Fix for SIM 2 not working issue with LeEco Le 2 Phone

LeEco Le 2 superphone has created a lot of interest among smartphone users because of the affordable price with impeccable specs. Being a gadget freak myself, I was able to get hold of the Le 2 phone on the first ever flash sales on 28th June 2016. I received my phone on 1st July via Flipkart and ever since I opened the phone I am in love with it. This is a real beauty and certainly will give orgasms to many gadget lovers. The beauty of this phone is certainly negated by the pathetic LeEco support team. They have the lame support I have ever seen from a tech/product company. Anyway this post is not about ranting about my bitter experience with their support team but about the fix for the issue “SIM 2 stop functioning after the latest EUI 5.8.015s OTA update for Le 2“.


The story So far

LeEco started the OTA update from 4th July for Le 2 phones. The update changes the EUi version to 5.8.015s from the existing 5.6 version. This new update brings lot of new features to the phone like VoLTE, App Lock via finger print, Phone Manager, Data Usage checker and removed 2 beautiful features Voice command for camera and Call recording feature. As soon as I got the notification about the OTA update, I was happy to try out as I badly wanted the full VoLTE support like ability to make video call over VoLTE via JIO4G sim. So I started downloading the OTA update of around 430 MB. The update went smoothly and phone rebooted. That’s when my problem started. After the OTA update I noticed that the SIM2 slot in my phone was greyed out and it was not detecting my BSNL SIM. I thought it was a network issue so tried the following:

  • Rebooted the phone (Did not fix)
  • Put the phone into and out of aeroplane mode (Did not fix)
  • Swapped the BSNL SIM with Airtel and Vodafone (Did not fix)
  • Swapped the SIM with my JIO 4G sim which was on slot 1 and got tower on BSNL which was now on slot 2 and JIO 4G loose tower. (Did not fix)
  • Tried searching network manually and it said error in searching (Did not fix)
  • Tried a factory restore (Did not fix)

At this time I was so mad that I was literally cursing LeEco. I called up their Tech Support via the toll free number 180030101838 (Toll free/Available 24/7). The guy named Shivam took my call and talked nicely using a scripted verse. He was unaware of this issue when half of the users were crying about it in their support forum. He assured me a call back in 24-48 hours and told issue will be fixed (So scripted). I asked for a service ticket number and he told they don’t have such a ticket number (Seems like they do not use a CRM). Asked to transfer the call to his Supervisor (somebody by the name Rishab/Roshan) and he told he cant transfer the call. This shows how lame their support is. (Oops I am still cribbing about it).

I thought buying the phone was a mistake, but I loved the phone. So at this point it seems if we want to use this phone we are on our own and it is of no use to expect support from LeEco. I even contacted Flipkart and initiated a refund request which they happily agreed. But as I mentioned earlier, I loved this phone and I was trying various methods to fix the issue as I was sure the SIM2 not working was not a hardware fault but has caused by the Update. So I did try fixing it myself and finally now I am able to use both the SIMs, yes you got it right I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIX THE SIM 2 NOT WORKING ISSUE with the Le 2.

What I Did to fix the issue:

The OTA update released by LeEco had bugs as if they were in a hurry to push out to users to create more user interest to buy Le 2 phone. So I thought of downloading the whole massive 1.7GB of offline update.

I downloaded the whole EUI 5.8.01s update and installed it via Updater app. Once my system got updated and phone rebooted wow both SIMs were working fine.

If you do not know how to do manual offline update, you can read further. But if you are aware of the manual update just do it and enjoy your Le 2 super phone.

Steps for manual offline update:

  1. Download the complete package from official LeEco repository by clicking the below link

EUI 5.8.01s file for Le 2

  1. Connect your Le 2 phone to PC using the supplied cable.
  2. In Le 2 phone connect it as MTP and it will be shown as Le X526 in your PC Explore. Click on that and it will show you the storage drive.
  3. Copy the downloaded file from your PC to the root folder of the storage drive.
  4. Rename the just copied file to
  5. Open the System Update app in your phone.
  6. At the top right, click on the 3 vertical dots and select Local Update.

It will now automatically detect the update file on the storage and start the update process. Just relax and let the system do it’s task automatically. Once the system reboots after applying update you will get both the SIM slots working.

Please let us know if this worked for you. If you want more tutorials on Le 2, please write in comment.

Android Mobile Reviews

Jio Play Android App: First Impression

This is the second in the series of post related to Jio Apps. The first one covered about Jio Mags app, which is an Android App for reading magazines on the go.

Jio Play is the app offering from Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited for watching Live TV. With high speed Internet offering via 4G, watching TV on the Go is a breeze. And to complement the high speed Internet service Jio has launched many entertainment app to take advantage of 4G network. Recent entry of Netflix in India has intensified the competition of streaming service. But if we talk about competition, Jio Play remains at the top in terms of content and quality. So lets have a look at what is in store for us.

Download and Installation

Jio Play is not yet launched for Public (available as limited beta via Play Store) so can not be directly downloaded via Play store. However you can install it by getting the .apk file from someone else and installation will continue without any hassle. Like all other Jio Apps, Jio Play needs a Jio ID and password to be usable.

Channel List

Jio Play has the highest number of channel availability. Currently there are 301 channel available in Jio Play and Hotstar too is available inside Jio Play. Out of the 301 channels , 27 are HD channels but only 24 HD channels as mentioned below are operational in Jio Play.



Quality and User Experience

Jio Play is having a very clean and intuitive user Interface and offers a very immersive TV watching experience. During our usage most of the time the default video quality appeared in HD and channels played without any lag. But if the bandwidth availability is low the player automatically switch the video quality to offer a non stop viewing experience. The sound quality is also quite good.

The most beneficial aspect of Jio Play is you can use it to stream the Live TV to your capable HD TV set and watch all your favorite channels on the TV. (For this to work you need to have wireless display capability on your phone and Wi-fi on the TV. )

Another nice feature of Jio Play is Catch Up TV function. So if you have missed your favorite TV program from yesterday or from last week, you can watch those by dragging the slider to that particular date and time. And yes, you can even pause the Live TV if you have an important call to attend or finish your cooking in the evening.

Jio Play Screens

As of now with trial offers, all the Jio apps subscription are free and in future we expect either a very economical tariff plan or free offer with certain recharge plans for Jio Play. So this will be the best choice to watch TV on the go while using your mobile to stream live TV on your TV when you are at home. With as much as 25 HD TV channels in the offering it is quite good option to have a HD TV viewing experience.

Jio Play offers a blissful TV viewing experience and you can watch your favorite program at your own comfort and schedule.


Jio Mags Android app: The first impression

Reliance Jio is all set to launch 4G Services across India. As Internet speed over 4G network is high, it will facilitate entertainment on the go. To complement their 4G services they are also going to launch many apps to let the users glue to the device. As the 4G service is already launched for the employees and Channel Partners and I am being a Channel Partner of Reliance Jio, I got access to many Apps like Jio Mags, which are still not released to mainstream users (though many apps are already in stable build). Following are the list of Android apps by reliance Jio which I have been using and I will cover each app in a separate post.

Note: As Jio Chat and Jo Money are launched I am not going to cover those.

  1. Jio Mags (App for reading magazine on the go)
  2. Jio Play (App for watching TV on the go)
  3. Jio Beats (App for streaming music on the go)
  4. Jio On-Demand (App for watching on demand content)
  5. Jio ExpressNews (News reading app)
  6. My Jio (One stop app for managing your Jio services, recharge and bill pay)

So here we go with our first look of Jio Mags Android app.

Download & Installation:

Jio Mags like all other Android Apps from Reliance Jio is not available to download directly from Play store. As the availability is limited to Employees and Channel partners, one need to be signed up as a beta tester to get hold of the download via Play Store. For this a Jio ID is required.

All the Jio apps are login protected, so if you get hold of the apk and can install the apps, as of now you might not be able to use it unless you get a Jio ID.

After the Jio Mags app is installed via playstore and opened, you will see the login screen where it will ask for Jio ID and Password. There is an option to Signup as a new user, which takes to Employee portal and ask for RIL domain ID. The main thing to notice is that, without a JIO ID, you will not be able to use the service.

Jio Mags screens

Jio Mags has virtually all the Indian magazines and many international magazines available in digital format. You can view and search the magazines based on category and language. You can even set language preference to show only those language magazines which you understand.

You can even select magazines to put into favorites. You can download any magazines to the device and can access that offline. All the downloaded magazines can be accessed from My library section. In order to read full magazines, you need to have an active subscription to Jio Mags, without which you can only see the preview.

As of now I am totally glued to Jio Mags and it is proving a real money saver for me as I read lots of magazines. One thing I noticed that with a bigger screen like 5.5 inches the Jio Mags will have a better experience as compared to my 4.8 inch screen. As I need to do a little zoom which brings scrolling.

Overall Jio Mags is a nice app and it is almost bug free and ready for public launch.


Mobile Apps Help Overcome Lottery Crash


Technical chaos reigned at the UK’s National Lottery headquarters at the start of February as the site’s website went down for the second time in as many days. The first crash took place on February 1 and lasted for 18 hours before Camelot Business Solutions managed to rectify the fault. Despite assurances the problem was a one-off, lottery fans were then left in the dark just two days later when the site went offline once again.

As canny punters scrambled to find the results from the latest national draw, a blank screen bearing the unfortunate news was all that greeted lottery lovers:

“Online services are temporarily unavailable. Sorry about that – we’ll get you back in the game as soon as possible.”

Fortunately, as with almost any other industry, the lottery community is connected to the mobile world and an impending unrest was averted after players managed to check the results via their phones. Over past 12 months, third-party providers have managed to collect, collate and distribute the latest numbers, euromillions jackpot results and winners’ bios through their mobile interfaces.

With the ability to automatically push results through to members’ mobiles as soon they hit the airwaves, these apps have become a convenient way for lottery players to check their numbers without having to go online.

In light of recent mishaps with Camelot’s website, the proliferation of lottery apps has helped streamline the industry and open it up to new demographics. That in turn is helping to make lotteries popular once again. In spite of any technical glitches, and because of mobile lottery apps, the UK’s lotteries have experienced an improvement in recent years. Indeed, 2014 saw Camelot improve its profits after re-launching the National Lottery and adjusting its ticket prices.

Over the coming months, gambling industry experts have predicted that these increases will likely continue as more engage with the lottery using their mobile phones.

Battle of the SmartPhone OS

Now a days there are a plethora of options when you decide to buy a SmartPhone. Some are cheap and some are priced hefty. But when you deice to buy a SmartPhone, price is not the only thing that you need to consider. The most basic thing that every SmartPhone buyer needs to pay attention to is the Platform or the SmartPhone OS. This decides the usability of the Phone. Unlike PC the OS of a SmartPhone can not be changed whenever you wish, therefore OS selection need to be done very carefully.


The operating system not only decides the user  Interface but also which apps you can run or how you can connect with your friends and a lot of other things. It’s like a boutique, where you go to buy clothes u will wear. Some boutique can have the best clothes in town with a wide range and variety, while some offer very few varieties of clothes. Some OS will offer you a wide range of apps to select from, while some offer a very small apps store, some are easily customizable while some are rigid.

Currently there are various Operating Systems available for SmartPhones like iOS(Apple), Android(Open Source and baked by Google), Blackberry OS(RIM), Windows Mobile 8(Microsoft). The basic difference in all these OS comes down to apps and customization. Android is user friendly and easily customizable while Apple’s iOS is rigid but it provides with a very varied and large app store. While these two leads the pack, Blackberry OS and Windows phone falls behind, but still they have their own personalized fun options. With introduction of Lumia range of Phone by Microsoft-Nokia partnership the Windows 8 OS is gaining some traction.

Apple iOS

iOS gives the feeling of elegance with Simplicity. The home screens come with a simple grid of icons which are moveable. The OS provides a very user friendly interface with simple, logical and consistent design. The built-in apps are a delight to use as they are really well designed, facebook and twitter integration is included in the latest version of OS, with the passbook virtual wallet, robust notifications, built-in video chats with other iOS users.

The primary delight to an iOS user will be the usage of the best app store in business. The third-party applications typically come to iOS first, it offers the best selection in books, movies or even the music store is really good. The problem with this iOS is the hardware compatibility, very few hardware can access all iOS 6.1 features. The OS though is very rigid and thus is not open to customization. The Apple’s iOS is no doubt one of the best OS currently present in the market.

Android OS

Android is Open Source and is backed by Google. Being Open Source one can find various flavors of Android like Samsung has customized it’s own version, LG it’s own. Android is the most widely used OS throughout the world, also it is one of the most compatible OS currently present in the market. This OS can be found on every range of phone; from the low-priced to the high-end phones. The most important feature of an android phone is its customization ability. The android interface offers a wide range of customizing options, you can arrange home screens, add live widgets. The Google’s play store, Android’s app store offers a wide range of apps for every mood.With introduction of Google Now in Android 4.1 it has created a new frontier.

Windows 8 Mobile

The erstwhile Windows Mobile has been replaced with Windows 8 Mobile which brings a seamless integration of Desktop and Mobile. Microsoft has partnered with Nokia and produce Lumia line of Windows 8 powered Mobile. Windows 8 has got one of the most creative interface in the market. It has the perfect balance of simplicity and customizability. The home screens consist of live tiles, which can be rearranged according to the user’s preference or priority of people or information he wants in front. It has the windows features and works brilliantly with Microsoft office, Microsoft exchange and Xbox live gaming. The drawback of Windows phone is fewer apps and hardware options, though it has its own apps and games. On the whole it is good, creatively different and fun to use OS.

Blackberry OS

Blackberry is generally regarded as n enterprise platform. So this OS has very less consumer appeal. Because of the market segment it caters to, it is the most secured OS. The most important feature of Blackberry OS is the Communication. The excellent email and Instant Messenger available in this platform are the default choice of corporate users. It is a God’s gift for those who are only interested in messaging and communication. It has a very cool interface which is easy to use and really helpful at times as everything u want is just a swipe away. Even though it has lots of apps of its own it still falls short of the big names in apps that are provided by Android or iOS.

CustomizabilityWhen it comes to customizability the apple’s OS is very rigid and does not offer much options for it.It offers one of the best customizability options and a lot of things are left to the user to customize and use. The windows phone also offers good options for customizability.The options for customizability are very few.
CompatibilityIt is not compatible with most of the devices.It has the best compatibility with hardware in the market and is thus seen with in a lot of phones. It also offers good compatibility with hardware.It is very rigid and is not compatible with most of the devices.
Best featuresOffers a large app store and the built in apps are designed well.Very simple and smooth UI with great customizability options.Very creative interface and a good compatibilityVery good OS for messaging and communication.

Introduction of New OS like Firefox OS and Ubuntu Mobile in recent future is going to make the battle more intense and in future only the fittest with highest flexibility will survive in the long run.

But this is not all they can do these days as many people use their phone less for ringing people and more for all the other things they can do. This can be as simple as checking out what their friends are doing on Facebook; it doesn’t really matter as phones can do nearly anything.

This includes playing games as they are now powerful enough to have stunning graphics while maintaining a good frame rate for smooth gameplay. For many reasons online casinos have become a gaming staple on mobile phones. One type of game has become very popular on mobile phones and that is pokies online; entertaining to play and will keep you happy for hours. With games like these, gains are very easy. The most important reason is because the games can be played by nearly any phone.

But which phones should you be looking at if you want to play the latest phone games on the market? For these games you need to look at the higher end models in order to get the specs you need, but the type of phone is up to you. There are two main kinds of phones that take up most of the market, these are the phones made by Apple and Google.

If it is Apple that you are interested in then look no further than the iPhone 5, it is their latest model and so has all the best technology inside to boot. With a Dual Core 1.2 GHz CPU as well as a very powerful GPU you are sure to get lots of performance out of the phone and it will no doubt keep up for a long time.

You can simply log in to your favourite mobile casino, have a few spins, and then leave; alternatively you can play for as long as you wish.
Roulette is still hugely popular. There is something quite mystic about roulette which the game retains even when played on a tablet rather than at a real casino. It is one of the oldest casino games, which makes it even more remarkable that it is now one of the most popular tablet casino games of all.
Blackjack is the most popular casino type card game for the tablet. It is very accessible, it is reasonably challenging, the better you get at it the more likely you are to win, and it is a mobile casino game with one of the smallest house edges.
Although baccarat is often thought of as being mainly for high stake players, mobile casino baccarat can be played for very modest stakes. High roller games are also available though if that is what you prefer.
You can also use your tablet to play live live casino games at what many consider as the best iPad casinos at Here the experience is somewhat different as there are real dealers who spin the roulette wheel and shuffle and deal the cards. You can also interact with other players and converse directly with the croupiers if you have a question regarding any particular game. Sadly for iPad owners, while you can play at live casinos on your Android and Surface tablets, the lack of Adobe flash means that they are not available (yet) for the iPad.
