    Looks like the Jiayu G3T is favourite.

    Can anyone recommend a trusted seller?

    Cheers

    I have found a JIAYU G3S for £120 shipped.

    Is this a good deal?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Having bought and returned (couldn't register on giffgaff) an 'S4' chinese clone from Amazon, I am now looking for a quality chinese brand.

    I have been looking a the Lenovo s830 and a Cubot GT99.

    After reading some of the posts they don't seem like a good choice.

    Can someone recommend a chinese brand that would be easy to setup as english, not bloated with chinese apps with a good quality screen, quad core, half way decent camera and will work with giffgaff? and have play store access.

    Many thanks in advance, the more I look at the more confused I get.

    Regards
    John

    I have screwed up my wifes SFII Crescent.

    I uninstalled a downloaded launcher and now it wont reboot.

    It gets the fish and chips logo then the dots keep going around the fish the it flashes white then the fish dots again etc etc.

    My pc is not detecting it. Power and vol- gives me a FTM screen but that doesn't seem to do anything.

    Anyone got any ideas on rescuing it? i am getting serious grief off my MRS.

    Cheers

    Surely as I requested the unlock when it was 3 months and they have taken my money, the 3 month rule applies?

    Hi,

    I am also having problems getting my unlock code.

    I have called CS several times after being told I would have it within 20 days.

    I was told 2 days, 2 hours and then 2 days then the last time I called they put me on hold for ages then cut me off. Never got a uk call center always india.

    I have spoken to supervisors and team managers and all just said "I will contact you in ( insert days/weeks/hours)" then nothing after.

    They had no problem taking my money though.

    Any ideas as to what where I should try next?

    Cheers

    What can I say you guys are awesome.

    Ran the update.zip....xolo

    adbd and super user worked as they should and the boxes were ticked :)

    From there plane sailing. Rooted, sd cards and orange logo!

    Can anyone recommend a laucher. I like nova but the live wallpaper loss is getting a bit annoying but I like that you can get more icons on the screen and add more pages.

    Many thanks.

    Thanks I will give that a try. Do you have a link for xolo.zip?

    I have copied adbd to the sdcard and run it from there but I don't get the tickboxs and says it needs super user.

    When I run the tool it says its copied adbd to data/temp/something but I can't find the file on the phone. What is the full path?

    I also get a blue android with androidboot over it with a green stationary line under it.

    Eventually (about 20min) I gave up waiting and powered down/up the phone.

    Another thing is live wallpaper is lost everytime I power down the phone. Don't know if that is significant?

    Thanks for all your help.

    Well still not getting anywhere.

    I have run the tool and the batch file.

    It does reboot the phone most of the time but I am getting a lot of read only file system messages and a lot of failed for remounts and copying files.

    Not sure where I am going wrong but nohing seems to work.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    I am running the original orange ICS.

    I am trying to root and enable the sdcard slot.

    The tool worked on my previous OSD but after having it replaced with a faulty power button the tool no longer works.

    I'm concerned with changing it to xolo as I wounldnt be able to return it under warranty if I had another problem.

    Is it now only the xolo thats rootable?

    If I go for xolo can I switch back to an earlier version of the orange ICS without doing the update?

    What is the difference between the xolo and the orange ics (apart from rootability)

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Can't get anything to work.

    Can't get root to work adbd is not giving me the option to tick the box and superuser doesn't see any apps or seem to do anything.

    I can't flash the orange ICS (option 2 I think) or downgrade (32). Nothing seems to work with this warranty swappout phone.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Does anyone look at these pages any more?

    Cheers
