Even though my flash is hynix?Yeah,I certainly know the risk but it is worth trying.Now I am using cm10.1,I dare not using cm10.2 because the problem of flash. :(

The fix is in the nightlys. It should be working fine. If not, probably never will. New recovery doesn't built with the fix. You can use the last safe version (6.0.4.0). Probably recovery has the ext4 bug, but doesn't brick anyone's phone. (ext4 bug: https://github.com/D...15f9aee0e1a315)

Did anyone else get their phone back from Huawei? How long to wait?  Mine's gone to them since end of October :angry: .

 

 

EDIT: Got it back yesterday after it had gone all over the place. New motherboard. Vodafone UK logo as boot animation, but thankfully it is unlocked. ICS B960 is the OS. Got new IMEI.

Hello guys. This is my first post as a registered user but not my first time in her. Used to come as guest. My phone had the "hynix" mem and died after a rom flash (this one: http://www.modaco.co...hone back with "SJS00M" mem on it. I test it with the terminal (no cmw installed, with Huawei rom and locked bootloader). There was no cost for that service (Wind Hellas). Thank you for all the informations that you provide us.

I think he is saying thanks. He got the memory replaced. Anyway you're welcome (If I am wrong, correct me!)

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!  :)

Hello everyone,

I was very curious to know what kind of memory I have but when I enter this (cat /sys/class/block/mmcblk0/device/name) command line I get that it is not found. This is strange because when I type su and press enter it says superuser rights granted. I'm using atomicmod ROM running 2030 baseband.

If your G300 won't boot, try to put your G300 into freezer for 15 minutes without battery.
Then try to boot into recovery and back up all your data.
You have short time to do it. It worked for me for several times.
Now is definitly dead.
