Add google apps to ICS 4.0.3


Download gapps-ics-20120215-signed.zip at goo-inside.me/gapps/gapps-ics-20120215-signed.zip and copy to sdcard

Unplug any usb connection and turn the phone completely off

Long press volume up + power button on the handset to startup you device in recovery mode

Select “Install zip from sdcard”
Select “choose zip from SD card”
Find and select "gapps-ics-20120215-signed.zip"
Select "++Go Back++"
Select "reboot system now"

On dial pad type ( *147258369# ) select "Display GMS apps" and "Ok"

With latest firmware posted on Huawei website (U8860ICSV100R001C00B977 2012-03-10), you need root acces to install the gapps.

To get root acces and gapps, you can still use the methods described by Arnt in post #52.

The dialnumber trick is not necessary anymore, after rooting and installing gapps all GMS are there.


You can also try to update with OTA (setting--->about phone--->online upgrade), after search i got the B977 update.
After downloading i tried to install but it didnt work for me, i think because my phone was rooted.
I have now installed as discribed above and works for me, i see no difference wit previous version mybe better performace battery, we will see.

Dears,

Before i install the new updated firmware ( i was on ICS 4 last version ) i made a backup of the software using " all backup ".

After applying the updated firmware, i recovered the apps and have the GAPS again.
the problem that gmail only sync the mails but no contacts.

Regards

For those who have problems with calendar synchronization on ICS, perhaps you can use the way I use:

1. Go to the calendar
2. Go to the Settings
3. Tap/click ADD ACCOUNT
4. Tap/click Corporate
5. Insert your Google email address & password
6. In the Account setup, fill the Domain\username with full of your Gmail address, for example; oke@gmail.com, for password, enter the password you have, for server, fill with m.google.com, checklist Use secure connection (SSL) Accept all SSL certificates, just tap/click Next buttons to continue, later you can choose wether you want to checklist all the options or severals...

I think the latest ICS has the disable/enable fast boot option removed. Thereby disanle you to go to Recovery. What's all this political nonsense of removing gapps? Huawei should really remove the "with Google" wordings from Honor's back cover as well
