Yeah I think somehow I had forgotten something like this. It's working now. Thanks everyone!!

Now just to have a look at how the hell to add init.d support... Any pointers? Posted Image


you need to unpack the boot.img and add this to init.rc then repackage it


service sysinit /system/bin/logwrapper /system/xbin/busybox run-parts /system/etc/init.d
	disabled
	oneshot

or you can use cygwin and disxda kitchen

If you don't want to edit the init.rc inside the boot.img you can just create the file install-recovery.sh inside /etc to launch init.d scripts

/etc/install-recovery.sh
#!/system/bin/sh
export PATH=/sbin:/system/sbin:/system/bin:/system/xbin
logwrapper busybox run-parts /system/etc/init.d

Make sure:

install-recovery.sh
init.d folder
any init.d scripts

has chmod 755 permissions

No vendor boot animation, just the stock Android one, booting...

Already made a CWM repack.

Edit: it comes preloaded with Chrome? What?

Is anyone else experiencing a laggy B936 after booting the phone. It runs smoothly after about a minute.

Yes my phone runs as slowly as heck after the upgrade, especially the browser, which is virtually unusable. I hate it. The battery life is useless and wifi connection is unreliable. I much preferred 2.3.6 - is it possible to go back to that?

Edit - I think the problem was my wireless router. It wasn't allocating IP addresses properly. So I think the phone was constantly trying to get an address, and using up its battery. I upgraded the router's firmware and everything now seems much better. Battery has only dropped a few percent overnight.

Ok, firstly apologies if this has been answered, I have checked the posts but still unsure.

Recently got this phone and wanted ICS. I found the ICS 4.0.3 926 Cinese ROM and proceeded with rooting my phone, then flashing 926, re-rooting then installing CWM plus reflashing to the 927 ROM which included the google apps.

However, I needed to access my corporate email using touch down. The corporate install failed with a security check. I thought it may be because the phone was rooted so just re-flashed with 926 {(which apparently resets the rooting).

Anyway, this appeared to work and I have my corporate mail, however, as I am sure many are aware no google apps in the chinese 926 and I couldnt get the google apps loaded (to my knowledge) without re-routing and installing from ZIP using CWM.

So, thought I would try this ROM, copied to SD card and says update failed, also tried the 927 ROM (Stock then vendor) from this forum but update failed, finally tried the download from Huawei website (934) and yes I get the update failed too regardless of a update via SD options oir force with the volume contol / reboot.

Conscious of having to re-root etc as need my work email eventually and was hoping I could just re-flash as standard with the update.app.

Help greatly appreciated.

Have you tried the middle package that may help and some people have success using the internal sd card for a forced load. If not you could always get Google play app from other stores using the browser.
http://www.modaco.co...?/topic/355873-[GUIDE]Possibly-a-New-Rom-Downgrade-upgrade-Tool-found
Here's a link for the middle package place in dload folder and force flash then try force flash any official update app

Hi,

Thanks for the prompt response. I meant to say in my original post I tried the middle ZIP file based on comments on one of the other posts. It didnt work.

Just downloaded the ZIP you sent, exracted to SD card in dload and rebooted with the volume keys. Update failed again.

I was hoping that one of the full update apps would have simply overwritten as the Chinese ROM I am on has no root.

I did get a download APK of the google store app but it wont load just tries to load and flips back to home screen. Other forums recommend a clean of the dalvik cache but again would appear a need a rooted device / CWM installed - catch 22?
