Hi All and Welcome !!

I wanted to start a thread regarding the Huawei Ascend Y530 phone. Main reason I'm doing this is because there is nothing much about this phone
on the Internet and here as well.
Goal of this thread is that everyone that knows something about this phone, from basic info, to rooting and SIM unblocking, puts his/hers knowledge here, thus making it accessible for everyone to see.
This model is not one of the top models there are, but it is getting popular (by my opinion). And because of that, there should be more information about it, and the things you can do with it.

I'm doing this from a reason that I too need some info about this phone, since I recently got one and it is SIM blocked. So, I would like if there is anyone out there that can help me and others, to find solutions for our problems regarding this model.

Internet outside of this site was not that helpful, but I hope people here will be.

P.S. I'm expecting interactive behavior from all who is posting, so answers should come from everyone, not just from me (I'm still newbe ;))

POST EDIT !!!!! -------------->>>> THERE IS A WIKI PAGE FOR THIS PHONE ON THIS LINK: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/Huawei_Ascend_Y530

Here's how to get app previews in multitasking menu:
1. Download sqlite editor in play store (weavebytes)
2. Open and allow root access
3. Open database
4. go /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
5. go systemex
6. go data, and tap pgdn 3 times
7. number 77 will be am_capture_thumbnail.
8. tap edit and change the value to 1
9. reboot phone.

You're done!

Guys, i tried but it doesn't work for me.
When i reboot the phone, the value return to 0. Any ideas?
Regards.

At the very first post, of the very first page for our y530,
>IN THIS THREAD <
there is a link posted to the Y530 site of the xda-wiki where ALL info (except for magisk-compatibility) can be found! Even with step by step guide and every single download you need.
I hope you all will have some good hours coding, flashing, rooting; i feel flashed myself good night

I use B515, I think its the best of all, I may be wrong. I would like only link for stock recovery cwm to flash it back. on wiki page i have downloaded cwm 6.0.5.2 and I would like to take that out and install factory one. so If someone could provide me with a stock cwm I would apreciate it.

There is not any stock cwm..if you want to flash stock ROM you have to flash stock recover via fastboot then copy dload folder and press three buttons...:cowboy:

Yes actually, I need a stock recovery to flash it via fastboot. can you provide me with a stock recovery for it?

---------- Post added at 10:59 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:57 AM ----------

You will just have to extract recovery.omg via casebook and then copy load folder to ad card and press all three buttons vol up vol down and power button that's all

    WE have a decent CWM. Do we? Test right now!

    Hello boys and girls.
    It took some time but finally, thanks mostly to the previous work made by crazytiti with the Phicomm C230, I can release this CWM recovery image, tested with a Huawei Y530-U051 device, firmware B185. As always, this is released AS IS with the best intention for you to TEST, but no warranty at all. It's a CWM v6.0.5.1, before you flash, test with "fastboot boot recovery.img", if you think it's OK to rely on it you can flash it with "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img". Make a backup as complete as you can and please don't blame me for nothing that can happen to your phones. I repeat (once again) I am no developer, so if you distrust me, you better obey your guts.

    |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    What can I (luckily, you too) do with this CWM recovery?
    1) Make nandroid backup into external sd card (internal sdcard never has enough space... so)
    2) Restore from a nandroid backup (backups are dated in 1970, this is a common issue with QCOM). Needs more testing.
    3) It can mount system, data and cache partitions, so, technically we could flash any MOD we want that is intended for Jellybean 4.3
    4) Navigate through CWM menu with Vol+/Vol- keys and select option with power key.

    What can't I (and maybe you too) do with this recovery?
    1) No touch support
    2) Can't mount internal sdcard (and I am not interested on this to happen)
    3) You tell me.

    PS. I missed so much a good old nandroid backup! Happy weekend!

    One more stock modded firmware (in the meantime)

    I'm gonna be brief. This stock modded firmware has little new things to offer:
    1) It is based on B512 firmware.
    2) It replaces Kinguser with superSU.
    3) Upgraded extremebeats mod to v4.
    4) Defaults to work with most recent Xposed framework.
    5) Minor build.prop hacks. They are marked with a comment refering to XDA forum for CM10/JB ROMS. You can delete them or comment all of them or whatever.
    6) Easier to supercharge.

    INSTALLATION
    0) If you have not performed a nandroid backup recently, this is a good moment to do so.
    1) Donwload and uncompress this file into /storage/sdcard1/clockworkmod/backup. Be careful the name of the folder is the backup date so all the files are inside /storage/sdcard1/clockworkmod/backup/1970-xx-xx-xxxxxx directory.
    2) Boot into CWM recovery

    WARNING: After you flash system or the whole backup and when you try to reboot, CWM is gonna offer you to fix su. You must answer NO.

    UPGRADE from older modded stock firmware (EXPERIMENTAL):
    3) Go to backup and restore menu
    4) Go to advanced restore submenu
    5) Select "restore system", it will appear an asterisk
    6) Confirm restore
    7) Go to advanced options and perform a wipe dalvik cache
    8) Reboot (please, READ the WARNING in red)

    INSTALL from scratch (includes factory reset):
    3) Go to backup and restore menu
    4) Select the backup corresponding to the folder you uncompressed in th first step
    5) Confirm restore
    6) In main menu do a wipe data/factory reset
    7) In advanced options, wipe dalvik cache
    8) Reboot


    OPTIONAL:
    Use script manager to activate scripts at boot. Open Script Manager, activate Navigate as root option. Inside Script Manager go to /system/etc/init.d directory and, for each script (there are only two or three), tap on it and activate "su" and "boot" options. There are two scripts available there, the first includes my own supercharger options (all credits to zeppelinrox) and another one which will kill media server at boot (it will be activated again when needed). With these scripts I've been having more than 200 MB RAM free at boot with a clean installation.

    ATTENTION (UPDATE) : Some have been having problems with Gapps. So, I thought maybe this can help. This is a backup with Play Store + Play Services. Choose whatever you want.

    Hi guys. Another modded firmware. Just uncompress the date named folder inside sdcard/clockworkmod/backup and install as a backup. You can install system-only using advanced restore option + wipe dalvik.

    The highlights are little and the principle is to keep it minimal and open source:
    1. No live wallpapers at all
    2. Based on B515 firmware
    3. Degoogled and debloated (except for Google Keyboard, Play Store and Play Services)
    4. KitKat launcher
    5. Lollypop-like UI (thanks to @ciubi93). I managed to mod HwToolbox.apk and bundle it to the theme. I think the result is pretty, I tried to do the same with Phone and Contacts apps, but it was a complete failure. The screenshot shows the integrated HwToolBox to the overall theme.
    6. Better sound thru extremebeats and Ponqualizer
    7. 3G turbocharged with zeppelinrox's tweaks.
    8. Build.prop tested tweaks. These ones are related with dalvik heap. If you want a device with more free RAM you can change vm. dalvik.heapsize to 128 and reduce heapgrowthlimit, heapminfree and heapmaxfree values in build.prop (I modularized 3G tweaks and dalvik tweaks so they are easy to find, edit, delete).
    9. Minimal open source basic apps: Vanilla Music Player, Simple Explorer, CM11 calendar and e-mail client, lightning browser and system app mover. The latter is a recent addition that I just foun, extremely useful to change system apps to data apps (allowing the uninstallation of system apps) and viceversa.
    10. Rooted (includes SuperSU) and busyboxed.


    Important issues and recommendations:
    *After installing this, CWM will ask your permission to fix su, answer NO!
    * Users of ROEHSOFT RAM Expander app will loose access to the swap file and the ability to create a new one (I don't have an answer for that). Anyhow, if you screw your swap file, refer to this post to have a brand new one.
    * Install Xposed framework and Greenify with the boost option for an overall better experience, RAM and power usage.
    * You may want too a fully functional file manager like X-plore.
    * If you don't like the flat design, just choose another theme and you will go back to good old user interface.
