Howdy! I am new here and I have been searching for an answer to this problem and this looks to be by far the best tech forum I have found for phones. Hopefully someone can help me and perhaps I can help someone else with what I have found. It seems there is very little info out there on these unnecto phones.
I have what is labeled as a Unnecto U-830 RUSH BKL. I am mentioning this because it is a wee bit different than the photos that I see of these. Mine does not have the two little holes on the top front to the left of the center. The rest of it is exactly like the picture.
This phone has one SIM card and had been activated with Cellular One. It has no SD card, but space for one, and a slot for a second SIM card.
When it comes up it is hopelessly pattern locked. There is no getting around it. The tapping the home key does not work.
After hours of playing with it this is what I have found.. Hopefully this will help somebody, and hopefully it is like some other phone and someone can help me..
If you hold down the home key and turn it on, it will come up in safe mode. That is totally useless. It is still pattern locked.
If you hold the volume rocker in the up position and the power button until the screen backlight comes on (it is a black screen but you can see the backlight) and than let go of the power button, but hold the volume up button until the backligt goes back off, it will come up in sort of a test and rescue mode.
I say sort of because you have the option to factory wipe the phone, but you need the damn pattern code to do it.
However, you can pull down the top menu and get into settings. Sadly, the security-> wipe or reset needs the swipe code and you need the swipe code to turn the swipe code off.
If you go into the phones info and tap 7 times on the build it will enable developer mode and you get a menu in settings. You can turn USB debuging on there.
There is an easter egg in it. If you tap a bunch of times fast on the Android build number you get a spinning K and if you muck with that you get an Android logo screen and if you muck with that you get a bunch of android tiles that move or you can drag around. Fun but not useful.
I have tried installing adb and all of the drivers I can find. It shows up but it shows up as offline. I tried the PDA NET thing but that seems to need software running on the phone.
I have an SD card I can put stuff on. Is there another hidden boot menu or a way from one of the task managers to run an app from the SD card, or has anybody had luck with ADB and these things?
Thank you all so much in advance!
