    I have done the update,,, it is awesome, easy to do, many updates, remove operator logo, perfect keyboard, and add Cloud+ services.

    all works perfectly after update no bugs. lol

    Did you use two micro sd's for the update? Can it still work without it. Because I have updated to a different stock 2.3.5 and I didn't use two micro sd's

    I used two micro sd's, as they mentioned in the guide book :D

    what do you meant by "Can it still work without it.", I misunderstand it :confused:

    What I meant was if you just use a single micro sd card for the update, will the update work?

    sure, because when you finish from the first step, then you can turn off the mobile and use the same sd in second step. :cool:

    I had some problems installing it as I used one micro sd, but other than that it is working pretty well and I managed to get everything back that I had before the backup.
    Thanks for putting the update up!

    Your 3g isn't working because after you update the phone forgets your apn. The same problem happened to me. There are two ways to fix it.
    1: Look up your operator's apn and go into your settings and fix it manually.
    2: Download this app called Tweakker. It fixes it for you really quickly in simple steps. Here is the link:

    Welcome to androidforums. For this upgrade, nearly any software from 2.3.3 will work. I upgraded from an Australian 2.3.3 to a different 2.3.5 and then to this and it seemed to work. Give it a try and see what happens

    The upgrade was nice and without problems.
    I just wonder I cannot find Greek keyboard and I was force to download on from the play store.
    In the older version there was an option for change language from Greek to English and the other way.
    Is there something I can do about this?

    This firmware: HUAWEI_U8650_Android_2.3_V100R001C151B863SP02_India_Trench

    Is not good for the USA ATT Fusion u8652, although similar to to u8650, this firmware lacks the proper GSM operating frequencies to connect to the ATT GSM 3G network. Everything else works, but no 3G. APN and preferred networks are set properly.

    I did not make a backup of my original AT&T setup via Clockworkmod (my fault). If anyone could share a stock ATT Fusion back up I would greatly appreciate the help.

    Hey guys, thanks for the update, working on an Australian Huawei U8650 even if the Serial's not the same, it's pretty cool to go on a stock Android 2.3.5 with that phone.
    Anybody knows if there would be a way to root this one ?

    I was able to root my Australian huawei with one of the method on this forum but now with this update i'm back unrooted again and I miss my root Apps (But I don't want to go back to 2.3.3 again..) ?

    Also I was not able to restore my backed up my Notes ( cause now it's Richpad and not Notepad or something), anybody got the 2.3.3 notes.apk or something ?

    My Huawei Sonic is Version 2.3.3
    Build Number U8650V100R001C257B823sp03.
    Is this an earlier version than the update U8650V100R001C151B863sp02 ?
    I would appreciate your advice & some brief detail regarding differences between the two versions.
