    Bought a THL W100 from BuySKU and they were pretty faultless and sent the phone out in good time. All in it took just over 2 weeks to arrive and most of that was due to it being stuck in customs as they try to figure out how much import tax to charge me. The phone is great and my daughter loves it.
    As for customer service, I only e-mailed once and they got back to me in about 8 hours which is a lot quicker then the 3 days it took Parcel Force in the UK to reply!

    Nothing exciting I'm afraid. It only contains patch files for a bunch of system apps, so probably security updates.

    So, apart from the UI and apps being laggy, how can we categorically tell if OpenGL has been used? I ask as Z-Device Test (my phone info app of choice) shows a whole bunch of OpenGL extensions under the Android OS category on my G300 running B927, so if that is not right what do I need to do?

    I always find that on my virgin router if I set the wifi channel to 13 then it cannot connect properly, any other channel and it has a rock solid connection.

    Porting Jellybean to other devices
    I'll happily admit I'm a noob when it comes to developing but I come across this post over on XDA about porting Android 4.1 over to other phones and it seems doable


    All credit to randomblame on XDA (post http://forum.xda-dev...78&postcount=36)

    So my question to anyone who knows their ROMS is: Does this seem like something that can be done for the G300? I know the CM9 port is still a work in progress, but it does work. Is it stable enough to maybe branch off for a 4.1 port?.

    Yay!!
    The Carphone warehouse by where I work has tablets on display where you can have a play with them, so I'll have a good play before buying :)

    Cheers mate. I've had a look and a lot of the changes are done via patch files, so that's going to be incredibly hard to port over to another phone. What we need is a full rom dump from one of the phones.

    I am tempted as I've have never been happy with my current tablet (a modded hannspree Hannspad) and all the videos out now seem to show this working quite nicely. I'm ok with the lack of HMDI and no 3G option I imagine but some will be put off by that.

    Anyone know if this will be sold outside the US?

    Same here, I thought it was just my old laptop :P
    Funny how it creates com ports and even a modem device but you can't interrogate them. Wonder what we're missing....

    I didn't make a list, but I can see the following in Windows device manager
    Android Adapter USB Device
    Android Adapter Modem
    Android Adapter PCUI (Com port)
    DBAdapter Reserved Interface (COM port)

    But there were more when I first plugged in the phone.
    I can't get any of the com ports to respond. Anyone else tried or found something new?

    Manufacture Mode
    Don't mind tinkering with your phone? Got 15 mins with nothing to do? Try this:

    Dial *#*#2846579#*#*
    Select Project Menu
    Select Background Settings
    Select USB Ports Settings
    Choose Manufacture Mode

    Reboot your phone and connect it to your computer and wait as 7 extra devices are installed, including 2 com ports :D

    I'm just installing QPST to see what I can get from the com ports, but let's see what you can do ;)
