Got a problem

Hey, I encountered a problem in my gionee m2... Whenever I try to add widget on a 3rd party launcher such as go launcher or Nova launcher, the settings crashes...Plz help me solve this problem!!!

Exactly, you'll not be able to add Widgets because of Amigo UI. Solution is if your phone is rooted, install busybox and an application named "system app mover" or any application which can do that work. Once this is done, you can install Nova launcher and then open system app mover, granting root permission. Push Nova launcher into system and reboot. Now, Nova launcher will be into your system and you can add any Widgets onto you home screen..:);)

Update:

I was checking out many launchers to see if the widget problem existed in all the Launchers..... But as I saw, the settings didn't crash in Launchers Like nemus launcher or MIUI home.

Hi! Is there anyone who can port "Color OS" for our Gionee M2? System which comes inbuilt with "Oppo" phones.

Great work of putting information in one place

great work bro.
The idea of bringing all customization info for Gionee m2 in one place is highly appreciable.

By the way its a great phone, I will just charge it every 3 days (with 3G on for 24/7 & WIFI for 2 hours. I do not play music that frequently. But I browse a lot. With 4 Gmail accounts + 7 LIVE accounts + 2 Exchange accounts + Weather widgets)

Just thinking about my old WP7 phone (HTC HD7) which I had to charge every day (mostly twice) & holding this phone now.....its heaven.

I was searching for days to find information for rooting, flashing.....finally came here.
1. I have rooted using framaroot (third option in exploit list worked for me)
2. Before that rooted it using VRoot tool from XIAOMI site
3. Installed Mobile uncle tools from Play store
4. Downloaded and kept the recovery.img in SD card (make sure you keep it in the root directory - meaning not in sub folders of SD card)
5. Installed the recovery using MTK Mobile uncle tools
6. Then installed ROM manager
7. Went into recovery mode
8. The Touch based recovery was good (compared to old button based where I had problems in my old device where the volume buttons were not working)
9. Remember that the touch recovery there will be no back button. (you have to swipe LEFt & RIGHT for drilling)
10. Downloaded & kept the pure AOSP rom in my SD card
11. Took a complete BACKUP of current ROM (prebuilt AMIGO UI based rom that comes with Gionee M2)
12. Copied the backup to my computer (safe side)
13. Went to ROM manager & installed the custom rom (that i downloaded in step 10). Using ROM manager is easier because you do not have to remember stuff like wipe/reset/dalvik......& what order to perform them

14. Finally had a fresh new OS.
15. Installed themer & my phone now rocks.


DETAILS:
Stock AMIGO UI: When I bought it: Free RAM: 430
Stock AMIGO UI: After installing apps: Free RAM : 140

Custom AOSP: After installing apps: Free RAM : 500+ :)

Yes, Shivam made this nice rom and we're really thankful to him but I think there's a minor bug in this rom with it's tethering. Check this out if you have not got this problem? Try connecting your phone's Wi-Fi 4-5 times and then start Wi-Fi tethering if it gets active? And if it's not then you won't be able to open your phone's Wi-Fi bro..
