  1. Hi,I use a a xiaomi redmi note 3 pro, I have problem updating it, it simply writes, update failed when I restart it that I should download the full rom.then the flash also stopped working which I feel it's due to its inability to update

    • Hello Oluwatosin,
      You cannot update your REdmi note 3 pro the Miui 8 with OTA. You need to download the full rom then flash it.

      See guide here will put your through.

  2. Good day prof. I have an infinix x551 cloned version which runs on android 6.0 marshmallow(fake as well). Unknowingly, before I came to discover that it was actually a cloned copy, I tried to degrade it to 4.4 os. Guy who did it used d real infinix ROM and now d fone is bricked. I downloaded 2 different ROMs from the internet and tried flashing with SP tool but I got error 5054 for d 1st file and error 4032 for d second. I tried flashing with Piranha box software and when I try to load scatter (preloaded) file, I get a prompt saying bad file, do not attempt write. Pls help me out. Thanks.

    • hello Jerry,
      I've had series of unforgettable encounters with some of this clone infinix smartphones that even flashing couldnot fix.

      My advice, get the exact same infinix X551 and flash it on your brick clone device. The roms you downloaded from the internet seems corrupted.

    • You have too many apps running on it, and the ram is so small. Factory reset it. It will be alright after then. But back up your files and doc before you factory reset it.

  6. Gud Afternoon Prof.
    Please, my infinix hot 3 keeps restarting itself. Amd it has been doing like dat for about 2 months now.
    I took it to their office and dey said i have to fix a little crack on the side of the screen for 17,400 before they can fix it for me. So, i took it to an engineer in ikeja to service it. But it is still going off once in a while. The phone is just 8 months old. Could it be a software issue? And will flashing it solve the problem?

    • Hello friend, N17,400 to fix a crack at the side of the screen… then how much is new infinix hot 3? How come about the crack?

      Doesn't the crack affect the power on or off button? If it doesn't, then factory reset it.

  7. I asked this question few threads back. I want to know if you can recommend someone within Osun-Ogun-Oyo-Lagos axis that can unlock a UK-locked phone for me. You can tell me the price…will be highly appreciated. Thanks

    • Hello Mr Victor,
      Unfortunately, I don't have anyone around that area I can recommend. the guy I have in Lag has disappeared into thin air. But you can actually unlock it online if you know the network it is locked to

  8. pls I use a Lenovo A390t, but I don't get 3g network, I have tried all the Sims available, even the settings menu where u can change ur network from 2g to 3g is not available, what do I do please

    • Hello Spotty,
      Ever since you've been using the Lenovo A390t, have you had 3G network on it before? From my little understanding of your Lenovo specification, it doesn't supports NG 3G Band…

  9. Hello yomi, my cousin is using a partner mobile KS1 with 512mb and 1gb inbuilt storage. but it keeps popping up with a notification that he doesn't av enough storage. he is using a 8gb SD card and all his apps are on d SD card. I'm guessing its d Google play services that is eating up d internal memory. what do u advise ?

    • No, its not the Google play services but the inbuild memory is very low. There are some system apps that takes in space, Cache also takes in space. the apps you run on it also takes in space, this alone is enough to pop out insufficient memory.

      Go to settings>>Apps>>Click on individual apps and clear its cache except Google Play services and Google play store. The thesame for every other apps. once done, reboot your device and check if that pop still display.

    • Hello P.I.M,
      do this, go to settings>>apps>>Click on individual apps and clear its cache but don't touch google play store and google play service.

      Do this for every app you have installed, and reboot your device. Once done, also check for application you don't use, uninstall it and you are good to go.

      If it doesn't fix it, factory reset your device.

    • Hello Emmanuel,
      iOS is like that… Did you create your own appstore password when you bought the phone from the first owner? Without that, you can't update any app nor the OS.

  22. Hello prof, I'm having problem with a gionee M5 mini.i flashed it with a file called primo Rm2 mini file which is the only file obtainable and the screen has been displaying black and white. Please is there a correct file for this device? I've really searched without success. Thank you

  23. My gionee p5 mini keeps restarting itself. This has been going on for day and to think that its a new phone baffles do I fix it? I've tried flashing it with the stock rom but the one I downloaded is giving me chip error on flastool.

    • Hello friend, You don't need to flash it. Which app did you downloaded before it started behaving that way?

      Uninstall any recent apps you downloaded, Go to settings>>Apps>>Clear individual app cache except google services and playstore. Reboot your device and check the performance.

      If it still persist, you'll need to check if all you apps are upto date, if not, update them.

      Your last resort is Factory reset.

    • Hello Romeo,
      to fix your smartphone error, kindly reboot your device and it will be fixed. Otherwise do the below if error persist.->

      Reboot in safe mode.

      To reboot in safe mode:
      –>Turn off your device
      –>Press and hold the power button to turn on, continue to hold until the logo screen appears
      –>Press and hold the volume down button until the reboot is finished
      –>You should see “Safe mode” at the bottom corner of your screen

      Once in safe mode, try entering the MMI code you were using before to see if the problem persists. If you don’t have issue sending the message at this point, then most likely an app you recently installed is causing the conflict. You can start by uninstalling the most recent app and go from there.
