  1. When I try to flash this it fails. TWRP says "Error executing updater binary in zip". Any ideas? I'd like to try this rom!
  2. Can anybody share with me the apk for the launcher that comes on the stock ROM? Or provide a link? I can't find the correct version online! Thanks in advance

  4. I would second this. I want to put my phone back to stock and need a flash-able .zip of the untouched original if somebody would be so kind as to provide it (and assuming it's possible?) Thanks
  5. I've tried that but I just get the pink screen (download mode?). Did I read a while back that this method only works if the rom that you're trying to flash is a newer version, ie it won't 'update' to an earlier version? I've tried lots of roms and the status bar disappears a lot on them all. I'm just trying to get a stable rom if anybody has any suggestions? Thanks in advance
  6. I've used a few different custom ROMs that I've flashed with TWRP but I'd now like to revert to stock. I haven't got any backup of the original ROM. How can I revert back to stock? When I download the firmware from the Huawei site it just gives me a zip file with the UPDATE.APP (IIRC) file. Can I use that to flash with TWRP or not? Thanks in advance
  7. I didn't need a password in the end. I used 7-zip rather than WinZip and it didn't as for the password
  8. Yeah bick I was thinking earlier about trying a few custom ROMs to see what's what! I've only ever messed with an older version of android before and I've had boot loop so many times (on the same phone) but I've always been able to flash it with no problems. That was ages ago now though and I must admit I felt a bit out of my depth here.
  9. Thanks for the help guys. I've flashed TWRP and installed the FusionX ROM and it's working again! I may look at reverting to a stock ROM in the near future but I'm happy to have a usable phone again!
  10. In all honesty I haven't got a clue! I've just unlocked the bootloader though, does that mean I can now flash a custom ROM? Does that eliminate the need to know the original firmware version?
  11. That all sounds promising jackosterman! Could I trouble you in pointing me in the direction of more information/instructions on how to go about these things? I've read a lot in the last 12 hours and a lot of it is now blurring into one! How do I go about unlocking the bootloader when the phone is in its current state? Did I read somewhere that I need some information from the phone to get a bootloader unlock code from huawei?
  12. Thanks for the replies. I have managed to unzip the official ROM from the link I put up, although sticking that on the SD card and using the phone to update fails. What are my options? Am I going to be able to flash a stock ROM using ADB or something similar? Like I say I can get into recovery mode on the phone. Thanks again
  13. Hi I've got a Huawei Ascend Y300 which I decided to root last night. I used the method described here using the files from that page too, and it all went fine. I was installing some font packs afterwards which required me to reboot, after a few times it got stuck on the boot screen. I'm now not able to get it back up and running. I tried the same method as I originally used to root (putting the same files in 'dload' on the sd card and restarting with both vol buttons held), that goes through and says update ok, but it still hangs at the boot screen. I've tried downloading an original ROM from huaweidevice.com (HUAWEI Y300 firmware(Y300-0100,Android 4.1,Emotion UI,V100R001C00B175,General Version) but when I try to extract the .zip it says it's password protected, I'm sure I'm doing something wrong! Can anybody talk me through fixing this? I can get the phone on the pink screen (download mode? although I can't access it from the computer), and also into recovery mode. I've got a card reader so I can transfer files onto the phone that way. If you need any more info then please ask! Thanks in advance.
