If you can flash other kernel you're boot loader is unlocked if not nothing will happen!

My friend,

My bootloader is locked so I know that nothing can be done and I know that.

My question is how do I put the phone into fastboot mode?

Hi,

I purchased Huawei G510 from Hong Kong (ebay) and the phone arrived today. It has no Google Play and I can't even install it as an apk file.

I have downloaded the Huawei Stock Firmware from this postand the EU Vodafone Stock Firmware from this post . How do I put the phone manually into software update mode?

Is it:

Option 1:

  • Copy the dload folder to the root of my SD Card
  • Press Volume up + Volume down + Power at the same time
  • Let the phone do its magic
or:

Option 2:
  • Copy the dload folder to the root of my SD Card
  • Press Volume up THEN Volume down THEN Power
  • Let the phone do its magic
OR can I use the recovery option in some way instead of this software update? Do I need to zip the dload folder for that?

Right now this phone has no gmail, no google play so its pretty much useless!

Is there any other way for me to apply the updates for the phone to become useable?

The current build version on my phone is T8951V100R001CHNC01B207

Thanks


Your model is Mediatek devices varian not QCOM.

Hi,

What does that mean in plain English? And how do I unlock the bootloader and flash the ROM and make the phone work?

It means it's completely different hardware!
It's based on mtk3xxx something bord!
This is if it's a dual sim model!
