Why, when choosing a 3G network mode, it sometimes automatically switches to 2G and how to solve this problem?
For some firmware in the settings, the вЂњ3GвЂќ mode means вЂњ2G + 3GвЂќ with the priority of the latter. You can fix this by choosing 3G mode in the settings, then dialing the code вЂњ* # * # 4636 # * # *вЂќ in the dialer, in the window that appears, go along the path вЂњPhone InformationвЂќ>вЂњSet Preferred Network TypeвЂќ and select вЂњWCDMA onlyвЂќ
How to вЂњoverclockвЂќ a smartphone?
Overclocking is carried out using the built-in ChronoKernel firmware by increasing the processor frequency (by default 800 MHz with the possibility of increasing to 1245 MHz) and using a script for overclocking DDR (more details under the "Useful" spoiler).
Why did the 3G connection disappear in the firmware, data transfer does not turn on, and in the settings in the item вЂњCommunication module firmwareвЂќ it shows вЂњXXXXвЂќ and how to fix it?
This happened as a result of damage to the вЂњmodemfsвЂќ section in the phone. To return everything to its place, you need to flash the modem you need for this reference .
Note! If you selected modems for CWM, then you can sew them through TWRP, but you have to do this 2 times. After the first installation, in the settings, the firmware of the communication module will be defined as вЂњUnknownвЂќ, and after the second, everything will be as it should.

What is memory re-allocation, what is it for, and what file to re-allocate?
This is the process of resizing memory in some partitions at the expense of others. It is needed because when installing custom firmware in the "system" section there is not enough space to install GApps. Of the presented selection of files for re-allocation of memory, I personally recommend choosing this one - CWM_ReParted_SY820_CA130_DA1800_SD1000
1. Download the archive from CWM:Temporary CWM 2. Copy it to the root of the memory card 3. Go into the recovery (hold down the Volume +, Home and Power buttons simultaneously) 4. Use the volume buttons to select apply update from sdcard, the power button - confirmation 5. Select the archive with CWM and install it.
1. Install the stock firmware Android 4.1.2 (if already installed, skip this item) 2. Download the firmware, GAPPS for the Android firmware version (5.1 or 6.0, put the gapps package at your discretion), as well as the Chrono corer2.24.7 3. Copy the firmware, GAPPS and kernel to the root of the memory card 4. Run a temporary CWM, install the Chrono r2.24.7 kernel, restart the recovery 5. Back up the partitions: click Backup and select Data, Boot and System 6. Next, click wipe and select system, data and cache 7. Click on Install, select the archive with the firmware and GAPPS 8. Confirm installation 9. Reboot the device
Not in every case, you can just update, sometimes you need to install from scratch. Firmware update examples: 1. Transition SM12.1->CM13. Since the firmware is incompatible, you need a "clean" installation, for this you need to make wipe system, data and cache in CWM / TWRP. Similarly for SM13->CM12.1. 2. When updating CM12.1 / 13->CM12.1 / 13 from another developer, you need a "clean" installation, for this you need to make wipe system, data and cache in CWM / TWRP. 3. When updating CM12.1 / 13->CM12.1 / 13 from one developer, you donвЂ™t need to do wipe (unless the developer asks for it). Note WhenCM13 by SergeylThere are 2 types: Standard and Full. Upon transition CM13 Standard->CM13 Complete, you need a "clean" installation (because the firmware is incompatible), for this you need to make wipe system, data and cache in CWM / TWRP. Similarly with CM13 Full->CM13 Standard. When updating the firmware of one type, wipe does not need to be done (unless the developer asks for it).
If you decide to roll back to the stock firmware 4.1, go tothis topic. Firmware and instructions are in that topic.

stalker280286 , Sm14, sm15. Yes like sm13 too, need to look configs. I'm talking about their firmware. But keep in mind not all applications support this format. When tested, some applications refuse to see the external card
Guys, save. I sew the CWM, the core of which is all sewn immediately after rekaveri some reason, turned, took a CD, threw the script re-initialization, he hung up because of a lack / sdcard0 (only / sdcard and / sdcard1) decided to make a wipe but again, swearing on the most sd0. I decided to flash the stock and re-do, and in anything except this PhilZ Touch 6 can not boot. What to do?
The people did everything according to instructions installed 12 cm without GAPS system is not loaded I forgot all done on a manual for beginners or there at the end of the new kernel should be chrono? Podsazheny plizz with plus me
