So to put things straight, the phone was running Stock 4.0 just fine, and I went ahead trying to root it. It was going well but I accidentally hit something in the recovery which I couldn't read the language of (The method I was following was this http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2037582 )
Now, the phone seems bricked... It is stuck on the Huawei Ascend boot screen (no animation) it has been stuck here for a few hours. Holding the power button down turns it off, but the phone powers itself back on immediately after, and attempting to go into recovery simply does not work. I also am unable to remove the battery until I find a new screwdriver... I am currently waiting for the phone to die in hopes it can boot to recovery... but does anyone have any tips? Thanks.
