Evening all, bit of a lurker but could do with some help.

I got my a sister a G300 abiut 4 months ago that came with Vodafone GB installed, folling a guide on here I got it running B934 repacked. Its being running fine until today, now I cant even get the phone to boot up. I'm sure that part of the upgrade process meant this phone has an unlocked bootloader and is rooted, I can boot into CWM but not a lot is happening when I try to reflash the B934 Rom, I've also tried to install other Roms downloaded from various threads on here but none seam to work.

Anyone got any ideas?

Download the latest ICS rom from huawei's official site, and drop the 'dload' folder onto the root of your external SD card. Then take out the battery, put it back in, and turn on the phone while holding Vol +/- simultaneously. A pink bar should show up, and once it progresses to the end, the phone should boot. You may loose root, and CWM, and you will need to unlock the bootloader again.

Hi I tried that and it stops at about 30%.

It seems I'm having the same issue as the guy from this thread, looks like theres no way to sort it out myself

Sorry, link fail in my last post. This is the link I was talking about http://www.modaco.co...ge__hl__bricked


I've tried forcing updates using dload on the SD card but it always fails and I've tried flashing a zip via CWM, nothing seems to work, I think its a damaged hardware problem.

It hangs at about 50% and will go no further, any other ideas?

Try with this B926 http://www.huaweidev...softid=NDE4NjY=
same procedure like I explained first: put U8815 rom downgrade upgrade.zip extracted to dload folder on SD card and flash it (remove battery and turn on phone holding volume + and volume - buttons)
delite content in dload folder and put in dload folder UPDATE.APP extracted from link up. (remove battery and turn on phone holding volume + and volume- buttons)
It should install without any problems wit this method.

Hope it helps!
