You should try putting "MX Player" onto your phone instead of the one it came with, and can combine it with "Audipo" which is merely for speeding up mp3 podcasts.

Also, check in your Settings - Storage, whether you have "Use external SD as primary" ticked/checked - if it is/isn't, and you're on Kitkat, might be why data/pics on SD-card not being picked-up.
I've had apps close on home page when that's ticked, and they're saved to the phone - very finicky, so play around with that setting, and see if makes a diff. (before purchase new SD-card).

Hi! Okay so, I've had my Huawei y300 for about... 2 months now. It's a second hand, and so far it's been fantastic. Although, I am sort of panicking at the moment because I sent like... 14 songs just now, then all of a sudden the internal storage just bazookas up. From a 500+mb available for apps to a 150mb. Also, the gallery won't read any of the pictures stored in my 2gb SD card and the normal app for music player won't read any of its music. Both apps can't open either. It's just a black space. Also, whenever I open my camera, it won't work either, because I think it's connected to its gallery so... And, if open the gallery/music/camera, it ends up hanging on me.

I've tried clearing my cache and data on a few apps but so far, all I got was a 210mb available (for apps). Nothing else. The themes won't open either.
I'm really panicking now. This happened only now, and I don't know what to do.

I've restarted my phone several times but the problem still occurs.

I never tried updating the system or anything. No back-ups, I've downloaded several apps, but in the end deleted them.

Please help me. D:

> In reply to jagan @ 2015-03-10 17:40 from u{JP - click to readDo a Google search for "Modaco (website) Prohunter (he/she/it posted the instructions to unlock bootloader, root the phone etc.) - it works, but at the point you need to put in the (bootloader?) code, you'll need the correct drivers on your PC to get past that point.

I can't remember which Huawei drivers I downloaded, but a Google search brought Up a file to unzip & run, and it worked after that.

Then, when you've rooted successfully, search "Modaco Y300 Custom ROMs" and there's a list to work from - the best ROM I've found is CyanogenMod 11 (KitKat 4.4.x) by Dazzozo.

Make sure that within the rooting process, you backup the ROM your phone came with - it's gotten me out of trouble a few times, but generally, I learned a lot from rooting/putting on ROMs, it's fun, and smoother than the stock ROM.

Just use common sense when/if unsure about some steps, but it's not all that daunting ...

This was supposedly a upgrade for the Telstra ZTE that the screen faded on. This has to be the worst phone I have ever had, even going back to the over shoulder Brick that was my first. Every time they say to " press 1" it disconnects.
I have been ready to smash it on many occasions.

Being honest here, I regret buying this so much. It's not scratch resistant like ye say, it scratches rediculiously easy and the front camera is atrocious! This has been happening since this phone was bought new, when typing the keyboard shuts off for 5 minutes comes back on for two seconds then goes again. At one stage I had to restart it 10 times within that one hour. Never again do I buy a phone from this make.
