Newbie help for Lenovo A690
Hi, just bought a Lenovo A690 and its a cracking phone apart from the small amount of memory.
It came with the following build Lenovo A690_SO13_121025. I don't think it is rooted.
The main problem is that I cannot get a google account to work. Gmail / play etc does not work.Under accounts it is not possible to add a google account only exchange. I did manage to get the default email app to work with gmail.
I use 1 Mobile Market which works ok, it just would be nice to use the native google stuff.
Also, I installed the Android SDK and modified the device so that all apps should be installed to the SD card. Most do but some like Nav4free will not install to the SD card and try install to the virtually non existent internal memory ! Can you modify an APK so it always installs to SD card ?
I have read that Etotalk do custom ROMS but you cant buy or download them. Anyone know where I can get any support for this device ?
thanks in advance
