  1. Thanks for your help & info. First off, I might follow george109's steps to install the OEM bootloader unlock first before doing anything else as I've had a few random reboots for no apparent reason. Just waiting (up to) 3 days on Huawei replying to my 'unlock bootloader' password request. I'll use the time to decide whether I really want to procede with it or just stick another Rom on the 300 as it is.
  2. Thanks dalyer, it's been nearly a year since I last put a rom on my g300 so I'm a bit rusty. I just seem to remember extracting all files (root, etc,.) to desktop and running from there via the Windows command prompt, with the phone connected. Is this version of CWM much better than the I have on the phone at present? I need to read up on TWRP tonight as I haven't a clue what it is. Presumably an altermative to CWM?
  3. Should there be an image file inside the Zip download? I thought there would just be an .exe file I could just click on to install via my PC connected to the phone. :unsure:
  4. Just recovered from sleeping in a field in Somerset at the weekend and saw your PM and this post. I haven't manage to find the original Blade Rom so far, not surprised to find all original links are dead.
  5. They are indeed, just when I wanted to revert my old Blade to it's original Orange UK stock rom. (the P729BV1.0.0B05 version)
  6. Thanks for the zip youngsta but unfortunately it didn't work. I tried it 3 times. I got the following via ClockworkMod Recovery v5.0.2.0 when I ran the file; Finding update package... Opening update package... Installing update... Installation aborted. I suppose I could open another Google account and download it to the phone again but then I still have the problem of not being able to open it when the phone has booted because of it's frozen screen. I'm 90% sure that I changed to Gen 2 prior to putting on a new Rom about 9 months ago. If I didn't though, do I run a risk of bricking it if I try to install a Gen 2 Rom on top of a Gen 1 phone? Thanks for any info. :)
  7. Help anyone? I've just dug out my old OSF/Blade and I need to get MrPigfish to verify if my old Blade is Gen 1 or 2 but my Blade screen is frozen on bootup. (possibly a faulty digitizer screen) and the Market/Play Store won't let me download it as it states my Blade already has it installed, though I obviously can't access it. At least I have access to CWM on the phone and I'm hoping I can transfer the apk across using the below method. Is their a non Play Store download from anywhere else that I can then transfer to the phone by putting it on the SD card, to run the .apk from there using CWM? The .rar link up top in this thread is not valid anymore. Thanks.
  8. Just noticed your post, so you may have found a solution by now. If not, try 'Old Phone Ringtone' from the Play Store. :)
  9. You will either have to find a seller who will accept payment in a way suitable to you or take a chance and ask a kind member from this site to do it for you by paying them upfront somehow and then providing your IMEI when payment has cleared. I'm not volunteering by the way. :)
  10. ^^^^^ It'll certainly do me as an intro to start messing about with my G300. Thanks dp. :)
  11. specialize = eBay Item number: 170861571818 - Buy It Now = £5.75 2 minutes ago. He started charging £7.48(?) as an introductory price and then crept upwards but the highest I remember him charging was about £8.98 but that was when he had the market to himself back in April/May.
  12. Does this mean that once again, people who are not interested whatsoever in farcebook or twatter are excluded from a competition? PS. I'm not sure if I was entered once by simply filling in my email, prior to those 4 other 'social' media tabs appearing.
  13. I need a pee more than a pi at this point in time. Gotta dash for that splash.
  14. I actually have one of these 'slip pouches' for my San Fran and though the SF has a nice non slip surface in the hand, it can easily slip out of this type of case if your not careful. Now, I only use it as a screen protector whilst in my pocket as it wouldn't offer much protection in a fall. I feel the Ascend is very slippery in the hand and would just shoot out of one of these slip cases. You really need the type with a clasp over the open end to stop the phone sliding out inadvertently. PS. Frankie, that looks like a very nice hard cover.
  15. Oh dear! Just noticed that Specialized has upped the price for unlocking the Ascend by a quid to £9.48.
  16. No, I didn't reboot after entering the details but I also didn't reboot after entering the two dots .. solution from Frankish, yet that worked straight away without rebooting. :) I forgot to check his phone but can't now as he's gone back to Uni today after his Easter break. :)
  17. Davidoff, If you're replying to my post above, I didn't see any APN's on the phone when it arrived. (all the fields were blank) This Huawei G300 was ordered online and didn't come with a £10 sim so I guess the Vodafone APN was not pre-entered. Maybe I just didn't notice it though so I'll check it again tomorrow.
  18. I'll try that Frankish but I thought the letters entered into the field box changed automatically to dots as you entered each one. PS. I don't believe it! 2 little dots worked, thanks Frankish. The T-Mob site info is rubbish.
  19. That's exactly what I put in but still no joy. Network signal OK on my San Fran so must be something on the phone.
  20. Received my unlock from Specialized today and my son is now one happy fella with an unlocked phone. Now I just need to search for a method to get his APN settings on to the phone automatically. Oddly, everything transferred itself from the sim onto the phone apart from the 3G internet setting thingy. :)
  21. I've not used giffgaff, though I was going to 18 months ago when the San Fran phone was launched but went for T-Mobile at the time who introduced a very good Sim only deal with 500 mins, 600 texts, 'unlimited' data (3Gb) and a bolt on (unlimited landline or unlimited texts) for £7.50 a month. I couldn't turn that down and they also renewed the deal for a 2nd year. Hopefully, they'll offer it again come October. I like the fact that giffgaff don't tie you down to a contract and you can tailor your 'bags' to suit your needs. Good luck with whatever you choose. PS. Should have stated that I don't think new customers can get that deal any more.
  22. Bummer. :( At least you tried another potential source on our behalf. :) I was holding off for your response and ordered an unlock from 'specialize' as soon as I read your post as my son was getting impatient to 'use' his phone instead of just exploring it. Thanks for trying.
  23. Oops, wrong post quoted!!! Liam, I believe it is the Huawei U8815. It's also in various thread titles in this phones forum. Double check to be sure though.
  24. This might suit you instead of a different back cover. My son chose the black one for his G300. He sensibly decided to get it for more grip as the G300 is a slippery little bu**er. Takes between 13 & 25 days to get here though. Soft Jelly TPU Cover Case + LCD Screen Protector For Huawei Ascend G300 PS. It was ordered on Sunday and dispatched on Monday, not too bad so far. Probably surface mail though.
