  1. MadeInMachines added a post in a topic SD card not mounting   

    I'm getting really irritated with this issue too. Within days/weeks after I've re-formatted, as I have now done many times, set up link2sd, put lots of apps on the SD, filled the SD up with music my SD card is not recognised or rejected. I'm alternating between 2 lexar 30gb ones and both do the same. Given this phones pitiful lack of internal memory it really is a big issue. Is the any solution or fix? Sometimes my phone keeps on rebooting in an endless loop until I remove the SD and then it starts normally. Running stock rom on my ZTE skate.

    Very Poor Wifi Reception
    I've been wondering about this for a while. When in the same position as my laptop my laptop gets full wifi reception - my phone gets mostly just the bottom tip of reception on the wifi meter. I figured it was just because phones had a smaller receiver or something for wifi as it is my first wifi phone. Of course wifi signal is great when in the same room as my router but that's not the point.

    My phone is over a year old now as I just accepted it was just the nature of wifi on phones but it bugs me a lot especially given 3g is really poor in my area. Could I get a swap at the orange store perhaps? It's rooted and unlocked though but I guess that can be reversed can't it? Using stock orange ROM.

    Does my phone have a hardware fault?

    Could this be the same issue users of the blade have been complaining about noted here:

  4. MadeInMachines added a post in a topic << LINK2SD GUIDE >> (UPDATED PLEASE READ)   

    Last time I followed this guide it worked fine - my sd card died so i got an new one - this time i followed it and repeated a few times but kept coming up with the same problem - the large partition isn't being recognised at all - it shows up when I connect my phone to my laptop but my phone won't recognise it so I am left with 1GB of storage on a 32 GB SD card. My music on the large partition can't be found.

    What letter should the large partition have if the small one has a letter F? Should both be Fat32 as they are. Whenever I put in the freshly formatted SD link to SD doesn't ask me to select fat 32 or reboot - it remembers all my old information. I tried to uninstall and delete all its data and reinstall but doesn't help. Any ideas?

    Using the factory ROM and want to keep it

    Thanks I'll give that a try and report back. How do you 'mount /system as read and write' though?

    Is there a way to turn off / deactivate the button lights on the OMC?
    They drive me mad. Seems like my phone is always trying to get my attention for some reason whether its the mryiad of updates, low battery, a text...or some other random notification.

    I want it to stop as I find myself often going on the phone just to get rid of the alert as the flashing distracts me. Is there any app or thing I can do to disable flashing button alerts? It would actually be much less annoying if they didn't flash but just stayed on red/green but getting rid of it all together would suit me well.

    Thanks

    Ah didn't know if it was a power or software incompatibility issue. I'm not buying a new phone, I'll just play the best games I can.
    Cheers

    Can I Update My Android Software To The Latest Version? How?
    My phone is rooted and I want to know if I can update to play the latest games on my not too old ZTE skate. Is it possible? I don't really want to go down the 3rd party rom road if at all possible
    Thanks

    What does that mean - how do you do it?
    I dont think it's worth changing my phone over really. I've very happy with the skate. The Huawei looks pretty good though! What's the difference in power? Is it have ARMv7?
