Correct. Version 2.3.6. Problems are accessing phone in bootloader mode.

EDIT: I have go to the recovery screen rebooted my device but it's not rooted!
PS I have gone to the recovery screen while still saying "waiting for device"

2nd edit: Just did it! Installed Huawei's Hi Suite drivers and it's all good! Rooted!

Having a wee problem with this, here is the cmd screen:-



C:\ANDROID\r1-g300-superrecovery>fastboot-windows.exe flash recovery recovery.su
perrecovery.img
sending 'recovery' (5074 KB)... OKAY
writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: Command not allowed)

C:\ANDROID\r1-g300-superrecovery>echo Now reboot to recovery to root your device
(pull battery, then hold volume up and press power).
Now reboot to recovery to root your device (pull battery, then hold volume up an
d press power).

C:\ANDROID\r1-g300-superrecovery>pause
Press any key to continue . . .


Any help please, with the message on line 4?

I have upgraded to ICS Ok, but to be honest, i miss the Vodofone apps, and Google Play won't work.

Well I waited and waited for a reply. Well while I waited, I played, I found the following.

Someone asked in another post. "Why does their screen go pink when booting with both up and down volume pressed. ANS. Because there is nothing in the dload folder.......

I couldn't get any of the root tools to work. Eventually I got CWM, unzipped it, loaded the image file in the SDCard, rebooted, since then everthing root orientated has worked. So perhaps this might be of some use to others, who get stuck, not being able to upgrade up or down.

if you are on ics the rooting is different to that on gingerbread. please use the ics bootloader and root then use the clockwork mod ,make shure you enable unknown devies and usb debugging .

Got it! Thank you very much...!

All credit to Yaff in post 179 and GB-UK in post 180 and those who helped them.

I'm going from boxfresh 2.3.6 and followed their instructions. What follows is shameless plagiarism with some extra bits thrown in:

0- I don’t think this is necessary but can’t rule it out as I did it. Connect phone to a PC and install the drivers on/from the phone.

There's a drivers folder with an .exe in it double-click that and follow screens. For this step (step 0) you want USB Debugging unchecked so that the handset will act as mass storage (select the phone screen option to Turn on USB storage) and you can navigate its folders on your PC to find the drivers, you'll find them in adb_drivers (it's within a green icon or virtual disk as part of the Devices with removable storage section of Windows Explorer).


1- Now turn on USB DEBUGGING and uncheck Fast Boot
Go to Settings > Application Settings > Development and check the "USB Debugging" box.
Also, in Application Settings uncheck "Fast Boot".

2- download the superrecovery file in post #1 on to a pc (need software like winrar), once downloaded extract the files in to a folder.

3- Put the phone in bootloader mode: Switch phone off, take battery out, take USB out (if connected) wait a few seconds, put battery back in. Hold the volume down button and press the power buttons for several seconds. The Huawei logo should not disappear, if it does you need to do step three again, but try holding the volume and power button for longer.

4- Connect your phone to your PC. Now go to the folder where the downloaded file was extracted and double click the ‘install-superrecovery-windows.bat' file.
You should see a black command prompt screen, only last a few seconds, says something like ‘waiting for devise’.


This is where i came unstuck - it hung on the Waiting for Device message - so now i had to go to

Control Panel > Device Manager expand and right-click Android at lowest level, select Properties, then Driver tab and Update Driver, Search Automatically where it then found Android Sooner Single ADB Interface. Presumabley something to do with Step 0...

After that when i double click the ‘install-superrecovery-windows.bat' file it didn't hang!


5- Switch phone off by taking battery out, take cable out too, wait a few seconds, put battery back in. Now hold the volume up button and press the power button until the blue recovery screen appears. The ‘reboot devise’ should be highlighted, select it by pressing the power button.

6- Complete, phone should be rooted. You should be able to see a SuperSU icon/app somewhere and if you try Titanium Backup Free app it should find root access when it tries.

W00t!
Vote up the reputation/post if it helped you...

I have tried all the above - and still no joy. The strange thing is that I seem to be having trouble getting/keeping it in bootloader mode.
Often once I release the keys it just boots in to Android - or if it does stay at the logo screen, as soon as I plug a USB cable in it boots into Android.
I tried continuing to hold the down key and that seemed to work, but alas no "SU" in apps drawer - so obviously it failed.

My phone came unlocked and with ICS on (Huawei ROM I believe)
Any ideas would be gratefully received.

Isn't a different method required for rooting ICS? And is Fast Boot defo unchecked?

(I can't be sure but somethig named Fast Boot sounds like it might try to speed up the boot process and not give you the chance to go into bootloader.)

This thread, Step 2, Bullet 6 sounds like 'root ics' instructions to me:
