Default Installing Android on fake iPhone 4

First time poster here, but with a question that might benefit quite a few people.

I recently bought a fake iPhone 4 in China, and I'm trying to see if I can get Android installed on it. I don't know too much about hacking phones, so I'd appreciate it if someone with more experience could point me in the right direction to get started.

I know my phone has a MT6235 processor commonly found in many Chinese phones (it has an ARM architecture). I'm not sure what kind of OS it is currently running, but it is really crappy and is neither iOS nor Android. The phone is a dual SIM card phone.

What typically is the procedure for flushing out the existing OS and installing Android?

Welcome to the Android Forums, that's a really good question. I bet if we can figure out what model your phone is we may be able to see if it's hackable/how easy it would be to put Android on it. The thing that really matters is a dev would need to own the same phone, and depending on what model you have it may not have been tried yet.

I dont think there is a typical procedure, it varies from phone to phone. Android doesnt come ready to run with a variety of drivers for various hardware, like, say, windows or linux. It has to be customised for the specific hardware youre running it on, which requires the extensive efforts of Clever People.

First step is, i would say, try to find some kind of forum specific to your phone and see if anyone is working on porting android to it. Youre going to need a name, model number, manufacturer or something though.

Edit: erm, in other words, what B2L said...

cool, thanks for the tips. I'll see what info I can dig up about my phone. It's a pretty generic fake iPhone, no manual or anything of that sort, and the settings page is pretty jacked up. I'll post back here once I find out more.

Welcome to AF Sysanalyst!
Sorry I looked and couldn't find anything to try to help you install Android on that device
You could possible check over here iSource: #1 Source for iPad, iPhone, iPod, Mac and Apple TV and perhaps gain some insight on how to make the phone better for your needs.

I don't know if android would even operate on 256MB of ram??


There are some videos on YouTube I have seen explaining that this Is not possible. Sorry...

I'll see if I can go find it.

Hi all,

I am very new to this.
I know my way around a computer/mobiles only a small amount, but enough to follow instructions or receive guidence

I recently purchased a fake chinese iphone 4S whilst in Chile. No instructions type of thing. The box says YI HAO on the front. I have googled this but come up with nothing at all.

Pardon my ignorance for the information I am about to provide. I know the phone is running a verision of Android and it looks similar to IOS on my iphone 3gs but obviously it is not. Also even though I have changed the language to English it alot of the screens/settings are still in Chinese.

Also although there is no sim card in the phone it keeps receiving text messages, from random numbers and all of the text within the message is in Chinese, the phone is connect via wifi so this must be why ( but it is really annoying)

in the about phone screen it says ( only included releveant info below )

Android Version @2131167117
Model Number Android 2.3.6
Device Serial number 7GXA14DP0N
Wi-FI MAC address ****************
IMEI information ****************
ICCID **** **** **** **** ****
Modem Firmware 05.15.68

* = there are numbers but dont think they are relevant to my problem

First and foremost, can I replace the current operating system with an full English one ?

also does anyone know how I go about actually finding out what phone I have, the processor etc? As I got a feeling that this might come in handy to know when trying to change anything on the phone.

Again sorry for my ignorance and I hope someone can assist me. It would be really appriciated.

Thanks

Sorry,

I dont know if I should mention that the phone already has Play Store installed ? And as I mentioned is skinned up to look like IOS so I am guessing also has what you would typically find on this type of device. But to be completely honest I have no Idea.

Also in the about phone screen, it says Total Space 32G, however the SD card is only an 8GB card, so I think this is untrue, which makes me think that other information in the about phone screen could also be untrue.

I am starting to think my best option would be to wipe the phone and begin from scratch, but to be honest I no idea where to begin with this.... please help, all suggestions welcome

MoDaCo started a thread about covering Chinese phones. So far it's just suggestions:

Thank you again for trying to steer me in the right direction.

I have been doing some reading online, I do not claim to know alot.

But it seems if I "root" my phone and re-install the English version of android I will get my desired effect ?

Please can someone maybe explain what this means and where I can find instructions on how to do it correctly. I have searched but am a little confused. I am savvy enough to be able to follow instructions and gain an understanding. ( I think haha )

Thank you

You have to know exactly which phone you have to root and put a ROM on it.

Thank you

If I open the phone up, do you think this will give me an indication? As I can not seem to find any other method of telling which phone I have. I didnt want to open up the phone without a reason. But to be fair the bac kcase is lightly glued on so not that difficult.

Ok, so taking off the back case has not helped me at all. There is only another plastic cover, do not want to take that off as it could potentially break something I do not want to break.

surely there must be a way to find out what phone I have? All suggestions deeply appriciated.

i think an older varient of android could run on 256 like 2.1 or something, i think my friends samsung transform only had 256.

I have downloaded an app called Android System Info and it has given me some more information.

What do I need to do from here? I have no idea what is the best way forward? I would like to have an english version of Android on the phone and then from there if an Iphone interface is practical ok, not too bothered but it would be nice.

I have a very small idea of what rooting and putting a ROM onto it means. But by no means pretend I know how to do it or what it actually does.

I'm not tottally stupid though (haha) able to follow instruction etc.

Search for mt6573. There are lots of results so you will have to do some digging.

Thank you. I will get started.

You have been really helpful.

Could I ask where I can find information on what rooting is and also what putting "a ROM on it" means.

I can guess at it, but think better to actually know.

I would feel alot more comfortable when carrying out the operations if I knew what effects my actions had type of thing.

Sorry also, is mtk 6573 the same as mt 6573 ?

You have to make sure the ROM is for your phone.

Given that it's a knock-off iPhone that isn't using Android in the first place, the chances of putting Android on it are pretty close to zero. Yeh, the hardware usually is quite poor with these things.

It applies for very much any knock-off iPhone.

I also have the samae problem like this
Model : A1332
EMC: 380A
FCCID:BCG-E280A

Or better still don't buy any fake china iphone or whatever.
These phones just make you sick and wondered why you ever bought one like i did. Well we learn from our mistake
and its a costly one. So forget about fake china phone.
They only give you headache.

when buying a china phone you really have to read or you get screwed... I bought a Star W007 and I love it... A friend wants to buy it and even tho I'm not using it anymore I still wanna keep it... It has ICS 4.0.4 on it with a 1ghz dual core, 512 mb of ram 2 gb of internal storage and was very easy to root using restore... moral of the story is make sure the wcdma or hspa has 850/1900 for north America and buy from a buyer with a excellent reputation...
