Do you know which resolution the display has? That's the only disadvantage of the Tureis.

I think the Tureis could also run at 800MHz if specified.

If the display is better on that device it's something good. But I absolutely hate that Vodafone branding.

it's qvga same as tureis, infact the back housing is identical, main bonus is the 512mb ram and msm7225a cpu that can be overclocked to 1008mhz

Maybe I will buy one. The only thing I don't understand is why they are sticking with Android 2.3.x.

4.x. has been released a long time ago, it's about time to react.

Guys, I have this phone from Vodafone Ireland. There is no related forum section so I'm writing here. I can't root this phone by any way. So far I've tried many "one click" tools, searched on google and found nothing. X-ray application shows that device is NOT vulnerable for any rooting exploits. What can I do ? Where I can find help ? Maybe here ?

List of applications that I've tried so far :

SuperOneClick
ZhuoDashi
SRSRoot
UnlockRoot
UniversalAndroot
OneClickRoot

If anyone can help and need more information about this phone just let me know. I'm really desperate about rooting this one :)

I have no idea how to dump it. So far I found that I can only dump /system on non rooted phone.

I tried to dump all the content on the phone, but I could just get /system folder
If we don't find a way to root it we will never be able to get CWM and Custom Roms...
Some ideas?

Edit:

I found that: did someone try?

Edit 2 : I've dumped what I could from this phone (recovery.img is broken due to my noob failure flashing some other recovery.img from other device) Hope that some of u guys can make something nice with this :

- dump by romdump v82b: http://www.sendspace.com/file/dp3ol4

- dump by dd: boot.img http://www.sendspace.com/file/ehhf3r

Edit 3: @dedeswim could u upload here your recovery.img I hope u still have original one ?

Finally! I was able to get one here: http://cgi.ebay.de/w...em=261452801212

 

As I already ported Cyanogenmod 10.2 / Android 4.3.1 to the original Tureis, I'm very confident that I can also do a port for this device. :)

BTW, the kernel source is here:

I think that will do. :D Hopefully it's just a little bit of merge/build/trial & error :)

I've made a romdump of two versions and dumped a signed update .zip (ripped it from the /cache folder after interrupting the OTA updater):
 

ro.build.display.id=VodafoneSmartChat-MSM7225A-V02c-Sep272012-Vodafone-UK
ro.build.version.incremental=20120926.231218.25481

http://schmatzler.de...V02c-Sep272012/



ro.build.display.id=VodafoneSmartChat-MSM7225A-V03a-Dec062012-Vodafone-UK
ro.build.version.incremental=20121206.095513.8829

http://schmatzler.de...V03a-Dec062012/



System update from the September version to the December version.
Contains a lot of binary patches, so be careful:

I hope that I can port over Clockworkmod, I'm working on that at the moment.

I've successfully ported ClockworkMod 6.0.3.7 to the ZTE P752D. You can check out a tutorial how to flash it here. Now I can seriously start porting Android 4.3.1 over to the device.
