    If you have the zip file on your sd card then use the apply sd card option. Let us know if it works.

    it has been taken apart now,

    Hi i am trying to reinstall canvas on my huawei ascend bcus i cannot get to my phone settings or some of my widgets. I have read the threads on how to do. On the canvas thread i was able to put the file on my phone but when i tried to install it it would say application not installed. I also tried to flash back to stock but when i try to open the updata.app file through my sd card it says it cannot be opened. Do i need to unroot or what? Can anyone help me through the process please and thank you?

    Did you uninstall Canvas with Titanium Backup Pro? And if so, did you back it up first? ( I hope!)

    Try going to TiBu and clicking on menu and then batch. It should give you the option to restore your Canvas. Just try restoring the one app and not all the rest.

    If that doesn't help you may have to unroot and do a hard reset.

    Good luck with it and welcome to our happy little forum! :)

    I was thrilled when I came across this post. In desperate need to flash my Huawei in to stock, I attempted to follow your instructions, step by step...I downloaded and then had to unzip the download and moved it to my sd card. I can see the files. Then did a fast boot...my options are reboot, update via sd card, clear data/reset, and clear cache. I am not getting the option to choose scripts. Am I doing something wrong? Can you please help me figure it out? Thanks.

    Which method are you trying? If it's the first then I don't think you are supposed to copy the unzipped file to your sd card I think you are supposed to run the scripts from your computer and it will do the rest. For the second you have to have a custom recovery installed and there are no scripts.
    Why are you flashing back to stock? We may be able to help you another way with less trouble.

    Hey before I go back to stock I have a question. I noticed when I installed Icarus I lost quite a bit of space when I partitioned my card. When I go back to stock what are the steps so I can clear partition to get this space back. I actually want it to be like out of the box when I got the Ascend.

    Thanks!

    Oh by the way I have CWR installed (thats what partitioned it in the first place) I guess my question is if I do the restore on the computer can I remove partition that way to get all my sdcard space back? If yes or no please tell me how to go about this. Again Thanks!

    If you flash back to stock reformat your sd card (after flashing) and it will be back to normal.

    I could really use some help. I have Clockwork recover v3... and Im trying to do a stock restore (or preferibly simply a restore of a backup or install icarus) but

    1.) The restore of the backup I made is successful but boot gets stuck at "android" boot screen.

    2.) I copied the dload file from the OP to the root of my sd card per instructions and hold volume up, power, and call buttons, but instead of getting a progress bar for the installation of the stock rom, I get the Clockwork recovery screen.

    3.) I tried to install Icarus rom from my sd card in the usual way via instructions from the developers page. But the rom still gets stuck at the "android" boot screen. I now understand that CWR v3... isnt the required version and would love to downgrade to the required one but haven't been able to find out how to do that after hours of searching and trying everything.

    I am not new to installing roms as I do it often on my verizon droid so my mistake isnt likely to be a noob one but I could be mistaken.

    Any help would be appreciated as this is my friend's phone and I would rather not have broken it. Thanks!

    Try installing cwm through the "installing cwm recovery from your desktop" thread.

    For Icarus there is a link on the 2nd post (i think) of the Icarus 1.1 thread for CWM 2.5. It is CWM Recovery.zip or something close. Sorry but I'm replying from my phone and can't give you the direct link.

    yeah i just figured that out now it says to put the file in a specific lication wich i cant find ne idea where it is?

    1) Place nandroid backup files into a directory on sdcard:
    /nandroid/mem=211M/stock/

    you need to make a nandroid boot using a custom recover method such as cwm.
    you make the folder yourself
    fast boot works better imo.

    Fastboot Method
    (Note:This method will work even if the phone will not start or go into recovery)
    Download the Following Package:
    MetroPCSStock Recovery Package with Scripts
    678041208774eab0aed1005f287d71ab MetroStockRecover.7z

    1)Attach phone to USB
    2)Power Phone Off
    3)Enter Fastboot (End Call + Volume Down - while phone turns on)
    4)Run script relevant to your OS
    metroPCSStock-linux.sh
    metroPCSStock-mac.sh
    metroPCSStock-windows.bat
    5) Your phone will automatically reboot

    why does it say to open file if i cannot
