KelDG added a topic in Huawei Ascend G510 / Orange Daytona / Y300 / G330Custom Recovery options.Hi all
I have been sifting through the fragmented data that exists on custom recovery and rooting for the G510 and have a couple of questions if you have the time.
Does TWRP (or any other custom recovery) need the bootloader unlocked to work if the phone is already rooted?
I ask this as I have found this tool (http://www.cydiaimpactor.com/) which says it can root the G510 without needing to unlock the bootloader. I found it via XDA and have seen it on youtube a couple of times.
I was wondering as if you can, it means you don't need to unlock the bootloader and "void" your warranty.
Any input would be great, as I am trying to get my head round this.

KelDG added a topic in Huawei Ascend G510 / Orange Daytona / Y300 / G330Awake much?Hi all, can some of you guys share your stats of "Cell standby/Wi-fi/Phone Idle/Screen"
Even though I don't use my phone much (about 1hr of screen time in a day) it seems to be awake a large chunk of the day, see the image below. I want to know if this is normal. I keep Wi-Fi turned on, data off, I have full reception bars at all times on my signal for both Wi-fi and Cell. I have the usual apps running (Dropbox/Facebook) I dont have any free to play games or any other crap installed. Its weird as Wakelock Detector tells me to phone is awake only around 2 hours in the day, but the bar in the battery stats seems pretty active.
Most days I get
Cell Standby 30%
Phone Idle 30%
(This pic is of 20 hours at about 30% charge and the Awake bar is not as busy as it is usually)

KelDG added a topic in Huawei Ascend G510 / Orange Daytona / Y300 / G330Apex / Nova launcher on the G510I keep reading that these launchers use less RAM than the stock launchers. Is this worth doing?
EDIT : I didn't realise how easy it was to put on the Apex launcher, I thought it was a more involved process than simply installing the app. Silly me. But my question is now "Will the RAM EmotionUI was using be freed up, or am I now essentially running two launchers at once?
Sorry for the noob question
Thanks in advance.

KelDG added a topic in Huawei Ascend G510 / Orange Daytona / Y300 / G330Should I update my G510?G510-0100V100R001C02B171
I take it the B171 I bolded is the version number people refer to. Should I update the phone, or will this lock me out of rooting later on?
Only asking as NOT updating my PSP allowed me to "root" that and I don't want to accidentally lock myself out of messing with this phone at a later date.

KelDG added a topic in Huawei Ascend G510 / Orange Daytona / Y300 / G330G510 vs Y300 screen (TFT vs IPS)Hi all
I am looking to buy one of these two phones, I have a G300 and I love the screen (IPS), how does the TFT screen on the G510 compare to an IPS screen?
Is there much or any difference, I cannot seem to find any comparisons on these particular phones.
