    Hi, Ill give you a link with people discussing this problem http://vondroid.com/threads/latest-software-version.22403/#.U4TXIfmSwXx, you may want to read all of it until you decide what to do and I'll also tell you what I did.

    In my case issues like battery/wifi I havent noticed on my phone. But I had the screen flashing. I bought the phone from Pandawill. What I did to get rid of screen flashing:
    Do step "1. How to Install PC bootloader drivers." from this guide http://vondroid.com/threads/collection-how-tos-noob-friendly.10478/#.U4TKlvmSwXx (note: to enter bootloader mode turn off your phone, then press volume down, keep volume down pressed and also press power button, after that please notice the colours of the screen, it can be black screen with white text or white screen with black text, this will be useful later). After you have installed drivers go again in bootloader mode, and there are two options.

    a. If the screen that boots is black with white text then install ClockworkMod 6.0.3.0 with this guide http://vondroid.com/threads/clockworkmod-recovery.5157/#.U4TIHPmSwXw , then after it is installed shut down phone and boot to clockworkmod by pressing volume up, keep volume up pressed and also press power button. Then browse the menus and do a backup, then Wipe Data, and Wipe Cache.

    b. If the screen that comes is white with black text then do step " 3. How to Install Clockworkmod" from this guide http://vondroid.com/threads/collection-how-tos-noob-friendly.10478/#.U4TKlvmSwXx, (download the cwm 6.0.3 from there) then after it is installed shut down phone and boot to clockworkmod by pressing volume up, keep volume up pressed and also press power button. Then browse the menus and do a backup, then Wipe Data, and Wipe Cache.

    For my phone I did version a. and it fixed my screen flashing, but be adviced that every phone may be from a diferent batch and doing these kinds of things always come with a risk to break it even more.

    copy it on your sdcard, reboot in cwm, clear cache, clear dalvick, reset factory settings, then install it......when done, just go via root file explore & edit or replace your gps & apn network config files depending on your country and network.......for gps only thing to make it work faster is replace the network details with your countries ntp server...below is a link for ntp server details, just change the last two letters to your countries code ( eg: uk, usa, au ) to view it..........also below is a download link for the apn config file worldwide it has all settings for worldwide, just copy it to your ( root /etc/system folder) and set its chmod to ( rw-r-r )........reboot and you done

    http://www.pool.ntp.org/zone/uk ...................( important for best results use the close ntp server to you )
