[G6-U00] [ROM] 4.4.2 with EMUI 3.0 and dual SIM support for Huawei Ascend G6-U00

Hi,

 

This is a mod of an Android 4.4.2 ROM featuring EMUI 3.0 and dual SIM support for Huawei Ascend G6-U00. The ROM is based on the B322 firmware update as is a significant improvement over an earlier 4.4.2 version that had Caller ID and other issues. I no longer have time to work on this ROM (I simply need my G6 for work) so I am posting it as is in hope someone might feel like polishing it further, or simply download and use.

The ROM works flawlessly. Rooted. No GApps (can be flashed separately), although Google Play framework is present.

Serious issues:

  • None noticed.

Minor issues:

  • A 3G/4G switch is present in Settings but, naturally, don't expect 4G to work on a 2G/3G-only phone - the max you will get will be HSPA+ irrespective of the switch setting.
  • The original FlyIME Chinese/Latin keyboard is the only one bundled. Other keyboards can surely be downloaded from Play Store or flashed. A few attempts to add Google keyboard to the ROM failed but maybe someone with more knowledge feels like incorporating e.g. the AOSP keyboard in the ROM and remove 40+ MB FlyIME (and all its subfolders)?
  • A few unnecessary .so files might have remained in /system/lib after junk apps were deleted. They have no impact on the system performance but feel free to inspect and remove them as appropriate.
  • Kinguser app for root management. I did not succeed with replacing it with Superuser or SuperSU on my previous version of a similar ROM and now did not have time (nor motivation) to experiment with this ROM. Kinguser works well, though. It is not the latest version but will update itself on the first run.
  • Google boot animation is for a different resolution and will benefit from replacing.

Remember to clean wipe/format all internal partitions before installing!

By far this is the best ROM I have had on G6-U00, and if someone took an hour or two to polish out the minor issues above, this would make it an ultimate ROM for this G6-U00.

Download:

394 MB only (and with a bit of TLC can be weaned by another 20-50MB I guess).

i've downloaded the .zip in the root of my internal memory --> recovery mode, but it doesn't work.

Any suggestion?

Did you try to flash it using TWRP Recovery or CWM Recovery?

For some reason I don't managed to install the zip-file or backup my ROM neither with CWM/TWRP/Helium...

Everytime it reboots on recovery page, but there is no options like "backup or similar" in there.

Can you suggest me another system to backup and then flash the rom? Maybe with ADB

Thanks for your time Kashmiri

Marco

 

EDIT

I've found this helpfull tutorial, I try!

In TWRP, just go to Install --> Install ZIP from SD Card.

Just check whether it works, then do it once again but after wiping all partitions.

"Backup" is a different option and is of no use when flashing a ROM.

even if I try your advice it does not work for me...

TWRP, CWM, Flashify...they don't flash anything. Neither if I go in factory mode and I try installing update from sd: I obtain an error after unpackging the zip-file.

Is there a method through pc? (I use ubuntu and I am a little skilled with terminal).

Thank you,

Marco

Flashify? I have no experience with flashing via an app.

By TWRP and CWM I mean recovery programs that need to be installed on the recovery partiction and can be run at boot time (instead of the operating system); and not Android apps (they never worked for me). Just like in the screenshots returned when googling for "TWRP".

Yes, a ROM can normally be flashed via ADB (which uses USB connection). Phone has to be rooted.

You tried to flash the entire ROM to recovery partition, which is incorrect.

I took a look at the ROM and realised it cannot be flashed via fastboot, sorry! The reason is, it does not contain images for each partition but the folder structure, so it is meant to be flashed using recovery (TWRP or CWM).

But as you are at fastboot now, why don't you flash CWM Recovery right away?

Because I don't understand what I have to do 

When do you talk about "flashing CWM recovery" what do you men?

Have I to download a CWM recovery for my Ascend G6-U00 and flash it? If yes, I don't managed to find the correct file for my phone.

Thanks for your patience!

  1. downloaded a custom recovery 6.0.5.0
  2. flash it
  3. now I see only flashboot menu (not the recovery)
  4. even if I try to boot the recovery with flashboot I get this error:
[email protected]:~$ sudo fastboot boot recovery.img 
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  0.284s]
booting...
FAILED (remote: dtb not found)
finished. total time: 0.367s

 

i feel like into a dead end...

You just tried to boot from recovery.

The syntax is:

fastboot flash [partition to be flashed] [image file]

Recovery software has to be flashed to recovery partition, not to boot partition! It's rather intuitive: boot files go to "boot" partition, recovery software goes to "recovery" partition, Android system goes to "system" partition, and so on.

So, in order to flash custom recovery, you should have entered:

[email protected]:~$ sudo fastboot flash recovery recovery.img 

That of course assuming that the device is rooted.

Likely you don't even need to use sudo.

I think I've done a damage.

I've flashed a recovery image, but it doesn't work. So I flash into the boot partition and the phone doesn't restart.

Then I unzip the boot image into your zip file and I flash it into boot partition.

Now I don't even succeed in starting into fastboot from the cellphone.

Have you got an idea?

Thank you

Why on earth did you flash ANYTHING into boot partition??? Boot is sacred, don't touch it if you don't know how to recover.

Recovery software (image file) should ONLY be flashed to the recovery partition, NEVER anywhere else.

Entering recovery software is done by turning the phone off, then pressing POWER + VOLUME UP for 10 seconds, if software has been flashed correctly it has no right not to work.

ROM should ONLY be flashed from within the recovery software.

I am not sure what you can do.

I think I have screwed up...

I was frustrated, because I try many different recovery.img, but none works.

Unfortunately now I don't managed to enter recovery mode with volume up + power, I see only the Huawei logo for few seconds then it disappears...

What can I say, I've found other posts where files that I've downloaded don't work for me.

I'm a very newbie in flashing rom and I've been too hasty.

In your opinion is there other options to try or have I bricked my phone?

thank you

I've done a list usb and I see my phone:

[email protected]:~$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 007: ID 12d1:1038 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. Ideos (debug mode)

Moreover I notice that also adb seems to recognize the device:

[email protected]:~$ sudo adb devices
List of devices attached 
2008ed62e6d0	device

but I can't send no data/command to the phone.

Maybe there is something else that I can try...

Update:

I've downloaded Ascend G6-U10's original firmware from Huawei's site and, applying "ds load" method, this is what I obtain (see attachment).

Now I would gently know which is the best thing to do in order to repair the phone.

Where can I find the right files for my phone (U00)?

Regards,

Marco
