0

You are messing around with custom Roms, tweaking your Gionee M2 and doing some other mind blowing stuffs on your M2 right?

So you just bricked your Gionee M2,then you are at the right place and you’re reading the right article.

image

There are some many reasons that can cause your phone to brick and bricking also has two categories they include :
1 Soft Brick
and
2 Hard Brick

If you soft bricked your phone then you’re safe.

If you hard bricked your phone their are two things involved,is either you take it to the service center or buy a new phone.

Am writing this post on Ayoproxy.com for those who have soft bricked their Gionee M2.

HOW TO UN-BRICK YOUR GIONEE M2
You will need the following ;
Your head (Brain)
CWM recovery installed on your phone before.
An SD card
And Stock ROM……

I hope you can still boot to recovery?

If yes…

Download the stock ROM for Gionee m2 HERE
Copy to your SD card
Boot to your recovery and install the downloaded stock ROM like you re installing a custom ROM.

FLASHING INSTRUCTIONS
Boot to recovery
Wipe Data Preflash
If you don’t ve data preflash for those using CWM recovery, just wipe data,cache,dalvik cache
Goto install zip from SD card
Locate the Stock ROM and flash
It will take like 5mins or more to boot up,
Be patient…..

I  can’t boot to recovery.
This is a bad news that means you have to follow a advance tutorial with the help of SP FlashTool. But am yet to write the tutorial. 😨

NOTE : THIS TUTORIAL WORKS FOR EVERY OTHER ANDROID DEVICES BUT YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE FILE UPLOADED HERE FOR ANY OTHER DEVICE EXCEPT GIONEE M2.

I love to read comments they encourage me.

Infinix: Grim future ahead?

0

Infinix Mobility, one of the fastest growing smartphone companies in Nigeria is now the name in every household.  One in two Nigerians own an Infinix smartphone and virtually every Nigerian has heard of the Infinix brand of smartphones.

Going through the current tech trend and situation of things in Nigeria, It may be time for Infinix to “step up its game”.

  1. WHERE THE ARE THE ACCESORIES?

Hey, If you don’t plan to cut the 3.5mm headphone jack from your smartphone design(Apple style), you might want to consider including those factory made earphones we’re so proud of.

The disappointment is always crushing when our smartphones ship without important accessories like earphones, earbuds, and in some cases extra USB adapters. Other major brands in Nigeria sell their phones with accessories like Covers (with leather, rubber options), Screen Guard, OTG Cables etc regardless of the budget level.

We salute them for including a tampered glass for the Infinix Note 3, but it wouldn’t have hurt to include a cover.. It’s the little things, right? 

2. LONG LASTING FLASH CHARGERS

Ain’t nothing compared to the joy you get when your device can go from 0 to 100 real quick.  It’s awesome, but it breaks your heart that the charger might be useless after some months. Have you ever noticed the issues with the Infinix chargers lately?

The USB cable just fails you gradually, it might require you to purchase another USB CABLE.

Later the Adapter’s USB port starts to shake and misbehave. At the end you’re left with a useless Infinix  Flash Charger (It’s Terrible) getting another flash charging charger is an even worse Headache.

Infinix should get better by providing us with quality USB Cables and Adapters.

3. WHERE TO BUY ORIGINAL ACCESSORIES

With the brand Infinix has been able to build it is rather surprising that they are yet to have a certified store/partner that sells Original Infinix Accessories. It may prove to be a good idea if Infinix can urge Oraimo, a long time partner, to create accesories for them and sell through their accredited online and offline stores across Nigeria and Africa at large. This will be a solution to the problem of unavailability of Original Infinix Accessories.

Conclusion :  If you think TechPhreak has omitted anything that hurts your heart about Infinix please don’t hesitate to let us know via the comment box below.

Thanks for reading and don’t forget to share.

 

Leaked Sketch Photo Of Iphone 7 Pro Has Two iSight Camera And No Headphone Jack

0

Its just getting crazier for Apple this days, today we came across design schematics from Japan and it seems Apple is trashing the Iphone 7 Plus name and headphone jack,  iPhone 7 Pro moniker and two iSight cameras may be in.

Detailed drawings of Apple’s larger-sized iPhone 7 suggest that it’ll be the same thickness as the iPhone 6S Plus at 7.3mm, but add new features, according to Japanese magazine Mac Fan.

A dual-lens rear camera is the phablet-sized highlight of this iPhone 7 Pro sketch, and it backs up last week’s newly discovered Apple patent for telephoto and broader lenses in one device.

Iphone 7 Plus

Two main Camera features have been used on smartphones recently: the LG G5 can take either tighter, normal 16MP pictures or wider 8MP photos with its second camera.

The Huawei P9 simultaneously shoots black-and-white photos with more detail and color photos for more vivid tones, and then combines them into one with an adjustable bokeh effect.

These aren’t even the two best camera phones. That title belongs to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, so Apple has its work cut out for itself in September.

It’s clear to everyone that Apple needs to improve on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus camera in the face of mounting competition, and a dual camera setup is one way of doing just that.

However, it’s unclear to most why the company would axe the iPhone headphone jack, as rumors have suggested. They may have more to do with each other than you think.

The schematics indicate the iPhone 7 Pro will be the same dimensions as the iPhone 6S Plus, even with the second iSight camera onboard.

That may be why Apple is allegedly consolidating the headphone jack and Lighting port. Every bit of extra space counts when it comes to the world’s best phones.

In conclusion, the sketch from Japan might be true or false we don’t know if Apple will call it iPhone 7 Pro or maybe they will use this design, more information will be available by Mid-September.

Researchers Break Apple’s Encryption

0

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University (JHU), led by Matthew D. Green, have found a bug in Apple’s encryption. It can allow a skilled attacker to decrypt secure photos and videos sent as messages. The flaw might not have been used by the FBI? to recover information on the San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone, but it proves that encryption isn’t fool proof as Apple Claimed.

Researchers Break Apple’s Encryption

Green is a cryptographer and said that a court compelling Apple to undo its own security makes no sense as there are already bugs which can be exploited. He said, “Even Apple, with all their skills — and they have terrific cryptographers — wasn’t able to quite get this right.” Green’s team of graduate students will publish a paper describing the bug as soon as Apple issues a patch for it.

Green said that it’s frightening that “we’re having this conversation about adding back doors to encryption when we can’t even get basic encryption right.”

In conclusion this research has prove that the so called “Almighty Apple” with “Almighty Encryption”  on expensive smartphone are not truly safe as advertised.
