I just received this little beast (firmware B003) and I have some questions:

-Using the huawei launcher i'm not able to rotate the screen to landscape, I have the automatic function activated but it only works when i'm using apps or the settings from the pad.

-The "Auto-align" and "Shake" functions are also not working, they are both selected but nothing happens when I uninstall an app (there is still am empty space) or when I shake the pad.

-According to what I read on the forums I need to unlock the bootloader in order to be able to root it, is there a way to "relock the bootloader"? I bought mine on amazon and I have a full european warranty, I would like to keep it if possible.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Best regards

Yes, you can relock the bootloader, but system info keeps displaying the wrong hardware specs even after flashing the only available stock ROM download (russian but can be switched to german and other languages).

Long story short : it's absolute crap, better send it back and buy something else.
