  1. So to install this you need to make the system partition 180mb... I'm reading here about something called TPT to do this. Separately you need to create an additional ext3 partition on the SD card to trick the phone into thinking it's got more internal storage than it has.
  2. This ROM looks interesting. Apparently the most modern for this old device. A few questions to those who have installed. How is performance ? Can you encrypt wifi tethering (can't in the Eco CM ROM) Also what does GAPPS stand for ? Presumably Google apps ? Thanks
  3. As someone else mentioned, I've had this ROM on since last summer. Not sure how much it's been updated since then. I'm back to my ZTE Blade for a while, as the newer phone died recently. The only problem I found with this ROM at the time was that wifi tethering would only work without encryption. Has this been fixed since last year ? Cheers
  4. The package seems to be for the G3 ? Are you sure this will work with the G2 ? The last time I attempted this using another link to a root install on here it messed the phone up needing a factory reset. Also from what I understand (which may be wrong) rooting the G2 this way doesn't install a recovery partition ? How do you upgrade the OS from there ? What about the Jiayu Android App ? No one seems to mention it here, but presumably this contains links to root installers that are more specific to each model of handset and more likely to succeed ?
  5. Factory reset seems to have cleared the mess (Touch wood). Phone feels even faster than before for some reason. Anyway, think I will leave rooting this for now. It's just a strange mess of info all over the place with regards these Chinese brands, without any clear base and there is no community as such. And this forum is clearly as dead as a dodo.
  6. Ok, so followed the instructions and it did it all, but on restart there is no super user app, graphics have gone slow and jerky and settings crashes if I select tethering. Can someone who actually knows something about this please offer some advice to restore the phone to how it was? (Please save the smart ass comments though) Wish I had never bothered messing with this, there is no solid community around these Chinese handsets I really miss the days of the ZTE blade which has a great community.
  7. Hi, so what's the current state of play for rooting G2 dual core ? Also anyone had any luck with putting Jellybean on ?

    Jiayu G2 Review

    Hi, are there generic flip cases that will fit the G2 that are intended for another phone ? It's mostly gel back cases that I see from Hong Kong. Just wondered if there was a case I could use, available in the UK (Note not worried about hole for camera) Thanks
  9. There's no ROMS sub board for this manufacturer as there are for other makes that I could see on this site. This was the closest equivalent. But maybe create one, or perhaps (I don't know) I get the impression the phone doesn't have that many that are stable and usable yet hence the development board ?
  10. Hi I'm looking to get a new phone, and have seen this Dual Sim version of the G330 from Far East suppliers going quite cheap. I believe it's model is U8825D. Couple of questions, because I'm going to want to hack it. Do the ROMs here work with this ok ? I did search but there's only a couple of threads I can find that mention either G330 or U8825D, one called Badu (?) who says his ROM works with this model. And generally, how do the custom ROMs here compare speed/performance wise to the stock ROM that comes with this line of Huawei handsets ? And last... I'm assuming these Dual Sim G330s work ok in the UK ? Cheers.
  11. Should add, encryption doesn't appear to be working though in this version. Still better than nothing.
  12. Right, there is a way round it which i'm using now. There's some beta I've found here: not sure if it's old or new, hard to see on Opera on my Blade, but if anyone is having trouble with this, search for a link on the page that takes you to: wifi_tether_v3_1-pre110.apk This is working for me. The official Wifi Tether on Google Play does not work with this ROM. But this does.
  13. Nice rom. Finally upgraded from fish and chips. However,no wifi tethering apps work anymore here. I need tether for internet. Any way round this? Thanks
  14. Sorry still on R2, In r2 Zero Conf/Bonjour packets seem to be broken. I was told that 2.3 Roms supported Zero Conf, but apparently not it turns out ??
  15. Something I meant to ask the other day. The proximity sensor in R2 is not functioning. I tried to enter that code that is mentioned on the first page. But the code fails. Any other ideas ? Thanks.
  16. I think the scrolling was to do with this thing 'Swipe Pal' It's seems pretty cool. It's a 100% incompatible with a live background from the Market called Thunderstorm or something. Not that I'm into live backgrounds, I think they are daft nonsense, but just for a laugh I tried it. Anyway it will hang the phone when it loads. WPA 2 wifi tether seems to not broadcast its network name properly anymore. It does for a minute or so but then stops. In any event, wifi tether doesn't seem to work properly when encrypted. I think it works without encryption. I'm using Wifi Tether from Market as a workaround which works.
  17. Thanks. This is exciting. It's my first new ROM in a year, apart from half an hour transitioning over with CM Nightly to update to GEN 2. I'm coming from Jap Jellyfish ...7 I think it was which has served me well but become old. And here's some feedback: Apart from the long-overdue app drawer overlaid on the background which is good, I can't see Nemus has anything going for it really. Compared to Launcher Pro it's slow and non-customizable. Scrolling speed in lists seems poor in this ROM compared to JJ7, like in GO SMS Pro which can be a bit sluggish anyway, scrolling the list of contacts is not far from being unbearable now, same in the Contacts app where it was much smoother before. I have to wonder if it's something to do with this font this ROM uses ? It is specific to this ROM ? I didn't notice it in CM7? Nightly. I had a quick go with a 2d game, 'Glow Hockey'. Now that seemed even faster and smoother than in JJ7. So I wonder has this ROM got the hardware graphics enabled ? The phone seems to be constantly sending and receiving data, despite me turning off Sync apps and Background sync. Any ideas ? Also Location/GPS was on by default. WIFI seems ok Volume seems a bit loud at the quietest setting. Can I ask a general question? Is 'Maps' considered a system app ? I want to restore my Map data from before, but not if it's going to mess up wifi or something else on the phone. Cheers
  18. This is what I just installed. Yeah it's not stable by the looks of it. If you hit 'reboot' the phone freezes while rebooting, and I had to pull the battery and reboot from the button, then it's ok again. I don't know why. I thought (imagined) this all-in-one approach wiped all the caches and stuff automatically first ?
  19. Ok got GEN2+ CM on there now. Crickey it's slow, must be cause I'm used to Lanucher Pro and stuff. Okay so I want to put Fish and Chips on now. This needs Clockwork from what I can read on its first page ? Have I still got Clockwork on here, or did GEN2+CM7 zap it ?
  20. What is this app actually for ? It's for flashing the phone with a new ROM ? Backing up the existing one ? Or something else ? It's like Clockwork that runs normally on the phone ?
  21. Also if I want to back up in an easy fashion beforehand, I don't know what to use anymore. Titanium Back up stopped working for me about 8 months ago. It just hangs when trying to back up. Any other alternatives ?
  22. Alright thanks Guys. Hope this works ok. I will start with CM then first. Fish and Chips looked good, it looked very fast from the demo. Do I still need ZTE REcovery manager ?
  23. I's been about year since I was tinkering around here, although I did post a question some months back. I've still got Jap JellyFish 7 or something. I've got a GEN 1 Phone (Orange San Fran), I checked it with that pigfish thing. First of all I need to make it into a GEN 2 phone. I have Clockwork installed from back then. What's the quickest way to do that first ? Afterwards I want to install a new GEN 2 Rom, like this Fish and Chips I like the look of, some of the info seems to have been deleted from here in places. There seems to be fragmented bunches of different apps on different sites, but if there's one true path that every uses can you point me there ? Also is this ZTE REcovery manager now necessary ? I don't remember it a year ago. thanks
