Hi!

I am wondering if instead of installing B952, unlock and reinstall the ROM, you could just reinstall the official bootloader, unlock it then reinstall CWM (of course it would only work with ICS stock based ROM)?

@hippy dave: then I volunteer to be the guinea pig because I am way too lazy to do the full reinstalls :D

@george109: maybe you could use a Live CD/USB? Adb works great on Linux too (I know this for a fact). Plus there is no need for a special USB driver.

I tried this http://www.modaco.co...de-release-rom/ didn't work since bootloader stays unlocked from previous time and plus CWM still there..I wasn't able to go thru process of unlocking at all..Then it got me that I still have CWM ( which means that bootloader is unlocked).So I just flashed B952 from Huawei official and everything's fine.Unlocked bootloader with no problems , checked it says unlocked..Then instead of installing new rom I recovered Slim form CWM (too lazy to install all back again)..so far no 3G reboots will monitor..

Just contacted huawei about that, and also asked them for the password, and I got it :)

Today I provided [email protected] with my imei and serial number and asked for a u8815/g300 bootloader unlock code. I also told them I was on the general release of b952.

I guess that should do it

If you get the unlock code what is the use of it? You unlock the bootloader and then what?
Simply you no longer have to hack the bootloader to install CWM? What is the profit out of it?

Hack unlock means that when you use 3G or HSPA sometimes you get random reboots. This should stop if you officially unlock it.

This is 100% for everyone? Cause i've checked the dev threads for known bugs and i haven't seen this mentioned, at least from OP.

Which rom you're using?Do you have any 3G reboots?If you don't have any then don't ask for unlock code because you don't need it..And yes mate this is like (3G reboots) NO.1 bug that stopping a lot of us of using better roms such as CM's..

Well not anymore in my case since unlock code from Huawei fixed that...:D

Guys I will definatly try one of the custom roms after I unlock bootloader. But I have one question.
Do I need to root phone before unlocking bootloader, or I can root it after bootloader unlocking??
Thanks :)

Well,can sb explain me,how could just slower net connection stop me from using cm,since with 2g only,there are no reboots(confirmed) and lesser battery drain(i cant compare,but it should be truth)?what are the needs for 3g?2sec faster loading web page?faster download speeds?ppl cmon ;) i believe that exchanging some net speed for cm is good deal,isnt it?i find this much better solution than hassling with bootloaders,basebands and all other more or less working options presented here on modaco,until dazzozo finds a way to unlock it "officially"..i believe he will manage it,somehow with his dark magic skills,they are awesome ;)

It's not just about net connection mate in my case ..Reason for 3G is better coverage as well which is my goal..2G is fine but sometimes it would loose signal due to poor connection ..with 3G there's no such issues ..I'm not sure it's just "2 sec" faster speed between 2G and 3G over here ..much better respond on 3G..



same here.

Something's up with Huawei again I guess since they sending this responds...

I dont know if it has been covered already but isn't it possible to backup an unlocked bootloader so that others can install it?

No, because the bootloader's the same. There's just something very early in the boot process that allows it to run unsigned code, officially. We have virtually no hope of getting that "something" out for general use.
