No mate, just got the usual developer options.tried editing the gps config, in system,etc but for some reason it won't save the edit, I think it's to do with the R/RW options but can't find anywhere in the file explorer options to make it writeable.

ES File Explorer > click on upper left icon > Root Explorer > Mount R/W.

Don't forget to return the filesystem to read-only when you're done.

I'm think of getting one. Is the official Miui rom working on this and does it do OTA updates? Thanks

Thanks dude. All I got to do now is find someone in england selling one. I was looking at getting a Red Rice but they are way over charging for it

as it's just a V5 with a faster cpu.

unless I'm missing something?

Really. Why is it so hard to read a not-so-long page and then think

about vowney hardware characteristics & material quality.

 

Extracted from that link:

 

Screen:

Taiwan's AU Optronics (Apple's supplier) screen
Corning Gorilla Glass 2
 
Camera:
(Samsung) camera sensor area of ​​1.4ųm,  
28mm wide angle, F2.2 
 
Audio: 
Dirac technology, widely used in BMW, Bentley, Rolls-Royce car stereo systems
 
Bluetooth 4.0
Compass
 
etc...
 
BTW, folks from Xiaomi made MIUI OS...
 
TD version - yeah, thats the problem, but WCDMA is coming soon.
(and it wasn`t the subject here - you stated that the hardware is same)

I saw all that but I've used GGlass and it isn't that good. BT 4.0 was good when it came out in 2011 I use wireless for everything.

Yes the camera does look interesting But the main hardware is the same other than 1.5 vs 1.2.

To me it's not worth the extra the good Chinese resellers are asking for it i.e MM want £156!!!!

That`s another story. Huge demands made the price going up.

Not only resellers. Hongmi price is much above 80 pounds in China, too.

 

BTW, nice to know that both hongmi and vowney have a compass.
