because all that stuff is removed as i never seen any use for it, what exactly are people using the engineering mode for ?

 

I used engineering mode to slightly increase the speaker volume for calls/notifications.

A quick update, managed to install tillaz's ASOP rom, much holding of volume & power buttons but took in the end, I am still a nunpty with this stuff. Anyways all apn info easy to enter and an environment I am used to, just need to change that geometric wallpaper and add a few apps.

Having problems with storage, will have to come to terms with link2sd I think. (Edit - seem to have completed that)

other blip atm, I have been using poweramp for music, not often, but if volume buttons are touched when phone is off poweramp loads and plays !!!!!!!! is there a quick simple fix other than uninstall poweramp.

I just remapped the middle button in between the volume keys to camera shutter.
 
If you want you could include those files in your rom (probably better than a useless button ;))
 
You could also Change Key 164 in both of the files with a different action
 
cwm zip:
https://mega.co.nz/#...91QhVLp4dwEsRz0
 
manual:
https://mega.co.nz/#...aYawj06oFYCa8Ak
 
the files are located in /system/usr/keylayout permission as always 644 and owner root:root
 
Long press opens the camera, press in camera app takes a picture

 
 

I have noticed that this button still works when the screen is off I keep turning music on in my pocket by accident! Must have a look when I have the time.


This is the problem I am having atm, on ASOP rom, noticed when middle button is pressed I get a headphone icon in the notifications and poweramp or google music open and play in my pocket etc.

Would love to map the center button to do nothing, would this be a sensible thing to do and how do I edit the files? I recon I am up to swapping peter's files using a file manager (even possible?). Have been looking at 'headphone toggle apps' but they don't look quite right.

Picking up a Moto G on Tuesday so this may become unimportant next week, you all know how that works ;).

the middle button is supposed to do that, that's why its there.

i think i seen someone mention on xda that they re-mapped it to open that camera or something, not sure how though.

Cheers tillaz,  I know it's supposed to do that, just keep bumping the centre button when its off, don't want the camera coming on and snapping away in my pocket either ;-)  i am thinking the case when bangood get it here will help or I may have to get some headphones.(camera thing is in peters post above somewhere)

 

Found a profile app (smart volume) that has allowed me to turn the media volume down and leave the ringer etc, if the music player switches on then I now don't notice it.  getting to quite like the phone but picked up a moto G from tesco yesterday, have to weigh up the pros & cons but notification led, compass & star mapps, bit smaller and I think a bit of modaco imput may swing it, like the 8gig rear and 5 front camera on the X9, just used the front camera to help feed an awkard screw onto a bathroom cabinet - like using a mirror but able to zoom in, brill.

If you use the flashable zip to remap it to camera nothing will happen while it is in your pocket, the camera action only works if the screen is turned on.

 

But you could manually edit the .kl files and just delete whatever is after key 164 (i think)

 

if im not mistaken you need to change ACCDET.kl and mtk-kpd.kl

someone (in another forum) mentioned one time that the cink peax 2 would be identical to the x9 but i couldnt find any information that proves it (also the hardware seems almost identical)

 

If you want to take a look at it here are the kernel sources for the cink peax 2: http://geek.wikoplus...50293adfecb7b18

It seems to be almost identical to the x9!

 

But: The Kernel is 4.1.2... This will not work on CM10.1 right?

Im not sure, i never looked into porting CM just because there isnt a single mtk Device with a CM Rom (official or unofficial) also you would need to implement the whole dual sim functionality

Thanks to Frankish et al for setting up this thread and providing so much helpful information.

 

I received my X9 yesterday and using the information provided I succesfully rooted and installed CWM.

 

I ordered the X9 as a "stop gap" option, as I recently broke my Zopo C2. Considering the price for the phone (Sub £90 after delivery) I am very impressed with the build quality and the standard of the OS it came installed with (Android 4.2.1). Fair enough, the X9 is entirely plastic, but it doesn't feel cheap. While I am missing the screen size of the C2 I am really impressed with how light and slim the phone is. I'm impressed with the sound produced by the back speaker and it has a lovely IPS screen too.

 

I have one question for everyone. Is there any real benefit in switching from the stock firmware to another ROM (MIUI, ASOP, other) at present?

 

Cheers

Hello all fri! 

 

I'm newbie, I had used couple of Android phone before, I'm considered a mid-average Android users, so I'm not hesitant to buy any China Android Phone. Now I'm looking for a good phone with price under 200$ (or higher alittle bit is ok) with have all function as this XiaoCai X9.

 

I just done some research and know Xiaocai just released their new phone: a X9 Pro with MTK6589T, 4.5 inch screen with HD screen, 32Gb Rom, 2Gb Ram...? Could you confirm if these information is true? Cause I didnt have much time to do research...

 

Could you please help me answer some question? Is Xiaocai X9 have all  these functions?

 

- Good screen quality (I love photography, I dont need it like iphone or LG, Pantech's screen... but I need it is good enough)

- MTK6589 is ok, no doubt.

- Battery is ok?

- The most important is: does its camera good enough to take clear, nice photos? AND HOW ABOUT MUSIC QUALITY VIA HEADPHONE? I'm really a fan of music (any types) so I would fall in love with a phone support high quality output via good headphone.

 

I prefer a light phone so phone with screen over 4.7inch is not ok for me. Thank you very much, I'm looking forward to see your help!

Sorry for my bad English :( :)

I made a new Rom images based on X9-W100Port-Frankish-V1.1

Improvements:
Removed everything Thl,

  • Removed Thl bootlogo
  • Recoded to have AOSP Lockscreen (was hardcoded all over the place)
  • Default Jellybean lockscreen background like this
  • Removed settings for thl lockscreen

Changed to modem.img version V6.P8
All gps fixes done (gps.conf & build.prop)
Rooted the boot.img

And found a way to store volume configuration in the rom!
Clear and loud on default.

I didn't find a way in the sources to change the lockscreen wallpaper dynamically. But for themers, its easy to find in framework-res
Otherwise use holo-lockscreen or something like that.

X9-W100Port-Nhede-V1.0.zip

Thanks to Frankish for the previous rom, and to RiseAgainst (from www.android-hilfe.de) for collecting all the info.

@Nhede

 

Do you think it would be possible to modify the ROM so that one can select that all calls and/or texts are made from only one of the two sim card slots?

@zurpher

 

When you have inserted two sim cards, it ask if you want the dual button interface, or you want a leading sim card (single button interface).

I didn't investigate it any further but it sounds like the single button interface selection, is what you want.

 

As far as I know, it is not possibe to assign one card to texting, and the other to calls.

Offcource you can modify the rom, but understanding and changing the decompiled smali code is not a simple thing to do, and will take a lot of time.
