Hello, on purchasing my G300 I downloaded and installed the [ICS] [REPACK] [4.0.3] B940 U8815 OTA release [ROM] found on this link:
http://www.modaco.co...ta-release-rom/

I'm wondering if there's now a better rom to use as a daily please?

Thank you & Merry Christmas

:)

Yes there is. Do you have CWM recovery installed?

Just look on these forums, there are many ROMs available (eg. Infusion and Stock+). Or try Jellybean: http://www.modaco.co...t-updated-1512/

By the way, you need CWM to install the above ROMs

S3 is just a Huawei rom modified. I'd recommend a vanilla Huawei if you want everything working but not very fast at most things like CM10.

Make your own S3 by installing the half working launcher that tries to copy the real S3 one. It makes the phone seem faster because it is so basic.

The CWM I just downloaded did not give me the option to back up my rom.

Many thanks for all your help :)

All versions of CWM (Clockworkmod) have the backup & restore option. If your recovery doesn't have it then you are using the stock recovery as supplied by huawei.

Thanks Cyda - that clears that up.

I tried to download the Frankish CWM on here http://huaweig300.co...rkmod-recovery/ but the link doesn't seem valid.

Use these CWM installation instructions below:

3. Installing Clockwork Mod Recovery.

Some users have had issues with flashing this so i have done some text editing of some of Pauls scripts for his root method to make a similar one click install for Clockwork Mod Recovery. I have bundled the latest version by Sebastian as of the 5th May 2012. So please first of all,

3a. Download this file first. Easy CWM Recovery Installer. Now extract the zip file to a suitable location. On your phone press Menu, Settings, Applications, Development. Make sure USB Debugging is enabled.

3b. Power off your phone and pull the battery. Replace the battery and power on your phone with the volume DOWN key pressed.

3c. your phone will now stick on the Huawei logo. Plug in your USB cable.

3d.

For WINDOWS - double click 'install-cwmrecovery-windows.bat'
For MAC - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-cwmrecovery-mac.sh' followed by './install-cwmrecovery-mac.sh'
For LINUX - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-cwmrecovery-linux.sh' followed by './install-cwmrecovery-linux.sh'.


3.e When finished, you can put your device in recovery mode by turning off the phone, pulling the battery and USB cable, wait a few seconds, replace the battery then turn on with the 'volume UP' button pressed to enter recovery.

Note that to navigate the menus you use the volume keys and the home button makes a selection. Back obviously goes back.

Thanks Cyda but I cannot find a working link in the External Link. In fact there's a nasty piece of software on one of the areas to d/load the file - I had to remove it from my pc via safemode.

If you or anyone has the file can you please upload it for me.

Thanks :)

It seems to install but on recovery mode I don't see back up or recover. Seems the stock hasn't been overwritten.

What an absolute pain.

CWM should look like this image below...note the backup and restore option.

If the CWM installer I linked didn't work it would normally show an error, did you see any error?

The hat logo would be CWM normally, you should be able to use the volume keys to move up and down and the home or power key to select/go back.

I can use the up and down buttons but no back up takes place. I'm used to seeing them on my old SF which I ditched for this phone.

My text is orange unlike yours which is blue.

Could this be linked to the rom: http://www.modaco.co...ta-release-rom/
