How to force a restart of your GooApple:
Deep at the bottom of the 3.5 headphone jack there is a restart-button. Use a small tool like a bent paperclip to reach it.
You can use this restart-button if your phone freezes and can not be restarted using the normal power-button.

How to see if your GooApple is really genuine ‘V5 3G’ or fake:
Go to the phone (dial number) -section (the interface you use to call someone) and dial:
*#2170#*
If your display returns the following it is probably a good ‘V5 3G’:
PCB = PCB_E907
MTK_MODEM_SUPPORT = modem_3g

Recovery-menu explained:
The Recovery-menu is a boot-menu that can be used to backup, restore or change ROMs in your GooApple phone.
This menu can be either in English or Chinese and may vary slightly depending on what type of Recovery came pre-installed on your phone.
You can install a different Recovery-menu of your phone using various methods.
To access the Recovery-menu:
– Turn off your phone.
– Press and hold the PLUS-button and POWER-button on your phone until you arrive at a menu.

Factory-test-menu:
This can be used to test the hardware functionality of your phone.
I don’t know how this works but maybe someone here can contribute with information on how to use it?
To access the Factory-test-menu:
– Turn off your phone.
– Press and hold the MINUS-button and POWER-button on your phone until you arrive at a menu.
