You can go to Colonel Zap blog to search for the rom. I believe he has a rooted firmware for the HDC branded one. If yours is the Star or Tinji brand, just search for tinji i9300 in XDA and you can find the rooted firmware for it as well.

I just got a bigger version from fastcardtech.com and they call it the HDC Galaxy note II clone. This is a really new model just released this month in September.
I just completed a review on it so you can check it out on youtube.

I hope someone can make a rooted firmware for this as well. I have to settle for stock for the time being.

I asked on Colonel Zap's blog and he said he didnt have the root or custom roms for this particular phone but I looked through this thread and may safely try it. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460
Im not too bothered about custome roms, just wanna root and delete all chinese apps to free space and also be able to used SD card storage. thanks for the reply though

Hi
I've bought one s3 clone yesterday in Singapore. No brand.
It's a 6577 dual core with 1gb ram and 2gb rom.
The screen is 1280x720 PX what is quite nice.

I've rooted it with the spark tool and it worked.

But I can't access to my sdcard. It's not mounted.
Does any one know how to use it ?

Cheers

This is how I rooted my S3 i9300 mtk6577 android 4.1. U can try this process for any mtk6577 device but do this with caution and at your own risk. I haven't flashed the ROM bcoz it's too risky with these Chinese clones.

*Install the MTK6577 usb drivers http://www.4shared.com/rar/0MvyztbR/...oid_ZTE_.html? cau2=403tNull

*Download the rooting .rar file (v2) from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460

*please note that no apps must be open or running during the process.

*Connect the phone- should have the USB-Debug option enabled in settings.

*click RunMe.bat file and selectthe "Other" (option 4)

*click Restore option on ya mobile to backup ya data and then wait for the magic.

*Mobile should reboot twice and the command prompt on ya PC shows this msg: "Successful, going to reboot your device!"

*After completion, command prompt should state if phone has been rooted and superuser n terminal emulator apps automatically installed on ya mobile*

*After rooting my phone, I didnt see the superuser.apk file and just installed the superuser app from play store. U can also use any root checker apps to confirm that ya phone is rooted.

*To delete Chinese apps and anything u don't want, I used "Root App Delete" from play store. This app shows which system files u should not delete so PS do this with caution.

VIOLA!

Not an answer as such but i am using the same phone in the UK, Do you have any ideas as to how to stop it roaming when you make a call, I am using a UK Giffgaff and UK Orange sim but when i topped up yesterday it cained my credit like no tomorrow.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Dont worry about the answer. I manage to root my phone and delete all Chinese apps.
Regarding ya issue, have u tried settings > sim management > roaming and change ya options accordingly. Hope that works.
