Yeah I ordered the black cover from merimobiles, they also got it at Ibuygou now for same price as pandawill..

[url="http://www.ibuygou.com/p-vowney_v5_quad_core_android_4_2_5_0_inch_smartphone_mtk6589_hd_screen_otg_ota-5057-usd.html"]http://www.ibuygou.com/p-vowney_v5_quad_core_android_4_2_5_0_inch_smartphone_mtk6589_hd_screen_otg_ota-5057-usd.html[/url]

Its a great phone for the price, much slimmer in real life. I'm gonna try and flash your rom then if I can work out how to use the video camera make a video!

As I said on the China phones thread, my V5 was waiting for me when I got home from work tonight. :)

Took less than 5 days from dispatch to arrival. I'm pleasantly surprised by how thin it is and it's quite light as well. The screen seems really good as well.

@tillaz Anything you'd like me to do with my completely stock phone before I install CWM etc?

Hey Tillaz, I wiped and then tried to flash the rom but it just said

'error, Install aborted'

Is it because it is an older version of clockwork mod?

Any ideas?

Are you using cwm?

if so did the error have (bad) at the end?
This normally means that the zip has been corupted when copied to the sdcard,

Yes they have all black in, the volume and power buttons are part of the rear removable cover , so which ever colour back cover you choice the buttons will be same colour, strange cost conversion on pandawill to pounds is £115 but on the other site ibuygou conversion is £112 still very cheap, pandawill have 2x original screen protectors for just over £2 and the original case for just over £5

i don't even think that is cwm, looks like its the stock android recovery.

all i can suggest its rename the rom .zip slightly and add to the sdcard (so its not overwriting, sometimes this causes corruption) then trying to flash it,
if it still fails you should try and install the proper cwm.

When you say rename the rom .zip? Rename it to Anything in particular, maybe update.zip? Edited by Sere83

just remove a letter or two, makes no difference really, just so its not overwriting the old one.
to be fair though i'm sure its because you dont have clockwork recovery, that's why you have no mounts and storage option

Ok cool, will try that.

But if that does not work do I simply follow the second part of your guide to install clockwork mod? Do I need to still pull the stock recovery?

Will clockwork mod interfere with the recovery console that is currently on my v5? Edited by Sere83

Sere83, I would seriously advise you to install CWM and make a nandroid backup before you install anything.

Is pandawill reliable and trusted? I got my V5, 11 days after purchase from Merrimobiles and they have it in black too, listed at £118.30, However it's paypals exchange rate you'll be paying.

Hmm, personally i'd go merrimobiles or ibuygou before pandawill.

Rico_89 Have you installed Tillaz' Rom yet? Have you installed CMW? Did you just follow Tillaz guide? Is pulling stock recovery necessary?

I've made a backup using the normal recovery console already, does CMW wipe the normal recovery? Edited by Sere83

you should do the whole guide from the start so proper drivers are installed, although you could try flashing the recovery straight away

it replaces the useless stock recovery with cwm recovery

stock recovery can't do anything useful, where as cwm recovery can truly bring your phone back from "soft" bricks with ease...
as well as making proper backups, its a "must have" to fair.

i include the stock recovery image in the package though so it can be replaced the same way cwm is flashed.

Lovely OK sweet, thanks Tillaz, I will try the guide, I presume a windows 7 PC is better than Windows 8 for this sort of thing yes?

I tried the rename by the way, no joy... Edited by Sere83
