Question Froyo to Gingerbread, update failed

Hi, i tried to update from android 2.2.2 to 2.3.5 but i got a problem... i put the "dload" folder into my 16GB sdcard and press both volym keys while pressing the power button. Its unpacking and everything but when it changes to "installing" i get a message that the "update failed".

How do i fix this?

Things i have tried: Formatted sdcard and put "dload" folder into it
Downloaded an other gingerbread update
Factory reset and then tried update
Start the update from the internal sdcard
Start the update without the battery inserted and USB connected

Please help me!

Dload on root of your sd card. After that you must press both Vol + and - with Power key to boot on Pink Screen.

Had the same issue
from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2 ok but then nothing !!

Problem was my Motherboard of the phone
could go from 2.2.1 up to 2.2.2 and that was it
It even erased my IMEI number

Luckily it was under warranty
So they replaced my motherboard and now all is ok again

I had the same problem. So, I will point 2 things:
1. It may be a slow card. Try to add the dload folder in the internal card.
2. In case you use the B512, you need to put the UPDATE.APP and UPDATE_G.APP in the dload folder at the same time.

i downloaded this rom: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1728604 an it seems to work.
The phone says that i got the .35 kernel and android 2.3.7 but it seems like that rom is bad because my Ideos restarts sometimes, gonna find an other one. Got some tips of any good GB rom?

Okay, im using android 4.0.3 atm so if anyone else got the same problem as me, just use CWM to install a custom 2.3.7 rom or do like me: stock 2.2.2 -> custom 2.3.7 rom -> custom 4.0.3 rom ^^

A Custom ROM will always work !!
But you will and cannot upgrade with the Original Releases by HUAWEI
( please check if you still have your IMEI )
I had the same trouble as you did
And if you still have warranty then send it back !!

PS :
I tried fast MicroSD cards and slow 2GB 4GB 8GB and 16GB no luck at all
Internal memory same issues
With Battery or without still no luck

If original update fails while using sdcard try to copy dload folder into internal disk then unmount the sdcard and try to update again.

If your imei isnt nulled %99 it should update.

Btw please consider backing your imei before doing any update with 5iromtoolbox.
