Hi, many people have said on the net that the osd & xolo was made by Gigabyte, but looking through the build.prop of the xolo gingerbread rom it says:



ro.product.manufacturer=FIH


FIH = FOXCONN INTERNATIONAL HOLDINGS

surely

isn't it ?


no wonder when i contacted gigabyte about unlocking the bootloader they didn't have a clue what i was on about :huh:

edit*


it even says it on this pdf http://massistance.g...tibility_pl.pdf

Orange told me it was made by ZTE, they also told me that the moon was made of diamonds, Elvis was there CEO, Accrington Stanley would win the premier league next year and that they provided 'excellent' customer service.

All highly likely apart from the last one of course. :P

Europa League place at best I think, their attack isn't good enough for the title.

Do you have any Contact Address for them? If all of us email them then maybe they can give it to us, if lots of people ask?

Which build.prop were you actually looking at and where is it? The only reference to "ro.product.manufacturer=" I can find in any build.prop(of any zip or on the phone) says "Intel".
