Hello everyone,
I could use your help please.
As I don't have the budget for a original s4 smartphone a friend of mine brought a s4 clone from Thailand, but guess it must be chinese clone. Pitty enough I don't know the brand, it has samsung cocks, samsung battery, etc

With mtktools I found this info :

Hardware : MT6575
Model : magcomm89_ics2
Build number : ALPS.GB2.MP.V1.18
Build date UTC : 20130513-080023
Android v : 2.3.6
Baseband v: MAUI.11AMD.W11.50.SP.V12.P4, 2012/07/27 10:29
Kernel v : 2.6.35.7 ([email protected]) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #1 Mon May 13 15:59:26 CST 2013

In "about phone" the following is mentioned
model: GT-I9500
android : 4.2.2
smalbandversion : I9500XXUAMDE
Kernel : 3.4.5-I9500ZSKJ6-CL679970
mon may 13.15:59:26CST 2013
build : gingerbread-zskj6
version adapted model : shine.20130513.v002

I would like to put other rom on it (with dutch) but impossible to root phone and I don't know what rom would work as I don't know the brand.
I can't get in recovery mode neather, tried different button combinations (volume down/home button) but nothing works :(
Also often network signal get lost with message "limited access changed"
Could you help me please with your knowledge? Myself don't have any knowledge

Thank you very much for your advice and feedback
Have a nice day, greetings from belgium

update : meanwhile I found how to get in recovery mode : combination volume + and volume and power button
Can someone guide me for a working rom please?

I can help, you will need to pull the stock recovery from your device then use some XDA user made tools to port your stock recovery into a custom recovery that will allow you to simply flash a root.zip to gain root access then use SP flash tool to upload it back to device. OR if nothing else try this, it has worked on a bunch of different phones.

I cannot access my SDCARD though it was inserted.
**I did that swapping the INT to EXT CARD thing. And my biggest mistake was I didnt made the back up file of the original file before i changed it. :(

Open your smartphone , and check the screen connector ( the one on the right side of the back camera) , maybe he is not correctly attached.

Here's my MT6575_Android_scatter.txt

Here's my full backup

To Runmo; in this rom it says Nederlands in Language settings.

So looking for a rom with Danish language, and it would be great if it is a newer version than 2.3.6 Gingerbread also.

About phone in Settings has spoofed info and states:

Model nr.: GT-I9500
Android ver.: 4.2.2 (It's clearly not)
Baseband: I9500XXUAMDE
Kernel ver.:3.4.5-I9500ZSKJ6-CL679970 Wed Jun 19 14:39:40 CST 2013
Build Nr.: GINGERBREAD.ZSKJ6
