    Not at all... it will still resist scratching more so than ordinary glass. But don't expect it to be unscratchable.
    Just like watches, some are water resistant, so a quick dip will be fine. Whilst others are waterproof and can be immersed for lengthier periods and to greater depths.

    Apps will continue to work regardless of where they are installed. Changing the default storage just means that the new location is where apps will now be installed (unless they only work from internal then they will be installed there)

    Scratch resistant will resist scratching but will be damaged by objects harder than itself. ie: glass will be resistant to being scratched by steel but not by diamond.
    Scratch proof would indicate being unable to be scratched by anything.. which would need to be harder than diamond. Not possible.

    As they ship in the UK with B171 as standard AFIK that is what you should have originally had...

    I think I now know what you mean thanks to Andy.. maybe... have you un zipped (unrar) the file first. for this you would need "winrar" to unzip it then copy the dload folder itself to the sdcard. you could use a file explorer such as "ES file explorer" to un rar the file directly on the phone. then make sure to copy the dload folder to the root of the card.

    The steps we've done for root don't require the bootloader unlock... there is a seperate set of instructions for root and boot...
    I don't know what Voxpop2011 is doing wrong to get a pinkscreen when trying to run the update.app..

    You need to start the phone holding down the power + vol up and vol down ... all three buttons. the phone should then run the update file.

    So after you have turned off the phone, (and if not disabled fastboot removed the battery for a few seconds) You then restart the phone holding down the power up vol and down vol you get the huawei logo not the pink loading line that indicates the phone is accessing the update file. Which you cave copied to the sd card inside the dload folder.

    Try the B170: http://www.solidfile...m/d/8bbd3b75e1/ instead.. that may work for you.

    I just followed these steps below.. you don't need the B173 boot.img..
    1) Install the G510 drivers on your computer: http://www.solidfile...m/d/c22779a3f2/

    2) Install the Unlock Root 3.1 on your computer: http://www.solidfile...m/d/53794302f9/

    3) Install the boot.img Update.app with the B165: http://www.solidfile...m/d/c32cf84149/ in the usual way from SD card. (start phone holding power, vol up and vol down.)

    Boot.img ** If the B165 does not work well, try the B170: http://www.solidfile...m/d/8bbd3b75e1/

    5) Start the phone, go to "Settings> Development" and activate the "USB debugging".

    6) Connect your phone to your computer and run the program Unlock Root. When the phone is detected, click "ROOT". When finished close the program, unplug the cable and restart the phone
