Hi to all!

I recently bought this phone, I have to admit to being fully satisfied of the features except for one ... the GPS function.
I have read dozens of guides to adjust the GPS W8+ but not for my model. If I knew how to do the root I could at least try to use the same method.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to do it on this phone?

So I got mine W8 beyond two days ago.
So far so good, but:
1. GPS problem. I am geocacher (more at: geocaching.com) and I need accurate GPS. When I stood still in the open for few minutes, I could see GPS jumping around for 400-900 meters for no reason. AGPS and EPO activated. We will see how it goes

2. I would love to get polish language settings, since there are some apps which fetch the content depending on Your language setting (I know that this is poor design, but this is how they works), so that would be nice. Not an issue anymore. I installed MoreLocale2 and pm'ed it which is more than enough at the moment.

3. I do not see option for sorting the apps in the main apps menu (it was working on my old Lenovo A750) - am I missing something?First 9 icons are fixed and alphabelical, the rest is just alphabetical. I can live with that.

4. I have my contacts stored with country prefix which is not used by my operator. I do not see my contacts data when they are calling me.
The SMSes are provided by operator with country prefix, so the problem is with calls only. I tried to follow this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2268120 but I am unable to decompile framework.jar - no classes.dex inside. I am not able to deodex framework.odex either, so I am stuck for the moment.
GravityMod2 3.0 ROM fixed that problem.


The link provided with the tools and howto contains W8_beyond.JB2.FHD.EN.COM.8P128_MT6589TV1.0.1_20130618-cwm6033.img,
when I go to phone info at my phone I can see W8_beyond.JB2.FHD.EN.COM8P128_MT6589TV1.0.2_20130626.
Seems like I have newer firmware. If anyone can tell me how to extract this, I would be more than happy to share.

GravityMod2 3.0 installed - not an issue anymore

For my good old Lenovo I was able to modify the ROM as soon as I got my hands on any ROM in zip format. I guess I could also try to compile something (I am a programmer), but since I am extremely low on time I would need MT6589T kernel patch (is it the same like mt6589) and some basic manual.

Anyone interested?

Thanks, but I got A-GPS and EPO already enabled and EPO downloaded.
I till try to go to the engineering menu and locking via YGPS.

As I understood from google translator, I should just wait for lock and then close everything. Since then everything should be running smoothly. Am I right?

What about my other questions? Lack of polish is driving my crazy. My news feeds are all US which is driving me crazy ...

Unhappy w8 beyond dead
Guys ..... HELP!!!!

with my habit of fiddling I think I brick the cell.
I tried the guide for root and recovery for the beyond, but now I can not turn on anymore, not even in recovery mode, the LED does not light up even if I put it on charge.

Can anyone give me some advice on where I can start to revive the terminal?

Thanks in advance.

I am not sure if it helps (I am quite sure it does not acctually), but which version was running on your phone prior to root attempt? Which part has failed? writting the CWM image or rooting?

Try to connect the phone to the PC via usb and then turning it on. If PC reacts (ADB device as far as I rememeber will be recognized) then there might be chance for You.
