вHello everyone, those who are sitting on 4pda probably recognize me, I Artemus0072281337, i made a port CWM Recovery for Qin1S (only S), true this cwm very buggy, and the functionality has not been tested, since the joystick control does not work, and all that can be done is to reboot it, but it seems to be enabled in the config Sideload, but I did not check it since I do not have this device, you do everything at your own peril and risk

You have to install adb drivers for your device. Go to Device manager there you will see something like fastboot gadget and an exclamation mark. You have to Update its driver and select manually Android Phone -> Android Bootloader interface. This should fix the issue and allow you to flash the image.

This process was described in the original post in chinese. You can use google translator if you get stuck somewhere. https://www.myworldbooks.cn/archives/683

If someone is looking for a decent navigator/ offline maps here maps 1.1 and 2.0.12823 seems to be working really good (You should activate mouse control for this app Settings-> Mouse control-> tick here maps). Today I will try to get gps signal and update. It looks it works good.

There are some other useful apps working really good for this device, like opera mini, square home launcher and vysor - this last one is specially useful if you want to view and control the screen of your device from your pc as you would do with a touch screen.

Some screenshots:

Download spd factory to it's the flash tool by spreadtrum. Install spd flashing drivers download from 4pda the version 1.4.6 mod. Load the .pac on the tool turn off phone press talk button and connect to computer then release the talk button it should start the flashing process. Once flashed you'll be able to install any app.

Xiaomi QIN 1S Hacking Mega-Thread!

hello, I would like to root my phone, everything is fine until the installation of the open version (key 8) instead of having a green V, I have a red cross in the background of the screen. a license problem?​

I decided to go ahead and buy a Xiaomi QIN 1s feature phone. Unlike other feature phones, it runs a version of Android. Since there doesn't seem to be any threads here on XDA, I thought I'd start one.

SPECS

I finally found a guide/tool over on 4pda that will let you install apks. I have translated the tool to English and have it attached. The original post of the tool is here

If you don't want to download the tool (which also helps with ADB) here are the steps to obtain root:

-- Install the driver on your PC
-- Dial: *#*#83781#*#* To Open the Engineering Menu
-- Find the section "Debug & Log" and enable "Allow Debug"
-- Open the Settings app
-- Find "about phone"
-- Click "Build number" multiple times until you see "You are now a Developer!"
-- Go to "Developer options" and then turn on USB Debugging
-- Connect your phone to your computer (MTP)
-- Using ADB, push the apk to the device
-- ???
-- Profit

You can use this method to install any applications, not just root the phone. Remember, however, we only have 256mb of RAM and a total of 512mb of storage. Definitely not for gaming and you will definitely want an SD Card. I can confirm QQ and WeChat work fine when installed.

Let's get this rooted!


Big shoutout to Frolkin who helped me get the original tool and gaguga for making the tool!

    Qinpad with Greek characters

    Just in case anyone needs it, I have used the source code from github to build an apk based on the 0.3 version for the application that supports Greek characters / Greek layout as well. Here is the file in the attachment. Also as a disclaimer, I do not consider myself a developer. I have no idea how to add this code back to github. Please contact me if you think you want the code to upload it or use it otherwise.

    Cheers!

    Hello
    Try this keyboard
    https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=912205&view=findpost&p=83537682
    How to enable: from the main menu we launch and immediately get to the input method settings dialog. Remove the check mark from the stock and put it on the QinPad.
    Switch layout - grid, register - asterisk. There is no separate layout for digital input. Add. characters enter by enumerating zero and one.
