I've tried flashing all the Huawei ROMS, but they get stuck on "Update failed"
The only one I can get booting is Seb404's debranded ROM flashed via CWM.
I think maybe the partitions were somehow changed - anyone have any ideas for this?

I'm getting the same as you KasioPC best put a warning in the B888 rom topic.
I like the B888 so not to bothered as log as don't need to send back phone
Done and done. I think we need someone to post a list of the partition sizes from one not flashed with B888, and compare it with ours.

I'm confused. Can you not just wipe data etc and stick with B888 or does that not boot now? Maybe there is something blocking downgrading? Maybe get a rom dump of B888, copy over the system folder to your system and then wipe data see if that boots?

thanks alot for telling/teaching me Im learning...thanks everyone
The previous ROM Images assume a specific number and size of partitions. This has changed with this update. So to restore to a previous ROM a process to redefine the partitions to the old number and size is needed. Once this process has been written and tested it will be possible to restore the old ROMs.
Can someone who hasn't flashed B888 reboot into Clockwork, connect via USB and go to 'adb shell'
Then type 'parted /dev/block/mmcblk0 print' and post what you get.

I'm at at work -no USB access to the phone.
parted is runnable from the phone's terminal but says access denied, tried su but the new prompt still says access denied.
Is there a way to get terminal access to parted say from recovery, I have CWR installed (at a look but could not see it)
I've 3g access at work and the G300 phone, rooted with Seb's CWR. Happy to report back the parted output but cannot run it and no ADB at work.
parted wont work with this device.. however:
