Laugh Huawei Fusion (U8652) Roms, C7 mod & root!

Hello!

I just bought two of these phones about a week ago from walmart and there seems to be very little information about hacking this phone. The most information I have been able to find out is from the spanish forums.

First thing that you want to do is root your phone. I have done this twice with this method and it has worked great both times.


1) ROOTING YOUR FUSION:

This is the method that worked for me. It was already stated in another thread on this forum:

QUOTE from : charliedrums....

"Here is what I did: (this tutorial was done by sd_james over at xda developers)
1. You need to install the latest Android SDK (search google for latest version)

2. download SuperOneClick v2.3.3

3. Follow the instructions and make sure that you have set your Settings > Development > USB Debugging box checked. I also set Unknown sources checkbox on.

4. Type in the following code on the phone keypad

*#*# 2846579 #*#*

This will open up the Service Mode
Go to Project Menu > Background Settings > Log Settings
Turn on Log Switch and set Log Level Settings to Verbose

go back one screen

Go to Dump and Log and place a check in all log settings.

Reboot the phone

After reboot use superoneclick2.3.3
In superoneclick on the general tab click the root button and wait for it.

This is what worked for me.""


2) After your root, you want to install the Clockwork mod for this phone. (To do the back up for your rom and also install this will enable you to install custom Roms for this phone.)

To do this you must:

TURN off the phone. Install the drivers for your computer so that the phone will be recognized. \

Driver download:

http://www.multiupload.com/CONZ9XQJNF

You also want to download the clockwork mod:

http://www.mediafire.com/?irr4cc14xy9ygs9.

Once you download the drivers and the clockword mod. Run "instalador.bat" Press any key and it will say "waiting for device."

Turn off your phone and connect the USB cable (**MAKE SURE DRIVERS WORK (AKA YOU CAN USE THE USB FILE TRANSFER TO SD, ETC**)

The instalador.bat command prompt should recognize your phone and install a custom file on the phone that will enable a custom recovery boot if you press volume down +power for 10 seconds (while phone is off)

3) Installing rom

There are many roms for the U8650 sonic. This is the father model for the U8652. It seems there is no difference in the firmware in regards to updating it via roms.

The ROM that I am currently using is CyanogenMod-7.2.0 - benru89 v3.0 - FM Radio, Android 2.3.7..

It seems very stable. The theme looks great and even upgraded my android version from 2.3.4 to 2.3.7. HBO Go works now!!

Here is the link to this file from the spanish forum..

http://www.mediafire.com/?mmguyca0yz5iip6

You want to install this file on the root of your sd card.


4) Installing the ROM

Turn off the phone. Press power +volume down for 10 seconds. This will boot the phone in recovery mode. Delete the user data/ data cache/ dalvik cache.

Choose the option to install from sd card and choose the zip that you just downloaded.

Wait for the install to complete.. and Viola! Now you have the fusion rooted & with a custom rom with Cynogen 7.2! I have 82mb ram free and only 3-4mb used on my system data.

The phone flies through anything now!


I hope this post was useful to someone.. It took me a few days to find out what to do and to research everything..

BTW..GrooveIP is awesome!! I can make/recieve free calls & txt via Google Voice at no charge!!

Nice recap there, however the mutiupload link to the drivers is dead ( at least for me) and I never downloaded it so I don't have it to reupload.

I use a modified version of the Benru v2 as it has been more stable for me but I am always looking. Some of the turkish roms are looking promising. If you are going to stick around a while and are obviously also looking at non-english sources,maybe we should do a rom spotlight sort of thing every week or two for folks coming here. Share our opinions which I hope will differ to some degree. Let me know.

That sounds like a great idea. I will create a new thread that will have screenshots of the phone's vitals (ram, memory, apps, etc)

I will also try to review it based on comparison to the Stock Rom.

So far it seems far superior in almost all ways. I will try to write it up today or tommorrow when I have some free time.

Maybe you could do a similar review of the Rom that you're using?

I found a few other ROMs that looked promising. One was an ICS theme.

I'll let you know what I found out


Same goes for you too, u8652 rooted

Thanks for sharing this. My initial problem was that my recovery image was broken (current latest cwm recovery doesn't boot on the U8652), but now you fixed that and got me on CM.

FYI, the "About Phone" shows CM 7.1.0.
I read that there is a way to correct the displayed phone "Model number" from U8650 to U8652. If you correct this in wherever ROM settings file it is, and maybe even the bootup image - I'd be interested in learning how to do this.

The only odd behavior I've found so far is that I can't seem to boot to recovery without having the USB cable plugged in. Also if the USB is connected and I reboot - the phone regularly goes to the recovery menu even if I did not hold any buttons.

That would be the build.prop file in the system folder of the rom. Simple change but purely cosmetic.

Nice tutorial. I Installed the CyanogenMod-7.2.0 - benru89 v3.0 but I can’t connect to at&t 3g data network. Is it a setting I must enable to get my data working again?

EDIT:
Hey I forgot to mention. I’m from Puerto Rico so my native language is Spanish. If you guys need some translation of any of the Spanish sites let me know and I will be happy to help out in any way I can.

With this ROM, does the *#*# 2846579 #*#* no longer work?
I have the above benru89 installed, but I am no longer able to get to the service menu. When I input *#*#2846579#*#* is just blanks the numbers and remains in the dialer window.

I may very well not work with CM7. CM7 is already rooted. I'll load cm7 up and see what happens for me.

Can I ask why do you want to go into the service menu? If your trying to un-root you can do it through super one click.

If your trying to get into CWM (recovery mode) You can hold down the power button, you will see a series of prompts. Select "reboot" and choose recovery mode

Is data enabled in your wireless and network settings? I dont have a data package so I haven't come across this problem. I only use WiFi.

Well the spanish forum that I have found most of the information is here:
ROMs y desarrollo Huawei U8650 - HTCMania

If you could find out any more information and try some new Roms, it would be very helpful to everyone here

To check the status and options for unlocking the phone in the future, although it seems I'll have to wait 6 months before AT&T are obligated to give me an unlock code.
I have T-Mobile on a non-smartphone, and wanted to test their network on this one.

I figured it out. The problem was that the at&t APN settings were not configured on the phone. After I configured them my 3g was back. This guide helped me out in configuring the APN settings. How to Set Up AT&T 3G/4G APN Settings for Android on Unlocked International Phones! - YouTube
Searching on some random Spanish sites I found a thread of a couple of people making a rom with android 4.0 for the Huawei U8650. I was going to try it out but it was very aerly in development and almost nothing worked on the phone. No wifi, phone, 3g, almost nothing. I didn’t bookmark the thread so I can’t link to it but when I find it again I’ll be sure to link it. On another note, I found this room on an Italian site. It’s a cyanogenmod v7.2, android 2.3.7 with an iOS Style theme. My Italian is a bit rusty but from what I could gather, the rom is “stable with overclock to 748 MHz but it can be used for a short time at 768Mhz”
“Fluidity is still incredible even by setting the maximum frequency to 600Mhz without counting the Mobile Bravia Engine from Sony! In addition to the new video effects!”
“I also added the app box which is a cloud storage service that allows you, once registered, to have 50GB of space if you inscribe by the end of March!”
Here’s the download link iSBSY94_iOS_Style!-v2.0.zip
The video demonstration Rom - Huawei Sonic - iSBSY94_iOS_Style!-v2.0.wmv - YouTube

And the original thread [Custom Rom] iSBSY94_iOS_Style!-1.0 Versione Aggiornata, Stabile e Definitiva + Video - Vodafone Sonic / Huawei U8650 - Forum Android Italia - AndroidWorld.it


EDIT:
Found it. It was on HTC mania all along. The beta rom is a MIUI Android 4.0.3 60mb free internal memory

Here’s what works:
SD
Install apps
MIUI apps
Multi-touch
The sensor (sometimes fails) –Does not say what sensor
Charges and recognizes usb
Official MIUI bootanimation
touch buttons
sonds
Fluid UI management
Drivers OK
Android 4.0.3
MIUI2.2.17
English
Acelerometer
Microfone
Vibration
New Adreno drivers 200
Tapatalk
App2sd

What doesn’t work:
Phone
Wifi
BT
Radio
Camara
USB storage
When in lock screen it takes 10 seconds to turn on the display.

Default Thanks I am now rooted but I have a question

Thanks your root guide worked perfect except I had to do a factory restore to get my sd card working again. Any ideas on that problem. I also installed the rom and love it.
My ram went from 30 MB to 98 MB Free and I got rid of the bloatware. I am also using it on straight talk and so far it works pretty good with unlimited everything. Thanks for the guide.

A tip I learned today that I thought I'd share;

After putting this mod on to two phones, we saw wifi problems (repeated disconnects) due to using the same wifi mac address.

Here's how I changed the wifi mac address;
1) Turn wifi off.
2) Launch root explorer, navigate to /system/wifi/
3) Mount as rw (by clicking the "mount rw" button, top right)
4) Long press on nvram.txt - open it in the text editor.
5) Adjust the line that begins; macaddr=
(I put in the mac address that my fusion had when it was on the stock at&t rom).
6) Hit menu key, save + exit.

At this point wifi can be re-enabled and it will use the new mac address. The settings sticks after a reboot but will probably be reset if you do a factory reset / wipe user data.

Next time, I'll modify the file inside the .zip before I copy it to the sd card.

Demon edge - so I have to say again, thanks for the post. This mod has been awesome.
(This is my first android, I've had it for less than 2 weeks, and this was my first installation of a mod.)

I'm convinced now that the version you linked to was 7.1.0 (not 7.2.0). In the last couple of days, certain other threads and resources have gone crazy with the newly released 7.2.0 RC1.

Sadly, there is no Sonic (or Fusion) maintainer, and I'm clueless on what is required to take a version and make it compatible for the Sonic or Fusion. I'd love to be able to contribute, but my knowledge is not yet at that level.

Do you have a resource, or can you request/query to wherever you obtained the 7.1.0 build if there will be one for 7.2.0 RC2? (Here's where I'm supposed to pester someone to have them push the sonic/fusion as an unofficial build to the CM group.)

Thats correct. I have confirmed it is actually 7.1.0 also .. Here is the direct link to the post where I got this rom:

CyanogenMod-7.2.0 -- benru89 v3.0 -- Radio FM , Android 2.3.7 - HTCMania

Several people have asked benru89 to update it to the 7.2.0 RC2 but he seems that he hasn't yet replied to their requests.

There are some other "7.2.0" roms out there on that forum that I haven't tried yet. I have been so busy with work and family that I haven't had a chance.

I would also like to get into cooking my own rom but it seems very time consuming and there are very limited resources/tools available for one to do so.

Let me know if you find anything else out. I'm glad I was able to be of some help

Im an android newb, so go easy.

I 'only' want to root so I can uninstall the garbage that is on this phone. I'd like to uninstall the facebook, twitter, vlingo, etc. Do I have to do all of the cyanogenmod stuff - or just the superoneclick? I have the att go phone version of the fusion. Basically, I just want to free up internal storage so that I can use my eyefi program better (it save to internal by default).

I have no real interest in modding other than freeing up space. Thanks.

Flash CWM, backup your rooted rom, them flash the slimmed down AT&T mod I posted in the main area. Should suit your needs and allow you to go back to original when/if you need.

AT&T is the only ones that can help you with sim block codes. To generate a sim block error you are using a sim card that is "locked" to another phone's IMEI number. You will need to have AT&T remove the lock from your sim or transfer the sim's lock to the new phone. This is 100% an AT&T thing, not the phones fault.

Maybe I am not being clear. A sim block is on the sim itself. Nothing you can do to the phone will change that. You may find a rom that does not warn you about the block, however the sim will not connect to the carrier. The sim is blocked/locked to the phone it was sold with. Only AT&T can clear a sim block on an AT&T sim.

I'm embarrassed to say that I'm stuck on the part where I run "instalador.bat." I press a key and it says "waiting for device." I connect the phone (by USB) while off, it turns on and nothing happens.

I have the correct driver installed as I can connect to the phone and it shows as an external drive.

Any advice appreciated.

the instalador will detect ur phone then it asks to press any key again

Hi everyone,

I'm EXTREMELY new to Android phones; it took me a good three days to figure out what I was doing wrong and root my u8652. Now that I have root access, how can I free up some of the very limited internal storage space WITHOUT flashing a new rom?

I've tried a couple of different apps that freeze bloatware but they didn't seem to actually DO anything; right now I have AntTek Explorer, App 2 SD, and Titanium Backup root, but I still only have 31 MB available.

Can anyone help a newbie out? Thanks!

I have the AT&T Fusion or Huawei U8652 and it is rooted by using Superclick. I have tried to follow your instructions to install clockworkmod onto it, but I don't get the message "waiting for phone" at all. I'm not sure the drivers are installing right. I have an Linux and Windows 7 os. I have tried it on both.

Rooting the phone and installing CWM worked fine by following the instructions above.

But now I have a different problem: when the phone is off and I plug it in to charge (either from the plug or a computer), the phone launches the CWM recovery screen.

I'm using CWM 4.0.1.4. Is there a way to set this so it doesn't boot into CWM each time when plugged in?

Thanks.

Default Success... but I really don't know how.

I finally got my AT&T U8652 functioning (as a serious 'noob' who nothing about 'root', 'unlock', and 'ROM's a few days ago. The bad news is that I have no idea how I got past the worst hurdles. Here were my struggles, as best as I can remember them.

1. The drivers link listed above is dead, and I couldn't find another one. However, on about the 3rd reboot without them, I got a diagnostic method that asked if I wanted to install a generic one (ADB?). The process worked pretty well then.
2. In every case of trying to get the Clockwork thing to run, it was a pretty difficult dance to get it to kick in. In the end, I had to hold down the Vol. Down, then simultaneously plug in the USB cable and press the power button.
3. In the Clockmod menu, I found the choices a little bit confusing. Be sure to use the one that calls for the install .zip from sd card.
4. Be sure to leave the .zip whole. You don't want to extract it on the sd card. Clockmod does that for you.
5. Unexplained issue - Once I got the button dance going, it took about 4 tries to get the mod to take. At one point it was locking up on the ATT screen, then it would alternate between two Huawei screens (locked up). Then I went through probably 2 hours of not being able to do anything (brick!). I pulled the battery out, and walked away from it for 12 hours. When I came back I was able to install successfully and have a phone really working well.

A couple of notes so far for newbies like me:
1.While the C7 rom does wipe all the AT&T bloatware, you will see a lot of apps you are not used to seeing. I am working my way through discovering what each is, and deleting if I don't want them.
2. Also, this mod allows you to designate which apps are saved to the sd card. This is what lets you work within the meager memory that came with the phone. However, I bet some apps won't like running from there, so keep an eye on which ones. For example, since I loaded Angry Birds, the phone has slowed quite a bit, so I think it's going to go away.
3. I am currently running everything I wanted to have (other than Angry Birds), and I have about 3/4 of the on board memory still available.

BRAVO to me for figuring it out, and to all the community who contributed to the mods. This phone is going to be hugely popular (until AT&T realizes they are going to lose a lot of contracts over this phone), so I expect to see a lot more cool stuff come along.

Default ROM reviews?? Any work with GrooveIP

I'm trying to find the best way to make the Fusion as fast and as lean as possible, and I would love to run GrooveIP for calls over WiFi. Has anyone found a good, stable ROM mod that works with GrooveIP? Should I stick with the stock ROM and try to delete the unnecessary stuff? Any thoughts or tips would be welcome (FYI, I'm new to Android phones but I was able to follow the instructions on this post - currently running the C7 benru ROM).

Thanks!

Default Fusion ROMs

To answer one of the questions in my previous post, below is a link to a good thread with info on ROMs for the Fusion and instructions for using them. Keep in mind it is the google translated page of a spanish forum on HTCMania, though! Lots of good Sonic/Fusion pages on HTCMania if you are willing to work through the translations.

Default Multi-touch issue

Ok I rooted and modded with CM7.1.0 with no issues, but it seems that there is no multi-touch support in this mod? Unless I'm missing something, any ideas on why it's not working?

When you go to download it and it pops up a window that says "What would you like to do with this file?" Click "save" not "open" it is a .rar file, you will need a program like IZArc to extract it. Once you've extracted it just double-click "Instalador" which is a batch file and won't ask which program you want to use.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I did save it in my computer but when i go to open it a window open up and says windows can't open the file and it will give me 2 options of what do i want to do : use the web service to find the right program OR select a program from a list of installed programs. How can I get that IZArc program? Do I have to connect my phone to my computer while downloading the clockwork mod or it don't matter? your help is greatly appreciated. =)
