  3. Happy New Year Colonel!

    I have this phone, but one thing that confuses me is with Facebook pm or Messenger App. When a message is typed it translates it to Chinese automatically for posting. I have checked the settings and the international settings is marked as English. Something similar happens with SIRI in that shows a comment in Chinese under the word. Do you have this with your phone? Can you provide any guidance?

    Thanks.

    1. Hi :-) I haven't tested Facebook. Is that a system app?`If so, maybe you should root the phone:

      And then find the facebook app in the system/app folder and rename or delete it. Then install facebook from the play store.

    1. Hi :-) I don't quit understand? The play store was on my phone right out of the box, I didn't do anything to have it on the phone :-)

  5. Have you played around with the phone much? I would like to run a launcher other than the IOS7 skin, and I've found that widgets are not working...? Sigh. Also, I have problems changing the wallpaper and keyboard. It seems to keep reverting back to the original (one with stars in the background) when I turn off the phone and turn it back on.

    1. Ah, discovered problem was I needed to keep those apps on internal storage. When I go to Settings -> iTunes -> Manage apps, it shows I have only approx 175MB of internal storage for apps. Since many apps can be placed on SD card, this might not be a problem for many, but since I want to load a different launcher (also needs to be in internal storage or will revert back to iPhone on boot up), I have rather limited space for apps. I would be curious if yours also refers to internal storage and how much. Also, since you loaded the NEXT launcher, did you have a similar experience that without putting it solely on internal storage, the phone boots up to the iphone home launcher?

  6. Hi colonel
    thanks for code to switch logo boot
    another one is *#33#* to enter engineer mode
    i found probably an update for this phone here: http://www.needrom.com/mobile/thunderbird-i5s-gold/
    but I'm not brave enough to try it
    could you tell me if you think this may be compatible?
    how can I backup the rom on this phone?
    thank you very much

    1. *#33#* takes you into engineer mode? On my phone, it takes me to the choice of Apple vs Android logo (but I don't have a Thunderbird). As you may have heard, loading the wrong ROM on your MT6572 may permanently brick your phone. (Well, pretty much permanently unless it's possible to activate META mode on your phone...)

  7. Yes *#33#* take me into engineer mode the code for choice logo and reset phone is *#15693#* for the i5c is *#0158# this is the procedure for rom update:

    1) connect and install drivers
    2) open sp flash tool
    3) scatter loading / mtk6572 scatter
    4) click on the reset button behind the device (in the middle of the camera and flash)
    5) click format / auto format flash – format whole flash except bootloader
    6) click OK
    7) Disconnect the USB cable
    8) press download (F9) Download
    9) connect the USB cable
    10) wait flash Rom
    11) turn on while holding down the volume – button, and enter the factory mode
    12) go down with volume – and select restore factory system confirm with up the volume + button
    13) the game is done

  10. How to Setup Internet on iphone 5S CLONE

    ReplyDelete
  11. I need help with this phone.

    I received it yesterday. The phone running with the iOS 7 theme version 7.0.4. I have installed some applications from Google Play, like WinAmp, WhatsApp and others but I have a problem, it can´t create an launch icon of the app on the desktop and I can´t running the app normally. To run the app (whatever app) I had to try two things, well, the first thing that I had tried was throught Google Play, touch to "my apps" and then I can launch the app. The second thing I´d tried, throught "Settings > iTunes Store and App Store > Application Manager" and select the app to run

    What can I do to create the launch icon of the apps?

    I verified in Google Play´s adjust the "automatically add widgets" was marked

    And if I want to eliminate some launch icon, I can´t

    1. Hi :-) I really don't know and I don't have this phone anymore, so I can't check for you, SORRY :-( If I were you, I'd install a different launcher, maybe that will solve the problem? There should be other iPhone-look-.alike launchers available.

  12. Thanks a lot!!

    Now the launcher icon appears on desktop, How did I do? Simple, when I want to install a new app, I select it from Play Store, and when the phone is set to start downloading the app, I pressing three times centre button, on this way, appears the desktop and when the app it is ready, appears the launch icon

    1. Hi :-) I'm sorry but I don't have this phone anymore but the camera was REALLY bad!!! The V3 camera is MUCH MUCH better.

      Delete
    2. oh Thank you so much for your reply! So if you say V3 is better i'll take in consideration. Thanks again! By the way, do you know if there's any difference, about camera, between Thunderbird i5S and Thunderbird i5S EX? Or they both use the same camera and the differences are ROM and CPU ?

      Delete
    3. Thunderbird I5s EX camera is better than the Thunderbird I5s, but the camera from the inew V3 is much better than both thunderbird camera"s. Bye coincident my family has all the 3 Phones and a Doogee 800 on his way :)
