If it's stock a gb update should work, or middle package to ics.

Which flash broke it? Which ver of cwm?

USB out. Hold volume down, then hold power as well. After 4 secs phone should vibrate. Let go of power, keep holding down for about 15 seconds. Phone should stick on logo. THEN connect to PC. You should be able to see it in adb.

hi mate , all is well that ends well .

i managed to buy a SD card adapter today and popped my middle package on and then re flashed b895 back on and the phone sprang back in to action .

i have also now , unlocked my boot loader and rooted and installed pauls gr2 rom.

so back to the start now and all i need to do is overclock it and im a happy man .

just out of interest what kernel works best for overclocking on gingerbread .

i have had a scout and all seems to be pointing to ics at the moment.

thanks for the advice last night as well.

Overclocking kernel for GingerBread http://www.modaco.co...or-gingerbread/

I've been using it for over a month now with no problems. 1228 is highest stable speed for me. That's near enough a 25% overclock and the difference is noticeable.

Btw, if running Gr2 I advise removing the stock Huawei locker (PotterUnlock) as there is a problem which can cause the boot process to screw up if you have any messages waiting and Potterunlock tries to tell you. This issue is not present in current GB ROMs so you could probably also update Potterunlock manually but I just deleted it. Other than that I think Gr2 with overclock and Holo Launcher is just so good I'm not really missing ICS. You might also want to remove or freeze all the Vodafone bloat as well unless you really want it.

That looks good hog. I liked holo on gingerbread. I prefer the ics gapps so really upgraded for them. Tho I'm on 944 and it's pretty good apart from struggling with some heavier multitasking, and I don't play games. Once Daz finishes cm9 or 10 upgrading will be a must. Well, if your games are supported!

hmmm ok will give it some thought , i have been back on gr2 for a day now and the first thing i have noticed is that it very very stable and that there is no lagf at all.

i have installed a OC kernel as well , using like you 1228 on performance and noop

i would agree 25% does come with a difference and that the phone feels snappy and light. i think that once ICS goes official in the uk that i might go back.
