all files you need here in one place.https://www.dropbox....xhag/utQJgR3ErX


Hope you like it and as you probably want to get straight to it I will link to a root video as mine is not up yet and I am nightshift tonight.
a video you can watch he also has links to files in description.
https://www.youtube....h?v=OpxgavcJKow

check if you have standard recovery, shutdown phone but make sure quick boot is not checked in system settings\accesibilty - quick boot- un tick if ticked.
the voulme up + power button hold until you see it boot and it should boot into standard recovery. If not it does not matter it's just out of curiosity. if it goes into recovery just select reboot with the power button if android is on his arse just leave phone and it will reboot when screen goes off, might take a minute or two or you can pull battery.

1 - watch the video
2 - Install pdanet program and near the end a box comes up plug your phone in with debugging enabled from development options and it will finish and install the drivers.
3 - Save the bin4ry v17 root zip extract to bin4ry v17 root using your zip program and you should end up with 2 files and a folder (called stuff) in a folder called Bin4ry v17 root. copy this fold and go to start
click my computer and paste the folder into your C:\ drive (just makes less typing when you are looking for it.)
4 - click start and in search bar type cmd then hit enter and a command prompt window should appear saying something like . c:\Users\Your name or computer name here\ ie c:\Users\putbinoot>. need to get to work will try edit later if i get a moment.

yes still 3G. Only noticed as I was in a room inside a building with no windows and all concrete and the signal kept dropping to edge but huawei g300 would stay at H as it supports HSDPA.

Thanks very much mate. Firstly...I love the phone! lol...Quality is really good for a chinese device and the screen is excellent and responsive. I need to get an sd card for it yet but I'll do that on the weekend.

First thing I've checked is the recovery and Android is on his arse!...Does this mean that the standard recovery isnt there or doesnt work? Where do I go from here?

I would love to actually take a rom dump of the phone as it is unrooted for future reference but is this possible? Once I've done this I will proceed with rooting and learning android as this is my first android device.

Thanks again



Edit: Putinboot: I have found the below link regarding installation of recovery. Did you by any chance look into this?

yes i did, but it's easier getting the recovery on using mobileuncle than sp flash all the files you need are in that folder i am linking to through my dropbox and i will link to the update as well. Once you get your sd card you are ready to go, just play with the phone until then. What mobile network are you on and have you unchecked system seetings/more/GPRS transfer prefer mode. As my surfing on 3G was better after unchecking that.

update file here http://dl.dropbox.co...1129-082828.zip

If it does then can you also check if you have recovery on yours or if your android is on his arse as well please? Wonder why they havent installed recovery on these when all android devices are normally meant to have some form of it installed.

Yeh mate its power and volume up at the same time. If it works I think you should be prompted with the recovery menu but if you get android on his arse then you got the same issue as me and putinboot

Putinboot: Can you explain a bit further regarding the update files please.

I downloaded the zip and noticed the update.zip file within it but also another folder which had boot images etc in there. I dont know what this is though.

I think this phone needs its own section now lol.
