Ascend G510-0100 UK Vodafone - OTA update error

11 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hi, have recently bought a UK G510 - prompted me for online software update but fails each time.

Download and click install - reboots to Recovery & says "OTA update", then "Installation aborted" retruns to recovery menu and have to reboot. Has to re-donwload the 142Mb update each time I try.......

 

How do I download the update and "update via SD card" as prompted by the system update tool ?

 

Current version = G510-0100V100R001C02B171

New version = G510-0100V100R001C02B195 (G510-0100_Vodafone_B195)

 

It's Vodafone branded bought from Asda.

Am running with OVIVO SIM (which uses Vodafone network) - is this the problem ?

Is it worth going into a VF store ?

 

Thanks in advance

 

EDIT - sorry forgot to add - not interested in rooting or custom ROM - happy with stock with different launcher etc. Just want latest stock image.

Same error for me also.

 

Also tried using TWRP but that give me a verification of the file error.

 

Any help on doing this update.

tonyb - sorry only just seen this - did not get an alert for some reason.

In a way comforting that someone else has same issue - VFone are not interested in helping - suggested via warranty repair !!??

What network are you on ?

Was going to try a VF PAYG SIm to see if that helps, but not sure if worth it...........

 

Anyone else any ideas ??

After you download the firmware update, select the option to install it later. Go to your File Manager and locate a folder called HwOUC, the update is in that folder.

Create a folder called dload in the root of your Memory Card and move the firmware update from HwOUC to it.

(Don't turn your phone off before moving the update, or it'll delete itself again.)

Go to the phone settings and turn the Fast Boot option off, if it's on.

Finally, turn your phone off and press both volume buttons AND the power button at the same time to start the update process.

The update should install that way. Good Luck.

Hi SS - thanks for your post. Is this from personal experience ?

Tried all the above - when restarting will buttons depressed - black screen initially, followed by solid purple screen. No messages, nothing.........

Had to remove battery to reboot - no upgrade has happened.

Any ideas ?

Vodafone are telling me they will do it but as warranty repair so send off for a week or so ............. not best pleased at that as seen reports on other forums of this update installing fine.

You need to unzip the zip file and move the dload folder inside it to the root of your memory stick.

If you have ireland vodafone try install this G510-0100.Android4.1.Emotion_UI.V100R001C02B193.Ireland-VDF.05011NGU . After that try B195.

here is link http://camorrahgpl.com/user/huawei/Rom/G510-0100.Android4.1.Emotion_UI.V100R001C02B193.Ireland-VDF.05011NGU.zip

from my server .This is full stock rom not update .

I'm used both and i think so B193 is better battery .

UPDATE - I must have had a dodgy handset.

Developed a hardware fault with loose battery connections - swapped out at ASDA for another. This one had completely different VF apps on it - got it home & did update & worked fine first time.

VF don't seem to be very knowledgable on these handsets - hopefully this helps someone.
