Use middle package, flash B882, upgrade to B885 OTA and say that ever since you got B885 you've had the issues. Also point out the lack of notification toggles and vodafone apps. Should be enough. What I'm doing anyway. The guy in Vodafone accepted all that :3

phew lets hope so *fingers crossed*...hopefully ill get a replacement,if not ill just install B926 and go back to Infusion ^_^

worst that can happen is they say no

Good News just used the phone since i flashed sebs zip and then the OTA update..the camera doesn't work and therefore i can blame the issue on their update and say it broke my phone.

I will update you guys tomorrow ,if i am successful or not...hopefully they're in a very understanding mood

SUCCESS!!!!.....I think

Went in store,told the the camera stopped working and the contacts cant be restored and i also pointed out the lack of notification toggles.

The guy sent it off for repair(which should take max. 2 weeks he said...hopefully not though ^_^ )

Now im just going to keep checking the progress on the website, and bug the with emails ;)

P.S. If you're planning to go in-store to return or ask for a repair, makes sure you take every single piece of paper work you were given(receipts,emails and leaflets) ....the guy at store said it makes their job easier and saves you the hassle.

yh you just report that the wifi is the main fault and then there is a bit where the store can add more info on the problems....as long as you have all your paperwork, everything should be straight forward.

P.S. not point installing the update.app for the vendor stuff,just tell the the phone randomly reset itself (i said that was the 3rd time) and you'll be fine

Good Luck

there is no way to get the voda app and the toggles back unless ou have a back up....of the original stock rom

if you were running ics,then we are in the same situation... i managed to get to B882 then updated to B885 like 5 times (thought i was doing something wrong but the vendor.app wasnt even in the rom i downloaded fro huawei-they get added by the vendor sadly)

I just gave up and blamed it on the random resets... :)

I flashed the B882.zip then update to B885 via OTA update but i couldn't update to B892 through OTA or the Update zip(No voda apps so the update.zip couldn't find any trace of Vodafone stuff so the update just failed)

I dont htink it has the vendor file...just the dload folder (all the stock roms on the huawei website dont seem to have the vendor files for some reason)

best way is just to leave it that i think , trying to fix it might actually make it worse. :ph34r:

yes but then i downgraded back to B882 to get all the latest updates and wait for ICS but i downgraded and the phone went bezerk(wouldn't let me update to B892 via OTA or force the update.zip) and then i realised i had broken the phone completely when notifications toggles weren't there,my contacts wouldn't restore from a .vcf back up and the camera stopped working :wacko:

The camera issue is confusing but the lack of toggles is what you get if you flash without the vendor file. No mystery there. You should have been able to restore your pre ICS upgrade backup after the downgrade and everything including toggles would have been fine. If you didn't have one then that's a mistake!

i had a back up atomic mod but i didn't have one for B882/5 so i was kinda f***ed :( ...but apart from that everything else works but i couldn't upgrade to B892 after i flashed the update on B882 to B885,so i was stuck with a brokenish B885..so i went to the Voda store to get it fixed and i checked the status online but it hasn't arrived at their tech factory(whatever the call it) <_<

What's needed is for someone to upload a clean CWM flashable Vodafone stock B892 complete with the vendor bit. Just wondering why you didn't just restore your backup of Atomicmod after downgrade?
