Anyway, it's good that they gave you a replacement one, and hopefully, the .zip will have the files that the community needs.
Just remember if you're doing OTA's to not remove Vodafone bloat and restore stock recovery!

Found this, think it will work!!

Hope it works anyway, you can try it on your phone as you will have a Nandroid to restore......

Before you flash it, don't forget wipes!!!

See my edit above.... :P

Try it on your phone, if it works post it.......

otherwise you have a Nandroid to restore you phone.....

you should always try to restore your own Nandroid, just so you get no surprises when you really need it!!!

What happened??

Did you have CWM to flash the ROM zip you made from your Nandroid??

Did the procedure I linked fail to produce a flashable zip of your Nandroid??

When you say the root of the phone, have you tried with a Root Explorer, like ES??

Your Nandroid should have copied everything on the phone, as it would need to have all partitions to restore phone to state it was at when Nandroid was made.....so am I misunderstanding something??

well basically
what i have done so far
copied the back up i made through CWM and zipped it up but it can only be restored if it extracted not as a zip
so i dont know if that is convenient for people or not,as im new to the rom zip

I see you posted the Nandroid restore.....sorry if the flashable zip thing didn't work out!!!

I think restoring it via CWM should be Ok....as you said Black Notes by Rio worked fine with my other Sammy device, gt-i8150.....

I have a Voda Ireland Ascend with B886 FW which is what they sell with here.....

I may look into making a CWM Flashable zip if it is of any help to folks here??

I have not done anything apart from remove the Game Demos, rooted and SIM unlocked....so it is pretty pristine :D

ok, here are two empty rom .zip's you can use

one is for gingerbread roms and the other for ics roms

Attached File  gingerbread-roms.zip   124.16KB   0 downloads

Attached File  ics-roms.zip   149.74KB   22 downloads

so, all you need from your clockwork mod backup is the system.img & boot.img

first you will need the system.img unpacked, i use this http://www.solidfile...m/d/4178efa9b0/

so after unpacking the system.img you should have a system folder,

now its easy, just open one of the .zip's above (do not extract, just open it)
drag and drop the system folder & boot.img into the .zip

done.

now the zip should should like this.

META-INF
system
boot.img




if you have problems or unsure how to do something just ask and i will try to help ;)

That's fantastic tillaz, thanks indeed.....

I am going to make a CWM flashable zip of this Vodafone Ireland B886 GB 2.3.6 ROM....

AFAIK, the UK Stock ROM version is B885, with sound problems??

I will restore all VF Bloat, to keep it right, or not, what do you think??

Also, it is rooted as per Paul's method, but there was no BusyBox install obviously, so I installed one free from Market, Stericsons, for my own use.

I will probably need to remove this, as I am not sure re licensing, but is there any free-to-distribute BusyBox installer which could be included in the ROM, or should I leave it up to ppl to get their own from market or wherever??

Your right of course Mack, I was confusing the original UK Stock ROM FW number, B882??

Anyway, B886 was never available in UK as Official Stock ROM, AFAIK, and it does incorporate Sound fix, and perhaps other things??

It's just because Ascend was released by VF in Ireland only relatively recently, after UK launch.

[probably cheaper here, if you have PAYG SIM to port new VF number to, €20 discount, making it €109, or about £86 UK, free delivery if ordered on-line]

Any views about the BusyBox question I posed??
