    Oh sorry. I'm not used to this forum having different sections.

    Will a printout of the order confirmation (I bought it online) count as a reciept? I'm at uni right now and my home is a very long couple of train ride away and I didn't the box or anything else along with me.

    Edit: Would they be able to extract all the stuff off it. It's just I have loads of things I'd rather not loose.

    OSD (Apparently) Dead - Any Help?
    So, yeah, my OSD died, which is kind of weird.

    Basically, the background: I have never rooted, never gone onto any of the xolo roms and the only thing that I have ever really done in terms of modifying it is to update it to Android 4.0 by the official orange route. Essentially I was playing a game on it (I'm not ashamed to say that it was the new My Little Pony: Friedship is Magic game), I try to get back to the home screen and all of a sudden the screen just goes totally black on me. And now it won't respond, at all, to anything I do. Previously when it has done similar things, I've held the power button in for 8-10 seconds and it's rebooted. Trouble is that isn't working, which kind of leaves me a bit stuck really. On any of my previous phones I would have done a battery pull, but, er, yeah. Any ideas, beyond leaving it overnight and seeing if it comes back to life?

    Edit: Just to avoid the obvious question, yes it did have charge in it. I'd just taken it off after having charged it for a few hours and it claiming to be up to 99/100%

    Edit 2: And yes, I have tried turning it off and on again.

    The Orange ICS also has some slight bloat. There are three game demos in there too.

    Some screenshots of Orange ICS, and it is indeed very Orange:

    The OTA update app on the Orange ROM says the update is 271mb, so everything that needs to be there probably is.

    I think he meant the Xolo software update page.

    The whole reason they make it vague is specifically to cover themselves should it ever come to legal proceedings. It is highly unlikely you would get away, under those terms, with updating via anything other than the official route. Legally speaking it probably will void your warranty because doing so does technically come under the provision barring software modifications "outside the manufacturer's instructions" and strictly speaking is an "unauthorized modification to the software" given that the only authorised modifications are those made via the official Orange route.

    Thats up to Orange. I could afford to throw my Blade's warranty away, I can't afford to do the same with my OSD. If there is even the slightest chance updating via the Xolo route will void it, I'll happily wait for the Orange ICS update. Also, I'm not that added about updating tbh since if I want android 4 I can just load it up on my tablet and for now GB does everything I need it to.

    The Ext-SD is there on GB too. Its the partition that the phone's internal storage memory is classified as, and even if the SD slot did work you wouldn't be seeing anything there at all. You can't read from an external SD card if there isn't one in there.

    Download an app called TelStop from off the Play Store, and that will stop the exploit from working.

    GTA III works perfectly fine for me. Don't know why it would give you any issues.

    Charging/Date and time oddities.
    I dont know if anyone else experiences this or has the answer as to why it is, but I keep getting a weird problem. Whenever I put the phone on charge and then wake it up afterwards, the date and time are always wrong. The date keeps setting itself back to 1st January 1970 and the time is always set to some random figure.

    I keep the box for using network provided values is checked but that never stops it going all weird. Anyone any ideas about what might be going wrong here and how I can stop it?

    I guess. The only android I previously had with a search button was my HTC Wildfire, but I never used it on that either. To me it's totally superfluous.
