Default Huawei Ascend Mate Root guide

* Do it at your own risk. I am not responsible for any damage that you've done to your phone.

Requirement:
- Huawei Ascend Mate phone stock
- Driver for the phone. If you don't have it down load it
https://www.dropbox.com/s/4qoacn4hqqw9h5v/WinDriver.exe

Root your phone:

- Enable ADB debugging on your phone
Go to Settings -> Developer options - > USB debugging and turn it on
- Download the package
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0pblr115dr2l4zt/MATE_ROOT.zip

- Unzip the package you downloaded and click on "open it ROOT_MATE)

- An MS DOS window appears then click any key to continue


your phone will reboot and wait for the MS window said "successful and enjoy it" and click any key to finish.


- Download this file
https://www.dropbox.com/s/omgdr4zkn224l9q/RootAssistantV2.0.apkand manually install it ( You must enable Unknown sources from your phone setting in order to install this file)

- After installing the file you will see the app with the wrench image click on it.



And you will see the Root option untick, tick it



Then the super user icon will show on your phone. That's it.


Install Google Play service on Huawei Ascend Mate:

Download the following zip file
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ubql19m4k7y15ab/play_store_huawei.zip and extract them, then copy them to the internal storage or external SD card on your phone.

Using the file manager and go to the folder where you copied the extracted file to your phone. Manually install the Google play service first then Google play store. Now you can access the Google play store.

Currently There is no custom recovery built for Huawei Ascend Mate, but you can install Google play store so that you can download apps. I updated the step to install Google play on the fist post. I hope it helps

It seems like you have an international ROM?
I just bought one from China, via **********, and found out it was on Chinese ROM, no way to add Google account. And there is no app drawer as shown in your post.
Any suggestions? (I'm already exhausted from searching in internet, and found out your site is the most valuable).

1. Rooting went flawlessly, but no superuser seen?
2. Google Play Store kept crashing. Even RootAssistant cannot update.

There is no other ROM than the original stock ROM from Huawei. I am using Apex launcher that's why I have app drawer. Follow the stesp to install Google Play store manually then you can access the store

1. Did you install root assistant? Then just open the app and check ROOT option. the super user icon may be created on your other screen than the home screen.

2. I have also encountered the stop functioning error message but after a few reboots, It worked or you can try to install the google play store V 4.0.

Hello everyone, I am new to the forums and I had a question about the awesome Mate. I just imported it and am using it in the US on the ATT network getting 3G service on it. The only problem I have been encountering is that I am not able to send or receive image texts using the network. I am able to get images through watsapp and 3rd party messaging services, but not through the phones messaging app or through the official ATT text app. Can anyone help me out. I can go online, and have also updated Play store to 4.0, and the Amazon Marketplace app for android apps, all work fine, just no pic. texts. I have rooted the phone and am wondering if that could possibly be any part of the problem.

Thanhdang, thank you so much for the APN settings, it still doesn't work tho. I did call tech support and they were not willing to help with APN settings, losers. Anyways, it is weird because I can receive images thru 'watsapp' app but not thru the texting app of the phone.

The error message will disappear after a few times after Google play app updates itself and download necessary files to function properly.

Another options, which work pretty well.
Go to ROM -

I did up the ROM by k_l_ALL without any problem.
Google translate can help those who don't understand Chinese.

Did you try to wipe data and cache from recovery as a member satawat suggested?

I did! I went into app manager > Google Play and I cleared cache, data, and force stop. Rebooted and nothing.

I'm trying numerous versions of the Play store and this happens for all versions!

You have to wipe data and cache from recovery not from app manager.

To get into recovery mode, hold and press volume down and up button at the same time then press the power button. When the Hussein logo shows on screen, release the power button but keep pressing the up and down button until you see the green Droid robot.

:-( I'm getting really scared now! I just did that, and still nothing. It wiped the phone clean, but left superuser installed and removed Play Services and Play Store.

I installed the Pay Services, then Play Store.. and still crashes on me :-(

The only thing that you can do is installing Google play and service. Let it crash a few times but do not uninstall it. Leave it like that and tomorrow morning try to run it and it should work :-). I know it sounds weird but at least it worked for me.

Anyone who knows how to fix this error please help him and other users who run into this error.

Thanks! I am trying the whole process over again. installing the ROM posted on Huawei's site, rooting, and will install the services.

Quick question, did you download the latest version of Google Play, or just what was in the original post above?

Quick question, did you download the latest version of Google Play, or just what was in the original post above?
I have installed Google play 3.7 something at first. Although Google play was crashed when I tried to run it but it I saw on the notification bar it showed update available for some apps.. I was hopeless and thought something was wrong with the rom but it worked a few hours later.

Not until Huawei releases an update, or we can get someone to release a custom ROM.

Changes of custom ROMs being released for this phone are slim to none. At least that's my impression since this phone's main client is Chinese users.

Sorry for all the posts people and being annoying, but I have finally figured out a much better way to get Google apps installed vs. dealing with this Google Play store crashing all the time.

Once you are rooted, you'll have to acquire a root file explorer such as ES File Explorer. Since you can't yet use the Play Store, you'll have to download the ES File Explorer from their official website:
estrongs.com Download page

1. Download and install the device on a file manager that can work with the system folders. For example, Root Explorer or ES File Explorer.
2. Download the Google Apps procedure for each version Android OS. GApps for Android 4.1 JB can be downloaded at this link. For other versions of Android - here .
3. To copy a file from GApps to the communicator and unzip it.
4. Copy the files from the archive into the appropriate system folder on the internal memory of your device. After copying every file immediately change the permissions for the file, so that later no problems when working with data applications. How it's done in Root Explorer: Long tap on the file-> Permissions-> Put all the checkboxes in the column reading and the first tick in the column writing (letter D). [Permissions: rw-r - r -]
Reboot the device.
Installing GoogleApps completed.

Good stuff up there PowerMan572 .

The newest version of ES File Explorer is very nice. They keep adding features and tweaking the UI.

Note: I edited your post above to include a link to the estrongs.com download area for their official .apk file. This should be much safer for all than having folks find a possibly sketchy copy of that .apk.

Best of luck to all and thanks again for your help to all the folks in here!

Just an FYI everyone-- the B116 update is now out. You can check via your phone's settings.

Whenever my download completes and tries to restart and install the update, it always fails. (B115 failed too). So I'm just waiting for Huawei to post it on their website so I can download the complete file and update it that way.

Do other people's phones fail when restarting? It verify's the package, but for some reason I always get some E:\ error message.

Try viewing the /cache/recovery/log file...that should contain any information about what issues might have arisen in the update installation (failed asserts, etc.).

There might also be a /cache/recovery/last_log file, too, that might be interesting.

edit: it would be best to view them as soon after the failed installation as you can.

Seemed rooted phone will not available for OTA anymore , need to (download 800+ MB whole rom and) upgrade via SD card only...

Suggested to wait until root version or version with "google play" released

From google translator , this version will improved WIFI using , cached reduction and various screen forced closed , some users still complained about touch screen and additional bugs , pls consider before upgrade. thnx
