Hi Guys,

Below is the Chinese and a rough English translation of a walkthrough the user genokolar posted on a Chinese Forum b b s . anzhi . c o m on how to root the Huawei Ascend D1 Quad (U9510), and since I have less than 10 post and is unable to post links, please link them together yourselves to visit the respective pages, thanks!

1. Turn on USB Debugging on your phone (Settings -> Developer Options -> Check USB Debugging)
2. Connect your phone to your PC via USB Connection
3. Run the application and use the appropriate options
4. Some operations require root, so please root your phone first
5. Brief descriptions of the options will appear if you hover mouse above the option

Instructions on how to use this application:

5) The application will finish up patching after the restart
6) Hold the power button, and when the Power Off menu shows up, click on Restart instead.
7) Your phone now has google applications installed.

I have also attached an image of what the tool looks like with translations of the only 2 options which you will need to use, and the Huawei USB drivers the forum user 淚傾城 provided on anzhi bbs.

The below is a method brunes came up with:

If you order one of these from China, you will find that it does not have the Google apps and utilities on it. So to get them on, first you will have to root it.

The first method I tried was via the recovery mode, which I determined you access by holding volume up + power until it reboots into it. However, you will find unfortunately that the recovery mode on this device is locked and it will only flash signed updates, so that method is out.

I tried a bunch more methods and exploits until I finally found one that worked - that was this Root_with_restore method on XDA. Follow the instructions in this thread and you will have rooted your device.

Now that my device was rooted, the next problem was how to install the Google apps. I downloaded the latest ICS apps from goo.im - but remember, you can not flash these. I tried installing ROM manager from the market and using that to flash CWM recovery, but that didn't work. What DID work, and what I ended up doing, was simply unzipping the gapps.zip onto my MIcro SD card, then (as root on the phone), copying the entire contents of the "system" folder from that SD card over the /system directory on the phone. After I did this, and rebooted, I now had all of the Google apps working!
I was able to add my account and install all needed apps from the market to make this phone really shine.

My next goal is to figure out how to get CWM working on this phone. I am doing a bunch of reading on the topic and might have something to report later this week.

I just had a family friend bring me one over from China today and obviously it didn't come with any of the Google applications. I was able to find the Gmail apk online along with the GoogleLoginService and the GoogleServicesFramework apk. Everything installed fine, but I am still unable to sync contacts over from Gmail, and occasionally I will get an error saying that GoogleServicesFramework has crashed.

Any insight pointing me to the right direction is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I wrote up how I did this over at Modaco because they have a forum for this phone and XDA does not

I hope XDA makes a forum for this phone because it is a great device and I think is going to be very popular at least in Asia

Hey brunes, amazing work, I've also found a easier way to root it and flash on google applications with simple UI for newbies like me, I will update my original post to put that in, and put yours in too if you don't mind?

And for sure, I think as soon as this phone receives a global launch it will be pretty popular too, seeing how it's probably the only quadcore pentaband umts phone available on the market right now

I thought you guys would be interested in this



I've been using it for a couple of days and it has been very stable. If anyone else want to try it, I will post translate the instructions I got from the Chinese forums here.

No problem, I'll do the translation and post it up by tonight
But just remember that it's still built on a beta rom release from EMUI so it may be unstable, even though I haven't experienced anything (ie. the phone auto restarting), I can't guarantee for you guys :S

Amazing phone for the price
I just got mine 2 hours ago. My friends are all HTC fanboy so they told me to stay away from Huawei but I was just thinking to try it out and then return it but I think i am gonna keep it and sell my GNex. It is quite an amazing pone for such a little price. although the phone might look bit thick but the thickest part of GNex is actually slightly thicker than the D1. I just wish there are more dev support.

I find the camera app that came with it really annoying since you cant turn the sound off... also if it had 2Gb of ram this would be the perfect phone for me!

Anyways anyone else have any news on update to 4.1.2? Or is there other site/ forum with more support?
