Peter it seems to be a bug as I can't enable them to vibrate! I've never noticed as I usually turn it off. Hmm..

If I go changing it to camera someone will want me to change it to music again and then someone will want it for messaging etc. I will possibly upload multiple different ones in a flash able zip format so people can make their own minds up on what it does.

That might be true. On the other hand the middle key currently has no function at all, so any function included might be better than nothing.

Ahh it is default music player but I forgot to add the function as it is a W100 port.

@Frankish, please could you confirm a few things about the Xiaocai X9?

 

1. Does it have front notification LED light?

2. Does it have a "compass"? Does it effect the use of GPS programs or Google Maps/Navigation?

3. Did the GPS fix posted by Dakok finally fix any GPS issues and jittery blue arrow in Google Maps?

4. Does it only support 3G WCDMA frequenices of 850 / 2100 MHz?

5. What is your overall opinion of the phone now having had it for some time?

 

Thanks in advance!

Getting bored waiting for the announcement of the WCDMA version of the Xiaomi Red rice phone, so I am considering buying a X9 instead.

Frankish, do u have any idea how to remove this ugly white THL Logo @ bootup

 

edit:

 

Its probably the file "boot_logo" in /system/media/images but i cant get anything else to work. I tried to convert a png image to a raw rgb file and then i converted it with to565 to a rle file. Some images dont show up at all and some are completely distorted.

1. No.
2. No compass but maps still works ok.
3. Dakoks gps fix along with downloading EPO data made gps totally usable with no jumping around or anything.
4. Not sure about frequencies but what it is advertised to support.
5. Still love the phone it's great for the price the screen is gorgeous.

MIUI looks really good on it too and has OTA updates every Friday.

Also it isnt an official Version.

Battery life is amazing for this phone I was so surprised the best battery life I ever got on an android phone was around 3.5 hours of screen on time. On this phone with 2 SIM cards active I hit regularly over the 5.5 hour screen on time. Simply amazing to be honest.

Hmm it appears there is a very limited selection of Lewa v5 supported phones so far we don't have one for our x9 on their site unfortunately!

Does anyone know if it is possible to select the installation path in MIUI?

 

It looks like MIUI automatically installs everything onto the sdcard and it looks like there is no option to move the apps to the internal storage.

No that was one of my issues with it and nobody could seem to help. You can manually move apps to data with titanium or link2sd. But it's still a pain!

Sorry for maybe asking again:

 

How could I manage to delete the internal storage?

 

I want to have the "real", inserted SD-Card as only storage.

 

Is there a solution to get rid of this?

Yes it's possible to delete a line/comment it out in vold.fstab. When on MIUI I swapped my external sd card to show as internal then disabled the built in storage.

It was the Chinese Moon Festival on 19th September this year. As I understand things, the Chinese have a week or two holiday around this festival! Probably explains why there was a gap in the MIUI releases.

Thanks.

Could you explain some more details or link a "vold.stab-editing-guide"?
