Impressively quick work Paul

I am new to Android phones, but will give this a go (when Vodaphone stops cancelling...)

One (newbie) question: Is it easy/possible to un-root the phone (i.e. restore original setup)?

Yeah just restarted the phone after unistallin Root Uninstaller and unticking fast boot now the phone is showing 334Mb of ram (242 free :))

Edit: Now to figure out why the Launcher has lots of gaps where the unstalled apps used to be ..

Edit 2: Clearing the cache for the Huawei Launcher did the trick

Edit 3: Dont uninstall the "HelpLogin App" app as it required by something and the phone will sit there and constantly crash.

On your apps page press the settings cog at the bottom then all the downloaded apps get a cross on them.
You can drag them to one of the dots at the bottom to indicate which page you want them on.
When you've finished, if you have empty apps pages left over just press the tick and empty pages will be removed.

I rooted then accidentally removed the stock calendar thinking it was a vodafone one.

Can i do a factory reset to bring it back?
If so, should i do that via the settings menu or do it via the recovery menu (volume up when powering on)? Does it matter if rooted?

I have backed-up all my downloaded apps via titanium so will just get that from the market when reset is done to reinstall them.

Will i need to re-root?

Download the system folder that Paul uploaded. Extract the calendar related apks and adb push them to system. Job done.

Anyone able to tell me how to extract calendar and related apk's and push them to my phone.

I have the superrecovery folder and see the 5mb rom .img file and the adb-windows.exe.

I'm on win xp sp3 does that matter?

just extract them using winrar or 7zip, then transfer them over to the microsd card on your phone

install root explorer and copy them over to the relevant place

reboot phone and it should then work :)

You shouldn't need to do that. just copy the file to the sdcard by mounting it in Windows like you would if you were copying music and pictures to and from the phone. Then use the normal inbuilt file explorer to open the APK file. You will just need to turn on the option in the settings to allow the installation of packages from unknown locations.

I can't open the recovery img using winrar or 7-zip.

I have browsed to the img file on my phone using es explorer but it still won't open.

It also won't open using WUNYAFFS.

1-Download the extracted ROM from here:

Managed to do all that, but when i select the apk to install, it just says 'app not installed'.
The only option i get then is 'done'.

I have the 'allow installation of unknown sources' box ticked.

Copy them to the system app folder using root explorer and make sure the permissions are set the same as the rest of the apks in that folder. Job done. They wont install normally.

Root explorer was £2.50 so i tried with root browser lite and copied the files to system/app but they wouldn't install.

I'm a bit new to this- I've managed to start it up with the volume down held and it gets stuck on the huawei screen (bootloader mode?) but when I try to connect it to my computer, I get that USB failed noise and it doesn't come up. The cable and USB ports definitely work because I've transferred music onto the phone. What obvious step have I missed?

In ES file explorer go to settings

tick - Root Explorer
tick - Mount File System

Then try pasting the file.
