i bought a new phone on aliexpress, it is working very well for a really cheap phone.
the android version is 4.2.9 and it is lacking some features.
most important, it doesnt have version update in settings.
also, i downloaded some weather widgets from the appstore but they dont appear as widgets and dont appear on the widget page in apps.
i have downloaded a keyboard but googles keyboard keeps terning it off and it is not optional to tern googles keyboard off.
i really need help
is the 4.2.9 really an android version or is it also a Chinese copy?
how can i replace this version?
do i have to root the device for all this?
how dangerous is rooting myself if i dont really know what i am doing? (i dont have any warranty, so this isnt the issue)
thank you all very much!
