Follow this guide to get to ICS: http://huaweig300.co...-your-baseband/
I know its for a custom ROM, but you just need to follow this page, as the steps are exactly the same. Hope this helps you :)

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:

Spoiler

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!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

(If not, Press it anyway!)

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)

After I have updated to B895 it will not see any updates at all. It will update from B882 all the way up to B985 but then it does not see the update for ICS :unsure:

Download this force update. (Its the same as the email). http://www.mediafire...u/Force_Update
Its a split archive (because of Mediafire limits, and Solidfiles will not upload!) so put the files in the same folder!! Then extract them, and copy and paste the dload folder to the root (top folder level) of the SD Card.

Verify the extracted update.app with this hash generator. The Hashes are:
MD5: d1f97fc94d92e1d687504f6becc18d1c
SHA1: af20acf3d79249bbb3ce938d96b7a4e059bd1005

What I ended up doing was... Updated to B936 Vodafone OTA update. With the understanding that if i don't get a B952 update ota I could degrade back down to Ginger Bread no sweat and go for a deeper look of why it was not recieving any ota updates.

are you trying to get the vodafone OTA update to ICS? its been removed. so anybody on stock gingerbread can no longer "officially" upgrade to ICS. check the relevant thread on vodafone forums:

So I brought a brand new phone on GB and Vodafone are know not releasing the update to ICS. Glad am not a Vodafone customer because I have to say it is the they the biggest waste of spacer ever as far as customer services and customer updates ...

Plus why would i send it to a repair centre to get it updated Lol Beats me...
