Talking [RECOVERY][ROM]Huawei U8500

Hey,

I recently bought this phone Huawei U8500, and I had a long search on the net where can I get a working recovery, finally I found a modified clockworkmod recovery.

It seems that this phone is highly unpopular.


I just wanted to share my finding.

Here you can download this modified version: Download

Steps to install recovery:
1. Download the clockworkmod
2. Unrar it somewhere on your computer
3. Turn off your phone
4. Press & Hold volume down key + call end (red) key and then press power key.
5. Launch the .bat file on your computer + connect your phone via USB
6. When it's finished, take out the battery and wait 5 seconds before putting it back in
7. Then you can access the recovery by holding volume up key + call(green) key

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One thing I can recommend If your phones android build version doesn't end with "712", I suggest you to update it to the beta release, you'll have more functional dual-touch.

Here is the beta froyo update: Download

To install it:
1. Unrar it to your computer, and find a folder named "dload" with the biggest size.
2. Copy that "dload" filder to root of your SD card
3. turn off phone
4. Hold volume up key + end call (red) key and the press power key. Wait for it to load, it will say something like "Updating system" Wait for it to finish, if it says fail, just try again
5. After it says "Update complete" or "Update successful" just restart your phone and you'll have the new beta firmware.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the Russian site I found some unofficial ROM's too.
I haven't tried them yes but if someone is willing here you can download them:

Firmware 2.2 29.01.2011 by Pavlo78
u8500_mao_rls7b2
u8500_mao_rls7++by_march_2
u8500_mao_rls8_by_march
u8500_mao_rls8_by_march

To install one of these ROM's do the following:
1. Copy the ZIP file on root of your SD card, the ZIP file, not RAR.
2. Boot up your phone in recovery mode (by holding volume up key + call(green) key)
3. With your optical trackpad select "Install zip from sd card"
4. From the list choose your ZIP file
5. And then just wait till the installation is complete and then just restart the phone!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I highly recommend you to back up the original firmware before installing new ROM's

You can do that in recovery mode, just click on nandroid and follow the on screen instructions it will backup your current firmware + your currently installed apps.



I'm not responsible for bricking your phone, if something doesn't go well. By doing the things I wrote, you may void your phones warranty.

Don't forget to thank me :P

Kind regards

I am using Huawei U8500 (Local branded as GrameenPhone Crystal). I have backed up my current ROM using ROM Manager. Can anyone confirm that the back-up ROM contains all the information including the Customized Branding???

Hi Monirr,
Can u confirm whether the link u provided is for only software upgrade or I can use it as a complete ROM backup (So that I can use it later in case of any failure to Upgrade the OS)

Yah This one is the complete stock rom. I checked and found gps preloaded rom and this one is identical.

So no worry about Warranty. just load it when you need to go to gps Customer care.

I did download the beta firmware.
And updated the phone's firmware a few minutes ago.

I have the dual touch now, yay (and a little better keyboard).

Many thanks from a Droid noob.
