Well, further news.
Dealsprime have just contacted me to say that Hong Kong Post are no longer accepting packages, especially ones containing batteries such as phones. Therefore, I either pay an extra $15 for DHL shipping, or cancel the order for a refund.
Hmmm. I'm in two minds, really. One the one hand, I don't actually need the phone - I was just buying it to play around with before (probably) passing it along to a relative. From experience, I know that I'll almost certainly be stung for VAT if the phone comes via DHL so the additional cost would be more than just a tenner or so for the post. At less than 80 quid, it's an unbelievable bargain. If I end up paying another 25% on top of that, I'll be less happy.
Probably best for me to cancel the order, really, but I'll mull it over tonight before I make my decision.
One thing I'll say about Dealsprime is their communications are pretty good. Prompt replies to queries in good (native) English so no difficulties there.
That is pretty damn disappointing! Seems a bit odd but oh well.
So I have MIUI rom on my X9 just rooted it ( again ) I`ve found a MIUI gapps, but looking inside it doesn`t have googleplay etc..
Other gapps I`ve checked say not to install on 4.2.1
Frankish.. Did you get google play etc on yours? if so how and where
Just go to miuiandroid.com and download the 4.2.x gapps and install. As mentioned install rom, let it boot, then install gapps.
cant seem to edit the build.prop file in es file exp. ive edited and i get a popup for the line terminator and i select dos. the i get error occured message
and file isnt saved.
I had this issue which phone is this on? It's down to the boot.img, even though you have root the system is not writeable. You need an edited boot.img to make it insecure or you can make a generic update.zip and flash the modified (on your pc) build.prop through recovery.
Once i flashed insecure boot.img you can write to system at any time and use pc apps like android commander.
Or dalyers option should work not sure if it sticks after a reboot though. Just gone and bought a THL W200 i'm pretty sure i'm going to hell and the Mrs may disown me when i should be saving for a car!!.
