Default U8800 Official 2.3 Gingerbread Downgrade Issue

Hi Guys

I installed the official Gingerbread that is available from the Huawei site. Install was successful however phone boots fine for the first time but once i reboot it I am stuck in boot loop on Huawei logo. Recovery is reset to default so cannot flash anything that way.

I cannot root the phone via SuperOneClick as it needs logging switched on (Requires reboot).

When I access pink screen no drive is mounted in windows.

How can i remedy this problem?

Thanks for the reply, when i wipe data and cache it boots fine for the first time but when i reboot It loads the OS but there are many force close errors then it reboots itself and goes into logo boot loop.

I ended up going back to 2.2 and it has been stable, have got it rooted and am in the process of fixing recovery.

A bit late but thought i better update.

The above worked perfectly and got my phone back up and running again as it was in a sad state . Only downside is my MAC and IMEI are now different which I have still yet to attempt the proposed fix below.
