It seems that the time zone can be fixed in the firmware somehow. On 4pda they just released a firmware in which time zone is adjusted +3 GMT (Moscow).

Sure, NFC is working from first fimrware, there are no problems. You can copy the UID of any unencrypted NFC tag to your Band. It can not copy the content of a NFC tag, only the UID.

It was not working for me, it recognized the tag, but that was it. I could not save it. Now it did and transfer it to the band.

How to flash a Custom Firmware / Resources ?
If you have an update in the Hey Plus Application, isn't necessary do the Step 1 !


Step 1
★ You need have "USB Debugging" option enabled in the "Developer options" of your phone and be Rooted !
★ If you use Windows, you need install adb drivers.
★ If you use Ubuntu OS, you need open terminal and write "sudo apt-get install adb".

★ Open "cmd" / Terminal :
Windows : Win+R -> Write "cmd" -> Tap on "Enter".
Go in your "adb" folder : Write "cd ../../adb/" for me.
Ubuntu : Ctrl+Alt+T -> Write "sudo apt-get install adb".

★ In the "cmd" or the "Terminal", tap "adb shell".
★ You will have :

* daemon not running. starting it now at tcp:xxx *
* daemon started successfully *
phoneName:/ $


★ Tap "su" (Your phone will maybe ask something, accept).
★ Now you have :

phoneName:/ #

★ Tap "am start -n com.ryeex.groot/com.ryeex.groot.developer.DeveloperActivity"
★ The Hey Plus Developer page will be opened on your phone.
Also you will have :

Starting: Intent { cmp=com.ryeex.groot/.developer.DeveloperActivity }

★ Now you can close "cmd" / Terminal. Write "exit" for exit the shell mode, and "exit" again for close "cmd" / Terminal.
★ On your phone, tap on "Debugging Tools" -> "Restore".
★ Tap on "Restart".
★ Tap on the back button of your phone for return at the Hey Plus Application homescreen.
★ After the restart, synchronize your data and you will have Firmware version 0.6.40.

Not be worried ! Only the Firmware version is modified, not the Firmware :).
Now you can go to the
Step 2.
★ Install Hey Plus - Flash (link in the thread).


Step 2
★ Open the Hey Plus Application.
★ Go in "Settings" -> "Firmware version".
★ Turn off your Bluetooth.
★ Start the update (files will be downloaded, and you will have error message with "Cancel" and "Retry" buttons).
★ Copy the Custom Firmware (file "1") (and the Custom Resource (file "0")) in "Internal Storage -> Android -> data -> com.ryeex.groot -> cache -> firmware -> *SmartBand ID* -> *Firmware version*.
★ Turn on your Bluetooth.
★ Return in the Hey Plus Application and tap on "Retry" button.
★ Wait. After flash, the SmartBand will reboot.
★ If you use Hey Plus - Flash, the Application will say "Failed", tap on "Cancel".
★ Enjoy :).

Just a small critique @MagicalUnicorn.

Some parts are still not translated and these are
Under Sport the Run and submenu. And the Start/Stop/Pause (Green/Red/Orange) buttons in both Run/Treadmill along with their descriptions
Under Card the description is still Chinese
Under Alipay description and buttons still in Chinese
Under Settings the Reboot and Reset Confirmation button is in Chinese

Can you please translate in the newer version?
