WINDOWS 8 SUCKS!!!

No. It can do everything that Windows 7 can and more. And start screen is even more functional and shows more than start menu. If you don't know how to use it, don't say that Windows 8 sucks.

What can it do more, the new start screen may be dynamic but i can live without it plus i dont have a touch screen monitor on my laptop, windows 8 is only for touchscreen devices like tablets and others.

i know how to use it, i just dont like it, i dont want it, so it SUCKS

Download Classic Shell and you can then configure Windows 8 desktop similar to the windows 7 one.

Windows 8 is AWESOME!!! So many posibilities! Custom wallpapers in perfect Metro UI, fonts, notifications like Ubuntu! (wait, Ubuntu have it first) and if you dont like Metro, you can easily install ,for example, Gnome, KDE, OpenBox.... Wait, This is possible only on Linux, so.... yeah, all windows suck, and microsoft only want your money

This might help - http://www.howtogeek...-how-to-get-it/. They have fixed the search and added a start button, and you can skip the modern screen at boot! :D

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

:excl:A WARNING TO ALL G300 OWNERS! Please Read! (The Flash Memory Problem!) :excl:

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

Spoiler

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Spoiler

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

(If not, Press it anyway!)

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)
