Yeah basically I want to remove that main screen thing and any software, graphics etc. associated with it.
I just want the pure and simple black background default Android screen thing and that's it... no fancy animated backgrounds, no big clocks or weather reports. If I want the weather report I'll just look outside the window.. lulz
Well you probably can long press on any of those apps/widgets and drag them to the trash can, leaving you with an empty screen.
You can also change your wallpaper to anything else you like, such as a black background.
And you can add any app or widget you like to the screen.
Is that what you mean?
I hope I understand what you want
You're talking about this one right? The default Android one?
The problem is this one (the whole thing):
It must be something Huawei added. Is it as simple as removing some pre-installed Huawei app?
It's kinda like having two different operating systems on my mobile, very confusing. It's got its own weird multi-workspace thing, the UX is horrible and it's impossible to set a plain black background. So whenever I wanna use the default Android screen, I first have to go through this thing and then press this button:
when in reality the only button I should have to relate to would be this one:

which is a physical button on my phone takes me to the Huawei desktop, whereas is a software button in my Huawei desktop which takes me to the default Android desktop. Or app drawer or whatever you wanna call it
o.k....humor me and long press on the weather widget..does an icon appear that looks like a trash can or a delete icon or something?
If so, you can drag it there to get rid of it, or take your finger off of the screen and nothing will change.
I have a similar problem with my HUAWEI G510-0100:
the custom Huawei home screen completely replaces standard Android application drawer!
Indeed, any time I install a new app, a warning message appears "shortcut already exists"; this is because there is NO application drawer on this phone, only a home screen: deleting an icon/app from the home screen results in uninstalling the app!
Or you can see it in another way: there is no home screen, only app drawer, so you can't create shortcuts to apps, you can only list ALL installed applications! From this point of view, it looks like the "home screen" is "compressed" in the lower bar, which can contain up to five icons, eache one can be just one app or a folder containing multiple apps.

Hi jumpjack, You have the Huawei Ascend model and although it's Huawei, I am not familiar with the model.
Have you tried the suggestions posted for wuggyf88?
Have you Posted your question in the Ascend Forum? Neil.
The Huawei Ideos X5 (U8800) seeks to offer the complete Android pacakge for a budget price. As such, don't expect the world in the specs department, but don't think this phone isn't fully capable. The Ideos X5 features an 800MHz CPU, 3.... Read More
