Huawei Ascend G500 Pro / U8836D

Recommended Posts


I've got hold of a Huawei Ascend G500 Pro otherwise known as the U8836D.

I'm kind of a dual sim fan and have tried the HTC Desire V /T328W which would be great if it wasn't so slow!

I kind of liked the idea as it is a dual core, front camera and larger battery than the Acer Liquid Gallant Duo, although it lacks the compass.

Of course it was released in China - but has a almost stock version of ICS 4.04 with English as standard, but no Google framework/apps/play store although it is on the Google play list of devices.

I have tried the Bin4ry root method - which appears to work - but when I run root explorer it says it does not have superuser rights!

Has anyone else got one or any tips/ideas for getting root? I would like to try putting the Google framework stuff on to it

I know a certain supplier in China will eventually develop a ROM and root etc but I would like to add the google stuff to the pretty much stock rom.

Although I've used android for a while and used to IT I'm pretty new to modding so treat me gently!!
