Here is the procedure for restoring the Huawei Ascend II back to stock.

Credit to vadim at PPA for finding and posting the files.

These instructions are taken directly from the PDF file bearing the instructions, which should also be in the file containing the stock ROM.

WARNING! This will wipe all data previously on your phone!

  1. Download the zip file with the stock ROM, and unzip it. LINK
  2. Copy the "dload" folder to the root of your SD card. This folder should have "" inside it.
  3. Power off, then press Vol Down + Vol Up + Power. The installation should take place automatically. When "Upgrade Complete" appears on the screen, Pull the battery and the SD card from your phone.
  4. Replace your battery and boot the phone. This step may take a few minutes.
  5. Once fully booted, reinsert your SD card and delete the "dload" folder. You're done!
Will this work for MetroPCS users too? I have a MetroPCS phone that I updated the Android 2.2.2 OS from their @pp store but I was wondering if I could change it back to Android 2.1 since I'm having issues with the camera settings. If you can please help me out so I won't have to pay someone to do this for me, I would gladly appreciate it! Thank you!
