    Paul,
     
    Did you manage to get root access on this device?
    If root is manageble on this phone, and the batterylife is agreeable, then I'll get this phone!

    A shame I just bought a Lenovo a760 with the same internals, but 4,5" and qhd for $113. I'm sure the Gf would've liked to have a smaller phone like the ZTE..
    This should be a killer phone, small form Factor, 1gb ram and cheap as chips.

    I'm sure you already must've fixed it, but I did the same thing a few months ago, with success.
    It's quite simple: unscrew all screws behind the batterydoor.
    Take off the plastic, undo all plugs.
    Now it's time to separate the glass from the digitizer. These are glued together. You can use a hairdryer to heat up the glue and divide them. I just pinched a hole through the front glass camera opening with a small screwdriver. This broke the glass and I could separate the glass bits from the digitizer.
    Putting things back together is as easy as going in reverse. ;-)

    I was really lucky to find a refurbished and unlocked huawei g615 for £170 for my mum: quad core, 1gb ram and 720p ips 4,5".
    It hasn't arrived yet, but if the build quality is anything like the g500 that I previously owned, than I'm a happy camper! Or my mum, that is ;)

    Really looking forward to reading your review!

    After a screen replacement, the home button fails to work and it doesn't charge anymore. I must've done something wrong.. Anyone know any solution?

    Hey, I cannot find those pics on the Jiayu bbs. Do you mind posting them here? I need to open my phone for a screen replacement. I will take pictures, but will wait until I receive my newly ordered dual sim phone.
    Just in case ;)

    After some clicking around, I found the correct thread. Since that bbs is so slow, I pulled the pics. Can be downloaded here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/669141/Jiayu%20G2.zip

    Btw, My only way to get to ROOT the phone was following this guide: http://www.modaco.co...lickroot-guide/

    I've edited the first two parts for convenience:
    If you don't have the correct drivers, download the Android SDK kit and follow the instructions to install the driver. It should be Android ADB Device after installation.
    Download this package, extract it somewhere
    Ensure you enabled USB Debugging (Settings -> Developer Options) as well as Installation of Unknown Sources (Settings -> Security -> Unknown Sources is checked)
    Connect your device (turned on) to the computer.
    Run the RunMe.bat (to be found in the JYG2.7z file), follow the instructions, I picked "Normal" (1) in the first step.
    It'll now show a message informing that if it's working it'll tell you, if it's not, it'll run forever, at this point look at the phone. It should be at a "Restore My Data" screen. According to the chinese site, DON'T SET ANY PASSWORD. Just press "restore my data".
    Your phone will reboot after this.
    Once rebooted. You have root.

    Nope. I tested it for you, but the phone does not start if the battery is out/dead.

    I'm using the G2 now for a few days. I have experience with several Android phones, ranging from HTC, Sony, Sony-Ericsson to Samsungs. My last one was a Samsung Galaxy S3. I sold the S3 in anticipation of the Nexus 4.
    I bought the G2 as a spare, and maybe use it with my personal and work sim in it.

    I'm very pleased with the G2. It's relatively fast, the screen is fine, although the colours aren't as vibrant as I'm used to, battery life is excellent and Vanilla Android is a joy to use.
    Minor issues are
    - the loose button, which resonates when the phone vibrates,
    - scrolling through pages isn't as fast as I'm used to, it seems to stop as soon as you take your finger off the screen
    - notification lights are a bit too intense for my liking
    - colours of the screen aren't as vibrant as I'm used to

    Overall I think this phone is a winner:
    I love the speed, the weight in my hands, the battery life, dual sim, extendible storage and untouched Android.

    Thanks bro!
    The pdanet drivers didn't work for me, only the Google drivers from the SDK kit. Download and installed from here, http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html, then installed the Google drivers, and there, it worked!
    Rooted as advertised :-)

    I'm having the same problem as Enigmaximus.
    It keeps hanging at 0%.
    I'm proceeding Exactly like you stated..

    Any ideas? It doesnt seem to enter flash mode.

    I'm trying this root guide now, which seems easier.

  13. bas-r added a post in a topic So... which Nexus(') are you buying?   

    Definately getting a 16GB N4.
    I'll be in the UK for the week round 13 November.
    What shops would be selling it? Or will it be Play Store only the first few weeks?

    Maybe even in a Heathrow Tech shop for on the way home??

    I've found a chart that tells you what frequecies are used for 3G over the world. The only confusing one seems to be the U.S.A., and I would recommend checking with your provider first which bands it is using for 3G.
    Most European countries seem to use 2100, which is supported by the G2, and supposedly all other phones with Mediatek chips.
