So I bought a fantastic new phone when my windows one had a hard fall... for 40!! Epade S90 Branded 'Jcomm NEO' (A what??) Dual sim, dual core, fm radio etc.

Still cant get over the value, but im now wondering if its flashable/moddable?

Its completely unlocked, no network, even the serial is 123456789ABCDE

Has some sort of semi stock rom on there, no branding

How would I know if it is?

Runs really nice but im always tinkering

current details:
BASEBAND version MAUI.11AMD.W12.22.SP.V5.P3,2012/09/10

Kernel:
3.0.13

I'm currently useing the same mobile phone, it's flashable, you can bulid your own CWM recovery using MTK Droid tools. There is even a TWRP recovery v2.4.1.0. at this forum. CWM gave me some backup problems, TWRP seems to be stable.
There are some custom ROMs on some chinese forumse, use Google.
Lewa seems to be pretty good.
I have terrible battery life on my N002, how's yours?

Thanks for that - what model are you listing it by - I try to search google etc. using the above info but i just get Chinese sales websites. im guessing as mines a Jcomm, its rebranded accordingly but the underlying phone is a neo, epade s90

The battery is fine on mine, much better than the Windows phone I smashed by accident and hence this replacement. I have an 1850mah but ive seen 2200+ on ebay, maybe grab one of those?

Impressed for 40! Others are buying them now they've seen mine

It should be NEO model N002.
Are you using one or two SIM cards?
Can you please provide a link for that 2200+ battery, I would appreciate it.

Are you just lobbing the rom onto your sdcard and flashing with CQM then?
I can see I can get into recovery mode ok.
its all rooted and unlocked so not much else I need to do I don't think, just make sure I have a backup (it takes ages)

I've also just brought a Neo N002 for 40.
The "Epade S90" referes to a discontinued model but the battery fits the Neo.
Or something like that :-p
Ive now got half a dozen different n002 Roms on my SD...
Just Google "neo n002 Roms"

You will get a lot of Chinese sale sites selling the phone in the Google results but there are at least a dozen good sites (in Chinese) that have various Roms for this great phone.
Best one I've tried and am currently using is a BBk OS.
Looks a bit like cyanogenmod.
There is a good Sony ROM, and a Samsung/touchwiz rom that I found very laggy.
Just be aware that some Roms take ages to download from these sites and some are unflashable in cwm due to code 7 errors.
Couple of points-The makers advertisments claim the Neo has a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and 1gb ram.
It actually has a 1.0 GHz dual core processor and 442 mb (335 usable) ram.
Why the makers need to fib is beyond me.
One the back cover of my Neo, it says "with neo team sense"
This is obviously a reference to some people claiming the Neo to be a "clone" of an HTC ONE X.
The Neo looks nothing like an HTC one.

I'm more inclined to think the Neo is more like a Moto G IMHO.

Anyway, Good luck with the ROM hunting
