I have a problem, after trying to install the custom rom on the last step, I was left with my phone stuck on the huawei logo and could not get out of it. Now I can still boot into clockworkmod recovery mode, however my phone does not start up and any stock rom updates i have tried, including the middle update, all fail with a pink bar at about half way on my phone.

Please help!

the report from my last update attempt:

filename = /mmc1/dload/update.app
call RCV_MODULE_END_EVENT failed,module = OEMSBL_VER_LIST
OEMSBL_VER fail.

Did you following pages 1 - 8 from the guide? Is yes, try the following:
  • Boot into ClockworkMod Recovery.
  • Select advanced
  • Select Wipe Dalvik Cache
  • Select Yes - Wipe Dalvik Cache
  • Once complete, press the Back / Return button.
  • Select wipe data/factory reset
  • Select Yes -- delete all user data
  • Once complete, select wipe cache partition
  • Select Yes- Wipe Cache
  • Select reboot system now
If that still doesn't fix the problem, put the official ICS update on your SD card and follow I want to install the official Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update. You might need a microSD card reader to copy the zip to the SD card (£1 from eBay) or if you have another phone with a microSD card, you can use that.

There is no official ICS update available for my region, so I wanted to install the official ICS ROM by using this method. I had a few doubts regarding this.

1. When I click on storage under setting it shows and Internal storgae of 653Mb and also shows internal Micro SD card, in which available space is 1.93Gb. SO i wanted to ask do I need to buy a Micro SD card, or the internal Micro SD card would be enough, and are there any precautions that need to be taken while doing this procedure on the internal SD card.

2. Also if suppose official update is released at a later date for my region as well, if after having done this procedure and being on the official ICS version, upgrading via the update software option cause any problems, or this should not be done in any case ..

Well I tried using this method and I think I got my phone bricked. I got to step 3,the phone froze on the splash screen as it should when presing vol- and the power button.I connect the phone to the pc (all drivers installed ofc) and run GingerbreadRoot.exe. In cmd I get the message Sending Recovery Okay, Writing Recovery Okay and then cmd closes. Then I remove the battery for a while and hold volume+ and the power button to get to recovery. I do get to the recovery but as soon it starts I get


E:failed to mount /data (Invalid argument)
E:Can't mount /data/fota/ipth-muc.prop
E:failed to mount /data (Invalid argument)
E:Can't mount /data/fota/ipth-muc.prop
E:failed to mount /data (Invalid argument)
E:Can't mount /data/fota/ipth-muc.prop
E:failed to mount /data (Invalid argument)
E:Can't mount /data/last_log
E:Can't open /data/last_log

After that I select Reboot system now from recovery, the phone tries to restart, I get the splash screen for a couple of seconds and then a white shiny word Android and the phone just never boots.
What should I do now?

1. You need a microSD card. Get a cheap second hand one from eBay for around £1. No Precautions.

2 If your region/network releases an official ICS update, you will have to manually install it when someone uploads the UPDATE.APP, or someone may make a flashable zip.

Take out your microSD card if it's inserted. Boot into the recovery again. Select wipe data / factory reset. Then wipe cache partition. Then reboot system now. Hopefully it will boot, but it may take a few minutes. You will probably have to start the guide from scratch again, as you will lose root. Try the root procedure without the microSD card.

Okay cool, so i just checked my region website and the ICS update is available now, but I will have to do it using a SD Card, as it is not available via Online upgrade, I have downloaded the UPDATE.APP file from the Huawei Website for my region, and also the online instruction manual which explains how to do this update.


What I wanted to ask is, that the .rar file I downloaded from My regions Huawei Site is named as HUAWEI U8815 V100R001C151B940, can anyone tell me which version of ICS this is, is it B940 ? also are people on ICS experiencing any kind of problems with the stock official ICS, or in other words, is it running smoothly on G300 ?

Also which is the most latest version of ICS available ? and why do people opt for custom Rom's over stock ICS ?

Sorry if the above questions sound like Newbie type's but this is my first Android phone, and so I really am a Newbie

hi everyone, i have read the guide twice but i have some questions before i actually start messing around with the phone, these are my questions:

1 - my phone is currently running the official ics update from vodafone(4.0.3), my baseband is 2030 and i have the b936 version
2 - my phone has been already rooted trough another method (i have the app Superuser), do i need to re-root trough the method on this tutorial?
3 - given the above, do i need to update to an official b944 first and then install a custom rom or can i go right ahead and install a custom rom?

Hi, my first post here, if I follow "How to install a custom Jelly Bean / ICS ROM from scratch" as far as "Re-root, unlock bootloader & install ClockworkMod Recovery" will I then be able to go onto install the MIUI ROM? Thanks.

A great tutorial.... I am a complete newbie to Android....However....

When I get to the bit about downloading the B936 file....I get to about 360mb of the 385mb and every time, the download gets interupted and I have to start again!

Any ideas?

Thanks

Wonderful, now can you make a similar guide to unroot and return it to factory state (in case warranty is required). TIA
