So I rooted my Huawei G520

Download this flashing tool

Followed the prompts as best as i could

Nadda!




Just sits there grinning at me

I know I've missed something really simple

Tried it with/without the phone connected - Nadda

Click Download and nothing happens

Do you have the USB drivers installed for your device and is your device being recognized by Windows Device Manager? If you don't have the drivers installed for your device I would recommend installing them and if you can't find the specific USB drivers for your device I would recommend trying Koush's Universal ADB device drivers which can be downloaded from here.

I'm ignorant , there i said it. The flash tool is good and dandy, but why not just use something like ROMtoolboxpro, for the recovery install. The previous answer is good though, you need drivers, but I must ask, if you didnt have the drivers installed correctly, then how did you root????
i would suggest CWM app for recovery install, but it crashes on me. Like I said Iam ignorant because I don't know your device,

You do understand you have to buy ROMtoolboxpro right?, if you purchase it, it shouldn't close automatically. Dude it is quick and it gets the job done.. Credit = whoever made this little "work of art"

EDIT: If your trying to flash a rom, why don't you just transfer it to your sd card and flash from recovery if you have recovery already?

OK , so my google skills suck today, but if you know Arabic ,this is perfect.

Installed those drivers - still no go

I am missing something really fundamental:

My Huawei is rooted (I think)
USB drivers are installed
Mobile is in USB debug mode (is that right?)
Mobile is connected

I have been working on this for days and seem to get further away not nearer

Someone mention Bootloader code - what the devil is that?? Anyone know?? Do i need one?

I tried a different rooting tool and it flashed CWM onto my phone
Actually managed to boot in recovery mode
Tried to flash a rom
Deleted cache and reset the phone
It tries to install the rom - verifies, etc then aborts - dang!
Same when i tried another rom
Same when i tried to install gapps package

Could it still have a locked bootloader if it's rooted with CWM installed?
