Hello All,

I've bought the "Vodafone 845 nova" a week ago, for my first android experience. after installing some apps and using this phone, I wanted to know how to get rid of the annoying and buggy Vodafone apps like the browser and the simtoolkit and the not working e-mail app. After some research I found out that I need root access or an custom rom. Can anyone help me?


I've found an link to the official roms:

Hi Guys,

I hope someone can help me, I have a vodafone 845 and want to create a custom rom for it.. i have downloaded the orginal rom from huaweidevices and on ubuntu stript it with the use of a perl script. Then i used unyaffs for windows to unzip te system.img after that i created a new zip with systemdirectory, boot.img and META-INF, then i signed the zip and send it to my sdcard.

I booted into recovery and flasht the zip after 1 or 2 minutes after succesfully format of system he begins to copy and then it gives a error on a bin file and stops..

i have used the following website:

freddyemmer: May I ask how did you manage to get a working boot.img repack? I'm pulling my hair out here trying to boot my own kernel compile on VF845. I've tried all the suggestions for Pulse Mini, tried some things on my own (like veryfing the memory offset value and the values in the new boot.img header) but all I get is bootloop (even before the first "android" logo shows). Even if I just get your boot.img a repack it, it doesn't boot...what tools did you use and how exactly? Thanks for any tip you can share.

Thanks for replying.

However, that guide doesn't work for me. Either it's because of the header editing (my kernel has different size, so I can't just rewrite the header according to the previously working boot.img as suggested) or I really screwed something up and it simply doesn't boot...

Anyway, I did not modify much, just a few settings here and there (like the default scheduler). I just wanted to test a few things before I perhaps add some real modifications. And of course, if I ever make it work, you'll be free to use it wherever you like :D (we're talking open source, after all :) )

I'll try to dig in a bit more. Thanks again.
