hi there, I am now on PAC rom R12 and I cannot install R13 either R14 or Slim 3.1, when I try to install recovery says:
Extracting system
symlink: some symlinks failed
E: error in / (rom .zip location)
(Status 7)
Installation aborted

Help needed! I have made all the necessary wipes before trying to install new rom.

rebooting recovery under 'advanced' settings helped :)

What version of the recovery do you have?
So, if you boot to recovery, it will say:
CWM based recovery 6.0.2.7
(for example)

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!

Did I help you?

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

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

I seriously recommend upgrading to ,6.0.2.7 Touch Recovery, as the old one has a lot of bugs. Also it has a lot of improvements like IMEI Backups.

You could also try TWRP, as it is a lot easier to use, compared to CWM.
