[RECOVERY] : ClockworkMod Recovery for Orange Barcelona/Huawei U8350

the SIMlock lives in the NVRAM, in an area that none of the update process touches.

But then how could they get rid of the simlock with the Kenya update, above in the thread? Is that all BS?

Hi, I have just attempted this on my U8350, adb method. Now it does not boot .. any ideas how I can get out of this?

thanks!

Please find attached *MY* build of the latest version of Koush's ClockworkMod Recovery for the Orange Barcelona/Huawei U8350. It is not officially supported by Koush, please do not bother him with support questions for this build.

I have tested it as much as I can, but I'm always open to any more constructive feedback. Please see one post down for a change log for THIS build.

To install:

  • Recovery Manager
    • Download the img file to your SD card, and then you can use the
    Recovery Manager application to install your recovery, note your device must be rooted to run Recovery Manager.

    ADB method
    • Download the support files and unzip them to your PC.
    • Place the files along with the recovery img file into a directory.
    • From a command prompt cd into that directory and type the following commands:
      adb push psneuter /data/local/
      
      adb shell chmod 04775 /data/local/psneuter
      
      adb shell /data/local/psneuter
      
      adb push flash_image /data/local/
      
      adb shell chmod 04775 /data/local/flash_image
      
      adb push recovery-clockwork-4.0.1.4-u8350.img /sdcard/
      
      adb shell /data/local/flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-clockwork-4.0.1.4-u8350.img
      
      adb reboot recovery

    • When this finishes, you device should reboot into ClockworkMod Reovery


      <li>fastboot method
      • Unplug the USB cable, turn off your device and take out the battery
      • Replace the battery and turn the device on holding the 'Power' & 'volume down' key. The device will stay at the 'egg timer' screen.
      • Plug the device into the PC.
      • From a command prompt run 'fastboot flash recovery <filename>.img'
      • When this finishes, from the command prompt run 'fastboot reboot'

        <li>update.zip method
        • If you have a previous version or another recovery install, install the update.zip and restart your device.

          How to Enter recovery mode:
          • restart your device holding down the 'power', 'volume up' & 'Call (green)' keys
          • Use the Recovery Manager application to Reboot into Recovery
          • if you have ADB configured type 'adb reboot recovery' from the command line.

hi Sebastian404,

did you happen to have time to look at my romdump?

Recovery is also not working for misterwoo, so there might indeed be a new firmware version with different recovery behaviour on the market.

edit: the phone is able to boot into software upgrade mode, but I do not think that that will help?

I don't think I ever said that there was a way to soft remove the simlock. I paid a website referred to on the forums. After I did the unlock I then did the ROM change to Kenya and it held. Sebastian was trying for a soft unlock but didn't get anywhere. Wife now uses the phone so I'm not allowed to play with it. ;)

Perhaps not explicitly, but the sequence of messages really seemed to indicate it.

<http://goo.gl/obstB>

"Does this mean it's now SIM-unlocked..? (ie. phone works with other SIM cards, not just Orange UK)"

"No, but it will be locked to a Kenya Network provider"

Then immediately after that:

<http://goo.gl/cmcjg>

"I have unlocked my Barcelona and I am using the Kenya Normal ROM"

That's what bugged me. You didn't say anywhere you had used DC-unlocker to unlock!

Anyway, the NVRAM comment sort of clarified everything...

I renew my thanks for all the info you've provided guys.

MR

You should be able to put the Kenya rom on with the software upgrade mode.

Are you able to issue fastboot commands at all?

no, fastboot is waiting for the device.

adb is working, but the adb method to install recovery is not.

My wife owns the Sprint Huawei Express, which looks to be a CDMA variant of the Boulder (U8350). I have root access, and was wondering if you could direct me in the right direction for modifying this recovery to work on this device.

Thanks in advance.

1) Are you able to start the phone in fastboot mode at all? (HUAWEI image stays displayed) (that is, regardless of the fastboot prompt working)

2) If yes to (1) - have you installed the additional fastboot drivers on your machine?

It looks like only one live topic about U8350

I bought one branded(named "MTS Pro"(belarus)) few days ago, and try to explore another firmware.

stock U8350 V100R001C00B626SP01 work good for me.

I try several times to flash"[ROM] : de-branded ROM for Orange Barcelona/Huawei U8350 [froyo]"

but "radio" broken in this rom.

return to stock U8350 V100R001C00B626SP01 fix it

and else one thing

information about enter it special modes from Sebastian404 blog not valid for my phone

for my U8350:

recovery: "green button"+volume_up+power

flash firmware from dload: "red button"+volume_UP+power

fastboot: "red button"+volume_UP+power

something like this....
