Looks quite interesting. I'll see if I can rip it apart and check for any differences. I just hope it uses the old Huawei update process. The new one doesn't work with the unpacking script, and I doubt it will flash on our phones.
Quick question. Those who upgraded to B888 via the default Huawei method, are you able to use iPlayer? I've noticed mine is not showing any programmes, and I have tried on multiple networks. Flashing B888 is (what I think) the only thing that changed..
I realised after I tried it, although I thought it may have been the ROM messing up the partitions. The fdisk output should hopefully be enough to rebuild the partition table manually - I'll have a crack on my day off (after making a dd backup :P)
With B888, I'm thinking it is the actual update file that changes the partitions. I believe, as someone said, perhaps to prepare for ICS. I used a Kingston and SanDisk one for all the times I've tried, and always the same result.
There looks to be a problem restoring to older Huawei ROMs and Clockworkmod backups! I think it is the partition sizes have been altered after flashing B888. I've updated the first post and will update it once I have found a solution. Any help appreciated!
