Testing Roxy guitar made in VN

I bought this HSH ST like guitar thru bidding on Ebay, 2 years ago. There are 2 split switches on it.

I am promoting for free, since I am Viet from abroad (normal non ?). Sorry for the playing, which doesn’t show the full potentiality of this guitar.

I am fed up of some guys in forii for their acerbated comments. Well, I can’t afford to get expensive branded guitars, which are for experts. I am not one of them …

Old man mumbling

I want to go home

start the countdown

prepare the gown

spooky to some.

I want to go home

endure sorrow

tears down slow

deep to fathom

I want to go home

darkness around me

dim light on the sea

of tears, abalone.

I am a seafarer

don’t know where I am

don’t know where I came

wish to be somewhere.

Safe trip to Heaven

think no more

bleed no more

to find a safe haven.

at last a safe haven.

I am so tired

fighting the wind

before, behind

even I am tied,

to this existence

I can’t grasp events

how can I sense

their existence ?

Netherland, neithersea

the boat bobs quietly

the sky is clearly

blue like wavy sea;

I don’t know where I am.

around me the bleakness,

daylight then darkness.

I wait for a sign.

Hello,

1) Intro:

– Mtk6572, 256 MB ram,256 MB rom, dual sim 3G,android 4,2 …

I have bricked my GT.72, some months ago, After trying to unbrick it for a long time unsuccessfully, and searching for help in forii, I thought it was broken for good. I kept it in its box to wait for a future luminous idea.

Today, I am able to unbrick the GT-72.

2) Unbricking;

By following XDA, chinese sites , youtube etc … and trying a lot of things for my other Android smartphones, I came up with:

– Mediatek SP-Flash tool 5.1343.1
– Preloader drIver USB_Drivers_All-rar: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1x… . Install and reboot the PC.
– Geebuying.com GT-72 stock rom (via needrom.com). 7Zip extract the rar file.

a) Power off GT-72

b) Start SP-Flash tool
– Set the scatter filepath
– Check Preloader.Uboot,bootimg,recovery
– Click on Download
– GT-72: Press power and volume down and inset the USB cable into the PC. Keep them pressed till the end of the process, the PC should detect the Vcom, such as Preloader Vcom port (com5). This is what I see at the SP-Flash tool screen, lower right. The execution is shown by red , yellow, progression bars … at the bottom of the SP-Flash screen.
– At the end, a round green symbol will be shown (download Ok).
– Unlug the USB cable from the PC and smartphone.
– Power on the Smartphone, Mine is booting up and is usable again …

Thanks to the many contributors on the web.

Hello,

Happy new year 2015.

I open the year with the new article topics: Android rooting for MTK chips.

I use Vroot to root THL T6 pro and Landvo 550. After the rooting I switch to SuperSu from Playstore (safer ?).

PNG – 229.7 kb PNG – 188.2 kb

Since I have quite a lot of drivers, I think this rar file will be a help:

Preloader drIver USB_Drivers_All-rar: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1x… . Install and reboot the PC.

Thanks to the many contributors on the web and Vroot guys.

I don’t want to feel,

I don’t want to fill,

the void is around,

the void, my wound.

Feeling the void
