people who want to have better wifi signal please refer to those picture as it show how to make some changes to the phone antenna. Antenna
