    I got my phone. I'm quite impressive.
    - Does anyone know how to remove all the apps and use the google default apps?
    - How do you make a backup of the current rom? Can you do this with MtkDroidTools_v247?
    - Is there any change to change it to the stock rom?

    Do you need to place a screen protector when the phone has Gorilla Glass 2 applied?

    New version 2.4.7 http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=43003601&postcount=292

    Changes:
    • Get root by clicking the ROOT button on phones with v3.4.5 kernel (Android 4.2.1 on MT6589) by means of the motochopper exploit (credit to djrbliss ). After reboot it is offered to make in turn a backup, to reinstall SU (It is recommended! Since SuperSu is initially set as non system application and will be gone after reset on factory defaults! ), to make and download to phone CWM and boot with root shell.
    • In ini the file is added a key of SocToScatName in which there is a compliance of numbers of the "cut-down" platforms (about which doesn't know SPFT) to numbers of platforms with which SPFT works. (6513:6573,6515:6575,6517:6577,8317:6577,8377:6577 ,8389:6589). Now there will be no message about false hardware if, for example, SPFT defines a phone as 6575, and in a kernel someone changed to 6515. Information will be visible now as Hardware: MT6575 (MT6515? )

    I can't get a copy of th original rom for Jiayu G3S.
    P.Kosunen: Does anyone know how to get this of your phone? (keep as backup if anything goes wrong ;-) ) Any tutorial for MTK Droid Root & Tools software.

    Which Chinese apps to delete?
    Which launcher did you use? The one that cames with the phone or another like Nova launcher?

    Thanks. I will try this. Last weekend I used this program, but the backup button was deactivated. The only thing I could do was changing EMEI. Is there anything else I must do before?

    Have you installed ADB drivers? I had above driver already installed for some other phone, don't know if newer/better exists somewhere.

    Yep. It showed me the information about the phone. Clicked the second tab where the button 'backup' stands, but it was deactivated. I will try it another time. Thanks.

    Update
    After clicking the 'root' button, I could click the backup button. Thanks.

    It seems very good, solid construction and good software. Battery is AWESOME!!!

    Only thing i miss from my previous phone (SE Neo V) is... custom roms and kernels.

    Also mase a quick review for it on youtube, good quality

    Yes, this is my first smartphone and the battery life is very good! I used it for more then 3 days now. I only use this smartphone for sms, something calling, a couple of hours internet through wifi/3G. I think if I turn on wifi and 3g all the time, that the battery life would be less, but still good.

    For know, I didn't found any custom roms, but I like the rom. It's pre-rooted so you can deleted the chinese apps and install, if you want, your own launcher, like Novo or Apex.

    I also like that the smartphone is pretty fast.

    The only thing I didn't test is the gps. Is there an app that I can't test gps?

    I'm talking about my phone. It's faulty.

    3) When connected to USB charger, or computer battery percentage does not increase, I've left it for hours and it doesn't move, battery has gone flat connected it up, and still 1%. When I plug into computer USB notification does not appear so can't see it. Tried several cables.
