    Hello, There is a problem with gsmart guru g1. It is locked with pattern, and I can't remember it. (I didn't use it for long time).
    To make things more clear I will list what I tried and what works, don't work:
    -Can't turn on internet (Wi-FI or mobile) to sign up to google account when pattern is not correct after few attempts.. (Notification bar won't move... Tried it during a call, and so on..)
    -Can enter factory mode (Volume Down), but it is chinese type (english language). There is no factory reset, or data wipe... NOT EVEN eMMC.... I think this factory mode is for testing purposes....
    -Can't enter fastboot, or download mode... (that's a problem here, because If I could enter it, I would easily use cmd fastboot and wipe it from there.... (Tried button combos with Volume up, Volume up + Down, Volume up + Home and so on...)
    -USB debugging mode is OFF... (Of course can't turn it on....(because it's locked...))
    -Power button doesn't work. (but it is not a problem here, I just stick usb charger and do combo with buttons to enter factory mode.)

    So this is interesting problem here... Because on other phones I could easily flash recoveries or change rom's... and so on... But this phone doesn't have normal stock recovery... I saw people on other chinese phones just choose eMMC in factory mode, but this option isn't there at all....
    I really appreciate any help...

    Yes, problem is it doesn't enter that recovery mode. It doesn't enter anything when pressing Volume UP...

    it is not just vol up.....it is vol up + the power button.

    is the phone at full charge?

    I know that it is VOL UP and Power, but If you read what I said, that power button doesn't work... I just plug in usb, it turns on and I just hold VOL UP... When it is turning on. If I hold VOL DOWN it enters factory mode, where is only testing things and reboot and power off...

    P.s. It is at 60~ %, I don't think it will don't let me enter recovery because its to low on battery ? Or does it ?

    well if the power button does not work.....not sure what you can do at this point, other than getting it fixed or get a new phone.

    But I do same combo with VOLUME UP when plugged USB in for charge, or If I reboot phone and hold VOLUME UP, it is same as holding power button isnt it.....

    i don't think so, but i do not know enough about your phone. even though the phone turns on your way, the power button still needs to be pressed.

    i just had a thought though.......you might want to look into using adb commands, but you will need a computer for that. here is the basic guide:ADB | Fastboot | Linux Commands. you can enter fastboot via adb.

    I thought about ADB, but I can't turn on USB debugging.
