    In that thread that Mike referenced it will say that your device, being unpopular, will not have much Developer support so finding a ROM would be very difficult.

    I think that what people are saying is that very few people will have one (which is where "unpopular" comes in) and hence there will be little or no developer support. Also you should expect zero support from the manufacturer.

    So if it works that's fine, but it's not likely there will be any ROMs for it, and if there are problems the manufacturer won't want to know and your network will probably blame the handset. People in the forum will give what help they can, but as few if any will have one this will be limited to generic advice.

    The problem is not one of popoularity, but the lack of knowledge of the thing's insides. Not all phones use the same partition-layout. If there is no existing documentation on how it is set up, then it is almost impossible to design custom ROMs or custom recovery software that won't brick the phone.

    Well they can be popular in China.....usually for those who cant afford anything better.

    Yup...trademark infringement...copyright infringement...blah blah blah.

    OK I'll phone to my friend at Shenzhen Cheap'n'nasty Inc.

    Best guess it's not been shipped, or at least hasn't gone through Hong Kong Airport yet. If you wanted it in time for Christmas Day, not going to happen.

    Think the JXD gaming tablets are reasonable for the price. They're cheap, quality may not be much good, but they seem to work and have reasonable support.


    You are welcome.. happy to help. :)
