Play for a few days to learn & make sure the phone is good, then if you like do these:
Dezmen ROM, this ROM it is best, get 3rd release of 1.2 Final:
but before installing the ROM, first you need to install MTK6589 Drivers on your PC & get root & get
SP-Flashtool. CWM or TWRP for future fast flashing ofROM Update
For future easy ROM upgrades you need root, mtk6589 drivers, MTK flashtools, a good CWM & I recommend after CWM to get TWRP
1 minute easy initial root quick & MTK6589 Drivers:
SP-Flashtool, try to get latest one, you only need it once, after installing it once & then CWM, you can use CWM (reboot recovery) to quickly flash future ROMs
latest flashtool in my link here (only need spflash, not rest of files):
Also some report problems with Windows 8 so best to try with Windows7. You might have to register on 4shared for free first below. In his PDF instructions where he says keep volume-down (V), it did not work for me but worked without holding volume down. His package installs English (not Chinese) CWM.

Now you can flash Dezmen's ROM upgrades in a couple of minutes with CWM. Better than CWM is his TWRP (CWM shell + more commands):
Before flashing any ROM in future with CWM or TWRP, wipe cache & Dalvik cache. Factory Reset (wipes your data, backup first) only is needed when flashing the new ROM (Dezmen) for the first time, it's not necessary when he releases future versions of his ROM.
