You have to unlock the bootloader and root again. Check step 2 here:

Yes, I did the original with Paul's method but I'll have a play with this after my dinner. Where do you suggest I upload the B936 zip file to? I haven't got any upload subs anywhere.

I heard that if you remove the vodafone apps you will stop getting OTA updates. I'm pretty sure it happened to me when I was on B892 too.

As far as I know, the update will fail if one of the Huawei or Vodafone provided apps is missing, but the update will be offered.

^^ use rapidshare...its better then most sites

I don't like the offer stuff you appear to have to sign up to to get free uploads!

Blown it. Used unlockbootloader, and indeed the phone was rooted OK, confimed by titanium. But then did the step to unlock the boot loader and now can't get any combination of buttons to start the phone.The update must have modded the boot loader...

Can someone copy it off their phone to a PC before updating their phone please?

assuming it ever gets to my device, where would the download be?

which unlocker did you use, I think there are 2 for gb and ics boot loader. Did you try a battery pull?

The one downloaded from step 2 here:http://www.modaco.com/topic/355583-guide-how-to-install-and-root-ics-403-on-the-g300-b926hspa11/

which is said to be used after the ICS update. Which I had done...

Yes, battery pulled, I'll try leaving it out for some time but don't hold out much hope. I'm charging my little old Huawei... ICS was working fine until that last step. Just don't attempt to unlock the bootloader using that application, rooting's OK.

Have you tried the force update method or will it not turn on at all? Could always return to vodafone, and say it broke updating to the latest ics which isn't really a lie.

I got the phone from UK but I don't live there.

I had B892 stock until today, when I downloaded B895 from the rapidshare link in this thread.

I've successfully updated via dload folder, then I immediately received the notification to update via OTA.

I downloaded the file and copied it to my pc.

It won't turn on at all, as you'd expect if they've modded the boot loader and that unlock application is now patching the wrong places in it...

Bought it from Tesco some months ago. Pity. it was a nice phone!

You can copy the file to PC, take what you need off the SD card and wipe the rest. Apps are not transferred from gb to ics so take music, pics and videos off the SD card and wipe.

A gb app will generally force close if you try to reinstall a backup to ics.
