The recovery image linked in post #53 named "recovery_v8.img" --> http://www.mediafire.com/?2e8prgk99e3n0f7
Doesn't seem to be able to make Nandroid Backups. It seems to correctly create a boot.img and a system.img, but while creating the data.img it crashes, leaving the data.img either with a size of 0 bytes or sometimes with a few MB but corrupted. After a bit of testing I found that the problem doesn't seem to be the backup process, but just the time of how long since the boot of the recovery image. It also reboots if I don't do anything.

Is there any other recovery that works for the U8860, besides the original one and this one? I would like to have these two features from a recovery image:
-) flashing custom stuff
-) creating (and restoring) nandroid backups

I searched the web, but I couldn't find anything satisfactory:
this links to the same recovery image:

and here they have another image but it doesn't seem to boot for me, if I try to boot it, it just keeps hanging on the huawei logo

I managed to get the dmesg output a few milliseconds before such an unwanted reboot -->
Code:

EDIT: Okey, I seem to have finally found a recovery that seems to work, but the problem with it its in chinese... I attach it since for downloading it from this site you first have to register and reply to the post..

It's a bit easier to find your way around this recovery menue by looking at the screenshots with english text from here:

EDIT2: I checked the chinese forum again, and found another post that has the same recovery but with english language! --> there -->
