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

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

    How can I install CWM or other recovery? I need to add google account to the phone which came without google manager account.

    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.

    1. SuperUser appears now. Thanks
    2. Where can I get play store 4.0 in apk format? I can find only zip which needs recovery to install.

    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.

    MMS Port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: Blank
    APN Type: default,supl,mms,hipri
    APN protocol: leave as is

    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.

    So in stock form when you buy the phone, it does not have play store. But does it have google contacts, can you sync contacts in stock ?
