Turned off fastboot, USB debugging - on
When I enter bootloader (huawei logo) and connect the USB cable, I start the install-superrecovery-windows.bat ana I get this screen:
I try then to pull batery out, volume UP and power, and (once) there was recovery screen on where I've picked up reboot now option, and,.. after that I DO NOT HAVE SUPERUSER ICON, or my phone is rooted.
Tried to do IMEI backup, and the app says I do not have root privileges.

Thank you ETDJ et al, phone finally rooted. Using your advice on a Vista pc it worked fine - only odd bit was that the usual pop-up when I connected the phone usb did not appear (but the pc did make the connecting new device sound & the driver list updated)
Not sure if it made any difference but I also checked phone was in google mode as suggested by warwound before following your guide
Selected 'ProjectMenu' then 'Background setting' then 'Usb ports setting'.
Now to try and install ICS http://www.modaco.co...03-on-the-g300/

- doesn't say to reconnect USB cable before activating install-superrecovery-windows.bat
- I wasn't prompted to put the device in recovery mode; a DOS window opened and closedy shortly afterwards.
My attempt to follow the protocol rooted my phone but did not give me the superuser app in my apps thingy.

Having trouble rooting. Follow all the steps without any problems but superuser isnt showing. Im thinking maybe driver issue?
Cd drive mobile partner opens when usb connected.

You need a app like titanium backup. Superuser is just a program that lets you control what gets root privilege. It does nothing else

I am now playing with tasker's dpad function - lets you move the cursor around apps and press buttons...automatically. This could be dangerous;-)
PS. If you want to see what install-superrecovery-windows.bat does stick a pause at the end. IE
fastboot-windows.exe flash recovery recovery.superrecovery.img
echo Now reboot to recovery to root your device (pull battery, then hold volume up and press power).

because I am newbie in the android world I have one stupid question ... I successfully root the phone according mentioned procedure (firmware U8815V100R001C02B892). Now I want to update to B895, but it doesn't work.
The thing is that I deleted LiveWallpapers app and update now says:
Checking patch file ...
assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/app/LiveWallpapers.apk")
Error in /sdcard/Download/update.zip
Do I have to re-flash original ROM or the factory reset could help ?
Thanks for any idea.
