    Hi all

    first of all I apologize if this is not the right place to put my inquiry in, but I could not find the specific forum for this device.

    I have serious problem with this android mobile phone. it is pretty good phone very useful with dual sim function on of them is 3G with WiFi Hotspot but the problem that I have rooted the phone with superoneclick and I have installed a lot of apps in it modifying some language files then when I restart the phone to let the changes take effect then the mobile keep restarting for infinite. Tried to get in to the recovery mode by using Call Button+Volume up+Power but the screen became blank. I spent the whole day searching the the internet to find the solution but with no clue. the problem the device is new and not supported that much in the public forums. could not find Stock Rom. Huawei website and bulletin was not useful.

    is there any way to do it through USB or sdcard and How?

    thanks in Advance

    Hi Despo,
    Here's an extract from a write up on Rooting & ROMing:

    1. Installing Custom Recovery
      • Extract PDAnet to a folder on your PC eg. C:\Downloads\PDAnet_files
      • Extract Ultrajack to a folder on your PC eg. C:\Downloads\UltraJack-recovery
      • Enter bootloader mode:
        • Turn off the phone
        • Hold down the POWER button, the VOLUME DOWN button and the END CALL (RED) button simultaneously for 5 seconds. The phone switches on and gets stuck on the Ideos logo screen.

    It might pay to have a look at this set of instructions and see if it helps.

    If you go to this link:HUAWEI IDEOS - Huawei Device Co., Ltd.. and search for your phone ie. U8520 Reach > choose your language > Software > there is a Kernel (Gingerbread) there to Download. Cheers Neil. ;)

    Here's a link to the Firmware: Johnny Paranoia's Other Blog: Huawei U8520 Duplex

    There seems to be only 2 available.
    I think it may be necessary to follow the Huawei Upgrade Procedure to get the phone back to "out of the box state".
    Quote from User FAQ's U8800. (This seems to be standard procedure for Huawei Smartphones.
    2.1 Forced Upgrade
    The forced upgrade method is as follows:
    Note: After the forced upgrade, all user data (contacts, text messages, and multimedia messages) will be lost.
    1. Go to Support - Huawei Device Co., Ltd.. and search for the latest U8150 version, download it to the local drive, and uncompress it to extract the upgrade file.
    2. In the SD card root directory, create a new folder named dload. Take the extracted upgrade file, UPDATE.APP, and copy it to the dload folder.
    3. Insert the SD card into the mobile phone.
    4. When the mobile phone is powered off, press the Volume +, Volume -, and Power keys at the same time to initiate the forced upgrade.
    5. After the upgrade is complete, restart the phone, and continue to use as before.
    Make sure your phone battery is fully charged before carrying out any Firmware Upgrades, and do not do anything with the phone until the procedure is finished otherwise you mat end up with a "BRICK"

    The above info is usually in the Download Firmware. Neil.

    Hi aven4d, I've just done 2 (two) boots into Recovery Mode to test the procedure and had no trouble doing it.

    YOU MUST PRESS the GREEN button and the VOLUME UP button and the POWER on button ALL AT ONCE and HOLD THEM for about 10 seconds.
    This enables you to due a Backup Recovery. Cheers Neil.

    When you Rooted your phone did you install Titanium Backup and did you do a Nandroid backup? Neil.

    How to ROM Dronix onto Huawei Ideos U8150 | alex the african
    This link from Post to Despo is what you should follow. Read it through thoroughly and you'll see that there many steps to take BEFORE just "Rooting and ROMing" is carried out.

    You need to Download quite a number of Apps beforehand. See note about size of Micro SD card suggested. If it all goes South - you need a backup of your original ROM to recover with.

    Read the comments below the main Post and you will see that quite a few ran into similar problems like you have. Try a few suggestions that are listed.
    Removing the battery for a couple of minutes then using the suggested boot buttons after re-installing the battery may help. Good luck Neil.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help but it pays to research quite a bit before "Rooting" as problems can crop up and bite you.
    There are ways to "unbrick" an Android if you do the Google. Let's know how you get on. Neil.
