================================================== ================================================== =============
I just open this thread for this mobile.
i have just received it and I would like to share the fact that the ROOT procedure as recommended by ZOPOMOBILE site is perfectly working.
After Root it is necessary to update Superuser from the market and the SU BIN as well.

Everything is smooth and easy.

Regards

Question
Can you please give some feedback on the phone itself. Specially the battery which looks too small (1250 mAh).

I can tell you that after a couple of weeks of use, the battery is lasting one full day. You need to perform 3-4 full cycles charge and discherge to get full capacity but now is more than acceptable.
I'm using it for business and I do not loose any call.
The UMTS 3G data is perfectly working as well as all the others features it promises.
Fully recommended froma myself... but I'm not an expert.

So I got a ZP200 and updated the firmware to the latest 20120508 one. Now pressing search button in home screen doesn't bring up Google Search any more. It vibrates a bit but nothing else. Long press still brings up Voice Search, though.

The new firmware enables the full 1GB of RAM. It's pretty nice to be able to switch between many apps.

It's from Zopo's site: http://www.zopomobile.com/xiazai.php

No, it's not ICS. Still 2.3.6.

So I figured out why the search button stopped working after the update. The new firmware is missing GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk in /system/app.

I installed Google Search from Play Store. Then made a copy of com.google...googlequicksearchbox-1.apk (can't remember the full name) in /data/app. Uninstalled Google Search in Play Store. Moved the copy to /system/app. Renamed it to GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk. Changed permissions to rw-r--r--. And I now have a functioning search button!

Of course you need to root it first. All the file operations (copy, move, etc...) were done with AntTek Explorer (File Manager) but I think any root file manager will do.

Here's a tutorial on flashing ROM on MT6575 phones:
http://bm-smartphone-reviews.blogspo...-tutorial.html

The flash tool and steps are the same on all MT6575 phones. But make sure you load the correct update of your phone model. Here's the one I use (click at the green download button):
