Default [Q] Problems with Galaxy 5s 900S (CLONE)

Hi. I have a Samsung Galaxy 5s SM-900S. I discovered after buying it that it is a clone. Oh well!

I rooted it using Root Genius (Chinese) from Shuame download.

It was working great. Then I deleted some bloatware apps, and disabled others.

After that, all hell broke loose. I was stuck in a flash screen boot loop.

A techie friend put the phone in download mode, and it was able to open up, but no home page.

Then he downloaded Nova launcher, and I got my home page back.

But it was a slightly different home page.

The phone originally said 900T (under- about device), but I know it is G900S (from 3 apps that display the phone specs).

Now it says G900.

The problems now are:

1. my phone dialer disappeared. I downloaded another, but it wont ring when a call comes in
2. Every few minutes when doing anything, I get a message- Unfortunately, the process android process.acore has stopped.

I then must press the ok button to continue.

Can anyone help me? Do I need to flash a new ROM?

I don't wantto reset to factory settings if I can avoid it.

I am a newbie. But I learn fast.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I'm just going to let you know right now... You're not going to get support in an official device thread for a clone.

I`m sorry you got scammed mate, try to get your money back or file a police report for fraude if the device was advertised as a genuine Galaxy S5.
There is no support for this (also not by the manufacturer) device and even finding a working rom wil be very difficult.
Good luck and hope you learn from this, if it sounds to be too good to be true, it usualy is
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

Sad to say, but he's pretty much out of luck. Scammers know they're selling a phone that's not genuine, so chances of getting money back are slim to none. Police also don't care. If you bought it with cash just take this as a life lesson, because there's pretty much nothing else you can do.
