hi there make sure you are downloading the correct version of firmware for the phone also
make sure that you put the dload folder on the root of the sd card make sure phone has full charge

Can I ask, why do you choose the Huawei Ascend not the Mini Pulse option?

Flashing mine with a custom ROM (TCT and later tahahawa's) also rooted the phone.

OK, thanks. Was wondering if it was worth updating from CWM v1.8.1.4 which I used that's all.

i have found that updating rom manager doesnt make a difference as long as u have the correct recovery image
i have also found that cwm isnt really needed u can use recovery manager.if you find a problem with recovery manger stick with cwm to all t-mobile pulse mini owners the handset as been offically discontined by t-mobile and is in the process of being removed from stores

I'm quite confused.

I thought the ascend was a CDMA phone.

Thanks- I can confirm that flashing the Pulse Mini recovery from RomManager results in a recovery image that won't boot, whereas the Ascend one does, and appears from my limited investigation to work.

So cheers for putting me on the right track :).

  • Devices:Pulse Mini (T-Mobile UK)
Hi there everyone, Please forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place as this is my first post. you'll see from my links that I use XDA-Developers.com a lot.

Currently using as follows:

Phone: UK T-Mobile Pulse Mini
Rom: Joilaroi CM7.3.5 v12 rev B
Recovery: Clockworks 5.0.2.3 for U8100


SD-EXT compatible Recovery for UK T-Mobile Pulse Mini


I've discovered that the Clockworks recoveries for pulse mini don't work on the UK T-mobile version when attempting to backup, restore or format the \sd-ext partitionPosted Image however the Amnon Ra recovery provided in this thread does work.Posted Image
Me being me, I wanted to be able to use the Clockworks recovery as it can use signed or unsigned rom updates. After a lot of searching and playing with different Roms I found the Clockworks 5.0.2.3 for U8100 by pure chance over on XDA-Developers, forum page here: http://forum.xda-dev....php?t=1289745# and the link to the image here Clockworks 5.0.2.3 for u8100 this does appear to work nicely.Posted Image


Cyanogen Mod 7.3.5

Now for those of you who would like the CM7 Mod, please note this is an Unoffical Mod and it is NOT my work it is Joilaroi's work; take a look at this forum page, (also on XDA-Developers): http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=950491 like I said I'm using version 12 revision B as I find that to be stable on my phone even though it's aimed at the u8120! You'll find the link about halfway down, the version I use is this one: cm7.1_ver12b

Joilaroi's CM7 mod is the only one I've found that supports the \sd-ext partition and usb-pc mounting, one really cool thing is this version auto mounts USB-PC and the phone can still access the sd card while mounted to usb-pc! Nice work Joilaroi.Posted Image


APPS to SD-EXT support

The only thing I would note is that it comes with Link2SD more info on it on XDA-Developers here: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=919326 direct link here: Link2SD 1.9.3.apk or on market; as opposed to Darktremmors A2SD which you can get from here: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=715940 or http://www.darktremor.info/index.html , or S2E which is designed purely for CM7 Mod which you can get here: http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=917377 also available on market.
Each of these approaches have their pros and cons so take your pick.

Hope all this helps you get the most out of this great little phone.Posted Image
