arcuser added a topic in Huawei Ascend G300 - G300.MoDaCo.comG300 Downgrade from ICS to GB - Working Link and Advice please?Background:
Was on GB 2.3.6 stock Vodafone UK firmware Baseband 109808 for around 2 years - rooted, bootloader unlocked and running ClockWorkMod recovery.
Woke up one morning and when powering up was greeted with the "Welcome to Android" message. I was like wtf?!
Handset seemed to have completely reset to factory default - all call history, numbers, txts etc. were gone. Still can't quite figure out what happened.
Tried to boot into ClockworkMod, didn't work. After much reading and messing around, trying to unlock the bootloader and check root etc. thought I had ended up with a brick (handset was stuck in a constant bootloop) but eventually was left with no real choice except to install official firmware for ICS 4.0.3
Am on ICS 4.0.3 - Baseband 2030, build U8815V100R001C02B961 (official, downloaded from Huawei website) bootloader is unlocked and handset is rooted.
Can't find any working links to downgrade again to Gingerbread 2.3.6 or 2.3.7 - all seem to be dead
The downgrade from Huawei official website also seems to be gone.
Only thing I can find is this: http://huaweimobile.com.au/support/mobile-phones from the Huawei Australia website (Click on Huawei G300)
"Downgrade Software from Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) to Gingerbread (2.3) Suitable for downgrade from build number U8815-51V100R001C346B958" Not sure whether to chance using this or not, as I am currently on U8815V100R001C02B961.
Looking for the proper Downgrade zip file to get back to U8815V100R001C02B892 or B896 (I think?) Stock Vodafone UK firmware
and hope someone still has it and can please upload it?
and/or the firmware of U8815V100R001C02B892 or B896 would be helpful (or whatever the latest Gingerbread official firmware is)
