How does that work?

edit: link to the romdump:https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/dump.zip?w=5a90f857


Download the Kenya rom from above in the thread.

Copy UPDATA.APP onto sdcard as specific in the pdf.

I assume you know how to boot into upgrade mode, otherwise see my post above:

fastboot method
  • Unplug the USB cable, turn off your device and take out the battery
  • Replace the battery and turn the device on holding the 'Power' & 'volume down' key. The device will stay at the 'egg timer' screen.
  • Plug the device into the PC.
  • From a command prompt run 'fastboot flash recovery <filename>.img'
  • When this finishes, from the command prompt run 'fastboot reboot'


this method dont work for me
my phone reboot

Are you able to issue fastboot commands at all?

no, fastboot is waiting for the device.

adb is working, but the adb method to install recovery is not.

My wife owns the Sprint Huawei Express, which looks to be a CDMA variant of the Boulder (U8350). I have root access, and was wondering if you could direct me in the right direction for modifying this recovery to work on this device.

Thanks in advance.

1) Are you able to start the phone in fastboot mode at all? (HUAWEI image stays displayed) (that is, regardless of the fastboot prompt working)

2) If yes to (1) - have you installed the additional fastboot drivers on your machine?

Sorry for my very bad english, but i am in the same case. With Bouygues U8350, not possible to boot in fastboot mode (and use dc-unlocker for example).

Thanks if someone have an idea...

It looks like only one live topic about U8350

I bought one branded(named "MTS Pro"(belarus)) few days ago, and try to explore another firmware.

stock U8350 V100R001C00B626SP01 work good for me.

I try several times to flash"[ROM] : de-branded ROM for Orange Barcelona/Huawei U8350 [froyo]"

but "radio" broken in this rom.

return to stock U8350 V100R001C00B626SP01 fix it

and else one thing

information about enter it special modes from Sebastian404 blog not valid for my phone

for my U8350:

recovery: "green button"+volume_up+power

flash firmware from dload: "red button"+volume_UP+power

fastboot: "red button"+volume_UP+power

something like this....

take out usb cable
put off battary, wait 20sec,then insert it back


then press first red button (hold it) , then press volume_DOWN (hold red button+volume_DOWN ) then press power on

hold all 3 button 2-3 sec.

phone must freeze on first logo screen

now you may plug usb to phone & pc, and new device must appear in windows

install drivers for it and run fastboot.exe

Another one bite the dust! Posted Image

Another stupid limitation the phone seller added on the firmware bite the dust. On the Bouygues ROM there is only 2 languages: english and french, and I wanted the phone to speak german.

in /cust/bytel/fr/xml/hw_defaults.xml there is a line:
<string white_languages="fr_FR,en_FR"/>

Once again make the /cust partition writable using adb shell :
adb shell
su
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock8 /cust

Edit the /cust/bytel/fr/xml/hw_defaults.xml by simply removing completely the line <string white_languages="fr_FR,en_FR"/>, save your changes, then you have to reset the phone with CWM (yea, really wipe user data) and voilà , you got back each and every languages Froyo supports. Posted Image

Hi there,

I have a Huawei Boulder re-brancded by Globe Philippines as the "cloudfone Temptation". OS is Asian Rom Android 2.2.

I came across the Sprint Express
which is basically a Huawei Boulder. It says that the OS is Android 2.3 (Gingerbread.)

I hope we will be seeing a 2.3 custom rom soon. :)

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that has contributed to this post up to this point.


I bricked my Barcelona this evening (shouldn't have uninstalled the Orange Homescreen after rooting). I came across this post and the links to the Kenya rom (thanks mr1974, for the correct process). Phone works super now - it's faster, and is a delight to use. Next step is to put in a new battery (ordered from http://uk-batteries-galore.co.uk/), unlock the phone, download LauncherPro, Juice Defender and some other apps.

Thanks, guys (registered on the site just to say thanks).

Download the Kenya rom from above in the thread.

OK, I really HATE the boot screen from Bouygues, so I did my own boot screen.

I found an Huawei boot screen from the u8100. I croped the files to the u8350 screen format, and here it is! A nice boot screen for my boulder.
For the quickstart I read that the file size must be small, so I reduced the color ammount, took only key frames, and I got a quickstart boot screen.

Now to install it... To allow operator customisation these files are in /cust/ partition. For Bouygues Telecom it is in /cust/bytel/fr/media/

So: prerequisite:
1- a functional devkit. If you used SuperOneclick to root your phone it is fully functional.
2- a rooted boulder

For windows users:
- Make sure you activated the USB debug mode,
- connect the boulder to the PC, activate the USB drive, copy the 2 files (bootanimation.zip and bootanimationex.zip) to the sdcard.
- desactivate the USBdrive,
- launch a cmd window,
- type "adb devices", you should see your device on the list
- type "adb shell", the shell starts,
- type "su", the # prompt appears,
- type "mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock8 /cust", the /cust partition is now writable,
- on the boulder, use a file explorer (I use ES File Explorer and activate the root mode in the prefs) and copy bootanimation.zip and bootanimationex.zip to the place where your original files are (make a backup perhaps, in case you hate my work),
- if you want, as long as it is writable, delete the operator apk that you don't use (by me they were in /cust/bytel/fr/app/).

Done! you can reboot the phone and enjoy!

tried this but can't get the /cust partition as writable. using a branded U8350 named globe cloudfone from philippines. Any suggestions? Thanks for this anyway.
