I purchased a Gigaset GL7. It has the Kaios 2.5.3 operating system. My aim is to record phone calls because I am often in the car and I have seen that on kaios (from version 2.5.2) it is possible. I found the product quite OK, it is a German product and has a very good price.
I don't understand very well whether I should root or rely on other "guides". The fact is that I have spent hours and hours testing but I can't. In practice the debug icon appears. With the second code (*#*#0574#*#*) I can enter the log configuration and enable them all. But when I arrive with WEBIDE (ADB OK command) it always says waiting for browser. I open the browser on my phone but nothing happens. Do you have any ideas? Do I do a file transfer with ADB, edit the file and send it back to my phone? If anyone can help me (even for a fee) let me know. Thank you

Did you manage to get ADB connected to the phone (showing as a device)? Which WebIDE client (Firefox 59, Pale Moon 28.6.1, Waterfox Classic etc.) were you using and which apps were you trying to sideload? You should be able to just open Device Settings in WebIDE, search for callrecording.mode and set it to either on (press D-Pad Left to record) or auto.

Hi Minhduc,  with ADB it connects regularly but with the various browsers it is unable to open WEBIDE. Within a few days I'll try to do more "precise" tests (versions of the various browsers) and I'll update you... but it's as if the browser was waiting for something on the phone. I'll update within two/three days. thanks for now

I attach some screen shots (jpeg files) of the problem with web-ide. Then with ADB I tried to read the files from the device and (I attach some.txt files) I wanted to try to find a configuration file in order to modify it. Unfortunately there are many folders that do not allow access. I also attach a log I made of the connection established with ADB

It appears that you were using WebIDE in the latest version of Firefox Nightly and Waterfox (the original one) to connect with the Gigaset GL7. Note that WebIDE on those browsers only works with more recent versions of KaiOS, that is 3.x, and thus is not compatible with KaiOS 2.5.3 running on your phone.

Try using WebIDE in this browser instead: https://classic.waterfox.net and see if it helps.

as I said at the beginning it reports a version error. That's why I had PaleMoon and Firefox Nightly installed. but with these browsers, on the browsers themselves it reports "wait for browser" and does not connect. As far as you know, are there any other "tools" for Windows to access the device's files? (WinScp... or similar...)

Ignore the version error. Per Sideloading and debugging/WebIDE on BananaHackers Wiki, "[...], you may now see a warning header about mismatched build date. You can safely ignore it as WebIDE was mainly designed to support Firefox OS device builds released alongside that Firefox/Pale Moon versions." You've got the phone connected, and it'll show this every time. Now, click on Device Settings by the right pane, search for callrecording.mode entry and switch it to either on (press D-Pad Left to record each time you make a call) or auto.

As I've said above, WebIDE in Firefox Nightly and more recent variants of Waterfox is designed for newer B2G versions found in KaiOS 3, and not KaiOS 2.5.3.

If you're still bothered by the warning, there's a guide to use a command-line tool called gdeploy in another BananaHackers Wiki page.
