How I fixed my China phone

I bought the LAUDE Pulse S800 off ebay for £24.99 with delivery charge as a temporary phone because my old trusty Galaxy S i9000 couldn’t handle the latest Android ROM, and my (early) upgrade date isn’t until March. All was perfect, however when I came to reinstall all my apps I was getting the dreaded “Not enough space” message. Confused I dug deaper only to discover that the app partition was only 900 megabytes.

With the help of someone over at Needrom.com I now have over 3 gigabyte data partion and as a bonus no more annoying loud start-up music.

(This may or may not work with the Landvo L200 3G version)

How to flash

1.  Backup with MTK Droid tools
2. Download and extract ROM files with WinRAR 5 or newer
3. Flash with SP Flash Tool.

(How do I do that?)

*Install SP Drivers – I found this MT6577 USB VCOM works best

(Note: If you want to install drivers on win 8.1 64-bit, you will need to reboot Windows into recovery mode, troubleshoot, advanced options, startup settings, restart, # 7 disable driver signature enforcement)

* Open SP Flash Tool, then click Scatter-loading button to load the txt scatter file
* Turn off your phone
* Hit Download button
* Connect phone to USB with data cable
* Wait for the green circle
* Disconnect phone

4. After install start recovery mode, (hold volume+ and power button, then wait until prompt for recovery mode) wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache partition

5. You’re done, enjoy
