    Hi fala, When you unpacked the Download, did you open the Guideline and print a copy of the procedure?

    If so, I would remove the battery for a minute or two, then refit and follow the Upgrade Operations again.

    I had to do this a couple of times with one of my U8150 phones before the Upgrade installed.

    Make sure your battery is fully charged before you start. Cheers Neil.

    You're welcome. Glad to know you got it sorted as 2.3.5 makes the phone seem like a new model. Neil.

    Hello mayormex! you should download the android 2.3.5 beta version and it's such an amazing version makes your phone rocking for ever, and this version contain no errors or missing files or settings, i still using it till now and thanks god everything is working very well.
    here it is the version : Downloads - Huawei Device Co., Ltd..

    But please be sure that your purple screen it means that you copied the package to a wrong directory , where your devices can't access it, so follow the instructions step by step to make it works. ( instructions are putted in the zip file with the package )

    Hope you make it :)
