  1. I am in university halls of residence. I have setup a Wi-Fi hotspot in my room using a generic router by connecting from the ethernet out port in the wall to a ethernet LAN port and disabling DHCP on the router. This works perfectly for my Windows 7 laptop. It connects to the router and then to the uni internet without issues. However, although my Samsung Galaxy S3 (International i9300) can detect the network, if I just try to connect to the network as I would any other it gets stuck when obtaining an IP address. After messing around with it for a bit i found that I could get the phone to connect by going into the advanced settings and choosing "static" instead of "DCHP". I don't know what I was really meant to enter for IP Address, gateway, subnet, DNS 1 and DNS 2. The router has the IP of when i connect it directly to my laptop via ethernet so I tried that as the gateway, I set the IP address to something like (So that it was similar but different), I set the subnet to and the DNS servers I used google's ( and This got me connected to the router but there doesn't appear to be any internet connection. I therefore thought that I had entered wrong information for the network (I was only guessing after all). Therefore I went into ipconfig in Windows and copied the default gateway and DNS servers and used a similar IP address (Last number different). I had the same issue. Does anyone have any suggestions? I only want Wi-Fi in my room for mobile.
  2. I have a ZTE Blade Gen1, what ROM should I install? The only ROM I know about is cyanogen, but do I need gen2 for that? ideally, i want a fast ROM as my phone i very slow. Thanks
  3. Doesn't matter, sorry. Fixed now :D
  4. Hi everyone, I have a very slow ZTE Blade (Gen 1) What can I do to speed it up? I have very few apps, few widgets but do not want to overclock the CPU. Half of the time, the phone thinks I have either let go or am still holding my finger on the screen when I haven't or am not. What do you suggest? I have made a video of me using the phone here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGRPrqK2_8Y (it may help to view it on YouTube in 1080p) Should I install a faster ROM on it? if so, which ROM and how do I do this? I have already rooted
  5. so this makes a backup of my phone which I can recover to if all goes wrong?
  6. Orange San Francisco / ZTE Blade (Gen1) OLED, not TFT i think too
  7. What can be done to minimise the chance of bricking an android phone whilst flashing a custom ROM? Also, what can be done once bricked? can it be recovered or not?
  8. I am completely new to rooting and flashing and therefore do not really know where to start. I have an Orange San Francisco, in the "about phone" section on this phone it says: Firmware Version: 2.1-update1 Baseband version: P729BB01 Kernel Version: 2.6.29 Build number: OUK_P729BV1.0.0B05 At times, the phone runs really slow and therefore I want a ROM which will be faster than the stock one. I also want to get rid of the awful Stock Apps put on by Orange as they will be slowing my phone too. What do I need to do in order to do this and what are the risks of doing so? Thank you so much if you can help me.
