Need some clarification here, can someone confirm that the 2.1 to 1.5 downgrade file is only 166kb??

I was expecting it to be a ROM about 60mb +??

It only re-formats partitions on your phone (or so I understood). After that you install 1.5, 1.7, or whatever you want

So I apply that repartion update, then straight after boot into recovery to flash a custom 1.5 rom?

because this tutorial says, (Doesnt say anything about flashing a custom rom?)

Step 4: Power off your Device. When the phone has fully powered off press and hold the following buttons: POWER + RED (End Call) + VOLUME UP
You may release these buttons when the message "Preparing Update" appears on your screen

Step 5: Confirm that you wish to update and allow the device to run it's course. The phone may get stuck on "Restarting" if so wait a few minutes then remove and re-insert the battery
If your phone "Fails to Update" Please refer to the FAQ [here]

Step 6: Allow your phone 5+ minutes to boot up for the first time.

Quote from "Huawei allowed us to return to 1.5 or whereever we want":

You flash this UPDATA:APP - i guess it restores the firmware id.
Then you can flash dec update or any other UPDATA.APP, since it contains the first release ID.
You put the appropriate UPDATA.APP to /sdcard/dload and flash.


Just tried this to downgrade my Pulse from 2.1 to 1.5. Works perfectly. Flashed the DecemberUpdate and then superboot, amonra and restored my nandroid backup :D


1. Install the "Time Machine" UPDATA.APP
2. Install the December Update UPDATA.APP
3. Install Amon-Ra recovery
4. Wipe just in case. (Probably not needed...)
5. Nandroid restore
6. ????
7. PROFIT!! :lol: :D

Ahh ok, so once I install the TIMEMACHINE :lol:, do I boot it up into the OS, or Recovery or what?

How do I place the 2.1 to 1.5 dload, install that, then do the 1.5 december without turning the phone into OS?

Okay, so it looks like that part of the guide was wrong :S
So.. Do you have to install the December update before a custom rom?

So can I install a 2.1 custom rom from the 2.1 update, or do I need to go back to 1.5 first?

I really need to know if you can install the "December Update" as a full rom. Otherwise you would have to install the origonal rom then upgrade.
