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! :)

OK!

  • 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!

Would it be possible for someone to post the links to these two download files? I have searched about but I'm worried about grabbing the wrong files (Chinese is not a strong point).

Guys, I've tried to update to B926 from B895 and said update failed, some suggest that flashing B892 first will work and when I try to flash B892 it says update failed. What should I do?

Jekle, are you using stock recovery, do you have a dload folder?

This is why I come here! :D

So to be sure, is there any downside to flashing b926 now? Once that's flashed and bootloader unlocked can we then go back to B888 (or whatever) if we like?

Also if you make a new MCR will I even need to have flashed b926 in the first place?

Yes I copied dload folder to the root of the sd. I actually reflashed B895 and that worked fine. I am using stock recovery. I only rooted B895

its tempting to try this ICS now, but I think I might wait until its officially released here. which i think i read its sometime this month. :)

Vendor files are optional and only needed for that specific operator. I personally wouldn't use them.

So you would still have to flash b926, unlock boot loader, root and then flash pauls rom? Will Paula rom not update the radio also?

I actually followed the Huawei instructions. from what I've heard I need to be on B892 to upgrade to ICS but trying to downgrade to B892 from says update failed. I've tried different SD Cards.
The flasher gave me a log about the downgrade and the ICS flash I'm certain that the same error for both. Even updating from B895 to ICS doesn't work.

Cheers for that.

Also, sorry if I missed this but when Paul upgraded, did he have stock recovery or was a custom recovery already installed?
