This is my dc unlocker output from an old Y300 phone notice it shows bootloader status and code. it did the same for my G510 Also the wifi and BT mac addresses should be slightly diferenf from each other.
Perhaps the main PCB has been changed. It won't let you fastboot flash a recovery unless the bootloader is unlocked first.
Also did the phone have an OTA update? This would explain why it won't take the b170 update.app you're trying to flash. Maybe try here: http://emui.huawei.com/en/plugin.php?id=unlock&mod=detail (doesn't have G510-100 listed so perhaps Y300-100, G510-010 or G510-200 might work) Here is link to Huawei_Ascend_G510-0100_V100R001C224B199CUSTC123D001_Switzerland.zip: https://mega.nz/#!SQJHyLSa!fFZ0ooiZgL2hMp65j7emu1m-OVqS3OaNscUFNJ0yxQs (in case you didnt find it)
That's great news! I've seen a number of older posts where other people have made the same mistake. There should be some kind of safety feature in the phone to stop this happening. In glad the problem is finally sorted.
You were almost at my solution :) Here is link for CanadaBell baseband zip: https://mega.nz/#!XZQW0RhT!QLv6xzLTn166b80wD7vkX5Nq_TygyFV6UQ5Ilv-LfBk Here is link for baseband + /cust zip: https://mega.nz/#!2cwghCrA!7uuUlN1nILJZl7iNiaEdJgMe8uX7Nhz5-gJ494pPlwk Here is link for Full CanadaBell 151 B196 zip: https://mega.nz/#!rdQh1DiL!IqejW4MZmHu7u1wfmgyGrJVJ_STKof-hrpdaI98KMyU (this one will replace your custom recovery with stock recovery) Here is link for Canada BB196 combined with the B209 system update https://mega.nz/#!SYpx1L4I!Ts1696DwUzBQIG_OXLH6ZmvcVmWwZL7WyJ294ke2wjQ (Also replaces your custom recovery and may not work correctly as i can't test) Flash with custom recovery(twrp 188.8.131.52 recomended) Good luck and i hope this helps.
Try this. Other phone NEEDS to be rooted! adb shell
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 of=/sdcard/26.baseband.img
Exit from adb shell(back to normal prompt) adb pull /sdcard/26.baseband.img c:\temp\baseband.img (this is complete partition image so should be 130mb) Grab the zip i posted before and extract to(for example) c:\151baseband\ Swap the 26.baseband.img into this folder replacing the original file Rezip the contents of this folder, push to SD of your not working phone and flash. Done! (hopefully) If need be we can also use the same process for /cust partition
If this works please post the completed zip file here as looking back in history other people have the same issue!
I will have to remember that procedure, was a couple of years ago! Or of interest, (and possible other solution) the other official firmware you found for the 151 are there any comparable with Canada? Here is a quick list of countries and providers I found: www.worldtimezone.com/gsm.html
