Phone is of great quality the display is very nice. Going to try some custom roms soon. Can't figure out how to turn off network speed in notification bar though!

Managed to root using Motochopper Auto Root in a matter of seconds. Installed CWM Recovery too but can't make a backup as I am at my partners and don't have an SD card! Doh!

backup to the internal SDcard, you can also flash from the internal SD, (I'm using CWM-6.0.3.0)

the version of Cai OS my phone came with is 1.3 and says no updated available... but on the official site there is 1.5
i'm making a repack of it now will see what its like.

however MIUI seems the best option for this phone at the moment, at least its what i have been using (gets weekly updates, via ota, think its offical)

This cwm doesn't seem to mount the internal SD card! I got it from xda.

Ah found it but not enough space to backup including data I'll wait till I'm home tomorrow and can put my sd card in.

Just flashed MIUI i had to edit the updater script to remove the getprop lines as the rom wouldn't flash did you have to do this? It's flashed after doing that and booting up right now.

Wow not used MIUI in a while and v5 is BEAUTIFUL. Even the dual sim functions seem to be working? All camera functions...seems to be a perfect official rom.

Ah my homescreen icons move after a reboot they do not remembe their position does this affect you too tillaz?

Excuse me, I have the X9 from 2 days ago; where you have seen the version of Cai OS?
If I go in info I read the build: G800_Z5_YG_C1_V0.2_20130718; do you know which version of Cai OS is it?

It's on their website the one from the phones boot screen.

I fixed my icons problem on miui by moving all apps to internal memory.

I never noticed the missing boot img but I guess there isn't much boot.img editing going on with the closed sources so all romsare made to work on the same configuration?

Any ideas how to allow the market to download any size file I cant find the option! It won't let me download YouTube or Gmail unless I connect to wifi, I'm on three for God sake let me use my unlimited ha ha.

Hey Frankish,

Can you please post a step-by-step guide on how to customize the X9? Perhaps you could edit your first post for that. Newbies like me will need a little bit of help and guidance.

Wow a great start Tillaz is this using the CaiOS rom as a base? Surely we can use AOSP'ish dialers, messaging etc from other MTK6589 phones? Is that what you're doing?

On a side note my MIUI installs apps automatically to sdcard and then on a reboot the apps move position. If you move them to internal they don't move anymore on a reboot.

I've got mine yesterday! Quite exiting but I'm also hesitant to flash the X9 as good instructions are lacking out there. So you would plug a whole and do a great favor.
