how? care to share?
Is there a specific problem you have encountered? The process I went through was quite lengthy and I ran into problems that were specific to me so I'd rather not share meaningless procedures lol

Nice review but the last post is anti climax. Nevertheless it showed further confidence building in MIC phones and I hope that my Umi X2 Turbo will not disappoint too.

I actually managed to install the play store through the chinese store but it would close the moment I opened it. Apparently the only way to fix it is to get CWM or TWRP on the phone and flashing the gapps package which include the google services framework onto the phone as the chinese recovery can't flash the package.

In order to do that I had to create a scatter map for the phone using MTK droid tools then use SP flash tools to rip the rom from the phone and then using MTK droid tools again to generate a CWM based on the ripped rom. Flash the CWM ontp the phone and then install gapps package to get the google stuff working.

Did you A830 come with google play installed?

Btw I only ran into this problem because I ordered my phone directly from taobao. If you order from an english reseller like antelife.com the phone comes with play store preinstalled!

Antelife's youtube video showed play store installed and google services running Antelife.com-------Xiaocai G6 Quad Core MTK6589 HD IPS Screen 1G/4G 13 MP Camera Dual SIM 3G - YouTube.

No idea about aliexpress but I would assume the same since they cater to the international market. If it doesn't you can always follow the guides online to install it. I was stuck for so long only because I couldn't figure out the problem which was actually Windows 8! You need to follow this to install the unsigned MTK VCOM Drivers:

How to disable driver signing requirement in Windows 8

I followed option 1.

Sorry I was thinking of cancelling the order but they sent me an email saying that it was shipped.
I didn't mention that I wanted to sell it.
