Hello, sorry to bother you with somewhat unrelated answer, but can you send me a backup of your current firmware? I've bought the same phone from chinese retailer, and it's firmware is modified for china - chinese appmarket is the worst And it doesn't even support google market - it crashes upon launch.
So, could you please send me a copy of your phone's firmware?

I have a Lenovo A269i bought from here (now sold out):
lelong.com.my/lenovo-ideaphone-a269i-dual-sim-1ghz-processor-3-5-inch-satugadgetdotcom-142728589-2014-04-Sale-P.htm

Take a look. I believe it's already rooted and can also use the Play Store but I'm not sure since I only use it as a MiFi hotspot device. If it's the same phone as yours then I can help create a backup rom and post it here, provided you list down all the steps I need to do to create one using only free tools. Safely. I'm not risking my MiFi device.
