  1. Hi, I have an Oukitel K10 and updated to 8.1 following the instructions, that are the same posted by Oukitel itself. Everything ran OK, and the IMEI were written as well. But, even after this, the chinese red message does not go away from the screen. I did a factory reset and the message is still there. I wrote to Oukitel but did not have answer yet. Can you help me to erase the message?

    1. If the Chinese message is still there then the IMEI was not written properly. Please try to write the IMEI again.

      1. Thanks for your return, but I rewrote it successfully twice, the correct numbers are shown in the IMEI information of the set, but I still have the chinese message.

        1. As per the OUKITEL, If you are getting the Chinese message error, which means either IMEI is missing or not written properly.

          But As you said, you have already written IMEI twice but the Chinese message is still there. So I think, you can try to re-update your smartphone by following all the three steps.

          And, Did you get the ‘PASS’ message after writing the IMEI?

          1. Yes, I got the PASS message. I will re-update again, as you sugest. I keep asking myself, because I do not get any answer from Oukitel . And why Oukitel does note, simply, deliver an OTA update. I just keep this phone because it is a good set and the battery is a bless.

    2. Where could i find the Instructions, posted by Oukitel itself? I couldnt find any Informations about Oreo on K10 at the official Oukitel Homepage.

      1. Some users were facing Camera issue after OREO update on K10 so they have removed Oreo for K10 from the official website.

  2. After installing the Oreo update, the signal strength of the phone is very bad. On the hardware, however, nothing has changed. Are there software settings that can change the signal strength?
