    Bahasa indonesia: kenapa terjadi bootloop setelah melakukan Hard reset…??

  3. Zach says:

    Does this mean that both slots can use 3G service in the same time? Or just that SIM2 can be used for 3G, and SIM1 will be automatically switched to 2G?

    If this means 3G x 3G active in the same time, it’s revolutionary. Really.

    I have successfully made changes to my phone and I am glad that the 2nd SIM is able to detect and access 3G. However, I have few observations.
    1. The apps which continuously run in background, such as mail, whatsapp, sms etc , seem to work only when the phone is active. The immediate push feature no longer works after the upgrade.
    2. Loosing network very often.
    3. There is a new soft button appeared at the bottom left of the screen, and it became difficult to navigate cause if that button is touched by mistake then the screen goes off. We already have the same button physically on the phone.
    4. Battery percentage is showing twice. Can the outside percentage be removed?

    Finally, how can I return to my original version?

    Thank you.

    • Well, you are using system ui! Better is to simply deodex stock rom and then use Dual Sim 3g mod

      • Partha Sarathi says:

        I am really sorry, but I am not able understand your response. I want to roll back to my original system, the old old system which was there when I bought the phone (3G only in first SIM and 2nd SIM only 2G), can you please share a step by step guide to roll back to restore? Thank you 🙂

    Can’t change to sim 2.First 1 is working but sim 2 is in roaming mode,when i try to select it it won’t do it.sometimes it will say “changing sim will take less than 10 secs” but then it still won’t change to sim 2.

  6. Nash says:

    It won’t let me switch to second sim,is it because my carrier does not support 2g anymore?
