PJ77, Muito obrigado! :)

Can you recommend a way to backup up my ROM after rooting? Just in case someone wants to have a look at it, or I wish to go back to stock after experimenting with alternatives.


I wouldn't worry about that.
You being Portuguese I assume in case of need you will want the TMN stock rom, yes?
You can download it from here:
http://www.huaweidev...&softid=Mzk1MzM=

But if you need to send your device for assistance or something any stock rom is valid, dont need to be that specific one and there are newer versions of stock rom ;)

This page seems to have good info! But I don't have the basic knowledge to understand it. Maybe you can add an shot explanation to what everything does: Example
'ClockWorkMod' -> is this to install custom-roms? Or does it also allow backups to be taken.
Also the link in the original post to 'ClockWorkMod', leads to a page 'Perfect Recovery 4.0.0.5'. Is this the same application (because the names don't match in any way)?
Do you need to root your phone to install this


If anyone has good link for noobs who just bought this phone as his first smartphone? To give me background to understand this page better :)

Thanks,
Tom

Yes, Clockworkmod (CWM) is used to install custom roms and also for backups and restores.

If you want to install the CWM I suggest the new versions. Read here:
http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1229326


To install the CWM you need first to root your phone.
I advise Super1click (http://www.multiupload.com/KIELHSVIPG)


NOTE that first thing to do is to root the phone, ok?
You can root and install CWM and keep your stock rom. What this does is leave the door open for future alterations, installing roms, etc.

Read the tutorial that is very well written and explained and if you have any doubts just ask ;)

You don't need to root before installing CWM. Just install CWM and install custom ROM with it and everything is fine.
And this is newest CWM, not the one you linked.

If you at least read that thread you won't come here saying the opposite of me and misleading those who want to learn. That new recovery is still experimental and only works well with MIUI room. Don't even work with ffranco's kernels.
The correct way of doing for beginners was as I said. Don't lead people that have no experience into middle of instable procedures ok? my way is the right way, but each one does the way he chooses.

Hi,

I have a prob after re-partition the memory. Seems that all the apps run on my memory card instead of run from phone memory. Now, my phone memory is empty with only file is LOST.DIR. May i know how to fix this?

Thanks

Hello all !

Im new to forums, proud new user of U8800.

I've got an question. I've purchased Ideos few days ago and i've got some quality issues with mic, Im wondering if there is already any fix about it ? (i've read alot on forums and didnt rly found an working solution).

And another, when installing custom firmware/roms is there a way to preserve warranty ?
I've got 2 years warranty which i wouldnt like to lose due custom rom instaling. So I'd love to see some kind of backup possibility so before i get phone to repairs (in case it breaks) i can recover original firmware (B135 installed).

Best Regards !

I use MIUI and they seem to have tweaked both the Mic and Speaker. It the sound seems allot better than the Stock ROM.

You can backup the Stock ROM using ClockworkMod so if you need to send your phone back you can restore the backup first :)

Hope this helps!

Thank you very much :).

Though a hour ago (before i've got to read you're post) i've managed to backup using clock :P and installed CM7 and im really impressed by it. Also mic seems to work better (more clear sound).
I'm staying on this one now :). I hope the minor bugs get fixed soon also.

What are you talking about? New recovery works perfectly with franco's kernel and there is no need to root before installing CWM.

at the time I post that reply it didn't. When I speak, I do with by own experience and not because I heard from someone ok?
Franco then launched a fix kernel to be compatible with this new recovery.

And yes, you should root first and then CWM after. Obviously you don't need to root to install the CWM but this is recommendable, for the cause you dont want to install a custom rom and keep using stock.

It was fixed before I posted here. Look here: http://forum.xda-dev...&postcount=1073
You can install CWM and use stock ROM. Still no need for root if you don't want to.
