    I think it is under battery settings. So, Settings>Battery and at the bottom should be fastboot.

    You also need usb debugging turned on and if it is you can bypass the fastboot being turned off by use a cmd. prompt to boot into the bootloader.
    Go to settings/about phone/software info/more and tap the Build number about 10 times. this will give you the dev. options in settings, go into the dev options and check the usb debugging. Open a cmd prompt from your sdk folder or where ever you adb/fastboot and type " adb reboot bootloader"

    Are you sure you have a M8?

    Reasons I ask:

    1. That isn't Sense 6 or GPE
    2. The M8 never had Jelly Bean

    I bought this in China, and it and when I check "about" it says 4.4.2 jelly bean + the keyboards and some stuff ask me to chose between sense 6 and android versions, by the way it is missing functions of the m8 I know.
    my version is m8t

    I think you have a clone, and that is why you can't find most of this stuff. I am not sure where else to look.

    So what are my options and what can I do?

    If you want to root this phone you need to find a source on somewhere like XDA that has done it. I'd say the stock ROM for this clone phone is probably the same as other clones so it shouldn't be too hard.

    I am fairly certain that M8 specific ROMS will not work on this phone, they are designed for M8 hardware, not whatever is inside that phone

    Thinking about the initial question, fastboot does not exist on your phone, therefore it is the same as being turned off

    Have you looked under security for fastboot? Thats really odd having 4.4.2 JB. Android 4.4.2 should be KK...lol

    Default Re: unavailable functions

    yeah exactly, that's so weird I think the hardware is the same and also when I try the whole process of bootloading (when given the command in cmd prompt) it restarts the phone and at the bottom it shows "=> fastboot" and just stay like that

    The software is definitely not the same as a real M8.

    Get the app called 'CPU-Z' from the play store to see what hardware you actually have

    Yeah, you're going to have to look on xda for how to root that phone

    You won't be able to use any M8 ROMs though because the hardware is different and you'll brick your device

    do you think this phone even I root it, it will not support at least a fair set of functions?
  21. #21  

    Default Re: unavailable functions

    Depends what functions? If they are basic AOSP (pure android) functions they should be fine, I doubt any HTC specific stuff will work though

    You don't have any HTC software because you don't have a HTC

    oh I'm sorry, got it its just hard to believe that its partially functioning anyway I could install htcsofware?

    As I said, look on XDA, maybe by searching using your SOC code to find any ROMs available. I don't think your phone would be hard to root at all
