    yeah i saw the smallbuffer line in there, that's all it contains. i will check the one on phone actually has that later, fairly sure it does though!edit:
     
    edit: OOOPs! the config files on phone somehow got blanked when it copied, after i pasted smallbuffer in and saved, it installed first time didn't need to do any more wipes or anything. thanks! not sure how that file came out blank, that's a weird one, all the other zips copied over fine.

    hi, not sure if i'm being stupid or if latest zips have got bigger?
    have tried twice following optional parts also exactly, logs say i need 6061kb extra space.
     
    here are my versions:
     
    recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.5-u8815-R8
    cm-11-20150227-NIGHTLY-u8815
    delete-CM-stuff-20150126-signed
    pa_gapps-modular-pico-4.4.4-20150221-signed
     
    many thanks
     
    edit: well i can see for a fact the zips have got bigger, but not sure if that's issue, will try flashing older versions later.

  4. Smiff2 added a post in a topic [ROM][ICS] Stock+ ROM [B960 - R6 | Updated: 06-03]   

    found one kind of bad problem, which i'm guessing is probably a stock bug?
    it doesn't connect to foreign network for roaming automatically, either needs selecting manually and/or a reboot.
    when returning to home network, def. needs a reboot, otherwise it can't connect (Even) if selected manually.
    this was giffgaff uk trying to roam in spain btw.
    didn't use to be a problem on GB roms.

    the dodgy 3g..
    does 1g/2g data work reliably? that's good enough for me, for checking email and such.

    thanks, did you find all these problems with stock based 4.x roms (not CM, i know the CM issues), and did you unlock your BL with offiical code? i'm hoping CM9 or 4.0.x ROMs are ok on G300, though you're right 512MB RAM isn't really enough for 4.x+

    still the best stock-based fixed-up rom, or anything better come along in last 4/5 months or so? thinking about updating from stock GB, i can leave BL locked?

    ...apparently can't install CWM with locked BL, will have to wait for code from Huawei..
    ...and got code, that was fast. will try this rom later unless anyone has other suggestions for similar. on paper this looks ideal.


    edit3: installed, easier than expected (going from GB stock so still quite a faff).
    no major problems so far except the default new mail sound was a ringtone which was funny, maybe from leftover old k9 settings not sure if that's a default in this rom. also Titanium Backup went a bit crazy when i overclocked so will leave that off for a bit. Looks great so far thanks, also just spotted the addons which fixes one of my complaints.

    there's nothing in the "issues" post.
    how's everyone mobile network connections? (specifically for 02/giffgaff uk if possible).
    how is it for making phone calls? (volume, voice quality etc.?)
    how's the latest nightlies vs the last "stable" build here?
    edit: not sure there is a "stable", so can someone recommend a good build please? for stability, not worried about OC features and such.

  9. Smiff2 added a post in a topic Huawei G510 could this be the G300 replacement we want?   

    is it NFC or not? conflicting info.

    Dual SIM and low PPI gives this an "old person travelling" niche.

    otherwise can't see point of high CPU spec with such low RAM, it'll be a crap for many large apps.

    ^ do you mean those problems don't happen with old baseband, or just that you've only tried on 2030?

    edit: also, assuming you had none of those problems on stock (gb) rom?

    sooo.. been away for a bit, sorry for newb Q:

    Can we now go straight from stock gingerbread to this, and back again (if it doesn't work out), just using CWM and no other hacks? It's the ease of going back that was stopping me playing about before (not my phone!).

    Anything we should know about this, like how not to brick it, should backup IMEI etc?

  14. Smiff2 added a post in a topic how do i change the voicemail number?   

    hmmm yes i had to do this too. right pain.

    anyway i've just realised one phone is used by someone who switches SIMs for different countries. is there any way to make this editable through the gui. is it just permissions on that file, or does it not work that way? i've no idea how Android permissions work!

    thanks to anyone who knows..

  15. Smiff2 added a post in a topic ZTE Blade III now available in the UK   

    i already have a 1ghz dual core 512mb £100 phone (Sony Xperia U) and can tell you dual core is pretty useless when it can't keep any apps open because it's out of RAM all the time.
    i'd rather have a single core with 1GB RAM than this.
    (Xperia P i bought for £150 is much better, (basically same phone with twice the RAM) but unfortunately too big for me!)
