Yeah, the V970 (aka Grand X) has Tegra 2 chipset and less RAM (512MB.), the rest looks to be identical with the Grand X IN. Some people complain about the creaking back cover, but I havent noticed any problems with the construction. The edges are comfortably rounded, only the MicroUSB hole looks "low-cost" ZTE also promised Jelly Bean update which will fix the short touch buttons backlight. Intel was testing the JB update a few months ago, so it should be released in Q1 2013.

The application compatibility is ... almost the same as with an ARM chipset. Every app I've tryed is working fine, smooth and without lags, except Trial Xtreme 2 game which lagging like hell, video and audio too. Just a few minutes before I noticed some problems with Wifi internet, the connection looks stable, its not disconnecting, but the internet is working only for a few second in periods for example it works 3 sec. in 30sec. period. Strange. My wifi router signal is stable and strong, other devices are working fine. Yesterday and today I was on the same wifi too and without a single problem. Strange. Also once when I was copying a huge file from PC to phone via USB with MTP, the phone simply rebooted. I hope these bugs will be fixed in forthcoming FW update.

The V970 uses MTK6577 and 1gb ram. There is also Grand X Mimoza with the characteristics you wrote.
Overall, we have 3 phones that look exactly the same from the outside ( besides the sticker and the front camera on the IN), but totally different inside...
Anyway, this is Grand X IN topic, so i'll be shutting up now

WARNING(about custom ROMs):

As of now (23th December), at least in Polish version of Grand X In(4gb internal memory, no fmradio), there is no possibility to revert rom back to original one. If any of XDA users has any idea how to fix this problemm, please share. Also if you have noticed similair behaviour on other devices and there was a solution for it, please post it!

As far the following steps have been made:
  • installing Romanian/Norwegian/Hungarian versions of rom
  • restoring original recovery
  • changing build.prop to original one
  • editing build.prop and changing persist.service.adb.enable=1 to persist.service.adb.enable=0

It seems like device is not being correctly recognised while trying to switch back to original ROM(T-mobile PL version).

What I saw on some Hungarian forums, there is no problem with returning the original ROM. They also tryed combinating the Xolo X900s kernel and ROM with the GXINs kernel and ROM. X900s ROM was running good on stock kernel even if the resolution was different, also the BT/Wifi wasnt working.

Hi guys,

I've been looking for an unlock method for this phone lately and had no success. Didn't find any free or pay services which work proven. Does one of the custom roms unlock also or any ideas?

Thanks!
