I just got a new china phone (MTK 6577, Android 4, model: V05) and I have some questions about basic android configuration. The layout is IOS6.0 (they seem to call it Android IOS6.0)<. However, the shell is english but some of the basic functions are in chinese. For example the alarm and clock settings are in chinese. Also all internet connection based basic apps are pointed to chinese addresses. The product page says it is based on Android 4.0.9.
First of all I would love to have a more classic Android shell and all english.
I would like to remove all "chinese apple ripoff apps" (like a fake appstore and iTunes).
Change the default web page.
Install Google Play (I got it running but it does not like my phone).
Also, the phone presents it self as an iPhone5 running IOS6 and I guess it makes internet a bit more safe but also a bit boring.
I am trying to get root access and the few standard methods I have tried is not working (scripts, apps, etc).
Anyone with experience on these phones? Any tips where to start looking or maybe solutions? Also I cant find any english forum / forum sections dedicatet to chinese phones with Android. I hope I can get this working, the phone is awesome and I just love the fact that itīs not an iPhone
