My father has changed his mobile so I'm going to use his Hauwei Ascend G300, it currently has Gingerbread installed and I'm looking to flash a custom rom on it and I'm a bit stuck, wondered if anyone could and be willing to give me a hand.


I've been following this guide:

http://huaweig300.co...m-from-scratch/


And I'm currently stuck at this point:

http://huaweig300.co...-and-update-...


I downloaded the b952 update zip and extract it to the SD Card and try and tell the phone do the update as the guide says but it justs reboots the mobile.....


Anyone got any ideas or pointers?


My baseband is 109808, B895

Gingerbread is far faster than ics. I advice you not to upgrade.

Tried installing from the SD Card as the guide I'm following suggests .... doesn't work, the phone just reboots.

My intention is to install a custom rom, I'm just following the guide I linked to in my opening post, as I understand from the guide, I need to do this step.

What do you find is faster? opening apps or homescreen scrolling?

You could always try turning off the phone, taking out the battery and then putting it back in after 10 seconds. Then hold volume up AND down at the same time. Then hold power. You should see a screen with a pink bar.
Also I would recommend staying on gingerbread, they are the only good stock ROMs

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 :)

:excl:A WARNING TO ALL G300 OWNERS! Please Read! (The Flash Memory Problem!) :excl:

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!

Spoiler

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!  :)

I have tried that also, I get a pink screen rather than a bar and it stays like that - I have to take the battery out again to reboot the phone again.

As stated previously, it was my intention to install a custom ROM, but have resigned myself to staying with GB, not because I want to because I have no other choice unless I buy a new device or can determine what the problem is here :(

Yes I know that .. I've been using a G300 for the past few days, I have now gone back to using a Lumia 800 which I used before the G300.
