watching this with interest as I'm having exactly the same issue!!!!
by the sounds of it we followed the same guide :(

I got the phone saturday and its been fine since then when it rebooted today randomly and then stuck on the splash screen, one weird thing is that last night when I Plugged it into charge it booted straight into recovery.

really hoping this isn't bricked as its literally a few days old and my first 'cheap' phone :angry2:

FYI I tried this guide http://community.gif...nd/ba-p/5781620
I went to b934

trying force back to b926 stops 1/3 of way
reinstalling b934 zip file straight from recovery fails well stops around 90% :((

unsure of the adb stuff as not up on that yet but open to suggestions

Well back to the shop it is then, fingers crossed they don't notice the boot screen and recover screens have magically changed lol

Yeah, pretty much. If the repairman says anything about what the problem is I'll tell you, but we'll just have to wait for now.

Cheers certainly interested in hearing what caused it, mine has just gone back but won't hear anything on mine as its just a catalogue company. Keeping this new one on gingerbread lol - have installed a halo launcher so it looks and feels more like ics

Hi guys. Just got the word back from shop that repairs it. Since they aren't completely idiots they figured out that the phone was reflashed, so the phone's warranty is devoid. They said that they need to replace a main part of the phone (they didn't specify what, even if I asked), which would cost half the price of the phone itself.

Don't take this for granted though, as I said it's a pretty little shop that's in charge of repairing Huawei phones in my country, so I'm pretty sure they just want to squeeze out as much money as they can out of the situation. That being said, the hardware failure is pretty much assured, so probably no luck for you guys either.

It's a linux system at heart and can still boot linux. All other partitions seem to be intact. In theory it really should be possible to fix this even if that meant repartitioning the phone to avoid bad memory locations if indeed there is an actual hardware fault as opposed to a simple corrupt partition.

I'm dubious about a hardware fault that somehow only ever breaks the cache partition leaving all other partitions intact. Smells of a software bug to me but can't be certain of that.

Same problem here, I sent it to the Huawei repair centre in Norwich, UK and they promptly sent it back unfixed with a note saying I had invalidated the warranty and the phone had sustained physical damage due to third party software being present on the phone (now brick). I then tried to put in a complaint and got the call centre run around until I gave up even doing that. £100 for a phone that lasted one year and two months.

Do you definitely have /dload/update.app in the root of your external sdcard?

Is it definitely intact and not a corrupted download?

Did you try the external sdcard and if that doesn't work the internal "sdcard"?
