Default Huawei Honor 2 U9508, Install ROM, Install GAPPS, Root.

Huawei Honor 2 U9508











So this is the easiest and the safest way to upgrade your phone (new ROM Android), install GAPPS and Root.


I have done this with (B544) and (B550) U9508_EmotionUI_1.5_V100R001CHNC00B550 Android 4.1.2, so you also can do this with B628 and B629 and others:

Here is B804 Stable (Android 4.2.2 with EmotionUI 2.0):

MEGA: https://mega.co.nz/#!QwElUYCS!kyAB6u...m_rI5KgB64PLJU

First do a Factory data reset and a Erase internal storage (do not forget to make a copy of the backup (HuaweiBackup) on your computer or SD Card) and then flash it to B804.



Ow and before i install a new Firmware on my phone, i first used the App Back-up to backup all my Apps (including Google Play Store and Google Play-services)
and contacts and SMS and more, then i installed the new Firmware.

Then i used Back-up again and installed all my Apps back on my phone including Google Play Store and Google Play-services, and now Google Play
works and i do NOT have to install Chinese recovery, so if you had a old Firmware on your phone before you installed the New Firmware, you do not need Chinese
recovery
, just use the App Back-up that came with the Firmware.


You don't need Chinese recovery to root your phone.

Ow and you need to press 7 times on the build number to see developers settings, in B7*** and above.

And put a copy of your backup on a Computer, and on your SD-Card if the App have not done that already.

You have to sign into gapps before the backup app will allow the option to backup google services.


Here is recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe:

Here is Motochopper:

Here is AnzhiRoot_U9508:

Here is Genotools:

GAPPS

http://goo.im/gapps/gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip Android 4.1.2.

https://mega.co.nz/#!0lUkgYqL!LtoCVV...2KxjslfoeVFRkw Android 4.2.2.

Here is SuperSU 0.99:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1707684&d=1360134287



This is how you Replace Chinese Recovery with original recovery

1. Go to Settings and go to Developer options, and enable USB debugging.
2. Plug the phone in the computer, and Choose USB storage device (or Media device (MTP).
3. Restart phone and boot phone with Power & - volume
4. Open Recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe.
5. Now press 2 for The original recovery (1 is Chinese recovery), and press Enter.
6. If all is OK, the program will do its job and Reboot into FASTBOOT MOD, then he Flash the selected recovery and then he reboot the device 2 times.
7. Now your selected recovery have been installed.


Before starting the firmware you need to have:

If you unlocked the boatloader you cannot use official updates (Firmwares) from Huawei.

1. SD card of at least 2GB
2. Phone with a charged battery at least 50%

1. Plug the phone in the computer.
2. Unpack the archive with the firmware and throw dload folder to the root of the memory card.
3. Unplug the phone from the computer.
4. In the phone menu - Settings - Storage - Software Update - SD card Upgrade (or Settings - About phone -
System update - (Local update) Update via SD Card).
5.The phone will reboot and begin the upgrade process and you will see the following picture (be patient it can take a few minutes).

If you see a lot of Chinese letters after you boot, it means that you have installed Chinese recovery with recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe,
and you have to replace Chinese Recovery like you see above.


First backup all your Apps and your Massages and Browser history and Call logs and more with Back-up,
thats a App that came with your phone.




After the update the phone will reboot and start (also be patient).



Google Play Store

1. Connect phone to computer, (first install the Huawei USB Drivers) then put
GAPPS on you intern or extern Storage, now power down phone.

2. Power up your phone whilst holding Power & - volume.

3. Now your phone should be stuck in the "Huawei Ascend" logo, now connect to computer and run recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe
and press 1 and enter.

Then if he ask something about 1 and 2 option, and nothing happens do this:

Press CTRL+C then N. And it should start.
Make sure fastboot is OFF and USB debugging is ON


4. Now you should have custom recovery (woo), disconnect usb and remove battery.

5. put battery in and boot phone with Power & + volume.

6. So now you notice everythings chinese MYGOOOD, so do this:

Menu button 2 --> Menu button 1 [zip from internal memory]
Menu button 2 --> Menu button 4 [zip from external memory]

And select your GAPPS zip file.

Then a few seconds later GAPPS (Google Plays Store) is installed.

Then go back, Menu button 5 and then press menu button 1 (this will boot your phone).



Root your Phone

There are 4 ways you can Root this phone, first one is with Motochopper, and the second one is with AnzhiRoot_U9508, and the third is with Genotools,
and the fourth is with Chinese Recovery 6.0.1.9, do not forget to install the Huawei USB Drivers, and also HiSuite is useful to have.


It's easer with Motochopper and AnzhiRoot_U9508 and Genotools .


Motochopper

Instructions:

1. Download the file (Motochopper) to your PC.
2. Extract the entire contents of the zip file.

5. If you are using Windows, navigate to the extracted directory and execute “run.bat”. If you are using Linux or OS X, navigate to the extracted
directory in a terminal and execute “./run.sh”.

AnzhiRoot_U9508

1. connect dev to pc (usb debuging on)
2. run program
3. press one button "root"

Don't forget to restart your phone.

warnings: Dr.Web determines such program as virus (Tool.Rooter.18.origin)

Genotools

1. Connect your phone to your computer via a USB cable, select HiSuite.
2. Run GenoTool.
3. Go to tab 4.
4. Click "Root 1"

5. Now click on the Root Now button to begin the rooting process.
6. Now Root Genius will Automatically Root your Smartphone and install KingUser App.
7. Now your smartphone is Rooted.

Chinese Recovery

Only works if you installed recovery6.0.1.9_AscendHonor2.exe, like you see above.

Download and copy CWM-SuperSU-v0.99.zip (or any similar SuperSU) to your SD Card.

Shutdown your phone, restart by pressing Power + Volume Up buttons until you enter CWM screen.

Menu button 2 --> Menu button 1 [zip from internal memory]
Menu button 2 --> Menu button 4 [zip from external memory]

And select CWM-SuperSU-v0.99.zip file.

Then a few seconds later CWM-SuperSU-v0.99.zip (SuperSU 0.99) is installed.

Then go back, Menu button 5 and then press menu button 1 (this will reboot your phone).

Pleas note that, you only get your phone rooted after this.


Removing Chinese apps

Only works if you have Rooted your Phone.

1. Download Root App Delete and start it.
2. Now select System Apps and then select ProMode
3. Now select the App and select Uninstall.
4. thats all now the App is uninstalled and is gone from your phone.

If Root App Delete don't work use Final Cleaner & Task Killer


I have done it and it's very easy, if you already had MoreLocale 2 on your phone and selected your language then he will go to your language
in a view clicks, and if you had English in settings then you also still will have that, also with ADW.Launcher or (i hear better) with
Apex Launcher you have your App Drawer and more back.


Why is my notification bar (panel) gone?

To have a working notification bar, there are a few conditions to be achieved by the rom:
-the file cust/channel/*countryname*/xml/hw_defaults.xml must contain two lines:
<integer toolBoxSwitch="1"/>
<string toolBoxDisplayWidgetNameArray="com.huawei.android. toolbox,com.huawei.android.toolbox.ToolBoxProvider "/>
-the file system/build.prop must contain the line: ro.config.hw_toolbox=true
-the updater-script must contain the correct symlink, like: symlink("/cust/channel/cn", "/data/cust");
When using an original update from a country different than the phone's country, there is no symlink made, so all the files in the cust partition are not
seen by the phone, which leads to no notification bar and other issues!
In a custom rom the symlink is forced in the updater-script, so if everything else is ok, everything works!
Also, if someone flash a rom of Batty86 for example, and clean data after flashing, the symlink leads to a deletion of the cust partition, so again we have
no notification bar and so on.

I hope it's a bit more clear now.



Good luck everybody.

With thanks to maikzen, for how to flash GAPPS and octop and soudy1994 and Pimorez and vkukfor and androidxda how to Root and Batty86 for why the notification bar (panel) is gone.

Then it sounds more like you are typing your Password or User name wrong, had the same problem also once.


UPDATE:
Have you ROOTED your phone, because GAPPS won't work without a rooted phone.

2- log into youtube, but it only comes to the same google login problem :S
3- factory reset
4- changing time

its really frustrating, i cant login to any google account, like youtube, playstore or gmail
