I wonder if the phone is locked by the carrier?
It's a $30 clone, and I don't believe it's legal for carriers to sell clones.
I downloaded this app it is not working in this device,
You got a crappy clone man..........
Are you familiar with the term "you get what you pay for"
Well you paid for a piece of crap and you got a piece of crap.
I'm not sure anyone can help you.
sometimes a piece of crap can be a full crap
This thread is still in my feed. And thanks for posting more details about it.
This is a fake Samsung?
"KST" in the kernel string rather than "CST"* that's the first time I've seen that in a knock-off Samsung kernel string. Because that's one of the things I've often used to determine a real Samsung from a counterfeit.
But then there is still something rather funky going on with the internal storage on this phone.
* KST meaning Korea Standard Time, where Samsung usually builds their firmware. CST meaning China Standard Time, where Chinese knock-offs come from.
I would recommend that you do a factory reset and see if that does any good.
Weather it is a knockoff or the real thing, their is something weird going on with your storage.
During some research I found that the makers of these clone phones can also fake the amount of internal memory, RAM and processor to make it look like the phone is better than it actually is... If you want to save some money I would just buy a brand name china phone. Thats sounds like a bit of an oxymoron but there are some really great phones you can get that are faster and better than the Samsung line and are a lot cheaper... I go to Pandawill.com but there are a lot of reputable sites.
the most funny thing about this phone is that it has everything that a real branded phone has. I can use it's 3G, Sensors, I can play very high quality 3D games. it's almost a complete phone except it's storage. the thing that i don't understand is that why would someone produce such phones. they could add some more 100MB storage then it would be a complete phone like a real samsung and they could make a name for it.
This phone is the prove that producing a phone costs about 10% of what we pay for buying it.
If I can root this phone I will find and buy 4 more for my friends and they can use it.
I can now install my apps in SD Card but the only problem is that sometimes i get some pop ups that says Storage is Full.
Root Genius and Kingo Root PC programs may work but you will get stuck with their SU and other things they also install.
Yes be sure! it's a fake samsung because when i get to odin mode, it doesn't send any signal to computer and also it's back cover is made from a cheap plastic. but it doesn't look like a fake, some people are ready to buy it from me.
Yeah bro you are right! rooting also needs some space and i have tried all of those things they didn't work.
Did you try different USB cables?
Which version of Odin?
Proper drivers installed?
Please take the back cover off and get a HD close-up photo (of cover and inside back of phone).
As to the amount of space...sounds as if when whoever it was that setup the flashing of the device(s), unmounted a partition before flashing. Which reallocates the sizing of the other partitions that are mounted.
.....or could be simply, they went cheap with memory chips
Lmao too funny this made my night
Thanks for your reply.
I tried 3 different usb cables in all available ports of 2 computers and used Odin 3.07 and latest version.
Drivers are installed. I can use it as a debugger for development of apps. Adb is working fine but sometimes it gets offline.
Also I installed Samsung Kies and Kies3 but they don't detect the phone when i plug in USB port.
I will take a photo of back cover and back of phone.
I have a Galaxy S4, and I rooted it by installing TWRP, and then using TWRP to install SuperSU.
60MB of internal memory sounds circa early '80s.
@faisal118 are you familiar with terminal commands? You could catalog ALL partitions mounted and unmounted. That would give you what the full value of the storage on the phone is. Im not savvy enough to tell you the command, but maybe somebody else here is.
I wonder if the other storage is formatted incorrectly and therefore Android isn't recognizing them as the proper storage amount.....
If you look, I already suggested that.
