progress! Clark (and everyone else)... you're a genius. thanks!

so from 'black mode' I logged in to my Wi-Fi (as it's just got some rubbish old SIM in it...dont want to turn it off again.). Logged in to my Google account (foolishly didnt do that before) and some 'app updates' popped up.... dragging those down, I entered the Play Store and managed to download Nova Launcher

So it's looking good and functional right now :D. Anyway to download the original Huawei Launcher? Or to prevent this happening again? Now I just need to log out of my Google account and sell it...... No way I dare doing another factory reset

I want to sell it at CeX, but will it be enough to use it in front of them, to PROVE it works before they test it and somehow destroy it again?

CeX will require you to leave it for testing.  Don't say ANYTHING and you might get away with it.  Despite testing, CeX bought two phones from me, one of which was rooted and the other had broken wi-fi and MAC addresses.

I'm sure I've left a rooted phone (with custom ROM) with Cex before and they offered to buy it. Just I got a better deal on ebay so turned it down

 

I'm more concerned they'll test it again and return it to me broken

Do you really want to take that risk?  Sell it elsewhere if you can.

Not sure what other easy options I have. Ebay is too much hassle and fees. At least at CeX i can see online how much £££ I should be getting.

Zola is that the Huawei launcher? What's the best way to install it?

Just copy it to system/app, change permission to rw-r-r (644) & reboot the phone. System will do the rest!

thought I should fill in the final chapter here:

 

got it functional again.... CeX accepted it. Even gave me Grade A for it.

 

Success! Thanks to everyone for their help

If you ever happen to brick y300 I would of recommended going in to bootloader unlock the bootloader flash recovery then flash stock or custom ROM :) and it should be fine also search y300 root Tumblr I got guide to root, unlock bootloader etc... Off there

Result.  My local CeX has an A grade 16GB Blackberry Z10.  Very tempted to trade in both the G510 and my iPhone 4.  Decisions, decisions.

Hi. I have a rooted Huawei Y300 and just recently tried the Font installer *Root* app and installed a font. It asked my phone to reboot and I did, now it won't go pass the startup screen. What do can I do now? Help. Thanks.
