Hi all

I installed B888 on May 11th & its worked fine till now.
I'm not sure if I've a hardware fault or a software fault.
I was initailly having problems with the FaceBook app ( God its slow) and I tried to install an update.

Well I dont know what I've done - it would not fire up. When I put in the battery I get the red Huawei splash screen then a cycle of -

Android splash screen
phone rings and...
No Service (Locked)
Android splash screen
phone rings and...
No Service (Locked)
etc.
Untill it switches itself off, after some time.

The SIM works fine in the old ZTE Blade.

All suggestions taken seriously.

Thanks

Try without the sim or with different one, can't imagine that's the issue though
Try without memory card if you have one

Maybe reflash the rom

Just reinstall the rom then you will know if it is a software or hardware issue.

mmmmm.

well I've done that twice.
It appears to install fine GR1-B888 from the SD card.
No error messages.
I go back to reboot and.....

it connects briefly to ' Telefonica, O2 '

and then goes back into the reboot cycle described above and crashes on the NO SERVICE screen.
Its NOT the Sim card I just tested it in a spare ZTE Blade.

What do I do next please ?

Wipe Data/Factory Reset ?

Confused.

Oh Well.

I've recovered it back via CWM to May 13th ...just after I flashed it to GR1 B888.
It seems to work just fine.

I'm sure there was an more elegant solution.

Onwards & Upwards.

I'd have gone for that as next resort if knew you had a backup, at least it's back up and running.
