I would recommend go backup from the play store as it now has the 200mb limit removed (free app)

What? Does this mean that you can backup your apps and their save data, and then restore them in the new ROM?

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

TWRP allows you to update to 4.2.2 as well. Didn't you know that?

I would use this one, http://www.ebay.co.u...=item19d85a1c94, as they are a top rated seller and they have 99.8% positive feedback.


I used saqkh on eBay to unlock my g300 about 2 weeks ago and thought it was a great service.

Nope never knew OTA updates for JB would work on TWRP. I've only ever used CWM.

@seamie, no need to make a list as all the apps you have ever installed on your phone should be listed in the play store itself. Just open play store, press the menu button, select My Apps then slide to right under the heading "All", and everything you've installed is listed there.

Along with the other suggestions I'll add carbon to the list off backup apps. Although I've found that some apps don't like to be recovered, so I've still had to re-download them when trying a new roms. http://www.modaco.co...y-clockworkmod/

The carbon instruction says:
1. Install Carbon on Android
a) Root user? You're done!

Does it mean that I have to unlock the phone first ?

Also use Settings/backup and reset/... check "backup my data" and "Automatic Restore"

Google servers are supposed to know your Apps and Data and should restore after reset.

But if you change ROM or device it don't work, in my experience.

But it might!!

Wait a minute - I thought I need to buy unlock code (Ebay) to have it sim unlocked.
Can I install cm 10.1 without unlocking the phone ?

Yes ... Unlocking your phone to use any Sim card from Vodafone, BT GiffGaff etc is not required to install any rom.
