  1. Urgent Advice please ........... returning G510 due to same recuring fault (SIM card loose over time & no signal) Y550 for £55, or G620 / Moto G 4G for £115, or Experia E3 for £90 Y550 would be OK I think but still concerned over 4Gb ROM limitation on apps. Had to be prudent with apps on G510 to keep 100Mb + free. Is Y550 any better ? Thanks in advance

  3. Hi, sorry for basic Q's..... can I install this on stock UK G510-0100 running B195 update from UK Vodafone ? Do i need to root & install TWRP or similar ? How can I get back to current stock in case of return ? Am at point of taking this back & getting Moto G - keeps running out of memory, doesn't recognize SD card, have to clear cache on certain apps etc. Thanks

    Tips & Tricks!

    Thanks again Flibblesan Just rec'd warranty replacement G510 and couldn't remember how to get rid of the Huawei screen lock - priceless info. Now have standard Android lockscreen, with KK background and KK Launcher.
  5. UPDATE - I must have had a dodgy handset. Developed a hardware fault with loose battery connections - swapped out at ASDA for another. This one had completely different VF apps on it - got it home & did update & worked fine first time. VF don't seem to be very knowledgable on these handsets - hopefully this helps someone.
  6. Hi, have recently bought a UK G510 - prompted me for online software update but fails each time. Download and click install - reboots to Recovery & says "OTA update", then "Installation aborted" retruns to recovery menu and have to reboot. Has to re-donwload the 142Mb update each time I try....... How do I download the update and "update via SD card" as prompted by the system update tool ? Current version = G510-0100V100R001C02B171 New version = G510-0100V100R001C02B195 (G510-0100_Vodafone_B195) It's Vodafone branded bought from Asda. Am running with OVIVO SIM (which uses Vodafone network) - is this the problem ? Is it worth going into a VF store ? Thanks in advance EDIT - sorry forgot to add - not interested in rooting or custom ROM - happy with stock with different launcher etc. Just want latest stock image.
  7. anyone else any ideas ? Vodafone are telling me they will do it but as warranty repair so send off for a week or so ............. not best pleased at that as seen reports on other forums of this update installing fine.
  8. Hi SS - thanks for your post. Is this from personal experience ? Tried all the above - when restarting will buttons depressed - black screen initially, followed by solid purple screen. No messages, nothing......... Had to remove battery to reboot - no upgrade has happened. Any ideas ?
  9. tonyb - sorry only just seen this - did not get an alert for some reason. In a way comforting that someone else has same issue - VFone are not interested in helping - suggested via warranty repair !!?? What network are you on ? Was going to try a VF PAYG SIm to see if that helps, but not sure if worth it........... Anyone else any ideas ??
  10. thanks again for user views - much appreciated. Will try and get one via Orange upgrade next week.
  11. Thanks for your opinions - much appreciated. Am tempted I think ..........
  12. Thanks Ken - is the 4" screen a decent improvement over Blade 3.5 ?. The 510 does sound bigger but sounds like real-world Y300 screen size is better.
  13. Thanks for responses - yes concerned over 512 RAM (same as Blade) but am not intensive user so may be OK for me. Very tempted - either this or cheap chinese import with bigger screen.
  14. Thanks hajj - tried my own removing langs, but still got same error on first boot. Yours is fine tho - thanks.
  15. Hi all, looking to move from ZTE Blade (CM10) to Y300 - is it real-world a big improvement ? Is the bigger screen & res. better for viewing on. Camera any good ? Games OK (Temple run etc. nothing too taxing) Thanks in advance
  16. Works for any app with similar setting (ie. launcher as default - clear default and get asked which one you want when press home). HTH
  17. Any links for where purchased from please ? I found it at Androidmall.co.uk. Is it OK ?? am after Android 4+, big screen, half decent camera, WiFi, BT & GPS. Anything else is a bonus. Thinking of Huawei G300 from UK. Thanks in advance
  18. OK - have one reserved in my local Argos (same place I got my trusty ZTE Blade from). Is this worth upgrading to from Blade ? Have read plenty on it & sounds good - wonder if there is anything better for that money. My Blade is running CM10 fine, although a bit laggy at times it if fine as is second phone (work BBerry). Thanks in advance

  20. Hi all - have S2E installed & some games/apps and have moved apps & data to SDCard. Still have only 50Mb free - can't update FB via GPLAY. Any ideas ??
  21. Thanks guys - wondering why it wasn't working. But AUTO doesn't seem to do anything on the brightness slider - stays the same. Any ideas ? Also for me the icon on the LHS of bar should be white not blue to be consistent. Prob - dialler mod does not work - installs OK but no change same solid background. can you do same transparent mod on contacts ? Contacts in dialler are OK with dark background, but Contacts app itself is still black on white. transparent statusbar did not work for me - amy I missing something to change in settings ? or should try a different combo ? anyone know of a flashable mod to change the green MMS icon to ISC blue ? Have done it manually via .png files on the desktop & lockscreen, but really want the APPS icon changing too. Not worries about a complete theme - happy with having standard icons for everything else.
  22. Hi all, have read a lot of recent pages, but is this CM10.1 ROM now reliable enough for daily use ? & enjoy 4.2.2 features/mods. I am just about to upgrade to most recent version of Daemend continuation CM10 - previous versions fine if a little laggy sometimes. Thanks in advance
  23. if this has not been resolved already ...... suggest wipe & reinstall as i have both on 16/11 with no issues
