    • At least for the GV08, once you have installed the apps by going to the file manager and clicking on each one and receiving a “Done” message. YOU MUST GO INTO THE SETTINGS AND “Restore Settings”. It will show up after your do “Restore Settings” that shortcuts in the Menu will appear.

      Your Welcome.

      • I had facebook and whats app preinstalled they just needed the correct APN settings but they are not actually apps just web browser shortcuts.

        I’ve been trying to find a firmware to mod it all the ones that work have either no touchscreen or has weird pixels at the bottom of the screen.

        This is all the information i can find for my watch:

        MCU SW: Q9_61D_240_SWD_EU_SH_NEW_20160906
        Serial No: 01234567 ( Not suprised by this… )
        BBChip: MTK6261
        DSP Code: 2000.00.00
        DSP Patch: 1.0
        MS Board: MTK61D_BTDIALER_11C_HW
        Build No. 2019/09/06 20:42

        Notice the build date i suspect the programmer had to manually type this maybe he/she put a 9 instead of a 6.

        • Hello Daniel,
          You can download the Facebook.vxp app from the above downloads section and it works perfectly. Regarding WhatsApp there is no application available as of now. Regarding the preinstalled Facebook and WhatsApp they are useless and doesn’t work at all.
          It is difficult to find the correct modded firmware for the watch because there are many variants of DZ09 available in the market and this is the reason why some firmware’s brick the touchscreen and some color production etc.
