I sent it in assistance but they didnt' do anything. and I wasnì't at home so my sister just collect the phone and now the warranty is expired. should I replace only the touch screen? I saw on amazon some kind of kit for $15
I dont know exactly what you should replace, but I think it is the digitizer.
Digitizer is a layer of screen beneath the glass and it registers the touches, so it must be that.

Sounds from rooted device

Hi everyone,

has anyone the sounds from this device?

I would like to use some of them in another phone - might be as mp3 or other format, but the most important is if anyone has the sounds/ringing signals a.s.o.


best regards,

The Doc

Have you managed to get the unlock code? In case you managed, Is there any possibility that I could get it too?
Oh I unlocked BL and rooted that phone centuries ago.
As far as I know that site where I got the code is now closed. It was some sort of Huawei's site, with easy instructions and everything.
Anyway I'll do a research tommorow and post here if I find out how to get that code.
Cheers bro.

EDIT: Here: https://emui.huawei.com/en/plugin.php?id=unlock&mod=detail#_=_
Follow the instructions and you should get your unlock code.

Did you installed the adb drivers correctly?

Yes, the problem is that I have trouble finding the specific Y300 drivers: I downloaded a file called "Huawei_Mobile_Driver_v1.0.exe", but after the installation my phone is seen as "SAMSUNG Android Phone" > "Android Composite ADB interface" by Device manager (see the pic.), I tried other drivers but I cannot seem to find one that works.

I did it, thank you so much :D

Is there any cool rom that you can recommend? (a light one because this phone is sluggish ;) )


P.S.
Drivers aside, I was also doing something wrong: I didn't put the phone in fastboot mode (pressing POWER while keeping VOL-), once you put it in fastboot mode Windows sees the phone as new device and you have to reinstall ADB drivers.

I'm glad I helped. :D

Best one I could recommend.
I tried a few of them while I had that phone, from 4.1 to 4.4, and this one is by far the best. It is fast(not much to expect from Y300 but ok), reliable and it has no bugs.

I'm trying it out now, seems fast, do you think that's better than a cyanogenmod rom? (I never tried one but I was curious).
Yes it is, by far.
Stock roms work best, on this device.
CMs are full of bugs here, so I suggest you to stay at this rom.
If you want to experiment, go for it, but as for speed and reliability, this one is better by far.

(Sorry for the late reply)
I'm doing fine with this rom and I'll stay with it, don't feel like experimenting now. The only thing a little disappointing is Shuttle, too slow to me, now I'm searching for a lightweight music app (I had one before before but I forgot the name :confused:).

I recommend Phonograph, it is preety fast, at least on my Xperia M2 lol, it has all the features, and it is beautiful. :D

    Huawei Ascend Y300 Unlock & Root [How To / Tutorial]

    This great little Android 4.1 smartphone has been released to the German market a week ago. At a price tag of merely 150,00 Euro, it's a steal.

    But no fun without root, right ?

    Now, Huawei locks and secures the bootloader, which makes flashing a custom recovery impossible without messing with the bootloader code itself.

    Luckily, i found out that you can request a bootloader unlock-token on the Chinese Huawei website. After unlocking with
    Code:
    fastboot oem unlock XXX16-digits-codeXXX
    we can flash a china-made (aka chinese-language only) ClockworkMod v6.1, that has been compiled for the Y300. After installing SuperSU from CMW, you GOT ROOT.

    I have written an extensive dummy-style tutorial on my tumblr blog. Unfortunately, the forum wont let me post outside links. Please go to this URL:

    huawei-y300.tumblr.com

    Have fun! :D

    You can't install a stock rom, because your IMEI did'nt allow it. The Y300 are saled under two different versions. The one from telefonica and the other for the open market. Open market phones can install the b176cz and the official b175 from huawei. The telefonica devices can only install the official update from huawei, but you got no triggers in the notificationbar. (But theres a fix for telefonica devices made by me, see attachment)
    The solution ist the OEM Info Hack Tool, wich craete a backup of your IMEI, write a custom IMEI, let you flash a rom (b176) and after that it restore your backuped IMEI. Now you are on b176 with telefonica devices. The readme is inside the package.

    Btw, other backups and roms could be found here. But remember, it's for Huawei Y300-0100 (U8833-1)

    I'm going to buy this phone for my mother, it's good?
    Good signal? for US$ 130 is kinda'right?

    For you it would be around 190$ in comparison to 150€. 1€ equals 1,31$ at the moment.

    The signal is way better than my SGS+ I used before I got my Y300. And I can recommend it to everyone who is not searching for something too expensive. It runs at an average speed and the OS is nearly up-to-date with 4.1.1. The only thing which is disturbing for me is the EmotionUI 1.0 which Huawei uses. But besides that it's perfect for that price! :victory:

    still have one crazy idea what i havent tried...
    maybe shankars method can work for you.

    only on your own risk!
    i would first put back the twrp and wipe out everything, i mean everything from the phone
    then reboot into bootloader mode and flash back the original recovery, which can be extracted from
    the new firmware build.
    relock the bootloader now and try the UPDATE.APP in the dload folder, booted up with both volume buttons pressed.

    maybe it could work, but i can render your phone to a brick like mine, because if the update not going to finish you also not going to have other choice than sending back to service (takes around 4-6 weeks!)

    i find backup of huawei y300!

    after restore the backup my phone was repaired:)

    It will not turn on anymore. Even after factory reset. It says "Turning Wi-Fi on..." but nothing happens.

    Here's what you have to do:

    1. Your bootloader must be unlocked, if it is locked, this won't help you.
    2. Download the B176 stock recovery from here:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/dvnwg21k9ib6don/Recovery Stock [B176].rar

    3. Download Android SDK:

    developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

    4. Go to fastboot. Hold power + up and down volumes for 10 seconds.
    5. Connect your phone to your pc.
    5.a extract the stock recovery rar and copy the recovery-new.img to the address of the next step.
    6. Go to the folder adt-bundle-windows-x86\sdk\platform-tools then hold ctrl + shift then right click on an empty space and click open command window here.
    7. Type "fastboot flash recovery recovery-new.img"
    8. Turn off your phone and turn it on again.

    Then you will be redirected to the stock recovery and do some wipes and boot you into your phone. Good luck!
