Excuse the possibly silly question... so once you unlock the bootloader you can then flash CWM and then use that as you could previously?

(same question as above!)

Guys, please don't post a reply directly after one you already made. If you need to add more to your post then please use the edit button.

Looking at the Chinese forum there seems to be two ways to unlock the bootloader on the G300. One is official from Huawei and second is using a Chinese app. Is this right?

I'll log into that site and grab the files.

I can't work out how you get the product ID. *#*#1357946#*#* doesn't seem to do anything

Just like to say the C8812 is another variant of the Ascend G300 like the U8818.

*#*#1357946#*#* is just deleting the input when I type it in for me. I just restored my stock ROM too.

Hm.

If I understood well we can lock bootloader of our Huawei G300 to get our warranty back (if there's no link between device failure and unlocking bootloader (and ROM change)).

OK!

Here's what I did, and what happened...
  • Flashed ICS from the official download from the Huawei site (dload dir) - OK!
  • Flashed the vendor package from the official download from the Huawei site (vendor dir) - OK!
  • Installed ADB drivers from the ISO mounted on the phone - OK!
  • Ran 'unlockbootloader.exe' and clicked root - OK!
  • Verified root - OK!
  • Ran 'unlockbootloader.exe' and clicked bootloader - app closed on completion - OK!
  • Started device in bootloader and fastboot flashed clockworkmod recovery - OK!
  • Launched clockworkmod recovery - OK!
  • Launched device normally with SIM inserted, got service and made call - OK!
That's what I call a success! :)

Next, make a MCR of B192 to go over the top with Chinese stuff removed and Google stuff added! :)

Been using mine today while out `n` about at work. Battery life seems about the same on 926,wifi is way quicker to authenticate now,gps locks on pretty quick too. all but google talk works on mine but as i don`t use it it`s no loss to me. :)

Will see how some of you peeps go with that bl unlocking tool before i delve in again!
