Hi I'm new to this forum first post yesterday when I was able to unlock the bootloader I can now go into recovery Vol+ & Power and I see the droid open waiting for surgery!

 

I used this link: http://huaweinews.co...ot-huawei-g510/ as the next step  and download the file to get the root package is this correct? When I booted into recovery after adding the file UPDATE.APP I had a list of options do I choose "apply update from ADB" ?

 

I'm hoping to eventually use Kit Kat 4.4.2 is this the right step above with that in mind? Does applying ADB allow me to then put CWM recovery on I'm confused now? or do I just put CWM recovery straight on?

 

Thanks and sorry as I guess you get this all the time.

 

Please help someone

Try downloading the img again and put it in the same folder with adb. Then try to flash it.....Or the easier way is to flash the zip file with TWRP via CWM. No ideea why you flashed cwm in the first place...

Thanks for coming back to me mockingbird appreciated to be honest I don't even think I did flash CWM it looks like all the time I put in yesterday and today I was getting stuck on parts of the boot loader and rooting. I finally only rooted it this afternoon as I saw it do the install and can see it installed superuser.

You've confused me now though as I thought you only need one or the other back up recovery programs TWRP or CWM

You need only one of them , TWRP , you can forget about CWM. What I was saying is that, you can change from CWM to TWRP, by flashing the zip file with the img inside in your current recovery. (exeption being stock)

Am I right in thinking the following

 

Recovery is where you place the file onto you external micro SD card and flash it via the interface that you use the Vol - & + and pwr button

 

Fastboot you use windows and command prompt?

Thanks mockingbird its all done. You have been a great help. I also decided to download those Google apps and installed them and all is well.

however its given me hangouts for SMS and I can't get my head around it how do it get the original SMS service?

The others thing is on the task bar where you drag box down with all the settings how do you get it to show your Google photo when I touch it it tries to open a page fails and it just goes to home screen
