How to Debrand Orange Barcelona/Huawei Boulder

17 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hello everyone, this will get rid of the nasty orange software and return you with proper android NO orange branding or Apps.

Firstly connect your phone via USB

Go to (https://www.dropbox.com/s/todbirhlczkuni3) and download the zip file ending (%28Kenya Normal%29.rar) if not sure see attached picture.

Once the file has downloaded extract the zip file and copy the DLOAD file to the root of your sdcard.

Once its copied to your sdcard switch off the phone.

Remove the battery for Approx 20 seconds and replace the battery.

Now hold RED END CALL KEY & VOLUME + & POWER until the update screen pops up,

The update should take approx 2 minutes.

Once your phone restarts you will be welcomed by the Huawei boot logo instead of the orange logo.

Any problems feel free to contact me

Hi - Possibly a stupid question

if I want to both unlock the phone from Orange and debrand it with this ROM, which do I do first, or doesn't it matter?

I know you can unlock with this rom installed if you are using an unlock code as I have done it myself , but I would recommend the CM7 rom project Sarah though as it is much faster but not sure if you can unlock whither it installed, but don't see why you wouldn't be able 2 as I believe the simlock has nothing to do with the rom, but I may be wrong???

@DannyGoodwinn

The link for the zip file is broken. Could you please add a link from Mediafire, I am unsure whether the link the other guy is giving (above) is safe.

Also, how would you recommend unlocking this handset for free?

Thank You, I know this thread has been inactive for a while but can you help?
