    DPI Changer breaking Samsung stock apps on Galaxy Tab 3 7" T210
    I am so pleased that I have upped the DPI to 250 using DPI Changer on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7" T210 tablet, I can see the screen much better now and its a lot easier on my eyes - only thing is such a lot of the samsung stock apps are not working such as the camera, gallery, stock launcher, touch wiz (ive actually downloaded go launcher EX)  and loads of other samsung stock apps dont work with just a message of " unfortunately ** has stopped"

    However if i put ppi back to 160 DPI then everything works again - what is it with the samsung stock apps, why do they crash with 250DPI and is there any workarounds apart from using alternative apps?  Thanks.

    hi, I wonder if this will work for my Y300-0100 on Meteor Ireland? - the phone was on B171 then I downloaded B175, but now its got B175 there are no shortcuts in the pull down notification bar which I had in B171 firmware.

    I dont know if this will work but it might be worth a try maybe. Take a photo of a white piece of paper, then go into gallery and choose photo to view full screen, to stop screen turning off/time out download an always on app from android play and leave it on that white screen for maybe half an hour and see if that maybe clear the retention, just an idea I havent tried it myself. Hope this helps.

    Does anyone know how to flash TWRP Recovery 0n Y300 without using Fastboot?
    Hello - I have a problem with my volume switches they dont work - but TWRP dont need them to work because its done by touch-screen  - but trouble is I cannot get into Fastboot without the volume switches working. The phone is rooted. The only recovery I seem to have is the stock <3e> installed and I want to change that to TWRP - was going to flash CWM recovery but that would require the volume buttons to move up and down within the menu. Any Ideas  how to flash Team win recovery without using fastboot? can i do it by ADB win? and if so, how? - cheers.

    thanks, i think I am beginning to find that out - however my Irish y300-0100 is running C00B175 .. I am presuming the C00 is for the country? - and when I look up other C00 Firmware it says its for eastern europe! - I am presuming the original C477 on my y300 when I bought it was for Meteor Ireland

    Trying to flash the most up to date stock rom y300
    Hi - heres my situation. I bought a Y300 from meteor Ireland. it came with B171 firmware: y300-0100V100R001C477B171 - so I got in touch with Huawei UK support and said I wasnted to Update it to B175 firmware because people where saying it was faster. Then I got an email back from them saying:

    Why do you want to update to such an old fimware? - the UK y300 UK version first release is B176 and the current one in the market is B192, and you are trying to download B175. I don't see the reason???
     
    So i said could they direct me to the official B192 firmware then? - and then they replied back saying "your B171 is the latest fiermware for your phone B175, B176 & B192 will not wotk on your phone and there will be problems"
     
    So anyway last week I done a bit of googling and came across Y300-0100V100R001C00B175 downloaded it, took the plunge and made the dload folder on the SD card and kept everything crossed as I pressed 'update from SD Card' and hoped for the best and hope I werent gonna end up with a bricked phone. Well it updated well and the phone is performing on that firmware, no problem everything seems to be working fine, mobile signal, wifi signal, everything. So then I wrote back to UK Huawei technical support last week and said I have managed to update to B175 with no problems, can they now send me details where to get B176 or B192 seeing as its the latest firmware for the y300 ... needless to say they havent bothered to reply back now. 

    Today I downloaded B197 (B197-dload.7z) from the internet to try. Expanded it, put the update.app in the download folder as normal, it went on stage 1/2 OK but then stopped on 2/2 with update failed message. I feared oh no, thats it bricked I suppose so i removed battery wated for a while, put it back in and pressed the power button and the phone started up! - whent into 'about' and wondered I wonder what version I am on, dont say it actually updated to B197... but it hadnt, I am still on B175 - would like to see if I can go higher if I can, I like to run the latest firmwares because they normally sort out bugs or add features. On this B175 I got at the moment, seems to be faster but have lost me little toggle switches in the notification bar, i miss them i quite like them they were handy. I wonder what the cause was of it failing in step 2 of 2. On here people say its because you have to download the right b version for your country but the Higher B versions I can see on the net dont give the full name of C00B197 or whatever so its difficult.

    3 LED's for Backlighting the Soft navigation Buttons but can they be controlled seperately?
    Just intrigued I dont mind whether they can be or not, but when I had my phone in bits I see that they have used 3 LED lights as the backlighting for the 3 soft navigation buttons at bottom of the LCD screens. I wonder if these could be controlled independently of each other or just light up all three at the same time - just thinking if they could be controlled independantly from each other for Notification purposes. I have rooted and gravity Box but that just flashes all 3 lights together. Pic Below.

    cool. - I took apart my Y300 as well, I wanted to etch away a bit more of the window where the Notification LED was to make it brighter and more noticible and achieved that. The only downside is that when I put the phone back together I found it hard to put lead back onto the board from the volume switches 'forced it' and resulted breaking the contacts! - so my volume buttons dont work at all on the phone now but as a work around I downloaded a volume app that I can adjust on screen so no worries.

    How can I speed up my y300 further?
    Hi there, My Huawei Y300 has gone very laggy from when I first bought it last month. Its rooted, I have moved as much as I can to the SD card, its got Stock ROM on it, I put antutu CPU governor both the minimum and maximum up to full, I have installed cache cleaner and regularly empty cache and close background running programs I dont need. Is there any other ways I can speed it up for general use?

    using LGCamera App on y300 - storage space issue
    Hi there - This LGcamera app looks good, better than the stock app but I took a few photos and I cant take any more now it says I have less than 10mb storage, but I have a 8gb SD Card in the phone. Have gone into LGCamera settings and changed the storage settings for photos and videos to SD0 and SD1 but still same message about not enough storage and there is loads of space left on my 8gb sd card. So another question, is the SD Card in my Y300 SD0 or SD1 ??? thanks.

  15. Andy From Ireland added a post in a topic The y300 Notification LED why so tiny?   

     
    Thats interesting - this tasker app does it alter the brightness of the soft keys at the bottom of the screen too, because im pretty sure they can go brighter. I am using a feature on gravitybox that can flash the soft-key backlights but they flash dimly and pretty sure they could go brighter.
