Follow this guide to get to ICS: http://huaweig300.co...-your-baseband/

I know its for a custom ROM, but you just need to follow this page, as the steps are exactly the same. Hope this helps you :)

Tried it and it does not work. Trying to do it the offical route to keep my warrenty in taked..

After I have updated to B895 it will not see any updates at all. It will update from B882 all the way up to B985 but then it does not see the update for ICS :unsure:

Any ideas?

Download this force update. (Its the same as the email). http://www.mediafire...u/Force_Update

Its a split archive (because of Mediafire limits, and Solidfiles will not upload!) so put the files in the same folder!! Then extract them, and copy and paste the dload folder to the root (top folder level) of the SD Card.

Verify the extracted update.app with this hash generator. The Hashes are:

What I ended up doing was... Updated to B936 Vodafone OTA update. With the understanding that if i don't get a B952 update ota I could degrade back down to Ginger Bread no sweat and go for a deeper look of why it was not recieving any ota updates.

are you trying to get the vodafone OTA update to ICS? its been removed. so anybody on stock gingerbread can no longer "officially" upgrade to ICS. check the relevant thread on vodafone forums:

http://forum.vodafon...CS/td-p/1519414

So I brought a brand new phone on GB and Vodafone are know not releasing the update to ICS. Glad am not a Vodafone customer because I have to say it is the they the biggest waste of spacer ever as far as customer services and customer updates ...

Plus why would i send it to a repair centre to get it updated Lol Beats me...
