Hi,

I have just bought a chinese Note II clone.
Code:
www dot cellphonemic dot com/mtk6577-android-phones/s7100-mtk6577
The phone seems to be unable to handle SIM properly. On every start I get the error message:
Quote:

com.android.phone stopped

SIM Toolkit is also unable to start. When I start or receive a call, the display goes blank or just flashes up for a moment. (This problem is resolved already, see here)
I was told it is most likely a firmware error. On searching, I didn't find this model or similar in the forum. I also tried several rooting methods described here without success.
Here are some details I could get from the phone:
Code:

I asked the chinese merchant I bought the phone from but he seems quite uncertain, although he promised to send a new ROM.
Can anybody help? Thanks in advance

Unfortunately is often quite difficult to get support for those Chinese clone devices. I hope you'll find someone that can help you but I think your best bet is to ask the seller for a replacement.

At least I could root. Then I could try some custom ROM at my own risk.

Don't install ROMs from Galaxy Note II threads beacuse chinese versions of phones isn't the same that samsung's devices! You may brick the phone

It was never in my mind. This is why I posted here. But the question is still academic, since firmware update requires rooting (as far as I know) and I am unable even to root.

Proximity sensor
The problem of blank/flashing screen during calls has been resolved. The proximity sensor needed a proper calibration. I did the calibration many times so far, but not the correct way. I have just figured out how it should be done effectively.

It is actually a simple process. Locate your proximity sensor, it is a small LED-like thing next to the speaker, on either side. Look for calibration of proximity sensor, you can find it usually amongst the display options. Tap on it, target-like concentric circles appear and the application asks you to place some obstacles over the sensors. The easiest way is to hold your palm above the sensor approx. 5 cm (2 inches) apart. Touch the Start button, and then try to complete the process with your hand motionless. The whole process takes a few seconds. If you did everything right, during a call, holding the phone to your ear the screen goes blank, and the phone application re-appears when moving the phone away.

Hi,

thanks for the response. How is your ROM working? Is it fully functioning, rooted or not etc.
How should it be installed? From SD card or by flashing application?
Send it anyway, having itself doesn't do any matter.

Thanks in advance
