problem with installing update

22 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hello, i am trying to install rom into my phone and i have problem doing it... i do everything like huaweig300.com guide says, but i am stuck at baseband stuff, my baseband is 109808, so i downloaded that B952 update, put dload folder from zip to sd card, unplug the phone, and then i try to update it via settings>storage>update via sd card(something like that), everything seems fine and then phone restarts and instead of installing update it just restarts and boots up like just after ordinary restart... no update, nothing, still stuck with mine 109808 and B885 GB

EDIT: there are no errors at all, just restarts and thats all

EDIT: maybe i should do force update? will it brick the phone or not? in the official guide with B952 update there is written that i should have at least B934 to do this update

EDIT: well got pink screen with force update... maybe i should try internal memory? btw phone works after restart

EDIT: ok not working too... so any suggestions how can i upgrade to ICS from B885, baseband 109808? huaweig300.com guide didn't helped(did exactly step by step, did imei backup and next step was to update according to baseband copied update and it don't want to install)

Try to download it again, and also do a factory reset on the phone too (Settings -> Backup and Reset -> Factory Data Reset -> Reset phone)

Also try mounting USB storage after the factory reset and formatting the internal and external storage, by right clicking the phone memory and going format and click all the options for both the phone and the sd card

I'll try to upload it somewere tonight (I'm at work and don't have full internet acces), try and save every update.app file you get your hands on, because you never know when you might need it.

Here you go: https://drive.google...OTA&usp=sharing

Let me know if you have any problems downloading.

BTW: this is B895, one is an archive containig the update, and the other is the update file itself.

downloaded succesfully, but this is just hilarious... even GB update gives me pink screen, or restarts via sd card...

maybe i need B892? i checked UK B885 whole version number and it matches, so i guess other UK updates will work fine for me, but i need all of them then

Try force update, put it in the dload folder, shut down phone, pull battery for 10-15 seconds, put battery back on and press volume down, volume up and power at the same time.

Update to B9XX, root it, unlock bootloader, install CWM, make a CWM Backup and then flash any custom ROM you find here, you have a wide variety from which to chose...

well the problem is in first part, can't update it for now i am with B885 (in my country i can't update the phone via OTA, even tried that trick with framework...) and somehow i need to update to B9XX manually... if B895 is not working so i guess i need B892(heard people mostly get this update, then somekind of small one and ics)

P.S. talked with someone from huawei and they told me to talk with local service for huawei, so i talked with them too and they said that i should get the update around the end of november... and now it is april... after that time they don't answer me...
