New OTA Update B952 announced by Vodafone for 28/11/12

Do I have to update to B936 in order to get B952?

Given that this latest update is a lot smaller than the update to B936, I'd say the answer is obviously yes. There's no way this update contains both the B936 update and the update from B936 to B952.

The over-the-AIRupdate this morning didn't work. "image signature verify fail". This after I upgraded to official ICS last week. Pressing "2volbuttons" method of install fails about 1/4 way through the install "Update failed". Reading through this thread now to work out how to recover from this...

Ok, I've got my sdcard in a samsung galaxy tab2 (took a while to find somebody with a micro sdcard reader!). I think I have to repalce the dload directory with a new file. But what? Is B936 the official ICS? EDIT. sorry - just saw the post above. Edited by Mobilerab

I had the same issue of being unable to update from GB to ICS but eventually forced it through somehow. Anybody know why this happens? Seems like it is not happening with everybody. I am trying out the stock recovery image way, failed in my first attempt because i do not have the android SDK installed.

adb shell


su


dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p12 of=/sdcard/system.img

In my attempts to force the update one way or another and possibly messing up the fast boot way of using stock CWM, i now cannot boot into the phone or recovery. I get this error:

"Your appboot image may have an incorrect signature.

Please update your image to a Signature official one.

You can remove battery for power down."

Trying to follow a post by someone else who had the same problem, but having no luck as of yet so if anybody could help me, I would appreciate it :(

UPDATE wont root >.<

Root is probably required. What method are you trying?

Edit: A simple copy of the system directory might be easier for Cyda. Just wasn't sure if permissions etc might be an issue. Root also required for that.

^ I'm in the same boat (incorrect signature.) From another post "try forcing the update by powering off, removing battery for 5 seconds then powering up holding both volume keys.

If that doesn't work you can try the IMEI method."

Anybody got a pointer to "the IMEI method" Had a look for "stock ROMs" as it looks like I may need one. Couldn't find much except B927. Any good?

Stop using the Chrome test page to check for hardware acceleration :angry: it is totally irrelevant to what you're looking for.

Either will do me. :)

Reflash CWM via fastboot and either roll back to a previous nandroid or re-install a rom via cwm.

@ all those trying to force the update; just wait until Aradalienz has uploaded a system image and I have had time to make & upload a cwm zip. It will save you a load of hassle.

Has anyone reported it breaks things? I've only seen reports that the update wouldn't install.In fact, I've seen no reports from anyone who has actually installed the update! (I would except I can't get it to offer me it again)
Like I said earlier this is not something to rush into as it is breaking more things than it is fixing and I am sure one of the developers will base their next updated rom on this release if it has anything to offer that is! :P or Cyda will get the time to make a CWM zipped version that takes all the pain out of it for us all...

How do I reflash via fastboot? I have some old CWM folders with fastboot-windows files but it stays on waiting for phone message. As with the other post, when I press power and vol+/-, it takes me to the screen with the message about the incorrect signature. If I press power and volume + and -, it would take me to a pink screen. This was with different files in the dload folder, including the latest CWM, the R3 ICS that Daz released. However, using the middle package and the other update.app in that zip from Huawei would take me to update but fail on both occasions.

Not sure if it would help but I think the problem was due to me using an old CWM Easy Installer to install the stock CWM somebody posted a link to on this page. I changed the .bat file to point to that .img file rather than the original .img it was meant to. Hope that makes sense. Also, after doing that I was able to reboot into the old recovery and install the latest OTA update released today successfully. But when I rebooted the signature error started.

Thanks but I cannot boot "signature verify fail" when I do the voda update. I can get access to my sdcard via a reader and I cannot find my 5irom directory (I'm sure I did one last week). Oh well, guess I will try "Reflash CWM via fastboot" as said above. Or http://www.modaco.co...ms-from-huawei/

EDIT: but even get "signature error" holding the 'Power' & 'volume down' key. !?

EDIT2: wihtout the sdcard I get the purple screen (of death!?)

No, that probably won't work.

Doesn't this work via cmd? {you'll need adb setup for this to work)


adb shell

su

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p12 of=/sdcard/system.img

If you can't so it that way, make a nandroid backup with CWM and upload the system partition backup.

I don't want to get in the way but is it possible to get the update .app for B952?

There isn't one, thats why we are needing a system dump. Someone posted the update.zip a page or so back but it is a patch rather than a full update.app.
