I've used your roms so know you must be having bad day..
Seen several quotes saying it's booted in English without them changing language.

It seems to be worthwhile installing official first but cm9 isn't near as functional so this seems to be preferable atm

u8815 is uk one, you definitely want 885 update as sorts sound levels somewhat. Not sure if 888 is needed tbh

Erm no clue

No I don't think so. Followed the How to root thread and then the help I'm new and cannot do ones

It's still GB atm

I certainly haven't seen anything better. Only other one I've thought about is the rather dearer and locked shut Orange San Diego


thanks for the info, i might stay away until cm9 gets better and 3.0.8 sourcecode comes out, i hate using official roms, unless we get a european jellybean that is :)

I wouldn't say the san diego is dear, yes dearer than a G300 but in a whole new dimension to the G300 in regards to performance, build quality. Ok it is locked down, which is a real bitch, but wow! what a device, hopefully sebastion404 will get that root he is working on( good luck seb)
If you want a really good device for a daily driver, the OSD is worth every penny, as long as like me, you have a G300 to play with for root and roms, but it is very early days for the OSD, certainly not a closed book that's for sure.

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

Hm.


That code does now seem to work once flashed to ICS although even with the product code the website still throws up some error, so probably worth just forgetting the official route and just using the .exe

Here's what I did, and what happened...

  • Flashed the vendor package from the official download from the Huawei site (vendor dir) - OK!

Has anyone tried WITHOUT doing this step, is there anything vital in the vendor package?

really? aren't you finding a lot of apps that don't have atom (x86) support? although i guess that's only ndk stuff. lol, they seem to be using qemu to run the arm apps, but that's fast NOT!

i hate my atom netop and netbook, they're so slow.

doesn't see to be an OSD forum yet, what's its zte codename? oh wait its made by gigabyte the motherboard guys?!

found it: http://www.modaco.co...diegomodacocom/

Hi,

After rereading everything I think I managed to find the answers to my questions on page 7.

Still need some advice though; my phone is completely stock, not rooted etc so I was wondering if it was advisable to root now, install clockwork and make a nandroid back up before I start? I am assuming not as you won't be able to go back to gingerbread anyway, or can you?

Thanks for any info.

Myself and others have flashed without using the vendor package and works fine.

No just about every app works, of course there will be some but not many.According to market my purchase of GTA3 is incompatible with the OSD, however, taking the apk from my sd card backup, it installs and plays flawlessly with all effects set to full, and gameloft are releasing x86 versions of their games, two of which are on my OSD now and playing great.(Asphalt 6 & Modern Combat 2)
I think as more X86 devices roll out, the app devs will add support for x86.

I have not had or used an atom powered netbook so cannot compare, but the OSD with the 1.6Ghz hyperthreaded Atom processor is very fast, no lag anywhere, ever, a real pleasure to use.

Yeah, you are correct. A nandroid backup won't really help in this case due to the bootloader and radio being flashed. If you root and install clockwork before hand they will only be removed when you upgrade so there isn't really any point as far as I can see as you will have to do them again anyway.

I said rather dearer which at twice the price it certainly is, not dear for what it is. Though I'm not buying a phone that's nailed down like that. If Seb can work a miracle it becomes so much more tempting. Even then you couldn't say it was in the £100 bracket Sej pitched at.
Besides buying both this and the osd is getting close to the cost of some very serious hardware that isn't locked down. Or as I'm contemplating g300 and N7

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! :)

P


Hi Paul,

Could you or someone please provide me with the links to all the stuff listed in your steps, and maybe some more detailed instructions?

Don't have:

CWM Recovery
ADB Drivers

I've got the Bootloader.

But the link to the B926 ROM on here doesn't work...

http://www.huaweidev...softid=NDE4NjY=

I'm currenlty using the B888 Stock Rom. Is it entirey necessary to root the phone as well, or do I just need to flash the ROM and Vendor files using the standard method?

Any help here would be much appreciated!

Also I'm hoping this will fix my weak/inconsistent signal issue. Anyone know if this ROM is better?

Ross

SD backup on osd? Yeah I'm sure Intel will be seeking to increase numbers of x86 games

I think it's a tempting comparison for people to think about as both atom, but other phone processors would struggle with windows just as much. Just like I wouldn't want a netbook with less than 2gb ram but not necessary yet.

Wonders off to check the topic oops.
Good work on the boatloader, likely put ICS on partners phone when she's not looking now :)

SD backup on osd?

I have sd card backups on pc, the osd only has internal sd card, although there is a slot for one, hopefuly something root can solve.

i have installed official ICS everything is working fine but when i go on the bootloaderunlock when i try to root it just comes up with cannot find file path HELP!


It is saying when i do it 'xit' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable command or batch file.
