  1. I have an x1033 Dual SIM, rooted and bootloader unlocked. I have CWM Recovery (actually PhilZ Touch Custom Recovery from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2639583). I copied a ROM on the phone and tried to update it, but now it seems it is not on the phone, so I am stuck. If I boot to recovery and connect the phone to PC, it is not seen as ADB device, but Android. I guess that means Debugging was not enabled? I don;t know what to do, any solutions would be appreciated. If I could get ADB working I guess I could try uploading a ROM. If the phone had a card slot, nothing like this would not happen....
  2. Seems like there is an issue, although I clear Dalvik cache, cache partition and wipe data/factory reset, all my data is still there. Not sure this is normal, although it kind of makes sense, as otherwise the ROM .zip file would be gone too. But usually when you factory restore an Android phone, all data is gone. I also get a message saying "E:unknown volume for path [/sd-ext]", is that normal? CWM version is I am trying to update ROM to hopefully get rid of this problem: http://www.modaco.com/topic/373540-hardware-issue-no-sound-and-strange-behaviour/ So far it seems like it is not working.
  3. Thank you, really appreciate it! Yes, I have root and CWM on a X1033 Dual Sim 16GB. I installed 4.4.4 optimized form the 1st link. Thank a lot mate
  4. I am on 4.4.2 and trying to update to 4.4.4. Not sure what you mean. Can you give me more details?
  5. Are there any guides? Or maybe a CWM method to do it?
  6. Barclays app also doesn't work on rooted phones. But it also doesn't work on Dual SIM phones! FirstDirect and RBS apps do work on rooted phones (and Dual SIM). In my opinion it is very difficult to imagine someone takes your phone, roots it, installs something to track your logins and returns it to you... Really... the phone is quite personal. Let me play with it. Root is useful. Are there any cases of people loosing money because of a rooted phone? And if yes, how many? Why most banks do not care about this? Do you check if the PC is used using Admin account or Root ???
  7. Though by unlocking the bootloader you lost any warranties. So in a way they offered a good service by not making a fuss about that.
  8. My phone started making a high pitch noise, then no sound. I could say there is a small chance some water got in there (but cannot be sure). But doesn't this phone have 2 speakers, one in the back? Which one is used when you put a call "on speaker"? Restarting sometimes made it work for a few minutes. Not any more. Could it be the speaker? Seems to be very related to software as well as when the sound is not working, no video can be played (This video cannot be played), as if the drivers are missing. I cannot film a movie either. Does this makes sense to anyone? I am thinking about trying to replace the speaker myself (I have no warranty as I unlocked the bootloader) but cannot find any tutorials. I would pay to get it fixed but not sure where to go yet and I do love to get my hands dirty myself. Thanks!
  9. You still helped, thank you ! I forgot to mention that I was using ART. It might interest others, I managed to duplicate the problem on another Moto G (single sim 8gb this time) using ART, with the same 2 apps that gave me problems: FastConnect from Google Play and iReal Pro from Amazon AppStore. iReal Pro caused the same issue, freezing the phone and nothing helped until changed to Dalvik. I heard ART is faster, but obviously I'll keep away from it from now on.
  10. It might not help, but my Moto G freezed. After trying anything and everything, I remembered I switched from Dalvik to ART. Switched back to Dalvik and problems solved. Are you on ART by any chance?
  11. Ok, I selected Yes and rebooted, Android is upgrading appeared on the screen, first 189 apps then after 43 or something it rebooted again (the reboot did not display the warning about the bootloader being unlocked) and then Android is upgrading appeared again on the screen, this time 142 apps. After all finished, nothing changed, it still did the same. In the end, I changed from ART to Dalvik. This seems to have fix the problem! Or maybe just postponed it. Will see in the future. No more ART for me for now.
  12. I don't have experience with the recovery. I do have paid version of ROMTollBox so used that to Boot into recovery. I get a screen saying "CWM-based Recovery v6.0.4.6" I tried wipeing Dalvik first, I got the messages: "E:unknown volume for path [/sd-ext] Dalvik Cache Wiped" Is that normal? Then I selected Reboot and got a message saying "RootAccess possibly lost. Fix?" Is this normal? Should I answer Yes?
  13. My Moto G (16GB Dual SIM) froze while installing an app from Amazon Appstore. As the battery cannot be removed, I kept the power button pressed till it turned off. On restart, I get a message saying "Android is upgrading... Optimising app 1 of 1". My phone is rooted (and bootloader unlocked). Anyone had the same issue and knows what can be done ? This message just sits on the screen, the progress circle freezes, and then I have to keep pressing on Power button till the phone resets again. After this second power up, the phone usually does another reboot by itself (but this time I do not get the warning about the unlocked bootloader) and finally it displays the message again but this time after a few seconds boots normally. Even after this "normal" boot, the phone will reset itself when I try to uninstall an app. Don't understand why when I try to uninstall... Any ideas anyone? To unlock bootloader/root I followed this tutorial: http://www.modaco.com/topic/370636-the-clearest-simplest-up-to-date-rooting-tutorial-ive-found-so-far-works-on-442/ The phone worked fine rooted for more than one month, till this happened. Thank you!
  14. I followed the tutorial on my Dual SIM XT1033, and it worked. Thank you, glossywhite! I do feel the tutorial could be improved, especially the part about rooting, the steps are a bit off. Maybe we should post it here and work on it.
  15. I have a Dual SIM 16GB xt1033, do you think the tutorial will work? Oh, and does it matter I switched to ART before unlocking/rooting?
  16. New update Acer_V370_AV061.RV07RC30_WW_GEN1 123.87MB Changelog : - Update Digital Clock Widget (v 2.01.3041) - Add Google Drive - Update Swype - Update modem to version P33 - Remove recording function during call (be careful, you will loose this facility) - Add preferred install location - Update APN list - Fix issue: when getting out of sleep mode, compass values are wrong until smartphone is moved on horizontal axis - Fix issue: inaccurate information provided when running GPS applications
  17. I have OneTapCacheCleaner or something like that, but cleaning cache is not enough. Anyway, hard to understand Acer decision to put such a low amount of memory. I guess you get what you pay for.
  18. I was hoping for more numbers, but you do realise 124mb is not a lot and the next few updates for the few biggest apps like chrome, google search, facebook, will take more from those 124mb and probably in one month or so you will get the same message as me? For a 50mb app like chrome, 80mb was not enough for update, probably needs about double the space to unpack.
  19. Maybe you rooted and swapped partitions etc ? Can you please provide more info? I will share as much data as possible from mine, maybe you could do the same from your: I did notice that even though I select install to SD, apps will still go to Internal Storage, anyone else noticed that? I would be surprised this will only happen on mine. Of course I tried moving them to SD manually. This is how it looks now:
  20. LeWill, Facebook, Chrome, Google+ etc are not on your SD!
  21. Yes, you could uninstall some bloatware and increase internal storage space. On mine, unrooted, I cannot update Chrome anymore as there is no more space. Anyone else having this problem? I moved all I could to SD, but you cannot move Chrome, can you... I am starting to refer to this phone in terms like crappy..
  22. Seems this thread is slowly dying... not enough people bought this phone I guess...
  23. If you already presented it, there must have been a section where you presented it... The ROM in your signature is for other phones, not for the Acer, right?
  24. I'll keep you guys informed of how things will go. I ordered it from expansys Ireland because it was not sold on the UK website at the time (I am one of the first to buy it in the UK). I registered my product. Then tried contacting them. First problem, could not select V370 from their drop lists. Managed to contact them somehow and got the following: As per our records, I could see that the phone has been delivered and purchased in France. Regarding your enquiry, as you have contacted Acer UK. We are only able to assist UK customers with warranty and technical queries. If you select the link below and select your country, you will be taken to your local Acer website, where the Service and Support section will contain contact details for your local Acer service centre. http://www.acer.com/worldwide/support/service.htm If you do not reside in France, then please let us know the place of your residence. For further assistance, please do not hesitate to e-mail or contact us on 0871 760 1000 (UK), 0818 202 210 (Eire), from Monday to Friday, between 09:00 and 06:00 PM, BST. I replied: I am holding in my hand an invoice from Expansys UK Ltd, SL7 1EY, UK. I ordered the phone from expansys.ie. Order ref is xxx, invoice number: xxx-UK, date: 04-Jul-2013. As you can see, never in this process was involved France. They replied: Thank you for providing the conformation and the details, I will update the records. Before that can you please conform once the serial number of the phone. To locate the serial number of the unit, you can use the link below. http://acer--uk.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7828 Regarding the query, I would like to inform you that from your description of this fault your phone may need to be brought into our repair centre for DOA assessment. • Store name and exact or approximate date of purchase. • Your name and address (From where do you want the product to be picked and delivered back to). • Contact telephone number (If you are providing your mobile number, please let us know if you want to be updated by SMS). • E-mail address • login password. We would like to inform, UPS will provide the packaging box for our customers at a cost of £15.50. This is a premium service and is an option provided to our customers. It is covered for insurance against damage in transit. UPS will take care of packaging and shipment. The UPS premium service is an option and its not compulsory. If you don't want to proceed with the premium service, you can send the unit to the repair centre by arranging the own packaging box. Please let us know if you would like to proceed with the option? As you can see I am encouraged to pay an extortionate amount of money for a return. I only paid £10 to have it special delivered from Ireland, although the invoice came from the UK, so I suspect it was delivered from UK. How can they ask more money for a return than the money paid for the initial delivery?? They also missed some lines in the copy paste and made the message hard to understand. To me it sounded like they were asking me for my password and email. I also did not like the fact I was asked for the serial number, even though my product was already registered! I asked them about it, and they replied: Regarding the Ups premium service, premium service is an option provided to our customers and its not compulsory. some customers will accept it as it is covered for insurance against damage in transit. As your product is inwarranty, we will take care of the shipping free of charge, Ups premium service is a paid service optional not compulsory. Regarding the service centre: our service centre is based in Uk in Ashford, Kent, TN23 7SH. Please provide us the required details, so that we can book your product in for repair. So let me get this, they will take care of the shipping free of charge now???? Check the previous email, they said I can either pay £15 for their PREMIUM service, or I can pay my own arrangements! What is the truth ? I will soon find out I guess. The whole system is silly, even though you have your product registered you are still asked for serial number and model and so on if you want to ask them anything. Hope this will help others get a feeling of what they have to do in case of problems and what they will be facing if they decide contacting them.
  25. And Nexus 4 it's not Dual SIM. On the other hand, although I am the one who started this thread and promoted this phone everywhere, I must say I had all sorts of problems with it. yesterday, I lost signal after 5 min of conversation. Tried on both SIMs, one on Giffgaff one on EE. Hard to believe it was something not related to the phone. I picked up another phone on Lyca network and could talk without any issues. 10% of my touchscreen has become unresponsive. I am so scared of the customer support from Acer that I am postponing contacting them to send it to them. I did contact them right after buying the phone, and they said I would have to pay £15 to send it to them using insured DHL or something. I said well that is a lot, considering Interlink 24h is insured and would cost about £10. They should have business deals with couriers and get even lower tariffs. And why would I need to pay for their defective phone? I got a weird answer saying something like well you could send it to us free of charge... so first they tell you you HAVE to pay £15, and only if you retaliate you get to find out you could send it free of charge.
