  1. How do you think this phone compares to the HDC Legend? They seem similar and are both HDC but are they different or just similar.

  2. to me its like a give and take situation spark-better features but less specs and legend-better specs but less features :/

  3. Hola, tengo este teléfono desde hace 1 día y no puedo utilizarlo correctamente, lo enciendo, todo muy bien pero en el momento que entra el bloqueo no vuelve, se queda en negro y tengo que quitar la bateria para que vuelva arrancar. Cuando está cargando no ocurre. Sabes que le puede pasar? Muchas gracias

  7. What about Legend? I am confused because FastCardTech told me it supports, but sometimes they get wrong.

    1. You mean the compass? The Legend also doesn't have a compass.

    1. Hi :-) Check out the pictures above, you can find the "little box" app in the system/app folder, just rename it (from *.apk to *.old for example), reboot and it should be gone. I don't know about any custom roms, sorry.

      Delete
    2. thanks Colonel ! I renamed the APK in system/app folder and now the floating box is gone ;)

      Delete
    3. Congrats :-) I was also EXTREMELY annoyed by that thing, that's why I posted that picture :D

  11. I see your product parameters and this site(http://www.bicgate.com/hdc-galaxy-s4-smartphone-android-4-2-mt6589-5-inch-screen-13mp-camera-1gb-ram.html) has a lot of places is not the same

    4. yeah... the pan.baidu link doesn't work.
      i need to find the rom and rest of files for flashing.
      trying to flash only the recovery file keeps bringing up either a BROM ERROR 4032 or 8032 error

      Delete
    5. Have you tried to use a different Flashtool version? I had a phone before, when I tried to flash ONLY a recovery image, I had to do it without the battery and I had to press and hold Vol + (or - ???) thoughout the flashing process.

      Delete
  13. Thanks for helping out. Tried your method and now getting continuous 4032 error - enable DRAM failed.

  14. OK. For everyone out there who just got their HDC Galaxy Spark and having trouble with googlesync, bloatware, issues with googleapps and just basically unhappy with the shipped ROM from the September stock.... my solution after 48 hours of non sleep.
    1. Go to fastcardtech forum - Firmware/ Update topics and download the HDC S4 Spark ROM Meso 01.zip and CWM recovery file on your PC
    2. On the Spark - connect to PC and transfer the Meso01.zip into your SD card.
    3. Use SP Flash tool to upload the recovery.img into the phone
    4. Root the phone with MT6589 rooter.
    4. Download Mobileuncle MTK from googleplay.
    5. Restart in recovery via mobileuncle MTK and then install meso01.zip on SD
    6. When the phone starts it will go into the setup wizard and loop with error. Go into settings and do a factory reset.
    7. Reboot and it should work.


    If you brick your phone. Go to Needrom.com and obtain the standard spark ROM. SP flash tools will work and recover your phone to how it was shipped.

    Good luck all.

  15. Oh and if you lose your IMEI.
    Go into MobileUncle - Go to engineer mode>connectivity>cds information> radio information> phone1 and type
    AT + EGMR = 1,7,"your imei number which should be on the sticker on the back of the phone" (without spaces) and submit. Reboot and bob's your uncle.

  16. Hello. Someone can root this phone?, I'm from Argentina, and some guys in a spanish forum said that if you insert de code: *#364666# and show a menu, that mean that you phone is a Meso, else your phone is a HDC Legend. Is that true?

    I'm really interested how i can root the device. (Sorry for my english i wrote without a translator)

    1. Hi :-) I have a rooting link in the first post :-) I don't know what that code is, I've never seen it?!?

      Delete
    2. Ok! Really Thanks for your quicly answer! (By the way, your blog is very interesting!)
      Now I'll see your post, and later comment you if i can root the device.
      Respect to the code, i insert it in my phone and show me one special menu (where you can configure gps, imei, etc). They said that in the HDC Legend this action don't happend.

      Greetings and always ready for any questions

      One more time sorry for my english. (I try to not use the translator because that way the texts are quite confusing)(at least is what I think LOL)

      Delete
    3. I want to do one more question... Do you know one way to identifier my device (that is a Legend, Spark, Meso, etc)

      Delete
  17. Hi, Somebody can use de Led notificator, GPS, air view, smart stay, smart pause and the micro sd card? In my device these functions don't works.

    Thanks!
